For a moment i read it as TFL, and was expecting pictures of Dwayne and Bill.
Must every post here be in meter and verse?
Poems oft make me swear oaths and then curse.

This game is so good.

loss would have been a great subject for the poems. The game is filled with a great sense of loss. You always die, no matter how amazing you think your crew and ship is. The game always throws a curve ball at you that hits you square in the nuts and then you lose everything you've come to care about.
Unless you're using crystal cruiser B (or to a lesser extent mantis B), in which case there is nothing but near-boner-inducing triumph.

The only curve ball is the BULLSHIT last boss. All illusions of different strategies fly right out the window there. All the different approaches that got you through the first 95% of the game suddenly fail. You either luck out with specific weapon drops (mostly burst laser IIs and bombs) or you get a boarding party. No other way to win.

I got really lucky when, on the third stage, everyone but the pilot of the mothership decided to board me, and I luckily had a stacked crew that finished them off easy, and the rest of the fight was a breeze.

I don't recall the flagship ever bothering with boarding, not counting the stage 2 boarding drones.

I think the 2nd stage is the toughest. If you can beat that then you're almost guaranteed to beat the 3rd stage.

What is "FTL"?
Faster Than Light, a spacey rogue-like.

It's a game designed to crush your soul and leave you begging for more.

Imagine Star Command with lame graphics and working gameplay.

srs cat? Star Command looks like / actually was designed by a colorblind autistic on ritalin.

Yeah, needs more grey and brown.

I'd say less absolute red green and blue.

Como se dice 'color palette'?
