Saints Row 2

The latest issue of the german magazine GamePro has a "world exclusive" story about Saints Row 2.

THQ wants to give Volition enough time to finish the game this time because of GTA IV.
Each character in the game has full access to the clothing palette. Want a "ghetto-brother" dressed in lingerie? No problem. That's why the character-editor is called "freak generator" internally.
The game is set 15 years after Saints Row 1, many areas changed. To enter some new areas you have to use a boat or a plane. There will also be a helicopter
Inspired by fans, the developers want to implement stunts as "mini-achievments", similar to the gaps in Tony Hawk's.
You have to control your balance while car-surfing with the analog-stick now.
Co-op mode via Xbox Live or local network.
You can use other characters as a human shield now. Also you can shoot a pedestrian in the balls, then rubbernecks will gather around that person. This way you can hinder your haunters.
You can also place limpet mines on cars... or walls... or on the backs of your enemies.
You can improve your residence, this is shown as artwork in this scan (http://bp1.blogger.com/_qGtGl4NFC8s/RxIwmHNppPI/AAAAAAAAHsQ/awvk1LMuPgg/s1600-h/04.jpg) on the upper left.
The graphics improved a little and there shall be no more pop-ups. Also the weather effects looks "impressive", heat effects, rain etc. When it's raining the pedestrians use umbrellas.
