The Steam Deck has finally started shipping to nearly universal praise. I think they only downside to the Steam Deck I've heard of is that if you play hefty graphical games at 60fps the battery life doesn't last very long. Valve has some toggles to downscale games to get more battery life, but if you can only get an hour or two from any modern intensely graphical game.

To date, Valve has released some innovative hardware that hasn't quite achieved mainstream status. The Steam Deck seems like it might be the magic hardware that a lot of gamers may get. That said, if you signed up for the Steam Deck late in the game it might take you a long time to finally get one. Let me know in the comments if you plan to pick this up or if Valve's latest hardware won't be something you get.

**Update: I'll drop coverage of the Steam Deck in the comments I find interesting so check that if you want**

Internet is already reporting drift problems: https://twitter.com/Wario64/status/1498688819335348224

Given that this is the internet, it is probably a small subset that is amplified. Still sucks though.

What I learned:
- Gabe is back in the states!
- Gabe interviewed with IGN from prison.
- Nerds don't make good people for surprise drop off videos.
