Gameranx: "Saints Row 4's marketing is in full force with the release of the game's official box art and first "Hail to the Chief" video."
I feel like they are trying to hard to be this over the top fun game and that is getting in the way of the fun.
Over the top fun game... Getting in the way of fun... ??
I know, I just mean they are trying a little to hard with the marketing and it is getting to be a bit annoying. I am hyped for the game and I want it to be successful.
They should have just waited until next gen until releasing this instead of trying to cram it into a pretty lame consumer window. I do like the way the powers are looking in the game though.
They really didn't have a choice. They were already well into development while THQ was falling apart. Had they been working on a new engine, there probably wouldn't have been an SR4. THQ was sinking fast, so it was decided to make the expansion into a full game. Then THQ folded. Like it or not that was the situation they were in. Going forward it may end up saving the franchise. If the dev costs were kept low they won't have to sell as much to make a profit. And a healthy profit could mean a continuation of the series next gen. Its all timing really.
Awesome stuff, I can't wait for this. Gonna buy the Saints Special Edition and the GTA V special edition. The box is simple but really cool, I like it.
