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.

Yeah, it must be exhausting getting insanely overpaid for sitting around and talking about dumb shit for a few hours a day.
He makes a video every single day. With edits and needing to generate content for it. Everyone burns out eventually.
It's ok to be jealous.. I am too.

So to save yourself from having to download 105 GB for RDR2, you now get to download ~ 800GB to play it all the way through in 4K, at lesser visuals and with worse controls. And you pay the same price for the privilege.
Stadia better really quickly ditch that whole Pay Full Price idea of theirs, or they're dead in the water by the time Xcloud hits.
(And it's Google, they could easily just throw 10 billion at this, buy every game for an entire year and put them on their subscription service as exclusives. We've already seen that publishers are totally on board with the whole exclusives idea.)

One thing I really liked about this game was you could build a house in the open world, not some boring instanced area, and then you can farm stuff there that can be harvested after some number of real world hours. Then the final step is combining ingredients into trade packs that have to be moved by cars across the planet. The further you go, the more it is worth.
I never got into the pvp aspect, but you can make even more if you put them on ships and cross the ocean, but the ocean is a pvp zone. So you might spend a week building dozens of these trade packs, load them up on your ship, and if you make it to the other side make a ton of money. But if the other faction or a pirate discovers you, you could lose it all.
It probably isn't worth a second play, but it was a unique game for sure.
You mean like Farmville?

I loved OMD1 and 2, played them a ton, even convinced my COOP people to play them a bit with me, but none of us wanted the F2P version. The sooner all these F2P microtransaction cash grabs, and mobile spinoffs die, the better.
