Okay this time I do a run in The Vortex for real, and edit my last post to say "The Torus" which is what it was for :?

Like before though, I'll be playing this until I win so who knows how long the series will be.

Re: Vortex 2nd run

Well, so far no fiery death, but too bad about the Mantis. I hate it when I let a fight go on too long - especially when someone dies on the Teleporter back on my own ship. I want to smack myself, knowing I could have retrieved them a split-second sooner - and some of the time I was thinking I should do that, but waited. Even worse when it happens late in the game: you've got a boarding crew composed of masters of combat, you get overconfident, you let someone die needlessly, then you've got to find a store in Sector 8 and hire whatever squishy meatsack they have.

The worst part is, I totally nerfed my teleporter strategy after spending over 100 credits on it. In the Vortex, every piece of scrap is GOLD and I just tossed 100 of them down the chute.

I won't spoil anything and say whether or not that will come to bite me later :)

I take my mod, the Potential, out for another spin trying to bag yet another victory.

Something tells me this is gonna be a rough one.

Holy shit! :o

I was thinking: AAAAAHHHH! Y U NO BUY TELEPORTER IN 7TH SECTOR?!?!; and in the boss fight: AAAAAAHHHHHH! Y U NO POWER UP SHIELDS AFTER FIXING?!?!

A most judicious use of a repair station, if I do say so.

Hah! Even after rewatching twice I didn't notice that shield. One thing I've learned, it's impossible to play perfectly.

Though this is possibly my favorite video out of the almost 200 I've put up on YouTube. A perfect example of why, even as you're (or I'm) saying out loud that the battle is lost and that there's no way to win, you should keep fighting and trying.

Come watch me play the modded ship The Viper, complete with venom cannons and hungry Mantises who seem to breed like rabbits.
