The weapons of Saints Row: The Third

Saints Row: The Third is not a shy and retiring game. It's all about huge explosions, shocking pink thongs and chainsaw killings. Want to see what we mean? Then step right this way. Oh, but even more so than yesterday, this video is NOT suitable for under-18s, so click away if you are. Don't be sad, you wouldn't have liked it anyway. Yeah, it's rubbish. No, seriously, you're not missing anything... *beckons in everyone else and closes the door*

Admittedly, if you're put off by the sight of tan lines, purple rubber batons (sure, that's what they are) and pixellated nudity then you're probably not going to like Saints Row: The Third. Everyone else - this is going to be right up your seedy back alley. So to speak.

    Appropriately ethical music in that trailer :) One of my favourite memories of the whole of the Saints Row is chasing people, naked, with a baseball bat while playing "The Duck Song" (can't remember if it was SR1 or 2). Hopefully they have some more wacky tunes to go along with the wacky beatings that are going to be dished out.

    Wow the weapon selection looks pretty awsome.

    I wish the squid gun and man-a-pult weren't dlc. I buy my games from a small retailer and they don't get the pre-order bonuses

    All in all, a decent selection of weapons. I'm still holding out hope for a Fleshlight Saber in DLC.

    Man, those kids outside sure are missing the good stuff! Maybe they'll be old enough when Saints Row 4 releases...

    You can show sawing a man in half, but god forbid there be non-pixelated nipples.

    Maybe because milk dispensing organs are the ultimate weapon? Now I'd like to see weaponized nipples for DLC weapons now.

    ETHICAL! Good thing I preordered, the amount of mayhem and insanity is just perfect. Too bad we can't import our character from SR2.

    The character creator in SR3 is actually slightly worse in several ways. Your characters face has to be completely symmetrical, while the previous game allowed you to angle and tilt features. I managed to get a fantastic sneer out of my guy doing that, raising his top lip at the side slightly and making one eye squint a little more than the other. Most realistic character I'd ever made in a game and I hoped I'd be able to repeat it... but alas...

    I'd say that the wider variety of skin colors, eye types and the 'sex appeal' slider offset those losses rather nicely, plus the improved animation,which is to say any animation at all, on the hair and clothing further softens the blow. I personally managed to get some good sneers by curling the upper lip sides upward, yet smirks prove elusive.
