PlayStation 3 launched with "Other OS," a feature that allowed you to install Linux on the console and use it like a PC.

With another month comes another collection of free games for PlayStation Plus subscribers, and April's big ticket items on PlayStation 4 might appeal to those seeking high octane thrills.

The game, released in 2015 following the critically acclaimed Fury Road film, features extensive vehicular combat and customization.

Off a similar tangent comes the other free game in the form of Trackmania Turbo, where you can race for the best time off impossibly designed tracks or build your own! See the two in action in the video after the jump.

Way back in 2013, Lindsay Lohan announced her intention to sue Rockstar Games and publisher Take-Two Interactive over what she believed to be an unlicensed use of her likeness.

It's been a year and a half since then, and Lohan continues to fight.

The Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing series served as enjoyable racing games that would distract you long enough if you ever got sick of playing Mario Kart. Unfortunately, that's all they can be: a distraction. When you're looking for a great party game to play with your friends, the All-Star Racing games are rarely likely to be brought up. They suffer from slippery controls, questionable game mechanics, and a poor online structure.

Fortunately, SEGA has a chance to make up for all this, as they recently announced a brand new Sonic racing game. The company has confirmed it won't be a sequel to any games they've released, so this is their chance to start over from scratch. But for SEGA to even dream of competing with the big dogs like Mario Kart, there are a few things they'll need to work on.

Way back when PlayStation 3 made its debut in 2006, one of the perks of the console was the fact that you could install Linux on it, effectively allowing it to double as a PC. Sony issued a firmware update to remove this feature four years later, citing security risks as the reason. This led to a class-action lawsuit, with early buyers accusing Sony of false advertising. Thanks to a recent settlement, they'll soon be getting their payout.

One of the downsides to the launch of a new console generation is that support for older consoles begins to get phased out. This process may ultimately take a while to fully play out, but it will inevitably happen.

Back in 2014, Ubisoft decided to release two brand new Assassin's Creed games on the same day. Assassin's Creed Unity was released on the brand new Xbox One and PlayStation 4 systems and was widely received as a colossal failure. This overshadowed the release of the other game, Assassin's Creed Rogue, which featured the popular pirate gameplay from Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and released on the older Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles.

If you missed Rogue because it had to live in the shadow of Unity, you're in luck. Ubisoft is remastering the game for PS4 and Xbox One, even though it's only been a little over three years since the original game launched. Head inside for more!
