McCain, Obama Portrayed in Saints Row 2 Co-op Trailer

September 11, 2008 -

A new video trailer which shows off the cooperative mode in the upcoming Saints Row 2 features likenesses of presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama engaging in full-on gameplay.

And in Saints Row, of course, that means full-on violent gameplay...

Gallagher can araç kiralama say all he wants, but I strongly rent a car believe it's due to his crappy leadership and E3 being a joke. ESA's Board of Directors need to find a way to get out rent a car of this horrid contract with this Bush cronie before there's no one left on the Board.

Btw, I think Atari and Midway will drop out too, but mostly travesti because  these guys have done nothing ttnet vitamin or little and need to start saving costs.

hahah kudos to voiliton and THQ

they honestly have some major balls, GTA bashing now this! hellz yeah.

not to mention that saints row was actually a decent game, which i plan on buying over GTA

Re: McCain, Obama Portrayed in Saints Row 2 Co-op Trailer

LOL!

That was actually pretty funny.

Re: McCain, Obama Portrayed in Saints Row 2 Co-op Trailer

Waiiiit.... did they say the coop was only through online?

Please tell me I didn't just hear that.

Re: McCain, Obama Portrayed in Saints Row 2 Co-op Trailer

 uhhh.. Saints Row is like GTA's incredibly immature little brother. This shit is'nt even really that clever.

Re: McCain, Obama Portrayed in Saints Row 2 Co-op Trailer

Not true. Saint's Row is more like GTA's goofy fun-loving cousin. SR2 looks to do what GTA4 didn't... and that is offer fun video gamey stuff to do (albeit probably not that well execeuted).

Re: McCain, Obama Portrayed in Saints Row 2 Co-op Trailer

agree - and to haven't  a storyline to fdollow is a plus to me, a very relaxing game
 

Re: McCain, Obama Portrayed in Saints Row 2 Co-op Trailer

That was awesome, Pirates and Ninjas :D.

Re: McCain, Obama Portrayed in Saints Row 2 Co-op Trailer

God save the Queen??... WTF?

 

OK So I've never played saints row -  maybe I'm missing a reference

Re: McCain, Obama Portrayed in Saints Row 2 Co-op Trailer

In America, we stole it for "My Country 'Tis of Thee."

Sorry, Brits! :)

Re: McCain, Obama Portrayed in Saints Row 2 Co-op Trailer

Yippe Kay Yay Mr. McCain...

Re: McCain, Obama Portrayed in Saints Row 2 Co-op Trailer

That was awesome XD

I loved seeing Obama toss explosives out of the back of a bus, and McCain smash a knee into that guy's face.

But then there's the DEEPER message here, people: put aside your political disagreements and go play some video games!

Re: McCain, Obama Portrayed in Saints Row 2 Co-op Trailer

Yeah because we must band together and defeat the randomly assorted people on the other team, so grab your rockets.

Re: McCain, Obama Portrayed in Saints Row 2 Co-op Trailer

I wonder if it would've been better if they were throwing explosives out of the straight talk express instead of just some regular bus.

Re: McCain, Obama Portrayed in Saints Row 2 Co-op Trailer

Epic. beautifully epic

Re: McCain, Obama Portrayed in Saints Row 2 Co-op Trailer

AWESOME!

Re: McCain, Obama Portrayed in Saints Row 2 Co-op Trailer

ROFL

Re: McCain, Obama Portrayed in Saints Row 2 Co-op Trailer

I thought that was actually really clever, it looks like fun to throw explosive boxes out of the back of a truck.

Oh and I don't know why you guys think people will be upset by this. For starters, they're presidential nominees so it's to be expected they'd be parodied.

BWAAAHAAAAHAAAAA!

Re: McCain, Obama Portrayed in Saints Row 2 Co-op Trailer

  GamePolitics puts me in that kind of mindset...

 

 What I heard: 'It's time to lay aside our differences, and ban together as teams for the greater good of society.'

Re: McCain, Obama Portrayed in Saints Row 2 Co-op Trailer

How long will it be until we see politictions get all butthurt by this?

Re: McCain, Obama Portrayed in Saints Row 2 Co-op Trailer

I doubt we will see either McCain or Obama get all pissy about it.

Both candidates seem to be kind of on the same page in regards to gaming. It is nothing big nor is it anything small, but being as there is a war, a jacked up economy, and real need for alternative fuel and energy sources to be explored and implemented as a national standard, there are much bigger fish to fry.

Re: McCain, Obama Portrayed in Saints Row 2 Co-op Trailer

I think that's the point.

Re: McCain, Obama Portrayed in Saints Row 2 Co-op Trailer

FIRST!

A little light hearted humor would be a nice change of pace. 

 

I give it a day before the fundies start frothing at the mouth though.

Re: McCain, Obama Portrayed in Saints Row 2 Co-op Trailer

Yeah, 'cuz fundies are the only ones who froth at the mouth...

Re: McCain, Obama Portrayed in Saints Row 2 Co-op Trailer

Oh no... rabid animals do too :D

Re: McCain, Obama Portrayed in Saints Row 2 Co-op Trailer

 Like he said, only fundies.

Re: McCain, Obama Portrayed in Saints Row 2 Co-op Trailer

I now regret Hillary didn't win the nomination as it would of been funny if she was in the commercial for a violent video game.  xD

Andrew EisenYes, the Wii U upscales but rendering in a higher resolution looks a hell of a lot better.08/01/2014 - 10:35pm
Andrew EisenIt's pretty. Lots of videos of it floating around. Just search "Xenoblade dolphin" and you'll find them.08/01/2014 - 10:32pm
ZippyDSMleeThe WII upscales tho. Matthew: It might be becue cartoonish desings do not age as fast as presudo realisim.08/01/2014 - 10:29pm
Matthew WilsonPeople who have run the Mario Galaxy games on a emulator have said they look better then most xb1/ps4 games when upscaled, so it would be interesting to see a upscaled version of Xenoblade08/01/2014 - 9:24pm
Andrew EisenHeck, it would probably sell better to newbies anyway. Even with its awesome art direction, the game looked dated when it came out years ago. I imagine an SD version would be a tougher sell.08/01/2014 - 8:55pm
Andrew EisenBecause it would be cool, would serve the game's fantastic art direction well and encourage people who've already played it to buy it again.08/01/2014 - 7:42pm
ZippyDSMleeWhy bother with an HD relese just repack the damn thing and promote it since it will play on the WIIU anyway....08/01/2014 - 7:04pm
Andrew EisenPlus, with Nintendo carrying the Wii U almost all by itself, it could help plug one of the unfortunately inevitable release schedule gaps.08/01/2014 - 3:23pm
Andrew EisenAn HD re-release would be cool though. It's a great game (and quite the looker, especially when up-rezzed) and more people should play it (the game had a limited release at a time when the Wii was all but dead an buried).08/01/2014 - 3:21pm
E. Zachary KnightSo no, people are not going to need to play the Wii game to undstand or enjoy the Wii U game.08/01/2014 - 1:27pm
E. Zachary KnightFrom what I understand, the two games have as much to do with eachother as Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy 2.08/01/2014 - 1:26pm
MaskedPixelanteIt's my secret hope that Nintendo announces Xenoblade HD to be released in the leadup to Xenoblade Chronicles X, or at least a mass market version of the first game so that people aren't going into this one blind.08/01/2014 - 12:40pm
PHX CorpI'm going to do a test stream later today, if anyone is intrested07/31/2014 - 2:40pm
Andrew EisenYes, I'm such a big Nintendo dork that I read Nintendo's quarterly financial reports.07/31/2014 - 2:09pm
Andrew EisenCool tidbit - Mario Kart 8 sales account for more than half of total Wii U software sales for the last quarter even though it was only available for the last third.07/31/2014 - 2:09pm
Andrew EisenStill a pretty cool promotion. Unfortunately for me, I'm not interested in purchasing Mario Kart 8 and I already owned or didn't want any of the free games on offer.07/31/2014 - 1:43pm
Andrew EisenInteresting that EU had 10 games to choose from while North America only had four.07/31/2014 - 1:41pm
MaskedPixelanteIt certainly worked, I probably would never have bought Mario Kart 8 if it didn't come with a free copy of Wind Waker HD.07/31/2014 - 1:14pm
Andrew EisenI imagine will see similar promotions like "Buy Mario Kart 8 get a download code for one of these specific games" but almost certainly not for all of its (however you would define) biggest releases.07/31/2014 - 11:24am
MaskedPixelanteI wonder if Nintendo is going to be doing "buy one get one free" promos for all their biggest releases going forward.07/31/2014 - 10:48am
