    Got mine today. I really want to enjoy an arpg on it so I've been trying some of the ones I already own and played. Ran Torchlight 2 but the official controls were really goofy and the performance was surprisingly underwhelming since the deck runs more demanding games better. Is Grim Dawn's controller control scheme good? I also want to try Titan Quest (as I like it more than Grim Dawn) but I haven't yet since it's not verified.
    Would really love to get Diablo 1 with devilutionx running. I have the gog version but I don't have a clue as to how I'm supposed to get devilutionx working on Linux.

    One for the linuxfags (probably I'm not sure) I noticed playing the simpsons hit and run that the timestamps on game saves were off by two hours. Like it's 5:20pm here, but if I saved my game it would read 7:20pm. I thought it was just that game but I'm getting the same thing now in GTA3. I know it's not an issue, but is there any reason for that? Yeah the steam deck itself is showing the right time.

        How's the battery in FO4? I've been playing a little bit and I get around 2 hours on all low settings, but I also have to play at 60fps/hz because lowering it to 40 introduces a disgusting amount of input latency.

          no idea, only played in bed. considering how baltimore easily chuggs into 40s unthrottled its gonna be the absolute minimal battery time.
          input latency hardly matters if you do the usual vats build. do the vats cost -10% legendary mods for power armor, and the torso(?) mod for ap regen with movement - with a vats legendary gun you get like 16 shots and refill ap in about 3-4 seconds.
