Review: Fable 2 (Xbox 360) Played On Xbox Series S

Game: Fable 2 on Xbox Series S Developer: Lionhead Studios Publisher: Microsoft Series: Fable Platform: Xbox Series S (Emulating Xbox 360) Release: 21 October 2008 (NA) Genre(s):ARPG/Adventure Mode(s):Single-Player/ Online Co-Op Rating: M for Mature Most Recent Playthrough: JAN/FEB 2022 (24 hours [single-player] played this playthrough) *Minimal Spoilers Ahead!! This review may contain some mild Spoilers but I try to avoid mentioning anything too specific.... Xbox Series S Enhancements   Running the game on the Xbox Series S includes an FPS Boost that does not do a very good job at all. The game is riddled with frame drops/stutters that also result in serious input lag during heavy battles. There is no upscaling with the graphics like you would get with the Series X. If say the game is playable yet frustrating.  Similar Games Fable Anniversary (Game Nearly Unplayable On Xbox Series S), Fable 3, Kynseed (PC), Kingdoms of Amalur: The Reckoning

Arctis 3 Console Edition Wired Gaming Headset [Review] (steelseries)

Arctis 3 (steelseries) Wired Console Edition Gaming Headset MSRP: $69.99 Price Paid: $39.99* @Amazon.com Devices Tested On: Xbox Series S, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, MacBook Pro, PC https://steelseries.com/gaming-headsets/arctis-3-console-edition?color=white *Reviewed for value at $39.99 pricepoint! I would not recommend these at anything above $40-$50 range at this point though. I recently reviewed the Arctis 1 headset (5/10 score) which cost $49.99 and was not pleased with the results. This headset is better in most categories.  I like to Score reviews 0-100 or 0-10 with 70/100 and 7/10 being barely average.  I Disagree With Every Statement Here & These Were Made at MSRP Link To Arctis 1 Review Overall Score 7/10 ( Barely Average) The Good 🔥Overall Sound quality is good! 🔥Mid-Range Sounds Are Good  🔥Sound Clarity Is Good The Bad 👎Microphone is Below Average! 👎Uncomfortable while wearing eyeglasses! 👎Overall Design & Comfort Is Not Good! 👎MS

Top 10 Dollar for Dollar Sub $100 Handheld Game Consoles TODAY

Things change rapidly in the retro handheld console world so this list will only be applicable for a short time. Community support and available modifications to firmwares, software etc also continually change how good or bad certain systems are. I generally go by the import prices not by the reseller prices. Resellers are often just charging to add ROMs which is highly unethical not to mention illegal.  This post is my personal opinion and links do not benefit me.  Retroid Pocket 2 $80  You simply cannot beat the value of the RP2 for $80 as long as you don't mind Android and don't mind having to tinker with the system a lot to get it all set up. This is a system for tech savvy people not beginners to emulation.  Retroid Pocket 2 Review   Anbernic RG351P $95 I'm not a big fan of the screen size with this one but community support has been making this a better option all the time. Great choice for emulation gamers of all levels. No built in WiFi is th
