Stark and Gillman are at it again! If you are a fan of Akiba’s strip, anime, nerd things, or just random friends getting together and chatting for hours on end, this is for you.
So you have some grant money, but doing real research is super hard. Instead you blow all the money on hookers and cocaine, then use unpaid interns and hand out surveys to high school students instead of really looking into anything. Those that fill it out, I guess you make the interns look into their school records—or if you are super lazy just take them at their word. Congratulations, you have not finished every study that has ever been done about violent games impacting behavior of minors!
The newest study, though, did manage to take the extra step and look into the broader reach of gaming itself; finding that the behavior problems, lower grades, and poor social skills all seemed to revolve around people who could/would not stop playing any video game. The study states that it is unsure if the researched gravitate towards the games or if the gaming causes it. Here is an idea, if you lack the self-control to hang out with friends, do your homework, study for a test, or desire to be in school, you might have some kind of issues to begin with.

Have you ever wondered what a stream would be like if one of the people on it really didn’t like the game and the other person wanted to defend it until the end of time? That is this stream, and that is what we are doing this week on the Mygamer visual cast. Zack finally decided to open up and share something that he once enjoyed with Gillman, and it promptly got destroyed for every reason that anyone could think of. Isn’t friendship grand?
Construction Simulator 2015 will forever be known to me as The Tale of Loader and Bucket. It is the journey of two best friends who are only looking to load up on some gravel and lay some mean pipe down at the job site. That is of course until “the man” got in their way and separated through harsh acts of physics, will power, and just being a dick. I will miss you bucket. You were my best friend.
Gillman and Zack are back for everyone’s two favorite things. Persona 4 and fighting games. Last time out they proved that they taste great together, this time the real question is if the addition of new modes will change things up in any way.
