I've spent a handful of hours in it and haven't managed to accomplish much of anything. Definitely the kind of game you need to dedicate a lot of time to. I bought a hotas stick last year and was waiting for something like Elite, and both the controls and the visuals of the game are really great. Also, there is a combat demo(originally for pre-orders) you can find if you look around a bit.

Just came across this and thought it might interest folks here. There's a decently playable Windjammers clone on iOS called Power Disc. My brief time with it seemed ok considering the touch controls.

I liked it quite a bit. I think I was in the mood for exactly this kind of game when I happened to try it out so it worked for me. As others have said, the soundtrack alone really makes it something worth trying. Story gets very interesting in spots.

There's a fuse issue with those receivers that can be fixed with some very simple soldering. There are videos and article out there showing you how, I was able to fix mine a few years ago. I think Vinny went through this at some point as well.

I've only played a bit of it, but Neverwinter seems like it could be decent.

If I find myself banging against a boss for too long and it's either grind out some levels or summon, I'll often summon. I do try not to though.

Really thought I was on a decent path and then woke up one day feeling like I had fallen way behind. Trying to do what I can to make up for it now.

Mine seems to be pretty nice.

Yep happens to me all the time. Something will come along and grab you eventually. Like Sinusoidal said, games aren't a job, play when it sounds fun.

I end up tired of almost every album I get really into. Then I take a year or two off from it then rediscover it after.
