We’ve already promoted the
hyper-colorful loveliness that is Saints Row: The Third's Professor Genki,
the over-the-top tribute to Japanese game show cruelty. We love his giant cat
head, his mind-control octopus gun, and his canon with human ammo. But what
about his day job, the deadly game show Professor Genki’s Super Ethical Reality
Climax? This new trailer functions as both a commercial for the show and preview
of the player missions you’ll murder your way through in the game.
As you can see (unless the
warning of flashing light caused you to ignore the footage), Professor Genki’s
show is a bit more like Saw than X-Factor, as you escape death traps and shoot
costumed degenerates while running for your life. We just hope Genki survives
the violent retribution the Saints will no doubt give him. That cat-headed man
has sequel potential written all over him. Or how about a spin-off?
