    Brilliant. I already have a few of those but I'll keep an eye on it to see what else they add.

    Question; is it possible to get your hull repaired?

    All stores will repair your hull, it can get quite expensive if you keep getting patched up, try increasing your evasion so you don't get hit in the first place.

    Some friendlies will repair your hull in random encounters or by doing quests for them.

    Just picked this up from the devs, downloaded on Steam - not played it at all, but after watching the videos and reading the previews, how could it be bad?

    Seems great, got absolutely spanked on my first attempt :)

    Yeah it is, the tactical element seems a little shallower than I would like (what to target on ships etc) or maybe there are hidden depths there that haven't surfaced yet.

    I've been finding that the winning move is to pummel their weapons and they can't do anything.

    Weapons and drone control are top of my list of targets, although I must admit I did enjoy killing a rebel ship by taking out its shields in an asteroid field so it got smashed up.

    Don't bother targeting transporters at the start of an encounter you'll never stop boarders doing that.

    Its my usual tactic, if you're still in your starter ship stop using missiles when you've knocked out their weapons to save them, autofire is a good idea.

    Well I just bought this, downloaded it and now can't play it as my resolution won't go higher than 1024*768. Fucksake.

    What the fuck are you playing it on, a 386 with CGA?

    Gone and won my first game (albeit on easy) with the trusty Kestral. Not a bad little ship that. Lasers all the way, none of your puny missiles.

    Now to go about unlocking the ships and trying different strategies.

    Not played with drones yet but teleporting is a lot of evil fun if the other side are light on crew.

    That's a pisser. I was going to play this on my netbook.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    1280x720 is the minimum, has it right there on the system requirements.

    CGA... now those were proper graphics. 4 colours and I'm pretty sure 2 of them were purple.

    Fair enough. It can go live with the rest of the bundle games I've bought that my netbook can't run properly.

    Yeah it is, but I didn't even think to look at the system requirements since my PC is happy running modern FPSs and this is pretty primitive in comparison.

    This is brilliant. Crept up on me, can't even remember why I bought it earlier. Fucking glad I did.

    Jammy bugger! I've unlocked the Engi & Rock ships, but not beaten the boss yet. May try the mass laser approach ;)

    Edit: had a golden run, managed to get both the +10% scrap augment and the repair ship with scrap augment - was rolling in it by the end and had nearly maxed every system :D Thrashed the boss with nary a scratch, looking forward to trying out the reward :D

    @orpheus Unlocked the Engi and Federation ships, but not the rock yet. Federation ship is properly awful however.

    Unlocking the Zoltan ship is quite memorable.

    This sounded a bit too annoying from description but I really glad I bought it. I tried it on easy and got through loads of sectors but it turns out that the room whose purpose I wasn't sure of actually controlled the opening and closing of doors.

    I discovered this when most of the ship was on fire (thanks, Engi!) including the aforementioned 'door room'. I repaired that and opened all the airlocks which solved the fire problem. I was just breathing a sigh of relief when everybody ironically choked to death as I hadn't taken account the damage to the oxygen system.

    Awesome game:)

    I started playing this at 11pm last night thinking I'd give it a quick try before bed. 3am rolls around...

    Certainly has that "oh ok, just one more Planet" feel to it. Terrific game, really enjoying it.

    You'll never forget the first time you finally get your sensors fixed after a battle and then discover half the ship is on fire.

    I'm in love with the Pike Laser - surgical carnage.

    Just unlocked the second configuration of the Engi ship after failing to kill the boss... how many times do you have to defeat it?

    The day charity died - NEVER FORGET

    (the mic was OK in the end)

    Well I've managed to prod my graphics card into pretending my monitor is big enough, so I can play! No time now though. Booooo.
