Free DLC Homie CheapyD Coming to Saints Row: The Third on OnLive

THQ announced in a blog post that a new homie for Saints Row: The Third named CheapyD will be included for free to the game on OnLive in a compatibility patch, which will be automatically added for you.

More info from the THQ blog post:

Over a year ago, CheapyD from CheapAssGamer.com was the winner of a charity auction to voice an NPC in Saints Row: The Third. Outside of that single sentence, he had no idea what was about to happen over the course of the game’s development. What started off as a few lines attached to a random NPC in the city of Steelport began to blossom into a much more engaging role.

When initially implemented into the game, CheapyD’s voice was barely heard while playing through the game, so we knew we could do better. After a second recording session and some quick Q&A with CheapyD, we came up with the perfect solution. Turn CheapyD into a FREE downloadable homie for everyone to enjoy starting on January 17th!

Featuring a few hundred unique lines and exclamations, CheapyD will be released on the streets of Steelport to join you as your Strap It On in Saints Row: The Third. In order to get CheapyD, you will have had to unlock Shaundi’s Ex-boyfriend’s apartment (This comes after the assault on the armory), and also follow the instructions below for your platform of choice.

It’s been an absolute blast working with CheapyD and integrating him into the game, instead of just using his voice. Everyone at Volition thanks him again for making his charity donation, and we hope all of you enjoy roaming the streets with CheapyD at your side.
