Experiencing the Wonders of an E3 Press Conference

Experiencing the Wonders of an E3 Press Conference

It all started with rumors of swag.   I’ve always wanted to attend E3, but have never been able to… until this year. I bought a badge as soon as they went on sale so this is my very first visit to E3. I’m what the kids call a ‘n00b’ for an event like this. You see, this year the Entertainment Software Association opened up 15,000 tickets for members of the public to purchase and visit the exp...[Read More]

Kids, it is time we sat down and had a little heart to heart. Let’s give the piggy back rides a break for a second. Let’s put down the dolls and the cars. Yes, let’s even turn off the video games for awhile. We’re going to have story time. No, it isn’t time for bed yet don’t worry. There is a cheesy line from an old movie you may or may not watch, It’s A W...[Read More]

The Dadcade is (at it’s core) about a bunch of dads who grew up with video games, that love video games and love their kids. As video games get defined more and more as a true artistic medium, it’s great to see characters representing our core beliefs and in some cases even help shape our views as fathers. So here is our list of twelve of the greatest father figures in video games, in ...[Read More]

Dadcade Fathers Day Gift Guide

Brace yourselves, Fathers Day is coming and with it an influx of ties, coffee mugs and if you’re lucky a voucher for a car wash. At least Mom can boil down that macaroni art and make some lunch out of it. So maybe you should just stare in the mirror and work on your “Oh Wow! This is a super cool tie” face or you can very subtly drop some hints by sharing, liking, or discussing th...[Read More]

Elevate Your Game This Season With Bulletproof Coffee

Elevate Your Game This Season With Bulletproof Coffee

As a thirty-three-year-old husband, father of two, over full time worker, gamer, part time blogger and just a full time human in general, it is safe to say that the blood pumping through my veins is less red/white blood cells, plasma and platelets and more coffee. Like way more coffee. A ton of coffee. All coffee. Before last week I could argue that there was no bad cup of coffee given the right c...[Read More]

Violence in Video Games and Your Kids

Violence in Video Games and Your Kids

I don’t know how we’ve been a semi legitimate dad centric video game site for over a year and not once brought it up sooner. Apologies. Thanks for being patient with us. I’m going to attempt to shine a light on the grey area that is this topic. Violence in video games, does it cause violence in kids? Well that really depends on who you ask…   If you ask me, I’m g...[Read More]

It’s All Fun and Games Until You Get Winded Tying Your Shoes

It’s All Fun and Games Until You Get Winded Tying Your Shoes

Believe it or not video games were not always my only hobby. Once, back in the days of plentiful free time, I would go to the gym, play Hockey or Basketball, hang out outside, even draw or paint. Video games, while my first love, served as a sort of auxiliary hobby when I was tired or I couldn’t get out to do anything else. As most parents know, it isn’t always easy to get out and do t...[Read More]

Using Math to Make Your Next Video Game Purchase

The heart of this site is just some Dads who share a love of gaming and try their best to continue to do what they love while raising a family. As we’ve said before, kids fill the void that was once occupied by a plethora of free time and disposable income. In one of my earlier posts I talked about my methods on still continuing to game and a talking point on that was how much more choosey I...[Read More]

A Parenting Perspective in Games

A Parenting Perspective in Games

Nothing changes your perspective on life more so than becoming a parent. Used to love staying up late? Well, now your baby could be up any minute needing a diaper change and a feeding. You used to wonder why would anyone drive under 80 MPH to now, why would anyone go over the posted speed limit? I would never use TV as a babysitter to I need to really use the bathroom and so on. So it’s a sa...[Read More]

Five years of gaming- Reblog

Time is one of the most precious assets we have. It is something everyone wishes they had more of but can’t have. This statement is true for Gamers and doubly true for parents. So when Gil from FanDads had his daughter five years ago he focused on what was most important, family. But as any gamer can tell you a lot can happen in half a decade of gaming. Half a Decade in Gaming Five years. It...[Read More]
