Although all Saints Row DLC have recently been removed from the Xbox Marketplace, THQ have finally done something right by announcing that they will be releasing all DLC for Saints Row: The Third on disc.
I salute Kevin Kraff for giving fans what they have requested. Hopefully the DLC for Saints Row and Saints Row 2 will also be released on disc. The Saints Row double pack was a missed opportunity to do exactly that.

Apparantly it's going to be part of Saints Row 4, not sure of the reasoning behind it though.

Last night, 's community manager, V-Singular, did a live Q&A video where he answered a few questions while showing off the Initiation Station. While most of the questions he answered are already known, there were some small tid-bits of info to scrape from the livestream. Sitting there with the video on one side, and a WordPad document on the other, I did just that.
Here's some answers to the more interesting questions I picked up on:
- The Initiation Station was released on All Saints' Day.
- Almost 1,000,000 unique characters uploaded to the Initiation Station so far.
- Co-op pausing is all "null and void" (although, personally, I've noticed Whored Mode can be paused in co-op).
- Many co-op features are accessible in the cellphone menu, and
accessing it doesn't pause the game.
- Furthermore, players can both buy clothes at same time.
- Q&A 3 video coming later this week.
- Nearly 100 cheats, both new and old. Answered further in Q&A 3.
- No skateboards and bicycles for players.
- "Pickpocket" upgrade allows pl…

With the release of the "Shock and Awesome" trailer, and all the commotion it has caused, it's possible that all the more recent amazing previews and news may have passed you by.
- 1 Shock and Awesome trailer
- 2 Previews
- 2.1 Video previews
- 2.2 Written previews
- 3 Closing words
- 4 External Links
The "Shock and Awesome" trailer, if somehow you did miss it, showcased the Special Tactical Anti-Gang unit - also known as STAG. Its opening and closing satirized recent Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3 trailers respectively, similar to how Saints Row 2's trailers satirized Grand Theft Auto IV. With Zimos, Reaper Drones, a Sonic Boom, flying aircraft carriers, and a helluva load of STAG adversaries, the trailer was certainly something.
But I'm not here to talk about that. I'm here to remind you to check out some other videos from the recent Saints Row: The Third event, which reveal the opening missions of the game and the exciting Whored Mode. In particular, GameSpot's and GameTrailers' video previews ar…

Information has already began leaking for the game Saints Row: The Third. Now we can throw in a porn actress and a professional wrestler. , , and will all be voicing major characters in the upcoming game.
Grey, will be the voice of Viola DeWynter. DeWynter along with her twin sister Kiki DeWynter, run The Syndicate's financial empire. Hogan will be voicing the character Angel De La Muerte. He is a luchador who was betrayed by ex-partner Killbane. Killbane then assumed the role of leader of the Luchadores (spelling unsure) gang. Finally, Kim will be returning as Johnny Gat. In this game, he is now an international celebrity who can be seen driving the Johnny Gat-mobile.
What do you think about these casting decisions so far? Interested in them?
.]] Volition, Inc. recently released a video on Saints Row: The Third, revealing a small amount of interesting infomation. The video consists of Steve Jaros, the lead writer of Saints Row, Saints Row 2, and now Saints Row: The Third, providing developer commentary over the CG "Power" trailer they showed at last month. The video can be seen to the right, or alternatively, if you want to see it on YouTube, you can click here to watch it.
The most notable information I picked up on:
- The 3rd Street Saints have now partnered with Ultor. But why? Perhaps due to the Protagonist's help with Eric Gryphon in Saints Row 2: Corporate Warfare?
- Viola and Kiki DeWynter are confirmed (against some minor speculation) not to be assassins, but "really awesome personal assistants" who are "real smart and savvy women".
- The woman in the FBI jacket who's typing away on her laptop during the gunfight is named Kinzie Kensington (or Kensey Kensington, unsure on the spelling, or even if I heard the name right). She u…
The April issue of Game Informer magazine will feature "ten pages of information about Saints Row: The Third, including all the details on the new city and the shady Syndicate crime ring that controls it," and will also be featured on the cover.

In a quote from THQ's Danny Bilson, he states that:
"We don't compete with GTA. We're differentiating even further with GTA with this one. The new Saint's Row will be less urban - it's definitely not about 'gangsta' anymore at all. And it's more fun and almost sillier and wackier and weirder than the other one.
I love GTA - especially the last one, which knocked my socks off. That's almost like a Martin Scorsese cartoon, right? We are more like the Mad Magazine version of that or something. It's colourful, it's wild, it's fun. "
What are your opinions on this new attitude/approach that they seem to be taking? Are you completely cool with it or do you believe that this is going to hurt the Saints Row 3?

The Row Community forum moderator Jay "V-Singular" Goldberg has revealed that Volition will be unveiling some big Saints Row-related news on Monday, 9 November 2009. The moderator advises fans to check the official community home page on Monday, to be the first to hear the announcement.
The "big news" will come nearly thirteen months after Saints Row 2's release date, back in October 2008. Since last October, various news sites and indeed a Volition official, have been quoted as saying that Saints Row 3 is in development. However, the aforementioned moderator disregarded these rumours in a statement from March this year, located here, stating that "Saints Row 3 is not a confirmed game at this time, it was only referred to in an interview as being in pre-production. Unless the game makes it out of that phase, then it does not wholly exist, which is why we are keeping our focus on SR1 and SR2 now. If SR3 becomes an actual game, we will then announce it here, and open up a section specifica…Read post >
