The Finger Guns Podcast Ep. 175 – Video Games and Mental Health
This week on The Finger Guns Podcast it’s our 175th episode! To celebrate this major milestone we, er, well there’s only three of us but what a trio! Rossko, Kat and Miles get together to talk the week’s news and where better place to start than with the clues pointing to a brand new Crash Bandicoot game being revealed at The Game Awards this year?
Rumours are rife with speculation that we may see Crash’s long awaited game Wumpa League at Geoff Keighley’s annual game trailer expose, so be on the look out for that. Is Kat hyped?
Well, you’re gonna have to listen to find out..
Elsewhere the biggest news of the week without a doubt was the reveal of the first footage from The Super Mario Bros. Movie from Nintendo and Minion’s creators Illumination.
The discord around this film has been rather insane so we try to collate it all and share our own opinions on what the trailer showcases and if we’re excited to see the rest of it. Oh, and if Chris Pratt is the right voice for Mario.
Will this continue long into the wee hours? You better believe it, Rossko might bitch about this until the sun scorches the entire planet so buckle up.
Ahead of a possible full Finger Guns Podcast on the subject we also get into the affects of gaming on our mental health, as each member of the team share their experiences with games and how they’ve helped them get through some hard times and some of the stigma that still surrounds gaming as a whole.
‘Never feel stupid for finding comfort in a video game’.
Our Game of the Week segment returns with Miles talking Undetected, Kat shares her slice of Lemon Cake and Rossko goes all basic bitch and talks his time with FIFA 23.
