Anno Domini 2013: The Year of God in Video Games

If 2012 was the year of self-loathing, then 2013 is the year that humanity collectively waged war against God. No, this isn’t a “war on Christmas”, quasi-conservative argument about video games turning our children atheist or some bullshit like that. I’m saying that the general thematic element of some of our biggest titles this year featured a metaphorical battle between humanity and various representations of godlike forces, or in some cases God himself. Take for instance BioShock Infinite. Probably the [...]

Twinfinite Staff’s Top 5 Games of the Year List – Mike

Well it’s that time of year when the staff at Twinfinite each gets the chance to reveal which five games most moved us this year, and I just couldn’t resist writing something about each of my favorites. My 2013 in gaming has been very educational, as I came to terms with series’ that I had fallen in and out of love with, series’ I’d never really loved in the first place, and even one that swept me off my feet [...]

 

“Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin?” DLC Pack Has Come To Saints Row IV

Anthony and Ashley Burch are funny people. Anthony was one of the lead writers of Borderlands 2, and Ashley runs the fucking hysterical webseries “Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin’?” on Youtube. They have credentials. Credentials that have now gotten themselves their own DLC pack in Volition’s hit action game Saints Row IV. The DLC makes Ashley, Anthony, and “Papa Burch” homies you can acquire in the alien controlled hell-scape of awesome that is Steelport. Speaking on their website, Anthony Burch describes [...]

Get in the Spirit with Saints Row IV Christmas DLC

It’s not even Thanksgiving, yet holiday cheer is nigh-unavoidable. They’re already playing Christmas carols in stores and on the radio, and more than a few of my neighbors have bedecked their halls (read: front yards) with blinking lights and inflatable snowmen. Even video game studios are getting in on the action (read: profit). On December 11,  fans of Saints Row IV can get festive with DLC entitled “How the Saints Saved Christmas.” How did the Saints save Christmas? I’m guessing [...]

Saints Row IV ‘Thank You Pack’ Free Today

Less than a week after the Pirate’s Booty Pack DLC was released, Volition and Deep Silver have thrown in a little bit extra as a gesture of goodwill towards fans AND THAT’S ALL. Today, they’ve released the Thank You Pack. Here’s what they had to say about it: As a thank you for your support of Saints Row IV, please accept this free outfit pack which should be construed [...]

Saints Row IV DLC Has a Release Date – Get Freaky On Your Dildozer

You might remember the upcoming DLC for Saints Row IV titled Enter the Dominatrix as it was originally planned as DLC for Saints Row: The Third. The add-on now has a release date of October 22 and will cost $6.99 on its own, or free for season pass holders. In this alternate take on the Zin invasion storyline, Zinyak and the legions of his alien empire trap the Saints in a virtual world run by a mad AI program known as the Dominatrix. In order [...]

 

Assassin’s Creed Jumped the Shark, Mega Pokemon, and more! – Gaming Happens

Gaming Happens and I’m around to see it. This week, I discuss Payday 2′s missed opportunities, the Oculus Rift, Pokemon X and Y news, Arkham Origins, million dollar collector’s editions, and when creators are just milking series to the bone. I also asked you to let me know about a series you think jumped the shark. The one most recently in my mind is Assassin’s Creed, of course. But you knew that, because you watched the episode.

If I had a Million Dollars: the Super Dangerous Wad Wad Edition of Saints Row IV

As if the upcoming Saints Row IV wasn’t ridiculous enough, it was announced on Thursday that one lucky fan, for the cost of $1,000,000, can pre-order the ‘Super Dangerous Wad Wad’ Edition of the game. You read that right: one million dollars. The so-called ‘Million Dollar Pack’ is now available for pre-order exclusively at UK’s GAME. Possibly the most absurd marketing stunt in the games industry to date, publisher Deep Silver has put together a pretty badass Presidential package. So [...]

Saints Row IV – Hands-on Preview

To save any embarrassment, later on I’ll tell you straight off the bat; I have never played a Saints Row game before. In fact, I barely knew what it was, other than a GTA with pimp outfits and a weaponized sex toy that one-upped San Andreas’. Sounds… original, but not quite enough to sway me into a purchase. However, at a first-look event a few months ago, I was shown a glimpse of Steelport and told three things: aliens have [...]
