In my mind, Saints Row has always had some of the best character customization options. I can’t think of any other game that allows you to take over the streets as an obese Asian woman, and then later decide to become a skinny White man through an ugodly amount of plastic surgery, all while shooting up fellow gang-bangers and taking over a pretty ridiculous city. It’s just a really fun time.
THQ obviously knows that character creation is one of the greatest assets of the franchise, so in order to promote the upcoming Saints Row: The Third ,THQ just announced the Initiation Station. The Initation Station can be accessed through purchase of Red Faction: Armageddon and it allows players to customize their characters prior to the game’s release. All that is known so far is that the Initiation Station will have some wacky options, will be available to download on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, and that it will be released “in advance” of Saints Row: The Third.
