Some fresh Steam Deck Verified games to jump into for December 13th

By - | Views: 52,424

As time ticks on, more and more games go through Steam Deck Verified to check compatibility. Here's a fresh list of games to check out to stock up for the Winter.

For all the titles in this list they are fully steam deck verified Steam Deck Verified, so they will be click and play. No compatibility options needed, just dive right in!

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition

This one needs absolutely no introduction right? You all know Skyrim. The big open-world RPG from Bethesda Game Studios that recently had an update to improve the out of the box experience on Steam Deck.

Golf With Your Friends (Linux Native)

"Why have friends if not to play Golf... With Your Friends! Nothing is out of bounds as you take on courses filled with fast paced, exciting, simultaneous mini golf for up to 12 players!"

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2

"Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 lets you duke it out with the biggest and best fighting character roster yet! Choose your favorite brawlers, master their unique move sets, and use all-new powerful Supers to land the finishing blow with friends or across a unique, roguelike player campaign!"

Primal Carnage: Extinction

"Hunt humans, slay dinosaurs. It's chaotic prehistoric PvP, make your choice. Think fast, or you're extinct!"

Terraformers (Linux Native)

"Terraform Mars in this turn-based colony builder and resource management game with roguelike elements. Explore the planet, develop spectacular cities, spread life and turn the Red Planet into a green one!"

Valfaris: Mecha Therion

"Therion returns as the hunt for Lord Vroll continues. Pilot an advanced machine of death and destruction in this explosive 2.5D side-scrolling shoot ‘em up, and sequel to the critically acclaimed Valfaris. Strap in and unleash mecha hell!"

Tormented Souls

"Classic survival horror is back! Inspired by the original Resident Evil and Alone in the Dark series, Tormented Souls modernises with a fresh twist on the fixed perspective adventure - as Caroline Walker investigates the mysterious disappearance of twin girls in a terrifying mansion-turned-hospital."

What have you been playing recently? I actually finally decided to jump into the first Alan Wake, and I have absolutely no idea what's going on but the story seems pretty interesting! Can't wait to put some more hours into it to see what happens and so far it works beautifully on Steam Deck (it's also Steam Deck Verified).

Terraformers is Verified now? Cool!
I'll have to play it again soon then. Last time I tried it it was already working well enough, but sometimes one still needed to use the touch screen, as some gamepad bindings weren't set up correctly back then yet. I guess that's fixed now?

Golf With Your Friends is one of those games where is funnier try to screw up your friends than try to win, I love it. And if you are on sweaty mode you can try to one shot to the green of a different hole, as Liam said, there are no bounds, literally.

This week so far, it's been;

A game that a relative and I used to play when I visited their place, B.C. Bill (Commodore 64 version) (Proton), which I was delighted to find had been re-released in emulator-wrapped form on Steam this year.

Bomberman 64: The Second Attack! (Nintendo 64), via RetroDECK, a fun-but-flawed game which was criminally overlooked in its day, which nonetheless made an enormous contribution to the series' worldbuilding and lore.

The always-relaxing Placid Plastic Duck Simulator (Proton), this time in the winter-themed "Quacking the Ice" pool, which has some exclusive ducks; I'm eagerly awaiting the inevitable Christmas event, which should bring in some festive ones, too.

Super Bomberman R 2 (Proton), in which I'm currently enjoying the utterly chaotic 16-player Standard battle-mode, as it works around a current issue with the AI-players being as dumb as a stump by making up for it with complete madness!

And last but not least, Zool Redimensioned (Proton), which really is an excellent remake/retelling of the first game; I'm still hoping that they'll make good on this game's hint at a Zool 3, sometime soon!

Terraformers is a little hard to read at 800p on the Deck (there's only so small you can shrink things without losing detail), so I maybe wouldn't recommend it as a first experience, but if you know your way around the game already it's certainly a good way to play it on the go.

And Golf With Your Friends is a blast. A friend and I have tons of fun just enabling the ability to jump, and trying to complete courses in non-intended ways with it.
