26 : Misinformed

26 : Misinformed

2020-07-3141:01

Brad and Stu talk the usual games. Brad get emotional about Tetris Effect, whilst Stu talks 16bit inspired Panzer Paladins, Kojima inspired Death Stranding and more. Talk then shifts to Joe Rogans recent comments about videogames and why having a platform whilst misinformed is not good for anyone. Yes we get the irony of that. _____________________________________ Support us on Patreon https://www.patreon.com/mentalhealthgaming Buy us a Coffee https://ko-fi.com/mentalhealthgaming Let us Support you on Discord https://discord.gg/N4vF9x7 Follow us on:- Twitter - http://bit.ly/2S0xLU1 Facebook - http://bit.ly/3bd3dWR Youtube - http://bit.ly/2OuW7mS Soundcloud - http://bit.ly/39aPUVa

It's nice to see you, to see you... Brad and Stu take a break from mental health discussion this week to focus on games. In particular our own personal top 5 of the generation. Does Brad put a AAA game at the top over an Indie? Does Stu remember the real world outside of VR? Well, you can find out. Also, apologies for the audio issues. Brad needs to learn to check his cables. _____________________________________ Support us on Patreon https://www.patreon.com/mentalhealthgaming Buy us a Coffee https://ko-fi.com/mentalhealthgaming Let us Support you on Discord https://discord.gg/N4vF9x7 Follow us on:- Twitter - http://bit.ly/2S0xLU1 Facebook - http://bit.ly/3bd3dWR Youtube - http://bit.ly/2OuW7mS Soundcloud - http://bit.ly/39aPUVa

Which cover a decent variety. Even if we do say so ourselves. We then touch on what it is like to have a clear head for a short while, after Brad finally got his UC sorted and discovered the amount he will get to live off.

We tried a new feature with the recording software and it didn't go well. Luckily we noticed early in the recording. Stu has been playing Astral Chain, whilst Brad can finally talk about Sunless Sea: Zubmariner Editon. Before chat moves onto Brad's conflicting emotions on the recent giveaways and Stu talks about worries and concerns when someone takes over something you have spent time building.

In games chat, Stu has been all the way back to 1992, then forward to 2018 to talk about the Switch release of Flashback. Does it still hold up today? Of course it does. Brad has still been playing Animal Crossing, but also getting into New Super Lucky's Tale and has been surprised by how good it actually is. We are talking it could hang with Mario levels of good. Only as part of the entourage like, but still. We discuss the idea behind gender identity and gender normality. How Brad has struggled to fit into any gender based group. He is a straight white male, comfortable with his sexuality, but because he never feels masculine, nor completely feminine, he struggles to fit in.
