Kick alien ass in Saints Row IV


Then anal probe the alien ass
Aug 10
// Hamza CTZ Aziz
"We're definitely turning the tables on the aliens. For all the misery they've inflicted on the human race, being able to use the alien probe on them seems only just." -- Jim Boone, senior producer on Saints Row IV. Quote of the year, ladies and gentlemen. Quote of the year.

Saints Row IV: Everything you've ever loved in a blender

Jul 03 // Kyle MacGregor
Saints Row IV (PlayStation 3, PC [previewed], Xbox 360)Developer: VolitionPublisher: Deep Silver Release: August 20, 2013 We've previously covered the title's basic premise and gameplay quirks, so I'll refrain from beating a dead horse. Suffice to say, fans of Saints Row: The Third should be pleased. It's pretty much the same as its predecessor with a few subtle enhancements and touch of inFamous thrown in there for good measure. That's not a bad thing. Not in the slightest. One of the things about Saints Row IV that really grabbed my attention was the number of film and pop culture references the designers have managed to cram into the game. Within the first few minutes of playing the game there's a Medal of Honor-esque mission (complete with copious amounts of door breaching) named for Zero Dark Thirty. That's immediately followed up with a fistfight reminiscent of the final scene of Terminator 2: Judgement Day wherein the player knocks an assailant into a vat of molten steel. Moments later, the protagonist is inexplicably attempting to disarm a nuclear warhead as it hurtles through the air. A scene of self sacrifice, it evokes Bruce Willis' performance in Armageddon thanks to Aerosmith wailing "I Don't Wanna Miss a Thing" in the background. [embed]257442:49425:0[/embed] It doesn't stop there. As the protagonist's new-found super powers are gradually introduced, the game will whisk the player away into training rooms akin to those in The Matrix. Let me just tell you now that leaping hundreds of feet through the air from the top of one skyscraper to another is an incredible rush. Soon after, you'll escape from a virtual world through a door only to wake up in a stasis pod aboard an alien ship. In making your escape, hanger bay doors will slowly close around your vessel as Keith David compels you to "stay on target" whilst suggesting you "do a barrel roll." Oh, right! Following in the footsteps of Steelport Mayor Burt Reynolds is sultry-voiced actor Keith David, who turns in a remarkable performance in his portrayal of Keith David. It's pretty great. The star power doesn't stop there, though. Oh no! The character creator features an optional vocal track delivered by none other than famed voice actor Nolan North. Because of course it does. It all just goes to show how self-aware the team at Volition are. In addition to the ridiculously entertaining gameplay, the writers are constantly working to parody everything and anything. It doesn't always hit the mark but Saints Row IV will surely glean at least a few smirks and chuckles from players as they run around a virtual Steelport at the speed of sound, blasting foes with dubstep guns en route to fighting the alien menace.

Saints Row IV is going to be the best superhero game ever

Jun 11 // Hamza CTZ Aziz
Saints Row IV (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC)Developer: VolitionPublisher: Deep Silver Release: August 2013 The demo I went hands-on with started me off in the story where your character is now the President of the United States. You have to make your way to the press room to hold a conference, and along the way you'll feed your pet tiger, pick between signing a bill to end world hunger or fuck (cure) cancer, and punching an annoying senator in the dick. A President does what a President wants to. The President will also surround himself with only the people he trusts most, and in this case it's pretty much every major character from past Saints Row games. A ton from The Third like Shaundi, Kinzie, Pierce, Oleg, plus a bunch of others including Keith David as Keith David! Once in the press room all hell breaks loose as aliens crash the party, literally. They blow open the roof, and the leader of the Zen empire flies in, declaring to the world that they're here to take over the planet. Players then have to fend off aliens in the white house, but not before a quick stop in the Oval Office so you can equip yourself with the weaponry hidden behind various wall panels. Players will eventually make their way out to the front lawn of the White House where you'll hop into a giant turret  in order to shoot down alien spaceships swarming above Washington D.C. This lasts for a couple of minutes until the main mothership shows up and crashes right on your lawn. From here players will jump into the ship, confront the alien Zen leader and ... get your human ass handed to you. The Zen leader is no push over. Next we were dropped into the open world aspect of Saints Row IV, which takes place in a virtual reality simulation of Steelport. The city is largely the same, well except for the giant alien towers and spaceships that are scattered all over the place. The whole point of this virtual reality world is so the Zen can brainwash humans that are placed into it. You're the leader of the Saints and America though, and instead you bend the simulation to suit your desires. And this is where the superpowers come in. It's like how Neo was able to bend the Matrix to his will, except cooler because you have way more abilities here. Here's the list of just some of the powers you'll have: super jump, the ability to glide, super speed, wall running, telekinesis, ice blasts, super strength, fire attacks, and lightning attacks. You'll have to earn new powers and upgrades for them so you're not a totally overpowered badass right from the start. Plus your powers are tied to a meter that recharges over time in order to limit and balance things out. Oh right, there's still guns too. It's largely the same setup as in The Third, except you can also customize the actual look of your weapons now too. A machine gun with a skin that makes it look like a super soaker? Awesome! I got to use the Dubstep gun, which lost its novelty after like a minute. I did have fun with the new Black Hole gun which, you guessed it, shoots out mini-black holes that sucks up anything near it. As for activities, man, the map was so full of them it was insane. One new mini-game is Blazin', which utilizes your super speed to run through checkpoints across the map. Then there's Professor Genki's M.O.M (Mind Over Murder) where you have to use your telekinesis to grab people or objects and throw them at various targets. I had a lot of fun with Saints Row: The Third, and I know I'm going to enjoy Saints Row IV even more. Running around as the President with super powers in an open world setting? Fuck yeah.
