The following trailer may cause mild seizures. Here’s the latest promo for Volition’s upcoming Saints Row sequel, featuring a faction led by an internet tough guy:

There’s been reasonable concern about Saints Row: The Third holding back “40 Weeks*” of DLC, but every trailer thus far makes it look like a genuine competitor to November’s Skyrim mega-release.  They’re lots of fun, but the Saints games have always lived in the shadow of GTA. Much like the incredible Just Cause 2, though, this one appears to stretch the potential of the sandbox in creative ways.  If you’re old enough to have played Tank in an arcade, you probably cracked a big smile at the 1:10 mark.

Saints Row: The Third releases on November 15th – for now, at least.

*Does anybody know what “40 weeks of DLC” actually means?
