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!

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?

    Video quality isn't that great so I couldn't see a thing! Just me or the same for everyone else?

    Same thing for me. Horrible pixelated vomit. Something's really wrong with GR's embedded videos, cos this isn't the first time I'm having problems with them.

    I just wish that, for all these embedded videos, the quality could be reversed between the actual video and the adverts preceding them. I have an admittedly slow internet conenction, but I would still rather wait 10 minutes for a good quality game video, rather than wait 10 minutes for a HD quality advert to load only to be presented with a bizarre pixelated mess of a game video.

    ...in the bright side, I do look forward to making copious use of the "awesome button".

    what an odd surprise Saints row 3 is releasing on ps1, oh wait the video quality is just so atrocious it looks like a ps1 game. Other than that gripe the trailer looks as crazy as ever

    Gonna have to wait for this one to upload to YouTube because I can't see a damn thing...

    Posting just to echo the comments already here. I actually got my internet connection upgraded yesterday and now the videos are of a far worse quality. Sod's law. Please just provide alternate links to YouTube or something.

    Ew. Yes. The poo filter appears to be fully engaged. We'll get a better one sorted as soon as poss.

    youtube video reference is below v=jXUBf6gBeQQ

    Thanks dude, I was wondering what this video was supposed to look like
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • GR_JustinTowell - November 9, 2011 5:41 a.m.

    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.

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