Saints Row IV wins with Game of the Generation Edition

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 ...

Johnny Gat is back in Saints Row IV

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.

GTA Gameplay, Saints Row's Future & No More ZombiU

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.

Future Saints Row titles would likely go in new direction

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...

Saints Row IV: Everything you've ever loved in a blender photo
Saints Row IV: Everything you've ever loved in a blender
by Kyle MacGregor

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 inexplicably captured the presidency. Everything is gravy. Well, except for that twenty percent approval rating. Also, there's an armada of aliens bearing down on the capital and snatching people up like it's War of the Worlds or something. Maybe it's time to kick some extraterrestrial ass. Because 'Merica.

Saints Row IV is still as juvenile, irreverent, and hilarious as ever. And it feels pretty amazing too. Over the past few days I've had some time to go hands-on with a preview build of the game featuring what's ostensibly the game's opening hours and thus far I'm having an absolute blast.

Star Wars: Battlefront, Ellen Page, & Sexy Suda51

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.

Saints Row IV: Now with more floppy cocks

So here's a funny little story. When Volition first showed off Saints Row: The Third, the male and female private parts were way more animated. Black censor bars covered the naughty stuff -- actually, it was pixelated censors...

Saints Row IV is going to be the best superhero game ever photo
Saints Row IV is going to be the best superhero game ever
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

I was a little worried about Saints Row IV when it was revealed at PAX East. My main concern being how much fun would it really be revisiting Steelport even with superpowers and such. After some hands-on time though, I really can't wait to dive into the stupid world of Saints Row all over again.

Yeah the environment is largely the same, but personally that's something I'm okay with as that's given Volition the chance to focus way more on upping the gameplay, adding a ton more mini-games, and creating a story as absurd and funny as you fighting off an alien invasion as the President of the United States.
