    I am kinda surprised that there isnt a Saints Row 4 Discussion Thread here. Usually I see NukemDukem do it xD. Since it was a major game in the last 1-2 weeks. I think I saw a thread that had a trailer for Saints Row 4 previously.



    I think Saints Row (SR) 4 is kinda way, way, way out there. When compared to SR1, SR2, and SR3.. it is almost unrecognizable.

    There are a lot of cultural references in this game.

    The game is a little bit unbalanced in open world and because of it, it does get boring after a while. I will leave it at that as to not to have any spoilers.

    The game is full of violence, profanity and there are nudity (not in the above video, but in the later parts). Pretty much a testosterone driven game.

    It's based off the same engine as SR3, which did have DX9 support. SR4, for some reason, does not have DX9 support. Now I gotta go play it on a friend's console.

    I think the jump from SR2 to SR3 is still the biggest, both in terms of gameplay (engine change) and atmosphere (from gangster to over-the-top). SR4 seems to be on track with SR3 in the same way SR2 followed from SR1.

    Yeah. I thought it was weird it didnt have DX9, since with SR3, first thing it asks is if you want to play it in DX9 or DX10/11.

    I think SR4 is a lil bit unstable, at least on Ultra for me, which is no problem for me on SR3. Occasional time where my game's FPS goes down to 2-3 and end up restarting the game. It is annoying, especially when recording footage.

    Going from nobody to POTUS alien killer haha. What a journey.

    The first chapter is epic. Then... it's pretty good. Then... It's pretty much the same ol' thing with some super powers.

    Should of been a xpac not a full release as 3 did not come out that long. I wont pay $50 they gotta be kidding maybe if it took 3+ years then maybe..

    More of a GTA person too my self although if they did it with that i would still think the same.

    I believe they will release a GTA5 for PC you will have to wait and i cannot blame them as PC games get ripped and put on torrent sites some times before they are released.


    This way they get the console sale and even get to sell the PC version as well to them as a lot of people have both.

    Saints Row IV.
    First thing which comes to mind is the patch and how it is on par with Skyrim patch quality.

    None the less it has been a fun game.
    The way this game was designed makes me think it was initially made to fit in with a small budget.

    Basically more of Saints row 3 but with Super man powers which is absolutely fine in my opinion as the game is fun but also due to the Superman powers, it doesn't seem to have the same replay value as Saints Row 3.

    None the less I did buy this on pre order and I have bought the Grass Roots back and have not regretted it one bit.

    Also performs smooth unlike Saints Row 3 which is a bit stuttery and especially for a gaming evolved title.
