“A Way Out” Review

“A Way Out” Review

Whether or not you believe Josuf Fares purposely brought the attention that came with him to The Game Awards, his latest project A Way Out is definitely one that turned heads. A Way Out is an interesting take on both local and online co-op. It’s also one that barely scratches the surface on what a game like this can do.

[GDC 2018] “Headsnatchers” Hands-On

Local multiplayer party games have seen somewhat of a return to form as of late.  After all, who doesn’t want to go back to the times when we went to our friends’ places and lied on our bellies playing Streets of Rage, Mario Kart, or GoldenEye? We got our hands on Headsnatchers at GDC this week and couldn’t help but burst out laughing and having fun like we were in grade school, and it was a fantastic feeling.

“Life is Strange: Before the Storm – Bonus Episode: Farewell” Review

If you’re a fan of Life is Strange, particularly its excellent prequel mini-series Before the Storm, you undoubtedly picked up the Deluxe Edition of the game for the bonus episode. Whether or not you have the Deluxe Edition, all you should know is that the bonus episode is excellent, and it does more than enough to appeal to any fan of the game, even if you didn’t touch Before the Storm.

“Monster Hunter: World” Review

“Monster Hunter: World” Review

It would be an understatement to say that Capcom’s Monster Hunter series is one with a rabid fanbase. The franchise has enjoyed most of its historical success on handheld systems like the PlayStation Portable and Nintendo 3DS, but because the best games in the series have mostly been on handheld save for some enhanced ports on the Wii and Wii U, it hasn’t exactly taken off in the west until now. Built from the ground up using the raw power of […]

“Super Mario Cereal” Review

Yep, Nintendo is back in the cereal business in the most Nintendo way possible, and as far as taste goes, it’s a great breakfast choice… as long as you can find one at retail value.

SmashPad’s Most Anticipated Games of 2018

SmashPad’s Most Anticipated Games of 2018

With 2018 finally upon us and everybody seemingly back to work, we can breathe a sigh of relief that 2017 is finally over.  And if you’re not, that’s completely fine, because 2017 had more great games than you can imagine, and there’s no way anybody that enjoys video games actually put all the time they wanted to in their full slate of 2017 releases.

“Super Mario Odyssey” Review

“Super Mario Odyssey” Review

Super Mario Odyssey does things that no other game before or after it could or ever would do, and that’s one of many reasons why it’s a must-have for anybody with a liking for video games.

“South Park: The Fractured But Whole” Review

“South Park: The Fractured But Whole” Review

South Park: The Stick of Truth was one of the surprise hits of 2014, so it was hardly a surprise when a sequel was announced a year later.  After a couple delays, the latest game is here, and for better or for worse, it’s more of the same.

“Life is Strange: Before the Storm – Episode 2: Brave New World” Review

“Life is Strange: Before the Storm – Episode 2: Brave New World” Review

Life is Strange: Before the Storm really had no business being good, especially since it doesn’t feature the time travel mechanic that helped make the first so unique.  Before the Storm is actually every bit as engaging if not more so than the initial season, showing off what the game’s writers can really do with a good plot and fantastic character development. What Is It? The second episode in this prequel series continues a day after the events in Awake.  […]
