  2. PC players with a hankering for some big stompy robot action are in luck; mech shooter Daemon X Machina has been confirmed as next week's free Epic Games Store game.

With Steam Deck currently still on track to meet its revised February 2022 release date, there's a lot of work going on behind-the-scenes in preparation for launch, including Valve's extensive drive to rate every game on Steam's compatibility with the highly anticipated portable gaming PC - and the first batch of Steam titles to have received ratings, whether that a fully compatible Verified or otherwise, have now appeared for perusal online. Valve first discussed its Steam Deck Verified initiative back in October, announcing it had started reviewing the entire Steam catalogue to create a new compatibility ratings system - labelling games as either Verified, Playable, Unsupported, and Unknown - that would provide Steam Deck users with a simple means of checking how games will function on their system.

It's an exciting thing, but also deeply inconvenient when part of your job requires you to, well, describe games. Strange Horticulture calls itself a puzzle, but it isn't a puzzle in any way I associate with the word. You are the horticulturist, nameless and mostly voiceless, welcoming patrons into a shop that consists of many shelves of different vibrantly coloured plants and flowers, as well as a desk with a drawer. As a player, you can interact with the desk and its contents, as well as plants, of course. Read more View the full article
