Thanks to one of my favorite Lets Play threads in a while, I just bought the full version of Hatoful Boyfriend, which is ... well, basically you start with a dating sim starring Google Image Search stock photo birds (though sometimes they dress up in maid outfits and the like and yes this is a real screenshot from a real game) but once you can accept that totally sensible and logical premise, then things start to get weird from there. Like, this is already weird enough when you think you're just there to date stock photo birds, but ... well, let's just say that's not even what usually ends up happening.
(One of my favorite Let's Play threads ever if you want to see just how deep the madness runs. Suffice it to say that DLSite's product page rating it G is a dirty lie, unless that's a Japanese G, which presumably stands for Guro.)
Anyway, since I now have the full version, I did a playthrough Livestream last night. It was just a few friends and a few more people they invited, but an awesome and highly amusing time was had by all, even though that's not really to my credit--I basically just sat there and made the face you see in my icon while playing, and the absurdity of the game itself was where most of the humor arose. And that was one of the less weird paths, though some of the people who were there but didn't read the thread might not believe me on that. To that I say: just you wait.
So, since experiment one was such a success, I'm totally going to do this again. http://www.livestream.com/kjorteo , video recap of last night's session is there (skip to about 16:10 unless you're deeply fascinated with watching me struggle to get the audio and visual streaming working) and I'll be streaming again sometime next weekend, probably Saturday the 25th eveningish. We'll see, though. Anyway, hopefully everybirdy can make it!
