Saints Row IV free on Steam this weekend

It’s a fine and beautiful/miserably hot Saturday morning and you have the whole day in front of you. Do you do some healthy yard work? Visit your loving grandma? Get that bit of shopping done you’ve been procrastinating for ages? No, sir or madam or salutation of choice; you do not! You log your ass onto Steam and download Saints Row IV, which is free until the wee hours of Monday morning.

In Saints Row IV, disappointingly still not subtitled “row harder”, the boss has become president of the Unites States, which makes just about as much sense as anything that ever happens there and seems far more likely than expensive major social reforms in the face of angry opposition from confused old white men, which is really real. Just when things are at their raddest, aliens invade, trapping our hero in a virtual version of Steelport.

What results is pure madness, best enjoyed in co-op with an equally delighted buddy. Don’t take it too seriously and thou shalt be well rewarded. If you like what you see, you can purchase it for ever at 50% off.

Not only is it cheaper at $20 currently at Amazon, but being the US version it comes uncut – whereas if you buy from steam (at $5 more to boot) you’re getting the baby censored version ;P

Can the Amazon one be purchased without a VPN?

 

Awesome! Thanks for the Amazon link.

Yep, never needed to use one.

 

Don’t even really need to buy it, the game is short enough you can complete it in a day. Only reason to buy it is if you plan on playing it sometime in the future again. Or just to load up for stupid fun in a sandbox.

 

nirvesta,

Just make a new account with a US address. Can be anything. They just give you the key and you can then enter it into Steam or whatever.

Misleading title is misleading.
