If you look at the Steam free to play section right now you will likely see the game "Everlasting Summer" a visual novel game / dating sim. Whatever you want to call them. I checked YouTube for videos to see what it was exactly, I got nothing back that wasn't in Russian, or some live action movie and possibly a song. I became more curios as the lack of information surfaced. So I got it into my head to play it and record every second and upload it to my terrible YouTube channel. Mistakes have been made.
I guess I should mention that prior to Everlasting Summer I had only ever played one game in the genre: Rising Angels Reborn. Which was f*cking awesome. I would liken it to a small scale mass effect like adventure with a cast of anthropomorphic characters, rocking music and hard choices. Aside from the "game play" the games have nothing else in common. So I at least knew how to play Everlasting Summer.
Without going into to much detail about the game and spoiling everything: Your play as some scumbag of a main character (At least initially) who goes to a summer camp for 7 days. Then it's dating time. Pick your girls and such. I made my choice early on, it was easy: The girl in question was completely insane and lived up to my expectations making things explode, picking fights and generally being a jerk. I seem to have the same dating habits in games as I do in reality: bad ones. But since it's a game I didn't end up picking glass shards out of a head wound when things were over.
And now let's get to the real deal: There is a dood who is posting on every video, multiple times, minutes apart, non stop since the first video went up. I marathon-ed the game and beat it in 3 days (most of which was spent editing the videos together) and he has commented on nearly everything, from errors I make to apologizing for the occasionally terrible fan subs, or clarifying some of the translations which he apparently payed for? And then I went to far. In the penultimate episode he commented on how the game was not over after I beat it, that I had to keep playing it to get the final, true ending. I told him, in short: "I'm done, I had my laughs and have no intention of making more videos or continuing to play." And now he is mad. Continuing to spam posts on the video... So yeah. I guess I just got a one in one millionth taste of the crap "Professional" youtube personalities (and the giant bomb staff) likely get on a daily basis. I'm probably going to slink away for a while after posting the final episode tomorrow morning and try and block this dood out because he is spamming the hell out of my Google+ notifications. Which I can't seem to shut down! Oh well, stupid crap happens to us all.
Alright Alisa, bring your crazy face and let's get out of here.
