Utter Nonsense From Nerds

The GGB is exactly what it sounds like. A bunch of nerds out to have a good time and talk about nerdy things. Video games, Movies, Comics, Television, hell even wacky videos. Just come hang around and listen to us be idiots.

Who remembers playing with Microsoft Sam back in the older days of Windows. I will never forget teasing my sister and making prank phone calls using it. Microsoft Sam for those that don’t know was a text-to-speech voice built into older versions of windows. I’m not sure if it is still in the newer versions but I really hope so.

The reason I bring that up is because Moon Base Alpha is a free-to-play game set in the year 2032 and puts the player in the life of a lunar-based astronaut. The game features voice chat, but the key thing here is it also supports text-to-speech. Some players found out that if you put certain characters between letters you can make your text change pitch. The video below shows the shenanigans that started.
