Action PC News Playstation 3 Shooter Xbox 360 Microsoft Sony THQ Nordic

Ladies and gentlemen… big purple dildos covering baseball bats have officially claimed the lives of 2 million residents of Steelport. However, this figure is small when compared to the figure of lives lost in the carnage that is Saints Row: The Third. A total of 5.8 billion lives have been lost from gang and senseless violence. May all of those who have departed rest in piece.

In addition to the above figures, THQ has compiled a report on what else has been going on in Steelport:

    1. Players have spent a cumulative total of two years in their birthday suits.
    1. In Whored Mode, 44 million pimps, gimps and prostitutes have been dispatched.
    1. 650 hot dog mascots have been overcooked to death by players using a flamethrower.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some DarkspawnI started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come).In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers.If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West.Oh and anime is awesome!
