I also have the urge to paint my minivan a pearlescent purple. Because I am a Saint. And I need to represent.
This is all the result of digitaltempest’s new co-op requirements and TIM going on and on about the value of PlayStation Plus. A subscription to the latter led to free Saints Row 3 and now I am happily causing shit all over Steelport in the name of the beautiful Johnny Gat. Co-oping with digitaltempest has taught us many things about each other (well, mostly it’s just taught her that she should drive) and there’s nothing like helping each other steal military vehicles, collect hoes and perform heliassaults to strengthen a friendship.
for equality, my husband paid close attention to how I customized his Churchill. Inevitably, I came downstairs one night to find that he was happily on his way to taking over Steelport himself.
Make no mistake. This is a deplorable game and one I definitely can’t let our kids see (unless I turn down the volume and let them customize cars). In fact, without ever really knowing what this or GTA were like, I determined that the urban violence genre for the sake of violence just wasn’t my thing. But if you make it over the top satire, then I’m game. And if you show me a sequel that goes even further over the top AND features Keith David as Keith David, how can I possibly resist?
