Johnny Gat joins the roster of Divekick

When I first saw the trailer above, I thought "C'mon, Maurice Tan, former Destructoid writer/current Deep Silver PR dude, April Fools' Day was last week, you're a bit late with the jokes." But no, it's no joke; Saints Row ma...

Saints Row IV thinks highly of itself, releasing Game of the Century Edition

Ever since the third installment in the series, Saints Row has been a franchise that hasn't been afraid to toot its own horn. Not necessarily without cause, though -- after all, Saints Row IV was pretty darn good. B...

Play Company of Heroes 2, Saints Row IV for free on Steam
by Jordan Devore

This weekend on Steam, both Saints Row IV and Company of Heroes 2 will be playable for free. If you like what you find and want to continue after 1:00pm Pacific on Sunday, which is when this promo ends, the titles are on sale to own for $19.99 and $13.59, respectively.

You surely don't need me to tell you these titles are worth the time it takes to download them, so I'll just say in the case of Company of Heroes 2 that all of the game's paid multiplayer commanders are also going to be unlocked during this free weekend.

Voice actor says he's working on new Saints Row

Actor and comedian Jay Mohr said on Twitter yesterday that he was contributing to a new Saints Row. Not that anyone was expecting Volition to stop making these games all of a sudden. "About to do my voice over work for new Sa...

How the Saints Save Christmas is the next Saints Row DLC

Above all else, I dig the spot-on name for Saints Row IV's upcoming DLC. How the Saints Save Christmas promises to be "a holiday classic for the whole family" (riiight) when it arrives on December 11 for $6.99, or as a free d...

Saints Row's dildo bat is a weapon in Shadow Warrior

For all of the time we've spent talking about it, Destructoid readers should be familiar with Saints Row: The Third's "The Penetrator," aka that dildo baseball bat. I'd say it's back, but it never truly left. The infamous mel...

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.

Saints Row IV's tentacle bat got built in real life

Sure, the Saints Row: The Third dildo bat was cool. However, today is the day of the tentacle. Saints Row IV, in its self-one-upmanship, needed to raise the ante and thus the tentacle bat was born. What's more, a team of spe...

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?

Very quick tips for Saints Row IV photo
Very quick tips for Saints Row IV
by Chris Carter

Saints Row IV is the wackiest game yet. Just when you thought hitting people with giant dildo bats was crazy, how about smacking aliens with giant dildo bats while running 100 miles per hour, leaping 100 feet in the air -- as the President of the United States!

Yep, Saints Row IV features super powers, and a giant, sprawling city to play around in. With great super powers comes great responsibility, so read on for some tips to help quell the Zin menace.
