Saints Row: The Third is the sequel to one of the most beloved sandbox games of all right thinking gamers who love fun; Saints Row 2. Saints Row 2 featured the very best drop in drop out coop in the genre, and the missions, activities, and cutsomization could all be done seamlessly with a friend. This new game in the series is coming out for the 2011 holidays, 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 to steal them, rc control devices, 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.

Meet the characters of Saints Row: The Third
Phillipe Loren

main.php?cmd=imageorig&var1=SR3%2FPhillipe-Loren-610.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 f--- with.”

Killbane

main.php?cmd=imageorig&var1=SR3%2Fkillbane0315-610.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

main.php?cmd=imageorig&var1=SR3%2FMatt-Miller-610.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

main.php?cmd=imageorig&var1=SR3%2FZimos0314-610.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 protégés, 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.

Gentlemen of the Row is our Steam group for coordinating coop and strong arm games for this game on. Just post in this thread with your Steam ID, or PM me here or on Steam for an invite:
http://steamcommunity.com/groups/gentlemenoftherow

So, gather around and listen why Saint's Row 2 is the gold standard of customizable sociopathic 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.

PERFORMANCE AND TROUBLESHOOTING:

The Saints Row 2 PC FAQ I wrote up for the Steam forums has everything you need to know to troubleshoot and fix performance issues, crashing bugs, and fixing the dreaded Windows 7 speedup bug:

http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1715922

*****************************
MULTIPLAYER:
Any type of multiplayer is usually coordinated in the Gentlemen of the Row Steam group chat. There are usually some people there more than happy to have someone to coop or multi with, or soon will be.

Coop is limited to 2 players. One person hosts a game and the other joins. It is drop in and drop out, so anything you do (clothes, missions, etc) will be saved independently for each character. Yes, you can drop in, shoot up some stuff with a buddy and do a mission or two, and drop out seamlessly with any progression saved.

Gangsta Brawl multiplayer is plain vanilla 4 minute deathmatch modes for up to 8 players. Strong Arm is team based multiplayer also supporting 8. This mode take place in a smaller section of the city and throws activities at you (Racing, Insurance Fraud, Hitman) with Red and Blue team competing to earn the most money. It's free form where you're also running around the city causing trouble during and between activities. Each match is about 30 minutes. Also, make sure to setup your character under the Multiplayer/Customize menu to import your personal character from a save. Otherwise you will just get a random one.

Strong Arm Tutorial: All players (hosts and clients) for both coop and other multi will need to open/forward port 4200 UDP and TCP on their router and Windows firewall. One of the symptoms of a closed port 4200 is if you can see available coop games, but they time out when you try to connect to them. Another symptom is if you join a mutiplayer lobby and are almost immediately disconnected.

*****************************
CHEATS
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.

    It is a terrible port, and if you have access to a 360 then get it for console. But I think the pure awesome of the game itself outweighs the port issues if you have a decent rig and a controller. Plus, it's only $5. The other PA'ers playing now all have similar specs and run it just fine.

    My 360 red-ringed not too long ago and one of the things that bummed me out the most was not being able to play SR2 anymore. For five bucks, this is an easy decision to make.

    The game is 100% playable, even with the shitty port. And after the patch I had zero bugs.
    IT'S DEFINITELY WORTH 5 BUCKS.

    I'm willing to forgive a lot of shittiness for five bucks, because if it turns out to suck it's cost me no more than a burger and fries with a shake for dessert, and will satisfy me for a lot longer.

    If it doesn't suck, all the better; and the fact that PAers play this game and have a large thread about it makes me go you know what, fuck it.

    Also I'm a sucker for co-op.

    Coop is really damn cool, you can play any part of the game with it, and it really helps on several higher level activities (which unlock lots of good stuff like best guns and infinite ammo. And it all gets saved on the host's character.

    Minor correction. Anything you do (missions, clothes, etc) gets saved on to each character independently, not just the host.

    actually those are the tamest things you can do around Stillwater. We do stuff that is a hell lot crazier, explodier and violentier.

    I mean shit drive-bys are like kiddy's play in that city. I'm talking about jacking sewage truck and painting the town with shit. Endless shit.
    And making "throw people under cars" competitions.

    This looked absolutely horrible on my pc. We're talking early-generation PS2 game here... worse, even. And it's not because my pc wasn't capable, because it has a Core 2 Duo E8400, 8GB PC6400, and a Radeon 4870 1GB. It just looked like muck, on the highest visual settings. It also controlled really, really badly. I am never, ever going back to this game.

    ...and I thought of how all those people died, and what a good death that is. That nobody can blame you for it, because everyone else died along with you, and it is the fault of none, save those who did the killing.

    I think my new favorite way to pass the time in SR2 is doing skeet shooting with pedestrians. Player A takes a pedestrian hostage on top of a ledge or building. Player B yells "PULL!" and player A throws hostage off the building while Player B shoots him on the way down. Oh, the stupid wonderful fun you can make for yourselves.

    I also now have a habit of referring to pedestrians as "clay pigeons." :D

    The Advanced technique is blowing up a car so that it's on fire. Then throwing the pedestrian through the flames so that he catches fire on his way sailing over and into more oncoming traffic. Then it's Miller time.

    Unfortunately coop is 2 player only. Hopefully we get more in SR3.

    And the story is the least important thing in the game. Some gangsta thugs took over the city in SR1, then some boat blew up and then you wake up in prison in SR2, and you lost everything. That's all you need to know.

    The key you get from D2D has been confirmed to work both with their download, and also by just punching it into Steam.

    So i can get this off steam for 5 dollars instead of D2D? I dont understand and would really rather use steam if I can.

    You can buy it for $5 through D2D and then activate it on Steam using the serial key they give you, bypassing the D2D downloader. But you still have to buy it on the D2D site.

    there is the big slowdown from the streaming new areas when you drive around too fast. That's kinda hard to get rid off. But not game breaking. Other kinds of slowdown can be fixed by turning off stuff like motion blur.

    Just a reminder to to post your Steam ID if you do pick this up and I'll send an invite to the Saint's Row 2 PA group. You can also stop by the steam group chat or PM me here or on Steam.
