Futuristic guns, deep space battles, bionic arms, and military experiments gone wrong. These are typical things you see in many video games, but how farfetched are they? Do games have the inside track when it comes to future advancements? We take a look at the science of games and how plausible they are, because at The Dadcade, we do science because we care. Today’s topic, firing guns in spa...[Read More]

Gaming as a New Parent Or “All Your Time Are Belong to Son”

Gaming as a New Parent Or “All Your Time Are Belong to Son”

Video games have always been a hobby of mine for as far back as I can remember.  I remember playing my parent’s Atari 2600 in their basement not really knowing what I was doing but enjoying every minute of it.  It wasn’t until a few years later where I received my first console of my own – the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES.)  From that point on I was in love and between my b...[Read More]

How to Continue Gaming Once You Have Kids

How to Continue Gaming Once You Have Kids

At that moment my hopes of taking out a group of noobs from my sniper’s nest are shattered. W...[Read More]

Sony Gold Headset Review

Sony Gold Headset Review

I love sound. I think it is one of the most important parts of a game. Before I had kids I could sit with my surround sound cranked up listening to every spent virtual casing hit virtual ground in Rainbow 6. After I had kids not so much. One of three things would happen when i sat down to play, I could hear the game well from the comfort of my couch and a firefight would wake one of them up, IR...[Read More]

Deciding on a Next Gen Console for Your Family

Deciding on a Next Gen Console for Your Family

Ever since Nintendo took the world by storm with its Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) back in the 80’s, competition has existed in the video game console market. One thing that is for certain, every 8-10 years a new batch of consoles will be released and a new generation/life cycle of video game consoles will begin. With a number of new consoles having come out over the past year, it can ...[Read More]

Welcome to the Dadcade

Welcome to the Dadcade

It all started so simply. A group of dad bloggers branched off to form a specific splinter group where they could discuss what was to many, before the kids I’m assuming, a first love. A place where we could share our enthusiasm and gamertags. A place to schedule some gaming play dates where no one would boot you if you had to go change a diaper real quick. We are the ones who are no stranger...[Read More]
