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

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.

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!

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

Andrew EisenWell this is unique! A musical critique of the Factual Feminist's "Are Video Games Sexist?" video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-K4s7cV4Us409/20/2014 - 2:41am
Andrew EisenSome locked threads. Some let them be. So, no, I'm not seeing a problem here. No corruption. No collusion. No ethical problem with privately discussing ethics.09/20/2014 - 12:48am
Andrew EisenAnd still, in the end, Tito made up his own mind on how to handle his site. All 150 or so members went off to handle their own sites in their own ways. Some talked about it. Some didn't. Some changed disclosure policies. Some didn't.09/20/2014 - 12:40am
Andrew EisenThere were two comments other than Kochera and Tito's. One pointed out the Escapist Code of Conduct, another comment was in support of Tito.09/20/2014 - 12:40am
Andrew EisenKochera privately expressed his disagreement on how Tito decided to do something. No, I don't consider that crossing a line nor do I consider the exchange an example of the group pressuring him.09/20/2014 - 12:36am
Kronotechnical reasons. Anyways, I need to get to sleep as well.09/20/2014 - 12:29am
KronoAnd he wasn't the only one pushing Tito to censor the thread. If Tito had bowed to peer pressure, we likely wouldn't have gotten this http://goo.gl/vKiYtR which grew out of that thread. Said thread also lasted until a new one needed to be made for09/20/2014 - 12:28am
Krono@Andrew So it's an example of Kuchera crossing the line from reporter to advocate. And an example of the group pressuring for censorship.09/20/2014 - 12:21am
E. Zachary KnightAnyway, I am off to bed. I will probably wake up to all of this being knocked off the shout box.09/20/2014 - 12:20am
E. Zachary KnightKrono, that is the type of reading too much into things that bugs me. Ben did no such thing. Greg had the last word in that part of the exchange. The rest was about how to approach the story and Quinn.09/20/2014 - 12:19am
Andrew EisenSo?09/20/2014 - 12:13am
KronoExcept that the forum thread wasn't harassment, and Kuchera continued to push for the thread's removal after Tito made it clear he didn't consider it harassment.09/20/2014 - 12:12am
Andrew EisenPersonally, I see nothing wrong with someone offering their opinion or the other person making up their own mind on how to run their site.09/20/2014 - 12:06am
E. Zachary KnightKrono, I read nothing of the sort in that email chain. I read Ben giving advice on what to do when a forum thread is used to harass someone and spread falshoods about them and others.09/20/2014 - 12:05am
KronoThat's exactly what Ben Kuchera was doing to Greg Tito.09/19/2014 - 11:58pm
Krono@EZK So you see nothing wrong with one journalist pressuring a journalist from a different organization to not only not run a story, but to censor a civil discussion already taking place?09/19/2014 - 11:56pm
E. Zachary KnightI write for a number of blogs and talk to people who write similar blogs all the time for tips and advice. I see nothing wrong with that.09/19/2014 - 11:50pm
