Steam deck 2 hate thread

Announcing a second version of the handheld PC kills all interest in the first version when it hasn't even been a year since it was released.
Why did valve betray gen 1 buyers? Was this a paypig device the whole time?
Nintendo wanted to have one performance level and keep it consistent throughout. But valve wants to shit out 50 versions of the deck?
Valve screwed over the Artifact fanbase by cancelling the Artifact 2.0 beta without even allowing users to invite friends like they said they would in January 2021 and does not deserve your financial support for these gross consumer-unfriendly practices.

Stop believing steam.

    Why on Earth does Valve keep producing physical merchandise? It didn't happen this year, but I'm prepared to buy a Steam Deck 1 for $7 next Christmas. Those tax write-offs must be legendary.

    Unlike consoles, the Steam Deck doesn't instantly become irrelevant when they announce a new one. New games will keep being available on Steam Deck even when and if the second one comes out, and also for well beyond that.

      They didn't even say that.
      They said they're working on a new version that has a better (OLED) screen and better battery life, the base specs will remain the same other than that.

      They haven't announced anything, thats the thing. In the same interview in which a Valve rep said they were working on a Deck2, they also said they wanted to make another Steam Controller, and were considering Steam Machines again as well. Vague terms, no time tables, no real commitment, just a general sentiment that these are things they'd like to do one day in the future.

    You got your Deck, you set it up, you're excited, you install 20 games, and then choice paralysis hits you, and you end up putting it away, not playing all your 20 games. Instead you find yourself scrolling through the Steam Deck subreddit, addicted to news and other peoples hype and happiness for the device.

    Here's what worked for me:

    I exclusively keep my Steam Deck at my bed table, so its always within reach when I'm in the bed. The only other electronics I keep there is my phone and tablet, which I can't game the same games on.

    If you have a laptop: I turned my Laptop into my Desktop by hooking it up to an external monitor on my desk, so the Laptop will never be able to lure me to use it in bed. If you don't have a laptop, this issue will solve itself, as you'll probably have a desktop instead.

    Install 2D games that are easy to jump in and out of. My 2 personal favorites right now are Vampire Survivors and Broforce.

    Install a few 3D games, that you can play when you feel motivated to play for longer sessions. This can be Skyrim, The Witcher, or something completely else. Your choice.

    I hope these tips work for you, because they definitely work for me. Choice paralysis is a bitch, so its best to keep your backlog of installed games limited, at least for me.

                Sadly it was stolen. In a small town in southern Utah. I've always been into motorcycles as well. My 2008 Honda vtx1800 the ex wife got it in the divorce. And I've had a lot of other bad luck with vehicles so haven't been into them much after those things happened.

            Last night she asked if I'd join a gym with her. I said yes. Then asked if she'd play this game with me. She said no and walked away. So later I said. Actually no I won't be going to the gym with you. You asked me to do something with you. I said yes. I asked you to do something with me. You said no. So that's your answer.

                It’s more important to communicate needs and expectations clearly. My wife and I struggled with this the first few years. Helped a lot when I would tell her what time I’d be done with my hobby (usually games or woodworking or game dev). It gave me a deadline I would make an effort to keep, and set expectations for her.

                This isn't healthy and it is a symptom of a relationship coming to its end. You and your spouse don't need to like the same things, but a happy relationship is one where you can share your passions with each other.

                Ya'll should try working on your communication and see if you can come to terms with what you enjoy doing by yourselves and together. Just because she doesn't like your hobby doesn't mean your relationship is a lost cause. She probably sees the gym/working out as a very mutually-beneficial activity, and gaming is understandably harder for some to perceive that way. You must have gotten together for a reason.

                No I completely agree. And to be fair the only time she gets upset is when I stay up playing games instead of going to bed with her. Which I have worked on. Now once it hits 10:30 I turn off the computer. Except for on weekends. She didn't get mad or anything. And never tells me I can't play games. It's just more of a grunt. Like she'd prefer I did something else.

                When it comes to making dinner together. Watching a movie or when we deep clean the house every Sunday I stay away from games. But if we aren't doing anything else I'll go play a game.

                And as for communication it's challenging when you don't speak the same language. Lol. I've always believed that 90% of all communication is non verbal. And when it comes to dating someone who doesn't speak English we always got along very well and still do.

                But I have recognized that she did pretend to be interested in gaming/tech when dating and for a while after we got married. Was after getting all the crap done for immigration that she stopped caring about tech and games. And I recognize that.

                In the year and a half we've been together I can understand Portuguese semi well and she's gotten much better with English. It's only when talking with either very important things or odd conversations we have to use a translator.

                But I'd have to be in dental or stupid to ignore the possibility that she's only using me to become a us citizen.

                Immigration takes 3 years to complete. I really hope that isn't the case but it's still a possibility.

                This is kind of a lot to presage from this seriously minute look into their lives. I get the same impression, but it's important to be aware of when we're stereotyping and making grand sweeping assumptions based on very little information. We have no idea what the rest of their relationship is like.

          I ordered my wife a Steam Deck for Christmas. Ten years ago we used to play Left 4 Dead together on our college laptops. We had a blast playing L4D again last weekend! Really cool that our old steam libraries have been revived by this handheld.

          That said, I would consider my wife a gamer. She loves RPGs like Mass Effect/Witcher and indie/farming-type games (she's currently playing Strange Horticulture and Coral Island on the Deck)

I like being able to sit in an arm chair in my nursery room, lay down on my couch anyway I feel at the moment, any orientation, just roll around like a pig in shit while playing my vidya. Its great. I've been playing a lot of cheap indie shit like this one called AFTERBURN which is a super simple little dog fighting game. Using the gyro with it is fucking awesome.

    Can someone spoonfeed me? I've got atelier sophie 2 from https://cs.rin.ru/forum/viewtopic.php?p=1902365#p1902365 and I can't get it to launch. I've tried steam, lutris and different protons but nothing works :/
