Danganronpa fans outside of Japan have patiently waited for the newest installment to make its way to the West for several months. Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony released all the way back in January in Japanese markets, and it wasn't until a few weeks ago on September 26th that we had our hands on an official English translation of the title.

The new title promised a few key features in its trailers: a separate story from the first trilogy, a female protagonist, and a story that centered on truth and lies rather than the usual hope and despair themes. This theming is very important in Danganronpa V3, and Spike Chunsoft expertly set this up in the very first chapter of the game.

I will warn you this article includes many spoilers for Chapter 1 of the game. I will not spoil anything past the end of this chapter, but I implore you to please play up to this point in Killing Harmony before you read this. If you've already played it, you should be fine. However, be wary of comments that may spoil other parts of the game as well.

2017 seems to be the year of Sonic the Hedgehog. Fans of the blue blur and his games have already gotten the critically acclaimed Sonic Mania, and Sonic Team's newest game—Sonic Forces—is going to release on November 7th.

With summer officially come and gone, many of us may still be dwelling on the warm, sunny days. Summer is when dreams start to spring to life, free from the shackles of work or school. If you're anything like me (and let's hope you aren't), one of your dreams is to be able to run around and have a squirt gun battle with busty anime girls. While that dream will never fully become a reality, it is as fulfilled as it'll possibly get thanks to developer Tamsoft and Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash.

Nier: Automata came out earlier this year and has become an overwhelming success, with the gaming receiving widespread critical acclaim and publisher Square Enix announcing a few days ago that it has shipped over 2 million units already.

After the end of Life is Strange, Dontnod Entertainment started working on a game that has a drastically different tone and gameplay style called Vampyr. This game will take players back to the 1918 Spanish flu epidemic where Doctor Jonathan Reid has been turned into a vampire, and they will take control of Reid to prey on the people of London as he comes to terms with his new, undead form. Originally, we were supposed to get our hands on this game in just a couple of months. However, Dontnod has unfortunately pushed this gritty RPG back to a Spring 2018 release date.

Monster Hunter fans were in for a treat during E3, when Capcom revealed the next entry in the franchise, Monster Hunter: World, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. During their Tokyo Game Show pre-show conference last night, Sony finally provided us with a solid release date for this new title; when they said the game would launch in "early 2018" at E3, they were not joking, as we won't even be a month into the new year before we can play this HD adventure, at least on consoles.

It's no secret by now that Shadow the Hedgehog will appear in Sonic Forces. The Ultimate Life Form stars as one of Eggman's enforcers in his latest bid for global conquest, but this development has since left fans wondering why the reformed hedgehog is back on the side of evil, putting him at odds with Modern Sonic and the Resistance.

Today, SEGA has revealed a new prequel DLC for the upcoming title, focusing on the backstory between Shadow and new baddie Infinite and setting the stage for the events of Forces. The appropriately titled Episode Shadow add-on will also feature the grand return of Shadow himself as a playable character, for the first time in eleven years!

In a recent interview with GameSpot, Hajime Tabata, the director of Final Fantasy XV, spoke at length about his plans for his next project in the Final Fantasy series. Although he's not sure if he wants his next game to feature an open world, Tabata has said that he wants to at least imitate the feeling of an open world game, as he wanted players to get the "overall experience" of playing in a massive world. This "overall experience" would be heavily inspired by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which Tabata calls a "very polished" and "almost a perfect game."

When Dontnod Entertainment released Life is Strange in 2015, it had a surefire hit on its hands. By combining the choose-your-own adventure style made popular by Telltale Games and a dark, compelling story, Life is Strange still holds the top spot on my list of games that made me cry. Though Dontnod is currently at work on a sequel, developer Deck Nine is working on taking the franchise to the past with Life is Strange: Before the Storm.
