    Fixed. Supposed to be a youtube video of people griefing with the text-to-speech. aeiou.

    I did like Moonbase Alpha, though. I’ve said it before, I love when shit goes awry in (fictional) space, or deep underwater for that matter. Having to cooperate with a bunch of people to fix the problem at a slow-ass moon pace or you’re all going to die within a half an hour is awesome, but the level of sustained maturity that takes is higher than STEAM can deliver. It doesn’t help that it’s pretty boring after you survive a few times and it’s griefer heaven in its unrestricted state.

    Ever see the movie Sunshine? The scene where they have to slowly walk out and replace some motors to fix the giant stuck sun shield panels before the entire ship fries is basically what Moonbase Alpha is.

    @beige I’ve been to the moonbase, ’twas a silly place.

    Also, that’s one of the longest rationalizations for playing a bad game I have ever read :P. But, like the Asian chef on his flying boat says to Korben Dallas, “Good philosophy, see good in bad, I like!”.
