    Called me local Walmart and asked if they had the new Series X in and the lady says no but we do have the Series S. I show up at the store and it’s the One S.

    I have not done any research apologies if this is ridiculously stupid, will an XB1 scuf work on the new console? Turtle beach headset? Seems like the headset should the scuf doubtful

    FWIW I got a stock alert email from Walmart 11 mins ago saying the disc version was in stock. Obviously was gone by the time I saw it, but could mean there's hope for sporadic stock.

    None of the trackers I'm on popped an alert saying theres stock, though...so it must have been super light

    Microsoft’s naming structure is so bad. It all started with them skipping Xbox 2 in favor of Xbox 360 because of the optics of Xbox 2 vs PS3. They felt it would make people perceive their console to be older or not current gen.

    Has anyone played the new assassins creed yet? Don’t care if on new console or not just was wondering if it was good. I’ve really enjoyed the last two.

    1. If you are looking for a headset and money isn't a problem, go with the Steelseries Arctix 9. They are wireless, beautiful, and can connect to bluetooth so you can rock discord or music whenever. 20-24 hours battery life. Fully charges in about 1-2 hours. The only downside is they are $200. Honestly, they are 100% worth it though.

    2. Call of Duty: Cold War looking beautiful on it. So does Gears Tactics, which leads me to point #3

    3. Gears Tactics is a great XCOM/Wasteland 3 type of RTS. On game pass aka free as fuck. It's a delight. And the Gears of War world works amazing with this type of game.

    That abstergo/animus thing is so convoluted at this point. Id be fine with them just doing the different time periods and abandoning the present day stuff.

    It was sweet in the first couple of games, they’ve essentially abandoned it though now and there’s no cohesive story to it I don’t think.

    Speaking of game pass, I had no clue about the rewards points system until yesterday. Pretty cool, I was gonna play games anyways, now I have a tiny shot of winning raffles or redeeming Xbox bucks or some shit.

    Gears 5 is already optimized for Series X and apparently looks amazing.

    I didn't realize Jedi: Fallen Order was gonna be on GamePass, game is really great so far. Combat is hard as shit.

    It's pretty debatable that 2k21 actually was. It's basically the same as current gen

    Yeah, the story is great so far. I upped the difficulty right off the bat, and I've been getting my shit rocked though. Getting Witcher 3 death march or Dark Souls vibes; feels like I've died 50 times already.

    Was stoked I barely made it through this part on my first try.

    I had to stop in Walmart today and there was two Series S sitting in their case. I got a series x and wasn't interested in a series s but surprised to see some sitting there. Maybe they are holding them until black Friday

    Antonline. They had a bundle up earlier with the Series S, extra controller, 3 months GPU, and Minecraft Dungeons for $400.

    I saw a tweet from Wario64 that it was about to go live. That dude has been clutch for so many people trying to beat bots.

    I think GamePass would stress me out. I pick up and a game and zone in on it for a long time. I'm one of those "explore all the nooks and crannies" of a game. Do they offer a free month? Maybe I'll give it a go and see how it works for me.

    Not sure about the free month, but I think it's worth the investment -- even if you don't get the full value every month. When games are on game pass, they're usually on it for a long time, so you'll almost certainly have a chance to finish the games you start.

    You can’t customize the 3 main protags in the game other than their armor, but any gears you recruit along the way are customizable like xcom.
