People will tell you how capable the Steam Deck is to try to talk it up, but really all you need to know is you can easily do things like this custom boot animation with it.

@polymerwitch That's an egregious use of processor cycles. I'm totally here for it!

@polymerwitch Looks neat, but I'm trying not to mess up my Steam Deck.

@polymerwitch every time I see a steam deck I wanna buy one it's so cool

But it's also heavy and apparently hard to play when i.e. laying on bed and that's when I'd most want to use it

But it's so cool

@hazelnot @polymerwitch I never understood the fascination with handheld consoles (and mobile gaming before them). Real gaming has to happen on a tower PC. If your PC box doesn't need more cooling than a nuclear reactor and you cannot use the CPU heatsink to roast a chicken while you finish your raid, you're doing it wrong. Also, how do I use my 48 hotbar abilities on a handheld? :-)

@polymerwitch Is this your deck? I got mine pretty recently and have yet to do anything too absurd to it.
