Well how about this for random:
Good gawd, I want to like X: Rebirth but that game tries its best to not be liked. Makes me want to hop back into X3 (the previous X game), but that has its own frustrations...horrible UI and once you get built up you can't actually make lasting changes or carve out a little place of the galaxy for yourself. And the funny thing is the X-Rebirth UI is a lot slicker, but good lord its just as bad, even worse in some aspects - and its not just interactions, you're cruising and want to open your map to make a course correction, your engines turn off automatically. Why??? Gah! And seemingly in order to determine who has what to trade, you have to go through a grueling "mini game" where you have to scan dozens of points on each station...
I really wish there was a game like Mount and Blade but for space sims. Got mad enough to just go back to programming.
