Hello, and welcome to a new edition of the overkill digest newsletter — a weekly email roundup of all things handheld gaming and beyond.
A ton of new folks have joined the newsletter via our recent Steam Deck survey (here are the results if you missed them — they're well worth digging into). A big welcome to all those new! Of course, if you signed up just to get the results or for our giveaway with Green Man Gaming, then you can easily unsubscribe using the link below — but we hope you'll stick around and give things a try.

For next year, we will make this step much more straightforward and separate the giveaway from the newsletter to clarify that these are optional steps.
Alas, let's start with today's newsletter!
