Welcome everyone! Today’s collection is Saints Row IV: Super Dangerous Wub Wub Edition. What an amazing title to well suit the game, it doesn’t take anything serious at all. I believe there was also an edition for like one million dollars that included a whole bunch of silly crap that only Saints Row would have. So withoutfurther ado let’s jump in.
Saints Row IV is an open world, action-adventure game developed by Volition and published by Deep Silver. It was originally released on August 20th 2013, and this game the long awaited sequel to the fantastic Saints Row the Third. The story this time around revolves around you the player being elected president, but soon after being invaded by aliens wo capture you and toss you into a simulation. Within this simulation you are able to develop super powers and use them to help save the world by destroying the aliens from within. Even though the game was met with criticising reviews of it feeling more like dlc than an actual new release, it still keeps hold of the classic humor of the series, never taking itself too seriously.
The always great soundtrack makes a return featuring music from many different popular genres and artists, giving a diverse selection whilst messing around in the open world.
The Commander In Chief Edition which is featured in this collection. This edition included a few dlc items like a transforming jet and special cover art for the game case.
Included in the Super Dangerous Wub Wub Edition is this Johnny Gat memorial statue. Standing at only a few inches tall it is not the biggest statue made and one of the smallest that I own. What it lacks in size it makes up for in quality, with the nice white, almost marble like design thay it has, it shows great detailing that helps to bring out it’s features, showing just how simple beauty can be. Seeming as more of a memorial piece than a statue this item pays homage to one of the beloved main characters throughout the series, the charming Johnny Gat.
The Dubstep Device
One of the cooler pieces of this collection is this dubstep device. In the familiar purple shade of the Third Street Saints, this device features a big red button that just begs to be pressed, as well as a lock and key featuring the Saints crest. The device comes locked away in a pretty convincing case, seeming as though it’s a special device with some important purpose.
Once it is unlocked, the switch is flipped, and the button is pressed, you are greated with an alien voice announcing: “Dubstep Device Activated” along with a countdown then a short dubstep track from the game. The sound quality could be a bit better as it has a bit of a static sound, the thing is also very loud and the sound cracks at times, but despite that the box it comes in along with whole theme of dubstep, it all comes together pretty nicely.
The Dubstep Gun
Now it’s time for the highlight of the entire set, the replica dubstep gun. Just as it appears in game but just a bit scaled down comes this baby, a beautiful addition to any collection. This item features a trigger button that can be pressed to engage the gun itself. When triggered a song that is used in game for the weapon begins playing, as well as a few lights flashing and a laser pointer coming from the front. When I first got this thing I loved turning it on and messing around with the light and sound show that it presented. This item is absolutely one of my favourites in my collection.
In total, this collectors edition was worth everything penny I spent on it. I love that multiple items in the set contained lights and sounds, something you can actually use and play around with, or simply use as amazing display pieces. The set itself is displayed in one of my main cabinets, showing off just how great these items are. I hope everyone enjoyed this little showcase, be on the lookout for much more. Until next time as always have a wonderful evening.
