Totally Rated also gives you the lowdown on the hottest new handheld, the Steam Deck. Designed to make it easier to play your Steam PC games wherever you are, the first batches of the console will go out at the end of this year. The day pre-orders went live saw the usually stable Steam platform topple under the demand, so there are certainly early signs that the machine could be a success with gamers. 

Finally, GamesRadar's Aleksha McLoughlin checked out the new Elgato FaceCam, a webcam designed to appeal to anyone looking to be the next big streaming sensation. 

"The Elgato FaceCam is the latest attempt to break into the Twitch streaming space, after building up years of good faith with the widely beloved HD60 line of internal and external capture cards, she explains.

"Elgato is now turning their attention purely to what has become an increasing prevalence in recent years: streamers having their faces on-show while they game. 

"If you're a streaming/online content creator with a professional setup and just need something that looks nice but is also quick and easy to set up - that also has some customizability to it - then the Elgato FaceCam is a good bet for you. 

"For everyone else, you may need to look elsewhere."

New episodes of Totally Rated will roll out every Friday.

Between Official PlayStation Magazine, GamesIndustry.biz and Rolling Stone I've picked up a wide range of experience, from how to handle the madness of E3 to making easy conversation with CEOs and executives of game companies over seafood buffets. At GamesRadar+ I'm proud of the impact I've had on the way we write news, and now - as managing editor in the US - the huge traffic successes we're seeing. Most of all I'm proud of my team, who have continued to kick ass through the uncertainty of 2020 and into 2021, and are what makes GamesRadar+ so special.
