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.

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

E. Zachary KnightSo how much time must pass since the last time you played a game before you are no longer a gamer?10/30/2014 - 11:33am
Andrew Eisen"Plays" is present tense so the clarification doesn't seem necessary to me.10/30/2014 - 11:18am
quiknkoldI would change that from "One who plays games" To "One who currently plays games". Like my friend as a kid playd games but then he stopped and hasnt for the last decade+ so I wouldnt call him a Gamer.10/30/2014 - 11:16am
Andrew EisenHmm, that sounds like a great idea for a series of articles! I bet they'd be well-received and not taken the complete wrong way at all!10/30/2014 - 11:12am
Andrew EisenThat's right, gamer simply means one who plays games. That's it. The idea that "gamer" refers to something very limited and specific, well, that's no longer applicable in this day and age of mainstream gaming.10/30/2014 - 11:12am
Andrew EisenMatthew - As I said last night, that is not a bad thing. Different types of reviews to serve different interests is a GOOD thing and should be encouraged! There is not, nor should there be, only one way to review a game or anything else.10/30/2014 - 11:01am
ZippyDSMleeAnyone see this? http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/10/29/1339617/-Cartoon-Gamergate-Contagion-Spreads?detail=facebook10/30/2014 - 10:55am
E. Zachary KnightNeeneko, Matthew, yeah, there is no "wrong" way to review a game. It all depends on who the reviewer wants reading the review.10/30/2014 - 10:48am
quiknkoldhas their own stream, you are a gamer. I think the only prerequiset is to Play Games for Enjoyment10/30/2014 - 10:21am
quiknkoldI always felt the Gamer Identity was expressing an enthusiasm for Gaming in general. There are different degrees to that. If you say "I love this game and play it, lets see what else" with Ipad game, you are a gamer. If you are a retro game collector who10/30/2014 - 10:20am
NeenekoIt is long overdue, and things will probably settle down when they accept that the industry does not cater to them and them alone and go back to posturing within their own subculture.10/30/2014 - 10:10am
NeenekoThe community has always been split, with many factions within it, and they used to not interact all that much. Now they are having to confront they are not alone and thus not the one twue gamer identity.10/30/2014 - 10:09am
CMinerMW: The two are not mutually exclusive.10/30/2014 - 10:05am
Matthew Wilsonthe gaming community is going to split in to 2 groups. one wants games reviewed as product, and the other as art with all the social critique that comes with that. at this point i dont think it can be stopped sadly.10/30/2014 - 9:56am
NeenekoIt is a wonderful example of the heart of the issue, people accustomed to being part of defining value slamming into people who have other values.10/30/2014 - 9:53am
E. Zachary KnightAlso, this is a hillarious view of Kickstarter "Fine, still doesn't justify taking people's money they gave her to do a project for herself." talking about Sarkeesian.10/30/2014 - 9:35am

E. Zachary KnightApparently, it is ok to review a games art on whether or not you like the style, but not ok to review a game's story or theme based on whether or not you like or agree with it.10/30/2014 - 8:40am
MechaCrashComics never change because the people in charge now read comics when they were kids, and keep reverting comics to what they remember. As long as that cycle holds, change will be slow at best.10/30/2014 - 8:18am
Neeneko@ MechaTama31 - That is the big reason fansubs were tollerated for so long in the US, japanese studios kept watch to see which ones became popular via those networks.10/30/2014 - 8:11am
