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
