  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?).
  16. I've seen this circulating, and the question is... why is silent hill 2 getting a remake and not silent hill 1? after all by example, capcom remade Resident Evil 1 first, in chronological (mostly) order. so why SH2? 🤔
  17. what game? A tabletop game? 👀 sounds cool lol. "The adventurer picks up the sock with the name on it and brings it to the dragon to patch it's wound. He notices that the dragon has lit a fire with its breath, so he sort of understands and adds twigs to the fire, it surges up brighter, lighting up the surroundings" "The adventurer now takes a closer look at the dragon's wound, still feeling unsure of himself, but deciding that this tending takes priority, he decides that the sock is not enough for it, so he rips off his longshirt's sleeve to make a bandage for the wound." "the dragon stays still enough for him to do so, and when he finishes he says..." What does he say, and what does he do next... (comment the next scene)
  18. I've never really tried gaming subscriptions out, but I've tried season passes on some games. 😀 Anyway, why do you subscribe to such services? I know there are plenty of benefits or reasons to do so, I'm just curious about your personal opinions. Who knows, one day I might hop on board too somehow 😋 Also, Do you think the subscription you have is worth its price point? You can mention why too. this topic is related to this other topic on here: Also, here are 2 article lists showing most game subscription services including the lesser known ones, asides from the popular ones like Xbox game pass and PS Plus. https://www.cnet.com/tech/gaming/best-game-subscription-services/ https://www.gamingscan.com/best-gaming-subscription-services/
  19. Would playing Minecraft in "peaceful" settings count as the most friendly NPC's? 😅 because basically all the non-hostile mobs like animals and villagers are verrrrry friendly. 😋 haha.
  20. I played some shooting game on roblox called arsenal recently for the heck of it. bit of fun actually, shooting all sorts of weapons in a gun game evolution mode. 😂 https://www.roblox.com/games/286090429/Arsenal
  21. awww, that's a bummer, raft is good, but I mainly watch content creators getting creative on YouTube. Maybe you should try the forest, it has a good story, or maybe rust, since it's a survival multiplayer. 😁
  22. That's actually a good rule of thumb actually, with no shortage of people streaming games and making content for twitch/YouTube? It's better for the consumers and lessens the impulse buyers (though they still exist) 🤣 also, I like some of these YouTubers going: I bought it and played it, so you don't have to (if it's bad) 😉
  23. I LOVE a Gang of CatGirls Rubbing big slippery nipples Fallout mod!
  24. Yeah, it was exactly that. Though I still remember playing the flash version years ago. RIP flash, you helped give birth to many creative works. 😁 Yeah, it's great to see how far they've come from that, also with them as a publisher helping many smaller devs like they once were helps foster more creativity and talent in the industry. 😁 lol, I went looking for where the original flash version could be played, and I found it. quite a bit of nostalgia for my flash games playing days. 😋 here's the remastered version BTW: https://store.steampowered.com/app/368730/No_Time_To_Explain_Remastered/ here's the flash game, it runs on a flash emulator now. good 15 minutes of playing and I found the easter egg again, which to be honest, isn't hidden much. 😝 also looking back, they never changed their logo/mascot, as being honest to their origins. https://www.gamenora.com/game/no-time-to-explain/ About tinyBuild We're an indie game development and publishing company. No Time To Explain is our first game. It came out of a successful Kickstarter and Greenlight adventure. Since No Time To Explain, we started helping other developers with their games. After getting enough muscle behind our internal studio, we came back to No Time To Explain, and completely remade the game in a proper engine. No Time To Explain Remastered is free for everyone who owns the original!
  25. I LOVE a harem of CatGirls Rubbing big slippery nipples NSFW mod!
