  • My Last Dota 2 Game

    I started playing Dota 2 in 2014 because: It was a fun game Can run natively on Linux I picked it up again when the lock down started in 2020, and played quite a lot in the following months. Until I thought I have had enough Dota, because: The game was getting more complicated and […]

  • Running Minecraft Server in Kubernetes Cluster

    A month ago I had an idea to run a Minecraft server in my garage Kubernetes lab. I though it might interest my little Minecraft player at home with some Kubernetes and GitOps stuff but that failed miserably. But at least I knew how to host a Minecraft server in Kubernetes, with ArgoCD too. First […]

  • Fedora 31, Optimus, Bumblebee and Steam

    My laptop(XPS 15) has Nvidia 1050 Ti but I never used it to play games, because I replaced Windows 10 with Fedora Linux on the first day, not even a dual boot. I’ve tried Bumblebee to run Linux native games on Nvidia a few years ago but it wasn’t stable enough. After I upgraded the […]

  • Install Nvidia 396 Driver for Ubuntu 18.04

    Just some quick notes to upgrade Nvidia driver from 390 to 396 on Ubuntu 18.04. By default Ubuntu 18.04 only has Nvidia driver 390. # add ubuntu official ppa for nvidia# all commands below run as rootadd-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppaapt update# install 396 filesapt install nvidia-dkms-396 nvidia-driver-396 nvidia-compute-utils-396 libnvidia-compute-396# reboot at the end.

  • PS4 SSD Upgrade Made Easy With Linux

    Even the latest PS4 Pro model comes with an HDD. I can’t remember when was last laptop shipped with HDD but I can imagine what an SSD upgrade brings to an old PS4. The only issue is, if I put the new SSD drive in straight away I’ll need to install the PS4 OS and […]

  • 又一个神作 The Last of Us

    最近忙里偷闲, 一个月每次有空儿就玩上半小时一小时的, 终于把 The Last of Us 通关了.  不愧是屡获殊荣的神作, 以至于现在我觉得别的游戏不那么有意思了. 稍微总结一下, TLOU 的成功之处首先是有一个很赞的剧本. 角色扮演游戏和电影差不多都是在讲一个故事, 所以特效或者女主的颜值都是次要属性. 其次男主 Joel 并无神力, 遇到几个对手要是不打算智取的话那基本就性命堪忧了(或者你玩的是 easy). 所以以往看到僵尸就路见不平一声吼的习惯在这是格格不入的, 再说也没有经验值一说, 所以绕开一群僵尸在某些时候可能会带来更好的结果. 乱世的气氛营造的也非常好, 一方面城市的荒废让大自然”趁虚而入”, 另一方面社会已经崩溃, 人与人之间不再友善和信任. 各种消费品更是极端缺乏, 翻了半天只找到几发子弹对不对, 那如果不是”head shot”恐怕自己都觉得败家了. 敌对势力的 AI 做的也不错, 土匪甲会让土匪乙去抄你的侧翼. 最后就是 Joel 与 Ellie 之间从路人到类父女的关系进展, 也刻画的很赞. 🙂

  • 游戏机与童年

    前些天, 经老婆批准, 我终于如愿以偿买了 PS4. 巧合的是当年笑笑出生后没多久我买了 PS3… 其实心里也明白大概是没有多少时间去玩的, 但心愿就是如此, 哪怕买回来不开包也行. 我选择 PS4 而不是 XB1 的原因主要如下: XBOX 360 的界面还可以, 但现在 XB1 看起来就和 Windows 一样了, 实在是跟我的审美过不去 XB1 块头更大更重, 变压器还外置, 性能却不如 PS4, 可见微软硬件功力不足; 另外也是害怕”三红”再次闹事吧, 看样子设计的蛮保守的 PS4 换硬盘更容易? 其实我也不知道 XB1 换硬盘的情况, 不过 XB360 把我恶心坏了, 普通硬盘放进去确不认, 必须多花些银子买 XB360 专用硬盘 PS4 游戏手柄我拿着更舒服 XB1 更注重客厅各种应用的集成, 例如 智能电视, skype, bing 等等, 但我只是要个游戏机? 目前XB1的体感游戏依旧占优, 这是选择 […]

  • CS:GO, Borderlands 2, Linux

    在首发两年之后, Counter Strike: Global Offensive 以及 Borderlands 2 这两款射击游戏终于发布了其 Linux 版本. 估计又会有一小撮”没 Windows 怎么玩游戏”分子义无返顾的抛弃双系统, 只用 Linux 了吧. Steam 平台上已经有超过700部游戏, 此外 GoG 上也有数十部移植到 Linux 平台的经典老游戏, 这还不算 PoL 基于 Wine 直接在 Linux 上跑 Windows 游戏呢. 没记错的话, Defense Grid 2 今天会放出 Linux 正式版. 之前 DG2 有 Linux beta 版, 据我的测试还只能在 1280×720 的窗口模式运行. 更好的消息是, Borderlands 的下一个版本 The Pre-sequel 将有 […]
