SmashPad Talkies – Bloodborne

Sony’s newest PS4 exclusive is a new title by From Software, makers of the Dark Souls and Demon’s Souls games, that seeks to change the focus from a defensive-oriented game into one that is about about offense.

“Game of Thrones, Episode 3: The Sword in the Darkness” Review

“Game of Thrones, Episode 3: The Sword in the Darkness” Review

“If you presume to speak of my dragons, choose your next words wisely.” — Daenerys Targaryen These words close out the third episode to TellTale’s Game of Thrones game.

“Axiom Verge” Review

“Axiom Verge” Review

Side scrolling action/exploration games, or Metroidvania-style games, are very popular with a certain subset of gamers. Maybe it’s the non-linearity of the gameplay, or the wildly differing styles these games can have, but people really seem to love them. By people I mean people who actually play games, and not publishers, because they seem to […]

“Life is Strange, Episode 2: Out of Time” Review

The first episode of Life is Strange gave its audience a brief look at the students in the halls of Blackwell Academy, a private art school tucked in the small town of Arcadia Bay, Oregon.

This second category has been where most of the […]

It’s been three years since the release of Mario Party 9, and while that game came with fresh gameplay concepts, it didn’t exactly translate to the same fun that previous games in the series had. Unfortunately, the latest entry in the series builds upon these concepts, and the result is a Mario Party game that’s both […]

“Code Name: S.T.E.A.M.” Review

“Code Name: S.T.E.A.M.” Review

First announced after their Nintendo Direct presentation at E3 2014, Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. was a title that truly came out of left field. The company seemed to hit one out of the park at E3, and they continued to surprise with this new IP headed by Intelligent Systems of Advance Wars and Fire Emblem fame.

“Kirby and the Rainbow Curse” Review

“Kirby and the Rainbow Curse” Review

The Kirby series is one that Nintendo doesn’t seem afraid to play around with.  Aside from his usual adventures, Kirby has had his own racing game, a pinball game, and even a TV show.  While that last example was probably meaningless, Kirby’s latest adventure is a follow-up to the now 10-year old Kirby: Canvas Curse, and […]
