BLGP EP 259: What I'm Playing (Pine, Amer. Fugutive, Etc.)


This week, facing the dead space between now and Black Friday games season, we take a huge inventory of games that still don't work on Linux, talk about 2 fixes that helped get some of our games back up and running, and then cleanse our palette with a huge list of excellent titles that we've been playing this week. AND: the most offensive first-play livestream we've ever done. Something for everyone/Nomomonomotwoohnyne!

-cpuid kernel fix for Ryzen 7 CPU users (from a protondb.com user):
equired Tweak: clearcpuid=514 ( https://askubuntu.com/questions/19486/how-do-i-add-a-kernel-boot-parameter ) Had to use AMD Pro Driver, because of missing mesa support at install time, for my GPU. It runs really well, except some light artefacts. ( https://github.com/ValveSoftware/Proton/issues/175#issuecomment-524617631 )

Big Time Adventure In Dying Light

This is about as much fun as I am capable of having: we go on a berserk, boozy, anecdote-riddled assault in "Dying Light" to recover a journalist's lost materials. Along the way, we talk the difference between strategy versus tactics, tell a few stories, and fall more than a few as well. Adventure-fueled hijinxs galore ensue. www.bestlinuxgames.com

CSGO: Everyone Hates Skookie

Can't win if I suck, can't win if I kill them, can't make my teammates happy, can't make the opposition shut up, can't skate by being quiet, can't be listened to when I talk, can't whisper, can't yell, can't represent myself as nobody, can't represent myself as the critic behind bestlinuxgames, can't record through steam, can't be believed to run linux, can't explain, can't get by without NOT explaining (mkv/vid compression codec part), can't lose without being criticized for sucking and can't win without being accused of cheating, yes, truly , in this match: THERE IS NO FUCKING WAY FOR ME TO WIN! LOL! Enjoy the drunkenness!
