Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell Gameplay Trailer

Oh, how far the 3rd Streets Saints have come from the simple days of cracking thugs with pimp canes in the hood of Stilwater. The newest installment, and standalone expansion, Saints Row: Gat Out Of Hell yanks everyone's favorite gang-turned-pop culture icons right out of Steelport and into the slightly rougher territory of Hell. Of course, you and your buddy (controlling either Johnny Gat or Kinzie Kensington) are given some pretty sweet abilities to make your trek through New Hades less agonizing and more mindless, idiotic fun.

Warframe Receives Update 14.5 on Consoles

It's been quite a bit of time since I last stepped into my space ninja gear and took on the universe, but the latest update to Warframe for the PS4 and Xbox One versions has me thinking I may need to split my time between it and Destiny. I mean, just look at that screen! Apparently you get some kind of genetically engineered bat-dog?
