A round-up of our Steam Deck content — the videos keep coming

By - | Views: 16,428

Since news moves fast, here's a chance for you to grab a breather and get a look at my ongoing Steam Deck content. Here's what has been shown off so far.

Just a few of the main non-news articles done (with plenty more planned!):

Additionally, I've also been doing numerous YouTube videos, which seem to have been quite a hit. Some were done as a result of requests from the community, like showing off Stellaris while also using the Steam Deck magnifier to show you how well it works:

A list of the current videos done (find them in the Steam Deck YouTube list):

Welcome to the Steam Deck (256GB model)

Steam Deck - Developer Interviews

Cyberpunk 2077 - Steam Deck Benchmark

Elden Ring - Steam Deck initial testing

Installing Discord on the Steam Deck

Epic Games Store on the Steam Deck

Proton Experimental, bleeding-edge Beta - Steam Deck (HOWTO)

Prodeus - Steam Deck gameplay

Steam Deck - Touchscreen testing

Steam Deck - Total War: WARHAMMER II - Battle Benchmarks

Steam Deck - Slay the Spire

Steam Deck - Crusader Kings 3

Steam Deck - Valheim

Steam Deck - setup Morrowind, Warzone 2100 and X-COM with Luxtorpeda

Steam Deck - A little GZDoom, Blade of Agony how-to

This next one will raise some eyebrows. It's not in any way confirmed official yet but it does work on Linux / Proton and Steam Deck. We reached out to Valve about it, so far no reply. EA / Respawn have also said nothing. Keep that in mind, so Apex Legends works but seemingly everyone is being silent on an announcement.

And finally, Dying Light 2 is on Deck:

If there is something specific you want me to take a look at, be sure to comment away.

On top of that don't forget to follow on Twitch, where regular direct-capture livestreams have been happening.

Quoting: eldarionOnly time will tell. It's just that recently the news here looked too much as a Valve PR satalite then a Linux gaming news site. More about steam deck itself and less about actual games.
Take heart, then, because the Deck just launched, so this is the biggest it will ever be and the highest concentration of articles you'll ever see about it. As more and more people actually get their hands on one the cachet of exclusivity will wear off, and apart from some big articles I foresee in the future along the lines of "Epic Games caves and ports Fortnite to Linux due to demand from millions of Deck owners" it'll gradually fade into the background fabric of people's lives as everyone who wants one just…has one.
Exactly that. Over time it will slot into things alongside everything else as normal.

Quoting: eldarionI really hope this fever will pass (no offense to the Steam Deckers out there).
I hope it doesn't. It's one of the biggest things to ever help Linux gaming as a whole, and any games I write about would work on a Linux desktop too.

Don't you think a successful dedicated gaming device running Linux and hundreds, soon thousands of games verified to run on Linux and what most probably will be number one on many game of the years lists running on Linux at least as good as (supposedly better than) on Windows is like medium important for the topic at hand, "gaming on Linux"?

Strange conclusion you made based on what I said. I fail to see where I said it as not important.

You didn't say it outright. But that was strongly implied in your criticism that there were too many Deck articles. Or rather "games for Deck" articles. Honestly, I don't even know what you meant when you suggested you wanted more Deck articles, but less games articles? It's a console for playing games, and doesn't have perfect compatibility - of course the bulk of the articles is about games. This is a gaming site.

Anyway, I'm enjoying the ride, at least. And judging by the views counts both on here and on Youtube, it seems that there's a decent number of people enjoying it too!

What? I said that? Seriously dude, you really should try to breathe deeply and read what people say before making assumptions like this one.

What I said was that there are too many PR articles about the console itself (or micro computer with a tiny screen that allows you to play steam games while you shit, if you like) then articles about the actual games. You know, what used to happen before this craziness.

It's obvious that games that work on steam deck also can work on desktop and the contrary could also be true, as long as the game itself supports the steam deck controller. After all, it's just a micro computer with a custom input.

I didn't understand. I still don't honestly. Maybe I need to try to breathe deeply, that'll help.

Perhaps I just don't really know what you mean by PR articles. Public Relations... articles? Like you think this site is over-promoting the Deck somehow? In that case, we'll agree to differ. As I said above, I'm loving all the Deck content. After the failure of the Steam Machines, seeing the Deck off to a flying start is incredibly exciting. It's great (to me) reading about the interface, battery, heat, custom Mangohud, new BPM interface, performance. The games (to me) are less interesting because as long as they nail the controls and compensate text for the tiny screen, it's as you point out - just a handheld PC.
