So, after finally fixing my environment, and manually having to use 3.17 kernel, I have a running environment, but Dungeon Defenders still hangs, and Dota 2 has graphic rendering issues — meaning I miss the opponents and they can creep up behind me, along with enemy grunts.

Guess I won’t be playing anything Steam-based for a while….


With my new laptop up and running, I am happily playing several Steam-based games:

Dust (I am pretty impressed by this. It is a platformer, side-scrolling game with really nice visuals, voice-acting and insane combo options)
Dungeon Defenders (yet to start this under Steam, but played it extensively under Android)
Dota (downloading)
Wakfu (played on my old 32-bit box, but Steam refuses to start the game if you are running 32-bit arch. With a 64-bit arch, it will start)

I also have some extra games that I’m not playing or stopped playing:
Bastion (tried it and it is interesting, but I’m finding it really difficult to get into
Dungeon Hearts (slow and laggy)
Ravensword: Shadowlands (an interesting 3D, but very little customisation options)
Toribash (Appeal wore off very quickly)

I am also playing two non-Steam-based games

World of Warcraft
League of Legends

Although, I have them tied into the Steam framework so I can start them up via Steam and grab screenshots, etc.

I have also looked at Fraps and Kazam — two screen recorders (Fraps for Windows, Kazam for Linux) and both perform pretty well. Fraps performs great, I got smooth high-quality video out of WoW. Kazam, I am tweaking settings. It also generates good-quality video, but I need to play with the framerate and encoding settings. Look out for some uploads at some point in the future.

Dungeon Defenders II hands-on preview – free-to-play done right?

Dungeon Defenders II hands-on preview – free-to-play done right?

I was fortunate enough to play Dungeon Defenders I on Android via both Google Play (before Trendy took it down) and Humble Bundle, and loved it. I’m itching to try DDII when it becomes available. With my new higher-spec laptop currently happily playing both League of Legends and World of Warcraft, I’ve become more active on Steam, and found that DDII is now available as an Early Access on there. So if you’re keen for your DD fix, take a look there. Currently Windows-only, though. :(

Dungeon Defenders

I re-setup my ASUS Transformer TF101 with AOKP and decided to reinstall the apps from Google Play. Fortunately, it keeps track of everything you installed, so all I had to do was scroll down and start clicking install on everything I wanted back. One of the ones I had completely forgotten about, was Dungeon Defenders: Second Wave. It’s not visible in the market anymore, but you can still download it.

Since it’s been disabled, the in-game purchases no longer work, but then again, you don’t necessarily need it to play the game.


The game is still a good, fun, tower-defence 3D game. And I found that there’s a beta of Dungeon Defenders 2 available, but you have to request a beta invite. I won’t be doing that because I’m only playing DD casually, and irratically.
