Volition has released seven minutes of Saints Row: The Third gameplay heaven. Well, it's heaven if you have an affinity for blasting pedestrians out of man cannons, smacking civilians with giant purple dildos, committing crimes in a furry suit, blowing up crap with a tank or calling in unnecessary air strikes. If not, this could very well be taken as seven minutes of offensive, juvenile, gameplay demo hell, but that doesn't have as nice a ring to it.
The beauty of the Saints Row series is it is fully expected to be balls-out ridiculous, giving it the freedom to experiment with new and crazy gameplay elements without fear of blowback from fans. In fact, I imagine Volition is one of the only studios where an employee can look a colleague in the eye and say: “I cannot wait to beat someone to death with that massive purple dildo” , without being escorted from the premises. Seriously, I can tell you from experience that crap doesn't fly in a normal office setting.
Saints Row: The Third is on track to offend numerous parent groups and news organizations on November 15th in North America, and November 18th in the UK.
