New releases: Purple is back in style


2:45 PM on 08.19.2013



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 would ever reach the lofty heights of the purple gang's second outing again, but I was dead wrong. I have the tentacle marks to prove it. There just aren't enough games where you can slam into the ground with such power that you cause a nuclear reaction, especially not while dressed up as a giant eagle.

Other games that have the misfortune of fighting the Saints for the top spot are Splinter Cell: Blacklist, which is like Splinter Cell with different vocal chords; The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, which I'm sure we can all agree is a silly name and doesn't look as good as XCOM: Enemy Unknown; Disney Infinity, which looks like crack for children and the cause of bankruptcy for parents; and a whole bunch of other things, but I'm in a rush, so onto the lists and videos. 

What's tickling your fancy this week? Saints Row IV? Good choice.
