Why Nothing Gets Done, Kerbal Edition

Since I posted my first steps in Kerbal Space Program, I’ve been very…industrious.  I began with a simple orbital docking maneuver.  Then I moved on to a less simple one.  Before I knew it I was spending hours trying to line up two massive space station modules and gently bring them together while they were both hurtling around the planet at over a two thousand meters per second.

This isn't so hard.

This isn’t so hard.

Let’s Play Star Trek: Elite Force II: Part 7

Oh, Ensign Franklin, truly you were the best of us.  I will always remember your generic face and one-dimensional character.  A hundred years from now, people will repeat that thing you said that one time or something, and tell each other how you were not obviously the redshirt  whose only purpose was to immediately die and show everyone how serious the situation is.  Rest in peace, good buddy.  *Sniff*

Let’s Play Star Trek: Elite Force II: Part 5

My viewer has spoken! We tell Telsia it isn’t working out. Don’t worry, though. I’m sure someone else will come along.

One needs only to look at Telsia’s flat delivery in the first part of this episode, or Korban’s over-exaggerated annunciation that sounds like someone kept telling the voice actor, “No no no, more Klingon!” (I do still get a chuckle out of how…enthusiastic he is when describing the new weapon.)

Let’s Play Star Trek: Elite Force II: Part 2

After long delays, we return to Elite Force 2.  Now, we start to see a little more of what the game is like.

I apologize for the unreadable subtitles.  They look fine in my source video, but Youtube makes a hash of them when I upload.  I’m still trying to find a good balance between quality and file size for my uploads.
