Saints Row

Actor and comedian Jay Mohr said on Twitter yesterday that he was contributing to a new Saints Row. Not that anyone was expecting Volition to stop making these games all of a sudden. "About to do my voice over work for new Sa...
The previously announced holiday add-on content for Saints Row IV, How the Saints Save Christmas, has been released along with this delightful trailer which explains the premise. Simply put, Santa Claus is apparently some ki...
Above all else, I dig the spot-on name for Saints Row IV's upcoming DLC. How the Saints Save Christmas promises to be "a holiday classic for the whole family" (riiight) when it arrives on December 11 for $6.99, or as a free d...
Big publisher sales are always a great way of filling any big gaps in your Steam library, especially if there's some franchise bundles. Deep Silver is having a weekend sale on lots of PC titles, including bundle deals for Dea...
We thought Saints Row: The Third expansion Enter the Dominatrix was some silly, horny internet thing. But it's real, and it's out today on the PSN, XBLA and Steam, priced at $6.99. If you've got a season pass, well, it'...
Enter the Dominatrix was originally going to be an expansion for Saints Row: The Third, but it's since been reworked as DLC for Saints Row IV. And, now, we have a release date: October 22, 2013. If you've got a season pass, i...
For all of the time we've spent talking about it, Destructoid readers should be familiar with Saints Row: The Third's "The Penetrator," aka that dildo baseball bat. I'd say it's back, but it never truly left. The infamous mel...
Some gamers are skipping Grand Theft Auto V, unwilling to play the role of a thief, a gangbanger, or a psychopath. While others may shy away from being the villain, Jim Sterling actively revels in it. Indeed, to play the villain can not only be fun, it can be downright fascinating.
Saints Row IV came, saw, and conquered critics alike as well as the charts, and now you can pick up a free bit of content if you're rolling with the Steam version. For today only on the PC, you can pick up the Gat V Pack for...
In its first week of being available at retail, Saints Row IV has sold more than one million copies. Sold, not shipped. According to publisher Deep Silver, the PC version of the game tripled the first-week sales of its predec...
Sure, the Saints Row: The Third dildo bat was cool. However, today is the day of the tentacle. Saints Row IV, in its self-one-upmanship, needed to raise the ante and thus the tentacle bat was born. What's more, a team of spe...
[Ed. note: Bumping our review from last week, as the game is available in stores today.] When I finished Saints Row: The Third in 2011, I left the experience feeling somewhat sad. It was a good game, but it felt shallow, held...
Saints Row IV is the wackiest game yet. Just when you thought hitting people with giant dildo bats was crazy, how about smacking aliens with giant dildo bats while running 100 miles per hour, leaping 100 feet in the air -- as...
Bloody hell, this week, calm down. A slew of games are clamouring for your attention over the next seven days, some of them really rather good. At the top of the pile, however, is Saints Row IV. I didn't think the series wou...
Not much longer now! Saints Row IV is almost out and it's a pretty amazing game. Seriously, check out our review. The wait can be painful, so here's a new trailer for the game giving us a behind-the-scenes look at some of th...
Why do gamers defend their favorite titles from criticism with such volatility? According to some, it's because they don't want to see their genitalia removed. Is inclusivity the enemy of creativity? Is restriction an inherent part of congeniality? The Jimquisition considers recent controversies against the fear of a game being "neutered" to "pander" to new audiences.
"We're definitely turning the tables on the aliens. For all the misery they've inflicted on the human race, being able to use the alien probe on them seems only just." -- Jim Boone, senior producer on Saints Row IV. Quote of the year, ladies and gentlemen. Quote of the year.
The best version of Saints Row IV will also be far and away the most expensive one. We're not talking a couple hundred dollars for some figurines. No, the Super Dangerous Wad Wad Edition will run a cool one million dolla...
It is with no small amount of delight that I bring you a new episode of Now Bloody Playing -- featuring an early look at the world of Saints Row IV. In this video, I walk you through all the teased "Romance Options" found in...
Volition's associate producer Kate Nelson spoke with Edge Online about all things Saints Row, and specifically brought up how the team weren't fans of THQ's marketing push using porn stars. “I did not always love how mu...
The Inauguration Station for Saints Row IV is out now on Steam and Xbox 360 with a PlayStation Network release set for Tuesday, August 13 (or tomorrow, if you're in the UK). This is the game's standalone character creator, w...
The crew over at Volition have put together the first entry of a Saints Row IV developer diary series, which should give you a pretty good look at what the game is all about (hint: superhero wackiness). A few of the particip...
After a ridiculous amount of faffing about, Saints Row IV has finally been deemed appropriate for adults to buy. Until now, Australian men and women were considered responsible enough to get jobs, buy homes, and get married, ...
Deep Silver is the latest publisher to get a Humble Bundle. For the next two weeks, you'll be able to save big on franchises like Dead Island and Saints Row. The pricing breakdown is slightly different this time, so here's wh...
I thought this all got fixed but apparently Australia's ratings board still has decided to refuse classification for Saints Row IV for the second time. A conveining of a Review Board found that the original ruling by the...
Hey guys! I'm back! And here's today's Destructoid Show, gettin' nasty and stupid with its bad self. Rayman Legends is hitting PC, which is great. The Oculus Rift is supported by a game about sexy maids, Saints Row IV has a ...
There sure have been some stupid collector's editions, but this one takes the cake -- and I mean that as the sincerest of compliments. It's Saints Row, after all. You kind of just have to roll with it. Deep Silver and Volitio...
Well, yeah -- of course Saints Row IV has a Season Pass. And, as expected, it'll include access to Enter the Dominatrix, which is now being described as "a tongue-in-cheek version of what this content was originally going to ...
Since my intrepid co-host is still off in Hawaii, undoubtedly contracting several deadly strains of bird flu, Adam Sessler stepped in on today's show again to talk about Steam's new exclusive daily challenges for Spelunky, t...
Previously slated as a standalone expansion for Saints Row: The Third, Enter the Dominatrix has since been incorporated into Saints Row IV, though "very little" of the content made the cut in the merge accordin...
Spoilers: Johnny Gat was killed in Saints Row: The Third. Well, you were lead to believe that since it all happened off screen. Anyway, he's back in Saints Row IV. Daniel Dae Kim is also back to voice the character as well. I loved that little Hawaii joke in the new trailer.
Are you going to San Diego Comic-Con this week? Well you better make time for the Saint's Row IV "Super Dangerous Wub Wub Panel" on Saturday at 6:30PM in room 7AB. Deep Silver's Aubrey Norris and Volition's Steve Jaros will b...
Here's today's Destructoid Show! Tara's back! Grand Theft Auto V finally shows off some gameplay, ZombiU is NOT getting a sequel, if a Saints Row sequel happens, it'll probably take a step in a different direction, Borderlands 2 is getting still more DLC, and World of Warcraft introduces microtransactions. Woo, video games.
Saints Row IV is ridiculous. That much has been made clear since day one, from the Saints taking the White House to aliens, superpowers, and Keith David starring as himself. It's the next logical extension after The Third, if...
The Third Street Saints are on the rise. Once a lowly street gang from Stillwater, the crime syndicate achieved celebrity status in conquering the burgeoning metropolis of Steelport. Now, you, their intrepid leader, have inex...
If you've ever wanted to hear Keith David say "anal probing overlords," you'll want to check out this new trailer for Saints Row IV, centered around independence day. You'll get a good look at combat, vehicular action, super...
Due to the fact that the Australian Classification Board decided that an Alien Anal Probe weapon was crossing the line due  "sexual violence with no justified context," (can alien technology ever really be justified, guy...
DICE is as excited about Star Wars: Battlefront as you are, Ellen Page is pissed about Ellie in The Last Of Us looking like her, Saints Row IV is too explicit for Australia, and Suda51 gives his stance on sexuality in Killer Is Dead. Adam Sessler fills in for Tara, and we talk about his fun panel with Jim Sterling, and how I'm a suicidal Pikachu.
[Update: Kotaku has obtained a report from the Classification Board which spells out the specifics of the decision -- an Alien Anal Probe weapon and "alien narcotics" -- and led to this fine sentence: "In the Board’s op...
Sony continues to turn up the heat this summer as it follows up a strong showing at E3 with yet another excellent week of PlayStation Plus. Saints Row: The Third headlines this week's free offerings, giving folks who mis...
