Saints Row: The Third Pushes Sexual Boundaries, Series “Not Even Trying to be Serious”

October 4, 2011Written by Josh Lewis

The Saints Row franchise is known for featuring an over the top sense of humor, and Saints Row: The Third looks like it will push the envelope even further. Volition’s Drew Homes has shared some details on how Saints Row: The Third pushes sexual boundaries, but never strays beyond the proverbial line too far into becoming outright offensive.

Speaking in regards to Saints Row: The Third using sex appeal, Homes told Official PlayStation Magazine:

The studio certainly push the boundaries – particularly with stuff like the ‘sex appeal’ slider.’

He added:

You never want to cross the line into crudely offensive. It’s a thin line to walk, but you know when you’ve crossed it – and as long as it stays irreverent and tongue-in-cheek, then we can push it a lot further than if we were trying to play it serious. The advantage Saints Row has is that it’s “not even trying to be serious” and is clearly a “cartoony, outlandish game”, which helps take “some of the bullets out of the media gun”.

Volition and THQ have already gone on the record stating that Saint Row: The Third will take the franchise in a new direction. Anxious fans will have to wait until the game officially launches on November 15th to see what changes have been brought to the table this time around.
