According to official canon, the world of Saints Row: The Third is besotted with a game show called Professor Genki's Super Ethical Reality Climax, which sees contestants partaking of "friendly games of life and death".
Players can score "fabulous prizes and continued life" or "less desirable outcomes" while trying their luck at games like Baby or Cobra and Professor Genki's Super Sparkle Lab.
In the spirit of this delightful piece of culture, if you pre-order Saints Row: The Third, you'll receive the Professor Genki's Hyper Ordinary Pre-Order Pack, which includes a number of exclusive items detailed below.
