Well mechanically they went to this weird minimalist improv theater thing. It reminds me of Mind's Eye Theater which was also awkward.
And narrative wise they got really political after the election, which would be fine if they kept it to Facebook shitposting. But it's creeping into the game. For example they turned the Jovians from a militaristic faction with interesting philosophical question behind their motivations ... into space Nazis.
Originally when all the crazy alien virus stuff hit there was a deep colony on Jupiter that was isolated enough that the Jovians knew they were not infected. They were protecting the last real humans left. All the weird technology and alien shenanigans turned people into sort of sleeper agents who might go full Cronenberg monster at any given time. The Jovians did some unpleasant stuff but they had a good reason to.
That's all gone in 2nd ed now.
