    You’ve got less than two days to get a free copy of Saints Row 2, so hit up the GOG site if you’re interested. Saints Row IV: Game of the Century Edition and Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell, which are now DRM-free for the first time, are also available for a measly $4.99 and $3.74, respectively.

    GOG today launches DRM-free versions of the two most recent Saints Row games, and to celebrate, it's giving away an earlier title for free. Over the next two days, you can add Saints Row 2 to your library for free. This is a DRM-free version of the game, meaning you don't have to use GOG or its Steam-esque Galaxy client in order to play it. Simply claim it on GOG's website before the deadline--this Saturday, April 22, at 3 AM PT/6 AM ET/11 AM GMT--and it's yours to keep forever.

    Free is always good. Thanks for heads-up.

    Also these are available on GOG Connect if you already own them on Steam.

    yup, I grabbed it on GoG first then found it to be also free on Steam (which works for me as I have 3 and 4 on there)

    Save some bandwidth. The port is garbage unfortunately. Though a patch did fix much of it iirc.

    I really liked Saint's Row 2's story. The driving is crap though. Even with mods it kind of fixes the driving but still is a nightmare. Saint's Row 2/3 were the last of the funny Saint's Row games. I will admit that Gat Out of Hell was not that bad but played like a console game from Sega. Saint's Row 4 was kind of interesting but they destroyed the series with it. Bad story, bad script. Saint's Row was never meant to be a copy of Tron.

    It's one of the worst ports ever made. Maybe GOG fixed it up some, who knows.

    Get the Gentlemen of the Row mod. It fixes some of the issues at least.
