Steam Deck

With Valve announcing a new and frankly amazing kind of mobile PC hardware that will have full access to existing steam libraries, you might find yourself looking for ways to best prepare yourself for when your steam deck is finally in your hands. If you are, this article highlights some of the best ways to make the most of your steam deck once it arrives.

Beef Up Your Internet

Probably the first thing you will want to do when preparing for your steam deck is to beef up the quality of your internet connection. Remember that you can’t plug your steam deck into an ethernet connection, and its range of games is highly dependent on your ability to stream said games directly from your PC. Otherwise, the steam deck has a relatively low storage capacity, even at its higher end. So, you’ll only be able to keep your favorites downloaded on the system.

Deck Out Your Game Library

Next, you’re going to want to check up with your game library to make sure that you have a great selection of games that you are going to want to play on your new device. The obvious place to start is your steam library but be sure to check around and locate all the games you want to be playing, like blackjack, at The more you have set up before you have your hands on the deck, the less time you have to waste waiting for games you want to play to download.

Set Up a Brilliant Gaming Space

Now that you have your games set up to play and an internet connection to support them, you are going to want to set up a comfortable area that you’ll want to be gaming in. The thing about gaming is that the ambiance is very important, so take your time and think about everything you might need to make your gaming sessions that extra little bit perfect.

Consider Your Charging Points

You are going to want to be sure you have easy access to plug sockets so that you can charge the steam deck when you inevitably run through its charge. This is a key consideration when it comes to handholds, so think it through.

Clear Some Time to Play

All of this effort you’re going through to set yourself up is going to be absolutely wasted if you don’t have any time set aside to actually play games on your new device, so you should go ahead and figure out how to clear your schedule now. The sooner you block out some time to play, the more notice you can give everyone who needs to know.

Plan to Play With Friends

Finally, one of the best things you could probably do to prepare to play with your steam deck is to find out which of your friends are going to be getting their own as well. Handheld gaming is best enjoyed with company, and by finding out who else is going to have a steam deck when you do, you can plan to get together and play some games together.
