Is starstorm worth it?
I don't care how powerful or not they are, I'm just curious if the new characters are fun to play.

I think its worth to buy it. Skree and Penny are really fun to play. Ted sucks tho

I think they're all very fun to play... I have some affinity for ted though
Well, I'll give my personal opinions on each of the aspects:

The characters are pretty good, although you will find that you actually really dislike a couple, and you have to be a biy hopeful that any of them really suit you (Thankfully, Sentry and Skree are amazing fun for me, but Penny and Ted are just bad for me): it might be good to work out what general playstyles you like, and see which of the 'nauts are best at adapting to this playstyle.

The music is pretty good to listen to: you can easily cope without it, but that extra little variety is a nice touch, and the songs are diffinitely good.

Replays are amazing - They are just so much fun to watch and enjoy those "What the heck even happend?" Points in matches ^_^ Like when a teammate swiggins anchor hooked through a sorona worm, but didn't die because of a 0.5 seconds timeframe it wasn't fully up for, or when I manage to just kite and dodge the heck out of the entire enemy team for half a minute, and then my team comes in and does clean-up duty on them. The speed slider is also quite fun to mess with.

The Custom Games, is really good fun if you have enough friends to play them in a full 3v3 (Mini-gamenauts has been vastly improved with them), but if you can't get those full 3v3 privatre matches going often enough, it really isn't noteworthy (Unless you enjoy messing with bots, but I personally hate them: however the custom bots are available so that can be interesting to playtest).

So, mostly it is dependant on what exactly in this game it is that interests you: if you really like private matches then the custom settings gives a great deal of content, otherwise it is pointless (And similar applying to the 'nauts, music and replays).

I definitely think so, Penny is super fun to play as, and skree is interestign to say the least. I happened to pick it up during the sale when it was only like $1.50 or so and i appriciate the extra character choices

Probably the most fun I have ever had in this game is when chasing another player and puting a wall infront of THEIR OWN turret. And watching them panic as that frantically try and get through it.

Yeah the wall is defo the most fun to use. Very situational and takes a lot of practice and knowledge, but is awesome fun when you get it right

Thanks for all the input. I think I'll pick it up. If anyone has an extra copy they got during the summer sale, Ill buy it for 2 keys.
