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

EThis 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.

BLGP EP 254: Chucklefish Fiasco, Namco/Bandai Sale

EAgain, the madness of the news from this week has subsequently forced me to forgo our planned feature of "No Man's Sky: The Good, The Bad, The Tired, and The New," so we can instead focus on a completely infuriating issue for which there are no easy answers: the recent complaints against "Starbound" creator/man-behind Chucklefish running an exploitative sweatshop mill in which teenagers went unpaid for years. We then wash the taste of our collective mouths with 3 kickass deals from the Bandai/Namco Weekend Sale!

EIn the wake of the unholy shitstorm of outrage, recriminations, and acrimony that's erupted around "Ion Fury" devs' refusal to remove minor game content some players have claimed to be offensive and homophobic, we weigh in with our (unexpurgated) opinion in this massive episode (bumping our planned feature on "No Man's Sky").

BLGP EP 251: "No Man's Sky: Beyond" Has a Rocky Release

EIn honor of Hello Games' HUMONGOUS update to "No Man's Sky" this week with their "Beyond" content (introducing VR, better multiplayer, new tech trees, and 2 years worth of other stuff), we take a moment to marvel at the irony that, once again, they've managed to COMPLETELY fuck up another crucial, MAJOR release of this otherwise fantastic game. We give you the low down (and counsel patience).

EOn YET ANOTHER Friday the 13th, we talk some serious details about "No Man's Sky" post update, covering all the new tech, play mechanics, and some aspects of the game that seem tired (both with a gamepad as well as in Virtual Reality). All this, plus Greedfall, along with 3 great deals. -------- Vids of this week: --Pavlov Vr (HEADPOPPERS!): https://www.twitch.tv/videos/472955486 -------- -BE SURE TO CHECK OUT our twitch livestream at: www.twitch.tv/skookiesprite -JOIN OUR DISCORD EXPERIMENT at: discord.gg/SVXy3Xa -Boldilocker's Livestream: https://dlive.tv/boldilocks --POST YOUR GAME REPORTS TO PROTONDB.COM!!!! --------------------------------------------------------------- ---Games Mentioned This Week (Proton):--- --Greedfall ($49.99) https://store.steampowered.com/app/606880/GreedFall/ --No Man's Sky ($59.99) https://store.steampowered.com/app/275850/No_Mans_Sky/ --Vampyr (-66%, $16.99 through Sept 16th) https://store.steampowered.com/app/427290/Vampyr/ --The Surge (-75%, $7.49 through Sept. 16th) https://store.steampowered.com/app/378540/The_Surge/ --Insurgency: Sandstorm (-33%, $7.49 through Sept. 16th) https://store.steampowered.com/app/378540/The_Surge/

BLGP EP 254: Chucklefish Fiasco, Namco/Bandai Sale

EAgain, the madness of the news from this week has subsequently forced me to forgo our planned feature of "No Man's Sky: The Good, The Bad, The Tired, and The New," so we can instead focus on a completely infuriating issue for which there are no easy answers: the recent complaints against "Starbound" creator/man-behind Chucklefish running an exploitative sweatshop mill in which teenagers went unpaid for years. We then wash the taste of our collective mouths with 3 kickass deals from the Bandai/Namco Weekend Sale!

BLGP EP 253: Ion FUROR, WoW Classic on Linux, & Devolver Deals

EIn the wake of the unholy shitstorm of outrage, recriminations, and acrimony that's erupted around "Ion Fury" devs' refusal to remove minor game content some players have claimed to be offensive and homophobic, we weigh in with our (unexpurgated) opinion in this massive episode (bumping our planned feature on "No Man's Sky"). Plus: WoW Classic comes to Linux, Ivor finally gets killed off, and we deliver our (whimsical) picks and fave deals from Devolver Digital's Publisher Weekend Sale (running now through September 2nd). All this and MUCH MOAR!

EThis week, we talk some Valve Index and VR news, then disclose our frustrations with Twitch's ever-diminishing list of available tags for livestreams (amongst other recent debacles with the streaming service), and then give our full review of (the very enjoyable) "Wolfenstein: Youngblood."

BLGP EP 251: "No Man's Sky: Beyond" Has a Rocky Release

EIn honor of Hello Games' HUMONGOUS update to "No Man's Sky" this week with their "Beyond" content (introducing VR, better multiplayer, new tech trees, and 2 years worth of other stuff), we take a moment to marvel at the irony that, once again, they've managed to COMPLETELY fuck up another crucial, MAJOR release of this otherwise fantastic game. We give you the low down (and counsel patience). Also: Ion Maiden is now "Ion Fury," and is out of Early Access! -------- Vids of this week: --Pavlov Vr (Highleet Reel Number 2): https://www.twitch.tv/videos/467920510 -------- -BE SURE TO CHECK OUT our twitch livestream at: www.twitch.tv/skookiesprite -JOIN OUR DISCORD EXPERIMENT at: discord.gg/SVXy3Xa -Boldilocker's Livestream: https://dlive.tv/boldilocks --------------------------------------------------------------- ---Games Mentioned This Week (Proton):--- --No Man's Sky (-50% $29.99 through August 21) https://store.steampowered.com/app/275850/No_Mans_Sky/ --Ion Fury ($24.99) https://store.steampowered.com/app/562860/Ion_Fury/
