‘Saints Row: The Third’, has a Full Plate this Month!

Story by: CritiKiL
You have to feel sorry for THQ and the Saints Row team, who were finally gearing up to release The Third, content in the knowledge that it has been years since GTA IV released, and that there hasn’t been any news on GTA V. But just as THQ got their marketing campaign geared up to take on Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3, Rockstar decided to spoil the party. Now, it looks like the publisher doesn’t want to go down without a fight, and has begun an “anti-GTA” ad campaign. When searching for terms like GTA V or Grand Theft Auto V, you might see the following Google ad:

An 'Anti-GTA: 5' Ad, designed to thwart people into buying 'The Third' on Nov 15th...

The “Forget Grand Theft Auto” ad links directly to the mildly-NSFW Saints Row website, and urges gamers to favor their open world third person action sandbox game over Rockstar’s, presumably higher budget, open world third person action sandbox game. But is it enough? With Saints Row releasing on November 15th in the US and 18th in Europe, how badly do you think today’s Grand Theft Auto V trailer will affect the game’s sales? Let us know in the comments below.

Upcoming: Saints Row 3, GTA: 5’s Rival?

Story by: CritiKiL

This video trailer for Saints Row®: The Third™ (below), caught my attention, mainly because it’s like a supped up GTA (Grand Theft Auto) on crank or something. So I thought I’d do a quick review, but you MUST see the video! The game sports an Online Co-Op, and a ton of new weapons, vehicles, tanks, guns an even the ‘V-TOL’ (Vertical Take Off & Landing Jet)…at your disposal. Did I mention the ‘Apoca-Fist’, and that it has ‘skydiving missions’? Yea, skydiving gunplay, total Mayhem and Fun.

HipHopGamer talks about Saints Row®: The Third™ demo, at E3:
“…was more than just jaw dropping, the gameplay details are over the top and easily surpasses the fun you will experience in GTA4.”

Saints Row®: The Third™ gives you control of the Saints at the height of their power, and you live the life to show for it. Take a tank skydiving, call in a satellite-targeted airstrike on a Mexican wrestling gang, and defend yourself against a highly-trained military force using only a sex toy in the most outlandish gameplay scenarios ever seen. Strap it on…and have some Fun!

Saints Row®: The Third™, exposes itself on November 18th 2011 for the PS3, XBox and PC. IGN gives it a 7.5 or 8 on the rating but I’m gonna come out of my neutrality as a writer,  and go ahead and say that this game will run leaps and bounds over GTA: V whenever it does come out (no word yet as to GTV: 5’s release). IMO: I think it’s going to knock GTA: V out of it’s socks. Please comment, and let us know what you think about this upcoming game!
