Saints Row 4 video thrusts the president into the 1950s

Friday, 9th August 2013 17:59 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Saints Row 4 is full of bat-shit crazy scenarios. Don’t believe me? Hows this for an example: the aliens are trying to break the will of the people they abduct, so they toss them into “Nightmare Scenarios”. Yeah, sounds all kinds of odd and just ripe for shenanigans doesn’t it?

In the video, the president and leader of the Saints has been thrust into his own personal Nightmare Scenario: the 1950s. Could be worse: at least the era had cool cars, people dressed nice before leaving the house, and everything was extremely “nuclear family”.

This does not sit well with our president though. See how or if he can break out of this horrible situation above. You won’t see this anywhere else for the time being.

If you are feeling extra froggy today, be sure and have a look at the opening mission we posted earlier this week – if you missed it.

Saints Row 4 launches August 20 cross North and Latin America and August 23 worldwide on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.

    So, Stephany likes nuclear families! :)

    Also, judging by the dining room/kitchen moment, this game is going to make it possible to depict a lesbian marriage. In the 1950s. Excellent. :)

    @2: Wikipedia says the nuclear family is a mother, a father and their children, and that’s about it. Though the typical one I’ve seen in pop culture is a mother, father, and two kids.

    Well then. I actually like how they dealt with that, it was amusing, but it certainly captured the claustrophobic conservatism that was rampant in the American ’50s. And it made its point with a grin, too, so there were a few laughs to be had.

    The more I see of this, the more I like it.
