If you can't find something fun and hilarious to do in SR3, I contend that you are simply not human.

Do not do an activity in the open world before it is introduced in the actual story mission. If you do, it has the nasty side effect of skipping all the character dialogue and cutscene when doing the actual mission with it. For example, Pierce will have a mission for you to be on Professor Genki's Super Ethical Reality Climax. Once you complete that mission it is okay to do any of the open world instance of the Professor Genki activity.

In single player, you have the choice to replay the final mission one time only and see the alternate ending. If you have only beaten it once with one ending and then coop you will lose your one chance to replay it.

Some of the challenges like 25 Gang Taunts or kill X Gang Specialists are exponentially harder if you wipe out the gangs first, so you may want to attempt those before clearing out the gangs.

NOTE: You can still do assassination targets even if you wipe out all the gang control beforehand. The game is smart enough to repopulate the area if you select the target. There is no way to be locked out of doing them and not getting 100%.


"Let's get something cleared up. If you object to the idea of someone being walloped with a giant comedy phallus, then Saints Row: The Third isn't going to be the game for you."

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.


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.

By this point, many of you have already seen our debut gameplay trailer, and more than likely, hit the play button a few extra times to watch the face of agony over and over. Our animation team here at Volition have some words to bring extra light as to what occurs in the trailer.

"The testicular assault is kind of a natural evolution of Saint's Row melee combat. I mean honestly, how many games are comfortable with their own sense of self that they can build an entire melee system around the comedic brilliance of a person taking a shot in the crotch?"

Meet the characters of Saints Row: The Third

Phillipe Loren

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 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

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 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.

The New City of Steelport




Some Sexy Steelport Wallpaper

Take a video tour of Saints Row's new city:

Designing Saints Row: The Third's New City:


* Players will be able to share their characters online with the Initiation Station:

* Triangular based character sliders


* 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.

"While it's by no means the most subtle weapon in your arsenal, this floppy phallus packs a mean punch when used as a melee weapon. The top of this sex toy seems to have a mind of its own, wobbling around in a disturbing display of physics."

* Weapon customization purchasable through earned XP

why shoot a gun when you can wear giant over-sized boxing gloves called "Apoca-fist" that instantly vaporize anyone you punch?

The New Weapons of Saints Row: The Third Article


Professor Genki's Super Ethical Reality Climax


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


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

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.


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!



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."

Signs point to an awesome PC port this time:

Info from Consoles article (French gaming magazine)

Consoles wrote:
* Philippe Loren has a french accent, thus making him a Walloon Belgian.
* 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.
* 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.
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.

* Calling in airstrikes is an ability you get early in the game

* A Saints Row 3DS game was announced at last year's E3 called Saints Row: Drive By but it has been officially cancelled.

* No Multiplayer for Saints Row: The Third (only coop and single player)

    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.

    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!

    Saints Row 2 Cheat and Unlocks


    Everything you ever wanted to know about being a dirty filthy cheater who's never gonna prosper.

    (Some cheats are hilarious stupid fun and should absolutely be tried out.)

    NOTE: Cheats will flag your save and cause you grief in coop since it will alert the other player and flag his save too causing problems. Avoid the headaches by doing the following:

    1. Enter all cheats into your cell phone by dialing the numbers below. This will not activate them or flag the save, but merely make them available for you within the cheat menu.

    2. Enter the following cheats AND ACTIVATE THEM. They are actually promo codes from preordering from Gamestop and will not flag the save (even though you activate them under the cheats menu):
    #4976 Gyro Daddy (doesn't flag current game as cheated)
    #728237 Destroy (doesn't flag current game as cheated)
    #7266837 Peewee (doesn't flag current game as cheated)

    3. Save your game. As long as you haven't activated any cheats in the cheat menu (besides the promo vehicles) it will not be a cheat flagged save.

    4. Create a NEW save for your current character and have some fun messing around with low gravity, 4x explosions, drunk pedestrians, and anything else that sounds fun by activating the cheats in the cheat menu.

    Saints Row 2 Neat Stuff

    Here are some of the neat things you may not know about the game.
    * Stand on the hood or roof of a car and press your enter vehicle key/button. You will be instantly teleported inside rather than walking around it to the door.

    * Drive up walls with motorcycles by driving directly at the wall. Do a wheelie so that both tires are on the wall and press up and hit the gas. Easiest to do on the Prototype motorcycle.

    * Pressing your alternate attack while holding a hostage will execute them. If unarmed, you will snap their neck.

    * Idle animations: Leave your controller alone, and the player character will do different animations depending on what he's near. These include fishing, dancing, lifting weights, leaning against a wall and smoking, snapping pictures, and kneeling down and praying at graves.

    * Your character will sing along with certain music on the radio in your car
    A-ha - Take on Me: All characters
    Europe - The Final countdown: Male voice 1
    Night Ranger - Sister Christian: Male Voice 2
    Simple Minds - Don't You Forget About Me: Male Voice 3
    Tears for Fears - Everybody Wants to Rule the World: Female Voice 1
    Duran Duran - The Reflex: Female Voice 2
    Men at Work - Land Down Under: Female Voice 3

    * If you buy all the stores in a chain, your face will show up on their Billboards as the new owner in whatever outfit you had on when first loading up the save.

    Almost 100% done with all of the side activities. The last one I have to do is the Hard Trail Blazing (with the Toad). 12 check points, and the Toad drives like shit, not to mention sometimes I get 10 bonus seconds, and sometimes I get 2. I know I have to ram cars/people to get more points, or get lucky with those little fires on the ground, but finding the optimal route AND driving carefully enough is really wearing me down.

    I'm also 25/26 Survival missions. I just started Act 3, and I'm not sure if I should've already gotten that last one yet, or if it will happen near the end of the game, like the final 2 Assassination missions.

    I mean, theres a specific point where saints row universe actually collides with red faction. they have said that ultor is the same in both universes. so we could actually see saints in space.

    what if in a new red faction game you go back in time to warn people about what happens. that overlaps into a saints game where you decide to turn mars into the new vegas, and control said city.

    Fired this up briefly to check it out last night but will wait to properly play it until I can do co-op with a buddy. Am I going nuts or does the character creator have no clothing options? I didn't pre-order so I couldn't play with the demo creator but I saw no options for clothing when I hit the character creation part of the first mission.

    Correct. If you do the Initiation Station, you have access to about 80% of the clothing in the game. If you don't, then you have a "Default" set and have to buy your duds from the stores.

    In fact, if you download your character, you don't technically own the clothes you are wearing, so you could potentially lose them if you don't save the wardrobe and change your duds. Almost happened to me a couple of times, because my boss went through the game in a dress.

    So, any reliable method of getting the survival missions to pop? It's the last challenge I have to finish, and just running around waiting for those random cell phone calls isn't something I want to start doing. Are they tied to locations? Like, do I have to run around a specific area to trigger a call? And if I finish it, will I never get another call in that region? Not having a little tracker is incredibly annoying, especially since every other collectible/mission/property is tagged on the map at least superficially so completing them doesn't feel as grindy as other sandbox games do.

  • Options
    heenatoheenato Alice Leywind Registered User regular
    Oh man. I am so close to finishing the challenges...

    well, okay. I have like 20 left, but all of them are ALMOST done. It helps that I already finished all the gang ones, so I don't have to worry about those, and can just 100% the rest of the game in the meantime, doing the challenges when I get the chance.

    Distance traveled was the worst... mainly because I had to do it twice.

    2nd time, I just hopped in a VTOL and kept flying across the city till it auto turned me and I flew back the other way.

    I don't REALLY see how bad distance traveled can be. I'm at 2 million miles, so I only have another 500K to go, and I've still got to do all the activities, find all the collectables, and finish the rest of the challenges. That should be quite enough for that last stretch.

    Well, the first time I got it, I got it naturally. But I fucked myself out of the gang releated challenges, so I started a new game, ran through the story missions, but didn't worry about activities or collectables. I just ground out challenges. Distance traveled was the final one I had to complete, and after all the story missions and grinding out the rest of the challenges I was only at 1,300,000 feet or miles or whatever.

    Playing the game normally and I always get 2,000,000 pretty easy, it's just that last bit that needs to be done out some. But flying around usually works wonders for that as planes tend to get miles very well.
