Try Harder: Everything Happens For a Reason

Try Harder is usually just for FIRST Members but we thought this would be good to post just so you could get to know us a little better. Everyone goes through challenges in their lives. It's all how you respond to them.

    My mom was diagnosed with MS in 2012. I know how hard that can be to deal with and how fast her liveliness depreciated. My mom has definitely become my best friend since.

    I was never a huge fan of SA, not that i disliked it in anyway, I just didnt really have much exposure to it aside from AVGN back in the day. But since you guys have started Game Attack I think you have all grown in a special way, one that can actually get newbies and old veiwers to attach to you and get invested in your content. Well done guys, and keep up the fantastic work.

    It's hard to say I have a favorite among the Screwattack and Game Attack crew since you all bring so much that I love but Bolen always stood out among you all with me. This week's podcast and post show just showed me why. I've also had a hell of life as far as family tragedy and its taken me a long time to kinda be normal again. Thank you for talking about this so candidly. If I had heard this during the roughest parts of it all I think the healing process would have been easier. This will definitely be one I share with people even if it means they have to watch it with my account.

    Great show guys so great that it is prompting me to comment on my first video ever. Even tho I've watched every single game attack show and almost all of the screw attack shows. My single mother actually passed away on Halloween back in 2009 from H1N1 as well after a long struggle with schizoaffective disorder. I lived in that hellish disease till she passed because it was that or commit her so I can totally relate with not wanting to chat it up about your personal b.s. to everyone you meet but thank you for sharing it helps me as well on a personal level at the very least to know my mom wasn't the only one in America to die from swine flu and having to deal with a shitty childhood doesn't make you a shitty adult.

    Bolen is as secretive as Gavin.

    I think the real tragedy of this post show was Bolen's lack of puns. 

    All jokes aside, this was a great episode all around. It shows the true merit of the Try Hard podcast where one episode can be all about HOLLY!!ween and the next one can drop some serious shit like this. And I'll be honest, even though I've been following the SA(now GA) podcast off and on since the beginning, Bolen was one of the regulars that I knew the least about. This post show really helped me get to know him more (along with everyone else) and appreciate his jovial personality. 

    I love this show.

    You know, I only started watching you guys as you became Game Attack, and one thing that always kind of bothered me was Bolen's constant smirk. I thought he was the smuggest motherfucker of all time. But after hearing him talk about all the bad shit that has happened to him and still have that smirk, I've realised it's not smugness it's just him appreciating his life and not letting his shitty past control his future.

    Bolen has endured so much in life, and he perseveres. He is a true inspiration.

    This has been the deepest most awesome SA podcast I have ever watched (except for the monte cristo podcast). Been a huge fan for the past 4 years. Keep up the great work and good luck on your future endeavors.

    Dog pile of puns on Bolen... Awesome. I imagine a SA short with everyone making puns and Bolen desperate to pun and can't.
