The Kiccup Protects You From Getting Baby-Kicked in the Junk

By  •  Reviews

Any dad that’s worn a baby carrier knows that there’s a sweet, bundle of joy in front of you that you’ve got to protect. And that is, of course, your testicles.

Look, you’re a good dad and you’ve got a handle on that fatherhood thing. But getting kicked in the junk is not fun. That’s why the Kiccup exists – it’s a shield that hangs below your baby carrier and protects you from wild baby-kicks.

Every warrior needs armor, and gentlemen, if you’re not protecting your meatballs, then what in the world are we doing here? Amirite or amirite?

Adorable Tykes Review Radiohead’s “Paranoid Android”

By  •  News

Kids can be brutally honest. They can also remind you how old you are and how the music you love is terribly lame. This has been happening for generations so don’t feel too bad that your kids won’t ever fully appreciate Every Rose Has It’s Thorn or anything.

Noisey is slowly becoming one of my favorite channels on YouTube, simply because of the “You Review” bits where kids spout off opinions on music. It’s one of those “F*CK, I wish I had thought of that” pieces of entertainment you just can’t bypass on a rainy day.

Review: Mario Kart 7 for Nintendo 3DS

Review: Mario Kart 7 for Nintendo 3DS

Being a Nintendo fan for the better part of my 31 years, I’ve known frustration. I’ve been through the gauntlet on NES games, tasted the satisfaction of SNES, felt the burn of multiplayer party games on the N64, GameCube and Wii, and gone it alone on all the handhelds – GameBoy, GameBoy Advance, DS and DSi to name a few. But the 3DS brings a new mix of all those things – frustration, satisfaction, multiplayer fun and portable distraction. So is the story of Mario Kart 7 – a game that has flaws, sure, but is a whole lot of fun – and championed-in a very important 3DS update.

That update included the ability to join friends’ games via the friends list – a vital function of the friends list initially left out. As well, players met through Mario Kart now show up in your Mii Plaza. But these things aren’t as important as the gameplay in Mario Kart 7. After all, it doesn’t matter if you can join a friend’s game if you’re not interested in doing so. It’s good news then, that Mario Kart 7 is loads of fun, despite some quirks and problems, and it’s a really fun game to play with your kids for all of the obvious reasons.The gameplay in Mario Kart 7 is, at its most basic, the same thing you always expect from a Mario Kart franchise game: you race, you shoot stuff at each other, you win, you lose. And if we just took MK7 straight based on that, I’d still be on-board for a near-perfect score. Just fair warning.
