I would absolutely recommend this game. The soundtrack is amazing and if you like bleak, post-apocalyptic settings, this will be right up your alley.

Damn, that's a huge increase in wattage. How thick are those new cables going to be.
Can someone explain to me how a USB-C connector (not the USB-C standard) is more better than USB Micro-B.

Isn't there a way to hack around the FB requirement for the original?

I'm getting super tempted to pick up Valheim. Just finished Creaks and it was excellent.
Hopefully you enjoy it more than I did, if you do. I'm finding Valheim to be sorta boring. The building isn't bad, but running around collecting resources is mind numbing. The combat is... overrated, in my opinion. Maybe it's much better with coop, but I was leveling up my guy solo, since everybody else is already level 9000, and their worlds overall are far more difficult. Also, difficulty is effectively gated by gathered resources, to upgrade your gear to unlock the next zone.
Maybe I'll go back to it after the official release, but I doubt it.

Elite Dangerous in vr is supposed to be pretty impressive. One day when I get the equipment, I look forward to firing this up. Hope the game servers are still running by then... It is a shame there's no offline mode.

I am truly looking forward to this as I tremendously enjoyed the first one and it was such an underrated gem.

So, have you played it in the last 11 months? Care to give a brief review/rating?

I played the original game - now you can stone me, if you want - and liked it.
Who threw that rock?!

So I've tried Borderlands 2 several times, and I get 10 hours or so into the story and it never seems to open up and I get stuck in some snowy area. I thought I've heard that at some point it becomes more like an ARPG where you grind for better loot. I've seen people with thousands of hours into it. Is there a different mode or do people just do the storyline over and over?
The story is way better than the typical ARPG. It has a story! It is well delivered as you play with good characters and voice acting. Is it some shakesperean feat? No. But a pretty good comedic one.
Yes you replay the story over and over for better loot, that is typical of ARPG's.
What are you expecting of this genre? What other ARPG's are doing something radically different? If it all ended at the end of the story, then the quest for more loot ends, game over, people complain.
And finally, yes there are people that don't like it and you can find someone else to agree with you, like any game ever. It is a widely respected and successful game. I have yet to try BL3.

I had a blast with the original. I don't think I ever made it to end-game, but I definitely had an army of hundreds following me around conquering much of the lands. I think, close to end-game, either I stalled or the game did, and progress slowed to nothing despite fighting staying the same.
Was one of my favorites for the year.
I'm more hesitant about this. The original was super wonky, but that was endearing. There were bugs. Logic was completely nil, making some battles feel out of Monty Python. Or, maybe, it felt like a 90s EA NHL game - you just keep doing the same move, and the AI keeps falling for it, and if you mess up it's not that you were outsmarted, but you simply messed up. The arena fights, in particular, seemed to be mostly me running away like a lunatic until I got the right weapon, then turning around and slaughtering everyone (or something, it's been a while, but I seem to remember spending much of my time in those fleeing, yet also seem to remember them generally being very easy.)
This seems to me too polished, with too good graphics, and a lot added in that could detract from the core gameplay I loved.
Or maybe it's perfect. Let the reviews roll in (but I'd probably wait till it leaves EA.)

I wonder how Egosoft feels.. now that Avorion is out..and is just vastly superior in every way aside graphics....
Just fine. I'm sure Avorion is a great game but modular ship building was never what X was about.
If you look at the changelogs for 3.0 you can see they are huge? This will be a massive update of the base game and (just my opinion) make X4 one of the most solid space games on the market. It did take awhile to get there though.
Would that be a good time to finally pull the trigger on this? I've been watching and waiting for it to finally be ready enough to buy.
