The lights are on
When critics and fans pinned descriptors like "absurd" and "over-the-top" and "running around pantsless," we didn't really intend them to be a challenge. Volition, bolstered and encouraged by new publisher Deep Silver, have interpreted the praise just so.
The curtain was pulled back on Saints Row 4 at PAX East, and we were there to cover it. Now, you can see what we saw, including super powers, crazy new weapons like the dubstep gun, and a mech that dances the robot.
The seven-minute developer walkthrough below covers new activities, the alien menace, visual weapon customization (in addition to Saints Row: The Third's upgrades), and a robot that dances the robot.
You can take over the free world on August 20, 2013, when Saints Row 4 arrives for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.

Clearly this series doesn't care about things like 'Logic' and 'Decency'.
Which is how I like my video games!
Is this secretly "Dan Ryckert: The Game"?
not to be a hater but this game looks like a big dlc....
yes i am ready. over the top here we go.
this game is just insane. glad they stepped away from being an GTA clone to being its own crazy thing
I'm not entirely a big fan of the direction that they decided to take the series. Saints Row was more of a GTA clone than anything, but I felt like Saints Row 2 really found an amazing blend of humor, insanity, and a very engrossing storyline. The Ronin storyline was probably one of the best videogame storyarchs I've ever played through.
I know this game does not make any sense, but it looks fun
Meh... I'll take GTA over this any day.
"Only Saints Row IV can offer weapons as strange and exotic as this." I guess these guys haven't played any Ratchet & Clank games.
"next we're gonna do a little shopping, so why not take a monster truck to get there?"
day-one purchase for me right there.
Dubstep gun....I love how this was just going to DLC then they just made it a sequal you can definetly tell how quick of a decision that was.
Am I the only one who notices the Black Box from Team Fortress 2?
This should have been DLC.
I like the graphics but the gameplay is not for me.. Maybe 15-20 years ago, but this seems way to overpowered to be fun (for me)...
I can see the appeal it might have, as a pure sandbox game though..
Wow, the superpower movement mechanics are like enhanced versions of Prototype's, and that is fantastic.
Why do they keep making these
The video looks great and its nice that we get a little more information on the game. There are a few things I like; The super powers: why? because in the previous version I made several comic book characters that would work great with the super powers. Aliens: Its nice to see a new enemy in the series even if they oddly remind me of what you dealt with in the third in regards to the military, except with a twist. Weapon customizing: Being able to change the look and feel of your weapons is a fresh change to the upgrades themselves all be it I was expecting it to be more of a 'change the color' kind of thing but still nice to be able to change the over all look. Mech availability: this makes for a nice change from running around in tanks and blowing stuff up, now you can get mechanized and blow stuff up.
What I do not understand is, why the president? Do you really need to be the president in order to have super powers or fight aliens?
Over all, If I can get a job or scavenge up some cash (without picking pockets or beating machines) I will get this game when it comes out.
