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

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

MechaTama31That's a pretty difficult anatomy to break.02/26/2015 - 11:09pm
MechaTama31"the way her animations repeatedly break her anatomy" <-- I'm sorry, but we are talking here about the woman who can roll up into a little ball and live to tell the tale, yes? ;)02/26/2015 - 11:09pm
Andrew EisenAs far as examples that could be culled from female game characters though, that one's pretty mild.02/26/2015 - 9:11pm
Andrew EisenNot as much the heels or the suit in and of themselves but certainly the way her animations repeatedly break her anatomy to show off her lady bits.02/26/2015 - 9:10pm
E. Zachary KnightWell, Samus's heels are certainly impracticable, but I wouldn't really call her Zero suit objectified. I don't really feel that the new Lara Croft is objectified either, but that is my subjective opinion.02/26/2015 - 9:08pm
Andrew EisenTomb Raider: No but we haven't seen much of anything yet. Samus: Yes.02/26/2015 - 9:07pm
ZippyDSMleeWould you call the new tomb raider objectified? WOuld Samus Aran from the new Smash bros be objectified?02/26/2015 - 9:02pm
WonderkarpI'm hoping they put the rest of the comic book ghostbusters in there. Ortiz and Rookie(From GB the game)02/26/2015 - 8:38pm
Wonderkarpghostbusters board game is doing great. getting close too a 3rd extra playable Character. Ron Alexander.02/26/2015 - 8:37pm
Andrew EisenSmurfette is not subjective. If there's more than one female character, it's not Smurfette. Anyway, as with everything on the list, Smurfette is, in and of itself, not necessarily a bad thing.02/26/2015 - 8:32pm
Andrew EisenI think there's 5 women (out of 15, I think) but other than one being a bit more "hippy" than the others, they pretty much all have the same body type. Especially when compaired to the huge variety of male body types.02/26/2015 - 8:31pm
Wonderkarpso I dont see Smurfette as a bad thing. Unless like all your female characters are Smurfette. remember the Smurfs also had Sassette02/26/2015 - 8:29pm
E. Zachary KnightOne good example of the larger issues is one Anita used in the presentation, Blizzard's Overwatch game. There are a dozen men in the game with a dozen body types. But there are only 4 women with 2 body types, but 3 of them have the same one.02/26/2015 - 8:28pm
Wonderkarpthe smurfette thing is subjective to how many female characters you have. Take Sonic for example. You have Amy, who is obvious smurfette, but there's several other female characters now without that. Including the original animated seriescomics with Sally02/26/2015 - 8:28pm
E. Zachary KnightAE. Very true. I think that is where I was going, but it didn't come out right. Jack Harkness is sexy but not objectified. Whereas, a women would have to be objectified in order to be "sexy" in most games.02/26/2015 - 8:26pm
E. Zachary KnightAnd as Andrew pointed out, there is a big difference between a sexualized man, and an idealized man. But for some reason, there is no distinction between women in games. For the most part.02/26/2015 - 8:25pm
Andrew EisenI think one of the issues we run into repeatedly with these conversations is the confusion over "sexy" and "sexually objectified."02/26/2015 - 8:24pm
E. Zachary KnightYet, for some reason, in orde rto have a sexualized women, she must be wearing lingerie or a bikini. Can't women be sexual and still dress for the job at hand?02/26/2015 - 8:24pm
E. Zachary KnightThe problem I have with complaints of "sexualized men" is that men don't have to wear speedos to be sexualized. Captain Jack Harkness from Torchwood/Doctor Who, was one sexy man, but he spent 99% of his time in a WW2 soldier's trenchcoat.02/26/2015 - 8:23pm
Andrew EisenThat there's more to her character than her sexualization? Sure (depending on which depiction we're talking about). No one's claiming that there are zero examples of female characters beyond their sexualization.02/26/2015 - 8:22pm
