BTW Heroic Games Launcher is a good epic alternative for Linux since Epic doesn't offer one: https://heroicgameslauncher.com/

 

It's in the AUR on arch

 

I run Epic games through Lutris. Well I run one Epizoic game through Lutris. I bought Red  Dead Redemption 2 in the sale as They gave me an extra discount for some reason so it only cost me £13. To be truthful I am finding it a bit like watching paint dry at the moment. An I seem to die a lot. 🤔

Free Stars: The Ur-Quan Masters (open source Star Control 2) now available on Steam

 

Quote

Free Stars: The Ur-Quan Masters, which is an open source version of the classic Star Control 2, has managed to get a Steam release from Pistol Shrimp Games. The developer team includes both of the original designers Paul Reiche and Fred Ford and they're currently working on The Ur-Quan Masters 2.

 

The second video on the steam page is a real hoot and like travelling back in time.

 

The game was originally made in 1992 and open sourced in 2002.

The project started in August 2002, when Toys For Bob released the partially ported sources of Star Control 2 3DO version to the fan community. Our goal is to port this wonderful game to current personal computers and operating systems. It is and will remain 100% free of charge, and anyone can contribute to the project and thus help make it even better. For more information, look at our info page.

Here you will find The Ur-Quan Masters HD MEGAMOD, a mod that takes the best of the Ur-Quan Master's mods and rolls them up into one big "Mega" mod. Building upon the latest Ur-Quan Masters source code I've made an expansive mod which includes HD-mod, HD-Remix, Nic's Extended mod, and my personal mods which range from quality of life changes and extra modes to making the HD portions of the game look more faithful to the original design. Though not everything is going to be perfect and a few things will still stand out. I believe classic Star Control II fans will favor this version over the previous incarnation of the HD-mod.

 

The above is the version available on Arch

 

uqm-megamod 0.8.2-3

 

Lots of extra packages for Arch

Dungeons & Dragons 50th Anniversary – my memories of the grandaddy of gaming

 

Quote

As the fountainhead of interactive entertainment celebrates its golden jubilee GameCentral reminisces on five decades of old school role-playing.

March 2024 will see Dungeons & Dragons turn 50,

 

Quote

Last year saw what many would call the most faithful video game adaption of D&D so far, with Baldur’s Gate 3. Video games have been trying to recreate D&D, both officially and unofficially, for decades, with some of the very earliest video games being directly influenced by it. In fact, it’s almost impossible to imagine modern video games without the influence of tabletop games.

 

Dungeons & Dragons Turns 50! See How We're Celebrating Our Gold Anniversary

Festivities kick off in March with a free tournament-style adventure you can play at your local game store, conventions, or at home with your friends. We're also giving you a sneak peek at upcoming books and brand partnerships. To help you sport your love of D&D, you can download a special 50th anniversary wallpaper for your desktop or mobile device that highlights the kind of stunning art you'll find in the 2024 core rulebooks.
