Sure, the Saints Row: The Thirddildo bat was cool. However, today is the day of the tentacle. Saints Row IV, in its self-one-upmanship, needed to raise the ante and thus the tentacle bat was born. What's more, a team of special effects wizards went and built the thing in real life.
It kind of reminds me of when Mike Rowe built a fiberglass shark on Discovery's Dirty Jobs. It's actually pretty neat to see how this got made, and the final product undoubtedly trounces the promotional dildo bat that made its way to various outlets. It even has lights. It's tenta-cool. Though had they kept it purple, the hints of Ultros would be overwhelming.
Are you team tentacle bat or team dildo bat? Or is there a better weapon to use in Saints Row IV while you scream the lyrics to Biz Markie's "Just a Friend" at the top of your lungs?
