Ep. 22: Video Game Dads


Hey, daddios! Tab’s back to discuss fatherhood in games. We chat about the roles fathers play in many games, how they’re portrayed, the ways in which loss and absence motivate and define them, and (most importantly) which Dream Daddy did we date first? We also touch on Valve’s Steam Deck, the uproar over a recent Kotaku headline, Skull and Bones going into alpha, and what we’ve been playing.
