[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.

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

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.

“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 […]

“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.
