Saints Row 4 has been a long time coming and, despite a mid-development publisher change, due to THQ’s bankruptcy, the team at Volition continued to craft a great experience. After seeing plenty of videos with the open-world title, the game is now set to appear this week for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 platforms. PC users who have already pre-purchased the game using the Steam digital distribution service can now pre-load the title and download almost all of the files necessary to play it. The actual game is set to be unlocked on Tuesday, August 20, in North America, and on Friday, August 23, in Europe and the rest of the world. FILED UNDER:

By and large, this is the same Steelport it was in The Third, but the color palette has changed considerably. Zinyaks version of Steelport is in a state of permanent night, so the entire city is largely dark. Theres plenty to do in Steelport, and, befitting the Saints Row series, its often crazy. But the thing thats changed the most in this fourth game is you. Forget cars and mere weapons, staples of the genre. They exist in Saints Row IV, exist in typically deep fashion, too.
Saints cut Seneca Wallace
NFL Training Camp Snapshot 2013: New Orleans Saints
Sports Seneca Wallace has come to the end of the road with the New Orleans Saints . The veteran quarterback was released today, according to ESPN. Wallace was vying for the backup job to Drew Brees against Luke McCown . He struggled against the Oakland Raiders , completing 3 of 6 passes for 32 yards with one interception, a fumble returned for a touchdown and was sacked twice for a 26.4 passer rating. So, now the third quarterback is rookie Ryan Griffin.
The next Batistuta, punch-ups with team-mates and a Johnny Depp lookalike… who is Saints new £15m man Osvaldo?
Tell me about his controversies? The fiery striker isn’t just a menace in front of goal… Osvaldo has been in trouble for punching team-mates twice, first flooring Nicola Mingazzini in pre-season training while playing for Bologna, before hitting Romas Erik Lamela in the face in 2011. Pablo Daniel Osvaldo joins Southampton Football Club Osvaldo was reportedly angry with Lamela for not passing the ball to him during defeat at Udinese, picking up a suspension and 50,000 fine for the altercation after the game. Lamela ignored Osvaldo’s complaints on the pitch, with the latter reportedly shouting: ‘Im older than you and this is not River, answer as I speak.’ Strength: Osvaldo holds off Brazil defender Dante in a friendly in March The former River Plate youngster Lamela reportedly then responded, ‘Shut your mouth, youre not Maradona.’ OSVALDO: CAREER STATS 2005 Huracan 33 apps 11 goals 2006 Atalanta 3 apps 1 goal 2006-07 Lecce 32 apps 8 goals 2007-09 Fiorentina 34 apps 6 goals 2009-10 Bologna 26 apps 3 goals 2010-11 Espanyol 47 apps 22 goals 2011-13 Roma 57 apps 28 goals That’s not all. This summer Osvaldo responded to a Roma fan heckling him at training by saying ‘I scored 200 goals, what the f*** you want?’ Not quite 200, but his 28 goals in 57 appearances were impressive, and it’s fair to say Osvaldo has the courage, or the ego, to stand up to his critics. Is he worth 15million? You don’t become Italy’s number nine for no reason, and it wasn’t just Saints tracking the striker this summer. Tottenham were also reportedly tracking Osvaldo, but Pochettino got his man and his third big-money signing of the summer.
New Orleans Saints
Though he collected no interceptions in 2012 for the Pittsburgh Steelers, he had 20 passes defensed and ranked 13th overall in Football Outsiders Adjusted Yards Per Pass metric. The Saints signed him to a five-year, $26.5 million contract in March, hoping he can help turn around a pass defense that was woefully Jimmy Graham Nike Jersey inefficient last season. Impact rookie(s): Two, and both on defense. The Saints took Texas safety Kenny Vaccaro in the first round, and hes just the kind of rangy hitter Ryan loves to have patrolling his backfield. Hes played strong and free safety, excels in the slot, and is a big (and sometimes reckless) hitter. Third-round pick John Jenkins out of Georgia is a mountain of a defensive tackle, but he has very surprising speed off the snap, and he will see a lot of different gaps in Ryans defense. Thats nothing new for him Jenkins played everywhere from straight over center as a nose tackle to defensive end in the Bulldogs multiple fronts. Its easy to see why the Saints found both players attractive.
