THQ has announced that plans for the next round of Saints Row: The Third DLC have been scrapped in favor of an all-new game. The next game expansion, Enter the Dominatrix, will be rolled up into a sequel that's set to launch in 2013. 

"When I looked at the Enter The Dominatrix expansion in production at Volition, I was blown away by the ideas and desire to expand the fiction of the franchise," said newly appointed boss Jason Rubin. "I asked the team what it could achieve given more time, more resources, and a broader scope for the project. We all agreed we wanted to play that game.

"When it comes to Saints Row, it's clear our fans want bigger, better, and even more over the top, and that's why Enter The Dominatrix will now be incorporated into a vastly expanded, full-fledged sequel, scheduled for calendar 2013."

The Third was set to have "forty weeks" of downloadable content, a plan that I felt reduced the quality of the main game. If Rubin's decision is indicative of games relying less on frankly ludicrous amounts of DLC exploitation, then I'm all for it. I hope that whatever Enter the Dominatrix becomes will be as ambitious and unique as The Third should have been.

There were enough worthwhile PC games tied to Games for Windows Live that I was willing to put up with service, which seemed to range from mildly annoying to downright frustrating, depending on the day. For many of us, Dark S...more

Hyrule Warriors' 'Master Quest' DLC is worth the price of entry if you're already addicted

Hyrule Warriors is a massive game. If you want to 100% everything, get every weapon, and max out every character, it could last you roughly 200 hours or more. I'm hitting the 100-hour mark myself, due in part to the new ...more
