An ode to the gaming odd couple. Where would we be without Ratchet and Clank’s bromantic bickering or the gruff Mr DeWitt saving lovely Elizabeth from a metal budgie the size of an elephant? In that fine tradition, Volition now brings us ‘superpowered politician meets giant mech’. Saints Row IV’s vehicles truly are every bit as crazy as the game’s deranged premise.

Saints Row 4 has you playing the president of the United States… who has superpowers… during an alien invasion. Okaaay. While it sounds Volition’s sandbox series has simply waved goodbye to that single lingering strand of sanity. Then again as the game’s design director Scott Phillips points out: “When you think about it, a politician’s job isn’t exactly that exciting”.

Because sometimes you can’t make up a stupid enough headline. Saints Row sees the gang being “elected to the Presidency of the United States” and fighting aliens. Thank God we have the screens to prove this isn’t some weird cheese dream.

The trailer’s mental because it’s full of superpowers and aliens and punching people in the balls. The release date’s mental because it’s three weeks before GTA 5. Good luck with that.

The fact that Saints Row: The Third is crazy is no secret. Madder than a tumble drier full of gerbils. But only after spending some concerted time in its nutbar world do you start to realise that it’s also bipolar. One minute it’s loud, exciting and the life and soul of the party, joyfully throwing you into a massively OTT set-piece. The next it’s near silent – almost bashfully looking…

Honestly, you leave some people alone with a game for five minutes and the most unimaginable things can happen. All they had to do was capture footage of Saints Row’s Awesome Button – a magic ‘do everything’ trigger that hijacks car or performs combat moves in the move ridiculous way possible – and they come back with full frontal nudity, men in skirts and God only knows what else. That button is pretty awesome, though.

The Saint Row trophies are up on PS3trophies.org. No spoilers as such, more confusion and concern with awards when you “Do your first nutshot AND testicle assault.” Nice. There’s a fairly good spread with plenty of easy bronze and silver to boost your score. Anyway see what you think. You’ve got a bit of time before the game’s November 18th release date.

Saints Row The Third Weapons

Today’s Saints Row video is all about the weapons. From guns to missiles, rubber fists that turn people into human jam and mind control squids. Saints isn’t exactly aiming for realism. The keys words here are ‘really big’ and ‘really stupid’. In a fun way.
