Suddenly previews, previews errywhere!

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.

Shock and Awesome trailer

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 are well worth the watch and both contain new footage.

Video previews

GameSpot's video, A Griefer's Guide to Saints Row: The Third, looks specifically at Player Customization and what the player can do in the game. GameTrailers' video preview, on the other hand, has arguably some of the best footage to date, and is my favourite video on Saints Row: The Third yet. I highly recommend you check it out, which is why I'm linking to the video here again.

And if you can stomach the dubstep and, well, Machinima, they recently released a video showing off the game as well. Overall it has a lot of footage we've already seen, but it also has some we haven't - including some of Josh Birk.

Written previews

Of course, if you have more time to spare, you may appreciate the more in-depth written previews. Just take your pick of previews from Destructoid, Kotaku, G4, Gaming Nexus, or GamesRadar.

Closing words

And, of course, it's worth noting that the official Saints Row forums are currently down for maintenance - most likely getting ready to add support for the upcoming Initiation Station, if this message is anything to go by.

With just to go until Saints Row: The Third is released, it's definitely time to start getting hyped for the game. If you're interested, follow the official Saints Row Twitter account to keep up with the latest news.
