Highway to Hell
Considering the boss of the Third Street Saints built a gajillion-dollar media empire, was elected President of the United States, gained badass super powers, and took down a hostile alien race, I suppose it's only fitting that the Saints' next adventure takes place in Hell.
Saints Row: Gat out of Hell, coming in 2015, is a standalone expansion to Saints Row 4. After the Saints' boss gets sucked through a portal to H-E-Double-Hockeysticks, Johnny Gat and Kinzie Kensington follow after him in an attempt to, in Gat's words, shoot Satan in the face. Now, after playing the game for a bit, I never so much as saw Satan--but I did get to obliterate the next best thing: collar-popping demon bros.
This particular side mission tasks me with taking as many of them out as I can within the allotted time limit. An easy task, due entirely to my new hell-themed arsenal and super powers. As demons wearing tight pink t-shirts rush at me as though I'm a keg of Bud Light, I take to the air to get a feel for Gat's new wings. With them, you can soar through the burning skies, sort of like Batman in Arkham City--dive bombing is a great way to pick up speed, and pulling up afterward let's you fly almost indefinitely. I fly to a better vantage point, at which point I take a look at my awesome new weapons.
For starters, I take down a few demon bros with a rifle that shoots swarms of locusts. Yep, awesome. Next up: a grenade launcher that fires explosive frogs. Ahhh, look at those bros fly. Then I find a neat little toy called God's Hammer. As you may guess, it's a huge blunt weapon, and everytime I swing it into the cracked, pot-holed pavement of Hell's poorly maintained streets, it sends out huge aoe shockwaves. But none of these weapons compare to my new powers: the ability to summon demons of my own, and an aura that forces all enemies nearby to worship me, granting me a huge damage bonus. Talk about a power fantasy--within the span of a few seconds, the demon bros are no more. All in a day's work.
