I've no idea about Magnetic offense. Sounds like RNG. MANY items though, should be set to only appear once. Most aren't. That should be changed, to force the game to keep variety going throughout (which is the exact reason why many games of this type do that; nobody likes that feeling of "What? But this appeared earlier and I didn't want it then either! That's disappointing!"). Only certain items should be able to appear more than once. I might set a bunch of these myself so don't be surprised if I suddenly send in something like that.
Anangu boomerangs will receive no changes for now.
Shield drones, bah.
And Limiter Removal.... terrible. There's no reason to ever use it. I cant think of a possible way to make it NOT suck, it's one of those occaisional items that maybe made some sense early on in development (when a totally different style of enemy attacks was planned, though I never figured out why anyone thought that'd happen with me being on the project...) but makes no sense whatsoever now. It should be replaced, honestly.
Okay, this is good to hear on all counts, thanks guys. I'm happy knowing that I'm doing something right at least, and I suppose if I encounter anything that's super jarring I'll point it out here instead of moaning about it in my videos. If it's something tiny though, welllllllll... I may just rag on it for comedic effect
And ptarth, I appreciate the advice. Believe me, I've spent a lot of time researching professional gaming on youtube, and while I may not be where I want to be yet I know full well what I'm getting myself into. I'm kinda modeling what I do after Northernlion, Bisnap, and Sleepcycles (all of whom would probably love Starward Rogue, come to think of it), since their styles are based less on heavy editing and personas and more on commentary and gameplay. Ideally, I'd stream more often than I do, but since youtube has to contend with my job, I don't often find the time I'd like to devote; yt is a lot more resource management friendly, insofar as time is a resource of which I have a limited amount.
Yeah, I agree with that style of commentary and such. I subscribe to all 3 of those guys, and their style keeps me coming back. I particularly like that they actually stay on the bloody topic. When I've watched certain other popular ones, such as Game Grumps, well... ugh. I just cant watch those guys. They'll be playing the game, on topic for like 2 minutes, and then one of them will start to tell some loooong and supposedly funny story about something that happened to some friend at a McDonalds are something. A lot of Youtubers do this, it just... bugs me. I mean going off topic a little bit every now and then is okay, certainly NorthernLion and Sleepcycles do that (and Sleepcycles can get hilariously nonsensical with that) but they get back to the actual game commentary quickly. I mean, if I wanted to watch people just yap about whatever the whole damn time, there's other videos I could go to, surely.
And yeah, those 3 possibly might like Starward. All 3 of them were contacted, but nothing came of it. Though, to be fair, they only have so much room on their plates for so many games, each can only really concentrate on a very few at a time since they're focused on putting out LOTS of videos. And I cant see them going for anything that doesn't have a quite large fanbase already (risky time investment, regardless of what they may think personally).
