Get an Xbox One X on Amazon with your choice of game at a huge discount

The Xbox One X is the most powerful game console currently available, and it’s capable of playing several of the biggest AAA games at 4K resolution and 60 frames per second. If you’ve been holding off on purchasing the system so far, Amazon currently has a huge deal that will get you not just the console, but a great new game to go along with it.

On Amazon right now, the Xbox One X 1TB console is available for just $350, down from its standard $500 price. It includes either Gears 5, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, or NBA 2K20, all at the same price. You can even get the limited-edition Gears 5 bundle with a special console at the same price if you’re a major fan of the series.

You can’t go wrong with any of the bundled games. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is one of our favorites from last year, with gameplay that blends elements from series like Uncharted and Dark Souls, along with plenty of fan service for longtime Star Wars enthusiasts. Gears 5, meanwhile, is an excellent entry in the shooter franchise that takes some bold risks, including a psychological horror element and the new cooperative Escape mode.

Alongside the console and game, you’ll also get a free month of Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Game Pass, and EA Access. This means you’ll be able to play hundreds of more games for free during your first month, and you can decide which one will be your next obsession after you finish the bundled game. Xbox Game Pass adds new titles on a continuous basis, both from Microsoft’s own library as well as third-party publishers.

When the Xbox Series X launches later this year, you should be able to carry over all your Xbox One games onto it, as well. The console supports full backward compatibility with the current-generation console, and it will also support the same backward compatibility for previous Xbox systems that the Xbox One does today. At launch, it also won’t have any exclusives right away, so new Xbox One X owners won’t be missing out on the latest games.

Meta Quest 2 -- $199, was $200

Even though the Meta Quest 3 came out quite recently, the Meta Quest 2 is still a pretty powerful contender, especially since it has a wider library and app support than the Quest 3 currently has. Even more so, the Quest 2 is a lot cheaper than the Quest 3, and with the latest permanent discount down to just $200, that's a whole $300 or so difference from the Quest 3. Of course, the Quest 3 does have more advanced AR and slightly better performance with software and Wi-Fi, but that may not be worth the extra cost for some. Either way, be sure to check out the breakdown between Quest 2 and Quest 3 to get a better sense of what you should pick up.

Hellblade 2 struggles to balance a serious message and video game tropes
Senua stares at a burning tree in Hellblade 2.

For the first two hours of Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2, I was fully transported into Senua's headspace. Every aspect of the sequel's design was working in concert to pull me into her mind and never let me go. And then I found my first collectible.

I missed out on the first Hellblade, but was familiar enough to know what the general consensus was regarding its strengths and weaknesses. I knew it was a narrative-driven game about a very serious mental health condition. What I never heard about, and thus didn't know to expect until I came across it, was something as "gamey" as collectibles. In most games, collectibles can be a way to reward exploration, add lore to the world, or simply be an added objective for those who want to do and see it all. In the case of Hellblade 2, however, it's one small piece of a larger issue: The series' video game instincts betraying the serious tone and subject matter that the rest of the subversive experience is so committed to.
Wall hugging
At first, Hellblade 2 gripped me like few games have. You already know just how impressive this game is from a visual standpoint from trailers and screenshots, but it's the 3D audio that pushes it into a league of its own. That first scene of Senua nearly drowning in the ocean while competing voices attempt to encourage and demoralize her instantly established an empathetic link between us. The tight perspective of the camera, the framing of Senua and her detailed facial animations, and the lack of a head-up display (HUD) all made sure that link remained unbroken.
