Re: Various Valorous Virtual Ventures - FTL Videos

Just out of interest, who would you say are some of the others in your top five YouTube FTLers? NorthernLion, AlpacaPatrol, Green9090, TalesOfLumin, and IndieStatik. So I guess it's actually a Top 6 now. =P edit: I just realized that I have a different username here on these forums... I'm that guy ...

Re: The most infuriating encounter in the game.

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

Just had a good one. Having a solid run, second Sector, racking up good amounts of scrap, swimming in Missiles, just got my Weapon System upgraded a bit, acquired my 2nd Shield Bar... ...and then I find out that I'm stuck in the NE corner of the sector because the lowest beacon on the "path&quo...
