Make These Now – Five Movies That Would Make Incredible Video Games

It’s a well-known fact amongst just about everyone who is involved with video games in some capacity, that adapting pre-existing intellectual properties is a dicey venture. While there are some truly excellent examples of video games that not just replicate but elevate its source material, the vast majority of them are pretty awful. What’s really sad about it is that they don’t have to be; more often than not, the reason why these video games turn out poorly is due [...]

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.

Saints Row IV Review – This Is How We Do It

What’s in a game? Wonder, imagination, and a whole new world. That’s right, Aladdin was talking about showing Jasmine his gaming collection. Ultimately what we find in video games are worlds where we can be something that we’re not. Now imagine that a game takes that very concept and makes a meta world where someone that you’re not is someone that they’re not. Am I getting too deep for a review of Saints Row IV? Whatever, it’s great. I find [...]

Cancelled Saints Row: The Third DLC Confirmed For Saints Row 4

Back on April Fools of last year, THQ announced that DLC titled Enter the Dominatrix would be released for Saints Row: The Third. Later that year, it was announced that since the DLC was so impressive and sizable, that it would be delayed so that it could be incorporated into the Saints Row 4. Over the weekend, during  a Saints Row panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Steve Jaros, studio head at Deep Silver Volition, confirmed that the Enter the Dominatrix [...]

Why Can’t Saints Row IV Wiggle Past Australian Classification?

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before; the Australian government REALLY doesn’t like video games. The world’s smallest continent has a long-standing adversarial relationship with the video game industry by refusing to classify adult-themed titles, and it looks like the latest chapter is being written as we speak. It was believed at the beginning of this year that this kind of problem would be a thing of the past, as Australia introduced a rating of ‘R18+’ for games they [...]

E3 – Saints Row IV: Hands-On Preview

There’s nothing quite like an appointment with the president. We had the chance to visit Deep Silver’s booth at E3, get some hands-on time with the upcoming Saints Row IV, and even have a quick interview with one of the developers. All in all, it was a really nice time. Enough about that however; you all want to know about the game. The demo we got to try out was basically the opening mission of Saints Row IV. It picks [...]

 

E3 – Saints Row IV Interview with Volition

It’s not exactly a stretch to describe the Saints Row series as ‘bonkers.’ What is truly impressive about this series is how its creators are incredibly down to earth and friendly people. We spoke with Scott Phillips from Volition and asked him some questions about his team’s creative process in making Saints Row IV, stuff that didn’t make the final cut, and maybe a preview of what Saints Row V has in store. Check out the video for more.

 

Saints Row IV Turns Political Power Into Super Power in New Trailer

As far as over the top games are considered, the Saints Row series continues to not only set the bar, but break it over the closest living things head in spectacular style. The franchise can basically do what ever it wants and this trailer titled Meet the President delivers this message quite clearly. The gameplay looks like that of Crackdown infused with a WWE flavor and, of course, Saints Row’s patented humor. It seems to be coming along nicely and is set for [...]

[PAX] Preview: Saints Row IV – Obama with a Dubstep Gun

Saints Row is built on crazy, over the top, high octane goodness. With Saints Row: The Third the over-the-top aspect of this sandbox game was brought to full throttle, and one of the worries I personally had was wondering how they would outdo themselves. Well, let’s just say they figured it out with Saints Row IV.
