I'm done listening to it, went a long way off gaming, but there was some moving and emotional stuff in there.

Seen a new side of all of you and props to all three of you for being prepared to share what you did - I guess a lot of stuff hit the cutting floor in the edit, but what was left in worked really well and got your message across.

Thanks

Really glad you listened WRETRO and cheers everyone else.

There was a lot on cut out........ Daz was toying with releasing the unedited on his blog.
There were times listening that I was forgetting to breathe to be honest

Excellent show chaps, it definitely takes some cojones to relive an discuss the experiences you've had.

It's not going to compare at anywhere near the same levels but I've had times where I've felt stressed, be it through money issues or in disagreement with an aggressive neighbour / freeholder where I've been not able to game as a form of escapism, an more like why should I game an enjoy myself when serious shit is going down, an again all I've felt like doing is going to sleep an hoping it blows over.

Also on a separate note with gaming I've found myself buying games where I know I won't be able to invest my time into them, an maybe they see an hour of game time at best before hitting my shelf. There's a short buzz when buying, an a feeling of needing that game pre purchase, but then feeling bad afterwards with the obvious overspend, I know it's not as powerful as depression, but it is still pretty mental.
