    I've been gradually transitioning from Lutris+WineSteam to Proton. Some titles simply work better out of the box with Proton. I've been pleasantly surprised with ProtonDB having helpful reports, including necessary workarounds, for less popular titles as well.

    Game-specific bugs are often addressed quickly when reported at https://github.com/ValveSoftware/Proton/issues. Of course larger features cannot be implemented immediately, yet are still triaged quickly.

    Thanks for starting this endeavor to add more ProtonDB reports. I don't have much to contribute though, since I mostly play older games thanks to sales and backlog, and those games generally have enough reports already.

    Code Geass is on Netflix so watching that. I forget why I dropped it so many years ago. Probably saw some obnoxious spoilers online. If so, luckily I've forgotten by now. It's a great show, on episode 7ish.

    Kakegurui season 2 is also out, I hear, so I'll be starting that next probably. Looking forward to some gambling hijinks. Will be funny to watch right after Asobi Asobase, which is also about playing various games, but completely different kind of show.

    Godot Engine has been doing a good job of filling this niche of game engine editors usable on Linux. Good to have Unity on board now as well.

    AFAIK it has been working experimentally on Linux for a while now. This makes it official.

    Baki part 2 made its way to Netflix in the West recently, so started on that. The insane violence continues to be entertaining, and pacing remains good.

    Maybe a preemptive strike against the upcoming game streaming services like Google Stadia, and signs of Amazon and Apple circling the waters. Sure they'll cannibalize their PS4 sales a bit, but staying in control of the conversation helps prevent bigger losses to other platforms that will launch sooner.

    From the wiki article you linked: "Pre-announcement is done for several reasons: to reassure current customers that there is improvement or lower cost coming, to increase the interest of the media and investors in the company's future prospects, and to intimidate or confuse competitors." All these reasons ring true for Sony right now.

    I like the Sakura Wars franchise for the music and fun character interactions. Only Sakura Wars 5 has come to the west, and it didn't sell very well, so I'm very pleasantly surprised that the new entry will be coming to the west in 2020.

    Bleach is cool and all, but I'm bummed that Kosuke Fujishima is being replaced as character designer. Oh well, I'd rather a new character designer than the franchise to end.

    Thankfully Kohei Tanaka is still the music composer because his music pretty much makes the entire series.

    Bloodlines definitely. It's a classic often compared with Deus Ex but with vampires. Great atmosphere and direction and player agency. There are definitely some annoying/janky parts but the unofficial patch fixes a lot of stuff.

    Redemption not really worth playing IMO.

    The must-have unofficial patch for Bloodlines: https://www.moddb.com/mods/vtmb-unofficial-patch (Wow! Updated as recently as a month ago!)

    Up until the announcement an hour ago, Paradox Interactive were doing a fake "Tender" app teaser/promo thing. There was some kind of countdown involved which ended with this announcement, entertaining to watch: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/399100804?t=03h52m54s

    Happened to me a few times. Most embarrassing was at a sleepover long time ago, friend's dad walked into room to say hi to everyone but I couldn't move or speak even though my eyes were open. Was awkward.

    In retrospect every time it's happened to me, I was dehydrated, but didn't know at the time.

    Reading Battle Angel Alita. Having a blast. Good action, good sci-fi, good sense of humor, likable characters.

    I loved the first 2 Trines, they are great for couch co-op, skipped the third due to bad reviews and weird 3D perspective. The Trine 4 trailer looks like they're going back to their gameplay roots, has me cautiously optimistic.
