Telekinetic time bombs, airstrikes join Saints Row 4 in new DLC


Flight is passé and heat vision is so "Clark Kent," so what's an aspiring, super-powered world leader to turn to when expanding his or her arsenal? Explosions, lots and lots and lots of explosions.

The Element of Destruction DLC pack adds three new abilities to the already ridiculous arsenal found in Saints Row 4. First, an attack that allows you to lift and throw enemies, only unlike your normal telekinesis, when you fling this hapless foe, the poor thing will detonate, doing damage to anything caught nearby. If you'd instead prefer to explode dudes up close and personal, the second power turns any enemy who gets too close to your character into a walking (and running and screaming) time bomb.

Exploding jerks is all well and good, but the pièce de résistance for this DLC release is the Airstrike Stomp. Like the standard Stomp, this moves allows you to leap into the air, then come crashing back to earth, dazing nearby foes and sending them flying into the air. In any other game that would be enough, but the Saints Row series isn't known for its restraint: Those enemies might survive being propelled into the air, but they won't survive the ensuing rain of explosive ordinance.

The Element of Destruction DLC pack is now available for Saints Row 4 at a price of $3.

HEY GUYS

HEY


HHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY :D

I know a lot about hay because I'm from Texas. All of my European colleagues keep asking me these questions about Thanksgiving in Texas that are pretty hilarious, so I wanted to share with you the picture of Thanksgiving in Texas that I shared with them. DO NOT RUIN THIS FOR ME AND CALL BULLSHIT THIS IS REAL TALK AND HOW THINGS ARE DONE IN MY DIMENSION OK???? Only real talk.

Anyway this is what Thanksgiving in TX is like yall-

OK so like tomorrow morning Imma get up. I have to get up before 10 which is really hard to do man because I am a lazy shit. Then me n mah hub (not usb hub)(which reminds me I just ordered one from amazon, where the fuck is it?) are gonna put on boots and shit and like 500 layers of hats UNDER our stetsons because its fucking KMN freezing right now (40F) and go out into the country on horseback. We'll kill our horseback turkey on horseback with like the Lord of all Rifles. Then once we've got the turkey squared away and tied to one of our horses we'll pick off an armadillo because its like the one day a year that its legal to kill an armadillo and you know when it's legal to kill something in TX you just do it, man. OK so then finally I'm sure on the way back to our house we'll run across a rattlesnake somewhere and have the horse step on its head since no one eats the head and bring that sucker home too just to round out the meat selection. Once we get home mah hub (not usb hub) will start guttin and skinnin' all the meat and shit and feed the heart to our cats which is gross. I will take the tiny pumpkins that the chupababies have grown really fond of carrying around and adorably saying "da PUNKINNNNNN" and brutally hack them up into pieces and make 50 pumpkin pies of which I will personally consume 4 a day. (I will regret this rate of consumption immensely once my personal trainer finds out. Don't tell him. He will crush my head with a 100lb kettlebell named Thor.) While dinner is a'cookin we will get drunk and watch the COWBOYS V RAIDERS game and yell all loud n ignorant at the TV (whether or not they are winning or losing) while I will drunk tweet bullshit at anyone I know that is a Raiders fan. Then once we're hella drunk and can't speak to each other anymore from yelling we'll cover our meals with gravy from the world's tiniest oil rig and use backhoes to literally dump the food into our detachable jaws. Once we have consumed 3X our body weight in sustenance we will then go and pay tribute to the Christmas tree and pass out in a foodtoxication coma underneath it.

Yeah.

So anyways if that is not your plan for Thanksgiving this is what I think you should do for real.

There's a DLC pack coming out today for Saints Row IV. It gives you NEW SUPERPOWERS and more creative ways to eviscerate people! Of course my fav thing to do in the game is the obliteration of nutsacks but sometimes you have to shake it up u know?

So yeah. Element of Destruction pack for Saints Row IV is out today! It lets you do awesome shit like pick some bitch up and TK them away but oh snap they turn into a time bomb and when the time is up they go BOOOOOOOOOM and its like double shitty for them. Or then like, you can apply a buff to yourself which makes all the morons that step to you turn into walking sticks of dynamite and then they also go BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM. OH but listen my fav one is the Airstrike Stomp where you like Stomp on the ground and you're like NO GTFO and then all the bad dudes around you get sent flying up into the air while shitting fire. The bad dudes are like WTFFFFFFFFFFFF and you're like HAHA >=) and then before the bad dudes figure out WTF sposions happen and its all airstrike Independence Day NEVAR FORGET all around you. And then you're all like LOLZ, IDIOTS. The end.

OK so here's the link to download the trailer and assets!
