Saints Row has always been entertaining, but the third installment will need a definite boost if it wants to compete with the big boys.
And that seems to be THQ's plan. According to new information garnered from the recent PlayStation Magazine , we learn of a variety of upgrades and features that may help Saints Row: The Third excel in the sales category: first, as choice and freedom continues to become more popular this generation, it should be known that "the player will make major decisions that dictate the ending." As you gather up the city in your iron grip, you'll be able to build safe houses, but you have to eliminate the "Flash Points" (random pockets of rival gangs) in the area before you can do so. They also claim that story missions will be "far more diverse," and the graphics will be significantly improved thanks to better detail and a "slightly less cartoonish aesthetic."
For our part, we're just wondering if they plan to hire any pornstars to be involved in the game. Or if they'll only be added via extra DLC at a later date.
