Ethical Saints Row Fun with Genkibowl VII DLC

On November 15, 2011 the city of Steelport was assaulted as the Third Street Saints, lead by the plastic-surgery addicted gang leader we all know (in various forms) and love. Since then over 5.8 million citizens have been killed by Saints, with over two million of those deaths the result of giant purple dildos.

But alas, there is a downside of the Saint’s success; many a gamer have now reached the end of their rampage, with no more story to progress, no more mini games to decimate and no more mascots to murder (I lie, there are always mascots).

Portal was released in 2007 as a part of Valve’s gaming collection, The Orange Box and was an unexpected hit with many gamers considering it the highlight of the package. No mean feat when you take into account the package included one of the highest rated and most loved video games of all time and its two subsequent episodes, the long awaited follow up to the wildly successful online FPS, Team Fortress. Despite being a puzzle game of barely a few hours in length with no weapons; or combat, Portal managed to impress and win over gamers with its mind-bending puzzles, a terrific and outright hilarious sense of black humour, and one of the most memorable, and likable video game bosses in recent memory.
