2017 Steam Award winners include PUBG, Cuphead & Witcher

We've already seen which games sold best on Steam last year, but a perhaps more meaningful insight into movin' and a-shakin' in PC-land is the games that people feel warmest and snuggliest about. To that end, Valve have announced the winners of the 2017 Steam Awards, a fully community-voted affair which names the most-loved games across categories including best post-launch support, most player agency, exceeding…

Report: layoffs at Saints Row dev Volition

Saints Row and Agents of Mayhem studio Volition has laid off about 15% of its employees this week, according to a Kotaku report citing three unnamed sources. While layoffs after a big game launches aren't uncommonas studios become far less busy (Agents of Mayhem came out last month), reportedly Volition general manager Dan Cermak was among those let go - and that is a touch…

Agents of Mayhem trailer features Johnny Gat as Magnum PI

Agents of Mayhem [official site], the explosion-laden singleplayer shooter from the creators of Saints Row, is shaping up rather nicely by all accounts. And by 'all accounts' I mean the accounts of both Holly and Adam, who enjoyed the over-the-top action of separate preview builds. It's just got a new trailer showing a man punching a car into lots of others cars, which all go boom,…

Saints Row 2 is free on GOG right now

It's Saints Row a go-go round GOG today as the store celebrates more of Volition's wacky open-world crime 'em ups arriving DRM-free on its virtual shelves. Some Saints games have been on GOG for ages but now the lineup is complete with the addition of Saints Row 4 (the one where you're the President of the USA) and Gat out of Hell (the one in…

Saints Row 4 launches Steam Workshop for mods

Back in the day, to install mods we needed to trudge through the digital snow -- upcyberhill, both ways -- and we'd consider ourselves lucky if we only got caned thrice for mistyping DOS commands. The youth of today are spoiled, simply clicking a few buttons in the Steam Workshop to install and play mods. Where's the graft? I swear, some of these kids playing…

Saints Row Devs Announce Agents Of Mayhem

Saints Row creators Volition today announced they'll release a new open-world explode-o-rama in 2017, though it's not a new Saints Row. Not really. Agents of Mayhem [official site] will see the good-ish guys of M.A.Y.H.E.M. (the Multinational Agency for Hunting Evil Masterminds) scrapping with the dastardly L.E.G.I.O.N. (the League of Evil Gentlemen Intent on Obliterating Nations) in open-world shooty antics. Here, check out the announcement…

Descent Veterans Kickstarting Basically Descent 4

Remember that Descent game Kickstarted by people by who didn't make Descent? Here's an unofficial Descent remakequel Kickstarted by people who did make Descent. If Descent was on your Kickstarted comeback bingo card, then today's the day to wave your pen in the air. Mike Kulas and Matt Toschlog, lead creators of the 1990s' beloved six-degrees of freedom spaceshippy FPS, have gotten the band back…

Smash Some Stuff: Saints Row 4 Free’s Steam Weekend

Alec has already told you to play XCOM this weekend if you haven't, seeing as the full game's free to try on Steam. It's "one of the best games of the last few years" says he. Aye, maybe it is, and maybe you could. However. If you fancy real-time smashing rather than turn-based tacticisicing, have a bash at the superpowered open-world antics, shenanigans, and -…

Civ: Beyond Earth & Saints Row IV Steam Free Weekends

Civilization: Beyond Earth does have a demo, but it's limited to 100 turns - not many to feel how a Civ game ticks. Given lukewarm responses to it, you might want to see more. Here's your chance: the full game is free for everyone to play on Steam until Sunday evening. Saints Row IV is also running a free trial weekend but surely you already…

Rowy Horror Show: Saints Row IV The Musical

Demonstrating an impressive refusal to stop being absolutely ridiculous, Saints Row 4's about to offer up a standalone expansion named Gat Out Of Hell, in which the gang come to bust you out of Satan's pile. This much we already knew, but getting to witness the heights of its divine (or quite the opposite) madness first-hand is something else. GTA V might have had a…

What Are You Playing This Weekend?

I've gone retro with my gaming for this weekend, but what era am I revisiting? The low-bit arcade stylings of the late 80s? The JRPG heyday of the PlayStation years? Ten years ago, when Half-Life 2, World of Warcraft and Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines all came out within a week of one another? No! I've been travelling the mysterious, mystical land of, uh, 2013.…

Watch It And Weep – Saints Row: Gat Out Of Hell

Say, you wouldn't fancy seeing Johnny Gat blast away with a locust gun, fly on burning wings, blow up demons in a rocket-launching motorised armchair, summon imps, mow down lost souls, and pick a fight with an archduke of Hell, would you? See, I try not to post too many trailers, but I saw this trailer showing five minutes of gameplay from the upcoming expandalone…

Now Modding: Saints Row IV’s First SDK Release

If you're some how bored of the massive collection of mostly ludicrous weapons in Saints Row 4, you've come to the right news post. Over on the Saints Row Mods forum, the first part of the SDK for the raddest of last year's open world games has been released. SR4 already had a modding scene, you see, mostly for skin creation and modifying existing assets to…

Saints Row: Gat Out Of Hell – Down In The Valley Next Jan

Volition have announced a new entry in the Saints Row franchise, the curiously in-joke entitled, expandalone, Gat Out Of Hell. After the most ugly of starts, Saints Row has gone on to be one of the series most worthy of excitement in recent years. Saints Row: The Third saw the franchise free itself of its genuinely unpleasant origins, and realise itself as a joy-filled, if…

Saints Row IV, COH 2 Get Free Weekend On Steam

The weekend's just over the horizon and I couldn't be happier. Well... except for one thing. I'm terribly afraid, actually, that my Friday, Saturday, and Sunday are going to be too tonally consistent. No wild mood swings. No spine-separating ups and downs. What a drag, right? So thank goodness that both Company of Heroes 2 and Saints Row IV will be free all weekend on Steam.…

Special – Saints Row IV: How The Saints Save Christmas

Every great pop culture entity needs a Christmas special. I mean, who doesn't love seeing their favorite characters shoehorned into an emotionally hollow, often obligatory plot that ends with a Very Valuable Lesson about family or selflessness or time travel ghosts or something? It's a tradition nearly as old as Walmart itself. But OK, in fairness, some Christmas specials aren't entirely terrible, and if anyone…

What You Want To Hear: Saints Row IV Sold Well

Deep Silver have had quite the couple of years. They've gone from a European publisher of quietly successful strategy games and RPGs (the X games, Gothic, others), to finding mainstream success with Dead Island, to picking up where THQ left off with Metro: Last Light and Saints Row 4. In an interview with Deep Silver's CEO, The Penny Arcade Report mention that Saints Row IV…

Saints Row IV: Enter The Dominatrix Dropping This Month

Once upon a time, Saints Row IV didn't even have its own number - let alone a snazzy, posh purple Roman numeral. It was nascent, in a pre-life phase that many organisms have known at some point or another. That is to say, an expansion to Saints Row: The Third. Back then, it was known as Enter The Dominatrix - at least, until THQ (may…

Headcase: Saint’s Row IV First-Person Mod

There isn't much that Volition didn't cram into Saint's Row IV. The design is a tombola of ridiculous things, a churning barrel of awesome nonsense that you randomly pluck fun from, and then give a child a teddy bear. Hmm, I over-analogised that one. Not that you shouldn't give a child a teddy bear, but if you do it after every moment of fun in…

Wang Squared: Saints Row’s, Er, Bat In Shadow Warrior

Normally I wouldn't even bat an eyelash at some random cross-game promotional effort - let alone dedicate precious RPS Hyper Maturity Space to it - but this time is different. The reason? Two of the dumbest, most laughably enjoyable games I've played in ages are colliding, and there is now no way that last clause wasn't a euphemism for something, authorial intent be damned. Yes, it's…
