In case you missed it, here's my full review of Saints Row IV and the Second Opinion from Sparky Clarkson. Personally, I had a blast with it and it more than made up for the nonsensical patchwork that SR3 was. However, I've been hearing some grumbling from others (a good number who came aboard the series with SR3) who didn't find it the same enjoyable experience that I did. Tastes certainly vary, but I think in this case it seems that a person's expectations are somewhat defined by what their first experience with SR was.

Johnny Get Your Gat
HIGH "Asha, that lightbulb has a family."
LOW The disappointing "sidequests" are just groups of area-control events you would probably do yourself anyway.

I hate Firefly pendants. I don't really hate anything intrinsic to the pendants, of course. They're much too boring for that.

First, here's my take on Dragon's Crown for PS3/Vita, which you may have heard about thanks to the brouhaha surrounding the hyper-sexualized art style. Personally, I thought it looked great, although everyone has their own preferences. However, it's an incredible game regardless of what it looks like, and it's probably the best beat-'em-up that's ever been made.
