Devs asking fans for another chance, is this update enough to convince you to part with your hard earned cash or was this game’s fate sealed long ago?
Maybe, I'll admit even after all the backlash I still have a passive interest in it. The kind where I'd jump on buying it if I had $20 to burn and I spotted it in that budget. But if the overhaul is good enough I'll re-evaluate buying it
Well i would like everyone to remember before or if you dive into saint row reboot it cost 500million to make. Grand theft auto 5 had a full single player multiplayer and was built from the ground up in house engine 500million cost. Saints row unreal engine 4 asset flipping some original stuff alot from the old games coop only 500million. I personally want to see how this team blew 500 million during development.
Not sure where you got that number, but I don't get how that's supposed to influence my decision 😕
Agree i had a laugh when I was watching reviews using exactly the same animations as 3 and 4 can tell a lot of that was done to cut cost but it went way to far
It's actually $100 million, which is still incredible for the trash quality this game has.
You were right it was "over 100million" up to 250mill depends on the source but still how?
Volition has over 200 employees and I believe Saints Row was all hands on deck. So salaries, marketing, music licensing, voice actors, etc. Yeah, $100M+ sounds about right.
yea, you're talkin 8 years ago pricing vs now... which is apples and oranges.
Needed overhaul after 3. Three was good but they were never going to push it past that. Four was dumb. They needed to focus on quality and becoming grounded then ramp the wackiness. The recent Saints Row wasn't it.
The reboot sucked and 4 was worse than 3 idc disagree but say why you do. They should have gone back to SR2 style.
People might be disagreeing because it seems like you're thinking that they're talking about overhauling the series with the next game and they're actually talking about over hauling the reboot with updates.
4 v 3 is entirely debatable I prefer 4 but I can see both sides. I'd actually rate them 5 Reboot 4 sr2 3 sr3 2 sr 4 1 sr og 360 launch era However everyone can agree the reboot sucks. But sr2 just feels clunky it's graphically worse than 1 and runs worse at that I remember it being so choppy on 360 I brought it on PC and a decent PC of that era struggled to run it despite running crysis decently
Rebooting the reboot? Offer up a demo/free weekend. Not just the character creator this time.
Reboot sucked. Reboot the reboot, why stick with trash?
I can’t imagine they made money on this. The overhaul is probably their Hail Mary.
I have heard that somewhere
The game's characters and story are so trash. You shouldn't have made them like fortnite characters. You made your bed, now lie in it. Saints Row 2022 is dead to me. I don't care what they do to it
That's my take as well. It's not the dated gameplay, it's the esthetic, style, very modern take on saints row characters I don't like. They aren't gang members, they are college kids.
Oh so they are asking for another chance on the same game? Pass I just don’t get updating a shit game to an “alright” one, there’s so many games out so if it’s shit on release then I’ll play one of the dozen others out there. You had your chance. Also in this case fans said it looked bad upon the first trailer but these guys basically laughed in our faces and trolled us so…no sympathy
I love Saints Row 1 & 2 so much that I always have hope, but Deep Silver has become a terrible Publisher, and Volition has become terrible Developers. Dont forget how bad Agents of Mayhem was.
I actually loved Agents of Mayhem, sure it's shallow and repetitive but the gameplay felt so buttery smooth and satisfying, and the open world was beautiful. Was actually the reason I was excited for this reboot cause I figured now that they've finally nailed some really good gunplay, putting that into saints row is gonna be awesome" but that never happened unfortunately
You can fix so much but the cringe story and characters need a overhaul. Not sure if it can be done through a patch but they definitely need to improve the story and characters and please for the future of this series Remaster SR 1-2 and continue the story after the 2nd. Please don’t go overboard and instead find that mixture of craziness and seriousness like SR2 had And listen to us the fans because we have supported this series without labeling its a GTA clone Instead of being defensive and taking cheap shots at your fans please listen to us
Yeah they needed to rewrite the entire story from the ground up. Have your friends get killed during like, the second mission and then have the main character + the cat go on a revenge mission to wipe out all the rival gangs and take over all their businesses. Maybe make a new friend or two along the way. Nobody likes those original three losers though, might as well wipe them from the timeline completely.
Honestly it was such a disappointment that even for less then $10 I feel like game isn’t worth the asking price
the only way I'm playing this game is if they give it away with PS+
Not even then...
No worse then some that other trash u play im sure, they switch devs to gearbox if anything gearbox can turn it around
Bring it to steam and I’ll admit it exists.
