Four nerds talk about Steam Deck, Valve, Linux and more

By - | Views: 13,930

I had the absolute pleasure of a very long and relaxed chat with some other Linux content creators: Nick from The Linux Experiment, Jason from Forbes / Linux For Everyone and Gardiner Bryant. Talking through various points including Linux, Valve, Steam, Steam Machines, Steam Deck and more.

First up, a short teaser clip on the Steam Machines and what happened:

As a companion clip, there's also the complete opposite that I thought would be good to show next to this on how the Steam Deck has changed our gaming because the experience is just so different:

Finally, you will want to grab a drink and snack for this one, as here's Jason's edit of the full thing. One key point is that Jason was recording, and doing everything directly from his Steam Deck which overall worked pretty well.

Strap yourself in, it's a bit of a ride:

If you prefer podcast form, Jason has you covered too.

Great collab, warts and all. :)
Impressive that the Deck managed this recording, even though there are small glitches and the video drops out a bit there around 1:38:00. Looking forward to the follow up, maybe Xmas special?

Many of the optimizations are specific to AMD ACO vulkan implementation.

This is your job now, Liam! You must do more podcasts!
Seriously, your input is very valuable and your podcasts have been quite rare.

Glad to see Gardiner do a little bit of re-branding. I think calling oneself "The" Linux Gamer is a little bit too much.

Thanks for the kind words, we have all said we would like to do it again but it won't be too often :)
