Gotta say it's kind of fun playing fallout with actual mods since PS4 doesn't let almost anything through. Especially as a life long console dude. Is Skyrim the same deal on Xbox?

They let more stuff through but its real easy to crash the game from what i heard

So, I'll probably finish up Quantum break this weekend. Whats another exclusive worth busting out?

How are Halo 5 and Gears 4?
Other stuff I might try are Ori and the Blind forest and Recore.

Ori is good
Recore is an unfinished mess
Halo 5/gears 4 are more of those games.
Dead rising 3/4 are sucky versions of dead rising
Rare replay is good value
Ryse is launch window filler
Sunset overdrive is ok

Cant think if anymore games rn except forza

If I have an Xbox and will definitely buy the xbox one x, is it worth getting a ps4 for the exclusive games like horizon zero dawn and uncharted and all? I probably wouldn't even use it for anything but games. The Xbox one x has good games coming out for it right?

Ps4 has good games but why bother when you got a 499 console refresh coming in hot

I still prefer xboxox

And I'm glad this thing sold out when I was out of country this weekend because I might have been tempted to pre-order even though I have a new PC with every good xbox game on it already.

Still hoping it does well because I am a tech whore and want consoles to keep up.

They wont keep up, none of them actually care about performance specs

The x is continuing the jaguar cpu line that keeps most games locked at 30 fps.

univbee's absolutely-not-from-personal-experience-I-swear guide to hiding your Bonx purchase from the wife, because pre-ordering a Bonx is THAT embarassing and also grounds for divorce in over 210 countries

This assumes your wife is looking at line items on your CC statement but not TOO closely to know that things are more expensive than usual.

This should work with Amazon, may work with other stores that have gift cards, those may require you manually get a store rep to intervene and apply gift card balances to specific orders.

You got your pre-order? Fantastic! Work out how many weeks until your CC will get charged (usually 7 days before release date or thereabouts, may vary depending on country and store).

Now what you want to do, is sneak the occasional gift card for Amazon or wherever into your normal everyday purchases in places like grocery stores and pharmacies, basically a store where you would normally do purchases and carries gift cards. You add on a $20 or a $50 gift card, once maybe twice a week, you have to math to figure out how long you have until release. In the case of the Bonx, you have about 10 weeks before the "hammer" drops on the CC, which means if you're Canadian (I'm guessing from the $600+tx comment) you need to sneak about $70 worth a week starting now. You need to buy something else with the gift card so the amount doesn't look too clean, like a candy bar so the amount says $51.14 and not $50.00. You may also be able to get away with a lower amount if, say, a $90 charge from Amazon is OK, you have to math and guess to figure out what's going to keep you out of divorce court (short answer: nothing will).

If your wife is definitely going to notice groceries are $300 higher than normal you'll have to spin other lies, which you should have experience with. Buy expired stuff at a discount and pretend it's prime grade stuff. gently caress it, I don't know, my wife loves me and I don't have to lie to her. No, really, she does. Shut up.

Why not just switch the bank statement to paperless billing for your email address only and change your email password?

Is it worth the $19.99? Being one of the few Hdr games I was thinking of picking it up. I played the demo and it was intriguing as kind of a chill relaxing explorer type game.

Xbox's poo poo version of Nier Automata is what I gather it is.

Its more a collectathon platformer
