  1. Yep I really have to resist temptation for giving any spoilers with this game, feels like I have an Angel and a Devil on each shoulder whispering at me
  2. Edit: Double post due to some strange lag in hitting the save post
  3. I can't recall much about the original BG1 + 2, but have seen dedicated fans describing BG3 as feeling more like a Neverwinter Nights sequel than BG3. Story wise I don't think its spawn of Bhaal, but who knows we beta testers need to be fed more than Act 1 ... mooooar! Visually it's Larian's D:OS style, feels like NWN, but more advanced with the D&D 5e ruleset. Edit: Oh and height is much more of a thing, pushing NPCs off ledges occasionally, puzzles with how to move some things .. Personally I am just accepting it for what it is, developed by a different company than the original, if you have no BG series hopes / expectations its a very good game, but probably a bit dissapointing for series fans. Well, until they play it for a while I reckon opinions will change in the long run and this will become another nostalgic favourite. But still a few years development yet I reckon. No idea when its going to come out of Early Access, so I am mostly playing other games for now so as to leave enough new experience for when it does go live.

  11. Version: 4.10 Beta 2 (448717) - 2021-06-24 https://forum.egosoft.com/viewtopic.php?f=192&t=405397&sid=e70d7bfbc7aec04fc5d8505dc9700f30
  12. X3 Terran War Pack is cheap as chips (fries) on GOG right now https://www.gog.com/game/x3_terran_war_pack And they just recently added the DevNet Community developed project Farnhams Legacy (they have been adding / refining this over the last five years). Second bugfix patch was included either today or yesterday, which concludes the development of this free update to the game. The normal Terran Conflict and Albion Prelude are as bug free / polished as they are ever going to get by now.
  13. Haven't played it recently, but more fixes have been done : https://www.cyberpunk.net/en/news/38612/patch-1-23 v1.23 public
  14. v3.53 public (seemed to be no Experimental beta for this one as its just more fixes) https://www.nomanssky.com/2021/06/prisms-patch-3-53/
  15. I'm going to wait and see how development goes for Linux support for the couple of games I use long term, but apparently Pop!_OS is pretty good https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pop!_OS https://pop.system76.com/ Libreoffice, Chrome, VLC, GIMP, and either AMD or NVidia support out of the box + Vulkan. And more importantly an LTS (Long Term Stable) version. X4 Foundations is (as of a few years ago) Linux compatible. A few users on Egosoft forums reckon it performs better than on Windows 10 No Man's Sky, they never mention Linux is supported but in the past there have been fixes for Linux compatability from Hellogames, probably run via Proton .. Anything else I want, well you can install Steam and Valves development of Proton with Vulkan (Wine fork). I will probably get a Steam account just to add to the Linux sales and help promote the development. I might just give it a go, backup my Documents / Emails etc, I have a USB Recovery stick for Win 10 if anything goes wrong, and completely wipe the SSD with a Pop!_OS installation. When dual booting Windows + Linux in the past I always found Linux OS's had a better file system which was quicker than Windows, and obviously less intrusive with background services, unlike windows anything not necessary by default is not running. I am veeery curious to see how much better that will be on my 970 Evo Plus SSD. And Malware .. Its a lot less of a concern for Linux, Win 10s Defender has been superb in recent years, but that will be another one less thing needing to run in the background. Edit: Hmm just a thought, better if I let the warranty run out first on this laptop
