Saints Row: The Third's Genki Pre-Order Items Are Mad

Richard Walker

Saints Row: The Third is completely and utterly insane. Volition's open-world romp wears its heart on its sleeve when it comes to that, revelling in the madness and the havoc you can cause. Well, now if you pre-order the game, you can push that insanity even further, with 'Professor Genki's Super Ethical Reality Climax' goodies straight from the hit game show whose slogan is "murder time, fun time!"

According to the press release, "popular Genki Games include Baby or Cobra, Monkey Money Grab, and Professor Genki's Super Sparkle Lab in which one Steelport resident gets to fight through Genki's booby-trapped laboratory, shooting targets for points and humans just for fun. But look out! Shooting the helpless panda makes everyone sad." Nice.

In Saints Row's world, Professor Genki is shown 31 countries in 13 languages, and you too can get in on the cute crazy, life or death action with 'Professor Genki's Hyper Ordinary Pre-Order Pack'. Here's what you'll get in the Saints Row: The Third pre-order pack:

Professor Genki's Hyper Ordinary Pre-Order Pack includes:

  • Professor Genki's Super Ballistic Man-a-pult: Cruise Steelport in style with this vacuum-action human-cannonball truck. Suck up pedestrians and use them as live ammunition against the forces of evil, and everyone else.
  • Professor Genki's "Octopuss" Cannon: Fire baby octopi onto your enemies' heads! Watch as the octopi massage their scalps and your enemies fight for you! Enemies can be friends too!
  • Professor Genki's Leisure Stunt Suit: The ultimate in comfort and tight-fitting apparel, the Genki Leisure Stunt Suit is perfect for skydiving over Steelport or to wear while ejecting from high-flying fighter jets. Free Genki mask included!
