I Heart you FTL. You sadistic evil bastard you.

I actually wonder about replayability. I've seen the end ship. I've been throttled by him. But my strategy going in was very good.

Not sure how much more there is to see, or how much motion there can be in my strategy. I feel like I'm towards the end of my playing already.
Well, there's easy and normal, and also all the unlockable ships, and each ship has an alternate unlockable layout. Plus one of the ships is a bit special
Also, in one of the last patches he added events, so it wouldn't surprise me if he continues to add content to the game.

Yeah, unlocking ships is no fun, though. Some of those achievements don't seem enjoyable to go after, and I'm surprised at how slowly ships unlock on their own.
Easy/Normal doesn't change the game much, just changes how easy it is, and due to the randomness I'm noticing little variation between them. Sure, you can fight off invaders invincibly in the med ward on Easy, but I don't seem to consistently go further on Easy than Normal.

And I fully expect more things to be thrown in, which may make this like MineCraft for me - return every 6 months or so.

I played for 6 hours over the weekend, which is a ton. But I feel like I hit the limit of what I can do. I adored those 6 hours, but after seeing the end I feel like there isn't much more to see. Even still, though, I'm having unique ways for games to end that are a blast (too often it's mostly just "fire everywhere, no oxygen, mantis' overrunning everything!" but man, the times you almost make it out of that are a blast.)
