Steam Controller & Steam Link, First Thoughts

October 21, 2015

I pre-ordered the Steam Controller & Steam Link back in June. As a PC gamer the idea of being able to play games on the couch seemed alluring. As a long time Valve fan I assumed they would get this right, so far I’m a little underwhelmed.

My tepid first impressions stem from some games not starting at all through Steam Link, while others like Portal II claim to be Steam Controller compatible but certainly weren’t for me. I’m sure with time most of these issues will be remedied but I was expecting a little more sizzle out of the box.

On the bright side, Skyrim works pretty well with some of the community sourced config files, and Skyrim rocks so it’s got that going for it. What are your thoughts on the Steam Controller & Steam Link?
