Hello and welcome to Parents Press Play & Friends where we talk about unique and interesting topics across gaming, entertainment, and technology for people of all ages. Parents Press Play & Friends is part of the Covering Videogames Network.

This week, in Episode 214: Pre-E3 Madness, we are joined by 1 Dad and 1 Friend. I am your Host Kaleb Rutherford, @kahleeb on Twitter, and joining me this week is my little minion, “Kase-O,” Kase Rutherford.

On the Show, we talk about: Pre-E3 leaks, E3 predictions, Google Stadia, Pokemon Direct, Nintendo Labo VR, and Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age on Nintendo Switch.


Welcome to Episode 18 of Parents Press Play. This week, in I am Blitzz5, 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 Grimm, SteamOS, the Steambox, Pokemon X & Y 3DS Edition, Bruce Lee Ultimate Collection, Dan’s new phone, and we close with our What the Heck!?!? segment.


We start off this week talking about the Television series Grimm and how Kaleb is looking forward to seeing season 3 on Friday, October 26, 2013. In this show’s case, Friday is not a place where Grimm is meant to die. Kaleb explains this as well.


Next up, Dan tells us about the upcoming Pokemon X & Y 3DS XL Edition and how his son was addicted to it, and the game, at PAX.

Michael tells us about the SteamOS, Steambox, and Kaleb wonders if Valve is about to announce Half-Life 3.


Up next, Dan tells us about the changes made in the Bruce Lee Collection.


Dan also got a new phone: the Pantech Marauder.  He tells us all about it.


Dan asks the question: What the HECK Happened to SEGA!?!? Where are their games at?


We close out the show with our Band of the Week: Cloud Control.  Originally from Australia but now in the UK this 4 piece released their debut album Bliss in may 2011 and their sophomore effort Dream Cave was released a couple of weeks ago. Their current single “Scar” as well as the whole album sounds a lot like some of the alternative or underground music that was released in the late 80s and early 90s.

You can view their Facebook page here.
