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...

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!

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

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

E. Zachary KnightTeachers unions are just as bad as police unions, except of course you are far less likely to be killed by a teacher on duty than you are a cop. But they also protect bad teachers from being fired.07/07/2015 - 6:29pm
E. Zachary KnightGoth, so you agree they are still union members. Thankfully we have a first ammendment that protects people from being forced to join groups they don't support (in most cases any way.)07/07/2015 - 6:27pm
E. Zachary KnightAh, police unions. The reason why cops can't get fired when they beat a defenseless mentally ill homeless person to death. Or when they throw a grenade into a baby's crib. Or when theykill people they were called in to help not hurt themselves.07/07/2015 - 6:26pm
Goth_SkunkeZeek: Non-union employees have no right to attend meetings or union convention/AGM, or influence policy. The only time they get to vote is whether or not to strike.07/07/2015 - 6:24pm
Infophile(cont'd) about non-union police officers being given hell until they joined the union.07/07/2015 - 4:58pm
InfophileParadoxically, the drive in the US to get rid of unions seems to have left only the most corrupt surviving. They seem to be the only ones that can find ways to browbeat employees into joining when paying dues isn't mandatory. I've heard some stories ...07/07/2015 - 4:57pm
Matthew WilsonI am old school on this. I believe its a conflict of interest to have public sector unions. that being said, I do not have a positive look on unions in general.07/07/2015 - 3:59pm
TechnogeekWhat's best for the employee tends to be good for the employer; other way around, not so much. So long as that's the case, there's going to be a far stronger incentive for management to behave in such a way that invites retalitation than for the union to.07/07/2015 - 3:10pm
TechnogeekTeachers' unions? State legislatures. UAW? Just look at GM's middle management.07/07/2015 - 3:05pm
TechnogeekIn many ways it seems that the worse a union tends to behave, the worse that the company's management has behaved in the past.07/07/2015 - 3:02pm
james_fudgeCharity starts at home ;)07/07/2015 - 2:49pm
james_fudgeSo mandatory charity? That sounds shitty to me07/07/2015 - 2:49pm
E. Zachary KnightGoth, if Union dues are automatically withdrawn, then there is no such thing as a non-union employee.07/07/2015 - 2:38pm
Goth_Skunka mutually agreed upon charity instead.07/07/2015 - 2:33pm
Goth_Skunkyou enjoy the benefits of working in a union environment. If working in a union is against your religious beliefs or just something you wholeheartedly object to, dues will still be deducted from your pay, but you can instruct that they be directed towards07/07/2015 - 2:33pm
Goth_SkunkBasically, if you are employed in a business where employees are represented by a union for the purposes of collective bargaining, whether or not you are a union member, you will have union dues deducted from your pay, since regardless of membership,07/07/2015 - 2:32pm
Goth_SkunkIt's something that has existed in Canada since 1946. You can read more on it here: http://ow.ly/PiHWR07/07/2015 - 2:27pm
Goth_SkunkSee, we have something similar in Canada, called a "Rand Employee." This is an employee who benefits from the collective bargaining efforts of a union, despite not wanting to be a part of it for whatever reason.07/07/2015 - 2:22pm
Matthew Wilson@info depends on the sector. for example, have you looked at how powerful unions are in the public sector? I will make the argument they have too much power in that sector.07/07/2015 - 12:39pm
InfophileIt's easy to worry about unions having too much power and causing harm. The odd thing is, why do people seem to worry about that more than the fact that business-owners can have too much power and do harm, particularly at a time when unions have no power?07/07/2015 - 12:31pm
