Square Enix's hotly-anticipated third entry in the beloved franchise hits store shelves on January 29, 2019. Time will tell if the game is worth the wait, but if a recent report is true, it's definitely delivering a massive amount of content.

Overcooked is a delightfully frantic multiplayer cooking game that launched to a strong critical reception back in 2016. The game's sales were boosted substantially by a Nintendo Switch port the next year, and developer Ghost Town Games recently revealed that a sequel is on the way. Overcooked 2 will kick the action up a notch when it launches early next month, and in the meantime, Nintendo World Report has uploaded footage of the first five levels.

At Bethesda's E3 conference last month, they announced that a sequel for 2016's Doom titled Doom Eternal was under development. However, we didn't get much information from the game aside from a title, a brief teaser, and a promise of a gameplay reveal at QuakeCon in August. Recently, Bethesda released their schedule of events for QuakeCon, including information about the event's keynote address.

Sonic Mania marked a return to the franchise's gameplay roots, and it was a critically-acclaimed smash hit as a result. As a follow-up, SEGA gave the game a physical release with extra content (available as a download to those who already own Mania) under the title Sonic Mania Plus. In the week since Plus launched, fans have uncovered all kinds of fun, new additions, and recently several cheat codes were discovered.

Late last month Blizzard unveiled the newest Overwatch hero: a hamster in a mech suit. This furry little guy is quite the disruptive addition to the roster with his wrecking ball mechanics, so Blizzard has spent nearly a month testing him out on the PTR server. Today it seems they're finally satisfied with his balancing, as they've officially released him into the main game.

San Diego Comic-Con is in full swing—pun intended—and Insomniac Games dropped some new trailers for Spider-Man at the Marvel Games panel. A new story trailer reveals that New York City is turning upside-down, and Mayor Norman Osborn is pointing the blame squarely on Spider-Man. As such, Osborn hires an unlikely ally: Silver Sable. Additionally, Insomniac dropped a final trailer detailing the game's pre-order bonus.

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.
