    Well I was itching for something new (I play faaar to much HoN & CS:GO ). I was hoping for ruiner but they are playing some BS marketing thing with linux.

    SPAZ2 came out and SPAZ2-linux had a day1 beta. After reading the typical naysayer replies from windows users I went and bought it.
    For starters ... for something that is marked as BETA, its seamless.

    As to the gameplay, I played alot of SPAZ1 and so I was looking forward to this anyway. Alot of the gameplay is different yet the feel is the same. It is more of a 4x type game, more of constructing your ship. At certain points in the game aspects of the background story kick in and if you trigger them too soon well :)

    Right now I am barely holding the zombies off while re-capturing some of their zones. I need to sort out my ship build as it is crap BUT functional

    Rocket League is epic. I'm complete crap at it ATM, but how good is the soundtrack!

    Is it possible for us Linux users to get some form of Rocket League 'League or group' going?

    Yep I did. I have played about 40 minutes of it so far. No crashes or glitches and so far a damn good game. Will gladly pick it up if the full Linux version is released.

    A game called First Tree had it's Linux version released today on Itch.io and Steam. I got to play the beta a week or two back and it was really well done. If you enjoy games like Firewatch or Shelter you may like it.

    If it's on Steam I guess you 'redeem a key'.
