Possible for this to be on the 'Big Live Live Show: Live 3!'?

#1 Posted by Dragon_Fire (358 posts) -

Would anyone want this to be Quick Looked on the Big Live Live Show: Live 3!, does this idea have any support, or would everyone just rather have a normal Quick Look?

Reason I am even making a Topic about this is:

(1) The game is pretty awesome!

(2) It gets released on 14 of September (This Friday, same day as BLLSL3)

(3) I think it would be pretty awesome for dave, vinny, etc to all play this game live.

(4) It a rogue-like game.

(5) It could use up some time on the show and it's pretty enjoyable to watch.

Discuss? (Should it be on the show, or not, or am I completely wrong, and I should get lost?)

I imagine Vinny would be pretty damn busy and the games kind of slow paced for the action packed big live live show live 3 isn't it?

If it comes out on the same day, I doubt it. Odds are, they have everything planned out and set up already. Jumping into a game none of them know a thing about sounds like a recipe for disaster.

Naw, that should just be a Quick Look.

It would be pretty baller if they QL'd it live on the show but my money's on them doing a regular QL sometime after.

I agree. And I've been meaning to give you a follow for some time now, so now is as good a time as any.

I would like a quick look around 40 to 60 minutes long of this. Unless it isn't as deep as I thought. That would suck.

Depending on how well you do, a run to the end takes about 30 minutes on easy. Normal takes a bit longer and the game in general is pretty difficult when you first start off.

30 minutes seems low, though I've only played easy once or twice. There's still 8 sectors on easy, right? That only gives you about 4 minutes per sector, which I just don't see happening. You end up doing multiple fights per sector, and even when you're way stronger than the ships you're fighting, fights can take anywhere from 30 seconds to like 2 or 3 minutes if the ship you're fighting has a decent shield and gets a lot of lucky dodges. Or are you assuming that the person playing is just making a bee line for the sector exit, despite that being inadvisable?

I guess it depends on whether you still read all of the text in the game or not, but I feel like 8-10 minutes per sector is much more accurate.

A space sim strategy game doesn't seem like a good fit for the Big Live Live Show.

I should note that I always get to the end, but never manage to beat the last sector. Each time it is between 30-45 minutes. Maybe thats why I keep losing, I get through the sectors to quick. Also I am at the point where I barley read the text.

@SSully: Yeah, I think it really helps if you spend as much time in each sector as possible. That might even be one of the tooltips the game tells you at the beginning? Obviously the advancing fleet forces you forward at a certain point, but try to figure out a route that allows you to zigzag around and still leave the sector before they catch up to you. You'll end up with more scrap to upgrade your ship with, plus the more beacons you visit, the better your odds of encountering an event that gives you a free crew member or weapon, which is also a nice bonus.

Also, any run where you can buy a Scrap Recovery Arm from a shop within the first 1 or 2 sectors (and then follow my suggestion of spending as much time as possible in each sector) almost guarantees that you beat the boss, because you end up getting a fair amount of extra scrap.

Oh man, watching Vinny just get obliterated in this game would be so awesome. I hope they do a QL, BLLS or not.

It'd make for a good quick look, but I wouldn't necessarily call it live show material.

It for sure should be a Quick Look. Love the game, and its one of the best Kickstarters I backed!

Loving the fact that its getting massive press just before the release mainly through word of mouth from YouTubers.

Agree with this, would make a good QL. But doubt it will be or should be in the live show. Will say I was disappointed FTL wasn't mentioned in the podcast this week, not even just as a game being released this week. Maybe next week after all this live show business is put to bed, I'm sure the crew are quite busy!

Okay I understand that it would be pretty slow for something that is on the BLLSL3.
