All is good in the land of The Saints. The much publicized collapse of THQ meant that properties were going to be sold off, including the Saints Row franchise. Volition, and its Saints Row game, went to Koch Media. Little did many knew was that Koch Media was the parent company of Deep Silver, the publisher of Dead Island and the upcoming Dead Island Riptide. As evidenced by the trailer they just revealed, Saints Row IV is alive and well. If fact, it has a release date: August 20, 2013.
Hmmm, let’s see. I’m 22 years old, I go to college, and I can make my own decisions as to whether or not I want to see certain things. Soooooo, why the hell is our American cover for Dead or Alive Dimensions showing a severe lack of Kasumi’s thigh? Simple: Because Tecmo Koei (or Nintendo) still thinks that we’re children and can’t handle Kasumi’s inner thigh. Look, we grew up on the Thunder Thighs that is Chun-Li, the Bounceress known as Mai, and DAT ASS known as Ivy (and the rest of the female Soul Calbur cast). I think we can handle Kasumi.
Oh, while we’re at it, Dead Island‘s logo was deemed by the ESRB as “too grisly.” So apparently the ESRB thinks we’re no ready to see hanging zombies spelling out the “I” in “Island.”
Good to see the spirit of Thomas Bowdler is still alive and well in the minds of some people. Oi vey…
