  1. Yeah, that's one of the reasons why it got mixed results. Other manufacturers have similar options ranging from $30 till $50, while this one is clocking in $90. I think that Apple's monitor stand is Valve's steam deck dock - just here to look pretty and make money.
  2. So, I'm going through the various publishers and I'm seeing a trend of extremely mixed results for the official Steam Deck docking station. Some outlets praise it for its design and integration, others blame the price and (lack of) features or power. Dexterto wrote: "We’re not upset with our purchase of the Steam Deck Dock. It’s a clean-cut and totally viable USB-C dock. However, there’s just this lingering feeling that it doesn’t bring enough to the table that any other dock available on Amazon could do. Other than the need to keep things aesthetically pleasing, that is." And they gave it a 6/10, you can read the review here. Phoronix wrote: "If you can afford it, great, otherwise there are plenty of other Linux compatible USB-C hubs/docks/adapters on the market depending upon your needs." No score was given, but they have some nice photos and an overall positive score. You can read more in their review. Esportsheadlines.com wrote: "If you can afford it, the official Steam Deck Dock is certainly a good investment. It's not only well integrated in to the SteamOS itself, but also features all the ports one would need for a pleasant couch gaming session." From what I can tell it's quite a high number, 9 out of 10. Here's their review. TheVerge wrote: Ah, well.. I don't know what they wrote tbh. They did an extremely poor review focusing on what the dock can't do, instead on what it can, so I have no clue if it's a good source or not. This is your standard Verge I guess, like Unboxing Therapy. They always want to have their nose in everything, even if they aren't capable of reviewing it. It's here. From what I can tell by default is that Apple's monitor stand is Valve's docking station. It's an overpriced piece of tech that fits the device well and does the job, but its role is to bring in more money, and there are several cheaper alternatives out there. Luckily Valve doesn't bother too much with competition and they actually welcome it, so that's good. We would just need a docking station that can be integrated with Linux as well as the steam deck dock can. Valve Official Steam Deck Dock.mp4
  3. Ah, you reminded me of that night I spilled Red Bull over it 😄 If you think coffee is bad, imagine a sugary drink being all over your Logitech G19 keyboard. And back then those things were frikin expensive!
  4. Hmm, it's actually interesting for me to learn about this game, as I never heard of it. 😁 just read stuff on wikipedia and some other sites. this was from 1992? boy that was older than me by slightly I think. 🤣 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alone_in_the_Dark also the original is on steam too. but I think I'll go wait to see if this remake will actually be very good. https://store.steampowered.com/app/548090/Alone_in_the_Dark_1/ EDIT: it's actually interesting to see that the trilogy of alone in the dark is actually available on GOG for just about $1.49 🤔 https://www.gog.com/en/game/alone_in_the_dark
  5. I see, you're on to a new phase then... true, managing games are built to... well... manage stuff, and that can feel like work, or even is a chore depending on the perspective. Playing stuff in pure sandbox mode? That feels like getting some relaxed creative juices flowing, or oddly like Lego. 😁 just having fun doing stuff. For me, Lego was a large part of my childhood, so even now, Minecraft has that forever appeal of "virtual Lego" for me. 😀 So I don't care about that aspect of Hi-res graphics of Minecraft. Though, shader packs and animated textures are more fun to play with if the PC can handle it. 😁 also reminds me of a friend who once commented that Minecraft has no appeal to him at all because of the simple graphics. Although I do appreciate great HD graphics on other games too, like all the stuff that's coming out as Unreal Engine 5 demos are very cool. 😎
  6. Weird, this oddly reminds me of tinnitus, the way you describe it. 😅 also, does that mean you play as an in game vampire? 😁 Just kidding.
  7. I never owned a console, but I've played many games on PS2 with my friends... so there goes my choice. 😂 (the only one in fact 🤣)
  8. This is exactly my same reasoning lol. 🤣 though I use the orange night filter settings when browsing walls of text on the internet at night, but if I'm gaming? well... I'd rather not. but if I had to, I'd rather buy those yellow Esport glasses. 😎
  9. lol, virtually "endless" potential if you ask me. 🤣 after all, we're dealing with the endless ,multiverse here. 😁 seeing that it's rick and morty. also since adventure time has had a few good games too, rick and morty has the potential too.
  10. Hmmmm, reminds me of this survival sort of game, that was built as an educational game to be sold initially to schools, have you heard of "ECO"? It might be the sort of game that you might like, since it's technically sort of peaceful, and can play with multiplayer on public or private servers. It's a sort of like Minecraft, but with economy features, and a meteor will destroy the world if the players don't stop it. to get the gist of it, just search for a youtuber that has a fast recap video about their world from start to endgame. There are plenty. 😀 https://store.steampowered.com/app/382310/Eco/ Hmmm, do you play Minecraft? I remember seeing a modpack about dinosaurs a while back, that could be literally sandboxed mode too. 😁
  11. I'd have to say PC as well... though my opinion on phone gaming is sort of neutral... there are gems to play here and there, but you'd be better off finding a reputable mobile game reviewer on YouTube, than trying out games the algo throws at you when you browse game stores... (although I do that and don't actually take my advice lol. 😅) it also depends on the genre (the persona in question) would want to play. For me, I actually keep hunting for decent text based games on the Google Play Store, and I've found a few that are decent, on the level of an interactive MUD. something that plays like a free Ebook or the likes. I'm weird like that. 😁 Actually, @Shagger went and ripped into the topic with all his fury, lol. nuff said vibes. 🤣
  12. Just the other day I was waiting for this to hit a billion views, and I listened to it a few times. 😁 now it's over a billion. time for more feels. 😎
  13. Huh, well, I guess I don't have much of a strong opinion on the monarchs of the U.K., may she rest in peace though. I'd say I'm neutral at best. 😁 but.... this is a funny picture though. 🤡🤣

    1 word song titles

    well, it's just 2 after all... maybe... both songs could've been open in 2 tabs, but oh well.
  15. Very nice song, I think I actually heard this before... Imma add this to my playlists. 😋 long ago I tried to learn mandarin... then gave up... I only got so far as the numbers 1-10. 🤣 and stuff like, pu-yao (don't?), and he-sui(drink?).
