Saints Row IV (Part Two)
Hooooly shit.

Where I left off was about mid-game, but before anything "big" happened. I mean sure, an alien invasion is big news, but that's just the main plot. I'm, of course, talking about the sudden-yet-inevitable mid-game twist... and what a twist it was!

I'm not going to spoil it for everyone, but man, after that, the story really kicks into gear and it's a solid ride straight through to the end. You even find out the identity of our unknown narrator, which doesn't disappoint. And lemme say, it doesn't go anachronistic with it's choices like BioShock Infinite does, but every single licensed song in the game (heck, the series) is well-chosen, and gets a solid laugh out of me. To use an example from SR3, the final battle has you rushing to save your friends... the song playing? Bonnie Tyler's "I Need A Hero".

Though I have to say, even though this is probably a bit of a spoiler (if you haven't watched any trailers) this is probably one of my favorite moments in the game:

So yeah, definitely worth picking up, so if you did so in the recently-finished Steam Sale... Go Team!
