Gotta go off-topic for a second here.

SPACE IS NOT COLD!

You're quite mistaken. Space is just a couple degrees over absolute zero (over, because of the backround radiation from the creation of the universe), the only reason it takes a while for anything to cool down is because there's little to transfer the heat to. But yes indeed there is still stuff to transfer the heat to, be it space dust or the occasional gas particle floating around. Space isn't perfect vacuum. The Hollywood version where people freeze in seconds is only wrong in that they show it happening in seconds, when really it'd take a little while.

Au contraire. Space is not 'a couple degrees above zero'. Space is not any temperature at all, and whilst matter the is floating in space will eventually become a few degrees above zero (barring any significant outside radiation), space itself still cannot have a temperature.

This isn't exposed though. This is indoors, where any dust particles can't radiate energy away, actually they will absorb radiation from the walls!(presumably the station's internal walls are not significantly below 0 degrees C)
It's like being between the layers in a Thermos! No air, but what matter is present is not magically close to absolute zero.

Regardless, we now know that the room was filled with very cold coolant gas instead of normal atmosphere, and therefore unbreathable whether or not it had oxygen in it.

Nobly sacrificed myself against a rogue cyborg with a lightsaber, and I managed to dent it. It tried to go into a cryogenic sleeper, but it had no effects. The escape shuttle made it successfully.

I shanked a prison guard with my shiv only to get noticed by a camera and riddled with holes by a turret.

First, I summoned three giant mushrooms on top of each other in the form of stairs. I climbed up to the top of my makeshift staircase, and then sent a barrage of exploding mushroom nukes down on the people below, sending them flying into the abyss. Except for one, who managed to kill me with something slashy before I could kill him.

Saved Pierce and was heading for Shaundi and had the van she was in at quarter health. Car I'm in is about to explode so I jack a car and begin driving off after the van only to get a message saying I'm about to leave a follower behind, and sitting right there in the passenger seat is a masanko gunning down my gang members not caring that the head of the gang he was killing was driving him around. Stopped the car and was about to get out when a group of 5 saints began to unleash lead on the car while I was still in it just to get the masanko still in the passanger seat. Survived the explosion, but not being set on fire from the flaming wreckage. Way to look out for your boss guys. Saints Row 2.

Got my first total party kill. Was exploring an island while screwing around on my awesome new magic boat, when I ran into four imp-looking things that loved to dance. They were faster than my party, could knockdown or confuse everyone with group-hitting dance attacks, and would even attempt to use an instant-death attack that could also hit all four party members if unlucky. Cue ten minutes of me swearing in frustration at the TV screen as my party slowly perished.

My 'stored' Action Points got blasted away by few cards, making me unable to attack, and then poison and a basic bow card killed my mage.

Wow, I did a quick Google Image search on that, and it looks like it would be right up my alley. Can you really completely customize your character's head?! Because I am a major sucker for character creation. :P
A pity I don't have a powerful enough computer for such things, but ah well.

Hrm, to keep this on topic... Well, my last game death was a savescum, so that's not cool enough. Lemme just open up IVAN...
Edit: Okay, Bartus. Let's see how good a dungeon crawler you are.

Edit: FUUUU, not even off the first level and I'm down one arm and my dignity. I'm a bit out-of-practice, it seems...

Edit:
Poor Bartus. Who put all those rats in that drinking fountain? Some people...  :-\

Not so much me dying but I have this odd obsession with saving everyone.

Threw myself in space to try and kill the xenomorph inside me.

That's... pretty bad RP there.
Protip: A real person will just about never kill themselves, or put themselves in a situation where they would experience physical pain.
Exceptions are the mentally damaged or people who have gone through years of emotional things to make them fail to care. But I don't think that a comapny sending people to space would hire anyone as emotionally fragile as either.

Overrun by Borg Cubes so I had to abandon the game (and LP of it).

Damn Borg.
