Saints Row IV

Deep Silver announces Saints Row IV for August 2013

8:40 AM on 03.15.2013 // Jim Sterling

The Saints are back ... in the White House

From the ashes of THQ, Volition is back with its new masters Deep Silver, with the announcement of Saints Row IV. This time, the Saints set their sights on the entire United States, with players getting to become the President. 

Oh, and aliens have invaded, and transported the Saints to a weird Steelport simulation. Because Saints Row really needed to be more ridiculous!

"Saints Row IV lets players delve into an arsenal of alien weaponry and technology that will turn each Saint into an ultimate entity of destruction. Utilize out-of-this-world superpowers to fight all the way to the top. With intensified action and enhanced customization, players can use their newfound superpowers and leap over buildings, outrun the fastest sports cars, or send enemies flying with telekinesis in the greatest, most insane installment of Saints Row yet."

It'll be on store shelves August 20 in North America, and August 23 elsewhere.

After the 11th, I'm going into cryosleep until SMT IV Final is out. I'm sure Mike, Occams and Strider can manage without me. [img][/img]

In need of another writer for my monthly blog on the PS Plus games. Given how nobody really reviews all of them (and after spending time downloading bad ones), I thought it'd be a nice time to try and do it for the PS users out there. So... Need some help

Just watched the first dubbed Yokai Watch to see how it was. Not sure how I feel about the dub as a whole (never watched the original) and the lip sync was nonexistent, but it was decently entertaining. I wonder how kids will take to it.

Probably a bit sleazy to ask you to visit another site here, but I wrote a piece about what MGSV's story does for Big Boss as a character over at Syfygames. Give it a read if you're into a spoiler filled opinion piece!

I just started playing Kingdom Hearts 3D this weekend. I have never played any KH games before, and I have no idea of what is happening and why.I also was expecting a Lego ship and Donald and Goofy, but instead got some bootleg Pokemanz and skydiving.

Just realized that MegaMan 5 is probably twice as hard as Dark Souls. It's been a while...

There's levels to your love. Hopefully not underwater levels. People hate those. That Battletoads speeder level, too.

I'm not surprised that Nickleback was removed from the list of top 100 bands, they've always had their fair share of detractors.

Is anyone going to New York City Comic Con this week, from October 8th until October 11th? I'll be there, and it'd be nice to meet some of you Destructoid peeps!

Finished Freedom Planet as Carol the wildcat. You may also know it as the best Genesis game in the past 5 years.

My left hand is smooth as silk, but the right one is as shredded as gravel. The pros and cons of obsessive pot-washing.

The One-Punch Man anime premiered today. It's been years since I've put off reading something because I was waiting for the anime. I was not disappointed. The blend of action and comedy was amazing. I just hope they can keep up the quality.

Can you guys fix up the blog editor? It's a tiiiiny bit infuriating having to fix up extra paragraph spacing and paragraph merging whenever I save my drafts. And what's with ditching the photo side panel? Mmf.
