Starfield is the newest game from Bethesda, the folks who made Skyrim, Oblivion, Fallout 3 and 4, etc. Lots of folks are saying "Skyrim in space".

For any PC players interested, fanatical.com has a deal using code fanatical17 coupon code to save 17%. The only real downside to doing that vs buying on steam is not having the refund option. I jumped on this version. Going to try running it on my Steam Deck as well as my PC which will be the main place I play it. I did also go through the setup of Sunshine and Moonlight so I have the option of play on the Steam Deck with my PC doing the heavy lifting. Initial reports of Steam Deck performance are its ok, to pretty choppy at times especially in the really populated planets.
Reviews are all going live now. Reddit aggregate thread below:
Performance-wise, I think I will be good. AMD 5600x with a RTX 3700 should be plenty. They want to sell a boat load of PC copies (especially with no PS5/4 version) so I think the game will run on a wide range of hardware.
So who is in?
