Cliffy B Schools Saints Row In Tweet Barrage: "Lose The Gimps And Dildos"

"BF Didn't Go After COD By Putting Dicks On Their Guns"

Gosh, what a headline. In response to Koch Media acquiring Volition and the Saints Row franchise during the THQ feeding frenzy, Cliff "Cliffy B" Bleszinski (formerly of Epic Games) has given the publisher some free and frank advice in an extraordinary series of tweets. The Gears Of War designer purports that the franchise should be a major rival to Grand Theft Auto, but immature direction is holding it back and damaging industry perceptions.

We've got the whole wonderful, ridiculous, uncensored thing after the break.

Bayonetta Hitting PSN Next Week, Costs £11.99

If you've yet to play the best brawler of this generation (no, really, it is), Bayonetta will be available to download on PSN next week for £11.99. This is a £3 saving compared to its downloadable Xbox Live counterpart, though note that the PS3 version was let down by some frame rate issues and pronounced screen tearing from time to time. I daresay that a little legwork will find you cheaper used copies elsewhere, but it might be worth paying for the convenience.

Bayonetta 2 will be a Wii U exclusive and is potentially set to feature dual foot-wielded whips as an equippable weapon if the latest dev diary is anything to go by.

Their words, not mine. The latest trailer for Aliens: Colonial Marines promises to 'Kick Ass,' featuring some tub-thumping (and/or terrible) dialogue, sentry guns, brutal close-range scuffles and a wub wub breakdown about halfway through.

That said, those Xenomorphs certainly seem to love blithely staggering towards you while under fire. We sincerely hope that the moment-to-moment action lives up to the impressive nostalgia value.
