SRIV: Gat out of Hell photo
Like a sinner before the gates of Heaven

Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell leaves no deadly sin unchecked


Needs more sloth, to be honest
Oct 15
Johnny Gat's not a good man. Powerful, but not good. That's why he uses each and every of the seven deadly sins to send all of those already dead to the after-afterlife. Most of them look like they deserve it, to be fair. Especially those nipple-rubbing demons. read

Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell takes us on a fly-by tour of the underworld


And re-murders the post-alive
Sep 24
Sprout some wings and take an aerial tour of Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell and New Hades with Johnny Gat acting as a murderous guide. When he's not perusing the underworld via an overhead view, he's running down demons in his rambulance or firing swaths of rockets from his armchair. Our promised musical number hasn't shown up yet, but so far, everything is so wonderfully Saints Row. read

There's a full musical number and everything
I've played and enjoyed all of the Saints Row games to date, but wonder how much longer this can last. How much more ridiculous can the series get, and even if there is room to up the insanity, do we even want that? Where Vol... read feature

Jimquisition happens every Monday!
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. read feature
