So, I bought Starbound, but I'm not gonna play this game without other people. Do you guys have a server going? I assume that it would be hosted by peeps on the IRC if there is one.

IRC peeps are playing it on their own from what I can tell, no server going.

It took Kaizoman and I about 8 hours to get to and beat the UFO. We went in with basically zero knowledge of the game.

I feel like that's an excessively long time.

I haven't played it since this last patch but it was fairly absurd in the first place. The fact it flies too high to easily even hit is a major factor in its difficulty. Do remember though (or if you didn't know just let me point out) that the UFO is likely to be a later boss in the game eventually.

And up until this patch the second boss was even worse. Without exploiting the fact that you could block it in so it couldn't move or attack but you could attack through the blocks it was basically impossible because you couldn't boost your armor high enough to not die in a single hit.

Difficulty curve imba aside, this game is fucking amazing. 10/10

For a beta it's easily the best game released this year that I've played.

I just got this, so I'm just figuring things out. The controls seem awkward, but it's god so far otherwise. I'm still in the early stages, so I'm eager for things to ramp up.

For the most part the controls are the same as they are in Terraria. They really do need to get around to adding the control config menu though. I think it's one of those fairly low priority things though.





Also the third boss is absurd at the moment. I had the second best armor I could have before facing it (though at the time I thought it was the best) and one of its attacks still was able to one shot me. I had to make a bunker with a small hole in the top and kill it 8 damage at a time with a crappy tier 2 gun.

Can we just go a week without a character wipe? That'd be nice!

Are they doing the (hopefully) final character wipe soon? I'll be slightly annoyed if that's soon actually. I finally reached X sector and was starting on building a laboratory for an insane floran scientist.

Dunno; I still haven't had time to get past the ufo without a character wipe.

I don't play the game, but I have two brothers who do. They say it takes them twenty minutes to do that. :lol:

Some of us like to enjoy the fucking game the first time we play it.

Nah..They seem to be enjoying the hell out of it. I think they're just more into it than you.

Great. Maybe they should join so they can talk about it instead of you.

I finally got to play Starbound two days ago...
...While it didn't take too long to get the hang of it and kill the UFO, it seems to take a surprisingly long time to do anything else.
I think I'll wait a few more updates before trying it again.
