I picked up a lot of things at CORGS-Con 2023. Such things included a DSi, The Orange Box, Mario Party DS, some amiibo, and... a Steam Link. My thinking was that it would be perfect for my setup, because I buy a lot of very interesting games on Steam that I want to show to other people, and I could also play Steam games on the big screen.

Did my wording right there make you think that this was a negative review? It is not. I LOVE the Steam Link, and I think it's one of the most underrated pieces of gaming hardware.

I hooked up my personal favorite controller (which is the Wii U Pro controller because I'm different) and it works beautifully for the most part. One issues I have is lag when there is a large amount of stuff on screen, it gets a bit laggy, but I think that's just the setup I have. I don't use it with Ethernet, which despite what some people may think, actually works fine for the most part.

I figured some people may be curious, so here's some games I have and their compatibility level:

F.I.S.H - Laggy sometimes, almost perfect
Geometry Dash - Very laggy
B.I.R.D. (Demo) - Perfect
Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy - Perfect
DELTARUNE - Perfect
Plants vs. Zombies - Perfect
Operation STEEL - Laggy sometimes, almost perfect

Due to low sales, for a while there, Steam was offering them for five dollars. As such, you may have already bought one when they went for that cheap. I would recommend that you dust off your old one and give it a try. At least for me, it works way better than I thought it would.

I've been koola, and what's a Steam Deck?

(I've been playing waay too much Dicey Dungeons lately...)

Welcome to my little side of the internet! This is where I post game reviews, video-game related things, and stuff about MY game, OMNIFATE. Expect a new article about every month; sometimes I post more than once in a month or take five-month long breaks.

(The schedule is a guideline.)
