With people cannons, weaponized dildos, and the hyper Dr. Genki, we knew Saints Row: The Third is angling to be the most ridiculous game that’s ever been. The game has shown its wild side in spiffy, cinematic trailers and we've written in-depth previews on the subject, though that might not have been proof enough for our readers that the game is as nuts as we say it is. This long chunk of gameplay showing a mission that starts with jumping out of an airplane and then amps up the absurdity might change your mind. Watch…
The video shows the second mission of the game titled “Freefalling,” as hostile negotiations between the evil Syndicate and the slightly less evil Saints break down in a deadly shootout. That follows to jumping out of a plane, said plane trying to ram the Saints, said Saint diving through the plane, then a midair gun fight as the killers hurtle toward the city. If this is where the game begins, just how far will it goes when it hits stores this November?
