Cautiously optimistic, but this looks like a disaster. It doesn't look too different from SR3, the story looks like it's gone way more retarded (You're the President now?...what.), AND they're releasing this right before GTAV. I think the fact that it looks so damn similar to 3 is what worries me. I mean, 1 and 2 looked different, and 2 and 3 looked way different. It's just the graphics, but still.

That being said, maybe we'll get a content jump like we did between SR1 and 2.

If that's Shaundi, it means she's not dead. Also, I hope Rebecca Sanabria comes back for the role of the Latina voice. I love her acting.



I'd link to youtube, but it seems like someone flagged all the videos for adult content, which is annoying as hell for those of us who rarely log in.

Also, aside from me wishing Rebecca Sanabria is doing VA for this again, the information under that spoiler is an actual spoiler for SR3. I forget how often spoiler tags aren't used for actual spoilers.

Most people who play SR probably don't give a shit about the story (I do...it's complicated for me), but I want to be nice because I hate being spoiled myself.
>> No. 170652
what we saw Trailer wise was likely most what they had ready for the Dom DLC pack. Also its likely her because that other thing was very unlike Boss as to be a non choice.

>I think the fact that it looks so damn similar to 3 is what worries me. I mean, 1 and 2 looked different, and 2 and 3 looked way different. It's just the graphics, but still.
That's because it was supposed to be a stand alone expansion.
>> No. 170654
It looks like some mad fun.

Truth, Boss is all about loyalty to his friends, he wouldn't sacrifice them just to chase down some washed up wrestler he'd already beaten.
>> No. 170656
Honestly I'm fine with the over the top shit. GTA bores the hell out of me.
>> No. 170662

Fair point, but I want to address this (largely false) dichotomy I see on the internet frequently. There is a middle ground between seriousness and wackiness, and it doesn't have to go too far in either direction.

I'm sure I'll enjoy this game, but I still think SR1 had the best tone in the series. And while it was more serious than its sequels, it *still* had a bunch of goofy shit going on in the background. One of your assassinations in SR1 was a guy in a hotdog suit, and one of the easter egg homies was a guy in a chicken outfit.

It just all seemed better when the game occasionally did something silly instead of wearing it on its sleeve. Anyway, as previously stated, I'm sure it'll at least be a fun game.
>> No. 170665
I mean GTA takes itself too seriously now. I think after San Andreas. Then along came this series and I've loved it. The ridiculousness allows it to be way more creative. Hell in 3 you found yourself tearing through cyberspace, fighting S.H.I.E.L.D., teaming up with Hulk Hogan in the wrestling ring and fighting Zombies.
>> No. 170666
And it made more internal sense as a universe then other sandbox games.

They acknowledge how your character is an inhuman murder machine who can take on impossible odds casually, and still throw plot challenges at you, rather then pretending that you don't casually kill hundreds of swat team members and that those pose a problem by themselves.
>> No. 170687
It went too far in the "wacky" direction. SR2 was perfect. This just looks tryhard and stupid.
>> No. 170694
SR2 sucked because it forced you to do the side stuff. SR3 didn't make that mistake.
>> No. 170695

I thought the side stuff was the best part of SR2! Better than the missions at any rate.


Eh. Different strokes, I guess. IV was more serious, but I dunno if I'd call it *too serious*. The radio, TV, and some of the characters you met were still pretty goofy. I think it was a good tone for a crime game.

Also, as far as what I want from SR4, I want indepth gang customization. Better than what we got in 2. I'm thinking the game could give you about 3 male/female templates and you could dress them up in any clothes you can buy in game. I want to have a biker gang, or maybe even something straight out of The Warriors.
>> No. 170697

The radio was as good as ever but before any mission I had to watch a long, tedious, pathos-laden cutscene. It was awful.

What really turned me off GTAIV, though, was the sex. Not that it was there, but the fact that it was both trying so hard to be shocking and edgy - strip clubs! Sex shops! - while also being so visually sanitized that it came off as grotesquely cartoonish. Although SRIII's handling of sex was definitely cartoonish, it had a sense of audacity and fun that was totally absent from GTAIV.
>> No. 170700
Your friends calling you up to hang out all the time in GTA4 and getting pissed if you turned them down did make them kind of annoying.
>> No. 170701

Oh, that too. The girlfriend mechanic was annoying enough in San Andreas. Why would they think extending it to the entire NPC population would be a good idea?
>> No. 170705
I still haven't beaten GTAIV because the controls just feel crap. Especially the driving. Steering got magnitudes harder, and cops, who are drastically harder to lose, now start chasing you for fender benders.

Taking a cab should not be a better option than driving yourself in a game called Grand Theft Auto.
>> No. 170708

On foot controls were ass, but driving cars in GTAIV was godlike. Dem physics, dat satisfaction when you learn to drift.
>> No. 170728
This game better have Burt Reynolds.
>> No. 170742
SR2 was the living definition of tryhard.

The unrelenting misery of the Brotherhood arc made me actively dislike everyone involved.

And it failed at the serious parts. Even though the fact that Killbane was a seriously weakened opponent for the climax of the game, he still managed to be more threatening than the entire Ultor Corporation, who was less threatening to the Saints than Veteran Child.
>> No. 170745
I think part of that is just the varied level of the Saints in 2 vs Ultor you were a small street gang barely out of the hood facing a massive multinational empire. Though as of Three you are both massive thugs since you now own your Hometown and the conglomerate. To me facing the Syndicate felt more level since I'd already proven myself to be able to go head to head with the big boys and take on a City Directly no pretenses. I think taking on a nation and some Supervillain while were are at it sounds like a nice logical step.
>> No. 170749

Can I just say that as much as I like SR2, the Ronin was the only enemy gang I actually liked?

I would prefer it if the Saints were still a band of gangsters. If you ask me (and no one is because no one cares lol), I would have never made the Saints celebrities. I would have had them take on international crime syndicates (Saints vs a South American drug cartel...why not) and branch out across the world or whatever. Just...anything but aliens at this point.

At the very least, let me like the rival gangs. I mean, yeah, they're my enemies and I'm supposed to like gunning them down, but there's no reason they can't give off a cool vibe as I run them down.
>> No. 170772
Boss, Pierce, Viola, Shaundi, Kinzie. I recognise all of them, but who's the lanky stereep with the emo hair?

Is it the leader of the Deckers? He didn't get killed off and it does looks sort of like him but not quite, If the game is to feature VR he could be useful.
It was hilarious when him and Kinzie were sniping at each other over the comm channels in Third like it was xboxlive.

Well if Shaundi and Viola are around we know they didn't kill off Mayor Reynolds.
I hope Oleg is still large and in charge too.
>> No. 170796

>> No. 170823
>I think part of that is just the varied level of the Saints in 2 vs Ultor you were a small street gang barely out of the hood facing a massive multinational empire.
And yet, that massive multinational empire was less threatening than a skeevy DJ with a bad haircut.
>> No. 170824
that part of my thinking street gang vs Empire doesn't feel that personal while Empire directly called out by another Empire feels like its got more to give. Makes me wonder what 4 is going to do.

Better than releasing it after?
Not to mention, the people who buy won aren't necessarily the same people who buy the other? I mean after not even being able to finish GTA4 I'm not too exited about 5.
>> No. 170926

1. GTAV already looks much better than IV
2. It's ONE MONTH before GTA V

Considering the sales for SR2 didn't come anywhere close to matching GTAIV (and those were months apart in 2008), it seems silly to release the game RIGHT BEFORE your major competitor is releasing theirs. SR is drifting in its own direction, but it still shares a fanbase (namely, the people who like open world crime simulators, such as myself) who are going to have to decide between the two.

I don't disregard those who will double dip, but I don't know if they represent everyone.
>> No. 170927

I also acknowledge the inverse of the double dippers might be true, before anyone points that out. I should have said that the first time around.
>> No. 170928
Well the graphics look a little behind (as they usually are for SR), but I'm liking how this is shaping up personally. The last one was pretty much a super villain empire emulator and this one seems to take it to its logical conclusion.

Found the storyline blurb

>In Saints Row IV, the head honcho of the Saints has been elected to the Presidency of the United States. But the Saints are just getting started. Now the larger-than-life insanity of the Saints series gets a new twist with a catastrophic alien invasion, and the aliens have transported the Saints to a bizarro-Steelport simulation. Wield gargantuan superpowers and fight to free humanity from alien granddaddy Zinyak’s mental grasp. Escape the simulation that’s trapped the Saints crew, or die trying.

>Saints Row IV lets players delve into an arsenal of alien weaponry and technology that will turn each Saint into an ultimate entity of destruction. Utilize out-of-this-world superpowers to fight all the way to the top. With intensified action and enhanced customization, players can use their newfound superpowers and leap over buildings, outrun the fastest sports cars, or send enemies flying with telekinesis in the greatest, most insane installment of Saints Row yet.

Dunno how much this is from the DLC blurbs and if its been updated since then. Would so love to be Rolling around Washington instead of Steelport.
