If you’ve somehow missed playing the Saints Row series, you can make up for it by getting your hands on most of the PC saga for a rather low price.
IndieGala are currently offering a two-tier Saints Row bundle. $4.99 will get you Saints Row 2, Saints Row: The Third, and 17 bits of DLC for Saints Row: The Third. If you pay more than $13.75, then you also get Saints Row 4 and 26 bits of DLC for that.
Apparently, all of this would normally cost you $170, which is probably accurate assuming you don’t ever use sales or anything. As it stands, though, it’s still a pretty decent price. Saints Row: The Third and Saints Row 4 are both ridiculous and brilliant, and Saints Row 2… would be ridiculous and brilliant if it wasn’t crippled by one of the most infamously awful PC port jobs of recent years.
The missing title is Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell, which is presumably recent enough that it’s not yet fit for inclusion in bundles.
Still, it’s a solid bundle. Even with Grand Theft Auto 5 finally out on PC, this series offers a rather less serious and more ludicrous take on the open-world crime genre, with the fourth game completely breaking from convention and throwing in superpowers, aliens, and virtual reality. I’d say it’s worth a punt, but considering there’ve been plenty of bundles and plenty of sales on these games, I wouldn’t be surprised if you already have some of the titles.
If you fancy picking this stuff up, click on through to IndieGala and make your purchase. You’ve got until Monday.
