Dildos Don’t Get Awards – The Future of Saints Row with Deep Silver

With the ownership of the Saints Row franchise switching hands to Deep Silver, the chance that we will see a new take on the series is rather likely. As we are still figuring out the details surrounding the demise of THQ, the Daily Reaction crew of Seb and Dan discuss what this could mean for GTA’s biggest competitor, Saints Row. (Deep Silver, Grand Theft Auto V, Next-Gen, PS3, Saints Row 4, Xbox 360)

This, plus that Sony controller patent, means great things for the sex toy industry. New levels of immersion.

i know SR fans think SR3 sold ok so game must be good but Sr2 was a much much better game overall. GTA was crazy on ps2 yet it was also serious

i am a huge open world games fan so more games in genre is better but SR4 needs to be done right and not just got after the craziness.

SR series has potential but when you only go after craziness and silliness you are not going after a lot of fans who otherwise buy open world games, so why limit your fan base

I hope Deep Silver doesn't F up the game and release it with a lot of Bugs like 1st dead island

do SR4 right, look at sleeping dogs you could do a lot of crazy stuff yet the game has a proper tone of seriousness and fun. The story in SR3 sucked if there was a story

let's say F word 10.000 times
lets go blow this building or kill this person and do it gangster style

I have high hopes for Sr4

R.I.P Saints row had a good time while it lasted.

Hey, Saints Row 2 was SUBSTANTIALLY more grounded (figuratively), but still silly and great.

If they can keep how much more vertical SR3 was and have the better story/characters of SR1&2, they could have something that much better.

I think Deep Silver will have a "hands off" approach with Volition and allow them to do as they please. In this day and age where publishers are cutting costs left and right by removing the game manuals, Deep Silver aren't. I took a look at my Dead Island booklet today and its there, it's thick and it is full color. This just makes me feel like they do care.

Saints Row 4 FPS (nothing like sky diving in first person view swinging dildos, and so fworth and so on..
FarCryLover182  +   546d ago
I don't think it will be first person in any way, shape, or form.
J86blum  +   546d ago
I don't either. just throwing randomness out there. If they do a SR4 I just hope its funny, or even a prequel title maybe it can be about Johnny.

Except Koch bought saints row and now volition is the same as deep silver: a subsidiary of Koch. there's no reason to think deep silver will have anything to do with saints row. Why is that so confusing for people?

Who cares if it wins "awards" what does that matter? Saints Row 3 was one of THQ's highest selling titles, and thats why all this whining is pointless.

To me other developers are just mad because they are stuck with PR friendly publishers. If a dildo appeared at EA they'd be torn apart for it.

It sold well, so all this bickering about 'it went too far" is rather funny because of the sales. Honestly what do you want? You want them to go make it an FPS and try to clone COD like almost every other game out there? No. It has an identity, and if we haven't learned already, taking that away will ruin it.

The people saying "tone it down" are probably the same people that will end up buying a different game when it releases.

SR3 was a legit fun game. It was one of the very few games that got my non-gamer friends hooked. I guess it was because it was so over the top, cartoony, and had character creation.

Being too serious all the time is just not fun, IMO. If I want a serious story sandbox game, I'll go to GTA.

for SR4, I do hope they keep the over-the-top stuff. They can tone it down a little to please the other fans, but I just hope they don't make it too similar to GTA. Again, SR3 was fun because it was wacky. I haven't had this much ridiculous/stupid fun with a western game in ages.

Horror movies don't get awards, either, but they went ahead and made The Cabin in the Woods anyway, didn't they?

I, for one, am glad they did. :)

First off who give two shits about what Clifford B. Says the company he last worked for released a game full of dick joke & sexual innuendos,sexists remarks. Personally if deep silver turn this into a GTA clone am not buying it,cause if I had wanted GTA I would have never stopped buying them to begin with.

Deep Silver have done over a 100 titles, but they are most known for the Dead Island game that came out in 2011.

Viewtiful Joe won GOTY two years in a row...

I don't think people care about the content, so much as they care about entertainment.
Max-Zorin  +   546d ago
It's a lot of games people like that didn't win any awards.

A Deep Silver-made Saints Row will probably give me nightmares.
