This new device is the first in a new series of handheld PC from Valve.

Back in May 2021, a rumor came out suggesting that Valve was working on a new handheld PC device called the SteamPal. While that is partially true, the one thing that didn't stick through to the end was the name. These devices are officially called Steam Deck and they start at a pretty affordable $399 (USD) MSRP.

Valve says that Steam Deck is a "powerful all-in-one portable PC." It has a...
 

Japanese Talent Agency to Blame for Lack of Judgment on PC

A little while later, Sega announced a sequel to Judgment called Lost Judgment. This too was also planned for most platforms but...

    New Oculus Quest 2 Model Announced

    Sales of the current model are paused while Facebook readies the new model.

    There have been some rumors swirling around for a bit that Facebook was going to announce some new VR hardware soon. And while that rumor is true, this probably isn't the hardware announcement some fans may have wanted.

  • BioWare Shares Interesting Details About Player Choices via Mass Effect Legendary Edition Infographic

    Apparently, 6% of players did not have Wrex survive on Virmire. These people are monsters.

    BioWare and EA have shared a new infographic for Mass Effect Legendary Edition. Players seemed to again trend towards the male version of Shepard, with only 32% of people picking the far superior FemShep. Once again, just as the case was with the game's original release, players also overwhelmingly chose to play as the super boring Soldier class above all others.

    Discord Now Has Threaded Conversations

    This is apparently a big deal because they sent out a press release.

    We typically never get any new emails about what Discord is doing. That all changed today when they sent me a press release talking about their new Threads system for conversations. So I'm going to assume here that these Threads are a pretty big deal if they're actually sending out press releases concerning their updates now.

    What are Threads? Threads are a way to split off a topic of conversation into...

    How to Find the Best Portable Gaming Screen?

    Gaming had come a long way since it was exclusively about gaming consoles, big screens, and optimized systems.

Developers are working overtime to find new ways to optimize these features, and that's why we now have an array of portable gaming screens that do way more than anticipated. Mobile gaming screens come in different shapes,...

    Obviously, some people took this to mean that the Steam Deck would only run games at a 30FPS cap. Some have even begun to doubt the...
