"Saints Row 3 pulled out at last second from VGAs but we promise info in January!!!"

They're nothing big about the Saints Row games. They suck just like GTA4.
Legion  +   1487d ago
You have one bubble and that is what you choose to write? And who are they? (They're)

I am assuming you have never played either game? Ooopppss... I guess that was a retorical question. You can't answer. :(

Saint Row 2 was not that good they better do better with this

i thought the amount of things too do was a real strong point but i thought the gameplay was lacking something.

Played it this week. Their are definitely a lot of fine tuning needed in the gameplay for vehicles which render some missions harder than they are supposed to be. Like the helicopter missions. Man o man. Some of the activities can be fun but there is so much of a helter skelter feel. Nothing is tight. However, it has insane customization and charm. They have to work on a lot of things but if there is not a GTA5 announcement this year they will be the only gangster themed game this year if it is released this year. I have a feeling GTA5 will be announced at E3 for 2012 so they better get their act together at THQ.

Though on the technical level it was below standard it did have the fun factor and silliness that made it more akin to GTA San Andreas...

Basically they went for all out silly fun and cheesy but awesome story telling over the more realistic more serious approach that GTA4 did.

At least they confirmed a new graphic engine for Saints Row 3.

So the graphics will hopefully not suck ass.
Legion  +   1487d ago
I am almost finished with the first Saints Row. (going back through some of my older titles I never got a chance to start)

Totally enjoy the story and though the graphics are dated it is still a fun game. Looking at getting Saints Row 2 and knocking that out before the next tile shows up on store shelves.

The one liners alone are worth the buy:

Johnny Gat: [in an elevator, looking for Tanya] I'm gonna skull-f**k that b*tch.
Main Character: [pause] Hope you don't mind hepatitis
Johnny Gat: So you're Julius' new boy. You don't look like much. Then again, I don't look like I got an eight inch c*ck. So I guess we're both full of surprises.
Julius: That sounded like one hell of an explosion. You okay?
Main Character: [pause] I got run over by a motherf**kin truck. What you think?
Julius: Oh, don't be a b*tch.

Saints Row 2 is a lot of fun if you liked the first. Some people just take themselves too seriously around here.
TenSteps  +   1487d ago
And with those quotes you'd think it'd be all fun in SR but they still manage to throw awesome parts that show seriousness.

The way the Flower petals fell to the ground as Jyunichi swung his sword as a means of symbolism showed that they made sure that that event was meant to be serious and emotional (especially for Gat) and not a silly crazy one.

they better announce more then 2 game modes online,or they might announce some free DLC for xbox
Psychotica  +   1487d ago
Would be nice if the Saints moved to a different city...
Legion  +   1487d ago
I'm just hoping they don't ruin it with a Zombie mode like all the other franchise bumbs!!
TenSteps  +   1487d ago
It had a zombie mode albeit more of an arcade game in SR2. Plus you had Zombie teammates as bonus teammates.
Legion  +   1486d ago
I do recall that I am about to get the ability to call for backup in Saints 1 that died and comes back in her Reaper vehicle. But at least I don't have to call her and it is more tongue in cheek then an actuall "Lets put Zombies in our game to make everyone buy it" thing.

No different then all these damn vampire movies and tv shows. WTF???? Can't they just get over it already...?
silvacrest  +   1487d ago
i hope there are less bugs in this one, plus please improve the graphic, vehicular control etc

SW has potential, just give it a chance
