    Maybe my favorite thing to do in Halo 2 was to have the flag in 1 Flag CTF on Lockout and just roam around the middle platform melee killing people saying "Welcome to Earth" like Will Smith in Independence Day.

    Lol I don't think Platinum rank is "average" in any game. I would bet you're in the top 25% or higher.

    Maybe, I think I only went 6/4 in my 10 matches and wasn't like the top of the leaderboard every game so I figured placements were just generous. The BR feels good, which makes me happy, my sniper is rusty. The equipment and new guns are a learning curve rn, not used to them. Still getting the hang of grenade physics and how melee tracks in this game.

    Also agree on the battle pass, hopefully they fix that.

    Not playing ranked until I feel comfortable with it all. But once that time comes I will be grinding ranked hard.

    I had serious nostalgia as I realized halfway through a CTF match that half my team quit.

    Game is pretty damn fun. Wish there were more BRs located in the maps. Will try ranked, but my buddy refuses to play crossplay, lol.

    I did just notice that my elite 2 controller is no longer compatible with the PC app so I can change my button mapping. Think some insider beta firmware was released on xbox so now it's messed with the PC functionality.

    Friend and I who played the shit out of Halo 1 and 2 didn't like Halo 3 as much but we still played it. He made the gamertag OffTheCliffWeGo but it wasn't for enemies hijacking. He would pick up teammates in a Warthog then just drive off a cliff. It was right in his name so they had no one to blame but themselves.

    just got an email from microsoft that they released some more Xs, but you have to bundle it with a game and extra controller. Idk if anyone is interested but the option is out there for the time being.

    Among all the other talk in here, I must have missed that Xbox cloud gaming is fully live. So I’m playing forza on my MacBook in browser. This is the future.

    Wait...I guess I don't really know how it works. I can just play any game anywhere? On any OS? Do I need a controller to plug in or what?

    I think it’s strictly console games. If you don’t have a Pc, I don’t know a way other than boot camp or VM on mac to play your Xbox game pass ultimate PC games.

    It should be. Logged in? Game pass ultimate? (I’m not sure if there is a game pass separate from game pass ultimate).

    Yeah to their point, any game pass game, I think you have to be game pass ultimate, if that’s a separate plan, and any controller works (I’ve seen people using ps4 controller). iPad, iPhone, MacBook, whatevs.

    How addicting is The Eliminator challenge on Forza? Had to make myself go to bed last night. They should keep it permanently, but add some kind of co-op to it.

    Speak to me. I’ve been playing forza heavy, but kinda hitting a boring part as I have around 11million in the bank and almost all the races completed

    It's Forza Battle Royale:
    -You pick a location on the entire map to start
    -Find loot (look for purple smoke on horizon)
    -Avoid storm closing in
    -If you see another car, you can challenge them to get their car or to improve your car by 1 level
    -After you make the final 10-15 there's a race to a random point on the map (which can honestly be frustrating, because others will be closer than you to start)

    Don't expect much from loot drops -- I've never found a car above level 5 at one -- best way to get better cars is challenging other cars to a race. It's really fun... Highly recommend.

    Is the Series X hard to find/get right now? My son wants one but it looks like the only way to get one is a bundle.

    I got an email from Microsoft saying I could buy direct and I just got one scheduled for delivery Dec 22nd.

    Should I be excited, or rather should my son be excited?

    The best part of the cloud streaming of console games is that you don’t have to download anything. Is there Xbox cloud streaming for Pc games (your age of empire or sims or whatever)? I’d like to 1) play Pc games via cloud streaming on my MacBook and/or 2) not have to download these big ass games on my limited storage options on my PC. Any chance of that?

    cloud gaming through the xbox app has been awesome. makes not being able to get my hands on a console no big deal, especially with halo multiplayer free with gamepass.

    seems like this thread might have its fair share of PC Gamers. Wife wants something to play new Age of Empires / Sims. I would not mind playing the new halo on a PC. Any tips for a good gaming laptop or whatever for these games? Don't need the best of the best or anything, but something that will handle all these games.
