Saints Row 3 Standalone Expansion Plans

THQ announces Saints Row The Third: Enter The Dominatrix, a standalone expansion coming this fall for Volition's open world action sequel. Saying this is "no longer an April Fool's dream," they promise "the most requested gameplay features from the Saints Row community: freaking super powers." Here's a bit:

Enter the Dominatrix picks up immediately following the events of Saints Row: The Third. For centuries, alien warlord Zinyak has eyed Earth and its precious natural resources and females with a watchful eye. As he prepares an armada for invasion, he has only one worry: the Third Street Saints.

Once a simple street gang from Stilwater, the Saints have evolved into a global empire, replete with bombastic TV advertising and tasteful consumer products, the kind of TV advertising and consumer products that would give any alien warlord pause. Clearly, the Saints are the biggest badasses on Earth.

Now, in order to prepare his forces for domination, Zinyak captures the leader of the Saints and imprisons him in an elaborate virtual reality simulation. This simulation program looks and feels like Steelport, but it is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth. Here, you are a slave. Welcome... to the Dominatrix.

More details and a first look at Saints Row: The Third – Enter the Dominatrix will be available this summer. Make sure you're following Saints Row on Twitter and Facebook to stay up to date with the latest.

However the discussion was whether SR3 ran at 30FPS or 60

The discussion was whether or not the game was properly optimized for ATI cards, which it isn't. You managed to get a decent framerate through brute force (Crossfire 6870s) but you shouldn't need to. Not for a port of a console game designed for 6-year-old hardware. If you have an Nvidia card, you get better performance with weaker hardware. And that's the whole problem. The game should run just as well on ATI cards as it does on Nvidia cards but that's not the case.

Sadly that's why I don't bother with ATI anymore. If it's not a driver problem, it's a lazy developer problem. Over the last 15 years that I've owned 3d graphics cards, Nvidia has consistently given me the fewest problems. If things change at some point, I'll reconsider, but slightly better performance in a couple of games isn't worth the uncertainty.

I don't know that it makes much difference. Over the last several years I've heard a lot of complaining about Nvidia cards too. I've had both Geforce and Radeon cards over the years, and aside from one card that stopped being able to handle anything but regular 2d desktop stuff, I haven't had any real problems.
