I’ve been quiet lately, after the appearance of X: Rebirth earlier this month. I’ve been playing it heavily, and am here to give you my opinion on the game, its current state, and what it means for both the future of the franchise, and EgoSoft. I am going to tell you what has been done with the game, what will be done and what I’d like to be done.
Also, being that there’s so many things to touch on in this complex game, and with all the new patches, I may update this review from time to time. Leave feedback in the comments and I’ll look into and address stuff.
First, before you read any further, you should have checked out the new trailer and videos on the official X Universe Channel. Yes, it has a release date set for this year and this planet, but America is getting it after everybody else. 😦 xD I’m kidding it’s just a few days. Oh wait, that’s like five more Guild Wars levels. Oh man we’re getting screwed dangit Germany! It’s in November sometime. Look it up.

Since playing last, my brain has been defragged and I’ve re-remembered what X3 is all about.

Thanks to reader feedback on my X3 articles (which I am very thankful for), I have begun editing my X3 articles and other articles for better formatting. I now include several headers in each article to make it easier to read and find where you were, and they’re (hopefully) humorous, which will help you remember them too, and give you insight into the cool things I am about to do (such as whacking into stations at full speed in X3 with my Discoverer).
Thanks for all of the feedback through the EgoSoft forums, Reddit, and here! Keep it comin’!
I now have too many articles to fit in my EgoSoft forum signature, so I’m making an index so that it’s easier to navigate my X3 articles both internally from my blog and externally coming from another site.
