Saints Row: The Third 'Cherished Memory' launches, flips and crashes in broken heap

Hey, remember that time in Saints Row: The Third when you totally juggled a dude in the air with exploding bullets, and then celebrated his horrific slaughter with a 'smack that ass' gesture in full public view? Of course not; the game isn't even out yet. Nevertheless, according to this Saints Row: The Third Cherished Memory trailer, murdering energy drink mascots will be one of most memorable activities available on the streets of Steelport.

THQ and Volition have been flaunting Saints Row: The Third's blissfully absurd gameplay for months. Heck, even its debut teaser trailer kicked the gaming community in the nuts back in March.Earlier this year, producer Greg Donovan told GR Volition had always planned to go balls-out with the next Saints Row game after gauging feedback from the first sequel, noting, “[Saints Row 2] was known for over-the-top gameplay. We saw that resonated well with players; we were like 'OK, we've got a mindmeld going here, we're in the same kind of level, and so we just wanted to blow out the entire over-the-top experience in Saints Row: The Third.”

If this latest taste has left you hungry for something a little more substantial, make sure to read our most recent hands-on perview.

Saints Row: The Third is scheduled to metaphorically slap PS3, Xbox 360 and PC asses on November 15 in North America, and November 18th in the UK.

    I hope you can still dress up as "Hot Dog Man" for moments of Mascot v Mascot violence. I don't really pre-order many games, but I didn't feel like I had much of a choice with SR3, it's too good not to.

    A gritty and realistic story? Deep and believable characters? Wrenching moral choices? A complex protagonist, struggling with his inner demons? F*ck that noise, I wanna bullet-juggle mascots while wearing a cowboy hat! GTA is dead, long live Saints Row!

    That is NOT a "Smack that Ass" gesture.

    Exactly what I was thinking. Apparently mister Bradford hasn't partaken of that sexual act.

    This sucks GR didn't beat G4 to this bit. Totally looking forward to playing SR3. As far as games go for this fall it's: ES: Skyrim SR3 Uncharted 3 of course there are more but those are the three on top of my want list

    One of my most anticipated games of the year.
  • Ultimadrago - October 6, 2011 1:11 p.m.

    I am really looking forward to this title. Want to get the Platinum edition, but not sure if I can trust the headset's potential quality to be sound.

    The one game I'm most looking forward to this year. Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of great games coming out soon, but SR 3 takes the cake for for me.
