During E3 last month I got the chance to watch an extensive demo of Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion, followed by a short hands-on segment. I had a ton of fun with the Wind Waker-inspired cartoon adventure and named it a runner-up for Gamnesia's Best of E3 2018 Awards. The high seas adventure launched today, but if you're not quite sold yet you can check out 90 minutes of Jake, Finn, and friends in action before making up your mind.

Blast from the past Sonic Mania was a nostalgic thrill ride that was well worth the wait for Sonic fans, and many are looking forward to double-dipping into Sonic Mania Plus with its worldwide launch tomorrow. To commemorate, much like they had done with the original Collector's Edition last year, SEGA put together a familiar tongue-in-cheek advert that those who grew up in the 90's "Console Wars" will surely recognize.

If you've played your fair share of shooters and action games, you've probably thought about how ridiculous gun mechanics are. In games like Borderlands and Destiny, you can shoot an enemy thousands of times before they feel the damage. In Call of Duty, the swing of a knife does more damage than a couple of shots to the chest. While it may seem like there are only a handful of games that follow a realistic understanding of how firearms work (the recent Wolfenstein games being a key example), the Uncharted series has taken a different path this whole time, and we were all clueless to its cleverness.

One of the hottest games in the world is getting ready for its next step.

Sonic Mania returned SEGA's best-known franchise to its roots, and it quickly established itself as one of the highest-rated Sonic games of all time. SEGA decided to capitalize on this success with Sonic Mania Plus, an updated version of the game packed with new content. One of the new additions is an extra bonus stage based around pinball, which is a re-occurring theme in Sonic.

Have you ever thought that there are just too many darn ports of Skyrim? I know I have, and I bet Bethesda has too. Heck, they made a whole trailer making fun of how many times they've released the game. But they immediately went on to make that joke trailer a reality. So are we finally done seeing Skyrim ports every year? Is Bethesda finally going to stop cashing in on their most popular title? It's hard to say for sure. But if you want the company to stop, you may not want to buy any more copies.

Back in May, Blizzard introduced a new charity skin for Mercy in Overwatch. This special Pink Mercy skin came at a hefty price ($15 for the single cosmetic item), but for a good reason. Blizzard donated all of the money generated from the limited time skin to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Now that the event is all wrapped up, Blizzard has released a video to thank fans for contributing to this wonderful cause.

At E3 last month the public was treated to a brand new trailer for Anthem, the next big thing from Mass Effect creators BioWare. Those lucky enough to be on the E3 show floor itself had an opportunity to go hands-on with a 20 minute demo of the game. For those who were only watching back at home, BioWare has now opted to upload that gameplay footage, complete with developer commentary, to YouTube.

My Hero Academia is one of the most popular anime series in the world right now, and soon it's going to be crossing over into video games as Bandai Namco's My Hero: One's Justice. I got the chance to go hands-on with the 3D fighter at E3 last month, and it earned a Best of E3 nomination and was our runner-up for best fighting game at E3. If you're looking forward to it as much as I am, you'll be happy to know the game's latest trailer revealed an official release date.

Sony's PR department has been having a rough month. After Fortnite was launched on Switch, players who had already logged on via their PlayStation 4 were locked out. This led to an avalanche of problems where Sony's anti-cross-play policies became apparent. Now, Todd Howard has revealed that, even after this revelation, Sony will not allow cross-play for Fallout 76.

The online gaming community is closer than ever, with most of the major platforms taking steps to allow for cross-play between gamers regardless of their hardware preferences. However, not everyone is feeling the love. Sony has refused to allow for cross-play with other consoles, and they even blocked Fortnite accounts from transferring save data if they've been used on a PlayStation 4. It's an unfortunate situation, but recent comments from a Sony executive give us at least some cause for optimism.

When it does, players will have a large and diverse roster of playable heroes and villains to choose from. Bandai Namco has just unveiled two more fighters for One's Justice, including an old veteran hero and a violent villain.

Blizzard recently starting teasing a new reveal for Overwatch with the tagline "calm before the storm." Many speculated that we'd be seeing a new level, but as it turns out, we're getting a new playable character. Hero number 28 has just officially been revealed, and it's a pretty big departure from the heroes we've seen so far.
