This weekend, publisher Deep Silver is holding a massive weekend-long Steam sale that means you can grab their entire library for crazy cheap — for 33-75% off — including Dead Island: Riptide for $20.09, Saints Row IV for $33.49 and Metro: Last Light for $26.79. That’s just a small taste of the discounts they’ll be offering until October 28th — you can see the full list here.
When I look back at some of my fondest gaming memories from this generation, Saints Row 2 stands out. It was a fantastically over-the-top open world game that, after the first game tried, and failed, to be Grand Theft Auto, the series really found its footing with its sophomore attempt. The third game was also amazing, but after finding success with Saints Row 2, the series seemed to lose its confidence. The result was a wildly fun game that felt a bit uneven.
With Saints Row IV, I’m hoping developer Volition has regained their confidence so they can give me a game worth shaking a giant, veiny purple dildo bat at. Let’s find out how they did in my spoiler free review.
For the next two weeks Humble Bundle has a very special promotion for Deep Silver’s titles, including the Saints Row and Dead Island series, which you can purchase for cheap with a portion of the proceeds going to charity.
For at least $1, you can grab Saints Row 2, Saints Row: The Third, Sacred 2: Gold Edition and Risen 2: Dark Waters. If you spend more than the average — currently at $4.80 — you’ll get the Dead Island: Game of the Year edition and Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package (this includes all its DLC). If you drop $25, you’ll also get Dead Island: Riptide.
Following the trend of Grand Theft Auto and Saints Row, the newly released Sleeping Dogs, a sandbox “take down the Triads” game, will feature a radio station that provides you with nothing but metal. However, Sleeping Dogs took it one step further and aligned themselves with Roadrunner Records. That’s right, the whole station is RR heavy rock and metal artists. If you tune in, you’ll be able to hear bands such as Opeth, Trivium, Killswitch Engage, DevilDriver, Black Stone Cherry, and more. Check below for the full list. READ MORE
Following in InFamous 2′s footsteps is Saints Row: The Third, which will be introducing vampires into the already whacky mix with the game’s third DLC offering. The DLC, due next week, doesn’t look to pack anywhere near as much content as Festival of Blood did, but I’m more than ready to add draining the blood of innocents to my busy Steelport agenda, right between beating the elderly with my big purple dildo bat and streaking passed elementary schools.
In case you haven’t checked it out yet, Saints Row: The Third is pretty incredible, so long as you’re the type of gamer who likes guns, gangs, zombies, deadly Japanese game shows, over-the-top action, explosions, co-op, and just plain fun. Head past the break for more info, and the DLC’s trailer. READ MORE
Valentine’s Day is the time for couples to show how much they mean to each other, but when most couples are dining at fancy restaurants or cuddling at the movie theater, some of us just want to stay at home and play video games with the person that makes us the happiest.
This assumes, of course, that you’ve found that special someone in your life, the yin to your yang, the peanut butter to your jelly, the Peach to your Mario. If you have then I suggest you read on for a few suggestions that might just add a little video game flavored love sauce to your life. READ MORE
