Agents of Mayhem is a third-person action game set in the Saints Row universe, in which players can choose three out of the 12 total playable Agents, then swap them out mid-battle to change up their strategy or gameplay experience. But who can they choose? We got a sneak peek at the answer in the game's newest "Franchise Force" trailer, where we're introduced to the first three playable Agents -- Hollywood, Fortune, and Hardtack.

Hollywood is a flashy, self-absorbed former adult actor. He believes the agency should be marketed, and he is the "Face of MAYHEM". Fortune is a sky pirate who excels at stealth and takes on the thief role. She also commands drones which can assist in the action. Hardtack is high on defense and happy to mock his opponents in battle.

In Agents of Mayhem, the world has been taken over by LEGION -- or the League of Evil Gentleman Intent on Obliterating Nations. It consists of criminals and costumed villains who must be stopped. When taking a break from the action, players will have access to The Ark, the base of MAYHEM. The Ark can be upgraded and customized to make it feel like home. 

Agents of Mayhem is developed by Volition and will be published by Deep Silver. It's scheduled to be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on August 15, 2017.


How Many Characters Can You Play in Cartoon Network Battle Crashers? Not Enough... Thu, 03 Nov 2016 10:35:34 -0400 SarahKel

This month, Cartoon Network will be releasing a new family friendly brawler game called Battle Crashers. It's a 3D side-scroller that lets you play as some of your favorite Cartoon Network characters. 

But there's been some confusion about how many characters will be available in the game, and which ones those will be. But after a bit of clarification from the development team, we can say for certain that there are only six characters available for the game

Players can play as:

  • Finn and Jake from Adventure Time
  • Regular Show's Rigby and Mordecai
  • Clarence
  • Steven
  • Gumball
  • Uncle Grandpa

Both Finn and Jake and Rigby and Mordecai play as 1 cooperative unit. 

You can either play these characters on your own, or use the drop-in drop-out 4-player local multiplayer. It's very an easy to play game, and full of the bright colours and humor of the Cartoon Network brand -- plus it's very family friendly. There are also replay maps with special modifiers to create extra fun and unlock additional rooms.

Each character has a special ability to fight villains, which encourages more cooperative play. For example, Clarence puts out fire with his soda gun, whilst Rigby and Mordecai remove electric charges with electronic gloves, and Steven shields other characters. All the special abilities are needed, as some characters are better to defeat traps and villains than others.

Uncle Grandpa starts the game, and you pick up the other characters along your way to fight evil shard creatures. Uncle Grandpa has accidentally driven his UG-RV through multiple dimensions... eek. This is where he encounters the other characters who then join the game.

Even though the game looks like fun, it's a shame the roster is so small -- especially given the sheer number and variety of awesome Cartoon Network characters. I personally wish I could play as Princess Bubblegum -- and find it odd that there's no sign of major franchises like Ben 10 or The Powerpuff Girls.

As the game isn't quite out yet and will only be available for PS4, I hope that there will be other characters introduced and as part of a free DLC, rather than a paid for expansion pack. But we'll have to wait and see.
