I've never really been a portable gamer.  We have a switch and it's pretty much permanently docked.  I like using a large display.

Price is better than a mid level gaming computer with similar function for what I do

The switch is getting long in the teeth

I like handhelds

seems like it depends on what you do.  in general, if you discount the portable aspect, it seems like you could build/buy a better performing PC for the money.  but obviously that PC isn't portable.  and if it plays the games you like just fine than who cares?

I like gaming in the hammock, on the couch, etc

The battery life is an issue, and I have portable solutions

Delivery delayed…

Why the hell is it in WHITEFISH, MT after being shipped from IL? I would have thought they would fly it from CHI to SEA

They do

I’m now watching performance videos instead of playing with a new toy

The deck vs series s comparisons are nice (considering it’s a handheld that’s got ALOT of support with regular updates)

It's on a train, not a plane.  There's a major train line from CHI to SEA that goes right through Whitefish (Amtrak uses the same line, I've ridden it from PDX to Whitefish).

Vanquish plays flawlessly - I never got around to this when it came out. Picked it up cheap on steam sale

Yakuzu 0 plays really well on the deck

I need to dig in and start up scaling games a bit at some point, but I’m just having fun with it (as I should)
