    You playing on XB1 or PC?
     
    Edit: NVM, just noticed this was in the Console section.  We have a decent sized group playing on PS4, but haven't seen many on XB1.  I'll keep an eye on my FL to see if anyone is on and send them your way.

Talks move on to Battleborn (with and without Tap), Alienation, Hearthstone expansion, revisiting Gears, revisiting Warframe, anime, Ghostbusters, the Revenant, The Forest and listener feedback.

    Chocolate & peanut butter, biscuits & gravy, sweet & sour, Captain & Tennille, some things were just made to go together. This episode of the Dads Hideout podcast recreates that synergy with talk of kids playing house, land war in Chuck E. Cheese, rockin' the projects, and laying down the law.  Other topics include Final Fantasy XV, The Division, Dead Star, PC upgrades, Battelborn, the new mobile "game" from Nintendo, Daredevil S2, Godfather Epic, He Never Died (unfortunately), and... Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip? At least we got chicken!

    Double you pleasure, double your fun, two Guest Dads are better than one! Dads Hideout favorites Chris (xJediDadx) and Craig (Mr_Linford) help fill in our hosting holes with talk of year-round schooling, commuting by bike, and toilet diving. Then it's on to grunting about Far Cry Primal, more Division Beta, Street Fighter (almost) V, Fallout DLC fallout, World of Tanks, Final Fantasy Explorers, more Deadpool, and a whole heck of a lot of TV shows. Call your favorite pizza delivery and settle in for this one!

    Ruiner got a reaction from bADiTCH in 14 day communications ban.   
    So, Devil's Advocate here, "cursing out" people, regardless if it was warranted or not, will still get you. I think you can still "report" quitters, so maybe try that next time. I know that sucks in a MOBa and can ruin your game.
     
    Having said that, I am a dad and have had to quit games before because of a bad dream, needing a drink, etc., it wasn't always to be a douche to the rest of the team. The people in your game might have had something similar come up, so try to keep that in mind.
     
    For the other one, they can ban anything deemed offensive, it doesn't have to be the "most offensive." Are there bigger issues out there? Sure, but at this point I'd say they will be keeping closer tabs on you, so unless you want to lose your account to a bigger ban-hammer, might want to play anlottle nicer.

    The dads are back and dealing with another case of V.D.  That's right, Valentine's Day! Join in as we discuss life insurance, droppin' bombs on your moms, old school PDA's, basketball blues, and going nuts. Then the lights go dim and the music comes on for talk of Deadpool (game), Metro Last Light, Mad Max, Star Wars Heroes, Helldivers, Batman: Arkham Knight, Dying Light, Deadpool (movie), Unfriended, Marvel madness, Contracted, The Shannara Chronicles, and more Making a Murderer.  Pucker up, Buttercup!

    Ruiner got a reaction from xBlueshirts102x in Fallout 4   
    Yep, customizing is the way to go. One piece of advice to those new to the series, it helps to just focus on 2-3 types of weapon/ammo.  That way you can sell the other types to buy more of the ones you need. I usually role with a rifle of some kind for long range, 10MM for mid, and a shotgun for close.  Obviously your tastes will vary, and that doesn't take any of the melee, explosives, or energy weapons into consideration, so feel free to mix and match.
    I also keep a minigun and/or Fatboy back in my stash for those special enemies/missions when you need a bit more punch (Radscorpions or Deathclaws).  Keeping those locked up means you aren't overburdened to carry other things, and they are always just a Fast Travel away.
    Similarly, it's nice to be able to hack every computer, sneak past/steal from every NPC, pick every lock, make every gun, etc. but again, try to pick 2-3 "skills" to invest in for the long term and get those maxed.  Spreading things around seems like a great idea at first, and it's good to try things out to see what you like, but eventually you are going to hit a wall and usually the last level of a skill/perk gives you a really good bonus.

    Agreed, other than Gears 3, I don't plan on installing or playing any of those again... or for the first time. I'm sure they will keep adding more as time goes on, but that voting thing was clearly just for show.

    These dads are cruisin', can't stop, won't stop movin'. It's like they got this music in their mind saying "derail the Hype Train!"  Dad talk covers joining the Cub $couts, first-time driving lessons, soccer surprises, and kids dropping calls. Then, at listener request, the kid gloves come off as the dads revisit Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Destiny, Mad Max, Shadow of Mordor, Rock Band 4, and that hot new release, Monopoly. Other topics include Minority Report, Home, Hand of God, South Park, Arrow, and the apparently hot and raunchy adult comedy, the Muppet Show.  Those who can let the hate flow through them until the end shall be rewarded.

    Ruiner got a reaction from MagmaFlow in Rocket League Podcast Tournament: Part Deux: Rocket Harder   
    The Dads Getting Grounded crew is hosting another Rocket League tournament for all the great podcasting friends they have met over the past two years. This one will be open to both PC and PS4. Let the grudge matches begin!

    Here are the updated guidelines:

    Participants
    Each podcast team will consist of 2-4 members from that show Team member names must be submitted prior to Game 1 Elligible podcast participants must have appeared on more than half of the total episodes of that podcast -or- Appeared on 6 or more of the previous 10 episodes (pre-recorded segments are acceptable). Partcipants who are on multiple podcasts must choose one show to represent Matches
    The number of players in each match will be agreed upon between the teams The team with more people can chose which players sit out that match (preferred method) -or- The team with fewer players can substitute an AI partner (Rookie level) Teams will play each other in a randomly seeded bracket-style tournament Winner will be decided by best two out of three matches Default scoring/game settings It will be up to the two teams to decide when is a good time to play their match during scheduled week. The final match will be played as best three out of five matches, because its more dramatic that way Once again, the DGG crew will be playing in an effort to raise money for their Extra Life pages, because, they failed int he first round thein the last tournament. Again, they are asking all participants to play for the charity of their choice as well.

    To sweeten the prize for the winner, we are also asking all losing teams to donate $5 for each of their participating members to go to the tournament winner's charity of choice. So each team will be putting $10-20 on the line, depending on how many are willing/able to join in. Obviously, this part is optional since funds are tight for all of us from time to time, but teams can also donate more than the $5 if they wish.

    The teams participaying are:

    Confirmed Teams
    Gamers in Beta
    The OMG! Hour
    Everyday Gamers
    The 40Cast
    [bRACKET!] Podcast
    Fluxtaposed
    This is Only a Test - (tested.com)
    and of course,
    Dads Getting Grounded
     
    Week 1 - Oct 18-24
    Week 2 - Oct 25-31
    Week 3 - Nov 1-7 (preferably duing the Extra Life Marathon on Nov 7)
     
    If teams are not able to meet to play during their scheduled week... then we'll figure something else out.  Matches should only take 20-30 minutes tops though, so try to be flexibleif necessary.

    It's been a busy couple of weeks, but the dads are able to use their "purty mouths" to bring you the latest episode of the Dads Hideout podcast. Christian returns so Damian can work out the kinks on the site revamp, while Dan and Jeremy recover from family vacations. Topics include kids moving out, back to school adjustments, kid hijinx synergy, and life in the holler. There's also a round up of the Rocket League Podcast Tournament, owning arcade cabinets, Mad Max hype, Rainbow Moon, Trainwreck, God Bless America, and our predictions on what Damian watched. Put the lotion in the basket and press play!
