The president of the united states

Once every generation, a work of art comes along that changes everything. It’s so powerful and so moving that it reveals new emotional depths in anyone that experiences it. Basically, The Last of Us can get bent — because Saints Row IV is almost here.

Developer Volition released the latest trailer for its open-world crime circus today. The video reveals actor Keith David, the Saint’s Row gang’s plan goal, and the President of the United States’ nude body. It’s bananas, and yet Shawshank Redemption-like Oscar-baiting music plays over the whole thing.

Saints Row IV is basically the Citizen Kane of video games. …

It debuts on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on Aug. 20 for $60.

Trailers like this one help dissolve any doubt that Volition can repeat the success of Saints Row: The Third. Check it out:
