    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.

    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.

    Wants:
    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.

    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.

    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.

    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)

    Understanding that GamePass was already a much better option...this XBox Live price hike is fucking insane. They literally doubled the price.

    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.

    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.

    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.
