I was a bit early but does seem a new controller is coming. Then again, patents doesn't mean it will come to fruition.

Microsoft Patent Shows Xbox Controller with LCD Display


So, this is their WiiU then?

Steam prices this week are lower than a the autumn sale on quite a few games. Glad I waited.

I own several North Bayou mounts and they are excellent for their price. They do have some wobble, but typically only when mounted to a wobbly desk with a larger monitor. There is zero chance I would ever buy an Ergo with the NB price/performance.


Sure. I 100% understand where you're coming from. I upgraded to a single amazonbasics Ergo when they were on sale, previously using a North Bayou for my big TV/Monitor but it couldn't handle the weight. This isn't that much more than a NB dual and honestly I wouldn't have believed there would be Any justification for paying the extra amount until I opened the box and set it up.

The amazon basics "lift engine" (rebranded ergotron) dual monitor desk mount is on sale for $55 over at amazon --50% off.

The difference between an ergotron and the myriad of cheaper stands that I now have stored in my basement is significant.

That's a bummer. Have had my eye on it for a sale but may pick it up at the $20 price to check it out.


Fuser looks very disappointing to me. To follow up one of the most fun couch co-op franchises *ever* with this single player DJ thing? ... oh, or collaborative looping tracks? What is this? No thank you.

For those that switched out the steam deck SSD - didn't valve warn against this? I know they said it was physically possible but I remember the main designer saying pretty clearly "don't do this"

No. They said don't upgrade to a larger *physical* size (2242, 2280) ssd that draws more power or generates more heat. The stock drives are 2230 in size. The last two digits are the length in mm, fyi.

They also separately warned that you might compromise structural integrity if you open it for any reason, because the screws holes are plastic and it's possible to cross thread and mess up their grip. So, be careful when reassembling.

Hot Wheels Unleashed, too? Glad that person never replied to sell me their extra humble key now. Everything is coming up Milhouse!

This isn't a complaint about the Steam Deck or the Switch, but I picked up my V1 Switch the other day for the first time since getting my Steam Deck and I was amazed at how small and light it was. I love my Steam Deck, but it really is amazing what Nintendo got into that system, how portable it is, and how well it still works after this many years.


This isn't reddit. You can say something positive about a different handheld without being surrounded by torches and pitchforks.

For sure battery life, size, and weight are amazing on the switch. Still can't clear out my PC backlog on it, though :)

This is going to sound lame. But I would probably recommend you call whatever contact info is provided for the extended warranty you purchased. Tell them the manufacturer says the cooler is out of warranty and they need to cover it.


100% this.

Fanatical.

Garfield Kart: Furious Racing is FREE, so go get it:

They also have a $1 bundle that contains Battle of Polytopia and all of the DLC. I cannot recommend that game highly enough.

Anyone seen or heard of any deals for steam credit? Or is my best bet to check dollar general/family dollar in a few days?


Target Buy 1 get 1 at 15% off, so 7.5% off or 12% if you have a red card.


In store only and when I went yesterday the store had no cards. If you're going there just for the cards you might waste more in gas than you'd save

I don’t use Instagram but I could see it being the place to go for following famous peeps considering many of them already do use it a lot.

Gaming folks could post screenshots instead of selfies.

Alright, now that I’m thinking about this, I have no clue, lol.


I hear Instagram has a big push to promote video clips instead of images. Trying to compete with tik tok and snap chat I guess?

Back in my day we had BBSes and we were just fine until that new fangled fidonet went and made it all weird!

I appreciate the offer, i really do (also the first time anyone has offered something in return). I agree that the game lloks fin and right up my alley, but it doesn't say SteamDeck (verified or playable).

I play on my deck. Zero fiddling required. Just works. I'll pm you the code now. :)
