Hypersomnia is a free and open source top-down competitive 2D shooter

Has a steep learning curve and an overly long tutorial, but was quite fun to play on the last onFOSS multiplayer event.

Anyone spotted the GPL source-code for this already? Would be nice to see what modifications their did to GZdoom.

NVIDIA switching to open kernel modules by default in future driver update for Turing+

Hate to break it to people, but gaming is irrelevant to Nvidia decision making these days. This is all about GPUs in datacenters for AI and so on. Supporting the open kernel module just makes it more hassle-free for these large scale customers that pretty much all run some custom Linux version.

Always nice to see games explicitly going for a non-generic setting. It's kind of sad that even games developed outside the US often end up going for what seems like a generic but heavily US influenced setting.

Dr. Robotnik's Ring Racers v2.1 out with Linux support now available

"gaster" seems to be the password to skip the tutorial and "Wi-Fi Warrior" to unlock multiplayer.

But that is seriously bad game design to have a long unskippable tutorial and make multiplayer an unlockable as well.

Dome Keeper is getting a major content update and multiplayer is coming

Good game, but indeed for a rogue-like it runs out of content relatively quickly. Maybe this update will improve that.

Embracer Group splitting into three companies

Quoting: CatKillerEmbracer was particularly relying on a $2 billion deal that fell through. They've been restructuring to try to cover that.

If I remember correctly then the rumour-mill said that this was a planned investment by the Saudi government, so that was probably a good thing that it fell through.

Orange Pi Neo Linux gaming handheld starts at $499 with Ryzen 7840U, Ryzen 8840U at $599

I don't get what the point of the Ryzen 8840U version is. Seems to be the same specs as the 7840U just with a faster NPU, which is AFAIK completely useless in a handheld like this.

CoreCtrl adds AMD RX 7000 series fan curve controls, Intel CPU temperature sensors

That should help to figure out why my system sometimes turns off on high load ever since I added a 7600 GPU. Although I suspect it is a shitty PSU that is causing that and not actual over-heating.

Valve fixes up Steam Remote Play - again

Wayland and Steam in general seems to be a mess right now. SteamVR used to work on KDE with wayland, but ever since the SteamVR 2.x update I can't get it to work anymore :(
