Dubstep guns and super powers…an alien invasion and a virtual Steelport…spaceships and insurance fraud (yes it’s back!), welcome to Saints Row 4! Saints Row 4, a game that is so out-of-this-word, so ridiculous, so…not serious, but yet is heaps of fun. To put into words the vast expanse of things one can do in the game is […]
DuckTales Remastered is WayForward and Capcom‘s HD remaster of 1989′s DuckTales, one of the best platformers released on the Nintendo Entertainment System.

BioShock: Infinite was good. But was it great? BioShock: Infinite did a few things quite well.
