Well, Saints Row IV finally came. And before I could even tear the plastic off the case, my girlfriend called to inform me that she was headed home from work early and that, all of the sudden, we were now going to be spending the rest of the evening with her family.
Life's ability to rock hard one second and be cocksuckingly awful the next, well, that just never ceases to amaze me.
Saints Row IV is essentially that plain Jane 6 at the bar who, after a couple of adult beverages, turns out to be a surprisingly alluring 8 (from the future) who can seduce with her wanton chaos and inimitable charm. Turns out, dumb & ugly aren't completely intolerable when surrounded by so much fun, auteurism, and candy-colored explosions.
This....this just CAN'T be real.
It's for little kids. No risk screwing up their eyes with the 3D. Yes you can turn it off, but kids are still nosey. Like most of us are. It's also cheaper so it is less a strain on parents' wallet. No hinge so there is a less chance of breaking. It all makes sense. It's not for us (grown people who still play games) it's for the little kiddies.
Amazon currently has Medal of Honor: Warfighter brand new for $5.99 on both PS3 & 360. I know this place is full of military shooter enthusiasts, so I'd thought I'd pass it along. :)
Sucker Punch took a page out of Volition's handbook and have added destructible environments to Infamous: Second Son. This is now my most anticipated next-gen title.
