    i found that my version of wine played Hyper Princess Pitch (http://www.remar.se/daniel/pitch.php), which i had downloaded a while ago but hadn't ever been able to play. lost track of time with that, fun replay mechanic (learn some new moves, try to go for the "good" ending)

    Since Proton became a thing on Linux Steam I've been playing the original Borderlands, which is fairly refreshing after having a long stint of Borderlands 2 and I forgot a bit of the original game. Kind of wish it had a native client like Borderlands 2 and the Pre-Sequel, I rather support native games...

    Yeah, this is why I'm kind of opposed to Proton. With Wine it was just a stop-gap, Linux users used it because it was all that was available. Proton is written by and promoted by a major industry leader: how many companies are now going to go "we don't need a linux port, we'll just let Proton handle that for us"?
    On the other hand, if the play is identical whether Proton or native does it actually make a difference other than a sense of virtue?

    On one hand I think it's stunting development of native ports, on the other Valve is keeping a metric of who is using Linux/Proton so it still may be beneficial in a way to show there is still a healthy Linux user base.

    Is there a way to see what games are proton supported? I'm just running windows because i know the games are available, but would be interested to know which of my games are supported

    Well some third party site has started a database, ( https://www.protondb.com/ ). Honestly I just enable it for everything and try it, so far I've not seen too much that didn't run well. I believe the official list is smaller than what actually does run well as everything needs play testing to be officially supported.

    Last game I bought was World of Final Fantasy Maxima for Switch. For a monster battler spinoff game, I like how the story feels like a full modern Final Fantasy story. Amnesiac mains, epic scope, witty dialogue, no sense making... Feels right at home in the series.

    Wanna get a computer soon so I can get back to playing old games though.

    I'm sorely tempted to get Sekiro, but just know I'd be unable to play it. Loved Demon Souls when it first came out, and the Japanese setting and ninja style of Shadows Die Twice is more appealing to me. I'm just terrible at Souls style.

    Actually I did play Dark Souls II a bit yesterday, but the combat just felt bad, and just got killed by the little pygmy boars at the start and kept falling off things.

    Sekiro seems to be a fair bit different:

    Aw, I've been enjoying DS2 so much. The boars are a trolling attempt. Just ignore them. When you find a weapon that has a nice downwards swing, like a club or a halberd, they are easy prey. Not like there's much reason to kill them apart from farming some multiplayer item.
    Falling off things, well yeah, that happens. I came back to the tutorial area after over 60 hours to trade in some stuff and fell right off a ledge - I wasn't careful enough.

    Give the game a fair chance. I cursed a lot throughout, but ultimately enjoyed it. I'm a sucker for discovering worlds and this game is among the best, especially with the DLCs.

    Everything looks so tiny, I think this would be a game I'd play in a window and play a movie in another window or something. I'll do that with every game, next monitor I buy will be a 4k TV, I'm done with dual monitors.

    The great thing about this mod is, that you can't only choose any resolution you want, you can also zoom in or out at any moment with the mouse wheel.

    Oh, that's cool, I thought you were just stuck at one resolution like the original, I didn't realize there was a mod.
