Yes, we do know there’s still a couple of months left in the actual release, but a self-explanatory achievements list does help the Saints Row fans to quench a bit of their thirst.
Complete with expected doses of in game jokes and a little touch of humor in their titles every now and then, the trophy list looks ludicrously interesting. And that’s just not it, for those of us who were yearning to know more about how the game might unravel; the extensive list might give away enough to gesture more than a couple of things.
For instance, the “back in the day” would take you to spend quality time with your homies –a little away from the alien sprawled world.
Alternatively, where it would ask you to jump the full length from atop one building to another – yes you read that right, don’t get confused just yet because it gets better! For instance, using super powers to kill a thousand aliens would mean you have completed “I Am Become Death.”
So yeah, you have had it now; the game will house superpowers too! This means using something that is called the Fire Buff Super Power or the Freeze Blast Super Power the use of which could get you the rather comical achievement called “Chill Out.”
Nevertheless, look deeper into the extensive list, and you learn a lot about what the game has to offer. Here’s the list if you’d want to skim:

The superpowers come into play at multiple places. This would happen when the lead character, now the President is taken into a virtual Steelport that denies all the laws of physics.
You run faster than cars, use superpowers and jump buildings like it’s just another thing. But outside the Steelport you save your crew and the Vice President from aliens on your own.
I believe the self invoke humor and surprisingly welcome absurdity of the game would keep the fans excited enough for the next two months until the game launches on August 20th.
Which of the achievements would you go after first?
