Saints Row: The Third won't have a fart in a jar

0

The Saints Row series is, by far, one of the most ludicrously extreme franchises out there. Unfortunately, however, even Volition has standards. According to the studio, trying to censor Saints Row: The Third has been like attempting to define pornography ... oh, and they also won't have farts in jars.

"It's like defining porn. I can't define it, but I know when I see it," said senior producer Greg Donovan in the latest Game Informer. "Not every crazy weapon idea that gets thrown out at meetings ends up getting used. With some ideas, we're like 'that's not over the top... even we know that's distasteful' to the point where I don't even want to tell you what the ideas were. Put it that way."

Yes, one of those rejected weapon ideas was a fart in a jar, wielded like an explosive grenade. It would cause enemies to vomit, rendering them helpless in a fight. I don't know how that was deemed unacceptable in a game that lets you spray shit at people. 

One day I'd love a list of rejected Saints Row ideas. Something tells me it would be like reading the Necronomicon, and one would go instantly mad from even glimpsing it.
