Re: Ion bomb and why it shouldn't be

No one is saying the Ion bomb is bad. I believe what the OP is saying is that it is too good. I sort of see his point. With just an Ion Bomb and a Burst Mk. II, you can beat the boss given enough missiles and time.

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

I was playing as rock A. Made it to 2 jumps away from the boss. Throughout the game I had seen two weapons that didn't use missiles, a found halberd beam and a store pike beam.
