Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Gen 2

Whether you playing on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, or Windows PC one of the best gaming headsets is the Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Gen 2. Its price, system compatibility, comfort, and features make it a well-rounded pair of headphones, regardless of your needs.

The Turtle Beach Stealth 700 comes into variants: One that wirelessly connects directly to the Xbox Series X and another that requires a dongle that works with both the PS5 and Switch. Regardless of which you pick, getting them to work with your system is pain-free.

However, the standout connectivity feature is the added Bluetooth audio. After configuring the headset on an Android or iOS device, you can use Bluetooth audio independent of the audio coming from your gaming console. That means you can stream your own music from your phone while still hearing the game audio. More importantly, that means you can hop on a Discord chat or even a phone call and hear your game perfectly at the same time.

My preferred way to play games like Pokémon Unite or Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is to pop on these headphones while I’m on the couch, fire up my game, and connect to a Discord call on my phone. The two volume dials on the side of the headphones allow me to independently mix both the game and Bluetooth audio so I can perfectly tune what I hear. It’s been a great way to easily add voice chat to my Nintendo Switch gameplay sessions since the console has no easy to accommodate it. —Jeff Ramos

As such, the titular hero’s four underpants – the game’s version of hit points – are usually plenty to get most players through the adventure, especially considering how frequent health refills are across levels. But if you’re looking to add some additional pairs of underoos to your health pool, you won’t want to miss the game’s couple of hidden health upgrades (golden underpants). Read on to find out where to get them.

Phil Spencer says ‘2022 was too light on games’ – PC Gamer

In 2021, Microsoft’s gaming division published games like Forza Horizon 5, Halo Infinite, Age of Empires 4, and Psychonauts 2. It was declared Metacritic’s publisher of the year (opens in new tab) thanks to its games receiving an average metascore of 87.4, helped also to the Xbox Series X port of Microsoft Flight Simulator releasing that year. While in 2022 Microsoft backed some well-received smaller games—Grounded, Pentiment, and As Dusk Falls—its biggest releases, Starfield and Redfall, were delayed into this year.

Xbox stans weren’t happy about this, though I think maybe we could do with less rushed videogame releases and maybe less videogames overall. During a recent inter…….
