More Deck news:

Valve has announced a compatibility certification system, Steam Deck Verified:

Rock Paper Shotgun had a chat with Valve about it too.

And Half-Life 2 has been updated to add some apparently Deck-specific features including HUD scaling and aspect ratio independence, Vulkan support, fixes for various bugs and a few other nice things like ultrawide support:

I'm probably going to get one for myself over holiday break. I'll consider it a graduation gift :)

That's extremely optimistic, given that there's a queue and if you join it now the delivery date is "after Q2 2022"... Unless you meant the holiday break next year!

Well I thought they would be in stores by then. I didn't think would need to join a queue...

Delayed two months. I'm Q2 now so clearly wasn't near the front of the Q1 queue!

I was coming here to moan about this very thing! :lol:

Just got an email and I won't be getting mine until February. It's sooner than Q2, sure, but a delay is a delay — it still sucks.
