Update: Deep Silver has released the third Saints Row IV "Hail to the Chief" short trailer of the week. Naturally, the trailer is ridiculous, but there's also something productive -- a brand new weapon. The gun, which looks like it came out of a Men in Black movie, shoots a projectly that ricochets between enemies. Something something kill 10 birds with one stone. Check it out this third "Hail to the Chief" trailer for yourself, in addition to the second one, which we forgot was going to be released on Wednesday.

What can I say about Saints Row IV that won't come out as 90% gibberish and 10% maniacal cackling? After returning from Comic-Con where the Saints Row IV panel was by and large my favorite event at the show, all I can say is be honest with yourself. Look at this game, see it for what it is, and be very, very excited. If that doesn't work, check out this short "Hail to the Chief" trailer, the first of three to be released this week, and be enlightened.
In this "Animal Protection Act" short, a follow-up to the "Saints Force One" trailer released about a month ago, our President plummets to the Earth wearing a... cat costume. He then uses his smash power to shrink everyone around him and then makes a sound like blowing bubbles with your mouth just submerged in the bath tub. The imagery is rather startling and may give children nightmares.
Expect two more Saints Row IV "Hail to the Chief" short trailers later this week, on Wednesday and Friday. Then look forward to Saints Row IV's release on August 20 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. We are not prepared, Johnny Gat save us.
