Humble Saints Row Bundle has other games too

The new Humble Saints Row Bundle is only about 50% Saints Row, puffed out with rusk and a little spice, but that’s a legally acceptable ratio for sausages and I suppose will do for a pay-what-you-want bundle of video games. It’s more like a Humble Deep Silver Bundle but shops don’t go calling pork sausages ‘pork, water, and rusk sausages’ either.

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.
