Anthony and Ashley Burch are funny people. Anthony was one of the lead writers of Borderlands 2, and Ashley runs the fucking hysterical webseries “Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin’?” on Youtube. They have credentials. Credentials that have now gotten themselves their own DLC pack in Volition’s hit action game Saints Row IV.
The DLC makes Ashley, Anthony, and “Papa Burch” homies you can acquire in the alien controlled hell-scape of awesome that is Steelport.
Speaking on their website, Anthony Burch describes the process of how this DLC came about; “AHHHHHHHHHH,” he said, before continuing on.
“Basically, we met a bunch of cool guys from Volition at PAX and E3 and geeked out at them every chance we could get. Anybody who follows our show knows we are big fans of the Saints Row games and their sense of humor.” He recounts a conversation he had with a member of Volition. ““We were talking about stuff we could do,” one of them told me, “and somebody suggested a Hey Ash pack and our producer turned around in his chair, deleted what we’d previously slated for December, and just said, ‘I typed it in the spreadsheet. We’re doing that now.’””
“I have literally no idea why they would think this was a good idea, but we decided not to stop them.” Can’t blame you there, Anthony.
The DLC can already be downloaded on Steam, Xbox 360 and PS3 for $1.99. Check out the trailer above, and our Saints Row IV review here.
Now, if only we could get a Twinfinite DLC….
