Damn overwatch special events taking my money like a sucker just cause I want 1 skin. And I said I'd never pay for loot boxes. I hate myself a little...

Okay, so after remaining unsuccessful in locating my original 360 headsets, I've finally decided to cave and get the Polk Melees.

Couple of questions:

1) Do I have to buy them from Polk Media directly (a la official seller on Amazon) or can I buy them New from a reliable seller on eBay?
2) How hard are they to set up with a 360 given they seemingly rely on the audio jack on the 360 itself rather than the controller? Is the headset wired straight to the box?
3) Do the different coloured models have design differences or are the differences purely cosmetic?
4) How hard is it to get the adapter and boom mic from Polk's CS? How do they verify it was bought new?
5) Are people still enjoying their headsets (comfy, working right, etc) or should I just shell a bit more for Turtle Beaches or something?

Thanks.


I bought mine from eBay and received the adapter.
No idea.
Pretty certain all the same just cosmetic.
Very easy.
I use mine daily at work 7 hours and still like them

Yeti Winston. I finally got 3000 coins to just buy it. I just need to ignore future events.

Heart of the Reich can suck a chode. Fortunately the game broke, I sat there for 20 minutes picking off enemies at a key tough point in the level and the game "forgot" to spawn more enemies, and I was able to walk right through. Strangely enough, the tank level I thought was one of the easier ones (I think that was right after Burn 'Em Out if I'm not mistaken, which was a horrific level also). You just have to take it really. Damn. Slow. And let your teammates do most of the killing, like every CoD game.
 
CoD2 was much harder than WaW I thought, but the difficulty came from excellent/tough level design and enemy spawn locations, rather than mapping B as the "receive grenade button" like they did with WaW. I felt much more victorious from finishing CoD2 than I did WaW.
 
And I 100'd all the campaign achievements in WaW for nothing, because I'm so horrible at zombies that a full 100% just isn't doable for me. I hate luck-based achievements, and that's all they are.

Yeah I felt the tank mission was the easiest of them.

"Blowtorch and corkscrew" was probably the worst for me. Heart of the Reich/Downfall after that.

I don't think the time played counter in Dead Rising 4 works right. I'm solidly 30-35 hours sunk in to it right now but the counter is at 75. When I started tonight it was at 45 which was already high.

That's weird, even more so if it's counting in the background while other apps are in use. Not sure how it went from 45 to 75 in 3 hours real time though.

I got that 1 a few days after the event started but I ended up not getting Lucio/Tracer/Torbjorn/Zenyatta/Sombra skins and I bought a few others with my coins.

I really wanted that Santa and Nutcracker skin but I'm not dropping real money.

Just wanted to point out to/remind everyone -- the Year End sales prices are still up until tomorrow IIRC.  If you don't like the Weekly deals, you can go back to the Year End ones.

To make you feel bad, I got it on my free box. Then I bought some boxes and didn't get the Reaper one, but I barely had enough coins to buy it.
