Saints Row: The Third

The Real Battlefield Has Purple Dildos

Saints Row The Third - a game that has been distilled from the boiled nightmares of Daily Mail readers - fears nothing in its ambition to mock and satirise the whole of existence. The massive moving targets of the monolithic military shooters that are currently trundling toward us on the hype-train are easy pickings for the Volition crew, as you can see below. Saints Row's…

Trendbusting: Saints Row 3 PC Undelayed

Saints Row: The Third seems a bit more mad every time I see it and the latest announcement concerning its release is one of the maddest things of all. Showing a keen satirical sensibility, this declaration has emerged from the neon-lit, glitterball-strewn funhouse that is Saints Row HQ: THQ and Volition announced that the PC version of Saints Row: The Third is scheduled to release…

Tron Don: Saints Row 3’s Virtual Reality

It looks like Volition are not yet finished with their campaign to subvert everyone's expectations regarding Saints Row: The Third. I thought the craziest it could get is maybe a bigger poo truck than in the second game, but here we see an entire digital world squeezed inside the digital world of Steelport. As Saints Row: The Third's urban warfare spills over onto the digital…

Saints Row 3’s Street Cleaner, Hoverbike

A brief "vehicles" trailer for Saints Row: The Third has turned up. It shows off the game's street-cleaning machine, so that's good, but it also shows off a hoverbike and what appears to be a rocket-boosted sportscar. It neglects, however, to demo the VTOL jet or the the terrifying pedestrian-launcher thing. I've posted the previously revealed (and extensively bananas) game footage which includes those things…

A Delirious Hour With Saints Row: The Third

It's hard to separate the reality of playing Saints Row: The Third from what I imagined playing Saints Row: The Third would be like. Because it's pretty much exactly the same. That is to say, it's what I remember playing Saints Row 2 was like - time, tall tales and fondness has seen me forget the busywork of the game and recall only the absurdities,…

Thanks, Killbane! Saints Row 3 Gets Serious

Let's kick off the day with a fresh look at Saints Row: The Third. There's not a huge dose of the series' trademark silliness on display here, but I suppose they've got to try and sell the game to stern-faced grumpy gamers, without a taste for the absurd, too. I do enjoy how the camera wobbles during the fisticuffs, and I'm looking forwards to having…

FAO Volition/THQ, Re. Saints Row Marketing

Dear Volition/THQ, I'm really looking forward to Saints Row: The Third. While I didn't much enjoy the original Saints Row, Saints Row 2 was one of the most entertaining open city games I've played, and by the looks of the trailers for the third game, it's heading even further in the direction of anarchic fun that so delighted me. So I really want to ask…

Saints Row 3 Loses Last Vestiges Of Sanity

I've got to admire Saint's Row: The Third's sheer determination to entirely depart the shores of normality, but at some point it's just going to start frightening people. They'll back away slowly, hands in the air, trying in too-calm voices with tell-tale quavers to say "Hey guy, hey. Hey. Why don't we all just take a deep breath and think about this, huh? It's alright.…

This Saints Row Trailer Is What I Don’t Even

You know how, with inbreeding, the longer it goes on for the more likely the symptoms are to show? As in, it might be invisible for one generation, but after several you're bound to start seeing webbed toes and crossed eyes? Yeah. On an entirely unrelated note, the new seven minute trailer for the third Saints Row game, Saints Row: The Third, is waiting for…

E3 2011 First Look: Saints Row The Third

If Saints Row 1 was a GTA "tribute", and Saints Row 2 was Volition discovering how they wanted to approach the genre for themselves, then Saints Row: The Third is the complete rejection of anything that originally influenced it. It is the most anarchic, vile, hilarious and puerile approach anyone has taken to a sandbox game. It's the silliest and foulest game of E3. It's…

A Ton Of Saints Row: The Third Screens

The first screenshots of Saints Row: The Third have appeared. Hip hip, poo-splatter. As the old saying goes. There's a LOT of them. Which is what we like to see. We also like to see tanks crushing police cars, insane parachute shoot-outs, and crazy neon fights in which a girl is hitting a masked wrestler type with a four foot purple dildo. Wait, no -…

Saints Row: The Third Footage, Lay-offs

While April 1st saw everyone oh-so hilariously lying about their products to create pointless confusion for gamers, it did also see a rather good sort-of-prank-but-actually-just-a-good-joke-even-if-it-weren't-International-Lying-Day-and-isn't-a-lie-either from Volition for Saints Row: The Third. Advertised as the first in-game footage, it's - well, it's exactly that. It's below. There's also some sadder news.

Volition Boss Says No More Duff PC Ports

There's some lovely comments from Volition's studio manager, Eric Barker, over on Eurogamer. Discussing why it's always worth developing for PC when creating cross platform titles, and how Volition will no longer be using external developers for their PC versions, he drops this gem of a comment that I'll be quoting for some time to come. "I don't think [piracy] is something at the forefront…
