How I learned to stop worrying and love Saints Row 4

Log responds to Edwin's tart appraisal of Volition's mauvest franchise

Reading Edwin's downbeat reaction to a playthrough of Saints Row 4, I felt my ardour dampening. It began as a moistness at the periphery in my eagerness, as Edwin described his fatigue at Volition's bid to create "ever-more sensational opportunities for goofiness and carnage".

I get the impression if you feel the need to ask questions like that the game probably isn't for you :lol:

I see fishy reading this and I can guess what will happen :roll:


You're in a alien simulation world, and you can tweak your abilities by collecting data fragments that allow you to hack into your own code. I should have thought that was obvious

one of my friends genuinly said he would be dissapointed in the series until it stopped being so kiddy and unpixelated the nudity

kinda hard to argue against in fairness :wink:

I'll admit my enthusiasm was also slightly moist after Ed's preview, but nothing was going to keep me from buying and trying it myself. Glad to see some optimism toward this for once.

Yeah this isn't a game for deep plot questions.

If you didn't call your character President Strangelove, I'm going to be disappointed.

"Bro fisting"?

Sounds like a DLC weapon pack for SRIV.
I don't care if a game is "the same every year." So is pizza. Stop buying the bad pizza. Buy the good pizza.

Overall I was really disappointed with SR3. In fact I have only just completed it and probably wouldn't have bothered IF I had had my internet working...

Admittedly the graphics are better than SR2 but they are still not great and the smut just cheapens the whole expereince and wears thin VERY quickly. With the new super powers in SR4, I personally think this is yet another step towards gaming oblivion rather than pushing the series forward.

SR3 also has pretty much the same side missions as SR2 with a little variation.

All in all I think SR4 will be a bargain basement only purchase (at best)
As Confucius said 'Man who keeps hands in pockets feels Cocky all day'... ;-)

Loving Destiny at the moment!!! I know the story isn't as 'Epic' as it could be but the game is so addictive!!
