SmashPad got its start as a commentary supplement to Gamer 2.0 (formerly Inside Gamer Online, which got bought over by an eSports publication brand called Amped News) founded by Amadeo Plaza and Anthony Perez. Plaza and Perez recruited and built the staff under different brands, including Gaming-Nation, Inside Gamer Online, Amped IGO, Amped News, Gamer 2.0, and now SmashPad. After struggling to get back on its feet as Gamer 2.0 continued to lose funding, the SmashPad blog eventually became the main outlet for the site’s editorial staff. Now headed by senior staff Chris Selogy, Danreb Victorio, and Filippo Dinolfo, SmashPad has slowly but surely started to regain attention as a legitimate source in independent gaming journalism.
