Be honest Ganker, you aren’t seriously considering abandoning your desktop PC bros for a gimmick like portability, are you?
We can’t consider you part of the PC Master Race if so. This is not PC gaming. This is a joke, and a very offensive one from Gabe.

  2. I have a based macbook. I am waiting for the new ones to be revealed tomorrow as I am definitely getting one. If they can play games I might cancel my deck reservation but they probably cant so I’m still getting one

        • I’ve used a Switch before. I have no idea why people would ever argue that it’s comfortable to hold or use in general
          >No actual dpad and sticks and buttons directly above each other because of Nintendo’s dumb 3-in-1 controller marketing gimmick that nobody uses
          >No real significant grips behind the Joycons for the same reason

            I have many problems with the switch, but god-tier control scheme is not one of them

          • What’s the point of getting a switch instead of a laptop if you were going to only put it on a desk anyway?

          • Because I can take it OFF the desk, and play it on the bus/train/plane if I need to. it’s all about having the option.

            But I also have a gayminge laptop

          • >shitty ergonomics
            this is so subjective it’s not even funny at this point. You might as well be saying it’s "not fun"

  3. Yes I know this is complete heresy to the "master race" but the idea of a standard and practically universal hardware configuration sounds amazing to me. Imagine the drivers and the documentation that will be available.
    Also it seems a bit better than my actual PC that I lost in an accident, which played everything I wanted. Laptop+deck makes more sense to me right now than starting a whole new PC with prices being what they are.

  4. Abandoning? Definitely not. I have my desktop PC for a reason.

    But, it’s nice to have a functional device that I can toss in my bag and play while at the bus stop or waiting for an appointment.

    It’s not a case of one or the other. It’s two different device that both have their own usage cases. You can have both.

  5. I have a gaming pc, switch, xbox, ps5 and I WILL be buying the Deck too because I like video games. Go ahead and call me a consoomer if you want, but all of these satisfy different needs for me.

    Where people are getting these stupid ideas about "people are going to abandon their PCs"? Is this some kind of tendies cope?

  7. I only signed up for Steam when they announced Linux support. You can figure the rest out.
    The Deck will help me work through my backlog at work.

      • Eh. I think I have come across one game where they were an annoyance, and I just changed the resolution. Never had a game not work at all.

        • I’ve had games not work well on my Win2 because the screen is basically a flipped cellphone screen, is the Max some bullshit like that as well?

          Reply
          • Nope. not at all. From memory, when I had a win 2, I had problems like that myself…with some of the soul reaver games? They would play in like..half screen? I paid 50c for a program on steam that fixed it, in the end.

          • I feel like I talked with you tons of times by now in these threads, have you really not have any hardware problems with GPD? I must have the worst fucking luck, you have no fucking idea how many times the Win2 (or rather multiple Win2s) failed on me.

          • I think I have only been in about 2 of these threads. Maybe we met in one of those. I had a battery problem in my win 2, and it would only hold about 60% of the charge. I bought a battery to replace it, but I ended up trading it for a modded switch and a few games in the end and getting a win max. Apart from that, no? Maybe a dead pixel, if that counts?

          • Hum.. to be honest I was this close to buying a Max but then the Deck was announced and I got a Q1 one. I just can’t take more fucking headaches from hardware failures, I honestly hope yours holds out.

          • It makes perfect sense for most people to buy a deck. I think I will probably get one in January, because there will certainly be quite a few of them on ebay. Guess I am gonna wait to see how they perform properly first. I really hate using Linux, especially for games.

          • The max is great, but if you have had hardware problems with GPD, don’t do it. Nobody flat out deserves your money if you’ve been burned before.

    • You would think that people would be nicer about these devices, considering that the steam deck is one of them. But I get the impression that people only want the deck because it’s a Valve-made product, not because of anything it does/can do.

  9. Valve hasn’t made anything worthwhile since like 2010, literally just hoarding money from steam and the retards who pay them. Now they release shit like this. Only mentally stunted boomer boards like Ganker praise valve nowadays.

    • Did you lose your desire to sit in a chair as well?
      I’ll never understand this shit take. I can only imagine it’s something made up by brats that have never had a job in their life.

      • This is retarded lmao. It’s more like you work as a cook and then for fun when you get home you cook the rest of the night. And then wake up and cook all day again.

      • It’s not healthy sitting at a desk all day long, retard. If you work at a desk for 8 hours it’s not a good idea to spend several more at a desk in the evening / at night. You’ll regret it by the time you’re 35.
