  1. I don't think so. The spec for the Deck just lists USB C.
  2. I don't see why Valve would enter the NUC market and start making mini-pcs. It's not like the emerging handheld market where the big players are still relatively small companies who use platforms like Indiegogo when launching hardware. All the big PC manufacturers have some form of mini PCs. The big drawback to them right now is that AMDs current APUs are Vega based and Intels integrated graphics are still a bit lacking but the Iris Xe stuff is already a lot better than most people realise. Intels NUC compute unit stuff sounds an awful lot like what you want Valve to do.
  3. It's not a native experience but my most recent impressions of PC gaming have came through using Geforce Now. I loaded up Saints Row IV and for whatever reason the game defaulted to low settings. It was only a small thing to go into settings and turn things up to High/Ultra (Saints Row seems like the sort of game where they might have put a funny name on their best mode, I can't remember). King of Fighters 12 recognized my fightpad but instead of A showing up as A it was listed as Button 5 in the menus. It's all minor stuff in the grand scheme of things but PC gaming still has that little extra layer of fuckery compared to consoles. I might be singing a different tune entirely in six weeks when my "gaming" laptop shows up.
  4. I'm sure that once they get a release date locked down that the hype machine will kick off in a big way. Its just a bit strange that this will be the Halo game that sets franchise records for the most people to play it at launch but its not going to be a Halo 2 or 3 level event.
  5. I wonder how long those people stay interested once people accept that this is still a PC at the end of the day? I'm fairly sure that the OS and frontend will be slick but its not going to be console level simplicity.

  7. https://www.videogameschronicle.com/news/steam-deck-owners-can-upgrade-its-ssd-even-in-the-cheapest-model/amp/?__twitter_impression=true It linked to a story that the SSD can be upgraded but it's not recommended.
  8. That's all they've shown so far alright. It's probably a safe bet that they are working on a follow up to the warzone mode in Halo 5 but they haven't shown it yet because it won't be there at launch. The build up to this game feels very strange. It doesn't seem like the release is going to get even close to being an event the same way the Halo 3 launch was but it's practically guaranteed that way more people will play this when it launches because of Gamepass, PC availability and the free multiplayer element.
  9. Not sure if that's been mentioned in here.
  10. For a lot of people there isn't any major downside to getting a pre-order in now. For €4 you'll have a place reserved in the queue. If it turns out to be a lemon then you can cancel it easily and not be out of pocket. If it turns out to be awesome then you'll at least know roughly when you can expect to get one instead of a free for all like the Series X and PS5 have been for the past eight months.
  11. After how difficult getting a PS5 or Series X turned out to be I'm not surprised people are trying to secure their place in the queue for one of these. Theres very little downside to getting on the waiting list at least.

  13. I understand that and in fairness I probably picked the wrong post to respond to when I voiced my concerns. It looks like a very capable device and I'll probably try to get on the waiting list for one but I think some people saw the words "handheld gaming PC" and jumped to some very unrealistic conclusions about just how powerful it is.
  14. I'd take that with a pinch of salt. Looking at the specs it seems like it a touch less than half as powerful as an Xbox Series S, how does the Series S optimised version of Fallen Order run compared to the PC version?
  15. I'm a few hours into this now. Should I be save scumming this in on order to get a good ending? I vaguely remember the DS Castlevania games being easy enough to get the bad ending in but I can't remember how avoidable they were.
