Loving it so far
I’ve also been playing Haven. Pretty chill game that doesn’t tell you much at first. Don’t have a good comp. It’s probably a good palate cleanser if you need it after cyberpunk.
Oh I’d bet it’s way more than that
I got my series x off Best Buy yesterday, pick up Saturday
The scalpers don’t bother me as much as the bots used to buy them. Back on previous releases the scalpers were the ones who got to the store early, snagged a console and flipped it locally for a couple hundred. I don’t like it, but I can live with that. The bots that crash websites and order within milliseconds annoy the fuck out of me because there is no shot for normal people. Before if I really wanted one the answer was wake up and camp out. In conclusion, fuck the bots. They need to figure this out for ps6 and Xbox series x one x 2 or whatever stupid confusing name they go with in a decade.
Time to retire my turtle beach headset as I can't sound mix with the controller anymore on the Series X. Looking for recommendations please.
Fits big heads
ability to easily mix in game sound. ex- turn down game volume/increase chat volume.
Wireless would be cool but not absolutely necessary.
HyperX Cloud II - Gaming Headset, 7.1 Surround Sound, Memory Foam Ear Pads, Durable Aluminum Frame, Detachable Microphone, Works with PC, PS4, Xbox One - Red
I ordered these for my son for Xmas.
SteelSeries Arctis 9X Wireless...
Those are about the best on the market.
almost pulled the trigger then saw notes that they fit snugly on big heads. Back to the drawing board.
HyperX Cloud Alpha - Gaming Headset, Dual Chamber Drivers, Award Winning Comfort, Durable Aluminum Frame, Detachable Microphone, Works on PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Mobile Devices – Red
Got a Series X to the checkout point on Best Buy but no locations within 250 miles of me. Tried the whole west coast because I could road trip with my kids once their finals are over this week. No dice. Entered a five-digit zip code randomly, and it worked, but MN is a little too far away so I said fuck it
before I go the Best Buy one, I was on Walmart site for their 3pm drop... got into my cart finally and actually got a checkout to process, but my card got declined. Got a text a minute later from Bank of America asking me to verify the transaction wasn't fraud... was so pissed. Luckily Best Buy came through after that otherwise I was going to be livid.
Series S delivered last night. Wanted to give it to youngest immediately so we all can get busy on it, wife said no wait for Christmas
at least set it up. will probably take forever on Christmas day.
Can’t wait til after Christmas when an x is going to be drastically easier to find I’m going to assume.
My youngest two are 15 and 18 and committed gamers. They'll have the thing up and running on no time
Youngest has been using older one's switch. Older one wants his switch back, but instead set up the old 360 in his room. The Series S is sitting next to him in the shipping box (he knows about it but the younger one doesn't), and he's exercising admirable restraint so far
Just had a meeting with the two of them, telling older one that Gamestop probably has our PS5 order just fine, don't worry (see other thread). Told younger that I've stopped looking for Series X at the moment because they're just not dropping anywhere. Older looked like his head was going to explode
I'm so desperate I'll settle for a Series S, but I'd prefer not to pay the price of a Series X for one.
Any of you guys playing pga 2k21? Any good? Might buy it since I'm so bored being quarantined.
it’s difficult and has a tough learning curve but is very rewarding when you start to get good.
Youngest is snug as a bug in a rug playing the latest COD. He's happy with the S so far, prolly because it's better than nothing (his brother's switch)
Debating if it is worth joining one of these bot-farms for a month to snag an xsx for 30$
The same people who are snatching them all up with bots have services you can join that will let you know when its available in real time with updates, alerts etc
Got an S in the mail. Twill be here by New Years Eve, hopefully.
Understanding that GamePass was already a much better option...this XBox Live price hike is fucking insane. They literally doubled the price.
Still can’t find any of these things anywhere.
May have some at Best Buy right now.
100% has to be a thinly veiled ploy to force everyone else to Game Pass
No Best Buy’s here to pick up :-/
Not thinly at all. If you subscribe to game pass doesn’t seem like this has any impaxt
Dang didn’t know pick up only. I started following wario64 on Twitter to track PS5s. Seems to keep up with restocks.
For all the shit Microsoft has taken in the past, their gaming division has done an awesome job at responding and listening to its base in the last few years.
Were they surprised by the reaction to doubling the price in the middle of a pandemic?
I mean, it really didn’t impact any of us, if you had an existing Xbox live account your rate wasn’t going to increase, the goal was to bring new consumers directly to gamepass. I think it was a misguided step, but there’s a lot of companies that wouldn’t have course corrected.
Vols twitter strikes again. Cancel culture has gone too far!
Finally played "Golf with your Friends" for the first time this weekend. Damn good time.
Hockey mode is more fun in a goofy way
upgraded to Ultimate for $1. yay
Newegg has $10 off the 12mo sub to Xbox Live Gold...digital key, so emailed right away.
35,000 Bing points gets you three months free Ultimate Game Pass. I re-upped earlier this month for a dollar, but when that runs out, I'm sitting at 36k points, ready to cash-in.
But then you have to use bing
It's a step down, but it's not hard to just go to google directly when necessary
Anyone loving a game(s) rn?
I've been on Control, Cyber Shadow, Slay the Spire, and Rust (pc) a ton.
Slay the spire is awesome, I am a rogue like fiend, and i really like it. Control I bough months ago and I was mostly meh on it. If you like retro games and rogue likes I love undermine.
Can’t you just cash it in, redeem the code and that would just add 3 months to your current sub?
I don't know and since I already re-upped before hitting my 35k threshold I just haven't bothered.
Never played Final Fantasy XV so I got it on Gamepass. Been playing a lot of that and Tetris Effect, with a little Katana Zero on the side.
