“Octopath Traveler” Review

“Octopath Traveler” Review

When “Project Octopath Traveler” was first unveiled at the Nintendo Switch Reveal Event in late 2016, its visual style left gamers with collective “Ooos and Ahhs.”  We knew it would be a title to look out for, but we didn’t know that it would turn out to be a feature title that would end up pioneering the Switch as a go-to destination for JRPGs down the road.

“Shadow of the Tomb Raider” Review

“Shadow of the Tomb Raider” Review

Rise of the Tomb Raider launched to quite a bit of praise, especially from yours truly.  A timed Xbox One-exclusive at the time, I went as far as to call Rise of the Tomb Raider the Uncharted 2 to what the 2013 reboot was.  At that, because it launched alongside Fallout 4, it didn’t really get the attention it deserved, but we’ve fortunately still been blessed enough to see its sequel, Shadow of the Tomb Raider come to fruition, and […]

Patrick’s Top 10 Games of 2017

I’ve traditionally been a little bit of an outlier in the Game of the Year system here at SmashPad, largely because I tend to go into the year knowing what my top ten is likely to be at the end. This year looked to be the same, until pleasant surprises starting coming from what felt like all directions, and I had to seriously rethink my list by the time it was all over. Some games were victims of the “blind” […]

Josh’s Top 5 Games of 2017

Josh’s Top 5 Games of 2017

I still don’t have a Switch. Not because I don’t want one, but because there is still so much content coming out for 2016’s games that it’s hard to keep track of all the new releases in 2017. Battlefield 1 still dominated my playlist at the beginning of the year all the way to the summer, with DICE fully supporting the game continuously. However, since the GOTY awards are only about new full releases and not DLC, it has not […]
