I haven’t tried it with “real” games. Loop Hero is basically a turn based Indy so latency isn’t an issue.

I only ever put time into cloud gaming with Bloodborne on PS Now. The connection downgraded a couple of times but it wasn't bad, and definitely possible to complete.

I have been pleased with my steam deck as well. I think it comes to expectations. I have basically just played games that are designed for controllers and verified on steam deck. I think it is great for smaller grab and go games.

I don't think it replaces my Switch or 3DS, but it is a good addition and helps when I want to play Steam but not be on the computer.

What have you been playing on it, anything to note?

Like I said, I like a lot of the smaller games, so I play things like Binding of Isaac, for a couple of lives.. May be 5 minutes, may be an hour. Vampire Survivors, Super Hexagon, Rogue Legacy 2, Slay the Spire. I also have Hero Siege, Hammerwatch, FTL, Enter the Gungeon and Dead Cells which I expect to play well.

As far as bigger games I have played on there, have been Stray and Flower. Flower seemed to chug a little bit, so not sure if it was steam deck, or the game, but Stray appears to play flawlessly.

This is me. Every night it comes to work with me. Every night i opt to read a book instead in my free time and have no idea why that is. Been that way basically since a month after i got the thing.

Nothing wrong with reading a book instead. I am eagerly waiting a big to release this summer and I expect I won't be gaming on anything until I finish it.

I am looking forward to play the new Warhammer 40K FPS "Boltgun" when it releases in May on steam. It's basically an homage to 90s fps like Doom, etc. Also has a nice old school Warhammer 40k going as well.

Also humble bundle great capcom deal
Neat game. Currently listed as unsupported on Deck, but I haven't actually tested it.

Edit: Seems to work fine?

Proton seems to be getting better. I'm testing out some games on an old Dell convertible with a Pentium N3710 (Intel HD 405 graphics) and I was surprised to find that it actually works, with support for Vulkan 1.0.

Through proton, Doom 3 runs at 27 fps medium settings, compared to 32 fps with the same settings in the dhewm3 source port.

Tried the Robocop: Rogue City Demo on the Steamdeck. Runs surprisingly well and really looks great too.

Pretty fun nostalgia trip. Interesting take on an FPS too. It’s old school but you’re basically a tank lol.

So it's just the screen and extra storage?

Also 20% larger battery and faster WiFi I think.

512gb for 549 is cool tho, as IIRC that’s what I paid for the 256gb.

I’ll be interested to see when the first performance upgrade hits - tho I imagine it will awhile before that happens.
