Valve Software is introducing a way to access your Steam library through your iOS or Android device. The company, which owns and operates the Steam PC game-distribution platform and community, is launching the Steam Link app on the App Store and Google Play market the week of May 13. Like the Steam Link box, this app will beam games from your PC to a separate device, but the app does not need dedicated hardware connected to phone or tablet to work. The Steam Link app is free and works on 5Ghz Wi-Fi networks, which can maintain the speed necessary for smooth video. You can also connect a gamepad to your device — like a Steam Controller — to have a console-like input experience. This is something that should enable people to keep playing games even when they can’t sit down at a desktop alone in their office (hey, that sounds familiar). I’ll go hands on with the Steam Link app as soon as I can, and I’m looking forward to see if it has touchscreen control. … [Read more...] about Valve launches Steam Link app for streaming games to your smartphone

source Business Insider Perhaps you’ve thought about it before: What if I stick TWO monitors together to play games in super-ultra-widescreen? But that’s never been a reality, at least for me and probably a lot of PC gamers out there. When you place two monitors together, you get the monitor bezels right down the middle of your makeshift “super-ultra-widescreen” setup. Those bezels get in the way and just don’t work in video games. So Samsung came along and solved the problem by sticking two widescreen monitors together without that unwanted bezel down the middle. It’s created the first “super ultra-wide” monitor. After playing several games on the monitor for about a month, I’ve decided that the CHG90 and its incredibly wide 32:9 aspect ratio is the new gold standard for enjoying video games. Check out what it’s like to play video games on Samsung’s super-ultra-wide CHG90 monitor: If … [Read more...] about Here’s what it’s like to play video games on the widest computer monitor in the world
