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...

Hellraid totally isn't cancelled

When a game is announced to be “on hold” or “on hiatus,” we usually just take that to mean it has been cancelled. Prey 2 was put “on hold,” and that still breaks my small, withered heart. I’m able t...
