The Daily Hotness: Saints Row IV REVIEWSICAL!


Check out everything Destructoid did today

So, in case you hadn’t heard, I write songs about video games. And occasionally, I review games here at Dtoid (my review of Open Me! will be up later this week). Well, thanks to my pals in Fortress of Attitude, I got the idea to review games…as songs. Presenting, Insane Ian’s Reviewsicals, and the first entry, Saints Row IV.

Here on Dtoid today, Jim hit us with another Now Bloody Playing for DIVEKICK, Steven brought us another A la catridge cooking show, Tony reviewed SteamWorld Dig, plus a ton of previews came out of gamescom.
