Release Date Man: Mighty No. 9 Due In September

Jump, man!

Being fairly clueless about console platformers for most of my life, I had been awfully surprised to discover Capcom made a long series of So Solid Crew platformers. (That’s a joke about PC isolationism and early noughties English pop culture. You don’t get gags that rich every day.) After Mega Man co-creator Keiji Inafune left Capcom, he, well, decided to make more Mega Man, crowdfunding Mega Man ‘em up Mighty No. 9 [official site] to the tune of almost $4 million.

Now it has a release date, though a bit later than its once-planned spring launch: September 15th.

Wot I Think: Saints Row – Gat Out Of Hell

Saints Row: Gat Out Of Hell arrives later this week, but we’ve been annoying Satan before that. And in the game. Unfortunately review code was all-too-familiarly later than promised, so this review is written before I’ve managed to complete the whole game. We’ll update it with anything crucial if necessary. Here’s wot I think:

Dead Island: Epidemic Ready To Infect Beta Players

If you’ve missed word of Dead Island: Epidemic before today, it is – deep breath – a free-to-play multiplayer action hack and slash arena game. It’s pursuing a cartoony look and feel and, from a trailer voiceover, it’s making no bones about trying to be funny (although I hope the game itself aims a little higher than a silly voice).

There’s a little more info on this kinda-sorta-maybe-MOBA in a post we ran all the way back in June, although details will have changed since then. Epidemic has just reached open beta and there’s a new trailer to celebrate.

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

Uh, it's pretty unrealistic for someone to fly, let alone on such damaged wings. Fix your game, Volition.

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 Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell and it seemed like something you might like. I’ll just leave it here, shall I?

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 look a little nicer or tweaking the game in mechanical ways. This first release contains tutorials, templates and tools for weapon model modification, using stuff from the newly-announced Gat Out of Hell expandalone as an example.

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 somewhat problematic, alternative to GTA, rather than a clumsy clone. Last year’s Saints Row IV somehow survived both the collapse of THQ, and the conversion from add-on pack to complete sequel, to become one of the funniest, funnest games ever. So it’s with justified happy expectation that we receive the news that there’s to be a standalone expansion to part VI, Saints Row: Gat Out Of Hell.

Escape Dead Island Has A Release Date, For Some Reason

Escape Dead Island has a release date! The spin-off to the main Dead Island series will trap you within its zombie-infested confines come November 21st. There’s a new trailer below the fold as evidence of this fact, though it fails to answer another more important question: why does this game exist and who is it for? Perhaps you can watch it and let me know in the comments.
