FTL has a cool RNG based nature; it’s also its downfall I feel. Many people have been playing, streaming, praising, and damning this game for months. I finished it a few months ago but forgot to note it, so I picked it up again while recovering from surgery. Easy went down fast, it’s amazing how much those asteroid fields help with shield! At that point, around 2am, it was time to start Normal. 2am, on recovery drugs, stuck on my back, starting Normal FTL. What could go be better and less frustrating? Knowing the pain I was getting myself in to really just made it more hilarious; had to keep quiet a few times to not wake up my wife from laughter at how ridiculous things were. After a few false starts I got through it again at about 4am blissfully happy to have had something to keep my attention off the pain for two hours. Thanks FTL!
