Steam Link on the Cheap

Some sharp-eyed readers here noticed something we failed to note about the sale of ICEY on Steam when we reported it last night. Besides a 30% discount that brings the price of the 2D platformer down to $7.69 USD, Valve is also offering a bundle that includes Steam Link hardware for just a dollar more, so the game and Steam link together are 86% off. It's actually not quite that good, because this carries a $7.99 USD shipping charge, but in the end you get the game and Steam Link shipped for $16.68, while the Steam Link usually sells for $49.99 plus shipping. Steam Link is a hardware solution that allows you to play games from your PC streamed to a television set, which should suit games like ICEY nicely. This deal is valid until 1:00 pm EDT tomorrow.

Each time I move my rent seems to get twice as high and my apartment twice as small, so my computer is now near enough to my TV to run a long HDMI. Which I've done. But not often. It's a bit of a pain, as I have to unplug that cord from my second monitor, and my wireless keyboard seems to cut in and out like mad.

So I picked this up. It'll certainly be easier than running a wire, and maybe I'll just do it for games I'd use a controllger for.

Weren't you someone that had strong opinions in the past about how nobody would do this (hook a computer up to their living room TV)?
