I agree with Jan Meja's commentary on the finale at 33:00. The mission of bringing the intel over to the Federation feels kind of silly after finding out what the player needs to do in the finale.

That debacle with asteroid fields at 28:20 is why I make save backups when my ship doesn't have Long-Ranged Scanners.

1. I have not yet begun to fight


2. Never give up, never surrender


This is the FTL two-step. Great to see all the fans here!

I like it, if only for the system of having crew members running around; the new race is going to make things even more interesting for me.

Yet, I really, really, do not like the rest of the gameplay. It's too luck-dependent.

I love this game. Gameplay is so addictive, It's even fun to lose. Just start again and enjoy exploring the universe. I can't recommend this game enough.

@Gelugon_baat @zerohournow  False! He just opted for Ion blast II over TWO burst laser I! 


They might as well get in a land war in asia, or get in a battle of wits against a sicilian, with death on the line!

So? Dude's still playing while streaming. You try thinking over whether to use that over the other while streaming your own playthrough.

I would tell you this too - I have watched people's recordings where they pause the game to mull over decisions. Their videos are boring.

Besides, if I want a strategy guide and dudes doing awesomely, I look at actual strategy guide videos made by fans - not a preview video by two show producers working for CBSI.
