Weebthusiast EP05 – Mental Health and Why We Play Video Games (Especially during quarantine)

 

Hi Hi!

 

Well, it surely has been a while since I last posted a video on here. I haven’t stopped uploading, though; I’ve been posting videos on my other channel #sorryasianparents. But I still haven’t forgotten about this baby. Many of us Weebthusiasts have been busy with other projects, but we try to get together as much as possible and make some new content. 

 

In this episode, Justice and I welcome our new friend Emilio on the show. It’s a new year, but everything still feels about the same. Since we are entering another stay-at-home order and have a new face, we decided to talk about how playing video games affects our mental health. We touch on what games we are currently playing, the community we have formed, and the positives vs. negatives from partaking in this digital pastime. We go on a few tangents, but we can’t help it. We’re just a bunch of excited gamers who are eager to share a piece of our minds. 

 

If you’re also playing video games during this trying time, let us know! We would like to hear what games you’re playing and how you feel about video games.

Stage Name Comedy #02: Mental Health, Substance Abuse, and 3*tt Stuff

This is a quick video, I guess 40 min is quick, between Seth and I. The tone is a bit more serious than we intended due to the subject matter. We start off the convo with male anal foreplay and end it with a bright note about mental disorders and substance abuse. I want to remind everyone we’re not doctors so we may get some details wrong and we’re not giving anyone advice about anything. We are just talking about our experiences with alcohol, depression, social pressure on how to handle our emotions as a “man” and how I’ve experienced difficulty coming to terms with my *shudders in my computer chair* feelings as an Asian American male. I also apologize for my pj’s and shitty Internet connection.

Also, why does YouTube new uploading program kinda suck?
