Weekend Confirmed 175 - Saints Row: The Third, Disney Infinity

Jeff Cannata is still in the outback, learning to play the didgeridoo. That leaves host Garnett Lee back at the homestead with The Escapist's Andrea Rene and Shacknews' Andrew Yoon and Ozzie Mejia to continue bringing you the best in games. This week, Garnett discovers Saints Row: The Third for the first time and he tells you why he's not completely enthused by it. Talk shifts to the upcoming Super Smash Bros. and Nintendo's bizarre aversion to YouTube, before Andrea talks about some of the big games on-hand at this year's San Diego Comic-Con. The show ends with a big discussion about the Xbox One's recent policy announcements before sending you into the weekend with a new round of Finishing Moves.

Saints Row mod tools coming from community collaboration with Volition

Saints Row mod tools coming from community collaboration with Volition

Given how bizarre Saints Row: The Third already is, mod tools could only result in the game becoming more sensible, more polite. Adding a selection of conservative businesswear, perhaps, or speed cameras to keep you driving safely.

We'll get to find out in a while, as developer Volition is working with Saints Row modders to put together proper mod tools. The mod community has so far been running on tools it worked out and put together itself, and shiny new tools should allow people to add new clothes and missions, and even alter the world.

THQ evaluating Linux following Humble Bundle feedback

The Humble THQ Bundle may have raked in more money than almost another other Humble Bundle, but not everyone was thrilled with Humble's first AAA bundle. It was Windows-only, lacking the customary Mac and Linux versions, and also busted the 'no DRM' rule with Steamworks games. Pleasingly, counting the money isn't the only action THQ is taking after that, as the publisher's now looking at making Linux editions of games.

In what seems to be an odd move, Humble Bundle has teamed with publisher THQ to offer seven PC games in its traditional pay-what-you-want packs. It marks the first time Humble has bundled games from a large publisher, while packaging Windows-only games and using the Steam DRM.

Saints Row: The Third 'Full Package' announced

Saints Row: The Third 'Full Package' announced

In case you haven't noticed, it's usually pretty smart money-management to wait a year or so on new games. Take Saints Row: The Third, for example. Sure, you could have bought it new for sixty bucks at launch, but having held off on the gonzo-action game means that soon you'll be able to get the newly-announced "Full Package" instead.

Titillating 'Penthouse Pack' hits Saints Row: The Third today

Titillating 'Penthouse Pack' hits Saints Row: The Third today

Sometimes when I'm bombing down Stillwater's main thoroughfare in a stolen car, looking for hapless victims to bludgeon with a huge purple sex toy, I often opine about how much classier the experience would be if I had a Penthouse Pet riding shotgun with me. Okay, not really. But should I ever change my mind, the 'Penthouse Pack'--released today for Saints Row: The Third--should fulfill that particular urge quite handily.

Among the cacophony of high-larious pranks this April Fool's Day, THQ teased another piece of content for Saints Row: The Third.
