The Daily Hotness: A bit of the old Ultra-Violence

Check out everything Destructoid did today

Man I can’t wait for Saints Row IV. It does worry me a bit that the sequel started from what was only supposed to be an expansion pack to the last title, but even that tidbit can’t curb my excitement. Just a teaser trailer and a few screenshots so far, and already I find myself sharpened up and ready for a bit of the old ultra-violence. Screw milk-plus.

Today Jim gives us the skinny on how good Dead Space 3: Awakening is (hint, it’s not), while Chris tells us if Darkstalkers Resurrection is any fun (hint, it is) at all. We’ve also got not one, but two promoted Cblogs for today, while Freddie Wong delivers a brilliant mash-up spoof of American Psycho and Metal Gear Rising. Seriously do go check that video out. It’s the best five minutes you can spend today.
