Isn't that a given though? As far as I was aware, there's no form of DRM that doesn't negatively impact the performance of a game.
There isn't. It's just rare that we get a direct head-to-head difference that is really undeniable.


Anyways...

Valve announces portable Steam Deck, which is a Switch-like portable that will run Steam games on SteamOS. Most basic model starts at $399, up to $649.

Are there any exclusives announced for the Steam Deck? I find it hard to take Valve seriously, as a hardware vendor. As in; it feels like they lauch and drop hardware projects the way google does software things = keep "launching" things and take them offline after some time has passed.

Nope. It's basically a PC compressed into a portable with a really nice screen, that can play Steam games.

Apparently, the handheld SteamOS is still having compatibility issues such that it can't play a lot of Steam's most popular games like PUBG or Destiny 2.

This video does a nice little overview of the Steam Deck.

Welp, I've preordered the 256GB version. Gonna use a large bit of my 'new laptop' fund, but it may just be worth it. I'm kinda excited.

Well looks like we're getting a proper localization of SRW 30 on Steam.

State of California bringing a lawsuit against Activision-Blizzard

From the sounds of it, the state did a 2-year investigation into a lot of complaints about toxic work culture and labour violations at AB. In the process, they gave AB several chances to better their work practices, which they barely did. Some vile stuff in there.
 
Activision-Blizzard likely has more than enough money to drag this out until California just gives up.
