The lights are on
While the original Saints Row felt familiar to fans of the open-world crime genre, its sequel separated itself from the pack with almost cartoonish over-the-top action. Whether you were chainsawing elderly people in half or spraying a pool party down with a poop truck, the franchise was clearly heading in its own direction. Saints Row: The Third takes things a step forward as the most insane installment yet, and it's our April cover.
The cover above will be going out to our subscribers, while the cover below will be available on newsstands.
We'll have 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. This issue also includes a feature on Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, the ambitious RPG developed by Big Huge Games and Curt Schilling's 38 Studios. Being our April issue, you can also look forward to our annual parody of the industry in Game Infarcer.
Check out page 2 for the official THQ press release regarding Saints Row: The Third, and keep an eye on our hub all month long for more coverage.

The first cover isn't anything amazing but I love the second.Now that's a nice cover.
I hope to god that they make this game as good as 2. I'm kind of worried about the whole starting off at full strength thing. I was hoping that you would have to carve out a swath of the new city to establish the Saints. Then again, maybe that's how it's going to work...Hopefully the graphics are going to be better. Saints Row 2 looked amazing, but they've had enough time for it to be quite reasonable to expect improvements. I'll keep my fingers crossed.
Love me some Saints Row. Can't wait to read this.
Can't Wait To Read This
I KNEW IT! A MONTH EARLY!
Both covers are fantastically cool...
Eh... never played the first two, but who knows, this could be cool.
I really wish these covers were April fools jokes.. I would rather have the one for newsstands personally.
Can't wait for GameInfarcer, anyways.
oh no! I'll play it only if Ice T is in it!
can't wait, I've had both the first and second and loved them both, plus that first cover looks pretty crazy. Awesome gunfight while free failing...sweet! Dang and i just realized that guy has one had on his gun and the other is holding onto his chute!!! wicked
I love Gameinfarcer, the only thing better is the letters from the people who fell for all the stories that super editor in chief Darth Clark lets get published.
Oh and Saints Row the Third, maybe. I remember getting a survey about a year ago that asked a lot of questions regarding the Saints Row franchise.
sorry guys but...these covers arent that great, not as good as the batman arkham city, or the awesome lara croft cover
