I have just finished playing Borderlands 1 (again) and have started Borderlands 2 (again). I have played the first 3 Borderlands for hundreds of hours. I still think they are fun games that don't take themselves too seriously. Having said that the 4th Borderlands holds no interest for me as I think it will be just more of the same.
Why didn't you tell me! I would have joined you. Also who is your main for each game?

Wise decision to avoid Borderlands 3.

I was enjoying it in the beginning, but the fight mechanics, particularly the bow, are awful which completely ruined it for me. I've pretty much stopped doing side quests and just going to finish the main story line.

That's unusual for me, I'm usually a completest.

I love Borderlands. I've played 1 and 2 a couple of times solo, and still play it online occasionally with my 3 sons. That was why I was trying to reload it. I guess I'll buy it at some point when it's on sale.

(thinking out loud)

Has anyone used the 49" Asus monitor (1080p)? I'm looking for the cheapest wide screen for sim racing. I've only used VR and a little hesitant to move onto a monitor, hence looking for the lowest cost option to get my pecker wet.

The new Samsung G9 is ideal, but that's a lot of cheddar for something I might not like (racing on screen).

Edge cases/specificity will likely not help you in the general world.

I.E paying for coaching trying to attain a 500lb back squat will likely not help you live a healthier life and there are no statistics to support that it will. Paying for coaching to hit a 300lb clean and jerk will not help you be healthier. Will paying for a trainer if you're a complete novice help you be healthier? Sure.

Spending money on coaching to cut tiny amounts of time off your driving will likely not help you become a better driver on the street. Will coaching help you be a better driver if you're a complete novice? Sure.

There are diminishing returns once you hit a certain point in any hobby, but people invest in it because they like that hobby you dunce.

hobby1[ hob-ee ]SHOW IPA
SEE SYNONYMS FOR hobby ON THESAURUS.COM
noun, plural hob·bies.
an activity or interest pursued for pleasure or relaxation and not as a main occupation:

here's the definition of hobby for the smooth brain.
And there you go looking like a butthurt asshat writing a whole ass essay because someone on the internet got you going.

Additionally, if you had even half a brain, you'd have bought a 5700 and flashed the XT bios onto it and skipped water cooling because it's a waste.

GG, nerd. I guess I know who an easy target is from now on.

monoprice is dropping a new 49" ultrawide soon, keep your eyes peeled!

Good to see you still don't know shit, your clap back came like a week late, were you researching flashing 5700s? That's actually what I recommend to most people now. I've had the xt from day one, so flashing was an unknown at that point in time. Combine that with the combo discount of purchasing the 3000 series and 5700 concurrently and it becomes a wash. Also, the $50 premium is miniscule when you consider the xt is binned a bit better and will sustain 2100+ MHz on good cooling.

I've already stated water is more of a hobby in and of itself and more for aesthetics/acoustics, any performance gains even on flagship hardware is minuscule. Like what do you not comprehend?

I got the Asus at Microcenter for $800. After using the monitor for a week, I prefer VR for iRacing over the monitor. Keeping for sims like ACC or Dirt that don't have great VR support. I'm glad I didn't go for the more expensive Samsung G9 (coming out soon).
