Having spent about a dozen hours with One Piece Odyssey on Steam Deck (on the default Proton version), I will be surprised if it isn’t Steam Deck Verified by Valve in the near future or when they get around to testing it.
People playing more games probably has to do with the sleep feature mentioned in Momo's post, I mean you can alt-tab and stuff on PC too but kinda not really the same if you have to use your PC for work, or need to do something else, AAA games generally have a lot of cutscenes and other junk, you can just put it on sleep in the middle of them instead of having to wait, and can do them later, so there's the feeling that you need less commitment playing on the deck and can just pick it up whenever.I'm thinking about getting one of these. Main reasons are:
1. testimonials where people say they have been playing way more games than they would without it
I don't have a real use case for needing a handheld system specifically. But I do have a big backlog and games I love that I'd like to play again, and so on. If the form factor of the Deck helps me play more, it would be worth it. So, for those who play more on the Deck, why? What makes it more motivating/enjoyable to play on the Deck than to use your desktop? I really like builder and factory games, but it seems like not having the big desktop monitor for those kinds of games might not be ideal? Also, a large proportion of my game library is unsupported (Dark Souls, really?). But enough of it is Verified/Playable, and I don't mind tinkering.
I'm concerned about its size. I have a Switch for Nintendo exclusives, and If just hold it with the joycons and play, I'm guaranteed to get wrist pain. So, I use my favorite old 8bitdo SN30 controller with it. I also use a small fold-out stand for the Switch, so I don't have to balance it awkwardly on whatever's available. So I'd probably like to play the Deck like this as well. If it doesn't fit in the Switch stand, I guess I could get the dock?
You can create settings preset for each game, you know that right? So that when you launch P3P it will automatically set TDP to 5 Watts, and when you run P5 it will switch to 10 Watts.I was wondering why I was getting such bad battery life on Persona 3 so I checked my TDP.
I completely forgot I set it to 10 to make Persona 5 run at stable 60fps heh.
Now setting it down to 4 or 5 makes P3 run like butter. Basically 6+hrs of battey life
Yea I know but I just keep it a default. I mostly play indies, long jrpgs or old games that don't really need tweaking. But I played P5R for over 150hrs over the past 3 months so I just tuned out and never even messed with any of the system settings lol.You can create settings preset for each game, you know that right?

that was quick (also complained about R2 and the fan in the support ticket )i just contacted the support for RMA (for the nonworking r4)
I dont really use the button so its not problem with my decking at all , but iw ill be busy in next few weeks aynway and still got Win3 for my handheld needs so not that much of an issue to be without it for some time
=> so better safe than sorry , especially when my warranty runs out in march.
The whole Trine series looks absolutely beautiful! Bit of a shame the story of Trine 3 remains unfinished – and that game was a bit of a missed opportunity anyway... they couldve made a fantastic 3D platformer but the fixed camera they had really limited it.Trine 4 looks good, the art in these games is always so underrated.
PossiblyPudding really enjoyed it too!Finished Little Noah, was a fun game, not as long / dynamic as something like Hades but still gave me like 10hours of entertainment, there are other modes that unlocked but not really going to do them. It's a game that's fun to pick up and play and can resume midway through on the deck without quitting the game.
Don't hesitate to try any not verified games. I can count the games I could not get running on one hand.I haven't looked through the admittedly 40 pages of content of this thread yet because I had to originally cancel my original pre-order of a steam deck but I just got one for my birthday because of my family and I just wanted to throw out that I'm surprised by the amount of old games I have in my library that are fully verified on the steam deck.
Stuff from 2010 or older or even delisted games are fully verified and I was just kind of like "Oh that's neat"
That is a nice setup. I'm heading to Japan soon and was looking for portable monitors and came across these https://www.nreal.ai/air/ (can't get any more portable than glasses). I've been spending most of my time playing while wearing these and it's nice. Also I prefer the displays on the glasses (turns out is is an OLED display) to the steam deck display.
