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.

Weebthusiast EP03: Justice and I Talk Destiny 2

Hi hi,

Justice and I got together to talk about some of the video games we are playing during quarantine. Coincidentally, we both are playing the same game: DESTINY 2!!!! We didn’t plan this, it just kinda happened. We also talk about hate mail, those old Xbox lobbies where boys would say mean things, and also how boy gamers don’t know how to act when a girl enters the chat. Our session this time is pretty long so the second part where Erin joins us will be on a different video. Unfortunately, Scott couldn’t make it this time but we will all be reunited soon!

So I hope y’all enjoy.
