Saints Row IV Trailer Promises Your Independence Day

Saints Row IV Trailer Promises Your Independence Day


Keith David is here to free the whole f*ckin' planet from anal-probing aliens.

Bill Whatshisface gave a pretty stirring speech in Independence Day, but when it comes to throwing off the yoke of evil oppressors from beyond the moon, I'll give my vote to Admiral Anderson any day. Admiral Anderson being Keith David, of course, he of the booming voice and commanding presence, who never met an alien invasion he wasn't willing to punch in the junk.

I confess that I've never actually played a Saints Row game because the series always struck me as a hyper-absurd Grand Theft Auto knock-off, but the promos for Saints Row IV - including this one - really have my attention. It's as if they've gone so far into the realm of the ridiculous that they've managed to bend the space-time continuum back into itself, transmuting ultra-stupid into mega-awesome. Or something like that.

All I know for sure is that when it comes time to lay the biggest smackdown in the history of mankind, there's no-one I'd rather have at the wheel than Keith David. Hopefully with his sunglasses on. Saints Row IV is being developed for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, and hits the shelves on August 20.

Okay, that text based segment from Saints Row 3 was hilarious. Look forward to seeing what they do with this one.

Sorry Volition; no Rebecca Sanabria as female voice 3, no purchase from me. Her performance has practically defined my experience of the series since the second installment.

Here's me thinking that the independence day speech was stupid and deliberately camp. I'm guessing that SR has now become Duke Nukem without the personality.

so..... better than Duke Nukem Forever?

at least that is a step up from Saint's Row 3....

OT: yusss.

As long as Kieth David gets some decent screen time in IV, then it should make up for a few things they will eventually do wrong in the game.

first being the non-existance of vs multiplayer.

I know it was pretty bad, but it was a nice diversion from doing the singleplayer for the fifth time in a row.

anyone else thought "glad Kinzie is getting laid in this game" XD

yeah sue me i have a soft spot for nerd girls :P

I think the Saints really do have a thing for zombies, Julius died two games ago.

Come to think of it, we'll almost no doubt be throwing them, perhaps by way of catapult, at the aliens at some point.

The best part about Saints Row IV patriotism is that the ultra conservatives will buy the game without realizing how vulgar it is. Because 'Merica.

It doesn't look like a Saint's Row game, but it still looks awesome. I wonder if the aliens are a part of the main plot, or a sideplot (maybe another film?). Looking forward to it.

That's a shame. I was hoping to remake my character from SR3, who also had her voice.

Yeah, that's basically the Saint's Row formula. No words on the level of customization, however, which is a little disappointing.

Dear Volition here's a simple way to make this game a hit, but I know you won't do it because you hate money.

The aliens blow the crap out of the white house, the boss and crew are laying on the lawn of the white house as all of Washington DC burns around them. The boss turns to Kensie and says "Kensie initiate house party protocol!" A giant space opens up under the white house to reveal clones of every dead saints member in chambers. Shaundi turns to the boss and says "What the fuck you had clones of all of them and you just brought them back now?!" The boss shrugs and says "Well Johnny bet me $10,000 that the bank heist would go bad..." Gat steps out of his chamber puts on his glasses, smiles and says "Did ya miss me?" Then they proceed to lay the biggest smackdown in human history. And all the fans cream their pants.

Try the first game, it has virtually none of the silly absurdity of 3. 2 has a little, but it is offset by the extremely dark twists the story takes.

Not sure what's sexier: that scene or the 'Merica fireworks gatling gun in action right after it.

yeah sue me i call fireworks "sexy"... and Kinzie's still hotter than a gatling gun full of fireworks.

I have a thing for redheads with a tight body and a fetish for tech.
You can romance your homies in SR4, you know I'm going to romance the fuck out of Kenzie. I'll take her out to fancy dinners and respect the shit out of her. All night!

Also Volition know how to make a good trailer.

Evil Smurf:
Snip

I'm with you on the Kenzie talk, and I completely forgot you can romance your homies. >.<
And I thought Kenzie got no love in the previous game so ... ya, I'm totally going to do the same.

Now I can only pray they didn't change too much in the Australian version, I was going to cancel my pre-order but ... I just can't do that as a fan of the series.

So yeah ... I can still look forward to it, dang-nabit.
*Sigh*
I wish I could anal probe my anal probing overlords ... least we can dream.
