    Is it fine to buy the series s over the series x? The s seems to be readily available as opposed to the x

    I just see it as a halfway point between the One and the series X

    Multiplayer is great. Has it's issues, but gameplay is top notch. Campaign is incredibly fun with the grappleshot.

    Officially part of the Xbox group now since ps5’s remained impossible to find and the Xbox series s was readily available plus halo.

    Most of my time will be taken up with halo since I don’t game as much as I used to but any other games I need to check out? I bought the monthly deal that gives you the free games as that seemed like a real good deal.

    Also you really can’t play campaign with a friend online for halo until may? That seems really dumb

    Game pass is the best. There are apparently separate subplans for PC and for console, and then combined called Ultimate, which I have and you might have, idk. It’s the best since it also gives you the cloud gaming for on the go or on console without downloading anything. Occasional artifact tearing but it’s remarkably stable usually. I love it.

    The ultimate version gets you XBL Gold too doesn’t it? I think that’s why I went that route. Figured 14.99 was better than 9.99 x2

    Yup, you got the right one. Enjoy! The Xbox controller for the new console will obviously be Bluetooth as well so it will pair to your devices easily for cloud gaming

    I think I played through the Namekian saga and swapped to PC and never bought it there, so I didn’t ever end up finishing it.

    Yes and yes. I do have the M1 MacBook so it’s a bit faster but very little artifacting. Occasionally heavy lag during my last Halo attempt so I got an Xbox dongle thing to plug into my Pc tower and have been leaning on that more (and better with the native Xbox app).

    Most of the “newer” controllers from even the Xbox one generation are Bluetooth. Can’t fully remember how to tell if your controller is bt-compatible, something about the form factor around the main Xbox button.
