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…

Wot I Did On My Staycation

As you didn't notice, I've been away for the last three months, to focus on helping raise the child which will one day destroy the universe. In between prising the crushed, partially-chewed remains of smaller star systems from her tiny, iron grip, I managed to play a few videogames. Some for a while, but most only for a couple of hours. Despite myself, it was…

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…

GATV Free On Steam Today!

I apologise. While that title is technically correct, I will understand if you found it misleading. There are clues: the letters are in the wrong place, the image shows Saint's Row IV and not Grand Theft Auto, and there's the fact that it looks it's suggesting a game that costs a hundrety billion krugerrands is being released for free on its release day. That was…

No Oceans: EU Saints Row IV Has Stupidest Delay Ever

We've long lamented the inanity of delaying EU releases. Archaic systems meant that games were once released on Tuesdays in the States, and Fridays in Europe. And before the oceans between were concreted over, most were in ignorance of the difference. But now, in our contiguous international continent, this gap has become rather problematic. From the blatantly obvious way it encourages piracy ("This game is…

Saints Row IV review

After the fantastic Saints Row: The Third, the question from everyone went: how can Volition top this? How can they make a game that's more weird, more outlandish, more explosive? Then following the collapse of THQ, the license and studio was bought by a publisher who ignores the press when it's convenient for them, then hires pole dancers for preview events - could it survive…

Saints Row IV Dev Diary Explains A Few Things

In just three hours John's opinions on Saints Row IV will be unleashed on the internet. I have rarely seen him this excited, and that means something. It might be possible to uncover a few clues as to the meaning of his strange behaviour by watching the latest Volition dev diary for their insane opus, which I've gingerly placed below this post, hoping not to…

Why Not: Saints Row 4 Gets $1 Million Special Edition

Gaming industry, you can stop releasing progressively more expensive and unnecessary collector's editions now. Saints Row 4 has won - and quite handily, at that. A single, deranged soul can now obtain a $1 million version of the utterly unhinged open-world superhero United States President sim, netting them everything from a Lamborghini and plastic surgery to a trip to outer goddamn space. Why? Because Saints Row, that's…

Inaugural Madness: Saints Row 4 Gets Free Demo (Kinda)

You can play a very specific portion of Saints Row 4 right now! Sadly, rolling down the streets while leaving entire city blocks in dubstep-cratered ruins is still off the table, but you now have full, unfettered access to the gloriously unhinged open-worlder's character creator. No, it's not a real taste of all the game has to offer, but the uproarious lunacy is still strong in…

The Dongs Are Back In Town: SR4 Australia

You just can't stop the twists and turns in the Saints Row 4 classification story. After being refused twice on different builds of the game a third and final submission has been made. This time, according to local distributor All Interactive Entertainment, it has just the right combination of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll to somehow deserve only an MA15+ rating. Jumping two brackets (skipping…

Trouble Down Under: Saints Row 4 Refused Classification

Men (and women) have been At Work, Down Under, attempting to classify dildo-filled absurdity-fest Saints Row IV. They have finally... come.... to a conclusion. "In the Review Board’s opinion, Saints Row IV could not be accommodated within the R 18+ classification as drug use related to incentives and rewards is not permitted." You better run, you better take cover.

Telekinetic President: Saints Row IV Footage

If a trailer starts off with a West Wing inspired walk and talk, and ends with the American President telekinetically throwing a cosplayer through a neon sign, then by any standards it is a good trailer. This ten minute look at Saint's Row IV has that going for it, though there's a chunk of it set during an alien invasion at the White House that…

Volition Looking To Mod Support For Saints Row Games

News out of IdolNinja suggests that Volition are gearing up to support modding on Saints Row The Third, with potential support for mods on the fourth game. They explain: "Jeff Thompson, the Studio Director of Programming at Volition, is putting together a package for us containing documentation, file formats, tools, and more on the Saints Row: The Third engine. Myself, Minimaul, and gibbed will be…

President Reveal: The Saints Row IV Trailer

I spent 10 minutes over at Reddit's 'MURICA page to get inspiration for this post. I think I overloaded a bit too much on the blinding sunshine of American patriotism. Every time I blink my eyes I see stars and stripes, every noise sounds like an F-16 revving up to liberate communists, every bird I see is a squawking golden Eagle of Freedom and Liberty.…
