If Saints Row: The Third’s goal is to be the craziest game of all time, it’s making a good case for itself. With news of dildo attacks, personal jets, lucha libre moves, and human catapults, this sequel looks to be the most insane entry yet. But things went to a whole other level today with news of the game’s preorder bonus. Just watch the trailer for Professor Genki's Hyper Ordinary Preorder Pack and try to soak it all in (though try not to have a seizure)…
As THQ describes it, this bonus is tied to the in-game reality show Professor Genki’s Super Ethical Reality Climax, which puts players through deadly games including Monkey Money Grab, and Professor Genki’s Super Sparkle Lab. By preordering you get exclusive items that feature Genki’s likeness, including Professor Genki's Leisure Stunt Suit (giant cat head included), Professor Genki’s Super Ballistic Man-a-pult, which gives a special paint job to one of the game’s most exciting new vehicles, and Professor Genki’s "Octopuss" Cannon, a rocket launcher that shoots a god damn octopus at your face!
We’ve grown pretty accustomed to preorder bonuses coming with every game these days, but if tehy all included something like a freaking octopus cannon, we’d pay more attention to these types of things. Saints Row: The Third comes out this fall.
