Have You Played… Saints Row 4?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. We were all left mystified as to how Volition would follow up Saints Row 3's epic nonsense. Few guessed it would be by Saints Row 4 [official site] having you become President of the USA, then get captured by aliens, the Earth blown…

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 -…

Have You Played… Saints Row 2?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. I think it's my favourite Saints Row game. It doesn't have neon megaskyscrapers, superpowers, or laser guns, but the down-to-earth ultraviolence of Saints Row 2 appeals to me. The 3rd Street Saints were my gang, not my fanclub gushing over how great I…

Saints Row – Gat Out Of Hell review

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:

Have You Played… Red Faction: Guerrilla?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. There was a point back in 2009 when I became obsessed with Red Faction: Guerrilla. I've always liked destructible scenery in shooty, 'splodey games and Guerrilla looked like it might change the landscape of action gaming forever. No more would we tolerate canned…

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…

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…

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…

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…
