“Welcome to Nintendo Voice Chat! This week Casey DeFreitas is joined by Brian Altano, Tom Marks, and Mitchell Saltzman to talk about Valve’s new handheld gaming system, the Steam Deck, and how it compares to the Nintendo Switch. And, Tom got to go hands-on with the new Nintendo Switch OLED model, and he shares his thoughts on the new and improved screen. Plus, Skyward Sword HD launches this week, and the panel talks about impressions of Nintendo’s latest HD remaster.”
Steam Deck – The future of Linux gaming has never looked brighter
I’m kind of in the same boat…I’d love to have one, but I don’t even pick up my old hand held units often.
That’s a lot of money to be spending…on something I’m not sure I’ll get a lot of use out of…Yet, having a genuine tiny PC and being able to fiddle around with my Steam account and games is attractive…
Though, the one game I’m deep, deep, deep into [Fire Pro Wrestling World] is notorious for having it’s save file corrupted in the cloud…which, given the way the game functions, is essentially a death sentence for my own FPW projects…should I ever open the door to allowing cloud saves, and one gets corrupted.
Valve Announces Their Own Switch Pro
“Today Valve announced a new system called the Steam Deck. This device is a hybrid model similar to the Switch that will also have a dock for connecting to a TV. The Steam Deck is much more powerful than the Switch leading to comparisons of not just the Switch but also the long rumored Switch Pro.”
We NEED To Talk About Valve’s New STEAM DECK…
“Another week, another console. While one whelmed, this foray by Valve has me pumped! It answers the bell to many things we have wanted in handheld gaming, but for me it’s a lot of the aspects outside of the SteamOS that have me excited. Retro games, xCloud streaming, and SKYRIM MODS IN BED! Think of the possibilities!”
