Ep. 173 – Great Mario, Wrong Zelda, Right Final Fantasy

This week the New Dad’s discuss their battles to limit their kid’s screen time (especially hard since they hated that happening as a gaming kids themselves).

Trevor speaks on how well Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury work for kids, also makes an impassioned argument for Final Fantasy 12 Remaster being the perfect Gaming Dad RPG.

This week’s Gaming Dad Victory goes to Perrozoso and his triumph of dusting off his old gaming gear.
