Welcome to Episode 21 of Parents Press Play. This week, in Excuse Me I Have to Blow My Nose, we have all three Dads together to discuss the latest in technology, entertainment, and videogames.


This week, Kaleb, @kahleeb on Twitter, Michael, @blitzz5 on Twitter, and Dan, @ppmoddad on Twitter talk about the TV Show Vikings, Madden 25, Happy Meal Books, Pokemon X & Y, Watch Dog Delay, Windows 8.1, and we close with our Band of the Week.

We start off the show, this week, with Dan telling us about the Blu-ray version of Vikings he has been watching.  Michael also wants you to know about the story Dan wrote on his blog about Cherry Medicine.

Next, Kaleb turns the conversation to Madden 25 and how it is the best football game they have made despite a few issues. Kaleb wrote up a full review of Madden 25 over at CVGames.


We then talk about McDonalds and their upcoming Happy Meal promotion that will include a book with each Fast Food Meal.



Up next, we discuss Pokemon X and Pokemon Y and how this is the best version of Pokemon ever made.

Our conversation then moves on to the Watch Dog delay and how it impacts “bundled consoles” preordered at GameStop and Amazon.

We then talk about the release of Windows 8.1 and some of the features found in the first major update to Windows 8.


Finally, we end with our Band of the Week featuring Skylanders Swap Force Soundtrack by Lorne Balfe. This album is available digitally at all major providers found online.

In 1997, Kaleb started CVGames and since then ttended and covered a variety of different events for the public including PAX, QuakeCon, E3, and many others. With over 20 E3 events covered, there isn't much that surprises Kaleb anymore in the industry as he has seen it all.

Kaleb is married to Emily and they have been together over 20 years. They have 4 boys who share a passion and love for technology and gaming as well.

Kaleb started Parents Press Play to begin podcasting and reaching a more casual segment of the world that tends to have coverage dominated by by "Hardcore," or "Core players. CVGames still exists to cover that section of users.

Combining CVGames and Parents Press Play together, Kaleb created CVGN: The Covering Video Games Network. While world domination is unlikely, our passionate team continues to strive to inform the different audiences with content we are passionate about.
