This last week was another slow one, but that doesn't mean there weren't any great games added to Steam Deck Verified/Playable! Monster Hunter: World, Star Ocean The Second Story R, and 7 others are part of our highlights for the past week, and they are all worth a look:

Verified or Playable games don't automatically mean they work amazing out of the box. Some of these games may require work to optimize and play well. Here are our thoughts on the Verified system and how it can be fixed.

EndlessDungeonStock1 1

ENDLESS™ Dungeon is a Rogue-lite Tactical Action game, set in the award-winning ENDLESS™ Universe. Recruit a team of shipwrecked heroes, plunge into a long-abandoned space station, and protect your crystal against never-ending waves of monsters… or die trying, get reloaded, and try again.

The game is $29.99 and rated Playable due to small in-game text, and the first-time setup needs an internet connection.

The game is $29.99 and rated Playable due to some small in-game text.

El Paso, Elsewhere (Verified) (SDHQ Review)


STAKES. GUNS. SLOW-MO. Fight werewolves and vampires in a reality-shifting motel. Dive through barricades to escape the grasp of evil puppets. Destroy the villain you loved. A new, third-person love letter to classic shooters. Neo-noir never looked so good.
