FTL: Faster Than Light. It seems like every weekend I have to try at least once to get that damn flagship on Normal difficulty. Still haven't managed it. Also want to unlock all the different ships; I only have about half of them so far.
I love FTL. I have yet to beat it on normal as well, though I feel like I make most progress with the engi ship. Nothing like setting a room on fire and sending in the rock guess to camp it. I don't think I have had more fun failing at any other game, well except maybe Rogue Legacy
I play most of my games through Steam ... feel free to friend me if you want to be notified what I'm playing at any moment ...
Same here. My ID is the same as my forum handle. Unfortunatly my computer is dead right now but my new parts are coming today! (I suspect this is why the Beta has been delayed, Inxile wanted to wait till I was able to play it)

Oh, man, a ton of stuff. I tend to hop between a lot of games at any one time

Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles, Spelunky, and Velocity Ultra on PS Vita.

Ridiculous Fishing (VLAMBEER!) on iOS.

Nuclear Throne, Europa Universalis IV, Saints Row IV, Call Of Juarez: Gunslinger (it's really good!), and like fifteen other games I can't even remember the names of for PC.

The Wonderful 101, Pikmin 3, and New Super Mario Bros. U for the Wii U proper, in addition to Super Castlevania IV and Super Mario Bros. for the Wii U Virtual Console.

Shin Megami Tensei IV, HarmoKnight, and Kokuga for the 3DS proper, plus the first NES Castlevania, Wario Land 2, Wario Land 3, Kirby's Dream Land 2, and at least a couple of other games for the 3DS Virtual Console. I'm also about to start Pokemon X; believe it or not, I've never played a Pokemon game (well, except for a couple of hours I don't remember with Pokemon... Yellow, I think, when I was very young). And I may go back and check on my town (which I called Lunciter, after Glen Runciter in Philip K. Dick's UBIK because I'm a nerd :D ) in Animal Crossing: New Leaf sometime soon.

I've also been playing GTAV on the 360, though I let a friend borrow it, because he was going through a difficult time and I needed to get it away from me so as to curb my addiction. Also, Vanquish.

I may be leaving even more stuff out, actually...! :shock:

Incidentally, this is one reason I'm so sanguine about the beta's release date. I really do have no shortage of games to play.

EDIT: Shit, that's right! How could I forget Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn? Oh, and Eldritch?

I'm occasionally tinkering with FTL (though I haven't had much time to game of late :| ). I've only done two runs, getting my ass thoroughly kicked in the final boss battle.

I finally got around to playing Dragon Age 2 fairly recently... Which I had put off for years for obvious reasons. It was a useful reminder of things I don't like in RPGs, and I suspect having it fresh in my mind will make Wasteland 2 come off even better. :D

On morning commutes, I've enjoyed Silver Sword (pretty much a direct homage to the original Bard's Tale) and Knights of Pen & Paper on my phone.

Oh, right. I was playing that, too. I guess I should finish it, but honestly, I'm bored out of my skull with that game.

Ah, good old FTL. ^^
Its a good game and yes, the final boss battle can be really tough if your ship is not equipped and upgraded properly.

FTL IS a great game. I must admit I have not beaten it on normal either :oops:

I have got every ship except the crystal ship though....

What I like is that there are quite a few different ways of playing through. Specialising in different gear etc. And it can turn in an instant. One moment you are riding high with spare scrap and a full crew, next 3 of your most skilled guys are dead, your oxygen is out, your doors are out and your ship is on fire. And you are still fighting off the damn enemy ship. Good times :lol:

Yeah, crystal ship is hard to get (i also did not get it, but i'll try again the next days).

and yes, a really good run through can turn in an instant to a desaster. ^^

That's why I stopping playing. You could lose just by bad luck. That and I've wiped on my first jump, on easy, more than once.

After a couple of years playing X2-X3:TC, spending months for each game, I'm playing X3:AP now trying to "complete" it before Rebirth's Nov 15th release.
Probably my 300th+ hour in Europa Universalis 4, both in Ironman and DRM-free
Replaying Hearts of iron 3
Avadon 2
Saints Row IV

That's part of the joy of it. I have never been beaten purely by luck. There has always been a combination of factors, including luck.

Yeah, me 2.
Most of a combination of bad luck and bad managment(and too much greed ^^, just one system more before i get out :D ).

I had my systems hacked and 4 guys teleport aboard. On the first jump. I had that happen at least twice. I make it to the boss more often than not now, but I always felt it was luck whether I got there or not and I figured I'd get more fun flipping a coin.

wow, yeah, 4 guys aboard is not good.
but with upgraded doors and good o2 mangament you can kill them without loosing your whole crew.

Of course there is alsways a little bit luck into it, but if you upgraded your ship (and crew) carefully you can even manage worse scenarios.

Yeah, the problem was, first jump. I had the best luck with the Zoltan ship cause it started with an extra shield and reinforced doors. Halberd laser made the first two zones cake as well, but sucked by the end.
