Very sad that Risk of Rain 2 isn't an option. By far the most fun I have had in 2019, and the game is still in early access.

I play 95% undocked. It is really the major appeal of the system.

@beachthunder: Do it! RE7 is a very good survival horror game (infinitely better than that crap "The Evil Within"). My second favorite RE in the series (Behind RE2 of course). Yup, even like it better than RE4.

I am with Alexw00d. Why are you upgrading, especially those components (mobo/cpu)? You said you were on a budget, why not save the dough for a later build? You have a K series, just overclock that beast and you should be good to go for a while.

I have a 4k HDR TV and the ASUS Ultra Wide at 1440 and 100 Hz (G-Sync). I vastly prefer to game on my ultra-wide. It is well worth the dough and, yes, the extra frames do make a difference, especially with no screen tearing. My recommendation...go Ultra Wide.

Whoa...$150 is, in my opinion, too high a price for this thing. As mentioned earlier, if you look hard enough you can get new 3DS for about $20 more. No thank you. When I saw the original promotional video, I thought to myself, man this will be a great $99 system. $150 is way too high.

Really depends. Is this going to be used as a console display, or a PC display? If it is for a PC, there really is no question, you should go for a very good IPS Monitor for a couple of reasons. 1) Response time is still noticeably better on the display and 2) refresh rate is, for most gamers, much more important than resolution. If your PC can push the FPS to require a higher refresh rate monitor, that is the way to go.

Of course all those benefits go out the window with most consoles, because of the limitation of the hardware.

Oh brother. I love the Borderland series (and 2 in particular) because it is a fantastically good time with fun characters and enemies, and it scratches my loot itch. Who really gives a rat's rump that it's story is sub-par. People that love it don't play it for the story. Sometimes (I know...mind blown), I play games to have fun, and Borderlands 2 and to some extent, the Pre-Sequel, are great fun. Having said that, I felt the same way the OP felt going from the Pre-sequel back to Borderlands 2. I loved the movement in the Pre-Sequel, and it made it hard to go back to Borderlands 1 or 2.

Oh, if you want great story in a Borderlands game, check out Telltale's best game Tales from the Borderlands. Great music, great writing, and for all you story whores, a great story as well. Enjoy!

EDIT: Also try not to use an appeal to the people as a defense of something. Such a claim is a fallacy; you can't say that 'well if everyone likes it, it must be good'. That's a red herring and has no bearing on the quality of the product.

I wasn't trying to use it as a defense of anything. I was merely pointing out the simple fact that labeling anything as "bad" is callous, lazy, or at the very least misleading. Bad...bad at what? Bad at being an RPG? Bad at making you feel that gleeful feeling you get when you played previous Bethesda games? Bad at being a great building sim? Fine if your answer is yes to all of the above, but to label anything as generally "bad", even in a title is unfair. We seem to do it far to often. The OP, granted, did go into detail for reasons why he didn't like the game (which I respect), however I just took exception to the over-reaching generalities in the title of the thread.

I think a player's approach to the game dictates their enjoyment of a game. I think it is unfair to label a game "bad" when so many people enjoy it. I think with almost all Bethesda games, you get out what you put into the game. It isn't going to guide you along, dictating a great story, and hold your hand to make sure you experience the best parts of the game. That has never been the case with any of their games. What I enjoy most about these games is "exploration" (and who the heck labeled these games as RPG's?). This game is made to scratch the itch of people that enjoy exploring a gaming world that set's up interesting back stories for different locations. I love finding a town run by robots, and exploring vaults to see what experiments have been performed on the residents thereof.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time with this game, and applaud Bethesda for what they have done. It isn't the best game I played this year (Undertale), nor is it the most engaging (Hearthstone). But it was a good time for $60.
