Lots of games are morally bankrupt, we get it

With Hotline Miami 2 recently released, I realized I am really, really tired of games that belong in its genre. When I say "genre," I refer not to "action games" or "indie games" or even "violent games," but a subtler, more h...

Saints Row IV: Re-Elected is a prettier mash-up of aliens and sex toys

Saints Row IV is absolutely crazy. It is, without a doubt, one of the most off-the-wall sandbox experiences you can have on a console or otherwise. It's an excellent cooperative adventure as well, and it delivers the franchis...

Review: Saints Row IV: Gat out of Hell

There’s something about a series that doesn’t feel the need to make a ton of social commentary, or really feel grounded in reality. The Saints Row series is like if the worlds of The Naked Gun and Grand Theft Auto...

This is Saints Row: Gat out of Hell's musical number

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

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.

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

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.

Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell was inspired by Disney movies

Jimquisition: To Play The Villain
by Jim Sterling

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.

Review: Saints Row IV photo
Review: Saints Row IV
by Jim Sterling

[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 back, and ultimately a little disappointing. 

When I finished Saints Row IV in 2013, I left the experience feeling incredibly sad. This time, however, it was for very different reasons. I was genuinely depressed to see the credits roll, because Saints Row IV, in contrast to its predecessor, had given me so much to fall in love with, reaching its conclusion could only ever end in disappointment. 

It is with a bittersweet heart, then, that I declare Saints Row IV perhaps one of the best open world sandbox games you could ever hope to play, and practically a culmination of everything the genre's worked toward this generation. 

Is that an exaggerated, hyperbolic, perhaps even pompous statement? Maybe so ... but does a series like Saints Row deserve anything less?

Jimquisition: Neutered
by Jim Sterling

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.

Let's Bloody Play: Saints Row IV Romance Options (video) photo
Let's Bloody Play: Saints Row IV Romance Options (video)
by Jim Sterling

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 the game. It's like Mass Effect, but with more fun-making.

It's a neat tip of the hat to BioWare games and the sometimes cynical way in which "romance" is set up, and it also lets you pretty much bang whoever you want. That is always a plus. 

Enjoy, but of course be aware that it's a little bit spoilerish.
