Dude.
Some loonies from the next-gen asylum are asking for public apologies from xbox fans on here ok.
We've seen a couple pages back how they come up in this thread, of all places, to harass totally chill people.
We've seen the dm's that are sent to demoralize some great posters like Hix Hix which only sin, according to them, was to relay positive xbox content.
We see how they dogpile like little bitches on @Riky @MrFunSocks (btw idk how you guys do it to stand against that grain of shit but I salute you).

We see all that, and with the dopamine rush of reactions this type of behavior is enabled even further so it don't see it changing any time soon.
But right now it's really delightful to sit back and watch how they eat each other in that thread and I hope to god to see it more and more.
And I say that as owing both consoles and loving them equally, some of the guys don't even have one yet lol.

I know the Sony fanboys were dogpiling Hix Hix relentlessly right before he quit, but I never saw or heard anything about DMs. What's the deal on that?

I'm still bummed those lowlifes succeeded in driving him out. He was a great contributor to this thread and to this forum. I kept hoping he'd cool off for abit and come back but it doesn't look like that's going to happen.

Hey everyone
I cant believe i start a generation with a xbox console but i couldnt refuse the value proposition of the series console. I went back and fort between s and x since both are heavily available in where i live. (I live in istanbul and turkey is predominantly a playstation country)
I know later on i will buy a ps5 since i am invested in ps ecosystem and 1st party games thats why i went with series s.

First thing i did was to subscribe to gamepass.
What are the hidden gems i may miss?
Looking for your replies.
Cheers

If anyone really cares about reactions all you have to do is Stan PS5 hard. You will get 12-15 reactions per shit-post. Used to kinda annoy but I just said fuck it. I think both consoles are great. I am gonna stick with that.

Donut County is a great way to kill some time. Just got the 1000G in less than 3 hours, really enjoyed it. Very simple game with good humor that doesn't overstay its welcome, perfect Game Pass addition.
Sounds like the perfect follow up after I finish Little nightmares, which is also a neat little puzzle platformer. This is one of the best things about Gamepass, you end up playing games you would never do otherwise. I played Brothers a tales of two sons a few months back and thought it was one of the best games I've played in long time, the way the developers physically assigned loss was genius. Never would've played it unless for Gamepass.

Im not sure if this is the right place to ask , if is not sorry in advance.

Is anyone having this glitch / bug happening on the Main Title screen of Monster Hunter World (Downloaded via Game Pass)?
It seems to appear only in the Main Title screen, not in-game.
The strange things is that, like i showed in the video, if i bring up the Xbox quick menu, the glitching disappear.

So far I have tried:
- Changing HDMI port and cable (Is not a HDMI problem, the issue appear even if i record a clip)
- Disable the DVR feature (The old fix for the screen flashing problem)
- Completely shut down the console and unplug the power for 10 minute.
- Fully restore to Factory setting the console
- Uninstall and re-download the game
- I also tried multiple other game in my library, and no matter how many time i've boot and closed the game, no one have had any problem
(Doom Eternal, Gears 5, Forza 7, No Mans Sky, Control, Destiny 2, Code Vein, Ori 1 & 2, Nier Automata)

Nothing seems to solve the problem.


Monster Hunter World is not an Xbox Series X/S enhanced game, so maybe is a compatibility problem?
Any suggestion?

PS: Apologize if there are mistake in the writing, English is not my main language.

I am not sure if it was here or the Series X reddit, but somebody posted the exact same issue and everyone said it was just a backward compat issue on the series X and it only glitches on the menu screen but the game itself is fine. I will try to get a link

Really, I hope is like you said, if you can find the link to the Reddit post, I can't thank you enough... This morning I've posted in every Xbox related Reddit, to try and discuss the problem or at the very list inform myself about it. Im 3 days trying everything i can.

I wasn't able to find the post, but the mods in the series X subreddit routinely delete tech support posts as it is against the rules. Like I said though, I have seen this exact issue reported multiple times and the general consensus is the glitch just happens on the menu screen but not in the game itself.

I like all my consoles, but would consider Playstation my "main" one. I even bought Hitman 3 for it since I have the first 2 there. Clearly the numbers are better for HM3 on the Series X. Of course the usual people are trying to twist any minor detail they can to defend their favorite box. I'm not sure why the Sony fans can't just say the SX has a slight advantage here and is the better version. There's always a couple people that act like insufferable cunts in those threads.

I also know they exchange dms to coordinate those hameful demoralizing tactics. Cringe worthy.

Just tried The Medium. Wow, the atmosphere and the soundtrack in this game is simply amazing. Also, it's a proper old-school horror in Silent Hill style. I'm loving it so far.

Have to say, feeling kinda nostalgic playing games like this. :messenger_beaming:

Thats the nature of a Hardcore fanboy who'd go 6feet under for the Brand.

I salute you 🤜🤛 for owning both (myself aswell, since X360days) and being humbly open minded. Folks such as yourself are in single digits on here...the rest of Sony shills are loooooong gone damaged goods mentally and emotionally not stable. They can come into terms that XBOX exists and positively changing the game in competition.

Sea of Thieves. Digital crack.

Oh yes. I’m still taken aback at how much I love It. Could be that I’m a boat/ocean guy in “real life” and this is giving me my sea-faring fix during the dark and cold of Winter. I’m still pretty terrible at it though. For example, I’ve yet to sink a ship thats not my own.

On another topic...I’ve been quite disappointed to see an incursion of console warring into this thread that I’ve come to view as a place for Xbox positivity and advocacy. I used to read the “next gen” thread a lot in the lead up to the new console releases as there was a lot of good tech talk there. I’ve even posted a few times in there in the past. But now the place is such a hive of sad insecurity largely from one “side”. And it just seems to be getting worse as more and more evidence drops that Xbox is on the ascent. I will admit that I will still peek in there on occasion...much like you can’t help but look at a car crash at the side of the highway. I personally don’t engage in trashing a console I don’t own or don’t know much about. Never had a PlayStation. Ever. But I will talk up a console that I own and am enjoying the hell out of, as I am with the Series X. The one time I sort of engaged in some “console warring” was on a forum which shall remain unnamed. I had the audacity to say that the Series X packaging was better than PS5’s...and I subsequently got banned for that. :messenger_expressionless:

Anyone playing this at the moment? How's the content for an early access game? I know people loved it when it came out but it seems there isn't much to do.

I don't know what it's like right now personally, I'm currently playing Valhalla. I tried it when it first came to early access, it seemed cool but kept crashing so I decided to wait for the retail release to play it.

No Life of an old Creep shenanigans, thats what it is...I could just imagine stalking pm's being sent out behind the curtains on the daily basis..disgusting-horrible behavior.

Hix should've hit the mods with proof/screenshots. Was a good dude, enthusiastic, level headed and no disrespect to anyone.

Meaning to ask, what's the 411 on Valhalla, you feelin it? plateaus very quickly with repetitive content like Odyssey or complete opposite?

Haha a bit more harsh then I would say but perhaps you are right.

But it clear he sent out a ton of PMs. Weird.

The next comparison I am looking forward to is Control in March. I know it is basically just a repackaged last-gen game with a NG patch, but still, it will be a case of multi-plat ray tracing and I am curious to see if there is any difference between the two consoles on that front.

The NG version of Cyberpunk will be a big one too, whenever that ends up dropping.
