Saints Row: The Third. More DLC than a cow has moo.

Not many people probably care about this besides Zip and I, but Saints Row: The Third is on its way this year. Let's show some good shit, shall we?!

Here's the CG trailer:
YouTube Video


Thanks to E3 we got a bunch of footage that is pretty awesome. This can't be embedded however, because Gamespot is gay.

So is anybody besides me and a jihadist excited for this? Let's discuss how good it feels to be a gangsta.

Jam it back in, in the dark.

Saints Row 2 was an insane amount of fun, so I'm pretty anxious for this. It's nice to hear that they've nixed all the multiplayer modes that nobody cared about in favor of putting all their efforts into the main game.

I read an interview with one of the devs a couple weeks ago, and everything in it sounded extremely promising. Mayhem revamped so that you don't just chain fences, ridiculous costumes for the Saints gang members roaming the city, etc. There was a great quote about how the dev's favorite story regarding Saints Row 2 was a player who drove a pick-up truck through the city ramming old ladies while his co-op partner skydived naked from a plane into the back of the moving truck, and he wanted Saints Row 3 to be that insane all the time. Between what's been said about the first mission and that E3 footage I'd say they've succeeded. Can't wait to try out one of those STAG jets.

I think this trailer captures the spirit of the game best.

I'm not much for games like this as a rule (i've made it a point to avoid GTA entirely), but i played Saints Row 2 on a friend's PS3 for a while and found it to be extremely amusing. I like the fact that the game doesn't try to take itself seriously, so it's good to know that part of the game will be alive and well.

This thing is sticky, and I don't like it. I don't appreciate it.

Oh god I know. The moment I saw the gameplay footage from E3 I knew I was going to be absolutely in love with this one. Even more than the last, I'm sure. I doubt that the helicopters and jets you could get in 2 even remotely compare to that VTOL with laser beams.

I am honestly just stoked to see how much better the animations and graphics are in the game when compared to the second game. It's clear that taking resources they devoted to competitive multiplayer really has paid off.

I care about this!

My friends and I had way too much fun with Saints Row 2, so I can't wait to see what new mayhem is available in this one. The people cannon I saw in one E3 vid looks like a fantastic new toy, and I like that this game will have a proper tank in it too.

I wonder what new random minigames for deviant behavior this one will have.

I was speaking idiomatically.

I'm definitely up for this game in a big way (already pre-ordered it in fact). I loved the silliness and general over-the-top shenanigans that could be had in Saints Row 2 and I loved that game a huge amount despite it's many technical flaws. I'm certainly encouraged by the recent interviews where the developers have been saying their mission statement was to embrace the crazy so I'm definitely excited. Plus a new city to play in, so that's good.

Ohshi, time to actually play the second one after I (mostly) enjoyed the heck out of the first.

Ok, I'm sold. They had me at apoco-fist, but then they had to throw in airstrikes and tanks and jets.

It is nice to see that footage without the camera breaking away, and while being able to hear some of the sound effects and such. Seems like they added in a normal white guy voice for males. I'm sure some people will be pleased with that.

Had lots of fun with SR2; still haul it out every now and again. From what's been shown of this entry so far, it would appear that Volition has topped themselves. It's on the queue after things like EDF: Insect Armageddon and WH40K: Space Marine and Bastion...

This was posted on the blog on the website. It's a preview for a preorder bonus that I guess is extended to all preorders.

Welp, can't post the video. Just look at the blog I guess.

Guess I'll be putting in a preorder somewhere soon. The Man-a-pult was one of my favorite parts from that gameplay video, so that alone would be enough to make me put down a couple bucks.

I was under the impression the man-a-pult was a regular car, and this is only a skin?

If it's the case that it's entirely exclusive I might be forced to preorder from a non shit retailer at some point.

My impression also. Didn't the other man-a-pult car have a different face on the front?

The car with the human face on it was the Gatmobile. The Man-A-Pult has always had the Man-Cat face on it as far as I recall, since I read it's supposed to be for the Professor Genki activity. I did not, however, expect it to be a preorder bonus. I imagine you probably get to use it in game but not unlock it for use outside the activity without the preorder.

They are pretty good in Saint's Row about letting you have access to all the toys available. I would imagine the pre-order bonus puts the Man-a-pult in your garage from the get go, while normally you would have to complete all the Professor Genki activities to unlock it for city use. Kind of like the demolition derby cars in SR2.

That's true. Even the preorder bonuses like the UFO and mini-bike for SR2 were available with cheats.

Also here's this:

Looks like we got some new gameplay. I think this is the second or first mission, so don't watch if you don't mind minor starting spoilers.

None of my links are broken! Get it together, Arman!

Anyway, because I am obsessed I found some gameplay footage from Gamescom (I think). Not the best quality but it has some footage of a female player (topless), the hover bike, and a Professor Genki mission.

Armed hoverbike? Acquirable STAG battledress? Those are just two of the things I'll be going for when I get this game.

And now, some things that would not be unwelcome in SR3:
  • the ability to change/remove decals on Anchors, Five-Os, et cetera - you could in the first game, but this is oddly not the case in SR2.
  • the return of the Interest - seen only in SR1, and then only as part of Escort or Hijacking.
  • suppressors - I can't be the only one who was annoyed at the one and only appearance of a silenced pistol in SR2 being in a cutscene. Which would naturally lead to...
  • San Andreas-style stealth mechanics - if Saints Row is all about giving players options, do remember that some of us like to be Sneaky Basterds.
That said, who else is picking this up on the 360? Two against Steelport's gangs (missions aside) sounds like a lot of fun.

IGN has a preview of a mission up called Murderbrawl. This shit looks bonkers. I guess this could be a spoiler if you didn't want to know how a boss fight goes. At least I think it's the boss fight.
