Porn Star Tera Patrick Takes on Role of "Special Producer" for Saints Row 2

From the press release:
...world famous adult film star TERA PATRICK will be working as 'special producer' on the highly anticipated open-world action video game Saints Row 2. Known as one the best "finishers" worldwide, Patrick's role as ‘special producer’ will bring her one-of-a-kind special touch to the project as the game nears release on October 14.
One of the best "finishers" worldwide? Her "one-of-a-kind special touch"? At least they have the sense to put the bullshit position of "special producer" in quotes. Interested? Check out a Grand Theft Auto IV-bashing trailer for Saints Row 2 after the jump.


You know, as far as I'm concerned this is a really effective trailer. One of my biggest problems with GTA IV is that you can't do anything. Don't believe the "you can do anything" hype. When it comes down to it, you can shoot people, you can steal cars, and you can participate in mind-numbingly dull recreational activities. The possibilities are extremely limited. So even though the Saints Row series is a clone of the GTA style, seeing a trailer like this that tells me the game is "GTA IV with options" actually makes me interested in a game that I would have scoffed at before. Either that or Tera Patrick's "finishing" skills and "special touch" have won me over.
