Starting things off with a bang: Chad looks at Saints Row 4, which was on display in its new, Australian Edition format. Is all the fuss really worth it?

Saints Row IV lets players delve into an arsenal of alien weaponry and technology that will turn each Saint into an ultimate entity of destruction. Utilize out-of-this-world superpowers to fight all the way to the top. With intensified action and enhanced customization, players can use their newfound superpowers and leap over buildings, outrun the fastest sports cars, or send enemies flying with telekinesis in the greatest, most insane installment of Saints Row yet.

Making the weekend even bigger, Surprise Attack was named as Australia’s first indie games publishing label. With three big games on the way, we caught up with founder Chris Wright to find out some of the whys and the hows behind the company.

Targeting all games platforms, including PC, Mac, Linux, mobile, tablet, console and browser, Surprise Attack Games aims to be a new kind of games publisher, focused on partnering with independent teams in the local game development community. Beyond marketing and distribution, the label will help its developers secure the development funding and creative resources they need to bring their visions to the world.
