Re: Unlocking new ships is way too difficult

That might be very well be true but I'm not sure...it is so subjective for me I suppose it is difficult to accurately judge.

Re: Unlocking new ships is way too difficult

Noel: I can see the merits of your idea but I think it would be frustrating (for me personally) to base a game on unlocking the ships because it is indeed very random. Don't get me wrong, love the randomness of the game, but still, wouldn't want to base a play-through's goal on something mostly depe...

Re: Unlocking new ships is way too difficult

I would agree that the frequency of the ship unlock events might be increased just a notch. Here's where I am with the game: 49 hours played (I swear I might have left it on at some point, seems crazy) and have yet to unlock half the ships. I'm sort of played-out of FTL (certainly getting my money w...

Re: My 2 cents as a KS backer and fan of the game

Ya totally concur to all of this! There are more than enough games that offer no challenge, no randomness, and the ability to save anywhere. FTL is precisely as fun as it is because of these characteristics, not in spite of them. I'm really glad that the dev's had the vision of the game as they did ...

Re: FTL for iOS (iPad)??? Touch FTL rocks!

This would be totally awesome. I have no intention of ever buying an iPad but still, I could see how FTL would be fantastic fit for such a device.

Don't understand why some people don't like FTL's gameplay

I'm really surprised by how many people are complaining that FTL is too hard, too random, and there is no save/load mechanic. These are three major selling points for me. Let me briefly address them: 1) Too hard Sure the game is too hard at first. After you get better at, you'll find it easy. I find...

Re: Man this game is hard

I'm really genuinely shocked by how many complain about this games difficulty and how random the game is. Both of these are huge pluses for me -- in fact they are primary draws. Perhaps it is partly a generational thing indeed. Most games are too easy these days IMHO. I personally find most modern g...

Re: FTL, how did it gain so much publicity?

I think an understated part of it just the gameplay alone. I believe there is huge under-served gaming audience out there that couldn't care less about playing the same types of games over and over again, which most mainstream releases are. FTL is just a straight-forward good concept for a game, uni...

Re: First toughts on FTL (I'm not pew pewing anyone)

I find it so odd how many people are not fans of the game's difficulty. I must be an odd gamer, because I think the difficulty of the game is one of things that I really like most about FTL. In fact, I wish it was harder, as I can beat it most of the times I play now.
