First off, apologies for going quiet lately. Between work, being sick, projects around the house and working on developing a mobile app, I haven’t had a ton of time to come up with blog post ideas. However, I decided to do something a bit different today. Rather than posting about something cool, I am hoping to get some feedback from all the amazing readers of Global Geek News. What do I want to hear your thoughts on? Mobile PC gaming!
For years, the only way to get your PC gaming fix on the go was to lug around a really heavy gaming laptop that didn’t quite live up to the “portable” gaming PC dream as it was too heavy and had horrible battery life. I know this because I used to carry around a 15 lb (yes, you read that right) 17″ gaming laptop whose battery life sucked so I had to take the charger (more weight) everywhere I went. Speaking of weight, that doesn’t even mention things like headphones, wireless mouse or any other accessories.
Thankfully, times have changed! Gaming laptops don’t have to give you shoulder problems anymore and even the battery life can be pretty decent! And not only do gaming laptops suck less than they used to, but now there is a whole new category of handheld gaming pc devices like the Steam Deck and ASUS ROG Ally that make it really convenient for scratching the PC gaming itch on the go!
So that brings me to the real question of the post, how do you get your mobile PC gaming fix? I do a bit of both in that I have an ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 gaming laptop (great gaming performance and 10 hour battery life for when I’m not gaming) and I have a Steam Deck that I take most everywhere with me that I might have the opportunity to do some gaming. For me it really comes down to what I feel like playing. If I’m in the mood to play some RTS games like Age of Empires, then I will use my G14 gaming laptop. But if I’m playing a game where a controller makes more sense, then I am most likely reaching for my Steam Deck.
So what do you do to get your mobile PC gaming fix? Do you have a gaming laptop? What about one of the new handhelds like the Steam Deck or ASUS ROG Ally? Let me know in the comments below and tell me what you prefer about how you get your mobile pc gaming fix! Also, I’d love to hear what PC games you guys are playing lately? I’m always looking for suggestions to add to my giant game backlog. LOL
