    Also it seems the Deck orders have finally hit the point of no longer being a pre-order. If you order a deck now (and assuming no spikes in orders, in the future) it ships in weeks. The list has finally been completed.

    Yup, the site now says "Buy now! Estimated delivery 1-2 weeks" for all three versions, at least here in UK land.

    The Steam Deck is now easier to get hold of than the PS5 or Series X.

    Guess now we know who nVidia sold their TSMC allocations to. 😂

    No, I mean that once someone buys and allocation from TSMC (to build chips) the only way out of using the allocation is for the customer (not TSMC itself) to sell that allocation to someone else. Basically they're so in demand they can do whatever the fuck they want.

    nVidia was having issues with having too much allocations as they had bought as if the Crypto wave was going to last forever. So they needed to sell or drown in more product than they can sell.

    You know, they should totally do a Steam Workshop for Deck startup videos.

    Heck, stick ‘em on the points store and then add in a UI element to let you pick it.

    It would fill with porn faster than you can shake your Deck at, but it would be great.

    A Deckory Dickery Dock?

    Ah, gotcha, thanks. TIL and all that! :+1:

    I can only imagine AMD, and thus Valve, Microsoft, and Sony were only too glad to say "thank you very much, don't mind if we do."

    Slightly contradicting myself, here's some more info on the official Dock from the official twitter:


    Getting some more questions about Dock specs. It’s got:
    • MST (multi-stream transport), enabling multi-monitor support
    • DisplayPort 1.4 + HDMI, supports up to 1440p 120 hz, or 4k 60 hz
    • FreeSync support
    • Easy firmware updates via Steam Deck
    • 45W Type C power supply

    All it's really missing is a USB-C out besides the power socket and maybe a slightly juiced (65W?) power supply to account for peripherals, I guess.

    I'm pretty underwhelmed by the wattage on that thing, are they sure that will power a Deck when it's in use?

    I ordered one anyways because I'm dumb and I just want a dock that the Deck will sit up on, but man that wattage unnerves me.

    I mean, the APU has a TDP of around 15W. Even if you were adding other 15W for screen, etc (it's not going to be that much) it still has plenty of juice left

    It's nice of them and amazing compared to every other company, but since it's a decades old game and they make all their money selling other peoples games it's probably worth far more in good PR etc than anything else.

    It needs to be said more that Valve is a private company. Money absolutely factors into their decisions, but they don't have the pressure of shareholders pushing them to maximize ever-increasing profits at all costs. So you can't judge everything they do based on the usual capitalist min-max strategy.

    So I said I'd gone as far as I planned to go with Lost Ark, but there's still side stuff to do, and they're running one of their occasional 'boost up a character' events, so why not, one last alt to fill up the last of the six character slots you get for free:

    Covert Actions
    Vard Northborn is back from training with the Templars, and has demonstrated a much sharper combat intelligence that's cleared them for promotion to lieutenant.

    Currently, Corsini and Mugsley are off to scavenge from a battle the Reapers just wrapped up, see if there's any alien material we can make use of.

    Operation Death Prince
    While we close in on ADVENT's ultimate goals, the administration continues to rely on the same simple, brutal strategies. A resistance haven in the western US named Unity Ridge was attacked by an alien strike force, and 21stCentury, Nova_C, Regina Justitae, Telum, @Jazz, and @Fencingsax were deployed to defend the haven.

    With Telum scouting, the squad moved assist the haven's perimeter defenders as they held off a pair of chryssalids. Justitae and 21stCentury cut the bugs down during the advance. Upon reaching the group of defenders we found the postion also under attack on the flank by an andromedon and sectoid. The andromedon closed in while the sectoid disappeared into a building. Justitae put a burst of cannon fire into the andromedon, allowing 21st to finish its operator with a lightning hands and then the suit with a rapid fire. The squad kept pushing into the haven, readying overwatches to cut down the sectoid when it showed its head, but it'd already fled to regroup with pods on other flanks.

    Reaching the settlement proper, we could tell there was fighting on all sides. Our operatives equipped with grapples and jetpacks, namely 21st, Jazz, and Telum, opted to use these to advance ahead of the squad and engage the alien force as soon as possible, with the other half of the squad not yet in position to support. While ostensibly this was done to save civilian lives, squad comms indicate that it being "some sick shmoovement" was a factor in the decision. 21st and Jazz took up rooftop positions on opposite sides of the haven's square, attracting the attention of the three pods engaged in the assault. The force, thinned somewhat by the haven's defenders, consisted of two codexes, the earlier sectoid, three mutons, and three berserkers.

    A shot from one of the resistance fighters split one of the codexes, and the clone's teleport brought it close to the squad. This allowed Regina Justitiae to close in with a RAGE suit smash to finish it before putting a blaster bomb onto the position of one of the mutons. 21stCentury entered serial and finished this muton off before doing the same for a berserker wounded by resistance fighters, and killing the previously undamaged codex. Telum grappled up onto the roof of a van in the square to take out another berserker with a rapid fire, then hopped off to break line of sight and parked next to a wounded muton. Jazz entered serial as well and put a beam through the skull of the other surviving muton, then readied a killzone over the repurposed shipping container the berserker was hidden in.

    The berserker simply stayed put to crush a civilian trapped with it, but a sleeper faceless revealed itself in an attempt to turn the tide, while the surviving sectoid and half a codex reengaged. The last muton also attempted to maneuver, but that just got it cut down by Telum's bladestorm. The codex dropped a psionic rift on Telum and Jazz while the sectoid raised one of the dead civvies as a psi zombie, but things that would hurt us later simply weren't going to cut it for the aliens at this point in the battle. The resistance fighters gunned down the zombie and faceless, and the chosen assassin's shotgun, wielded by Telum, was actually completely unaffected by the rift. The ranger moved in and killed the surviving berserker with a hair trigger double tap. Shifting positions on their rooftop got 21st a flank on the sectoid, and they put a pistol round through its brain. With the other half of the squad now reaching the square, Nova_C got eyes on the remaining half a codex and gunned it down to finish the mission.

    And putting the Stay Subscribed option in a big bold clickable button with large lettering whilst putting the cancel option in tiny ordinary letters at the bottom so it looks like generic disclaimer text that your eye glazes over.
