Here are the worst excuses for fathers in video games

The past week in games has been all about strong, imposing men getting in touch with their softer side and nurturing their young – well, and cardboard boxes. Both Kiryu Kazuma in Yakuza 6 and Kratos in God of War may not quite be...

Binding of Isaac narrator's identity revealed

The Binding of Isaac has one of the most rabid fanbases I’ve ever seen. They are constantly searching for any new grain of understanding about the mechanics and story. The Reddit page for the game still hosts over 97,000 sub...

Dad replaces son's cardboard Nintendo Switch with real one

It's not hard to understand why @mohikan1974 has such a large following on Twitter. He always seems to be doing fun and creative things, usually with his son, Kazutoyo, like role-playing police in a crime scene. The creative spirit has flow...

Solid dad joke

Everyone knows dads tell the best jokes. But, if you got this on Christmas, did you know that you're legally allowed to set fire to his favorite recliner? Rules are rules, pops. @DMZilla [Twitter]

Close to home: dad throws son at foes in Dad Quest

I don't know why fatherhood has become such a prevalent theme among indie games lately, but I like it. There was Octodad, then Dad by the Sword, then Dad Beat Dads. Now there is Dad Quest, and it reminds me a lot of my own childhood. Being ...

Octodad: Dadliest Catch to get Wii U release on October 29

While children are dressing up as Marvel superheroes and/or Disney princesses and adults are doing the same but with sexy versions (think Ant Man but with assless chaps), one humble cephalopod will be dressing up as a regular dad. Sure, he'...

 
 
 
 
Shower with your Dad Sim photo

Showering with my dad was a surreal, terrifying experience

Yesterday, I got an early Steam code for a game called Shower With Your Dad Simulator 2015. I instantly took Mad Max and Metal Gear Solid V, threw them out the window and thought no more of them. Showering with my dad was clearly what I nee...

Belated Father's Day: Throw babies in Dad Beat Dads

True story: my dad used to be quite the brawler. At a stocky 5'5" (165 cm), he was often underestimated. What he lacks in height and reach he makes up for in tenacity. What I'm trying to say is that I'm pretty sure my dad could beat up you...

Everything is your dad in the new Dad by the Sword trailer

Yesterday, what is probably the greatest trailer you will ever see was released. It also being Father’s Day, that trailer was of course for indie Sword-em-up Dad by the Sword. The website can explain the game way better than I ever c...

Octodad on Vita will have same-screen co-op

Young Horses, the developer of Octodad, has noted that the Vita version of the game will be released on May 26. It'll cost you $14.99, but since it features Cross-Buy, a PS4 purchase already netted you the Vita version for free. The best pa...

Anti-dads, claymores, and hotdogs in Dad by the Sword

While at PAX East, I had the pleasure of interviewing Kepa just before the show floor closed on the first day. He and I were both frazzled, but that didn't stop him from smiling and refusing to take my bait to say that his game Dad by the ...

Make eye contact with this super cute Octodad vinyl

To distract myself from the incessant sports talk happening in Destructoid chat this laid-back afternoon, I've been staring at the wonderful 7" Octodad: Dadliest Catch record. What a cutie. Nice to see Young Horses stick with its running ga...

Dad by the Sword features limp, floppy swords

Dad by the Sword is iOS developer Rocketcat Games' first entry into the PC market and boy howdy, is it a doozy. Part sword-fighting simulator, part long-running dad joke, all demented loveliness. Rocketcat's design experiment-turned-v...

GIFs surface for Shower With Your Dad Simulator 2015

So, this is a GIF of a small child trying to find the correct naked dad to shower with at high speed.  The GIF is from an indie game called Shower With Your Dad Simulator 2015: Do You Still Shower With Your Dad and we know very l...

An irony-free feel good fan video about Dads

There is a whole genre of comedy dedicated to uncomfortable emotions about Dads. Pierre's Doo Dah Doo Doo rap is one example. That's doesn't mean there isn't plenty of room in the internet's heart for honest, not-weird affection for Dads a...
