Wow Stanislaw Lem, my favorite SF writer. Kind of a mix of Samuel Clemmons and Phillip K Dick. Humor and staring into the abyss.

Haha I thought he's a bit more like a sarcastic version of the Strugatzki brothers.

I liked Far Cry until the mutants showed up. I quite FC2 after an hour because I couldn't stand the interface and the driving. Until now that was the last FC game I have played. I recently finished FC5 and I loved it, except the ending and the forced story missions (that was atrocious). I liked the setting, Montana looks beautiful and I liked the plot. The voice acting was superb. Currently I am also enjoying New Dawn.

I played NMS last year and while I enjoyed it to some extent it is really a subpar space game.

Walking around on the planet is done well but the actual flying is not good. So many features that I expect in a space game are missing. (Un)fortunately I already forgot most of what I was annoyed about.

One thing I'll never forget, though. It's how space looks. You are always flying through colourful mists. It doesn't feel like you are flying in space at all. There are so many asteroid or debris fields it's like you wonder whether you are in vacuum at all and the planets are all so close together it's a wonder they don't crash into each other.

Ultimately I'd rather play X4.

Gah I hope they hurry up with a new Linux version. Cannot play Horizon New Dawn right now because there is an error in the 470 drivers which, when used with Proton and DXVK, makes the RAM consumption of DX12 games explode.

Thanks!! You rock.
Now it's study time while i wait for the laptop.

Which one?
It's really nothing special. I'd been waiting for the stars to align with the components i wanted at a price I was willing to pay.
Dell G15 Ryzen™ Edition Gaming Laptop (Frugal mans alienware)
Ryzen 7 5800H
Nvidia RTX 3060 6gb 125w
15.6-inch 1080p 165Hz 300 nit
16GB DDR4 2x8 Dual Channel
512GB NVMe (spare slot)

Oh cool, what did you pay for it? I'm currently looking for one myself, have my eyes on the Lenovo ThinkPad T15g. It has all of the goodness of a ThinkPad (like an awesome keyboard and a sturdy case) and a RTX 2070 (3070 for the Gen. 2 model, which should come out in a few months). Unfortunately hardware is really expensive here in Europe. This one would cost about 2400 Euro (about 2800 bucks, I think), whereas in the US you can have them for under 2000 (of course that's pre-tax but I have no idea how that works out in the end).

Seeing this link I wish Windows 11 would have just been a heavily optimized Linux distro with the MS store, their UI, and a sensible package and driver packaging tool.

They're already using DNF for package management which is about as solid as it gets. The only "driver" Linux needs is from Nvidia because Nvidia are a bunch of tools and won't create open source drivers like AMD and Intel that can be freely distributed. Oh, yeah, Broadcom, too, but mostly for their older stuff. Intel seems to have pretty much become the defacto standard in the WLAN space. Even so, they could use Manjaro's driver management tool because it is slick and they openly offer it to anyone who wants to use it.

Honestly, I don't want their UI as it stands currently. It's a total clusterfuck with things in two to three different places. I'd rather they either rewrote it from the ground up to be coherent or just adopt Pantheon or Gnome. KDE is too finicky for the average user.

I think, really, the only thing holding Microsoft back is legacy cruft. However, they could probably get around that by using Proton.

The only thing Microsoft has for it on the server side is Active Directory, but that's just their version of LDAP and it could be easily ported.

There is a German blogger who works as a network consultant who is railing non-stop against Active Directory because it's supposed to be
one giant security hole.

I love Elex, will play 2 and surely love it.
But why did they have to make the hero so butt ugly, and repeat it now.
They erred there, makes it harder to sympathize.

I fondly remember the Gothic 1 guy, *and* his uniquely warm voice. You really wanted to help him.
Can you remember other games with heroes so pleasant ?. I can't.



Yeah, I fully agree and the only reason I can think of is that Elex's hero used to be a bad guy.

Brigador is really freakin' good. It's a shame that they had so little success with it but apparently it got better. I remember they said they wanted to write their own engine because none of the available engines could do what they wanted and this took a long time and lead to a large financial hit.

On the other hand they are working on a sequel so that's good.

It's a mac, he switched to Safari and says he gained 2 hours of battery life but lost productivity, so that's a real trade off.

One cool addon I use on Firefox is Tab Suspender, it will free up an idle tabs memory and processor usage after X mins. Keeps it running quite well and if you have a lot of tabs open, it just gets more valuable.

Oh cool I didn't know such addons existed. Exactly what I was looking for!

But don't you enjoy the convenience? Sure, you can get Proton from github, compile your own version. But it integrates so smoothly into Steam. This was basically the reason why I finally decided to ditch the last Windows systems in my home. Still had Windows on my desktop to play video games, don't need it anymore.

I don't know. I just don't have the time to to tinker with my system anymore. EGS doesn't even have a Linux client so they can sod off, for all that it matters to me.

Meh. I prefer flexibility over convenience. I like not being forced in to dealing with a single vendor for a proprietary tool. However, I know that different people have different desires when it comes to their Linux systems and it's awesome that the choice is there.

I do enjoy tinkering because it helps me to both learn and understand. For example, on my devbox, I started with Linux From Scratch, moved on to Beyond Linux From Scratch, and then advanced to where I am now which is Automated Linux From Scratch so I can have a consistently uniform build and deployment of my own distro. On the box I am typing to you now from, I am running Fedora Silverblue so I can learn the ins and out of immutable OSes which I believe to be the future. For me, tinkering makes sure that I am never stagnant nor wholly reliant on someone else's whims. That was one of the major reasons I ditched Windows and moved to Linux. The actual, real freedom to control my machine, what's on it, and how it operates. You do not get that with Windows at all.


From what you wrote I understand beautifully why Proton's integration into Steam is not as important to you.
I wish I could do all these things, too, but sadly I do not have the time.

I'm a low-key burrito so I don't buy fifty games at once. The lack of a shopping cart is laughably pedantic. Steam has no more features for my usage than Epic does. I buy games, install them, and then play them. Both serve that function flawlessly.
You post about Linux all the time. Steam doesn't have any advantage there?

It has Proton built in, which is nice, but I can use Proton standalone without Steam from here. So outside of a store front, Steam doesn't have any proprietary advantages for me over any other storefront.

With 1600 Steam games, adding many carefully selected ones each month :

The Steam user **reviews** are a total game changer.

Don't peruse them -yes some are fabricated- and you'll never know, but I've found time and again, heads ups for problems or solutions to them, and tips/strategies I wouldn't have known about otherwise. Details you won't find in any review site.

This affect critically my buying or enjoyment later.
And the Community Hub has provided unique maps, hints, et al, vital to ending some games, etc.

For those in other countries, Steam is the only store that considers their economic situation, and provides selective lower normal prices. Cheaper yet with specials offers.

So that even with the swell $10,00 Epic coupon rebate, Steam has better/killer prices all year.

Waiting eagerly for the Steam openworld games sale, May 27 to 31, and the summer sale possibly June 24 to July 8 !



I agree. I read the Steam reviews quite often. Sometimes there are good reviews, sometimes there is interesting information and sometimes there are fixes for some issues.
