Volition's  Saints Row series is well-known for being one of the most ridiculous out there in terms of story and gameplay, and it appears that not a thing will change with the company's next release, Gat Out Of Hell.

“Doom” is one of those titles that is both legendary and also has been a frustrating tease. Back in 2012 “Doom 3” was remastered (we guess) for the Xbox and PS3, and earlier this year you could get access to a new Doom beta if you preordered “Wolfenstein” (what?).
