Steve Bannon might show up, I would consider that a risk.

Tresch turned on the fans that would pull air through the scrubber's zeolites at 7,500 cubic feet per minute....Nobody knew why the carbon dioxide levels had risen so slowly, or why oxygen stayed constant around 17 percent, or why the scrubber didn't work

The past repeats itself. Next time try an algae bioreactor. You can have all the plants in the world but it's not worth much because they're more tuned to being in a closed system with themselves, and dry minerals will only get you so far. Algae is way better at selflessly and constantly converting CO2 to O2 when it has enough light and nutrients. Build and balance your entire system around your algae air scrubber, because the planet basically is.

The risk is in shaved-down pool nazis oiling up our women and swimming with them in an olympic-sized toilet.

I liked them both, but the second seems more than a bit derivative. Playing as a Big Daddy is a nice touch, though.

I just got the remastered collection for Switch, and am ...a third? of the way through 1 again. Maybe I'll actually finish Infinite this time, too.

Would someone be so graceful as to cut out the pages and pages of excessive, masturbatory writing, leaving us with the single paragraph of actual information detailing how this thing went?

Somehow, nothing goes wrong

Well, what could, really?
