Going hand-in-hand with our new found excitement about Saints Row: The Third, I thought I’d post this video I came across on GiantBomb.com. Watching this made me even more pumped for this game and I hope it does the same for you. Additionally, if you would like to hear our initial thoughts on this game, check out SSWL 019.
