The Humble Bundle gives you the best, cheapest way to play Saints Row 3 before the sequel drops
Disclosure: Child’s Play is one of the charities that benefit from the Humble Bundles. Penny Arcade content has appeared in previous Humble Bundles.
Listen, I'm going to butt up against an embargo a bit and tell you that, based on what I've played so far, Saints Row IV is a much better game than Saints Row III. I don't say that lightly, as Saints Row III is one of my favorite games basically ever. I've bought it for many friends during countless Steam sales just so I could take them through the co-op campaign.
It's been great to go from playing Saints Row III and wondering how in the world they're going to top it, and then playing a game that topped it. You have the same chance. Right now. It's about to be offered to you.
The latest Humble Bundle is filled with Deep Silver games, and the collection is pretty much amazing. Guess what game it includes, along with the DLC?
This video kind of sums it all up for me.
Saints Row 2 is okay, but Saints Row III consists only of knees-ripped-off-Grade-A-bees, plus you can get the collection of Saints Row 3 DLC if you pay over $4.42, along with Dead Island, which is another great game for co-op. If you pay over $25 for the whole mess you also get Dead Island: Riptide.
I don't have much to say about Riptide, as I haven't played it. Oh, and there are soundtracks in there. Because why not?
I've been critical of the Humble Bundle running AAA bundles in the past, but you all made it clear that I was being a big dumb stupid ass-head, so I'm done being picky about it. I also love the idea of more people buying and playing Saints Row 3 together, and now you'll be done about the time Saints Row IV comes out, which is so good it's nearly stupid. Or so stupid it's good. I don't know, I'm still working on the review.
Okay, so here's the deal. You can buy one of the best open world games ever made for a few bucks, play it and love it, and then play the sequel WHICH IS EVEN BETTER, or you can buy the sequel, and then play Saints Row III, and feel like you've taken a step back.
That wouldn't be the right move, would it? Of course not. That's not how life works, and that's not how YOU work. Do the right thing.
