Advent Rising was released May 31st, 2005, and today marks exactly five years since then. And I could think of nothing more apropos for the occasion than a video of it doing exactly what everyone panned it for.
To demonstrate some of the less charming aspects of the game, here's a video of me breaking it by getting outside the map repeatedly, and then either dying or wandering around in space for all eternity.

It's actually ridiculously easy in some sections to do this, especially in the more open levels. I also have to emphasize, I do all this without cheating the game in any way, beyond in some sections giving myself access to psychic powers to make jumping around easier and less tedious.
I could do several more videos of this kinda thing is there's interest, because this is just a sampler of some of the stuff you can do.
Anyway, there probably won't be an update for a couple days because I'm gonna see if I can fix some audio problems and some miscellaneous issues I've been having.
