Old School Rally plans full support for Steam Deck - got me feeling nostalgic

This would be great native game. Sadly, it looks to be Windows-only, so again just Proton.

EmuDeck removes Yuzu And Citra emulator support

While I can understand their fight against Yuzu, taking down Citra (3DS emulator) does not make much sense and sets a dangerous precedent against other retro emulators.

Quoting: EhvisAs longs as devs/publishers believe that rootkit anti-cheat is a valid solution, this will always be a problem

This. This goes way back to the old "Starforce days" (that are fortunately gone now, but were replaced by not much better anti-cheat rootkits). I was a Windows user for some time (with Gentoo in dual boot) back then and Starforce was something that I would never allow to be installed on my computer. Sure, I had to sacrifice many good games, but at least my system was not compromised.

Quoting: finaldestWe need an option for games to be officially supported on Linux desktop.

I make a proposal for Valve to have a "Desktop" verified tag next to "Steam Deck" verified. This would then allow devs and publishers to officially support a game via Proton on Desktop PC's the same as they do for the steam deck.

This. Native builds are not necessary (even though they are better than Wine - in my opinion - if done properly), but what we definitely need (and what we had when native builds were a thing) is official Linux / Steam Deck support from game devs. Not just relying on Valve and Wine/Proton "to magically make their games work".

Linux native or just Proton?

SMITE 2 announced with Steam Deck support from Titan Forge and Hi-Rez Studios

So it is a "next-gen native title", but most likely not a "Linux native title". That's sad.

Nice, but would be much better with an AMD graphics.

Star Trek: Infinite from Paradox releases October 12

The lack of a native Linux port is a huge disappointment to me (especially considering that other games from Paradox Interactive got native ports) and the reason why I won't buy this game even though I am a huge Star Trek fan.

What about the original version? Is it still available?

By the way, I still dream of Enemy Territory: Quake Wars being re-released on Steam.
