    :( I wish more AAA games would be available for linux
    Vadim Peretokin
    @vadi2
    Yeah for sure, more the better
    I'm back to Total War Warhammer though so that's another AAA title!

    That and my tax program are the only reasons to have windows at all
    I'm still gnawing away at Assassins Creed: Syndicate when I have time and need a graphics game

    @vadi2
    Ohh I wanted to play the AC version that has ship battles
    keneanung
    @keneanung
    Black Flag and 3 have ships.
    I actually liked all of them
    Sometimes I also play stronghold crusader (works through wine, yay!) or Shadow Warriors: Blades of the Shogun, which runs natively on Linux, yay!
    erm... Shadow tactics

    I have 100+ linux games in my library...
    Though I poured most of the time into Dota 2 for the last few years. That's native too!
    I used to run Crossover before but with so many native games I don't have it anymore
    I was thinking I'd get Windows again just to play with VR. I've got the money to buy a Vive. Time - not so much

    @keneanung
    I only have 15 linux games :(

    @vadi2
    I just bought Shadow of Mordor yesterday too. Heard it's a great game, and it's native. Pretty much only ever bought native since humble bundles came out

    That's just my downloaded ones atm!

    But I don't have the time to play much lately, anyways

    Slack insisting on single ` instead of two `` like everyone else just annoys me
    That's my contribution for the day

    Did you know IRE is coming out with a new MUD
    It'll be interesting to see how Mudlet does there. IRE has very capable Javascript-powered clients now and Starmourn will be a brand new MUD
    Ahmed Charles
    @ahmedcharles
    Interesting.
    They probably have an advantage.
    Vadim Peretokin
    @vadi2
    I think I'll help out Mudlet users there by porting their UI to Mudlet again just like I did with Nexus
    That'll help get Mudlet get started there
    Ahmed Charles
    @ahmedcharles
    They can just write a client that reads out-of-band data and produce a custom graphical client.
    Vadim Peretokin
    @vadi2
    They do, thankfully it's all GMCP based
    Just have to decode the undocumented features they add to it
    Ahmed Charles
    @ahmedcharles
    yeah
    Vadim Peretokin
    @vadi2
    I've been thinking a lot about the project and I think there's a lot we can do from the external-facing stuff as well to make Mudlet nicer
    One thing I'd like to do is to have in-client tutorials on how to do stuff: https://github.com/Mudlet/newbie-tuts
    All of these things that games make it easier for a new player to get started - we could do it to get the player started in the world of MUDs
    There's still so many ideas I want to add to Mudlet! New website, those tutorials, a bunch of API functionality. It's fun

    @ahmedcharles
    I'm not sure what I think about starmourn specifically. Their last scifi mud failed to launch and Midkemia closed. I'm not sure if there's a market for a scifi mud or well, any mud that requires funding anyways.
    There will always be free muds
    Vadim Peretokin
    @vadi2
    Well it's their CEOs baby, I think the CEO was away for Midkemia
    Ahmed Charles
    @ahmedcharles
    But it's not really a brilliant market for text muds right now or probably ever again. :P
    Matt tried to do Earth Eternal and failed.
    Vadim Peretokin
    @vadi2
    That was yeah.
    Ahmed Charles
    @ahmedcharles
    I think he has a better chance with starmourn.
    As long as he doesn't write the room descriptions at 2 am while sleep deprived, like he did with Azdun :P
    Vadim Peretokin
    @vadi2
    Haha really

    I started playing Achaea 16 years ago. I can be nostalgic about that time I was nostalgic about being nostalgic :P
    I'm also realizing that I've played the game using windows telnet.exe, zmud, cmud (both of which I actually bought), mudlet, muccl, tintin++, linux telnet and 3 different mobile clients across windows mobile, windows phone and iOS.
    Oh, I forgot, I've used nexus too.
    Mudlet with svo is probably my favorite, because of the fact that I could easily extend svo with various actions.

    Nice. I've started out with the old Java client, then first Java Nexus, then the 2nd Java Nexus (current Javascript client is also Nexus)
