Starpoint Gemini 2: Secrets of Aethera Review – Skipping the Grind
Even after writing off Starpoint Gemini 2 as too grindy, they released some DLC that decidedly pulled me back. With Secrets of Aethera, they allow the player jump straight to level 35, which includes a battleship with all the trimmings (like a hangar! YAY!). This allows one to skip the grind that so halted my fun in the past and right to a really competent ship with really challenging enemies that kicked. My. Ass. Seriously, I was having a much better time this time around because I felt like the hamster wheel wasn’t so spinny. I dive into this new DLC head first to test out combat, new missions and other new additions. Personally, I think if you liked the original SG2, you’ll really like this. If you hit the same wall as me, this can bring you back. Thanks for watching, and enjoy!
