    Saints Row The Third was a pretty awesome game (which sucks, because it means I can't call it Saints Row The Turd). It gleefully embraced the series' goofy, silly side and just ran with it, with zombies, a roaming gang of nefarious luchadores, and Burt Reynolds. It was a game that didn't take itself too seriously, which many appreciated after GTA's turn towards darker, grittier themes.

    The game was also a rare financial success for then-struggling, now-dissolved THQ. Ever since the franchise was sold off to Deep Silver (publisher of Dead Island), it's been all quite on the West-side front.

    Until, perhaps, now.

    You better watch out, guys - they're going to be PAX-ing heat.

    This project is supposed to have been in the works for quite some time. Evidently, Volition was working on an expansion for the third game titled "Enter the Dominatrix". THQ was so impressed (or so desperate to have another Saints Row game on shelves) that they cancelled the expansion and instead had it folded into the fourth game. If this rumor is true, than it seems that the project is still alive and kicking despite THQ's unfortunate demise.

    As a Saints Rowman (as all fans should be called), the last thing I'd want to see is a rushed game, so I'm hoping that the team at Volition has a handle on the project. Here's hoping we get something more saintly than taint-ly.

    It will be titled "Saint's Row - The Fifth" just to throw everyone off

    Yeah it was the first PAX show they held (the one East came a few years later and I believe there is to be one in Australia before long)- they usually hold them somewhere in Western Washington state in late August/early September. Nowadays the western one usually goes by the name PAX prime (there is also one only for developers called PAX Dev) but most will still refer to it as PAX.

    As for the matter at hand I have never actually played a Saints Row game, I keep meaning to but never do.

    I liked the game a little but it was too wacky. Nice cinematics and environment changes.
