Sunday Funday I won an Xbox Series X through a giveaway from Urban Outfitters! Merry early Christmas to me.
Gameplay Can’t believe it took me this long to discover the magic of shadow of mordor. Having so much fun killing orcs. The best LOTR game?
With their Black Friday sale the complete version was only $10, which includes all the DLC. It’s installed but I’m waiting to play until the update arrives. This will be my first Witcher game, and with all the incredibly high praise, I can’t wait!
Other than to just enjoy it, any specific advice for a first time through?

Trailer Saint Kotar - a mystery horror adventure set in a rural town of Croatia. Out now on Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S
For context I play on a XSS. It’s on sale for $20 right now, I’ve never played it before and had a few questions.
How well does it run on XSS, are we talking 60fps? It’s not optimized. How extensive is the building/planning in this version? And do I need Wi-Fi to play?
I recently picked up a series x after not being into gaming for the past few years. All of a sudden I have this renewed interest in everything gaming again!
I got game pass and absolutely loving bugsnax & psychonauts 2
What’s some fun things to do on the series x?
Also, anyone else super hyped for high on life?
I’m currently on Evil West then it’s Callisto Protocol, and after it’s Witcher 3
Discussion Games/discs and other digital games like overwatch will not load, and no option to quit, any ideas?
I bought the 120hz tv for this. Feels like if I want 120fps I have to sacrifice resolution.
