Saints Row: The Third - the AWESOME button

To think we're only halfway through our week of exclusive Saints Row: the Third coverage. Today, we bring you a collection of insanely enjoyable action sequences, all of which occurred when we pressed the AWESOME button. Just think, if one button can do all this and there are all the other buttons besides, the fun factor in this game must be astronomical! (Warning - explicit content and Kanye West's 'Power' follow)


Are games like this desensitising us to violence, nudity and foul language? Is society about to collapse? Is this going straight to number one or what?

    As the article title suggests, this is AWESOME. Now, if only I had the money to buy it (only game I'm getting anytime soon seems to be Mass Effect 3 Collector Edition, but since I'm broke I can't really afford anything, so I'll just spend my time wishing and saving).

    Yeah, the quality is still total ass for me. But that's ok, as 99% of the time I just copy the title of the video and find it on youtube. I come to GR for the writing, not their video player.

    A week of "exclusive coverage". Gee, I wonder what kind of review score GR will give it.
  • BladedFalcon - November 9, 2011 7:43 a.m.

    They also gave free Sonic generations T-shirts and have adds of the game constantly, and still gave it just an 8. What's your point?
  • Viklandian - November 9, 2011 6:16 p.m.

    Yes, because their ads of Rise of Nightmares clearly indicate that Sega has bought... that 5/10 review. GR taketh the money with one hand and giveth the finger with the other.

    Someone at volition is a wrasseling fan. 7 more days.

    Video has been fixed! Twas a bug according to our video team. Should be HD now, depending on your connection.
  • BladedFalcon - November 9, 2011 5:48 a.m.

    Something which should NOT be depending upon one's connection >_> I appreciate you guys fixed this video. But i would appreciate it even more if you fixed the player.... Or jsut got rid of it, seriously.
  • Ampatent - November 9, 2011 6:30 a.m.

    You must be new here, BladedFalcon. This video player is about 10x better than the previous one GR used.
  • BladedFalcon - November 9, 2011 7:36 a.m.

    I'm not, and I am familiar with the previous one. Still doesn't make this new player any more forgivable if it's still sub-par. Just because you changed from being in a pit filled with sh*t to a pit filled with urine, doesn't mean you're in an ideal spot.
  • FauxFurry - November 9, 2011 5:32 a.m.

    Unfortunately, the Awesome Button does not work on Gamesradar's video player. I guess even its awesomeness has limits.
  • BladedFalcon - November 9, 2011 5:11 a.m.

    Gah, seriously, you can't see sh*t in this video >.< Not to sound like a broken record, but honestly GR, why don't you just put all your videos using the youtube player??? Do you guys even gain something by forcing people to use a player no one really likes?
  • cj12297 - November 9, 2011 6:06 a.m.

    Do you not remember the old one?
  • LittleSamson - November 9, 2011 6:28 a.m.

    Just because the old player was even worse doesn't mean they shouldn't fix the new one...
  • BladedFalcon - November 9, 2011 7:31 a.m.

    Yes, it was worse. Doesn't really make this one any more forgivable, specially considering that the YOUTUBE player, which is fairly standard, works leagues better than this one.

    youtube video reference is below v=jXUBf6gBeQQ
