“Red Dead Redemption 2” Review

“Red Dead Redemption 2” Review

It’s finally time for a review of Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2. Months after release? Such is the life of a gamer with too much going on and yet so much to do within a massive game. Was it worth it? Or was it a chore? It’s ultimately a fair amount of both, depending on how you handle yourself or how much you care. Let’s ride this one out. What Is It? You’re Arthur Morgan, a gunslinging outlaw in a […]

SmashPad’s Most Anticipated Games of 2019

By now, you should be in the swing of things as far as 2019 goes.  No more accidentally writing 2018 on your forms and crossing out that eight, right?  No?  Well, time isn’t waiting for you. Quite a few games have already come out in 2019, and whether or not you’ve finished playing some of the best of 2018 yet, once we get through Kingdom Hearts III, the games will just keep on coming.

Patrick’s Top 10 Games of 2018

Patrick’s Top 10 Games of 2018

There’s something to be said for consistency. Going into 2018, I could have put together a list very much like this one predicting how my top picks of the year would pan out, with the only surprises being games that didn’t hit the radar until later. That’s not to say that 2018 was a disappointing year. As you will soon read, I consider it to be very much a banner year for the industry, just… maybe not in the same […]

Filippo’s Top 10 Games of 2018

Wow, where has the time gone? It doesn’t feel that long ago that we just rang in 2018, but here we are wrapping it up already. There have been a lot of great titles released this year, and I wanted to share my ten favourites with you all.

Josh’s Top 10 Games of 2018

Josh’s Top 10 Games of 2018

2018 was a year full of highly awaited sequels, anticipated new franchises and a surprising number of “battle royale” modes top publishers were trying to cash-in on due to Fortnite’s monstrous popularity. There have been let-downs, microtransaction debates and studios shutting down that have let franchises in limbo as well, but despite these topics of debate, 2018 saw one of the best years in gaming. All three consoles had stellar first party support and blockbuster multi-platform games such as Red […]

Alex’s Best of 2018

Alex’s Best of 2018

2018 was an interesting year for myself and gaming. To start the year, my apparently cheap self finally sprang for an external hard drive, ready to take on ALL THE GAMES… on just one console, because I didn’t buy two. But hey, I got the time!

Christian’s Top 10 Games of 2018

Christian’s Top 10 Games of 2018

As 2018 comes to a close, it’s a great time to reflect on what the year has brought us. With a few titles that were sure to shine, there were a few gems that seemed to have come out of nowhere. Although I wasn’t able to get to as many games as I had wished, this year still was a great year for gaming. On to my top 10!

“Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey” Review

“Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey” Review

The year off in 2016 for Assassin’s Creed was a much needed breath of fresh air as the series returned to reinvigorate the franchise into new and exciting directions. Origins was an instant success, breathing life into a stagnant series with new combat, exploration options and scenery. But unlike past yearly installments that tried to reinvent the wheel with each new iteration, Odyssey branches off of what Origins created and delivers one of the best entries into the long-running Assassin’s […]

“The Jackbox Party Pack 5” Review

“The Jackbox Party Pack 5” Review

Another year, another Jackbox Party Pack.  Since its initial release in 2013, the Jackbox Party Pack has been a delight especially when you reach that point in a party where it’s largely over, but the people still at the house are sobering up or are close to considering leaving after finishing the last of your spiked punch. The fifth Party Pack continues that tradition, and it’s definitely the most fun its been in a while, primarily because of two games. […]
