DragonLance helped define me as a person. I am a huge fan of Lord of the Rings, Kingskiller Chronicles, Forgotten Realms, Dungeons and Dragons, and by extension of that tabletop gaming in general. My love for these stories led to a love for storytelling, which heavily influences my life today! I love that I have a job that enables and requires me to tell stories, even if it’s a simple commercial. ...[Read More]
I recently went to PAX West and it was amazing! Check this video where I go over the Daddy Gamer PAX West 2017 experience! I got to play some really fun games, got some really cool opportunities, and got some pretty neat swag to bring back home with me!
Quest for the Code is an oddity of a game that sits very close to my heart and relates to something that has always been pretty important to me. Asthma, more specifically what happens during an attack and how to manage it effectively. It’s an educational game centered around this idea, and packed around it is an assortment of characters and a plot that MST3K would have had a blast with. I wa...[Read More]
Summer Games Done Quick, what is it? Speedrunning, what is that? Gamers play for charity? I didn’t know they did that. These are probably some questions going through your head right now going into this article. So when I had the opportunity to attend this years event, I set out to get a deeper look into this event and the people behind it. So here we go!
Father’s day really got me thinking about Dad in video games. A lot of games either have the dad completely absent with no mention or his role is simply one of existence. So I put together a list of memorable Video Game Dads and what made them so memorable. Covering everything from Nintendo to Zombie Hunting Cowboys, there are Dads of all sorts and sizes in video games. These eight Dads are ...[Read More]
This was probably the most fun I’ve had making an episode yet! Going in with the intention of having a different look and feel to the skit segments was a really neat experience and I hope it’s not the last time I shoot in this style! The idea came to me when we actually did loose a set of keys for quite awhile. I had recently started playing LA Noire again and asking Lil’ Gamer w...[Read More]
This was a game that was a blast to play and review! The entire family got in on it, whether they were playing or not! Frima definitely created something special in their lighthearted yet challenging platformer. Chariot is casual enough for someone to just play through and enjoy the visuals but offers plenty of optional challenges that will grit the teeth of the hardiest players. Making this episo...[Read More]
The Last of Us, is such a great game! The narrative helps pull you into everything it has to offer. Though too intense to share with Lil’ Gamer I seriously connected with the heavy Father Daughter tones throughout. I was really into it from start to finish and can now see why it is so highly praised. It is an emotional roller coaster, I laughed, cried, and jumped my way through The Last of U...[Read More]

In late 2013, I made a list of a bunch of ideas for content I could produce regularly for YouTube. Mostly comedy sketches and recurring character ideas, of all the ideas the one I least expected to dive into was “video game reviews”. As a fan of guys like JonTron, The Completionist, Brutal Moose, SpaceHamster, and many more, it seemed like a lot of fun. However, I didn’t know how to capture gamepl...[Read More]
