Best Linux Games Podcast: Episodes

Sunday, November 20, 2022 - 2:53pm

Happy Thanksgiving everybody! This week, we celebrate the Early Access release of a game that scratches a 17-year-old itch of ours: roguelite gladiator management and combat with permadeath. Yep, just like you'll find yourself reciting through the holiday season, "WE WHO ARE ABOUT TO DIE" (salute you)! PLUS: Marauders still borked, what we are Foss thankful for, and even a great deal ("Call To Arms"). GOBBLE GOBBLE MUTHAFUCKAS!

To read the simple steps needed to fix marauders for Linux users (mandatory reading for all penguin followers) check out this link. It's that simple. So next time a dev says that it's too complicated, these days? Tell them to fuck themselves and do not give them your money.

This week, still of our meds, we talk about how much it sucks that CODMWII is fucken BORKED, then flipped a coin between reviewing "Brotato" or ranting about our strats in "Marauders." "Marauders" won. ALL THIS AND SONIC FRONTIERS!

This week, still off our meds (and totally losing our minds) we hit you with our full review of the awesome "Rampage" parody, "Terror of Hemasaurus." And to further the destruction, celebrate the release of logic blocks in "INstruments of Destruction," and find some time to talk about the Linux debut of the "Uncharted" franchise. ALL THIS AND MOAR!

This week, as my sanity slips further away heading into my second week off my meds (yay: going psycho), we are pleased to present this relatively babbly, theater-of-the-mind overview of the incredible PVP FPS looter-shooter, "Marauders." Combining the best aspects of OG Counter-Strike circa 2001, the high stakes improvisational intensity of "Duskers," all wrapped up in a white-knuckled, balls-to-the-wall, counterfactual multiplayer WWII-in space-in-1999 heart-attack-inducingly intense looter shooter, this is our pick for sleeper hit of the Fall Season. It seamlessly blends incredible action, astonishingly fantastic sound, stealth, brutality, looting, and so much more, all in a smart, beautiful, high stakes package that (even in Early Access) will blow your minds. Listen to this episode, and if your literal (or figurative) vagina is not soaking wet with piratically induced PVP loot-lust, then you can find a different game to sate your murder-boners. Otherwise? This feature offers a good overview of some of the many reasons why we feel this game is locked on a trajectory that could make it truly phenomenal.

This week, we mark the passing of one of my oldest friends and then (for veteran players, at least) mourn Hello Games' atrocious and insulting update to "No Man's Sky: Waypoint." We also talk some "Marauders," and our thoughts on the recent mass stabbing here in Vegas.

This week, we take a moment to mark the 5th anniversary of the October 1st shootings here in Vegas, as well as take a sec to marvel at the sheer destruction of Hurricane Ian in FL. Then! We hit you with the sidescrolling, totally insane, spider-driven multiplayer action of "SPIDERHECK," introduce you to 2 of your new best-loved female badasses in "Soulstice," and then explode your face off with our full review of the gloriously off the hook arcade demo-derby racing hybrid, "TRAIL OUT!"

This week, we take the show entirely off the rails and into the bizarre, maudlin, pain-powered hallucinogenic realm of incomprehensible babbling about "No Man's Sky" and other points ephemeral. NEXT WEEK: TRAIL OUT reviewed, "Soulstice," and moar. For NOW, though... this insane meltdown of an episode.

This week, in spite of losing our two front teeth, we bring you glorious games (I"Judgement," "Freedom Planet 2") AND we teach you how to run Windows executables through proton and Steam client (as opposed to having to break out a wine prefix and stuff). Oh... and then we teach you to mod "Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered" so you can play as Kermit the Frog! AND MOAR!
