New Screenshots via Gameinformer

Several new screenshots have been posted by Gameinformer recently. There are more  at their website, but here are a few that I found interesting: 
 

















 
Game looks appropriately silly and crazy. I also like the fact that its look is distinctive; not trying to attempt to match GTA IV's style or something like that.

Saints Row never tried to compete with GTA in anyway except for the free-roam part. This game looks awesome, freedom to do anything, full character customization, and hopefully some crazy multiplayer.

Girl in purple cowboy hat and bikini dodging bullets and explosions. Yup, that's Saints Row alright.  
 
Say what you will about the theme but SR2 actually had surprisingly strong voice acting, hope they bring that back in SR3.

Cockney accent option is all I need to be sold on this game, double if there's a female Cockney accent.

Well, co-op specifically in this case since it's been confirmed multiplayer won't be part of the game, much to my dismay.

There were streakers in the 2nd game, and they may have been also there for the first. Not sure if you could run around naked in SR2, but its inclusion in The Third definitely wouldn't surprise me.

It's really hard to tell from that screenshot but, for all we know, there could be much more than that to explore.

Yup, that sure is Saints Row!

I don't think I could physically want this game any more than I already do. I need this to come out soon.

Yes, tanks : D

I heart dildo swords.

Hopefully the PC port isn't a sack of shit this time.

@mcderby4 : As much as I love the games, there is no denying it was originally a clone. Trying to cash in on an already successful idea. I mean, they implemented everything that, at the time, was uniqe to GTA. The UI, the radio stations, the 'parody humor' and so on. The second game on the other hand felt a lot more original due to being probably more self-aware. And now it seems as they've truly come into their own.

A big purple dildo sword??? Ok then.

@FluxWave
You coul'd get completly naked and streak in no. 2 
 
@ Bwast  
Volition have said they are doing the porting job themselves this time. Should be better then what CD Projekt did.

I am sold.

A few of those shots look a little too good. 
 
I didn't even like Saints Row 2, but I'll be buying this for sure. I chalk my annoyances with Saints Row 2 up to just being fatigued on open-world sandbox games, but I've ignored most of them for quite awhile now so I'm ready to jump back in.

Everything about these images is what I want from that game.
#23 Posted by Oldirtybearon (4897 posts) -

Yep, that's The Row. 
 
Yep, that's Stilwater. 
 
Yep, I fucking want this game.

#24 Posted by Soap (3645 posts) -

I'm in!

#25 Posted by SamFo (1562 posts) -

that map looks very similair to gta iv at first glance

#26 Posted by ThePilgrums (433 posts) -

Do you see what I see? TANKS! IN AN OPEN WORLD CRIME GAME!!!! How long has it been ? San Adreas? Vice City? TOO GODDAMN LONG??? 
 
Looks a bit smaller than gta4, but we'll see how much activity there is. And the art style looks great. You can make cute ladies this time. Or.... black guys with 8 inch cocks. EVERYONE WINS.

It would have a big penis!

#28 Posted by FesteringNeon (2166 posts) -

Think they'll work on animations / physics a bit more? 

#29 Posted by Druminator (1687 posts) -

Ok this looks pretty silly... which is good.

#30 Posted by IkariNoTekken (987 posts) -

Great screenshots, I just hope with all that mayhem on-screen that the frame rate remains playable. 
Anyone remember the missions on the boats in SR2?

@KingWilly
Yep, that's The Row. 
 
Yep, that's Stilwater.

Actually this game is set in a new city, not Stilwater.

There is no doubt in my mind that this game will be the best open world GTA style game ever created. While GTA4 was boring as shit, and Mafia 2 had us driving around for hours, and Red Dead Redemption had us doing farm chores... Saints Row 3 will have us doing all those, naked, with a hotdog suit, in a sewage truck firing shit out the hoses to cause property damage. The best coop games ever created, bar none.

Saints Row 2 was already better than any of those for open world goodness. Can't wait for The Third!

Pixelated genitals?  Damn, I was hoping they'd go full nudity on this one.  Who else is tired of this crap?  13 year old kids can go to movies that show full nudity, but at 30 years old with a full time job I still can't buy games that have it.

I think pixelation makes it funnier than if it were uncensored. And there are several games that have full nudity.

But what if I want my character's dong pierced?  Or get flames tattooed on it?  It's just odd to me with everything ELSE that is definitely R-rated in these sandbox games, they're being prudish about this one area.

@bukkookkub:

I hope so! The animations are awful in these games. Also hope they worked on the driving, its so bad. I love Saints Row don't get me wrong.

They're probably just trying to avoid an AO rating.

Everything new that they reveal just makes me heart this game all the more. Especially the graphics and the character models since that was one irk I found tough to shrug in Saints Row 2; really was tough for me to create a character that I liked, and to me I thought the original Saints Row had better graphics. It even had tie physics (SR2 didn't, and most clothing looked like it was painted on), which is pretty rudimentary, I know, but was still surprising when I headed into the first, in 2006, after so much playtime of the second.

First screen looks epic.
 
I recalled GTA IV from the map however. I hope they're not trying to copy it, because this ain't gonna end well.

I hope I get to enhance my character's dick size
