Valve's taking a lot of risks with the Steam Deck. The company has been quite up-front about the fact that it's a full-fat handheld PC, and while this comes with its own set of compromises, it also means that it should in theory be capable of playing the vast overwhelming majority of Steam's over-50,000 games.

What is generally considered to be one of the greatest PC games of all time is getting an unofficial (of sorts) remaster, and we are absolutely stoked. We are of course talking about Half-Life 2. It first came out nearly 17 years ago and is still without a true sequel (we've turned blue holding our collective breath... Read more...
Earlier this year, rumors of a Valve hardware console started to float around, but there were concerns about the ongoing chip shortage.

Fair or not, Mac users are sometime a forgotten bunch when it comes to playing computer games, perhaps even more so now that Apple has embarked on a slow breakup with Intel.
