Not only is there a ridiculous saving of over £40 compared to the next best offers elsewhere, it actually works out cheaper than a standard copy at the time of writing. The SDWW Edition comes with 12 inch replica of the in-game Dub Step gun, a pocket-sized Dubstep Doomsday Button, and an 8 inch Johnny Gat Memorial Statue. Perfect for fans of the Saints Row series, or for those who want to destroy the world with Dubstep. Thanks to Lomi @ HUKD!

Is Saints Row IV one of the best sandbox games out there for absurd fun? Why yes, yes it is. Follow the Boss, Shaundi, Pierce and the rest of the beloved Saints through their path to the stars with access to Saints Row 2, Saints Row: The Third, Saints Row IV and all of its available DLC for both The Third and IV.
If you've never played a Saints Row game and want to know what all the fuss is about, you can know own most of the outrageous sandbox series for £12.49 on Steam. The Franchise pack includes Saints Row, Saints Row 2, Saints Row: The Third and Saints Row IV complete with an insane amount of DLC.
I say "most" because the original game and Gat Out Of Hell standalone expansion aren't included, but this is still a great price for a huge amount of satisfying inclusive OTT ridiculousness. Thanks to M_the_C @ HUKD!
Saints Row IV might not be the most difficult game out there, but by god it's fun. Probably one of the finest sandbox games out there just for sheer insanity, Saints Row IV might just be the best game in the series (although I kind of swing between this and SR2 on a daily basis). You can grab it for around £4 at German site Games Planet, though only buy if you're based in the EU as the Steam code is region locked.
Be quick, mind, as there are only 12 and a half hours left to go for this flash deal.

I got a massive kick out of Saints Row IV thanks to its focus on giving you ridiculous superpowers, outlandish weapons, and setting you in a homage-toting version of the Matrix. It's a whole bunch of fun, and it's on sale over at the Humble Store for the next seven hours.
Not ready to stump up the cash for a PS4 and Infamous: Second Son yet? Well, this deal will save you hundreds of pounds for the Saints' latest adventure, now with aliens! The previously GTA-aping series has added a superhero element to the action by giving you insane powers like super sprinting, shooting fireballs, telekinesis and the ability to leap over buildings. Saints Row IV's super-powered take on the open-world genre is an absolute blast to play. Screw commuting to a mission like you do in GTA, when you can run faster than a car as the President of the USA while fighting off an alien invasion. Sane it is not, but we wouldn't have it any other way.

Shadow Warrior reboot releases tomorrow on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 - but if you plan on buying it on Steam and already own Saints Row IV, you may get more than you bargained for.
A dildo, basically.Click here to read more...
See what they did there? Either way, you can grab a free costume bundle for Saints Row IV on PC today only, and you might as well. It's not as if there are any other crime sandbox games on the market.

This week's charts are sitting in the doldrums, the calm before the storm. Something big is coming tomorrow, but in the meantime, the same old faces continue to jostle for attention, with no less than six games retaining the same chart position as last week. Saints Row IV still sits pretty at the very top, enjoying the last few hours of being the only crime sandbox title on gaming campus.
That said, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix has charged into the charts full-tilt, making an impressive second place debut above Diablo III's console port. LEGO Batman 2 and The Lord Of The Rings have also leaped back into the top ten, shunting out the likes of Rayman Legends and Killzone Mercenary.Click here to read more...
Saints Row IV maintained it's position at the top of the charts, but there were also no fewer than four new entries in the top ten this week. The Creative Assembly stormed into second place with Total War: Rome II, hotly followed by Diablo III, given a boost by its console release. The Vita got some sales loving thanks to Killzone: Mercenary and would you believe it, Farming Simulator 2013 has made the top ten in the console version's first week on sale here in the UK.Click here to read more...
Rayman Legends finally hit shelves last week following that excruciating delay, and the results were well worth the wait. Indeed, Matt awarded it a perfect ten in our Rayman Legends review. The sensational platformer has made its debut in sixth place, but predictably didn't quite manage to unseat the likes of Saints Row IV and Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Impressively, though, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn has stormed into third, doubly notable because UKIE's charts currently doesn't include PC downloads yet... and the servers have been struggling to keep up with demand.
Two new entries didn't fare so well, with mundane Lost Planet 3 and divisive Killer Is Dead scraping the lower twenties.Click here to read more...
The end of August saw what was possibly the most ridiculous fortnight of the year so far. We had a windfall of big-budget, outstanding titles from Saints Row IV to PayDay 2 to Disney Infinity to Rayman Legends. Oh, and Sam Fisher and Suda51 and a bunch of Sectoids showed up too. As did Platinum Games.
As such, this has been one of the toughest Game of the Month pieces to sort out. Not in terms of the outright winner, perhaps, but the runners-up have been hotly contested. And then there's all of the fantastic indie titles such as SteamWorld Dig and Papers, Please and Gone Home and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons and Shelter.
Here in the UK, we've actually had some sunshine this August. But thankfully, there were so many reasons for staying inside this month, safe from that massive cancerous ball of fire in the sky. Let's take a look at the best of them...
Saints Row IV -- Saints Row IV might not be the game that the die-hard Saints Row 2 fans have hoped for, but neither is it the bundle of juvenalia that The Third became. Instead, Volition have taken the best of both worlds and forged a fantastically self-aware opus that proves phenomenally engrossing whether you're dipping into it for a quick, cathartic blast after a long day or settling in for a few hours of extended gameplay. It's wonderfully referential and surprisingly refined in its approach to mixing things up, it's frequently funny and provides a challenge consistently even when you fear you're about to become too powerful. But best of all, it's a whole damn heap of fun, whether alone or playing with a friend. 9/10Click here to read more...
Hail to the chief: Saints Row IV has made its début in an assured first place, ably assisted by chief of staff Sam Fisher, whose game clocked in second. UKIE confirms that the "super-powered sandbox" is 2013's fourth highest-selling new release behind Tomb Raider, BioShock Infinite and The Last of Us - yet failed to match the prequel's sales. Hopefully the new console generation will help shake things up a bit.
Disney Infinity rounds out an all-new top three, which will need to make serious bank to recoup massive development costs. The Bureau: XCOM Declassified sneaked into tenth place below the predictable familiar faces. We've got the details below...
... wait. Where's The Wonderful 101? Erm... oh. 22nd.Click here to read more...
Developers: Volition Inc.
Publishers: Deep Silver
The 3rd Street Saints are much more than a bunch of purple-flecked gangbangers these days. In fact, they're running the country, and you, as the Boss, now answer to the name of Mr. President. There are a bunch of familiar faces in your Cabinet -- Keith David is your VP (now playing himself rather than the duplicitous Julius), Kinzie is your Press Secretary, Shaundi is heading up the Secret Service, and Benjamin "muthaf***ing" King is now your Chief of Staff.
And they all get kidnapped by aliens.
If you thought Saints Row: The Third went a little over the top, look away now. Saints Row IV goes bigger, better, and more batshit crazy than ever before. The Earth gets invaded by a race called the Zin, a bunch of extraterrestrials who resemble what the offspring of Mortal Kombat's Baraka and Goro might look like if they ever got it on. Their leader -- Zinyak -- is an egomaniacal Brit (to hear him speak), who finds himself amused at the Saints' tenacity, and isn't adverse to throwing verses of Shakespeare at you whilst bombarding you with waves of goons to demonstrate his superior strength and intellect.
The Zin enslave the human race, beaming them up to God knows where, and incarcerating key humans, such as the President, in individual virtual prisons, not unlike the Matrix. And much like the narrative in the Wachowski brothers' sci-fi opus, the game involves you breaking down the virtual code from the inside, exploiting glitches and corrupting the code of your own simulated dungeon, and gradually turning the red of the Zin into the purple of the Saints.Click here to read more...
Saints Row IV is out next week on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 - available in multiple editions including an insane $1,000,000 option - and we'll deliver our full review on the guilty pleasure sandbox very soon. To get you in the mood, Volition has released another developer diary examining how the new super-powers slot into the Saints Row experience, and how the virtual alien setting leads to all manner of silly and satisfying boomsticks to use.Click here to read more...
Dealspwn Playthrough is back, and today we're taking a look at Saints Row IV, the upcoming bundle of open-world insanity from Volition and Deep Silver that sees you play as POTUS with superpowers, attempting to thwart an alien invasion by a race called the Xin.
You can catch the first half hour of the game in our Opening Scenes video, but today we're showing a little bit of footage from the first few hours in which Matt lays the smackdown on a Xin flashpoint before using his superpowers to scale an alien tower in search of sweet XP and Cache credits.Click here to read more...
We’ve been looking forwards to Saints Row IV ever since Deep Silver surprised us all with its announcement earlier this year. Yet much of its hard-earned limelight has been stolen by Rockstar’s upcoming GTA V. Rockstar release a few screenshots, one gameplay trailer and the world goes nuts, despite the press not even being allowed to touch it. Same old story, same old Rockstar.
Well, balls to them. Less than a month before GTA lands, one of the worst gaming droughts we’ve seen ends with numerous big hitters and none of them look half as entertaining as Saints Row IV. Here at Dealspwn we’ve had plenty of updates, trailers, interviews and hands-on sessions and it’s time to tell you why you’ll be having more fun with the dudes in purple.
It's crude, rude, and lewd and you'll enjoy it all despite knowing better. Sure, we have games that try to be funny and just come out as embarrassing (hello Lollipop Chainsaw and Deadpool) but SR games have consistently amused with humorous missions and characters you'd never be able to call boring.
Unlike the competition, Saints Row has always allowed you to create the game’s leading star so there are no complaints about how they look or sound. Get under their skin and they still manage to have a fun personality thanks to a decent range of voices to choose from and a tongue-in-cheek script.
Rockstar tried to use Niko, Roman and it's collection of racial stereotypes to tell an interesting story in GTA IV, but amidst all the dull friend missions, overcooked accents and never-ending escort jobs, they proved to be a collection of unlikable, tediously miserable bastards. Whereas here we have a street gangster who became so popular they went from the crack house, to the whorehouse to the White House despite a seedy obsession for all things purple and gangsta.
What was the point of Rockstar trying to make Niko out to be this wounded soul, haunted by his past in Eastern Europe when most players were going to make him run down pedestrians, shoot pigeons and kill all of the prostitutes in Liberty City with molotovs before robbing their still flaming purses? Yeah Rockstar, a kill/forgive choice at the end was really deep after what we'd put the poor fucker through.Click here to read more...
Saints Row IV is in the house. Brendan is preparing a Sunday Seven for later that highlights just why Volition and Deep Silver's open-world playpen of insanity will rock your world later this month, but in the meantime why not check out the game's opening scenes in this new video.
There are spoilers, you understand, but if you're on the fence and somehow still not sure of what to expect at this point from Saints Row IV, put it in your face.
We'd also assume that if Keith David was our friend (how we wish it were so), he'd tell you to watch this. So you should. Because Keith David told you to.*Click here to read more...
