I learned more things this week, I hope you did too!
Now, let's talk about the reason you are here. Pat played Rocket League for this episode, I watched, commented, and was mostly trying my hardest to focus on getting some facts out to you. The edit looks like a multi-camera-sit-com gone wrong, so I am going to once again recommend that you want the full stream. That way you don't miss any commentary and get a good idea of how awesome it is to do these things live!
Through my research for this episode, I learned about surgeon simulation video games, how team-based video games help kids be more social and how they help soldiers with PTSD cope and reduce their symptoms.
Here are the sources I used this time:
- I was depressed, anxious, and on the verge of suicide… then Zelda: Breath of the Wild saved me
- The Impact of Video Games on Training Surgeons in the 21st Century.
