Playing video games is a wonderful pastime, but it's also an expensive one. Most AAA titles come with a $60 price tag, and that doesn't even include the inevitable DLC and possible microtransactions. Fortunately, publishers occasionally make the effort to get some of their best titles into the hands of gamers on a budget. Nintendo has been doing this for years with their Nintendo Selects program, and now Sony is following suit.

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!

E3 has just wrapped up in Los Angeles, and several Gamnesia staff members got the opportunity to peruse the show floor over the past week, trying out upcoming games from numerous developers big and small. We're all pretty exhausted and glad to be back in the comfort of our own homes, but we also had a great time and played a lot of exciting games.

Before ending our trip, we all met up in the hotel one last time to record our impressions from three days on the show floor, including our thoughts from our extensive hands-on time with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate at Nintendo's press appointment area. In addition to the excitement of Smash, we share our thoughts on Marvel's Spider-Man, Mega Man 11, Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu and Eevee, and lots more!

My Hero Academia's anime adaptation reached new heights of excitement with yesterday's episode, and there's still so much more yet to come.

Having DLC become available for games post-launch has become a common sight in the industry in recent years, but the Kingdom Hearts franchise has yet to embrace such practices. That may be changing for Kingdom Hearts III, as a new interview from IGN with series creator and director Tetsuya Nomura has revealed that he would like to include post-launch content in the game. At the moment, he doesn't know what that content might be, though he does have some ideas.

Last year's E3 gave us a trailer that would stun audiences, with a story that will dive into the depths of HP Lovecraft's beloved story The Call of C'thuhlu. Staying true to the investigative spirit of the story, the title brings us face-to-face with the cosmic beings outside our human understanding and plunges us into the mystical horrors of the Lovecraftian universe. A new trailer released on YouTube provides a surprising treat for Lovecraft fans of this day and age, while also giving us a look at the powers that be.
