OnLive Released Saints Row: The Third - The Full Package and Saints Row: The Third - The Full Package Upgrade in the US - Organizes a Contest to Celebrate

OnLive released Saints Row: The Third - The Full Package to the marketplace. It is priced at $49.99 ($34.99 PlayPack). Saints Row: The Third - The Full Package includes the original Saints Row: The Third game and all the add-on content that was released on OnLive to date which includes all three downloadable mission packs and more than 30 bonus DLC items. With every weapon, every vehicle, every outfit, go over the top, off the reservation, and to places where no decent game should go. Strap it on, all the way.

Altogether the add-on content is worth $62.81 and with the base Saints Row: The Third game that costs $39.99 added it's worth $102.80. Of course it's debatable if the add-on content is really worth the money as some of the DLC content that THQ opted to release is how shall we say... inadequate for what it's priced.

OnLive also released the Saints Row: The Third - The Full Package Upgrade for owners of the base Saints Row: The Third game to bring it on par with Saints Row: The Third - The Full Package. It is priced at $24.99 ($17.49 PlayPack).

OnLive gamers in the UK and Belgium will be able to buy Saints Row: The Third - The Full Package and the Saints Row: The Third - The Full Package Upgrade next week on Thursday, October 15th.

THQ has developed quite an interesting relationship with porn stars. Below you can see former porn star Sasha Grey working hard to earn some money for THQ. Well, even pron is good enough for the prude games industry if you're in dire financial straits like THQ is.

Apart from the base Saints Row: The Third game, the following add-ons are part of the Saints Row: The Third - The Full Package on OnLive:

In light of the release of Saints Row: The Third - The Full Package, OnLive is running a contest on Facebook. They want to see the most ridiculous characters you've created since the base Saints Row: The Third game launched last year. Most awesomest Brag Clip or screencap gets a free PlayPass from OnLive. Judging is completely subjective, and based in whatever they feel like, but extra points will be awarded to those entries referencing current events, so get to work on your Barack Obama. Captions aren't mandatory but feel free to put your spin on it.

To keep this contest above-board and legal, anyone can enter by accessing the game via the direct launch link or in-service free trial. No account creation is necessary if you choose to launch it directly. Obviously those with a PlayPass for any version of Saints Row: The Third have the advantage of having evolved their character over time. You can share your Brag Clip or screencapped masterpieces within the comments of the OnLive Facebook contest post, or add OnLiveNate to your friends in the OnLive service and share it with him.

To kick it off, here's a little hotness that OnLive found crawling the Brag Clips in the service. Credit to adsdsdsd for this video of his girlfriend... She's a keeper!

Saints Row: The Third is an open world action game published by THQ and developed by Volition.

Years after taking Stilwater for their own, the Third Street Saints have evolved from street gang to household brand name, with Saints sneakers, Saints energy drinks and Johnny Gat bobblehead dolls all available at a store near you. The Saints are kings of Stilwater, but their celebrity status has not gone unnoticed. The Syndicate, a legendary criminal fraternity with pawns in play all over the globe, has turned its eye on the Saints and demands tribute.

Refusing to kneel to the Syndicate, you take the fight to Steelport, a once-proud metropolis reduced to a struggling city of sin under Syndicate control. Take a tank skydiving, call in a satellite-targeted airstrike on a Mexican wrestling gang, and defend yourself against a highly-trained military force using only a sex toy in the most outlandish gameplay scenarios ever seen, igniting a city-wide war that will set Steelport on fire.

Now Steelport is ripe for the taking, and it's up to you to make the city your own. Mold the skyline based on your choices, outfit your crew in classy gangster gear or furry costumes, and make life-or-death decisions that will change Steelport, and the Saints, forever. This is now your city. These are now your rules. Strap it on.

  • Over The Top - Like a lapdance from a porn star, the action is naughty, fun, and better than anything you're getting at home.
  • City of Sin - Disrupt and dismantle the Syndicate stranglehold on weapons, cybercrime, and sex trades. Discover the secrets of Steelport, where there is action on every street corner, for better or, more likely, worse.
  • Weapons of Crass Destruction - It's one thing to defeat your enemies. It's another to humiliate them. Hover jets, human cannonball cars and sex-toy warfare are all part of the fun.
  • Co-op Madness - Give naked skydiving a try, landing in your partner's flaming pickup as you make a suicide run toward a heavily armed Syndicate brothel.
