Save Santa from the Simulation in Seasonal Saints Row IV DLC

Yule like this one

North American developer Volition’s silly sandbox excursion Saints Row IV is set to refresh this winter with a spot of seasonal cheer. Fans of the open world adventure will be able to rip open a new add-on from 11th December, which will detail the Saints’ attempts to save Santa Claus from a Matrix-esque simulation. Judging...

UK Sales Charts: Saints Row IV Still Current Incumbent, Lost Planet 3 Burrows Deep

Killer Is Dead fails to entice the general public

Two of last week’s big new releases did not inject much enthusiasm into the UK sales charts. Lost Planet 3 got off to a dismal start, digging itself into 26th position. Meanwhile, the latest title from Grasshopper Manufacture mustered an even more disappointing debut, with Killer Is Dead...

Review: Killer Is Dead (PlayStation 3)

Killer Is Dead (PlayStation 3)

Crud on the moon

Killer Is Dead is unashamedly stupid. Executive producer Goichi Suda – better known by his nickname Suda51 – has made a living out of his bonkers plots and premises, but the latest product to drop off Grasshopper Manufacture’s production line takes the nonsense of No More Heroes and kits it out in a straitjacket. This is a...

UK Sales Charts: Saints Row IV Takes the Seat at the Summit

Inauguration station

Saints Row IV has been sworn in at the top of the UK sales charts, fending off strong competition from Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Ubisoft’s sneak-‘em-up settled its night vision goggles on second place, while pricey toy platform Disney Infinity finished in third. Isn’t it nice to be able to talk about some new games for a...

Saints Row IV (PlayStation 3)

The boys are back in town

At one point in Saints Row IV, your character, the Boss, tells series veteran Shaundi that it’s been “one helluva ride”, perhaps inadvertently summarising developer Volition’s latest title. What started out as little more than a franchise looking to piggyback on the success of Grand Theft Auto has travelled an awful...

Saints Row IV's Wad Wad Edition Costs a Million Bucks

Money bags

Another day, another Saints Row IV publicity stunt – except this one seems to be having the desired effect. Deep Silver has partnered with GAME to announce the sandbox adventure's one-of-a-kind ‘Super Dangerous Wad Wad Edition', which will set you back a cool $1,000,000 to own. No, we’re not making this up. So, what does the...

Review: Narco Terror (PlayStation Network)

Narco Terror (PlayStation Network)

Don't do drugs

Narco Terror is a cheesy 1980s action movie squeezed into a pseudo-isometric twin stick shooter, full to the brim with stupid one-liners, massive explosions, and drug peddlers with machetes. It’s a game that’s based on simply having dumb fun – but how long does it take for the novelty to wear off? As you may probably guess, the...

Duh, Of Course Juliet Starling Is Going to Be in Killer Is Dead

Girl power

Killer Is Dead hero Mondo Zappa will have yet another reason to pull out his controversial gigolo glasses this year, as Lollipop Chainsaw protagonist Juliet Starling is set to make an appearance in the game. The bright-eyed cheerleader will flash her pom-poms at some point during the title’s over-the-top campaign, but it’s not yet...

Johnny Gat Is Back with a Vengeance in Saints Row IV

Here's Johnny

Much to the disappointment and rage of many, Volition decided to kill off fan favourite character Johnny Gat during the opening hour of Saints Row: The Third. Despite reappearing as a zombie later in the game, and as a giant mutant in the 'The Trouble with Clones' DLC, these cameos weren't really enough to appease the disgruntled...

Bundled with a bevy of goodies

Grasshopper Manufacture’s latest eyebrow-raising endeavour Killer Is Dead will flirt with store shelves on 27th August in North America, publisher XSEED Games has announced. All launch editions of the bloodthirsty outing will be bundled with an 80-page hardcover art book, a soundtrack featuring 25 songs produced by...

Review: Sacred Citadel (PlayStation Network)

Sacred Citadel (PlayStation Network)

Imitation is the sincerest form of splattery

A group of adventurers are attacked while relaxing in a tavern and must flee a town that has been set ablaze: does this sound familiar? Indeed, as the opening of Sacred Citadel mirrors the events of the first stage of Guardian Heroes, co-op brawler fans can look forward to a number of nods in reverence to...

Should have gone to Specsavers

Killer Is Dead looks poised to give Yakuza’s table tennis mini-game a run for its money in the inappropriate gameplay stakes. This brand new clip – completely in Japanese – shows protagonist Mondo Zappa seemingly accumulating points by staring at an aesthetically pleasing female’s assets. After eyeing the...
