Re: This game makes Dark Souls seem easy--what's wrong? Help

Indeed. However it's not exactly reasonable to expect a noob to know how teleporter works. Come to think of it, I should have added: 5) Teleporter description should mention that you get about 50% better loot if you "capture" an enemy ship instead of blowing it up. 4) It is not clear anywh...

Re: This game makes Dark Souls seem easy--what's wrong? Help

While true in most cases, there are some specific things that are missing: 1) It does not explain anywhere in the game how Zoltan shield really works. I had to spend considerable amount of time researching before I learned that it takes exactly 2 'ticks' of full damage from a beam regardless of the ...

Re: This game makes Dark Souls seem easy--what's wrong? Help

The problem with this otherwise great game is not difficulty, but the lack of in game help and thus a really steep learning curve. The OP is a good example -- even after several playthroughs, the new player still does not really understand the game mechanics. And when people don't understand *why* t...

From my experience, beams don't disrupt your cloak when you use them. If you know that, this achievement is easy even with lvl 2 cloak.

Re: lasers should be renamed

And granted there's laser-tag and laser-based toys out there too, but when I hear blaster I see bright multi-colored plastic and / or Storm Troopers. Just a difference of opinion, but to me that's how it sounds "childish." Something wrong with appealing to Star Wars fans and/or younger au...

Re: Getting owned by missles

That's a problem right there. The way the game designed, you can't win if you invest heavily into one type of defense and ignore others. There are weapons that can completely negate a specific defense type. You can't shield against missiles and you can't dodge beams. Essentially, you have to have: (...

lasers should be renamed

It's a great game overall, no question about it. But, am I the only one that is bugged by the fact that "lasers" shoot small slowly (relatively) moving blobs instead of a beam? Personally, I think "Blaster" would be a much better name for that weapon type.

Re: Unlocking stealth b

It took me awhile to figure out how to destroy a ship during a single cloak. That was before I realized that beams don't break cloak . So, you fire your blasters, bombs and missiles, immediately cloak (before they hit the target) and as soon as your volley hits (hopefully), hit it with your beam. It...

Re: Ridiculous suggestions just for fun!

You encounter a strange derelict ship. Judging by bits and pieces on the floor (as well as walls and ceiling), the crew was killed by a particularly vicious animal. 1. Leave immediately, whatever did this may still be out there! --you continue on your journey, nothing happens. 2. Search the ship tho...

Re: Boarders and Sun jumps

Not to brag, but i have never even considered playing on easy. But if normal isnt fun to play, by all means switch. It doesnt lead to bad habbits like in some other games. If anything, easy mode would make more sense with certain ships that you can unlock because the Kestrel is a well balanced and ...
