Watch Now: Superhero President Battles Aliens In New ‘Saints Row 4’ Trailer

Saints Row IV Image

A new trailer has been released for Volition’s sequel to Saints Row: The Third, which will be simply titled Saints Row IV.

The trailer shows the Saints leader—who’s now president—and the alien invasion he has to now deal with as the man in charge. It’s absolutely insane and absurd…just as you’d expect a Saints Row game to look. Anything more tame would only be a let down.

The game is now being published by Deep Silver after THQ filed for bankruptcy, but is still on course for an August 20, 2013 release and can be pre-ordered on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC now. You can check out the new trailer for Saints Row IV below now.

THQ Humble Bundle

Do you Like that warm fuzzy feeling you get when you know you are helping a good cause? Are you a gamer? Well, if you’re a Steam user, let me direct your attention to the Humble Bundle from THQ.

For the small price of PAY WHAT YOU WANT, you can get your hands on six (or seven) top notch games from THQ. You can also choose to send some or ALL of the money you pay for this Humble Bundle to charity. The standard Humble Bundle consists of Darksiders, Metro 2033, Red Faction: Armageddon, and three Company of Heroes games (the original CoH, Opposing Fronts, and Tales of Valor). Does none of this tickle your giving spirit? Well, if you should decide to donate more than the ‘average’ amount (which is currently sitting at around six dollars), you will also get a copy of Saints Row: The Third.

Guillermo Del Toro’s Horror Video Game ‘inSane’ May Have Found A New Developer

inSane Image

A new horror video game from the mind of the great Guillermo del Toro and inspired in some aspects by the works of H.P. Lovecraft is a video game that’s going to excite people. As it turned out, however, THQ was not among those people.

Unlike his massive R-rated H.P. Lovecraft project, At the Mountains of Madness, which still seeks a new home as he finishes work on his upcoming blockbuster, Pacific Rim, it appears that the video game, titled inSane, may already have a new home.

Darksiders II

DEVELOPER: Vigil Games
PUBLISHER: THQ
RELEASE DATE: August 14, 2012

I have the great pleasure of offering a unique perspective on a video game for a select group of potential players. Usually when I review a game it’s one that I’m familiar with and one that I’ve been anticipating for multiple years. In the case of Darksiders II, I went in almost completely blind.

I never played the original Darksiders. I did play its demo when it was made available and was thoroughly neutral; I didn’t hate it or anything, but had no intentions of playing the full game, either. Because of this, I had absolutely no knowledge whatsoever of Darksiders II, allowing me a chance to offer an opinion to those who never played the first but are thinking about checking out the sequel.

THQ Cancels Guillermo Del Toro’s ‘inSane’ Video Game Trilogy

inSANE Image

Remember that video game titled inSane being developed by Volition Studios along with the great Guillermo del Toro through THQ? Last we heard a year or so ago they had been developing it for about a year with still two to three more years to go, it was being built as a trilogy, and it was going to be a massive sandbox-style game with some truly terrifying beasties to encounter.

Well, as it turns out, THQ either wasn’t impressed enough with what they were seeing, or didn’t want to wait as long as they were waiting to get the game. It’s been announced that the company has canceled pre-production on inSane, effectively reverting the rights back to del Toro.

Price: $49.99

A few weeks back I wrote this article when the demo of Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine was released. Well, now that I’ve finally gotten myself waist-deep in the full version of the game, consider this to be the ‘Extended Edition’ of that article.

Everything I said before still stands true so I won’t waste our time here re-telling you how visceral the gaming experience felt to me then. I also won’t flood you with adjectives and verbs about how bad-ass it felt to slay millions of Orks using your ChainSword, Bolter Rilfe, and more.

It still does. It still is.

Guillermo del Toro Says New Game ‘inSANE’ Has H.P. Lovecraft Qualities

inSANE

Given that Universal Pictures recently denied us of another exciting Guillermo del Toro monster movie—the H.P. Lovecraft adaptation, At the Mountains of Madness—it’s no great shock that the director has integrated a little Lovecraft inspiration into other projects of his.

For those who didn’t know, del Toro is a geek and a gamer at heart, and he’s been hard at work stepping into the realms of video games. He admittedly was clueless going in, but he’s learned a lot as production on the game he’s working on with THQ and Volition Inc., inSANE, has moved forward. And now del Toro shares that the game has a “Lovecraftian” quality to it, making it even more exciting than it once was.

Continue reading for more, and to see the super teaser trailer for inSANE you have not yet seen it.
