Brilliant news: In early 2014, the excellent indie starship-management game FTL will get a free Advanced Edition that adds all sorts of new stuff. Even better, the game will finally come to iPad, also in early 2014. Yessssssss.
I can't wait to discover the new ways that I'll be able to doom my plucky team of escaped explorers.
My favorite is still the time I was playing around with boarding parties. I boarded an enemy vessel, killed their crew, and was happy with all the new loot I got. Then in a moment of absolutely horrible planning, timing, and idiocy, my captain shouted out "fire the lasers!" and fired on the helpless vessel, exploding it, killing the boarding party.
Captain Kirk's got nothing on me.
