What is Saints Row: The Third?

Saints Row: The Third is the upcoming sequel in one of the most beloved sandbox series of all right thinking gamers everywhere who love fun. This brand new entry is dated for release on November 15, 2011 for 360, PS3, and PC, and amps up the action and insanity with a focus on the single player and coop experience, dropping the multiplayer component of the previous two games. New weapon customization, a new city called Steelport, an awesome button to missile dropkick into cars, rc control devices, airstrikes, a mexican wrestling gang, detailed gang customizing including mix and match, an autotune pimp, rickshaws, and a gimp suit are all signs that point towards Saints Row: The Third being the sandbox game of the decade.
“Saints Row: The Third puts you on top of the world, right at the beginning of the game, with all the perks that go along with being the head of an elite criminal organization,” said Danny Bilson, THQ Executive Vice President, Core Games. “There’s no delivering pizza, no shuttling family members about in a long series of taxi missions. Instead, you take all the power of the Third Street Saints and you take the world by storm.”

Years after taking Stilwater for their own, the Third Street Saints have evolved from street gang to household brand name, with Saints sneakers, Saints energy drinks and Johnny Gat bobble head dolls all available at a store near you. The Saints are kings of Stilwater, but their celebrity status has not gone unnoticed. The Syndicate, a legendary criminal fraternity with pawns in play all over the globe, has turned its eye on the Saints and demands tribute. Refusing to kneel to the Syndicate, you take the fight to a new city, playing out the most outlandish gameplay scenarios ever seen. Strap it on.

Meet the characters of Saints Row: The Third

Phillipe Loren

phillipeloren610.jpg
Phillipe Loren is the leader of the Syndicate, in particular the gang called the Morning Star, says Steve Jaros, lead writer of Saints Row: The Third. He's kind of like a Bond villain. He's statuesque and poised and elegant, and he's a total gentleman. He's not a fop, he's not effeminate, and he's not going to play to that European stereotype. He's coldly logical and dangerous and very savvy.

Phillipe is the main antagonist in the game, essentially kicking off the game's story by kidnapping the player character, Johnny Gat, and Shaundi after a botched bank robbery. The game's first mission takes place in Phillipe's jet, as the player blasts his way out of the aircraft and down into Steelport.

It turns out that the player has made a powerful enemy in Phillipe, who's far more powerful than the street level thugs that littered Stilwater. He's made a killing being an international arms dealer. He's pretty much the leader of the criminal fraternity in Steelport. He calls all the shots, he directs everybody, he's the guy that you just don't want to fuck with.

Killbane

killbane0315610.jpg
Killbane wrote:
The wrestling-masked Luchadores are one of the more flamboyant criminal organizations in Steelport, so it's only appropriate that the gang is led by someone equally peculiar. Killbane is a former professional wrestler who also founded the Luchadors with his tag-team partner, Angel. Killbane became jealous of his partner's success, which led him to publicly unmask and shame his former friend. Eventually, Killbane was banished to Mexico after he killed an opponent in the ring. That exile didn't last, and the grappler is back and running his group.

He's obsessed with his legacy and is a total fame ***, says Steve Jaros, lead writer on Saints Row: The Third. In some ways, he's like a dark mirror to the player.

Killbane's given name is Eddie Pryor, but he doesn't respond to that moniker. His mask is a constant presence, whether he's on the streets, being interviewed on television, or attending a Syndicate board meeting. He's always embracing that luchadore spirit and never wants to let it go, says Jaros, adding that while Killbane might look a little clownish he's not someone to be taken lightly. He's very volatile. He can be charming and debonair one moment and then just snap off and break your neck.

And what of Angel? He's still dealing with the disgrace of being unmasked, but he'll prove to be a helpful ally to the player as he navigates the unfamiliar streets of Steelport.

Matt Miller

mattmiller610.jpg
Even though Steelport is a city where groups of wrestling-masked gangsters stalk corners without anyone giving it a second thought, don’t assume all of the city’s crime involves ostentatious displays of costuming, rocket launchers, or remote-controlled drones. Sometimes, even the world of Saints Row calls for subtlety.

Matt Miller is the Syndicate's go-to guy for those instances. As leader of the Deckers, Miller (no relation) is in charge of the city's cybercrime. As with a lot of folks bolstered by the anonymity of the Internet, Miller is all swagger when he's at his keyboard. Take him out of his element, and it's another story. The thing that's interesting about him is that when he's by himself he thinks that he's god, says Steve Jaros, the game's lead writer. He's super cocky and kind of obnoxious and is very self-assured in what he does. However, when he's around Killbane or Phillipe, he's like a 15-year-old kid sitting at the big kid table.

Even if he does clam up during those meetings, Phillipe and the rest of the Syndicate appreciate his contributions. It's always good to have someone smart in your corner, particularly when it's so potentially lucrative.

Zimos

zimos0314610.jpg
Zimos wrote:
As Steelport's oldest pimp, Zimos is a fixture in the criminal ecosystem. At first, the Syndicate tolerates the eccentric character, and he even forges a friendship with Phillipe Loren's proteges, Viola and Kiki DeWynter. The relationship goes south for as-yet-unknown reasons, and Zimos finds himself locked away in the basement of one of the Syndicate's human trafficking hubs.

After being rescued by the player, the temporarily gimp-suited Zimos becomes an important ally. His ties to the criminal underworld are critical in the player's early days in Steelport, and he's a great guide to the city. In general, he's kind of like the lovable granddad of the Saints, says lead writer Steve Jaros. He's too old to care, he has a lot of swagger. Pretty much he's seen it all, he's done it all, and he's too cool to be scared or offended.

In addition to the role of de facto tour guide, Zimos provides plenty of comic relief. He has had a tracheotomy, though that hasn't stopped him from smoking through the subsequent hole in his throat. He speaks using an electronic voice box, which has been autotuned. In other words, everything he says sounds like it was plucked from a T-Pain song. Stay classy, Saints Row.

* You can paint your character green, blue, gold, silver, etc.

* Sex Appeal slider

* You will not be able to import your SR2 character into SR3, since the new engine is not compatible.

The New Weapons of Saints Row: The Third Article
http://www.gameinformer.com/b/features/archive/2011/03/09/the-weapons-of-saints-row-the-third.aspx


Activities

Professor Genki's Super Ethical Reality Climax

genki610jpg610x0.jpg

This activity has been described as a cross between a crazy Japanese gameshow and The Running Man. Like the awesome Schwarzenegger movie, this show pits several sociopaths against each other in a fight to the death. Weapon drops and fire traps ensure bloodshed, and the hyperactive Japanese announcers will be jabbering away throughout. Expect onscreen graphics like Japanese text and oddities similar to Mortal Kombat II’s “Toasty guy” as you murder the competition.

Tank Mayhem

sspreview5597sr304tankc.jpg

Tank Mayhem places you in a tank instead of behind the sights of an assault rifle or RPG launcher. Various high-value targets will appear while you’re going all Goldeneye on the city, including a parade of strippers. Send a shell their way or get them tangled in your treads, and you’ll be raking in the cash and respect.

Guardian Angel

Your buddy Angel hates the Syndicate just as much as you do, and he wants to make sure you’re tough enough to take them on. In this activity, he forces you to drive a car around while a tiger sits in the backseat. Get into a fender bender or run into a stop sign, and he’ll start mauling you. It’s a definite test of your driving ability, but a co-op partner can sit in the backseat and try to tame the tiger if things get too tough.


Insurance Fraud and Trail Blazing are returning. Septic Avenger, Fight Club, and FUZZ are sadly not.


The Over the Top Activities of Saints Row: The Third
http://www.gameinformer.com/b/features/archive/2011/03/21/the-over-the-top-activities-of-saints-row-the-third.aspx


Vehicles
the core mechanic of the driving experience has been completely overhauled. Car handling is a lot more fast, fluid and fun, and leaves you open to doing some insane stunts in the open-world setting.

There are some outlandish cars, too, such as one that features the giant head of Johnny Gat on the hood smoking a cigarette that shoots out flames. Then there's Professor Genki’s Super Ballistic Manapult, which features a giant cannon on the roof that can suck up people (or even yourself) and then shoot them out.

saintsrowthethird201106.jpg

The coolest air vehicle was the Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) Jet, which can seamlessly switch from hover to jet mode in an instant. It also lets you shoot missiles and laser beams. LASER BEAMS!

saintsrowthethird201106.jpg

http://www.destructoid.com/preview-saints-row-the-third-201736.phtml#ext


Other Stuff
"The LB button acts as a sprint button as well as a modifier. Volition refers to it as the "awesome button" because it amplifies any action you do. In the case of carjacking, this shortens the process down to a missile drop kick into the driver's seat. Sprint at the car from the side and you'll break through the window, sending the driver flying out the opposite door."

* Philippe Loren has a french accent, thus making him a Walloon Belgian.
* The graphic engine is "finally worthy of next-gen consoles".
* One of the influences for Steelport is the alternate Hill Valley from Back to the Future 2. This is so awesome.
* Between 15 and 20% of the missions don't happen on the main map, but on "extern places", like the first mission in Loren's jet. Some mini-games will be as well. This allow for missions very differents from what this genre of games usually delivers, say Greg.
* QTE Fights will be present, the first fight on the jet will be played this way.
* The cars are much better to handle than the SR2 cars. A small blur effect will appear when you accelerate.
* One new screenshot : The MC is robbing a gunsmith. You can see a lot of guns, like the pistol the MC uses (it looks a lot like a Strayer Voigt Infinity with a compensator), and guns on the shelves : old AK47, newer (all black) AK 103, some kind of Barrett, M4, on an unknown sniper rifle on the counter.
* When asked if a Saints Row 4 is already on the way, Greg responds "If there is a SR4, we would probably use the same technology The Third uses, because we are very happy with it."
* There is a nuclear plant, and it seems it is a HQ you will have to conquer.
* Some ideas, abandoned because of a lack of time during the creation of SR2, will appear in SR3.
* No cover system. They want a fast, fluid, fun combat system.
* When asked if Steelport is bigger than Stillwater, Greg's reponse is "I don't know !". They are looking for a ideal size in terms of gameplay. "Maybe the same size, minus the underground places".
* Volition is very impatient to unveil the photo and video tools, to offer to the players the possibility to share their fun moments, but they can't talk about it for the moment.
In previous Saints Row games, the player would be able to approach each of the three rival gangs along separate storylines that ultimately culminated into a final conclusion. In The Third, the storylines between the three gangs are interconnected, and decisions that the player makes in dealing with one faction may alter the behavior of the other factions towards the player or missions that may be available later. The developers have focused on developing an open-ended storyline; the majority of storyline missions can be completed in multiple ways, and the decisions that the player makes on these missions will ultimately affect the game's ending.

    The Original Saints Row

    Saints Row was only released on Xbox 360.

    Saints Row multiplayer is widely regarded as the best in the series with modes like Protect the Pimp and Blinged out Ride. It did not have coop. Unfortunately, Volition has taken down the servers for the original game.

    The missions and story in the original Saints Row are still quite fun to play, if a bit unforgiving. The activities, customization, and world itself are sorely lacking after playing the drastically improved sequel Saints Row 2.


    Is Saints Row worth playing or should you skip to the much better sequel Saints Row 2?

    You really do not need to play the first game before starting the second. Saints Row 2 gets you up to speed on the story in the opening cutscene, and feels like a clean slate letting you create a character from scratch. If you have a 360, the original is worth playing mainly just to see the story and the history of characters like Troy, Donnie, Lynn, and Julius.


    About Saints Row 2
    Klash wrote:
    There I was, a purple mohawked, glittery, naked, tattooed man with a pirate hook, taking hostages in an underground mall. Story of my life, really.

    Gather around the forum campfire and listen up why Saint's Row 2 is the gold standard of customizable sociopath sandbox fun.

    Saint's Row 2 is a sandbox-style action-adventure video game in which you play the leader of a street gang known as the 3rd Street Saints. You awaken from a trauma-induced coma after a betrayal and staged yacht explosion five years ago at the end of the first game. After escaping from prison, your goal is to take on the gangs who currently control the city of Stilwater in attempt to regain your territory. The game is composed of elements from third-person shooters and driving games in open world gameplay. The main game can be played through in single-player or through online co-operative play with seamless drop in, drop out gameplay. The game also contains competitive multiplayer modes such as Strong Arm and Gangsta Brawl supporting up to 16 players.

    Since its release, Saints Row 2 has been generally praised by critics and fans alike and has received generally positive reviews. The game went on to gain numerous awards, including best freeplay game of 2008 by IGN and was given several mentions as one of the best games of 2008.

    It is also stupid crazy awesome on an atomic scale with the number of things you can do in the game. It is the most fun I have ever had in a videogame in my entire life. The biggest testament to Saints Row 2 is that we are still playing it online coop after a year and a half!

    i regret not holding onto SR2 longer, it was fun and zany. here's hoping this one has a slightly higher level of polish. i want basically co-op just cause 2, and this will be the next best thing.

    I wish the Ronin had been saved for SR3. I can imagine the samurai duels with that huge blado.

    So... in all those promotional shots at the end of the OP the male Boss is shooting a number of reasonably sensible guns, but in the one shot of the female Boss she's swinging around a giant purple dildo-sword.

    I wonder if this means something.

    I'm going to take a wild guess and hypothesize that Volition's marketing department didn't want to show a male character swinging it at another male character for fear it might trigger a homophobic reaction in some idiots who would then label the game as "teh gay" or something.

    I would truly love to believe that we live in a world that wouldn't give a shit about that kind of thing anymore, but, you know, gamers.

    EDIT:
    I suppose it could also be misconstrued as sexual violence against women if it was a male character swinging it at a female. What a weird world we live in.

    Actually, I was wrong. There is a shot in there of a female Boss shooting an assault rifle or something at a luchador.

    But anyway, how is a woman using an obvious symbol of masculine virility to beat up a muscleman any less bad than one man beating another man with it? :P

    You just answered yourself. :winky:

    Gotta say, as someone who missed out on the first 2 saints rows I am really looking forward to this game.

    It's not. It's all pretty much the same to me. i.e. just played for laughs.

    I just think there is a certain stigma attached to something like that, and it wouldn't be so easily accepted by some people. I was really just trying to think like someone in Marketing would. Ugh... Marketing... Now I feel dirty. :lol:

    Holy Crap, a new thread?

    Did we fill the last one up with too many horrors?

    This one looks too clean right now. When I return from work, I shall rectify that. Expect many, many monstrosities.

    Skyrim will be cheaper later, and won't be worthwhile until enough mods are out fixing the gameplay systems.

    While I agree, I do think the release will hurt sales.

    I know it will never happen, but I'd love the option to sex up Shaundi. She's just so hot now.

    I'm going to paraphrase my response:

    "OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD! THAT WAS AWESOME! EEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!"

    It's possible that I had a stupid grin on my face as well. I may or may not have been saying the above in a pitch above "dog whistle" and I may or may not have buckled at the knees.

    Hint: I did.

    We don't even care... whether we care or not...

    I'm still reeling from that. I didn't expect anything until next week.

    Also, Gat bullet dodge FOR THE FUCKING WIN.

    Wait, did he dodge it? I thought he totally got hit in the shoulder, that's why he dropped. Then he realized there was more murderin' to do, so he got back up to kill some redshirts.

    And I just realized that the enemy are literal redshirts. Gonna kill so many.

    Well, I guess I'll just have to watch it again...

    And maybe a few more times. You know, just to be sure. :D

    Notice how near the end of the trailer, Loren and the twins join the Saints in facing down the fighters on the roof.

    Makes me wonder if it's possible to [strike]team up[/strike] negotiate a highly temporary truce with the Syndicate at some point.

    I'm quite looking forward to seeing what unholy terrors you and Idol unleash in SR3.

    Goddamn, that trailer. I've watched it 5 times already and I keep finding new things to love about it.

    I take it from Shaundi's missing dreads that she might be showering regularly now.

    More or less Ultor Security, but with higher tek gear. And more badass, Thoose planes look like they are from Just Cause 2
