More like the dust is collecting from the deck and onto the ‘ick poster’s ‘ick
what even compels someone to dig up random articles from retarded blogspam sites and post it here
This. Why can't you start a convo like a normal person, OP?
more like collecting dried cum lol
Unless you were an impulse-buying retard like half of the 512gbfags, then no. I use mine daily. Hell, I only just bothered installing Decky on mine because I was so satisfied with the out of box experience.
What's wrong with the 512 version?
Nothing he's just coping with his mirror screen and 45 second SD card loads
There's at least one steam deck that's 100% dust free.
Of course it won't get dusty if it's never taken out of the box.
of course. portable gamers already have a switch, deck doesn't do anything new
Kek. You're gonna have to try harder than that.
FUCK THE SWITCH!
i use mine every day or so, theres just nothing else to say about it. it does what it does very well.
The steam deck just turned one and I he think he's a woman.
This needs to stop.
I will now buy a deck
>extremely white and male
So.....every successful game dev studio?
valve is not a succesful game dev studio. they pump out goy slop the last 10 years like every one else
Even for the gaming industry Valve has more whites and dudes than other companies. It's HQ'd in Bellevue, where most tech and tech adjacent companies are filled with asians.
No wonder it's the best handheld ever made.
look at this guy's phenotype. why do all these guys look the same?
sounds like you've been brainwashed by polshit
>did you just recognize a pattern my dude?
Tell him to let a moron take over his 492k subscriber channel and watch him bubububu
If white males are problematic as he says, then that means we can safely disregard anything that comes out of his lips :^).
Why does this matter?
they cant attack valve really because its a privately owned company completely in the possession of gaben.
no shares to buy out, no investors to bribe, no board of directors to lobby.
so they have to attack it.
notice how privately owned companies are a rarity when it comes to big corporations.
so they try to attack valve by trying to destroy its reputation since they cant destroy it using money or influence.
i leave it to you to figure out who ~~*they*~~ are.
>sperging literal racism
>somehow it's fine with youtube and other media
It's impossible to be racist towards white people idiot
Kill all the white people
Whos gonna sell Steam Deck 2 for you then, bro?
>all these sudden hit peices against valve
Im surpised no one gets tired of these gnomish tricks
I'm all for criticizing Valve or any video game company if they've actually done something wrong which deserves criticism so that they and other developers can learn from their bullshit or mistakes, and hopefully do better. SJW's would call this "holding them accountable" and that's good for us consumers because it helps ensure companies can't just take advantage of consumers (it still happens but probably a lot less than it would otherwise).
But these anti-Valve articles are clearly just trying to shit on them for no justifiable reason. It's just senseless hate and baiting for clicks.
It will never work. Valve is a private company. Untouchable by those EGS bulshit.
Why does he looks like a ꜱⱺyjack with beard?
Wait, is this that dweeb who used to work at videogamer uk? Those guys used to be pretty good but game journos can never outrun the american brainrot
>People Make Games
JFK. I just looked up this channel and everyone working there needs to be put on a rocket and launched into the sun. Perfect example of why democracy cannot work. Fucking soibois and garden gnomes
Fucking crazy eyes, every single time.
people like this guy are a fucking blight on the modern gaming industry, he cares more about valve non-issues like being full of white males or than the fact that this once-beloved company got lazy and doesnt make games anymore
they don't play video games so they don't care. or they just slurp up cineslop games
>White people are bad becuase they exist anywhere
I feel pretty bad for white people, how can they say this about their own race?
Such a very ill race, I hope they get better.
I cannot even imagine what it's like to be one of these people and just be eternally obsessed over shit like this all the time. I guarantee like 80% of their thoughts are just thinking about shit like this and they get guilty if they even think about relaxing
If he had the balls to put his money where his mouth is he'd blow his brains out for being exceedingly white and debatably male.
do wypipo really ?
>white people are... LE BAD
why are redditors like this
Lol, my switch is collecting dust now I have a steam deck
>When it can run this at 60 anywhere
how long does your battery last?
>but it should give 8 hours!!!
No portable device isn't going to natively run it for more than that without seriously ruining picture quality and FPS.
Four hours for a portable console ain't that bad. Hope you have fun dude.
Did he post this as if she's hot? I'm really confused.
Really like mine. Most of the games I want to play don't eat the battery.
Depends what you're running. You can expect three to five hours.
you forgot the Q stamp
are you serious moron? AHIT is poorly optimized on the deck, tries hard to target 60 but dips every other second
Someone hasn't toggled settings. Runs at a locked 60 on mixed/performance settings even in subcon forest.
You can also go down to 9w (11 is really the minimum I'd want for smooth frametimes) but battery life is still around 2 hours. Not sure how he's getting 4 without an fps cap.
>Not sure how he's getting 4 without an fps cap.
I put the graphics at "High Performance", I disabled Depth of Field (idk if that does anything for battery I just think the effect is annoying), and used these settings. 4w sometimes dips to 55fps in subcon though, 5w sticks to 60 but the battery life is closer to 3 hours with that. Sorry for talking out of my ass anons...
That makes more sense. It's still great when you consider the Switch version only runs at maybe 4-5 hours at half the framerate with dips and N64 textures. So glad I just waited.
>Doesn't know about the settings option
Maybe there should be a check to see if retards can handle owning a Steam Deck before purchasing. Clearly, you'd fail this check. Dumb fucking gay.
Give it back.
Should've added female skulls to trigger the trannies
only asian and euro look human, why?
wait a second. those are all different.
It's congoloid now
I see the 'ingers, but where's the 'ick?
nice try moron.
return the laptop and switch
Had to be a moron
that better be your arm
Why are you playing obsolete shit instead of the superior Disgaea on Yuzu?
>launch with zero games
>still zero games a year later
What's the point?
Still 3000 more games than a switch
Shovelware does not qualify as games
So Switch has 5 games then? Deck has thousands of pc exclusives.
You don't even know what shovelware is you baboon mongrel retard lol.
I accept your concession 🙂
Games that are exclusive to PC, sonny boy.
>Games that are exclusive to PC
Do zoomers really not know how to google? You've really never heard of PC exclusives? I'm genuinely amused.
Because there are no noteworthy ones.
That's why you spend years begging on ports and boast about emulating games that console players played decades ago.
League of Legends and world of warcraft I guess.
>can't even play splatoon or battle a friends pokemon
You literally can do that on the deck
Race me on 8D. I've got a room set up let me know and I'll send the friend code
>Both shit games from series past their prime, especially the latter
Yep, 'tendo's dead.
software or online content that has been added to a CD or placed on the internet without having been altered so as to suit the new medium.
what's wrong with apples?
go play a real online game you fat pedophile
of course the chud is obsessed with quantity over quality
Switch has no games.
>bro so mindbroken over console exclusives adding value to their underpowered overpriced fisher price bundles of silicon that he misses the whole point of the deck
leave this board and go commit crimes or something, moron
>the whole point of the deck
To be a glorified paper weight? Because nobody but valvetards even thought about the deck as anything but
But enough about the PS5
Literally nobody cares about the ps5. Enough with the Snoy boggieman cope and accept the fact you got grifted by a company notorious for grifting
>He was the artifactfag all along
KEK. But no thanks I'm enjoying my whole pc library on deck too much.
>the whole point of the deck
my phone emulates better than the deck and is actually a useful device that can fit in your pocket
>my phone emulates better than the deck
Most things emulate better than deck.
Also, what emulates better on your phone? Even vit3k runs great on PCs now since that update. Older all consoles run flawlessly, how can it run better than flawlessly?
You know you're full of it but you're in here anyway. Just get a deck dude rather than trying to pretend it's this horrible thing you totally don't want.
your phone doesnt have physical controls
bro google for 2 seconds before posting on this website fr
You must donate money to daddy Gabe to help his business distinguish itself from windows
Nah I just wanted him to demonstrate that he spouts buzzwords without knowing what they mean.
I'm being dead serious, deck is a failure. How many decks have you seen in the wild vs. switches?
That's right, you can easily walk into your local Gamestop or Best Buy and pick up a Steam Deck.
My gamestop and best buy are to the left of where I live 🙁
None and None, I don't leave my house.
don't worry anon
I thought that your joke was funny
>deck chuds getting dabbed on by a biological female
YWNBAW and Nintendo will never be good again.
Playing at your desktop is the intended docked experience, not using yesteryear's budget laptop performance as your main system.
I use it non-stop though
It's my only gaming device. I use my laptop for art and music and since I travel often I decided to buy a Deck to play my Steam games instead of building a desktop just to leave it abandoned on my house. I use it daily and I have just finished doing some Raya Lucaria exploration on Elden Ring. The Deck is great but yeah if you have a PC then I don't think that it'd be a good investment.
I use it 3 hours every day minimum
Ill never understand Ganker hate for the deck, having your steam library on the go and on top of that being powerfull enough to emulate stuff up to the switch should be an instabuy for everyone, instead everyone is shitting on it for no other reason than...
>its a soulles switch
We've hated every UMPC newgay redditor
Seethe little moron.
Well yeah, what's the point of having a deck when you can play the same games with better graphics and framerate on your computer? It's a much better experience.
Just downloaded Wind Waker, Advance Wars, Advance Wars 2, ans Super Smash Bros. Melee on my deck.
I own physical copies of them so it's legal in my house.
>Advance Wars, Advance Wars 2
the remakes are about to come out
I don't think you understand how this works, you can't just download a copy of the games from someone else. It needs to be dumped from your own copies of the games. Even then it's questionable.
>Even then it's questionable.
lmao, I dl them and don't own them
As I said, it's legal in my house.
Your house is still situated in a country that has governing laws. I fear for you, anon.
Each of us is a nation.
Prove to the court that I didn't dump my cartridges and BIOS manually and personally.
I like committing crimes
While what you're saying is a technically accurate way to interpret copyright law.
You couldn't meaningfully assert that in court without engaging in potentially illegal data gathering
>he doesn't listen to albums on youtube instead of going to get the CDs in his house
did zoomers grow up unironically thinking the fbi was going to kick down their door for pirating tv/movies/music/vidya?
I just feel like stealing from Nintendo of all companies is pretty fucking stupid
it is within nintendo's power to provide a better service than pirates do but they just won't so why should i bother if they won't
The literally do you just click a button and it all works
yeah clicking the install button for emudeck was pretty easy. where's the button that gives me access to their back catalogue of games that aren't shovelware dogshit?
>The literally do you just click a button and it all works
>Can't remap my controls without doing a system-wide remapping
>Waiting months for Nintendo to dripfeed games
>paid online is STILL garbage
Nintendo promised these titles 6 months ago and we have fucking 4 of them.
The list of GBA games they've promised is lacking shit like Wario Land 4 and Metroid Zero Mission
The service Nintendo provides is absolute bottom of the barrel fucking awful and not one single person should feel bad about pirating their games.
Not to mention, I can't fucking wait for the next Nintendo console to release and for them to go
>"uhhhhh prease undastandu wii wiru start dripfeeding deez geemus all oba again. prease sub to za nintendo online prus expansion pakku prus super star pack and u can enjoy 1 game every 3 months"
I hate you drones so much it's unreal.
why people pay 700 bucks to play games that our phones can easily run?
There's the page 10 bump everyone was waiting for
journalism fail: adding personal opinion on an article
I play my deck every night before I fall asleep in bed. it is super comfy.
>and I bet
NOBODY GIVES A FUCK. PEOPLE AREN'T READING FOR YOUR GAY OPINION.
I don't own one as I barely game anymore, but my friend uses it almost every day. He games more on it than his PC or Switch at this point
I can't help it, I've been on a gamecube kick lately.
>tfw still use my steam deck practically every day and love it
Why is having a comfy Steam Deck thread impossible on Ganker? I'm not going to fucking Reddit so it feels bad I can't talk about the steam deck anywhere.
Every thread about the deck on Ganker is just shitposting and trolling. Do any of you even own a deck?
Mods should rangeban India and China and threads would improve
But then there would be no steam deck threads at all
They can't buy steam decks
how are there that many russians on steam when the majority of them just pirates all their shit
they probably add them to the steam client once installed for compatibility and just to have the comfiness of a launcher, or to have their games in the same place they have CS:GO.
Games usually aren't expensive in Russia, and I like auto updates and Steam Workshop.
cause they are rich now its no longer the 90's
>half of steam is literally chinese bots
the day gaben dies steams going to get sold to the chinks just watch
Yeah, for that Chinese client which only has 20 games allowed on it.
>ruskies guesswork says china numbah wan
Ah yes Ganker, the bastion of indian and chinese steam deck discussion. They have their own ecosystems anon. Same thing with steam.
You are right except Ganker is now mostly Hispanichad territory
VIVA LA RAZA
>Steamdrones are chinks
Color me surprised.
fuck off chink
It's mostly tendos.
what games are you playan comfybro?
In what position do you play? I always get cramps in my arms when holding it while laying down. Even if I put it over a pillow, holding it close enough to my face so I can read the text is very uncomfortable.
because trying to force minority steam deck users taste in Ganker into mainstream bs is shit
Trying to force people to eat shit will always result in this way what's the surprise
Sold off my deck months ago when steam deck stood there like the OP pic
Because we have both Sweeny and Chink handheld shills, and on top of that retards that think people will give them Ganker gold if they say "Steam Bad"
for that price I could get a decent gamer pc
>b-but that's blasphemy!
If I wasn't such a garden gnome I would have bought one just to play my porn games in bed instead of playing on my pc.
But as a few other posters said earlier I suppose the impulse buying retards probably bought one just for the sake of buying
She'd be right if Pizza Tower on the Deck didn't fuck and I didn't play CS:GO on mine

lol shut the fuck up kimberly you vapid cunt
Have you seen that episode of The IT Crowd when Jen makes fun of Roy for bragging about his new cell phone? It's so weird to me how these things change, phones used to be something only nerds cared about until the iPhone, now it's the normie cool thing to do, and all of these vapid whores are "tech experts"
women don't care about "phones" they only care about iPhones, to the point that they will look down on you if you are using an android phone even if said phone costs 3x more than the latest iPhone.
Women are beyond retarded.
>Searched for "Kimberly Gedeon"

It's a man then.
lel... I've had a 512mb for a while now and it's still a daily sidekick. When I buy games now, I revolve the decision around how good it will be to play it on the Deck.
RE4 has some graphical issues but it's totally playable at 30fps.
I'm literally holding it on my lap right now
I also literally brought it yesterday to a friends house to play video games on it
sadly after 2h the controllers kept disconnecting due to the really bad bluetooth connection of the deck
>I also literally brought it yesterday to a friends house to play video games on it
Why do this? If they're so boring you have to bring it there why bother having the friendship?
>he gets paid to shit on video games he never played or bought
are they hiring?
I bought it like a month ago and now I'm wondering why did I even do it lol. I just play on my PC anyway.
I want to know what the stable defusion performance is, so even if I don't use it, If I get one, I can have it plugged in and doing shit like it.
This is a joke right? are tendies really this delusional I mean it for real.
It is indeed collecting dust... in the car at work where I play games and read VNs on it
>first year on Ganker
>ew a dick
>10 years on Ganker
>omg a dick I wanna suck it and I want it in my ass
i just defeated pink monkey in ape escape 2
the physics in this game are extremely underwhelming. they even ruined the copter..
That's odd, because I was just playing mine yesterday.
why are you advertising dying journalist websites for free?
I just got back into Deathloop after dropping it months ago, just because I can play it on the living room TV rather than at my desk.
The Deck has got me playing games more often for the first time in years. Suspend feature is the biggest reason tbh.
People don't want handheld PC gaming, they think they do, but they don't.
>and I bet
How do these people have jobs in "journalism"
I still use mine plenty, it just depends on what games I want to play.
I use mine frequently. It's essentially just a laptop. I can play everything I normally play on my desktop PC when I'm at home and that's all I really wanted.
I unironically used mine every day since the day I bought it with like 2, or 3 exceptions I think because I was too tired
about the same here
deck seems very flopped and shitted from what i am reading here
Learn English you dumb third world subhuman shitskin shill
>all those seething replies
Not as dusty as kimberly's gash.
Its a zoomer toy. PC gaming was never meant to be enjoyed like that. At best, it was a novelty. Much like VR.
I'd like to get one, but it's a bit too version 1 right now for my taste
I can understand that. I think it's still the best handheld ever made despite that and am routinely impressed by it, but it's exciting knowing it will only get better.
>People acting like 3 hours battery is okay or reasonable
Am I taking crazy pills here, or what?
I'd say 3 hours for a handheld isn't great, but it isn't awful either, and you can get external batteries that will expand on that a lot if it's a big issue for you.
It's definitely something to consider but I don't see it as an issue that just completely sinks the deck.
To put it in perspective, 3 hours is roughly what the switch lite or original switch has as it's battery life when running it's most demanding games, and lots of people like or accept the battery life there or don't even mention it.
Why is the deck held to a different standard than that?
For something I'm just gonna play around the house it's more than adequate
Depends on the game and the settings. It is literally a better battery than the switch's which is the only other real option and it is hilariously sad that people on Ganker of all places will try to spin a portable device being able to play modern major releases at sometimes ultra settings 60fps into a negative about battery life while ignoring that if you nuke those settings and play weaker games that'd be on par with the switch it lasts way longer than 3 hours.
Console fanboys are really something else working against their own self interest to defend corporations that bend them over the table.
I think what I've learned over time is that despite their protests, people really like taking it up the ass and being told what to do, what to think, shut down, and locked to a limited set of options.
It's easier, and for some reason it makes them feel at home, and for most people that's enough.
Choice paralyzation is very real and it applies to everything the deck is capable of. Most people don't want to have to think, they just want to be told what to do, even if it'd only take a little bit of time to get a vastly better experience. It's easier. And it's easy to exploit.
when you read those panels left to right, the comic takes on a completely different tone
It really depends on where you want to use the Deck.
Ir you want to take it outside, use it play game on a plane trip or something like that, then 3h is clearly shit. You could try to lower the performance and play less demanding games, but still...
Personally all I use the deck for is to play game on bed after a tiresome day of work, and I find it kino.
>Why doesnt my device that plays modern games last 15 hours like my gameboy!!!!111
Are you fucking retarded
where are you going for more than three hours that
>has no power outlets
>wont allow you to use an external battery
>is a location that you would want to play computationally intensive pc games
Ganker will suck gabens cock if asked so don't be surprised that they are defending the shit battery life
uhh so make a better handheld with same fps/resolution that lasts longer
Should be easy right?
>mfw Ganker desperately tried to convince others that the deck would outsell the switch
deck seem very flopped
Not all all. It still runs new games just fine. I've been playing the RE4 demo on mine when I'm at work. Granted, the game is locked to 30 fps at low to medium settings but what other handheld can you play RE4 with?
>Not even that old and it's already out of date
Is Valve the new Apple?
I can play Prototype, Way of the Samurai 4, and fuckin Lost Planet 2 all in the same afternoon, while cooking dinner, eating, and taking a shit. To me, it's golden.
Fuck steam deck.
1 fucking year and they still couldn't get the deck selling in my country.
Another hourly thread of chink Ayeno shills seething as hard as possible to keep their social credit scores up.
IGN gave the Ayaneo 2 a 9/10
why would they be seething?
IGN was advertising that trash, not reviewing it
Anyone know of a decent dock for it?
This. I'd love to play in the bedroom on the TV.
Just get a $25 hub with HDMI out and power delivery, it's going to work just as well as any $50-$80 dock.
It's showing around six hours whenever I am playing PS2 games, I never play that long so I can't confirm it as completely accurate, but I've played close to three hours in one sitting and it was around 55% left. Most of the time at home I just plug it in to the outlet on my side table so I don't even think about battery life.
Convince me not to impulse buy the 512gb version right now Ganker
You really arent gonna play it as much
Technically buying the 64gb one and installing a 256gb drive is a better proposition if you aren't factoring in installation fees as part of the cost.
Buy the 64gb version and get a 1TB SSD from Amazon. Takes ten minutes to swap them and reinstall the OS.
It's collecting dust on her shelf because she bought it just to get along with the "trend".
As any other useless cunt would.
Imagine gimping yourself out of games because you don't like seeing competition. What do you stand to lose by owning both a Switch and a Deck. Hell, a new camera lens costs $500-$700; even shoes can hit about $200-$300. Why does Ganker act like buying multiple platforms is equivalent to hitting your dick with a hammer?
literally the only reason to own a deck is to emulate switch games for free and it cant even do that well
just modchip a switch oled, deck is fucking pointless
I can't play Anno on Switch
I can't play Eschatos on Switch
I can't play ZeroRanger on Switch
I can't play Lunacid on Switch
I can't play FF7R on Switch
I can't play Underrail on Switch
Etc. The deck is far from "pointless."
>hurrdurr shit games
And so is half of the Switch library
>What do you stand to lose by owning both a Switch and a Deck.
The pay to use your own internet fee?
Overall more expensive vidya because of the nintentax?
>What do you stand to lose by owning both a Switch and a Deck
I don't think I would gain much by buying a Steam Deck as I already own a non-hacked Switch Oled as my main gaming platform for japanese vidya, which replaced my desktop PC. And if I were to seek for a moment retro emulation on a portable device, I still have my old hacked Vita Slim.
Steam Deck is also not as convenient as the Switch in regular use, as it looked like a fat GameGear when I tried it from a relative of mine. The idea of the Deck remains cool but again it's a different device that aims for a different audience, but I know this is Ganker and everything must be consolewar bullshit.
Screen is shit. Too fucking big and gay to be seen in public with it.. The psp was pure comfy.
Yo Steam Deck owners, how's the performance on the steam deck when plugged into a 4k display?
Docked into a high-resolution display or in handheld mode, does it stay cool?
How's the controller latency in handheld vs docked mode?
>Controller latency in handheld vs docked mode
I've heard some people say there's controller latency. As in, when you do something with the controls, it takes a split second for the screen to act accordingly.
I don't really know how to explain that's not how input polling works
The performance hit is pretty bad. It’s better to upscale from 1080p
oh man the performance is that noticeably worse when plugged into a 4k display?
I can see they Nintendo cum coming out of her ass, also what a disgusting finger holy shit
I've been playing it everyday lately. If I don't play it I'm not playing that day because I'm tired or something.
That's because women don't play games, of course it's collecting dust
I play my Deck every day. It's not my fault that the author is a chud that doesn't like video games.
I think the mods should just fuse Ganker with /lgbt/ at this point based on the tone of the comments in virtually every thread.
I just had a thought, can you play local multiplayer between 2 steam decks or a steamdeck and a PC? I googled it, and all I found was "couch coop" where you share the same screen or the shitty "remote play" where you still share the same screen, but now over wifi.
I mean the same way that 2+ Nintendo DSs or 3DSs or PSPs would wirelessly hook up without the need of a wifi or ethernet connection and you each have your own screen. I remember it was called ad hoc multiplayer on PSP.
yeah, its called LAN
its been a feature of pc games for decades
Does that work for games that don't have online capability? Say for example Death Road to Canada or Cuphead or Spidersaurs?
I just asked because the situation randomly popped up in my head when I saw a MHFU thread the other day. Almost every game where the players have separate screens have online these days so it;s a non-issue but again, I was just curious.
You'd need LAN connectivity built in to the game you were trying to run if you didn't want to stream inputs from one deck to the other and share the screen.
Only way I know of would be remote play or parsec. Idk nearly enough about computers & networking to know if there's some kind of port forwarding bullshit or whatever you could do.
You'd have to make one of the Decks an adhoc router (Assuming no existing infrastructure for connection), but yes it'd be pretty easy to do "Local Wireless" play on a deck.
I'd like to see a video of it in practice.
Buy me another deck and I'll demonstrate
Yeah I'm curious about this too.
i don't get it. if you're both on the same wifi you just play online multiplayer? What's the difference? If you're too worried about latency, many pc games still support LAN
Is the anti glare glass worth it or is it just a meme?
I think it's worth it. Sometimes the weather is beautiful and I just want to sit on the back porch while I play. It looks/works great outside. If you're 110% certain you'll never play it outside then maybe not. But it's also more internal storage so why not?
Why are people so loyal to Nintendo?
Didn't Valve just say that around half of Deck buyers now use it more than their own PC?
AND MA'AM GEDEON KIMBERLY THE ALL-SHILLING
What is wrong with her eyes?
>master's degree in journalism
she sounds like an insufferable retard
About to use mine right now, waiting for a friend to hop into an SoR4 run
best game on Deck is zombie panic, co-op horror, free on steam
I've been steadily using mine ever since I got it last April
The deck is so based, I keep it locked in my trunk and use it to pass the time when I'm too drunk to drive home and it works like a charm.
>Guessing is now journalism
And they wonder why people don't take them seriously lmao.
what do you expect from a moron?
>literally every game ever created in my pocket

>he doesn’t have cargo jncos
I just beat Metal Slug 3D earlier today and now I'm working on Burnout 3. I've played more games on this thing in the past year than I've played in general in the last 10.
i want to get an 'eck but the base model costs 500$ in my third world country and i fi want to send it back to america for repair because it's defective, it will cost more than 100$.
so i'm very hesitant.
the 500$ can be better used towards my next build.
>The original Crysis (not the shitty remastered one) is on Gog.
>Doesn't run on Steam Deck
do people generally like the remastered version of Crysis or the original one better?
i dunno. does it matter? it still made money. dont know anyone but normal fags that use PS4's but does that make it a less successful console? no.
cool published news you have there
It was mentioned earlier, but what are you playing this week? I picked Lunacid back up since I heard the irl full moon affects the gameplay in a lot of ways. I really hope it gets finished because I lost a whole night to this shit even with it's dogshit npc designs.
Pokemon Scarlet and the demo of cereza and the lost demon
Been streaming wo long but want to drop it and pick octopath 2 back up
I was just playing mine earlier today, and now that my DnD game is done I'm going to play it again.
I don't use it or most handhelds if I'm not traveling but the thing is a godsend when I'm stuck on a plane for 5+ hours and get to play Rance.
I'm pressing that call attendant button nonstop until the sky marshal shoots you if you're gonna play fuckgames in the seat next to me
I would have loved this a decade ago. Nowadays I can’t stand Steam and what it’s done to gaming so I refuse to buy one
It’s literally all I play on. I don’t even really use my Xbox itself anymore since I stream it to my deck
Still using mine every day at work.
Same. The thing is what I've wanted for over a decade now.
its a perfectly fine 1440p gpu even if its a bit expensive
the last time i even touched a console was for the theatrythm demo and i think i'm just gonna play it on the deck anyway with yuzu.
it's an absurdly comfy machine
If you’re morbidly obese and have a micropenis, then you can rub your tiny chode on a Steam Deck.
I love this lil bro like you wouldn't believe.
I just got a laptop
My girlfriend plays her steam deck all the fucking time. Lots of visual novels and fotm multiplayer games
Fucking incredible journalism
I don't want a Steamdeck because my Switch is doing exactly that.
I'm enjoying mine, just got my Epic and GoG libraries on it too.
Any games that you wanted to play on it that ended up not running properly or at all?
not yet. the info on https://www.protondb.com/ has been accurate so far and people usually list if they needed a workaround of some kind
I was also recently playing Guild Wars 2 on it which is a bit janky since it doesn't have proper controller support - but it works and is definitely playable using a community control scheme, despite being listed as completely incompatible on its Steam page. I like how strict Valve is being with that
what valve needs to fix next (and not just for the steam deck) is allow you to skip launchers
does the deck run half life 2?
No half life 2 is a 360 game and was never ported to linux
native run. Valve quite literally used source engine as the 1st testing mice for proton. Hell dota2 is perfectly playable on the deck in case you want to piss off 9 other people
What's the battery life emulating PS2?
depends on the game
3 1/2 to 4 1/2 hours i'd say
I haven't really kept close track as I'm plugged in most of the time, but feels like 4-5 hours. Even with older systems, emulation is going to be a little more power hungry.
How easy is it to replace the parts? Say I get drift or my shoulder buttons stop working. Can they easily be replaced? I know storage can
is the steam deck a good desktop replacement? because i wouldn't be using it in portable mode often
is a low powered amd apu linux pc a good desktop replacement?
maybe look up gaming NUCs, I'd expect some of them to beat the deck in performance and/or price. Or heck if you already have a desktop pc and want to play your games in your living room you could use steam inhome streaming on a cheap nuc or an nvidia shield which would save you a LOT of money
I use it more than my PC
but it really has gotten old
I payed a few games that were compatible, but honestly there are so many that aren't and it's pretty annoying to mod skyrim, I'm going to start modding again on my PC
I'm on my fifth RMA for the deck and I don't even want it anymore but valve won't give me a refund
Keep going. I want to see what your tally is by the end of the year.
>I'm on my fifth RMA for the deck
what's wrong with your deck?
worse rattling fan
oversensitive and mushy touchpad, mushy trigger, joystick that grinds the housing
two oversensitive touchpads and a mushy trigger
they keep either fucking it up and not fixing it or sending me replacements with different problems
I'm surprised that Valve support even takes time to reply to mentally ill basket cases like this one
probably just european
they are highly autistic about these kinds of things
yeah, we want it good, and we want it with 3 years guaranty, feels good to be a consoomer with rights
>it's mentally ill to expect a working product
how deep is valve's cock in your throat?
the gaben semen slurping defense force might be the most autistic cult of personality since the snoys of the 00's
>Mushy trigger (according to your mentally ill drugged up OCD brain which is about as credible as average streetcorner loon rambling) == not working product
Yeah no. There's literally not a single thing you described that described a product that doesn't work.
But I agree that Valve support sucks, actually good support service would ship you a rope or a helium tank after the third fake RMA request, because you best know yourself it's the only way to solve your problems.
Take your meds schizo
I'd use mine if I had one, but you can still only get grey imports in Australia and I don't want to risk it. I do use my current UMPC every other day, it's just a bit of a slow machine so I only play stuff like visual novels.
>page 10 bump after page 10 bump
This is a deck thread alright
>bought a deck
>dock it and use it as a PC
>wish I had gotten a PC instead
>Ordered a Steam Deck last month
>Was suppose to arrive on Monday 2 weeks ago
>Was stuck for no reason at a warehouse for 2 weeks in the last leg of the delivery process until I sent an email asking them to get on with it and send it already
>Won't arrive until later this week
I fucking hate UPS
1. very likely wont arrive, either stolen by fedex or taken off your doorstep.
2. deck will have dead pixels, IPS backlight bleed, sticky buttons, fan that rattles, suboptimal battery health, case shell parting, and joystick drift. you will RMA it and valve will give you a refurbished unit (aka another defective unit that they are hoping you won't realize is defective). you will RMA this one and this cycle will continue for a few months before you decide to try to repair the deck yourself.
3. you open the deck up and immediately thread all 8 screws since they are made out of clay. your sd card snaps in half when you open the back panel because you forgot to remove it. you peel back the aluminum tape to open the battery shield so that you can properly replace components that you have purchased from ifixit at exorbitant prices -- the warranty on your deck is now voided. you go to unplug the battery cable but realize it is made out of paper and it snaps in half.
4. no longer functional, you pay to send it off to an ifxit repair center. you are now charged an even more exorbitant fee and spend weeks waiting for your 'repaired' refurbished (broken) deck to arrive.
5. it is now may 2023 and tears of the kingdom has released on the nintendo switch 2. you have spent over $2,000 in the span up to its release and no longer have the funds necessary to purchase and enjoy the greatest game of the next 10 years.
Valve has claimed another victim
I dropped my deck on the floor and it made the casing pop open
how fucked am I
>material this fragile
you'll be lucky if it even boots by tomorrow
Squeeze it back together gently you're totally fine. Happened to me once too
>41 flatpaks need upating
>bumped from page 10 to post 'this'
My current PC is about 11 years old and finally dying on me. I dont really want to spend the 1,5k to replace it. Could the Deck work as a substitute? I want to play some dungeon crawlers and maybe rpgs like Kingmaker.
It could, but if you're not taking any advantage of the portability then you might find better value making your own budget PC. The deck makes sacrifices to be a portable device. You can check game compatibility on protondb.com which usually has people listing any workarounds they needed to use
Been playing strategy games on mine. Works pretty well if you map the magnifier tool to a button.
toggle magnifier is a godsend, even games i can read perfectly fine
i literally emulate switch games just to have access to the magnifier tool
I still use mine for the same reason I bought it, to play fighting games at my locals. In particular I use it for GG+R a lot.
