Why Do I Suck? FTL: Faster Than Light


One game I never thought I would get into was FTL: Faster Than Light.  I’m more of a shooter/platform type of gamer.  The idea of a “space sim” seemed, well, boring.  However, I was quickly addicted to FTL after I gave the tutorial a fighting chance!

The only problem?  I’m really horrible at this game.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I’ve only dumped 3-4 hours into it, but that equated to a few dozen broken-ass Kessler ships and way more dead crew members.  I know most “experts” have played for over 100 hours, but still! I feel like I lose to the most random things.  I guess this is the nature of the beast, though.  The game is extremely random, the only way to hedge against these events is to prepare your ass off.  I can’t seem to get a good stockpile of scrap, though, before stuff really starts to hit the fan.  I also have none of the better ships at my disposal, so I’m somewhat stuck.

Any pointers on one of my random missions?  Check out the video below!
