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. Mad Max sees players take on the role of the legendary Max Rockatansky, surviving in the post-apocalyptic Wasteland as he seeks to build the ultimate vehicle of mayhem and destruction called "The Magnum Opus." 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.

It's not that often that the UK's Video Standards Council refuses a game a rating, effectively banning it in the country. In fact, prior to this week it hadn't happened since Manhunt 2 was refused classification back in 2007, over a decade ago. That streak was just broken by Omega Labyrinth Z, an RPG that features school girls in a variety of sexually explicit scenarios.

The popular Attack on Titan anime series received a video game adaptation courtesy of Koei Tecmo's Omega Force back in 2016.

Attack on Titan 2 launches this month, and the early reviews have started to roll in from Japan, including an impressive score from Famitsu.

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. Now, almost four and a half years after the premiere of the PlayStation 4, Sony has decided to take another step in this direction by making a major change to its PlayStation Plus program starting next year.

After the numerous spinoff titles that were spawned from Persona 4, many fans were expecting the same treatment for Persona 5. These expectations became reality when Atlus announced Persona Q2, which will use the cast of Persona 5, and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night, a rhythm game similar to 2015's Dancing All Night. On top of this, the company surprisingly announced Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night, which will coincide with the release of Dancing Star Night.

Both dancing titles are set to release in Japan on May 24th, so promotion for the games is ramping up. A batch of brand new screenshots and a tracklist for both games has been revealed. Head inside to check them out!

While I didn't play all the major games that released in 2017, I did get to finish every single one that I had been anticipating since announcement. Gigantic franchises such as Persona, The Legend of Zelda, and Resident Evil received new installments this year. However, a smaller title told a story of sixteen high school students and a demonic teddy bear in 2017, and it was the most captivating experience I've had with video games all year.

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.

Fans of 2D exploration games are in for a treat these next few weeks.

However, the physical edition of the game has now been pushed back to a November release with no specific date.

Invading dragons have razed the Earth, human civilization has collapsed, and survivors have taken to living out the remainder of their days in capsules in outer space. This is the bleak scenario painted by Cleaversoft for their upcoming, procedurally-generated runner game EarthNight, where you take on the role of either 14-year-old high schooler Sydney or freelance photographer Stanley to scavenge for resources, collect power-ups, and slay dragons.

Nintendo hosted a Nindie showcase earlier this afternoon, and one of the coolest things shown off was the first gameplay footage of Shovel Knight's final DLC campaign.
