My friend MattDLN (aka "The Enabler") joins me for a gaming-soaked episode that even console players will enjoy. First we tackle what's possibly 2020's biggest gaming news: Microsoft purchasing Bethesda. How does PlayStation compete? How will Microsoft's bold move affect the overall gaming landscape.

Then we bring some tough love to ProtonDB and the overall state of Linux gaming. Plus: Matt's Linux origins and a new Discovery of the Week!

Special Guest: MattDLN.

I own a few VPS (hello Vultr, hello that tend to be connected through filtered public services and/or SSH tunnels. And that’s neither efficient nor easy to manage. Here comes the wg(4) era where all those peers will communicate with a bit more privacy and ease of management. News Roundup Foundation Sponsors FreeBSD LLDB Improvements ( With FreeBSD Foundation grant, Moritz Systems improved LLDB support for FreeBSD The LLDB project builds on libraries provided by LLVM and Clang to provide a great modern debugger. It uses the Clang ASTs and the expression parser, LLVM JIT, LLVM disassembler, etc so that it provides an experience that “just works”. It is also blazing fast and more permissively licensed than GDB, the GNU Debugger. LLDB is the default debugger in Xcode on macOS and supports debugging C, Objective-C, and C++ on the desktop and iOS devices and the simulator.

Cryptpad is a web office suite featuring easy real time collaboration on documents. Cryptpad is written in JavaScript and the daemon acts as a web server.
