Destroy All Humans 2! Reprobed – A Drug-Fueled Trip to the 1960s

Destroy All Humans 2! Reprobed -- A Drug-Fueled Trip to the 1960s

But, if you happen to have lived and experienced the 60s, and want to see this period of time parodied, then look no further than Destroy All Humans! 2. The original took place in 1959. The sequel takes place in 1969.

You Can Run Containerized Distros on Steam Deck Thanks to Distrobox
As Phoronix had spotted earlier today, Distrobox – a wrapper that creates and uses containers (like a distro) that are highly integrated into the host machine – got a pretty big update with 1.4.0. I won’t go over the changes, but I will say this: there’s now documentation on how to get Distrobox set up on the Steam Deck. Just look under the “SteamOS 3” section on their table. Simply run steamos-readonly disable via the terminal to disable the immutable file system, then follow their installation instructions for Arch Linux or install Podman to $HOME.

Fun Fact: Portal 2 Was Inspired (In Part) By Super Metroid
KIWI TALKZ interviews various employees (or ex-employees) from Valve and Retro Studios. He was the one who conducted the famous interview with Valve writer Eric Wolpaw, who had expressed his interest in writing Portal 3.

There was one interesting clip where he talks about how Super Metroid influenced the introduction to Portal 2: We had this problem in the game which was if you just played Portal, we didn’t want to make you learn portals all again.

Splittown Linux Port ‘Very Much a Possibility’

Splittown Linux Port 'Very Much a Possibility'
Remember that point-and-click game Splittown that I had talked about a couple of months ago? The Linux port of that game is becoming more and more of a reality. Someone had asked in the Steam forums what the status is as far as Linux support. A developer of the game responded: We’re using Visionaire Studio, which supports Linux porting, so it’s very much a possibility, but we haven’t explored that very much as of yet, since we’re still putting the game together.

Cemu 2.0-1 Sees 'Lots of Smaller Linux Improvements'
Since the news about Cemu going open-source and available for Linux went viral a few weeks ago, we’re already starting to see improvements to the Wii U emulator with version 2.0-1. To start, the update is mostly bug fix-related. Many of the issues present with 2.0 should no longer be a problem with this update. The patch notes also mention “lots of smaller Linux improvements,” although it doesn’t go into detail concerning what exactly has been improved.

How to Synchronize Save Files Between Computers for Games That Don’t Support Steam Cloud

How to Synchronize Save Files Between Computers for Games That Don't Support Steam Cloud
Many games on Steam support cloud saving. Meaning, once you exit the game, your save file will be synchronized with the Steam Cloud. You can then play the game on a different device and quickly resume where you left off. Some games, however, don’t support cloud saves. You’ll usually be able to tell by seeing if there is a cloud icon next to the green PLAY button, or by going to the Steam store page for the game.
