  • Wine-Staging 3.12 Released With 990 Patches Atop Upstream Wine

    One day past the release of upstream Wine 3.12, the downstream Wine-Staging 3.12 is now available that continues incorporating hundreds of experimental/testing patches atop these bi-weekly Wine releases.

  • The rather engrossing roguelike 'Caves of Qud' is now on GOG & itch

    For those who love your traditional roguelikes, you might want to check out Caves of Qud which is now available on GOG and itch.io.

    Along with the release on new stores, they just did a big update to the game too which includes generated villages spread throughout the game, each with its own faction, history and so on. A dynamic quest system to go along with that, giving you unique quests for each! Also, you have the option of choosing your starting location now which includes some of the new villages.

  • Albion Online 'Merlyn' update to release on July 31st with Faction Warfare

    Faction Warfare is coming to Albion Online on July 31st with the next major update named Merlyn and it does sound quite promising.

  • The GOG weekly sale has some rather nice Linux games for cheap
  • The beta of the new and improved itch app is out for testing

    Game store itch.io have a revamped desktop client coming and a beta is now available for users to test and report back.

    The open source itch app was already pretty damn slick, I'm quite a fan of how easy it is to use. However, the team at itch have been working away for quite some time to improve it.

  • Play It Now - Transistor

    Oddly enough, the game allows you to cut some of the exposition short, but I heartily recommend allowing the game to play out in full - there are some great scenes that I missed first time around in Transistor because I was in a hurry to get to the next fight!

  • NVIDIA Vulkan Beta Adds New KHR_driver_properties & KHR_shader_atomic_int64
    Not to be confused with the new NVIDIA Linux/Windows drivers that should be out today for RTX 2070/2080 "Turing" support and also initial RTX ray-tracing support, there is also out a new Vulkan beta driver this morning. The NVIDIA 396.54.06 driver is this new Vulkan beta and as implied by the version number is still on the current stable branch and not in the Turing era. But this driver release is quite exciting as it does bring support for two new extensions... These extensions are very fresh and not yet in the official Vulkan specification: VK_KHR_driver_properties and VK_KHR_shader_atomic_int64.
  • GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Linux Benchmarks Coming Today, NVIDIA Driver Bringing Vulkan RTX
    NVIDIA's review/performance embargo has now lifted on the GeForce RTX 2080 series ahead of the cards shipping tomorrow. I should have out initial Linux benchmarks later today, assuming Linux driver availability. As wrote about yesterday, just yesterday I ended up receiving the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti for Linux benchmarking. But, unfortunately, no Linux driver yet... But I am told it will be posted publicly soon with the Windows driver. Assuming that happens within the hours ahead, I'll still have initial RTX 2080 Ti benchmarks on Ubuntu Linux out by today's end -- thanks to the Phoronix Test Suite and recently wrapping up other NVIDIA/AMD GPU comparison tests on the current drivers.
  • Intel's New Iris Gallium3D Driver Picks Up Experimental Icelake Bits, GL Features
    One of the talks we are most interested in at XDC2018 is on the Intel "Iris" Gallium3D driver we discovered last month was in development. We stumbled across the Iris Gallium3D driver that's been in development for months as a potential replacement to their "i965" classic Mesa driver. But they haven't really detailed their intentions in full, but we should learn more next week. This is particularly exciting the prospects of an official Intel Gallium3D driver as the company is also expected to introduce their discrete GPUs beginning in 2020 and this new driver could be part of that plan.
