Saints Row 4: Game of the Century Edition is real, US release not decided

Not content with making a "Game of the Year" Edition, Deep Silver has confirmed a "Game of the Century" Edition for Saints Row 4. First spotted on Amazon, this re-release will predictably feature all of the game's DLC, including the "Enter the Dominatrix" expansion, the "How the Saints Save Christmas" mission pack, and more.

Saints Row was originally called 'Bling Bling'

Saints Row was originally called 'Bling Bling'

Saints Row wasn't always called that, Volition senior producer Greg Donovan revealed at a talk at Game Developers Conference. When presented with the opportunity to make an original IP, Volition presented "Bling Bling" to THQ--a publisher that was largely focused on making licensed kids games.

"Bling Bling is a third person action game about style, music, gangs, and guns... It is the game equivalent of a gangster rap music video," the pitch said.

Best of 2013: #10 - Saints Row 4

Best of 2013: #10 - Saints Row 4

The Saints Row series began as something of a bargain bin Grand Theft Auto knock-off, aping the best parts of more successful games without their cleverness or creativity. Somewhere along the line, likely during the development of Saints Row 2, the developers realized they could only reach so high as pale imitators, so they went their own direction by lampooning the whole thing. Saints Row 4 is the culmination of this attitude, and as much video game parody royalty as Naked Gun is for films. It's cheeky, goofy, and the full realization of Volition's choice not to live under GTA's shadow anymore.

Oh, actors, never change. Be it a plot twist or unannounced game, we can always count on you to spill some fresh beans. The latest such instance seems to come from actor and video game fan Jay Mohr, who says he's working on a Saints Row game. Oops!

Saints Row 4 'Element of Destruction' DLC adds new superpowers

So, there's a new Saints Row 4 DLC pack available today. It adds new superpowers to the game. We were going to describe them to you, but the crazed rant of Deep Silver PR made it impossible to decipher what's going on. Here, why don't you try to figure it out?

Saints Row 4 DLC promises to 'Save Christmas' on December 11

Saints Row 4 is the gift that keeps on giving--assuming you've purchased a Season Pass, of course. On December 11th, Volition will release a new holiday-themed expansion for their open world game: "How the Saints Save Christmas." The DLC will have Santa trapped inside the simulation. "Can the Saints help the boss discover the true meaning of the season in time? A holiday classic for the whole family," publisher Deep Silver notes.

Saints Row 4 review: suped up send-off

Saints Row 4 review: suped up send-off

The trajectory of Saints Row has been watching your player character, "The Boss," fail upwards. He (or she) is not particularly clever or skilled at anything besides causing havoc, but has ended every game at a higher level of power and influence.

In Saints Row 4, The Boss has now risen to the level of President of the United States, and of course, it's not going particularly well. The presidential premise seems to fall by the wayside once aliens invade and trap humans in a virtual prison, but I don't think it was just a silly throw-away idea. It pronounces upfront that your character is actually kind of a boorish jerk. This is an ensemble production, and trouble follows when the Boss forgets that he needs the Saints more than they need him.

Saints Row 4 producer 'didn't appreciate' THQ's focus on porn stars

Saints Row 4 producer 'didn't appreciate' THQ's focus on porn stars

Saints Row is known for its over-the-top and sometimes sexual humor. But it went a bit over the line, according to Saints Row 4 associate producer Kate Nelson. THQ's focus on porn stars like Tera Patrick in Saints Row 2 and Penthouse Pets in Saints Row 3 missed the point of the humorous tone.

We've all seen games dub a special "Game of the Year" edition--even those with dubious credentials. Saints Row 4 is one-upping them with a cheeky "Game of the Generation" edition. The special edition has a limited run of 5,000 copies, and will cost $130.

What started as an expansion to Saints Row 3 later became part of the main game of Saints Row 4. And now, a new expansion also called "Enter the Dominatrix" will serve as DLC for the forthcoming adventure game. It's like the circle of life, but more confusing.

Saints Row 4 pre-order bonuses play superhero dress-up

Saints Row 4 has shown off its flashy pre-order duds, and they are appropriately absurd. Putting down your reservation at participating retailers gets you two extra superhero costumes: the Iron Rogue for men, and Queen Amazonia for women. Given that this game will feature superpowers, it's only fitting.
