Is Logan Paul a Sociopath?


Logan Paul visited Aokigahara forest, also widely known as "Suicide Forest," this past weekend. Other YouTubers have visited the forest before but none quite like this. I don't know to what degree Logan Paul planned this, but the end result irreparably damaged his credibility as a sane individual. The signs have really kind of always been there. Only now we have to seriously ask, is Logan Paul a Sociopath?

what did you find logan paul?

Little Kids Are Watching

He knows his audience. How could he believe showing this to children was appropriate? I think little kids do not have the mental capacity to understand death in the same way an adult does. At the same time I don't know if this kind of desensitisation is good or bad for their mental health, but specifically being a channel where the majority of your demographic is children, disqualifies you from catalyst status. It's not bad to want to push the boundary on the taboo but it can't be you. Specifically not in this context, with this audience.

Two Sides

There are two sides to this story. There's the "I want to raise awareness on suicide prevention." and the "I want to break bounds, push taboos, and elevate the game." I believe Logan Paul wanted to do a little bit of both. He thought he could smash two with one hit, but it didn't work. That's not how it works at all! So then why did I do that with this post? adding an insensitive video alongside serious writing..?

How To Talk About It

If all Logan Paul wanted to do was raise suicide awareness, this was a terrible way to do that. If Logan wants to be a serious creator and push boundaries, this was also a terrible way to do that. Again, It simply has to do with audience. Every other one of his videos consists of high energy, careless mayhem. This video had that too, with an unsuspecting serious tone added? No, you can't get away with it pleading ignorance. Not when you had full control every step of the way.

I can see someone making a video like this successfully, but it has to have a significantly more serious tone, and it definitely CAN'T be posted on a channel for kids. I know Logan wants to be the world's greatest entertainer. He wants to do big things--but boy if you really want to go further you have to transcend. Having people see you in a different light, one where you are respected, was already going to be hard to do, but now its going to be even harder.

How to Save Yourself

A great way to save grace would be to get in touch with real suicide prevention organizations and make some commercials with them raising awareness through proper channels. He could even vlog his experience similar to how Jake Paul used to vlog his experience while filming his Disney show. Will he do something like that? It's much more likely he won't, because this was just his second target hit on his smash-two plan. He cares more about elevating his game and for all intents and purposes the commotion this controversy caused was a big win.

PewDiePie Razer Kraken Pro V2 Headset Review

PewDiePie Headset

Today we are unboxing PewDiePie's New custom Headset. It is the Razer Kraken Pro V2 with the red swirly PewDiePie theme. I made an unboxing video but I'm also writing this short review now that I've used it for a little under a month. I did also try out the Burger King Mac N Cheetos but that trash will have no part in my written review. Thank you for understanding and subscribing.

Quality of the Headset

The headset is of good quality overall. If you are the type of person that takes good care of your products, this headset will last you. If you are more rough with your stuff, perhaps your phone is all scratched up or you drop stuff on the daily--then no. I think this headset will get pretty beat up quicker than you would like because the soft cushions are made of a thin material. They feel nice, but will tear easier than most. The overhead band is also made of the same thin material.

Price and Worth

The Headset costs 100 dollars, plus tax and plus shipping depending on where you buy it. You can find the exact same headset minus the PewDiePie branding on amazon for 40 dollars less. Even better, you get amazon's unbeatable 2 day shipping. This headset for 60 dollars is honestly a solid deal. The audio quality from the mic is top class, as good as headsets can get. The overall audio quality is not bad at all. At 60 dollars it can even be considered excellent. Although I feel on consoles it doesn't get as loud as it can on PC. This is because the PS4 controller will not output as much power to the headset as a PC will. It's a shame but not a big deal.

Getting into the full 100 dollar price point for the PewDiePie theme version though. There are $100 headsets that offer more in terms of features and quality. Is this headset worth it? Well that's not the right question you should be asking yourself. Rather, is supporting PewDiePie worth it to you? Because that's what is going on here. If you want to support your favorite YouTuber, throwing your money at this Razer/PewDiePie collaboration is great way to show it. Don't forget that Razer, a multi-million dollar company, has chosen to take a big risk by diverting resources into this project.

Shipping From Razer

I lied on my video saying that the shipping was "pretty good." In reality I waited about 10 days from purchasing the headset to having it in my hands. The actual shipping was in fact just 3 days, but it was processing mode for a full week. I was honestly very impatient and angry. I made a small rant as I was recording the video but in the end decided to cut it out because the video was already too long and I felt my rant was all over the place. The 7 day processing and handling" wait was terrible and comparatively the 3 day shipping wait was "pretty good." I don't know why I left that last part in the video since it comes off as deceptive--OH WELL. I'm sorry!

The good thing is that the headset is, in fact, available on Amazon: Razer PewDiePie Kraken Pro V2 - Analog Gaming Headset for PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4 - Oval Ear Cushions - Neon Red

Uncharted 4 Official Story Trailer

Creative Director, Neil Druckmann, just posted the story trailer for Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. In the post he also mentions how they're nearly done making the game which is great since the game comes out in less than 2 months!

Judging from just the trailer, the new characters seem memorable and overall the game looks promising. Neil even called it "the best trailer in Naughty Dog’s history."

Uncharted 4: A Thiefs End - Story Trailer | PS4

It looks like someone at Naughty Dog "borrowed" concept art from Assassin's Creed. The concept art was used as a painting in what looks like Drake's home. Maybe Drake likes to play Assassin's Creed when he's not hunting for treasure? The only disservice here would be that it was Assassin's Creed and not Tomb Raider. Anyhow, the trailer has now been updated and the concept art removed but here you can see how the painting looked in the trailer before and after:

This is the original concept art by Martin Deschambault who is a Senior Concept Artist at Ubisoft Montreal:

Release Date: April 26th, 2016

How the Internet Ruined Smash Bros.

I was originally going to call this post "How Nintendo Ruined Smash Bros." but after thinking about it further I realized it wasn't Nintendo's Fault at all. Super Smash Bros 4 has been royally ruined by the internet.
