Mega Dads

Mega Dads was launched in March 2014 as a gaming community dedicated to and created by gamers who balance their passion for video games with the responsibilities of adulthood. Spouses, children and careers can take up a considerable amount of time and trying to fit a time consuming hobby into your day can be quite a challenge. Mega Dads presents a humorous look at that life.



We’re Natasha and Nester, a geeky couple from the Midwest! We love to stream a variety of Nintendo games, including Pokemon! We’re extremely excited for the release of Splatoon 2 on the Switch!
