http://www.ftlgame.com ... this is my Game Of The Year So Far

You run a spaceship. You have adventures.

It's a Roguelike/RPG but where you're a spaceship. Combat is really balanced, the difficulty is high but fair, and games only take a few hours.

Get it. GET IT FOR ME.

"More than any other game I've played, more than the incredibly complex X series, more than the fanboy-titillating Star Trek: Bridge Commander, FTL made me feel like I was in command of a starship. Or, rather, a series of constantly exploding starships. If that's a something you'd be into, and I certainly don't want to know you if it isn't, then do yourself a favor and grab FTL."

Got it the day it came out... then Borderlands 2. :coookieesssss:
But it's definitely a highly replayable game.

Pretty awesome game. I think the best I've done so far is using the Engi ship. The Rockman ship is an absolute beast, though.

Those are the only two I've unlocked so far. :coookieesssss:

Man, this game kicks my ass.

I got the stealth cruiser tonight, though, so that's pretty exciting. But I was on a mission to get the Crystal ship, and I think having the quest marker pop up for the stealth cruiser screwed me up and didn't make the activation switch for the crystal sector come up in the Rock Homeworld. Which is kinda bullshit.

But, still, stealth cruiser. So, hey, silver lining, at least.

Got to the end boss on the Stealth A, couldn't punch through that fucker's shields. Stalemate while I slowly whittled him down in Phase 1 for about a half hour...then when phase 2 hit, he just wrecked my shit to no end.

Fuck this gaaame t('-'t)

...I have to beat it, though. It's taunting me now.

Advanced Edition and the iPad version are both coming out on April 3rd.

For anyone who hasn't been following, Advanced Edition is a free update to the game that adds a ton of new content. The iPad version will cost $10 and include this update, too. The update includes a new race, new subsystems, and they're making a Hard mode in the game, too.

Also, in other news, I beat the game for the second time using Mantis B. Holy SHIT that ship is powerful. The first win I got was using the Stealth Cruiser A. This game is crazy hard.

If you don't know, Chris Avvalone (or however you spell his name) is doing a bunch of the writing for the new content.

tips: max cloak and shields. only use your cloak right before his missile barrage hits. and i mean right before. as close to actually being hit by the first missile as you can. use emp and beam weapons. shut down it's drones and fast firing weapons first to protect your shields.

I've gotten three wins now.

Max or level 3 shields, and almost maxed out engines will do the trick, it seems.

I did the cheesy win by doing what Reddit told me to: level 1 cloak to dodge the special attacks (it regens on the same timer as the flagship's special powers), level 1 porter to kill the weapons, and then I horded the shit out of missiles and just blasted the hell out of their shield. I ended it by sending a boarding crew on to finish the job after I killed the entire crew.

Second win was with Mantis B, I just tore that shit apart. I ended up just setting it on fire, and watching it burn in the end, because I was untouchable.

I just beat it a third time with AE activated and the federation B cruiser. I had 2 charge lasers and 2 Mark II blast lasers. God that was so OP. I loved it. I made that ship into swiss cheese. :\m/:


Also, this might be my favorite dumb thing in AE so far:
