ARPG Hellpoint

02 July 2020 - 02:19 PM

Action RPG Hellpoint is available for pre-order—due to be available for macOS/Linux/Windows. Also GOG, Epic.

No lie, it looks a little boring but I'd wait for reviews.

Apple Plans to Announce Move to Its Own Chips at WWDC

Apple Plans to Announce Move to Its Own Chips at WWDC

Apple Inc. is preparing to announce a shift to its own main processors in Mac computers, replacing chips from Intel Corp., as early as this month at its annual developer conference, according to people familiar with the plans.
The company is holding WWDC the week of June 22. Unveiling the initiative, codenamed Kalamata, at the event would give outside developers time to adjust before new Macs roll out in 2021, the people said. Since the hardware transition is still months away, the timing of the announcement could change, they added, while asking not to be identified discussing private plans.
The new processors will be based on the same technology used in Apple-designed iPhone and iPad chips…

Linux Gaming

Steam Proton has opened the gaming floodgates for Linux users is a hopeful article for those gamers using Linux whom, like us Mac OS/macOS/Mac users throughout the decades whom prefer the experience of Apple's operating system for all things computing, understand the level of anxiety (albeit a word that [relatively] invokes feelings stronger than I imply) in watching a game announcement video only to learn that there are zero plans for a port to the preferred OS. Porting houses Aspyr and Feral Interactive, I believe, have done quite a job in the past and present in porting Windows wares to Linux and macOS and it's good to know that many of the titles they've ported to Linux would still be playable natively for those looking to switch to Linux. On top of that library list of games that were natively ported to Linux are now the lists of games made for Windows but work right out of the box or with little tweaking on Linux using Proton.

Another interesting article, 'Porting Games To Linux Is A Waste Of Time? This Game Developer Says You're Doing It Wrong,' has me think heavily about how developers [don't] interact with the target audience before deciding Linux/macOS porting "isn't worth it."

Radeon Pro W5700X MPX Module

…is now available as a standalone purchase via the Apple Store for the ridiculously low price of ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS! But wait! There's more! Double the memory of all the other Radeon 5700/5700XT cards, four Thunderbolt 3 ports and an HDMI 2.0 port! Take a gander at the pics! Four PCI slots wide! I really think Apple realized how unstable their OS becomes with off the shelf add-in cards—this thing's got COOLING GALORE and redefines the genre of THICC GPUs!!! WHY are you still reading this!? Get yours NOW!

Accidental crossplay between Star Wars: Jedi Academy on PC and console is a slaughter | PC Gamer

Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy first released in 2003, and its innovative and still-unique lightsaber dueling mechanics garnered a fanatical group of players that have kept up the game for nearly 17 years. Just this week developer Aspyr Media re-released Jedi Academy on PS4 and Nintendo Switch with updated controls for modern consoles, and it seems like the appeal is still strong—plus, the general multiplayer modes are fully functional. It does nearly everything the old PC game does.

It also does these things perhaps too well, including apparently accidental crossplay between PC and console, because by direct-connecting to the IP of the unlisted console multiplayer servers PC players are able to join those games…

Impossible if you're on Catalina, of course. Where's the salt emoji?
