Review: Red Faction Guerrilla: Re-Mars-tered

As far as games worthy of a remaster go, Red Faction: Guerilla is a prime candidate. The game didn’t sell abysmally, but it never got the attention it so rightfully deserved in 2009. Released at a time where hype for upcoming sequels ...

Review: Agents of Mayhem

Volition took Saints Row in such a nuttier direction than anyone could have predicted. But after ruling Stilwater, taking out the military in Steelport, being trapped in a virtual world and fighting aliens, and literally going to Hell, sure...

Mighty No. 9 found its way into the Humble Saints Row Bundle

They're pitching it as the Humble Saints Row Bundle, but with extra games like Mighty No. 9 and Killer is Dead, this is really more of a Deep Silver dealio. Which, hey, it worked. They got my attention. Pay $1 or more: Risen 3: Titan Lords...

Volition's Agents of Mayhem has a lot of potential

Agents of Mayhem must've slipped off my radar, but it's back on now. Gosh I hope this turns out well. Today's trailer better introduces three of the game's dozen playable characters: Hollywood, Fortune, and Hardtack, who you might recogniz...

Saints Row IV opens the floodgates for mods

Saints Row IV is a wacky game as is. Each entry in the series pushed the absurdity further, and in this one, you are a gang boss turned democratically-elected President of the United States that fends off aliens using superpowers because wh...

Saints Row IV is playable on Xbox One, Mr. President

As of today, you can play Saints Row IV on Xbox One via backward compatibility. This was to be expected, considering the absurd open-world title is a part of April's excellent Games with Gold lineup (and Xbox 360 games featured in the progr...

Want to play that cancelled Saint's Row game? You can!

Less than a week ago I reported that you could check out a few clips of Volition's cancelled Saint's Row: Undercover, a PSP game that never was. I thought it was cool that Volition even let it out the door considering how maniacally protect...

Volition shows off canceled Saint's Row game

The games industry is a rough one, its expensive, fast, and merciless. There are no shortage of games that are quietly killed in their sleep mid-development never to be seen again. However, Volition has made the somewhat maverick decision t...

Review: Saints Row IV: Gat out of Hell

There’s something about a series that doesn’t feel the need to make a ton of social commentary, or really feel grounded in reality. The Saints Row series is like if the worlds of The Naked Gun and Grand Theft Auto merged, and th...

This is Saints Row: Gat out of Hell's musical number

"It's a whimsical, weird fucking game," former Volition creative director Steve Jaros said of Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell when I spoke with him about the Disney-inspired standalone expansion. It's true: there's a musical number involving S...

Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell leaves no deadly sin unchecked

Johnny Gat's not a good man. Powerful, but not good. That's why he uses each and every of the seven deadly sins to send all of those already dead to the after-afterlife. Most of them look like they deserve it, to be fair. Especially those ...

Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell was inspired by Disney movies

I've played and enjoyed all of the Saints Row games to date, but wonder how much longer this can last. How much more ridiculous can the series get, and even if there is room to up the insanity, do we even want that? Where Volition goes from...

29 pieces of goddamn DLC included

Well just like Saints Row: The Third, Deep Silver is re-releasing Saints Row IV and including all 29 downloadable content packs. Really? 29 goddamn pieces of DLC? Ugh. Gross, but now's as good as time as ever to buy Saints Row IV simply for...

Volition was making a post-apocalyptic Western

It's games like Zeus that have me not writing off entire concepts, no matter how tired they may appear on the surface. As described during senior producer Greg Donovan's Game Developers Conference talk "Volition's Challenge: Defining Projec...

Japanese folklore still tends to be pretty mystifying to the average westerner, but I still find it hilarious how out of their way some marketing teams went to remove any cultural identity from the Left: Pocky & Rocky, Right: the Japanese
