Gaming news: what's happening this week 🎮 Netflix and gaming?
Valve Announces the Steam Deck, a £349 Handheld Gaming PC.
Last year, when we heard the rumors that Valve, the American video game developer responsible for Steam and titles like Half-Life, Portal, Counterstrike and Dota, were going to release their very own handheld device, we didn't know what to believe. Maybe they guys at Valve were getting impatient and couldn't wait for the new Nintendo Switch release? Maybe they wanted to make their own mini-PC to carry with them anywhere? No matter the reason, the rumors were true and the Steam Deck is here!
What is it? The Steam Deck is a handheld, lightweight and portable PC. Take a look at the promotional video:

Nintendo presents the Nintendo Switch (OLED Model)
It's all about handhelds this week and Nintendo has released their Switch, now with a new and shiny OLED screen.
So, is it the Nintendo Switch Pro?
Nope, it's not, but a revision of the current hardware. This year will see improvements to its storage and, most notably, its display. Nintendo has added a pair of stereo speakers with enhanced audio so you don't have to be glued to the screen when playing in handheld mode. You can have this new Nintendo Switch, with OLED screen, LAN port, plus speakers, plus 64GB of storage and a giant rear kickstand for $350 USD.
It will be released in most countries on October 8th, 2021.
An epic battle of handheld devices is here. Who will be crown the winner? Only time will tell!
Chris Judge, who voices Kratos in God of War, will voice Black Panther!
Nobody can't take the place of the original King T'Challa, Chadwick Boseman. When his life was cut short way too soon, many mourned and subsequently wondered what was going to happen to the character he had embodied so well. Who could be brave -and epic- enough to try and fill Bosema's shoes? So, when we heard that Christopher Judge, (the voice actor behind everyone's favourite gaming paternal figure, Kratos), was going to be Boseman's sucesor in Marvel’s Avengers upcoming Black Panther DLC, we sighed with relief: Chris is a true veteran, famous for voicing a number of video game characters and a worthy sucesor to Boseman.

Netflix Games might be a reality next year!
Netflix might add games to its ever-growing catalogue and services as early as next year. This is no doubt a product of the success some streaming services are enjoying in the gaming world, and the entertainment titan doesn't want to miss on the fun! Nothing is confirmed yet, but neither was the Steam Deck, and here we are.
The rumors sparked after Netflix hired the former Electronic Arts Inc. and Facebook Inc. executive, Mike Verdu, as their first vice president of game developing. While working at Facebook, Verdu was in charge of working with developers to create games and content for Oculus.
The TADUUM of Netflix, followed by our favourite games... What do you guys think of that?
