Saint’s Row IV Special Edition Features A Dubstep Gun

Where most special editions of games come with an art book or a soundtrack, the “Super Dangerous Wub Wub” edition of Saint’s Row IV has opted to go completely nuts. The special edition comes with a small Johnny Gat memorial statue, a “Dubstep Doomsday Button,” a 12-inch replica of the Dubstep Gun featured in the game with lights and sounds, and a copy of Saint’s Row IV.

Interesting special editions of games aren’t completely new, such as the special edition of Catherine that came with a pair of boxers and a pizza box, but a weapon that fires dubstep is definitely a first. The Super Dangerous Wub Wub edition will go on sale for $99, and supplies will be limited.

 

Exclusive: Warren Spector Comments On Deus Ex: The Fall Announced For iOS

Developer Eidos Montreal has announced the newest iteration of their critically acclaimed Deus Ex franchise Wednesday, entitled Deus Ex: The Fall. The game is not for consoles as many expected though; instead it’s a game designed for mobile devices. The game takes place after the events of the novel Deus Ex: The Icarus Effect.

The game will play as a first person shooter with third person elements much like the previous entry in the series, Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The game will be a fully featured Deus Ex entry, featuring RPG and action elements. This is the second console series to announce the jump to mobile this week, after Halo: Spartan Assault earlier this week, meaning an increasingly relevant jump to mobile for game development.

The [a]list Daily reached out to the originator of the franchise, famed designer Warren Spector, for comment. “I’ve always been happy that the DX franchise continues in the post-Ion Storm era,” said Spector. “And I’ve been pretty up front about my enthusiasm for the mobile and tablet platforms. So it probably isn’t too big a stretch to figure out that I think DX on mobile and tablets is pretty darn cool. Of course, it all comes down to execution, so the jury’s still out… In any event, DX: The Fall is now at the top of my ‘things I’m most looking forward to seeing at E3’ list.”

Spector went on to say, “As a note, some folks have expressed concern about FPS gameplay on mobile/tablets — ‘it can’t be done’ comments,” he said. “My response is this: Just because something HASN’T worked doesn’t mean it CAN’T work. And there are other ways to express DX-style play than FPS.”

Castlevania Lords Of Shadow Gets Ultimate Edition PC Release

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, the latest console iteration of Konami’s Castlevania series, is finally making its way to the Steam software distribution service starting this summer.

Ad Revenue From YouTube Mobile Triples, 40% Of Views In U.S. From Mobile

As Youtube rolls out more additions to it’s mobile services, 40 percent of it’s views from the U.S. come from mobile devices, and 25 percent of views come from mobile worldwide. In addition, the ad revenue from mobile devices has effectively tripled over the course of the last six months. Much of this increased revenue comes from the release of YouTube’s app for iOS which was released late last year.

As more people turn to mobile apps as a means of watching their videos, advertising on YouTube should also become increasingly mobile. Advertising for mobile apps could probably have an increasingly relevant place on YouTube for advertising. If more people are using their mobile device to view videos, odds are that they would be using their smartphones for entertainment as well, leaving a lot of room for advertising mobile games and apps.
