It's officially a brand new year! 2019 is sure to be another great year with exciting titles like the Resident Evil 2 remake, Kingdom Hearts III, a new Animal Crossing, and so much more. Before we charge ahead into the new year, let's take one last moment to look back on 2018 and appreciate the games that challenged us and brought us joy and excitement. What was your favorite game of 2018? Head inside and share your picks in the comments!

Happy New Year, Gamnesia family. 2019 is finally here, and with it will come many new games that we've been eagerly waiting for. But with all these new games, we might get distracted from our old library. Surely we should make time for old games and not just play the newest blockbuster titles. We've collected many, many games over the years, and I say that part of our New Year's Resolution should be to finish up some of our backlogs.

You may not know this, but I'm a busy man. In fact, I'm so busy, I've been inexplicably absent from Gamnesia for over a month. So I don't really play games 100% to completion anymore, especially when it comes to Pokémon.

I've been burnt out on this series for quite some time, mostly due to how slow and tedious the games are. As a young adult that finds himself working most of the time, I needed a Pokémon game that's easier to digest. Thankfully, I think Let's Go has given me exactly what I asked for.

As the year draws to a close, friends and families are gathering together in celebration in many parts of the world, and many lucky children woke up to video games under the tree yesterday. I personally enjoyed a nice evening of battling my brother in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and it got me thinking about gaming memories from Christmases in past years. What's the best game you ever received for Christmas?

This is a giveaway, folks -- no fancy work required! Take a beta key for multiplayer game Aftercharge.

Hey, you! Yeah, you. I've got a bunch of keys for a closed beta with your name all over them! Well, your name is just on one of them. There are lots of names this time of year, as I'm sure you can imagine. But don't worry, you're on the Nice list. But only if you take one of these beta keys for Aftercharge.

Game Freak's phenomenally popular Pokémon franchise has followed the same basic formula for 20 years, and with great success. However, the most recent titles, Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee, introduced some major changes. Many of these changes were intended to make Let's Go more similar to Niantic's mobile hit Pokémon GO, while others were tweaks or new ideas intended to make the games more user-friendly. Naturally, many fans are divided on whether or not they like this new style. I've personally criticized a few elements, but there are other areas where Let's Go is absolutely crushing it. Click below for the five best changes!

RWBY Volume 6 has gotten off to an impressive start filled with action, confrontation, and most recently, a ton of lore. Episode 3 saw Ruby and friends finally learning the truth about Ozpin, Salem, and the gods. But questions about Remnant's past are like the heads of a hydra. Cutting one down just leads to two more growing in its place. To those who like to theorize about the future of the show, that's all the more reason to be excited. If you're caught up on the show (or just don't care about spoilers), click the jump to dive headlong into a theory about the true origins of humankind, as well as the Faunus. 

Game Freak just released Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee into the wild, and millions around the world are touring Kanto and capturing monsters left and right. Series producer Junichi Masuda has previously indicated that if the games are successful, they could become a continuing series, existing alongside the more "core" entries in the franchise. Now that you've had time to go hands-on or at least watch footage, do you think Game Freak should keep making Let's Go games?

Over 20 years after the series made its debut, Pokémon is finally getting its first official live-action movie, but it's not following the formula of the main series games. Instead, Hollywood turned to a little-known Nintendo 3DS spin-off game called Detective Pikachu. We've known that a film adaptation has been in the works for quite some time, but yesterday we finally got our first look at the movie, including Ryan Reynolds as a talking, crime-solving Pikachu. Was it everything you were hoping for, nightmare fuel, or something else entirely?

As 2018 draws nearer and nearer to its end, numerous outlets will be handing out awards. The Game Awards, hosted for the fifth year by creator Geoff Keighley, will certainly be a popular awards show with millions of eyes tuning in to see not just accolades, but also teasers and reveals for upcoming games. With Keighley teasing that this year will feature more announcements than ever before, what do you hope to see?

Back in 2012, Rooster Teeth unveiled the Red Trailer, giving the world their first ever look at a new anime-styled web series called RWBY. The show's unique 3D style, diverse characters, and outstanding soundtrack helped it rise from humble beginnings (remember the "shadow people" caused by Volume 1's low budget?) to become an international success, and it never stopped changing and growing along the way. 

That's never been more true than in recent years, as the tragic death of RWBY creator Monty Oum during Volume 3's production has forced the remaining writing and animating staff to carry out Oum's vision without his guiding hand. Soon after this, the team switched over to Maya for animation, giving it a whole new look to go with the new feel. Understandably, the show has experienced highs and lows during this transition, but those Monty left behind have stayed true to his life's mantra: Keep moving forward. With the debut of RWBY Volume 6 just days away, it's time to look back on how the show has fared with the changes brought by recent volumes, and how it can continue to grow and improve heading into the future.

Nintendo Switch Online officially launched last week to some mixed reception. The company's first subscription model for online play is missing a lot of key features that draws gamers to other services like PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Gold, causing some people to call it a ripoff. However, the service is incredibly cheap for what it does offer, and a select group of Nintendo fans is appreciative of the benefits that are being offered.

What are your thoughts on the service so far? Head inside to let us know!
