    Default Steam Deck

    I reserved the 512 GB model yesterday, what about you?

    I read about it a bit. Sounds similar to the Nvidia Shield

    Probably a great device. Had I not just recently purchased a laptop, I'd be all over it. Hope they keep making it - the PC is ascendant as a gaming platform, and has been for 20 years...this just proves it is king.

    I bought Bravely Default 2 for Switch almost a week ago, and then I found out it's coming to steam just a couple of hours ago.

    I pre-ordered bout a month or so ago because it sounded exciting and novel enough. I don't have a laptop at this time and this sounded like a great inbetweener.

    While I do have a gaming laptop (not super powerful but its Ryzen 5 with GeForce card does a decent job. It can play Witcher 3 decently and can also handle Original Xbox emulation), I sometimes have a really hard time separating the "work" concept from it as my job is keeping such machines running. I'm on them all the dang time that when I feel like gaming, it's an internal struggle to want to hop back ONTO a PC. Sometimes I can, sometimes I can't. I know, a split gaming personality.

    I'm half wondering if the Steam Deck will give me the best of both worlds-the console feel but with the selection of a PC? Most of my gaming is portable now as it's hard to game at home (though I could be doing so right now from my basement domain while the kids and wife watch "Ballykissangel" on Britbox, but I decided to drop a line with you folks instead). It would be nice to just fire up the Deck and play say Witcher 3 but not have any of the distractions of a computer, especially when I'm talking a lunch break at work. I sometimes use my gaming laptop as my "work laptop" for my smaller clients, so there's always a chance a work email pops up to crush the immersion. Or I could be seeing it as something new and shiny. But to play my Steam games and maybe, gasp, decent emulation?

    Choices....

    You can also have epic games store, GOG galaxy, Origin and battle.net on it, as well.
