SC Controller, the UI and driver for the Steam Controller has new releases out

MohandevirCan't remember... Does the SC Controller turns itself off when we launch Steam? I think it was on the todo list, but I lost track.

That's the kernel driver you're thinking of (to give Steam Controller K&M support without any software running), and it turns itself off if it detects something else trying to access the Steam Controller.

With SC Controller enabled before launching Steam, SC Controller should keep control of device

Update: I stand corrected ↓

Remember the SMACH Z handheld? It's apparently going to be at E3 this year

EikeYeah, I understand, not in the bus, but still... IMHO, it's way too much money to play what you can play elsewhere as well. While many people say Zelda alone is worth the price of the Switch.

I don't think Smach Z will be the hit some people are hoping for. It's too expensive and as many of you hint at, the selling point is hard to get.

Personally, when smartphones became a thing, I was hoping for mini-computers. Instead what we got was severely limited, by comparison. Smach Z (and others) are a step in the right direction, IMHO

EikeTheir answer is "Zelda".
But what's Smach Z's answer...?

Every PC game

I have backed this project. I also own a GPD Win 2 (which is a competitor). It's a complete joy to have a full-blown computer in handheld format

My main gripe is with the small keyboard (or lack thereof even with the Smach Z) for when you actually want to use it as a computer, although it's understandable why

TheRiddickLooks like Civilization and Age of Empires had a baby?

Out of the two, it's a lot closer to Age of Empires. But it does have some Civ features

Epic Games have confirmed a Linux version of their store is not on the roadmap

Vaguely mentioning "other open platforms" was them unwilling to commit to anything.
But as mentioned in the article, if Linux isn't even on the roadmap, what other platforms are there?

Vulkanize all things

I'm looking forward to this being ready for use

Valve have adjusted their revenue share for bigger titles on Steam

MayeulCWhat would be interesting for them is to take a (slightly) lesser cut if the game is cross-platform. Everyone would be happy about this, I think, especially bean counters

This could also be used as an argument to offset some of the extra costs associated with supporting another platform

KimyrielleThe gaming industry in general seems to be not after longevity anyway. It all seems to be about building up a popular IP to make yourself interesting for a takeover by Big Business. Get rich quick. Leave. Bioware, Maxis, Westwood, Mojang, now Obsidian and inXile...the list is endless and never stops growing. None of these studios had a urgent reason to sell out, and they still did. Seriously, are medium sized studios even interested at all in staying in the business?

At least with respects to Obsidian, my understanding was that they were, and have been having, financial difficulties.
Their main argument for selling out was exactly not to have to worry about this anymore.

Choosing Microsoft was a bummer though

Valve may be adding support for using compatibility tools for playing games on different operating systems

This is something I've been expecting (although not so soon).
I do hope it's true
