Monday September 19th (international talk like a pirate day), is one of only two days in the year that players of Saints Row 2
can play online to earn the "Arr..." badge towards the game's Kingpin achievement
To earn the Kingpin achievement, you will need to earn thirty of the thirty-two badges available in the game. Twelve of the badges are related to rank progression, whilst the rest can be boosted in custom game modes.
Thanks to everybody who suggested this story!
