Best Linux Games Podcast: Episodes

Friday, April 13, 2018 - 4:12pm

This week: we unveil our new format for features, experimenting on the latest "Ruiner" (now available for Linux through Steam via Beta Branch), as well as the supreme 4-player spiritual-sequel to the (legendary) "ROGUE LEGACY" in the form of the excellent "Full Metal Furies." All this, plus Feral Interactive's confirmation (via tweet-a-tete) that "Rise of the Tomb Raider" is coming to Linux, and soon.

This week, we explore several "Unorthodox" titles: How To Play the spiritual sequel to "FTL: Faster Than Light," "Into the Breach" via PlayOnLinux/wine. As if that were not enough, we also talk about why we are not a fan of "Ion Maiden," along with some excellent alternatives (including "Apocryph," and how to play the early beta, along with "Painkiller: Hell and Damnation."). Finally, we bring the inter-galactic totalitarianism that we all need, with the announcement of our "Space Tyrant" single-campaign live-stream binge.

This week!: we bring you news of a glorious and unparalleled triumph, revealing a secret, months-long obsession in the telling: yes, we bring you the detailed war story (and all the technical, step-by-step how-to instructions so you can do it yourself) of our 4 month long campaign to get "Ruiner" installed and running under wine/playonlinux, etc. ALSO: We mourn the loss of a beloved favorite audio clip, talk about the history of Wine itself, and discuss the implications for this triumph in the context of future flatpak-based ambitions.
THE COLUMN: Returns this week, the detailed and verified-to-work HOW-TO for Wine and PlayOnLinux that you've always wished for:

This week, we recover from our illness with a fresh installment of "WHAT I'M PLAYING:" "Remnants of Naezith" (which left me "grappling" with mixed feelings), "Descenders," (an early access title that could - one day - become the all-time champeen of downhill BMX biking), and a less-coughing description of the beguiling evil that is "Tangledeep."
