Quickie on Steam

So, I know I’m late to the party, but Yooka Laylee has been released and I got it through kickstarter (after @JonTron mentioned it).

I really enjoyed Banjo-Kazooie and its sequel for the N64. I know there are bigger fans out there, so I won’t pretend I’m know all about everything; however, they were good games. So playing a new game by the same team sounds like fun.

Now, this isn’t just a post singing the praises on Yooka Laylee (I haven’t even played it yet!), but instead how to get steam set up on OpenSuSE.

There is a repo that contains it (although I’ve been told that steam regularly breaks under OpenSuSE Tumbleweed), so let’s go and add it!

Now, you may need to adjust the repo URI depending on your version, but that’s it! I used to use a .ymp file (aka 1-click install), but they are a pain in the butt sometimes, so just go through the two steps as root in the command line.

Once you have it installed, you’re good to go.

Have a lot of fun!
