Somehow we managed to hit every single news story we’d planned on this episode and that’s pretty surprising since we mostly don’t stick to that with how far off track we get. Not something we mind, really.
I do realize, however, that given we did that, it makes writing these a bit tough since we don’t stay on a topic too long.
I decided to pass on getting the Steam Deck. My invite has expired by the time you read this. As said in the show, I love the idea of it. I love what it does and I’m even more in love with what it has the potential to become. And that…is what I’m waiting for. I understand that with all things PC related, waiting is somewhat futile. There will forever and always be something better not too far down the road so if there’s a Version 2 of this thing, that’s likely when I’ll jump on. As it stands now the thing isn’t broken, but I feel like there’s a lot of room for improvement with another iteration of the device.
The Nintendo Switch is the closest comparison I can make to owning a portable gaming system and…I just don’t use it. Granted, my PC library far outshines my Switch library and likely always will. Not to mention the Steam Deck will most likely have massive backwards compatibility, right? I mean, it’s a PC. Anyway, I’ll wait for the next version or get one used with a steep discount if I’m unable to wait or they just never make one (jury’s still out on that one with their hardware history).
Speaking of a company making a follow up product…Ubisoft it’s been 3,245 days since the last Splinter Cell game (non-animated series or guest spot in another game franchise, remake, or VR exclusive).
