Anybody here like Saint's Row 2? I'm not really a fan of the "THUG LYFE" aspect but making a cute girl character and having massive kung-fu brawls with pimps was always fun. Anyway, Saint's Row 3 is supposed to be premiering at the Spike VGAs tomorrow
Expand all images
>> No. 322 [Edit]
I'm also not crazy about "THUG LYFE" but I thought the game was extremely awesome and fun.
It was more of a sequel to gtasa then 4was, and was the game 4 should have been I think, actually fun.
Maybe I'll try playing it again with a little girl main character or something, last time I played it I made the character to resemble myself.
not to many games out there with this level of character customization, not on consoles anyway.
It's a grate game for mindless silly sandbox gameplay and action.
Also, I never played part one, but it didn't seem as if that made much of a big difference.
>> No. 323 [Edit]
My only fear is they'll take away the ability to make a female character. I really doubt they would, but who knows. I certainly wouldn't buy it if they did
>> No. 325 [Edit]
I made a complete neckbeard. Nothing like seeing a basement dweller with sandals, jeans shorts and a ragged kawaii uguu~ shirt living the gangsta life.

The Spike VGAs, by the way, are the biggest load of bullshit in the industry. Based on nominees I can already tell that RDR will win best PS3 game, Halo will win best 360 game, and Black ops will win GOTY.

....and they didn't even show saints row 3. I suffered through that whole show...for nothing.

Also nice sexism on making a spectacle of the best male voice award and not even mentioning the best female voice awards. Fuck Spike so hard

My SR2 character was pretty cute. Also Spike is really terrible, yeah
>> No. 338 [Edit]
Do they allow characters which look nothing like the OP's picture?
>> No. 341 [Edit]
Yeah. My character was a purple haired girl in thigh highs, a skirt, and a leather jacket (also shades, can't forget shades). You can also be totally nude (with censored privates of course), which makes cutscenes pretty funny.
>> No. 389 [Edit]
What I don't get is they were apparently ready to go for the spike vgas and pulled it at the last second to promote something else, yet we still haven't gotten any SR3 info. You think they'd just post whatever they were going to do on their site or something

I don't know if I should get SR3 for PC or Xbox. If I got it on the PC I might be able to play with some brohnos (also modding), BUT the PC port of SR2 was apparently really bad. On the Xbox, I could play with my friend who I played SR2 with, but I don't really talk to him anymore in the first place.

PC means mods, and playing with people from the TC group. The only downside was maybe it will be a shitty port, but the devs are making the PC version in-house (unlike SR2) so that's probably not going to happen.

After looking around a bit it turns out that there will be a "sex appeal" slider in character creation that makes your breasts big/small. It's dumb that small breasts = no sex appeal but that's western gaming for you. For male characters it determines their penis size, so when you run around naked you can have the censor blur go to your knees

The guy who made the gentlemen of the row mod for PC SR2 has been contacted by Volition, asking if he wants to get involved with the PC version of SR3 in some way. He's speculating that it might be SDK-related, which means SR3 could have modding capability right out of the gate.

Another video, this one of the entire second mission. The only thing I don't like is the placeholder main character they use, since he is neither a cute girl with pink hair nor a 400 pound black tranny with a traffic cone on his or her head, and everyone knows that's the true way to play saints row

I found this japanese commercial for SR2. Better than the american ones, I say!
>> No. 4167 [Edit]
I picked up the PC version of SR2 and what people said about it being a terrible port are true. However, the experience can be enjoyable if you have 2 things:

1. Gentlemen of the Row Mod (

This mod fixes some stuff (what exactly I don't know since I didn't play without it) and adds all kind of new items and features. It's such a good mod that the guy who made it was asked by the company if he wanted to be involved with the port of SR3.

2. Powertools (

Odds are you will have the speed bug ( This fixes it.

I also got a completed save game, but only because I already beat the game on consoles and really didn't want to redo everything.

>You can adjust your characters sex appeal, which translate to either giving yourself a really giant penis or humungous breasts. The naughty bits are censored, but with that crappy distorted pixel effect so you can kind of make things out still. And of course, physics apply so you'll see your giant dick swinging around like a record (baby) or your breasts bouncing around like a kangaroo inside of a bounce house in outer space.

Oh god
>> No. 4282 [Edit]
what effect does this have on the game?
Do they have some sort of dating system?
does it maybe change what peds say on the streets near you like in gtasa with their sex appeal thing?

Just cosmetic probably, like all the customization options were in SR2. You could play the game as a morbidly obese woman with a british man voice wearing a giant hotdog suit and nobody would say a thing.
>> No. 4286 [Edit]
I hope the slider doesn't just go from normal to enormous, since I was looking forward to having flat/small boobs ;_;

It's a western game though, so I wouldn't be surprised

It's weird because this is what the car looks like, so I'm not sure what they mean. Anyway all this "wacky" japanese stuff makes me hopeful that maybe we will get some japanese schoolgirl outfit options, and I will make my entire gang wear them. Even the men.
>> No. 4305 [Edit]
Probably just a stupid stereotype, thinking all animated porn is made of rainbows and random acid trip like wtf, and cats?

also, they say that car along with other Japanese stuff, is only available for preorder.
so what do you think the chances are of them showing up as a mod or something for people that didn't preorder?
>> No. 4306 [Edit]
I thought the stereotype for animated porn was tentacles everywhere though

>so what do you think the chances are of them showing up as a mod or something for people that didn't preorder?

Really good. Probably going to be one of the first mods there are since it would be so simple
>> No. 4307 [Edit]
Also just that car, an octopus gun, and a stunt suit are pre-order DLC. The actual activity related to the japanese stuff is all part of the game regardless
>> No. 4308 [Edit]
Well, for the record, the Japanese stereotype in SR2 was Yakuza's on bikes and cheap imports, so I think the stuff in this will be kind of silly too.
>> No. 4309 [Edit]
yeah but we're not talking about something that was said or done in game, this was something from a review/preview of the game.
>> No. 4310 [Edit]
Yeah but they were a stereotype of Japanese crime. The whole Professor Genki thing is more of the "Oh those wacky Japanese" kind of stereotype. Not that I care, as long as I can wear a serafuku and can pretend I'm a mahou shoujo who rides a hoverbike and wields a giant dildo as a magic weapon
>> No. 4320 [Edit]
Aren't they also stereotyping Hispanics with the whole wrestler thing?
well, who cares, all I care about is when I can freaking play this already!
>> No. 4321 [Edit]
Not really, since if it's anything like SR2 then there will be people of all races and genders in the gangs. The world of Saint's Row is very tolerant!

Also it comes out on November 15th, maybe with a preload earlier than that since I think it's steamworks
>> No. 4387 [Edit]
Video that actually shows a female character doing stuff (skip to 7:00)

Things of note:

-"average" on the boob slider is 50%, so flat chests are almost certainly in

-Tons of skin tones

-There's a hairstyle simply named "anime". Maybe we really will get japanese school outfits?

-Hoverbike flies around like a jet, and has lasers

-Clothing still has no gender restrictions

-If you choose to actually carjack a person instead of just booting them out via a flying kick through the window, it looks a little more cinematic.

-There's hair physics now, so long hair/ponytails won't look like shit anymore

-The person playing is the most stereotypically german person ever (made a big boobed blond who they later buy a barmaid outfit!)

Correction: This video only shows a tiny bit of the game (starts around 7:40), and it shows that 0% boobs doesn't equal flat. ;_;

Boobs have physics now, at least. In the second game is was really weird to have huge boobs that are stiff as rocks.

I don't really see what the big deal is with the flat chests, if it's not in the game, it seems like it would be something easy to make into a mod.
It's just a matter of increasing the limits on the slider is all right?
>> No. 4588 [Edit]
Well it's not really a big deal, for me it's just more of a "western culture, sigh" kind of thing. Won't hamper my enjoyment of the game at all.

Watch this mission become a store-exclusive preorder DLC.
>> No. 4599 [Edit]
Nah, the guys in that mission are one of the main gangs in the game and I doubt what looks like the final boss of them would be DLC. Also I don't think there's store-specific preorder shit (yet...), except for things like bobbleheads and junk. There's the octopus gun and cannon car preorder stuff, but that's for preorders everywhere
>> No. 4600 [Edit]
As I was watching the video, I couldin't help but think they might do something like that with it.
They haven't said anything about the gang showcased in that video before this, so it's very suspicious.

Yep, Saints Row: The Third's roster of character voices includes a zombie option, and it's utterly brilliant. Cut scenes and mid-mission chatter pan out the same way, just with incomprehensible gargling noises in place of the usual gangsta vernacular. Don't worry, you can always leave on the subtitles.

>Reaching the Escort mission it was soon clear that everything really has been exaggerated. Rather than take a hooker and her clients on a cruise, as in the past games, this time it was a fully grown pet tiger that needed a ride around town. With the giant animal in the passenger seat of my sports car, the mission was to take the wild cat for a ride and return with my face still intact. To try and stop me were two anti-animal cruelty vans and the tiger itself, who didn’t appear very appreciative of my driving and would often swipe for my face with its huge paws, causing me to momentarily lose control of the vehicle.

The only bad news about this game is that they are already planning tons of release-day DLC (mostly clothes/vehicles) that are undoubtedly already on the disk. Probably because their last game (red faction armageddon) was a huge commercial failure and they are trying to make up for it by squeezing every drop they can out of this.

Was thinking of replaying saints row 2, I got a copy for ps3 but was wondering, Is it worth bothering with to download the PC version and the patches for it to make it not suck like people say it does?
Are there any decent mods or anything the pc version has the console version doesn't?
>> No. 5056 [Edit]
the gentlemen of the row mod adds tons of things, like guns (such as a nuke launcher), clothes (mostly things that NPCs wear that normally isn't availabe to you) and new buyable houses (like that giant tower). Whether those things make it worth or not is up to you. Also even though there's patches that fix the problems, it's still pretty dodgy.

They said anime artist, not mangaka, so I bet it's drawn by an animator. Speaking in general terms, the art skill level among mangaka tends to be rather low compared to that of animators from what I've seen.

I've never played a Saint's Row game before, and I've never really been a fan of the GTA series. However, I'm having a ridiculously fun time with this game.

I downloaded the Initiation Station a couple of days ago out of curiosity, largely because I love tinkering with character creators. After toying with the sliders and being relatively satisfied with my creation, I realized two hours had already passed and had a burning desire to see my character in action. So, on an impulse, I purchased the full game off of Steam.

I have to admit, I suffered buyer's remorse while waiting for the game to download. I figured I'd get my character in-game, end up tweaking her a bit more, play around for a bit and get bored. Fortunately, I couldn't have been more wrong and my regret over my impulsiveness was quickly abated after loading up the game.

I really like how cinematic the gameplay is during the missions. For example, how when your character is free-falling through the sky in the second mission, and the game fluidly transitions into a cutscene where (s)he shoots and kicks in the windshield of a plane and dives through it, taking out several enemies in her path, before flying out the back and putting the player back in control as the character continues plummeting towards the ground. Not to mention, how over the top and dynamic the whole scenario is (as are most of them).

It's also nice how most of the missions are unlocked as activities, so you can play your favorites at anytime. Also, the city looks gorgeous, especially when it rains. The streets actually look wet and reflect light. It's a nice touch.

My biggest gripe with the game is that my characters often look like ass during some cut-scenes, despite looking fine any other time (in my opinion, at least). I guess it's just the "cinematic lighting," but it can be really jarring sometimes. Also, I can't say I'm particularly fond of any of the female hairstyles. I hope they add more in the future. Why do western developers always suck at making female hairstyles?

For a game that's filled to the brim with crude humor, drug references, really blatant sexual innuendo (actually, I don't even think it's really innuendo) and all sorts of other vulgar things, the game is surprisingly well crafted. I've only had the game 3 days, and I've already clocked in way more time in SR3 than I have in Skyrim.

And to close with a gameplay question: I'm at a point in the campaign where the STAG guys are everywhere. I'm finding this often makes doing a lot of activities exceedingly difficult as my notoriety inevitably increases and squads of those STAG guys roll up in their armored street tank behemoths (that shoot lasers or something) in addition to the usual rival gangs and regular cops. Can I get rid of them without actually finishing the campaign or am I just screwed?
>> No. 5469 [Edit]
>It's also nice how most of the missions are unlocked as activities, so you can play your favorites at anytime

Actually it's the other way around: those missions ARE the activites. There's no way to replay the "real" missions (except the final one, and then only once). Also, what's you steam name? Maybe we could play together, though I have no mic.

Right, that's kind of what I meant, I guess. I realize the important story mission aren't replayable. However, my favorite ones where you can hang out of a helicopter and blow stuff up are activities, so I'm happy.

>Also, what's you steam name? Maybe we could play together, though I have no mic.

That's fine. I don't have a mic either. Is it possible to communicate via text in-game?

Hmm, you could try friending me first. It could be something with profile settings. I'm not particularly knowledgeable with the community aspects of Steam. Also, the fact that I have SR3 paused and alt-tabbed could have something to do with it.

Just finished what I assume is considered the 'bad' ending (since I betrayed everyone) with another TC poster. It was pretty neat, although the final mission seemed rather easy. However, that probably had a lot to do with the fact that Kawaii had my back the entire time, enabling me to just focus fire on Cyrus. It's pretty neat that you can play the entire campaign in co-op in addition to just roaming around causing mayhem.

This game is so ridiculous, but it's a blast to play. It's pretty funny how them manage to cover the full spectrum of pop culture and cram it all into one game.
>> No. 5520 [Edit]
>However, that probably had a lot to do with the fact that Kawaii had my back the entire time

Being immune to almost all damage and having unlimited rocket ammo goes a long way. When I first did that mission I had to call in a tank

>> No. 5888 [Edit]
I kind of wonder just how well they expected SR3 to sell. It's been in the top 10 sellers on steam since release (barring a few times when various sales knocked it off) and that's about as good as it can get when competing with the likes of Skyrim and the new CoD. Maybe the console version didn't sell very well or something, though you think it would have sold even better

THQ is already dead, basically. Unless someone buys the entirety of THQ, which is likely because they're extremely cheap for the huge amount of IPs and talented studios they possess, I'd imagine Volition as we know it are done for, and the Saints Row IP, along with THQ's other IPs, will be picked off by random publishers. There's been speculation that Warner Brothers, Square Enix, or possibly Konami would buy THQ wholesale, so there's hope, but it's way too early to tell.

It did very well, way better than I think a lot of people expected, but it just was not enough. THQ have been mismanaged and making poor business decisions for ages. They've closed over 10 of their internal studios this gen. The straw that did them in was the huge uDraw flop on PS3/360.
>> No. 5901 [Edit]
>> No. 5922 [Edit]
Well the Genkibowl thing was pretty mediocre. Adds a few new activities, all but one of them is really original. The rest are just altered versions of existing activities. No new clothes or anything (that I've seen unlocked, haven't checked the stores for new stuff yet) aside from big mascot masks and a panda suit. Not even any new dialogue from the protagonist except for the end, where for some reason it uses the altered voice effect that the opening mission uses. Maybe they couldn't get all the MC voices back or something. The new vehicles are neat though: a giant ball of yarn and a flamethrower car specifically

I really hope the other 2 are better

To be fair there was apparently tons of things they wanted to do with SR3 but couldn't because of time (like a full parkour system), so there's probably a bunch of new stuff cooked up for this. On the other hand, 2 years probably isn't enough time to make good new game specific things like story and a new city, unless they do like they did with SR2 and use a bigger more detailed version of the previous city.

They probably will reuse Steelport if they make SR4 follow the killing Killbane and making Steelport it's own nation ending.

Saints Row 4 was just announced and I fail to see what their strategy is against GTA V other than to still the urges for GTA two weeks before release.
>> No. 8124 [Edit]
GTA has steered away from wacky violent crazy fun and has taken the series in a more serious narrative focused direction, and saints row is filling the void. They're not in the same league and shouldn't be seen as directly competing with each other.
