    I assume if a grown up man has a huge SW action figure collection, he is not a pussy magnet exactly. He married the pussy he could get.

    A real man finds the right woman and by the time they move in together he's already persuaded her to start her own Star Wars action figure collection...

    I briefly tried to get my wife into gaming but looking back I'm glad I failed, because I don't want to share my PC or pay to build a second one.

    Wait till your kids are into gaming - I can barely use my TV/PC till late at night when everyone else is abed.

    I got my wife into D&D and she started collecting Lego after I got back into it when the kids started playing with it. Her "taste" in computer games is completely different to mine though, but luckily she's so busy these days she mainly plays mobile games and doesn't contaminate my PC/Consoles with her crap.

    I'm PC only, so as much as it would pain me to do so maybe the smart play is making the kids console gamers to avoid that.

    There are some not-terrible games on console (Bloodborne was good as is the recent Demon Souls remake for instance). I like console for 3rd person action games.

    PC Master Race all the way for FPS or CRPG games though.

    I'm not knocking consoles, I just have too many games to play as it is and none of their exclusives really ring my bell enough to get one. Honestly the console exclusive I wish I could play the most is an ancient one, The Darkness. Maybe that works on a PS3 emulator at this point.

    Restocks are happening (at least in North America). I managed to order an Xbox Series X from a big-box retailer today. Should have it on Monday.

    Want to be a decent wireless headset to use with my series x. Currently looking at the hyperx cloudx flight wireless set, anyone have any experience with hyperx headsets? Also any other recommendations?

    HyperX headsets are rather good (the higher end Cloud series and Revolver)... when using a decent sound card. All their USB DACs and wireless receivers kinda suck balls in sound quality, but then again so do all similar devices from other "gaming" headsets. The Cloud series headsets also tend to be in the smallish-medium earcup side with somewhat narrow headbands, so depending on the user they may be a bit uncomfortable after a while. If it's just for games and short sessions (1-2 hours tops) then go for it.

    Good advice, i have rather big ears, thats actually something I never had in consideration while looking for a console headset (never had an over the ear headphones before, always in ear).

    The only crap parts was John commanding terminator to NOT KILL. Then again, there were some funny parts due to that. Give & Take. The first movie fitting into a sci-fi/horror genre.

    Nah, I wouldn't have it any other way. The T-800 being ordered to not kill anyone was a fun little twist. It's hilarious how he just kneecaps everybody. The OG Terminator is also one of my all-time favorites.

    I use a pair of Cloud IIs as my daily driver (coming from a Revolver). The Revolver has much more comfortable earcups due to their large size. I have normalish size ears, and the Cloud II earcups seat right on my ears unless I fiddle with the cups while the Revolver ones completely cover them. This causes discomfort after 40min or so of continuous use and I have to take a break. The headband also tends to start to dig into my head after an hour or so and since it's rather narrow it causes discomfort as well. The Revolver has none of those issues, but it's a much heavier headset and the weight is not as evenly distributed (I could never use it for more than an hour straight).
    Look for something that has 50mm or similar sized earcups and with a wide headband if you plan to use it for long sessions. Sadly I think that will limit your options in terms of "gaming" headsets.

    Examples of earpad sizes
