Saying Goodbye to the Xbox One

Saying Goodbye to the Xbox One

The Xbox and I go way back. Back when I still lived at home with my parents, my brother and I shared consoles. More often than not, the original Xbox was in my room because I had an obsession with Return to Castle Wolfenstein and it’s multiplayer. When I got my first full time job after college, the Xbox 360 was the first big purchase I made and most of my gaming took place on that console e...[Read More]

Why Sony Doesn’t Need A New Console Next Year

Why Sony Doesn’t Need A New Console Next Year

You may have heard the rumors of Sony looking to release another new console in 2018. Just four years into the original console release and not even a full year into the release of the Pro.

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]

OPINION: A Knee Jerk Reaction to a Leaked Nintendo Controller

If you’ve been around the internet over the last day or so you may have seen the image in this posts header pop up. That is a supposed “leaked” photo of Nintendo’s unconfirmed next console, the Nintendo NX. Although unconfirmed I will totally take my time to sit here and write about it as if it is in fact 100% true. Since I’ve told you now that I’m working under...[Read More]

Best Starter Video Games for Preschoolers (That You’ll Love Too!)

If you were to go into any video game store, you would most likely be hard pressed to find a video game that was age appropriate for your preschooler. The fact of the matter is, their hand eye coordination just isn’t there yet and the mechanics and stories will be over their head.

OPINION: The Video Game Industry is Broken and Consumers Aren’t Helping

A few days ago my partner in crime at The Dadcade, Nick, published an article citing that the video game industry is broken and put a lot of the blame on big publishers for the way they handle releases and DLC packs. Most notably, was the recent announcement of the Star Wars: Battlefront DLC pack that will cost gamers 50 bucks for a couple map packs post release. Don’t get me wrong, I can...[Read More]

OPINION: I’ll Be Returning to Destiny, and You Should Too

Destiny was a game that I looked forward to for months before it released. I can still remember the day it came out. I had a job interview and took the whole day off from my job. The interview lasted until noon and then I had the rest of the day to enjoy Destiny. And enjoy it I did – for a solid few months. The story was lacking, but the gameplay itself was incredibly fun – until that ...[Read More]
