Saints Row 3′s Expansion Is Evolving Into Saints Row 4

By John Walker on June 20th, 2012.

INTERNET RAGE!

Times are hard at THQ, despite their releasing a ton of good games of late. The publisher is strapped for cash, and it just keeps getting worse, most recently its shareholders launching a class action suit over the disaster of their U-Draw flop. Whether that’s a factor in today’s announcement, that Saints Row: The Third stand alone expansion ‘Enter The Dominatrix’ is now to be integrated into the fourth game, we’ve no idea. But that’s what’s happening, according to THQ boss, Jason Rubin.

Purple Haze: Saints Row 3 The Trouble With Clones

By Andrew Smee on March 22nd, 2012.

↓, ↘, →, punch

Saints Row The Third’s third DLC pack was just released, detailing the further exploits of the Third Street Saints, this time with the foul creations of unhinged Science. When will people learn? The Trouble With Clones is the latest in Volition’s short-form content packs for the silliest excuse to have fun there is, keeping with the scifi B-movie themeing following last month’s groovy Gangstas in Space. I’ve got some brief thoughts below about the way Volition are treating DLC, as well as the new Clones trailer. It features purple superpowers.

edit: As Maltose says in the comments, Saints Row 3 and all the DLC is currently 50% off on GamersGate.

OnLive Silly Sale: Arkham 2, Saints 3 For £1

By Alec Meer on November 25th, 2011.

Non-steamy windows

Cloud gaming service OnLive is banging its drum for new members in the UK again, so they’re reactivated their remarkable £1 offer (which they’re surely making a massive loss on – they must have ton of marketing money stored up). Your first purchase after joining currently costs just 100 pennies, and that includes the likes of Batman: Arkham City, Saints Row 3, LA Noire, Lord of the Rings: War In The North and Deus Ex: Human Revolution. All PC versions, but tweaked for OnLive – which in Arkham’s case means no GFWL. Woo! OnLive has its issues, but I really rather like it – I’ve played quite a lot through it now, and while the experience differs from game to game for a lot of titles on a decent ISP the experience is pretty incredible. Especially if you have the microconsole thingy and are sat back on a sofa – with your face stuffed directly into a monitor the cracks are that much more visible.

Oh, and if you already have an OnLive UK account, that doesn’t stop you from creating a new one purely to nab a game for £1. Repeatedly, in fact – you just need a different email address every time. Snicker.

Canonical: Saints Row 3 Officially Official

By John Walker on March 3rd, 2011.

There's not enough wing walking in games.

Thank goodness for that. Saints Row 3 is officially official. We’ve known it’s happening for a while, and a recent leak of images made it even more undeniable, but nothing’s real until the publisher says so. THQ said so. And this is good news, because I want it. And what I want counts.

Saints Row 3 Confirmed For Autumn

By John Walker on February 3rd, 2011.

I wield a lot of power. What I’m saying is, you should fear me. I was only bemoaning the lack of Saints Row 3 confirmation a couple of weeks back, and THQ instantly leapt into action. “Volition!” they screamed. “Walker needs the third instalment! WORK HARDER!” And so it is, with the news that a third in the anarchic and puerile series will be with us this Autumntide. THQ CEO Brian Farrell told listeners to a conference call,

“Volition is setting a new bar for this outstanding franchise and we look forward to unveiling this game in the near future.”

He didn’t say whether this bar would be high or low. I’m really hoping for low. Come on Volition, what have you got that’s more gross than the shit-spraying lorry. There’s no web presence for the game yet, and certainly no screenshots. Do hurry up. Ooh, I want to play some Saints Row 2 now.
