  1. Hey, so before I talk about anything else I want to say that I was interviewed on my friend Coca’s podcast, if you’d like a little insight into my creative process and shit I think you’ll really enjoy it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DR8V2fLps6U

    I’ve also started selling merch, for anyone who wanted to support my channel financially without using my Patreon. Hiring artists to do the designs for me since I want them to actually be decent looking, gonna make a video once I’ve got a couple more: https://www.designbyhumans.com/shop/ShammyTV/

    OKAY now that that’s out of the way, I should explain what made this video take so long, aside from the obvious fact that it’s roughly 4 times as long as the reviews I used to make when I was posting monthly:

    TL;DR – While working on this review I was dealing with some personal mental health problems, partially brought on by stress and partially brought on by the fact that I had to put down two childhood dogs during the writing process. Throw in the fact that I was talking about a game that I’m really not passionate about at this point and you get a recipe for a 4 month creation timeline, and that’s not even mentioning my steadily rising stupid level of detail that I put into these reviews in both the editing and writing process, as far as I can remember there are more hidden jokes in this review than normal ones.

    Which leads me to another point – I’m not going to be making any more long form reviews like this one in the near future, and if I ever make one again it’s going to be for a game I really care about so that i don’t run out of steam halfway through working on it. I know these reviews are a bit contentious with my audience, I’ve heard an equal number of people saying they prefer either the shorter and longer reviews, but for my own sake I’m going to be moving back to around 15-20 minute videos. My goal for this year is to upload at least 1 high quality video per month, and I’m very excited about the three I’ve got lined up after this one.

    Sorry this took me so long to make, I’ve been staring at it for so long I don’t even know if it’s bearable to watch. Hope you liked it.

    Also, for anyone who isn’t aware, I do a bi-weekly podcast with 3 of my friends called “Please Stop Talking.” The first episode was pretty rough but I think we’ve really found our footing, and if you like my reviews I think there’s a good chance you’ll enjoy it. Here’s a recent episode about the Game Awards: https://soundcloud.com/pstpodcast/please-stop-talking-12-the-game-awards-2017

  2. So I played the NEXT update a few months back and ended up rewatching this video through yet another Shammy binge rewatch.

    You know all those possible interpretations linked to the Bible and Tarot cards? What half the video spends trying to make smart, not shitty relations and commentary between the game and real life themes?
    Yeah it turns out that 16 is just repeated ad nauseum because the simulation had 16 seconds left of run time in its own reality before it was shut down.

    Even though he hates this game, Shammy managed to actually overestimate this game.

    What a testament to this game's bullshit.

  3. Retroactively I dislike the existence of this video. Not the video itself, it's not as much teehee funny cartoon owl do the meanie ha ha words as it is shammy tying up all lose ends, but it's still a good video. No, I dislike its existence because had it not been made shammt could have reviewed the next update. Oh well, you win some you lose some.

  4. this is like the fourth time I’ve watched this video holy fuck it’s like every time I come back there’s a little aside or a point I missed or the whole thing gets mildly recontextualized as time progresses and new industry fiascos rear their glitchy, misdirected heads. goddamnit owl boy, I love your content.
