“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.

“Far Cry 5” Review

“Far Cry 5” Review

The Far Cry series has always been known for its over-the-top violence, eccentric characters, and beautiful landscapes. It always put players in remote locations, jungles, mountains, and islands as they battled control from a tyrannical dictator and saved the citizens, engaging in mindless bloodshed along the way. But while the previous installments had stunning scenery and memorable villains, Far Cry 5 seems to have been streamlined for a more casual audience. While Joseph Seed is a deranged villain, he pales in […]

[GDC 2018] “Headsnatchers” Hands-On

[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.

“Kingdom Come: Deliverance” Review

“Kingdom Come: Deliverance” Review

So after having played Kingdom Come: Deliverance for several hours, running and horseback riding through 15th century Bohemia, braving the elements and vicious bandits, and occasionally eating an overripe apple, I’ve made a very important discovery: It must have really sucked to be a peasant in the Middle Ages.

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

“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 […]

Neon Chrome – 10tons of Switch  

Neon Chrome – 10tons of Switch

We’ve started a new video series to take a look at each of 10tons’ games on the Nintendo Switch. The first game is Neon Chrome, a dual-stick shooter with a Rogue Legacy-style roguelite progression system.

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

“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

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.
