“Batman – The Enemy Within, Episode 4: What Ails You” Review

When I left off my last review of Telltale’s ongoing Batman season, I was wanting more. Well, turns out I got a lot more of what I wanted in the latest release: What Ails You. The title is incredibly apt in that it’s a deeper dive into each character’s driving factors. It creates an incredibly engaging story that barely needs Batman in it at all.

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.

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 […]

Christian’s Top 5 Games of 2017

Wow! What a 2017. Xbox One X confirmed that the future of gaming for Microsoft and Sony is up in the air with nowhere else to go but upgraded graphics and processing. Nintendo Switch arrived and reminded us why Nintendo is Nintendo, innovation for gamers by gamers. On to my top 5!

Brandon’s Top 10 Games of 2017

This year was a series of major highs and some super lows, including both some surprise hits and some serious letdowns. While we started to see what might be the death knell of the AAA-side of gaming, we also saw Nintendo become a major player again, as well as the further sophistication and prominence of indie and mid-tier game developers gaining attention. With that said: here’s my top ten games for the year of 2017. (Number One will totally NOT […]

“Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds” Review

“Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds” Review

Horizon: Zero Dawn was easily one of the best games 2017 had to offer, so getting the chance to dive back into the world is inherently exciting and daunting. Could an expansion live up to the quality of the rest of the game? In the case of The Frozen Wilds, absolutely.

“Batman – The Enemy Within, Episode 3: Fractured Mask” Review

“Batman – The Enemy Within, Episode 3: Fractured Mask” Review

Over the last couple of weeks, there were two notable releases featuring Batman. One is a dumbed down mess that shows Batman getting beat to hell, getting almost all of his toys broken, and making him be a foolish jerk. The other tells a cohesive and engaging story. Let’s talk about the latter! Telltale Games’ Batman – The Enemy Within, Episode 3: Fractured Mask.

“Assassin’s Creed Origins” Review

“Assassin’s Creed Origins” Review

Assassin’s Creed Origins is the first game in the series since 2015, after taking a one year hiatus. Since its inception, Assassin’s Creed series has seen annual releases that were very hit-or-miss in terms of playability and story. Origins set out to become the most ambitious Assassin’s Creed game yet, and the one year break they used to refine every aspect of the game seems to have paid off in droves, as Origins is not only one of the best games […]
