RuneScape was one hell of a game back in the day. Not only does it hold the Guinness World Record as the most popular massively multiplayer online role-playing game of all time, but its expansiveness is almost unheard of. Unfortunately, the game was forgotten in time after a bout of updates that, to most, ruined the game. Luckily, the team at Jagex gave us a revival in 2013 with the release of Old School RuneScape, a complete backup of the game's beloved circa-2007 servers. Now that version of the game is receiving a mobile port on both iOS and Android, complete with cross-platform play with PC users. And boy oh boy, does it ever work smoothly!

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.

Join Ben, Jeff, and newcomer Mark as we talk about Nintendo Switch Online, Pokémon, and more. We also give our impressions of the newly-launched Super Mario Party. For this week's discussion section, we discuss three Nintendo franchises that need a reboot and explore what that might look like. Hit the jump to take it all in!

It's been 8 years since Mega Man fans have received a game in the franchise's mainline series. Since Capcom's reveal of Mega Man 11 late last year, many of the Blue Bomber's fans have been anxiously awaiting launch day, and thankfully, the wait is over. Capcom is trying to kick things into overdrive by introducing a brand-new mechanic to the game, but the biggest question still remains. Does Mega Man 11 have what it takes to make up for the long drought?

While The Settlers—as a series of strategy games that originated in the '90s—never reached the critical acclamation of Warcraft or Heroes of Might and Magic, it remains dear to many gamers. At this year's Gamescom, the story about starting your own medieval colony and fighting other settlers returned, as Ubisoft announced not one but two games: The History Collection, which includes the first seven Settlers games, and a brand new game that reboots the franchise. Gamnesia recently had a chance to talk to Volker Wertich, the man behind the series and Creative Director for the upcoming reboot, about the past and future of Settlers.

In a world of countless RPGs, you might be worried that the genre is becoming stale over time. Unfortunately, many developers are too afraid to shake up the formula out of fear their games may not sell well. So while the big names play it safe, we turn to independent developers for innovation. Enter Quincy Pringle, a young developer who is ready to liven up the RPG scene with his new game OTHER: Her Loving Embrace. The game takes traditional turn-based battles and turns each one into an interactive experience.

I had a chance to talk to Quincy about his upcoming game, and he had a lot to share, including details about the game's story, characters, additional gameplay mechanics, and much more. Quincy went into detail about his passion for game development, some of his greatest inspirations, and even some hardships he's faced when working on projects in the past.

Resident Evil 2 captivated and terrified PlayStation owners when it debuted in 1998, and 20 years later, Capcom is preparing to bring the survival-horror masterpiece to a new generation. The Resident Evil 2 Remake will feature modern graphics (built in the RE Engine) and controls, modernizing it for new players. Capcom has also teased that more remakes are on the way, but which game should they tackle next?

2018 has been a fantastic year for video games, and its early months have been filled with critically acclaimed hits like Monster Hunter: World, Dragon Ball FighterZ, and God of War. We typically see less AAA titles released during the Summer months, but that doesn't mean there's a video game drought. Between remakes, remasters, enhanced ports, and indie games, there's been a non-stop flow of quality games. Which games have you been enjoying this Summer?

As video games become increasingly more popular we're seeing a rise in game-related video content in recent years. Video games movies have been a mixed bag in recent years, and now there's a push for more game-based TV shows, including Street Fighter, The Witcher, Halo, and Resident Evil. There's even talk of potential for a God of War show. With so many projects to choose from, which one has you most excited?

Another exciting E3 has come and gone, and four members of the Gamnesia staff had the opportunity to head to Los Angeles for the convention. Over the course of the week we got to go hands-on with many of the fantastic games shown off during the press conferences, and we nominated some of our favorites for the Best of E3 award. We couldn't choose just one winner, so we narrowed it down to three total winners, each with their own category. You can check out our full list of nominees and winners by clicking below!

As one of the world's largest gaming conventions, E3 is home to mega-hits from well-known franchises like Super Smash Bros., Resident Evil, and Kingdom Hearts. While these games have certainly earned their place in the spotlight, one of the greatest joys of E3 is discovering hidden gems that aren't already household names.

If you know where to look, E3 is also home to passion projects from small, independent teams hoping to share their digital babies with the world. One of the best at this year's show was 3 Minutes to Midnight, a point-and click-adventure from the up and coming Scarecrow Studios. Located on a laptop at a small booth at the edge of South Hall, 3 Minutes to Midnight had a minor presence on the floor, but it left a major impact. Head inside for my impressions!

There's no series that throws the collective Nintendo community into an absolute frenzy quite like Super Smash Bros. The question of "which new characters will join the roster?" has been on everyone's minds since we learned of the new game for the Switch, and we took a dive into our most anticipated characters with Part 1 not long ago. Capping off with K. Rool and Inklings last time, we move on to the final five of our top ten list! Hit the jump for the rest.

There's no series that throws the collective Nintendo community into an absolute frenzy quite like Super Smash Bros. The March Direct capped with the tease of a brand new entry in the highly coveted crossover fighter franchise, and fake leaks, rumors, and speculations have pretty much taken over the internet at this point. Naturally, there is one big question on everyone's minds with answers that pretty much define a new Smash entry: which new characters will join the roster? Hit the jump for our take!

Video game Christmas is upon us! In just over a week, we will see dozens of game developers, from tiny indie teams to massive AAA publishers, gathering in Los Angeles to strut their stuff. During E3 we'll get a sneak peak at many of the most exciting titles releasing in 2018 and beyond. If you're having trouble keeping up with all of the video presentations that have been announced for next week, we've got you covered.

E3 is less than two weeks away, but The Pokémon Company couldn't quite wait that long to spill the beans on their plans for the future. They held a special media presentation last night (watch it in full right here) and unveiled multiple new games. The big announcement that has everyone talking is Pokémon: Let's Go (available in Pikachu! and Eevee! versions), a game that returns to Kanto and infuses the classic Pokémon formula with elements from Pokémon GO. Fans have reacted with a wide range of emotions that stretches from ecstatic joy to frustration and hate. Whether or not you think the Let's Go games are for you, they represent an absolutely brilliant move by Game Freak, and they're sure to boost the series for years to come.
