Saints Row 4 Announced for August


DeathscytheX

Saints Row is back and now with superpowers. Check out the trailer for Saints Row 4.

Official Press release from Deep Silver who took the property from the now defunct THQ

In the next open-world installment of Saints Row, Deep Silver Volition continues the story of the Third Street Saints by elevating their status to the highest level – the leaders of the free world. In Saints Row IV, the head honcho of the Saints has been elected to the Presidency of the United States. But the Saints are just getting started. Now the larger-than-life insanity of the Saints series gets a new twist with a catastrophic alien invasion, and the aliens have transported the Saints to a bizarro-Steelport simulation. Wield gargantuan superpowers and fight to free humanity from alien granddaddy Zinyak's mental grasp. Escape the simulation that's trapped the Saints crew, or die trying.

Saints Row IV lets players delve into an arsenal of alien weaponry and technology that will turn each Saint into an ultimate entity of destruction. Utilize out-of-this-world superpowers to fight all the way to the top. With intensified action and enhanced customization, players can use their newfound superpowers and leap over buildings, outrun the fastest sports cars, or send enemies flying with telekinesis in the greatest, most insane installment of Saints Row yet.

Save the world, Saints Style.

One of the (2nd to) last Video Games I'm getting for my PS3. (The other one being Skyrim GOTY / Ultimate.)

 

Based on the graphics I hope this means I can use my Cheshire Cat Woman from Saints Row The Third.

So it sounds like the Saints are sucked into the Matrix? If it plays anything like Saints Row the third, it'll be fun game. :tup:

 

It sound that way mainly because the spin off "Saints Row The Third: Enter The Dominatrix" was canceled & made a part of Saints Row 4 before THQ went bankrupt. If it weren't for that we would've gotten a $30 Saints Row game last year.

I did not know that. It must have been too big of a project to have been included in all the other Saints Row The Third DLC. It definitely looks like its running the same game engine except with improved graphics and all those super power extra features.

Actually Saints Row The Third Enter The Dominatrix was only intended as an April Fool's Joke, but the joke I guess backfired when fans actually wanted it. Furthermore Saints Row The Third's DLC was Disc Locked Content instead of Downloadable Content so it could be they didn't make Enter The Dominatrix till after Saints Row The Third was already in stores.

I think Disc Locked Content is a bullshit marketing strategy. In my opinion that product is already paid for, including the development time, etc. Too many games are getting stripped down and parts locked away just to make some extra money. :\

Decide What You Want in The Saints Row IV Collector's Edition

At least they're asking here.

 

Here's how I answered.

  1. Saints Row T-shirt - "Department of Homeland Saintcurity" ○ HELL NO! I hate T-Shirts
  2. Saints Presidential campaign gear (Pins, hats, Saint Car Flags) ○ Do not really want As long as it says 2013
  3. Voice augmentation device / auto-tune device ○ Do not really want I have no idea what that is
  4. Pierce, Shaundi, or other Saint Figurine ○ AWWWW YEAH! I want Shaundi....
  5. Presidential Briefcase with kinky handcuff and key ○ Meh Lost me at Kinky Handcuffs.
  6. Dubstep Doomsday Button ○ Meh I'm stumped on what they mean by Button
  7. Functional (not deadly!) in-game weapon replica ○ Do not really want Sounds like a plastic toy.
  8. Johnny Gat Memorial Statue ○ AWWWW YEAH! He will be missed
  9. Saint's Bazooka themed Poster Tube ○ Do not really want Doesn't differ much from 7
  10. "Eagle Jet" RC Helicopter ○ Meh I play video games. Why would I want an RC anything?
  11. Tie and Tie Bar, Money Clip ○ HELL NO! I don't wear such things
  12. Sealed Classified Book with Artwork (Concept Art Book) ○ HELL NO! I could careless for in game art books
  13. Steelbook ○ Do not really want It would look kinda neat though
  14. White House "Security" download card ○ This could be cool Assuming it involves Downloadable Content
  15. President Seal and/or Coin ○ This could be cool As long as its bigger than JFK Half Dollar
  16. Cloth World Map ○ HELL NO! I don't need maps outside of the in game maps
  17. Saint Belt Buckle ○ This could be cool I would need a new belt
  18. Wood Cigar box ○ HELL NO! I don't smoke.
  19. Ridiculously amazing glass display case with lights? ○ Do not really want I'm just going to put SR4 next to my other games.

After that I put down only PS3 since when I get it for PC it'll be on Steam.

I bought 0 Collector's in 2012, but that's only because there hasn't been a I've really wanted since 2011.

Single Player is the life for me though this should've been a check mark question as I have played Co Op with friends after I've completed the story.

I am a True Saint.... Well I own SR2 3 times on Blu-Ray, PS+, & Steam. Then I own SR3 3 times twice on Blu-Ray since one is The Full Package, & Steam through Humble Bundle. I've considered the idea of wearing Purple on All Saints Day.

I just voted for the shirt and no for everything else. lol... Actually, no.. I didn't vote yet.. I figure whatever the collection will be it will probably be $100+ like most elaborate collections that come out now a days.

It looks like a blast, and I will get it regardless... but after you obtain super powers, cars and weapons seen like a moot point.... Although his Character is on max specs in that video where he has infinite everything... I remember maxing my character out pretty much abourth 4/5ths through the game. I became invincible to bullets about 3/4ths the way through and invulnerable all around shortly after... only time limits could end my missions in failure.

If they were to bring back the Genki Gun & Shark Gun I'd probably end up using those more than the super powers shown so far. I also liked pulling armed robberies with the RC Gun since it posed no threat to clerks.

 

I only ended up stealing only 3 or 4 cars in SR3 due to the fact I relied mainly on other vehicles I was rewarded or bought via DLC.

 

I've replayed SR3 a lot mainly because I bought the Vampire DLC. If I remember correctly I could still die in vehicle explosions. That & apparently only melee weapons could've harmed me. I want to finish one last play through of SR3 but haven't gotten to it yet due to laziness.

Yeah they could, but the penalty wasn't harsh, you just ended up at the nearest checkpoint... but it did screw up the missions if you died in a vehicle explosions. I never bought the DLC... I didn't really stray from the Wraith and its counterpartbike as far as land vehicles go once I got those. I made some funky customs for when I plaid with friends... but once i got the V-TOL it was pretty much all I used besides the STAG Hoverbike.

Senior Producer Jim Boone from Volition will show you how the leader of the Saints AKA the self-proclaimed "Patron Saint of America" encounters the alien overlord Zinyak for the first time and how he deals with an alien invasion in the White House - Saints Row style. In the second part of the video Jim presents more open world mayhem, including new weapons like the Blackhole Launcher, a move called "Death From Above" and an all-new experience by Professor Genki himself called Mind Over Murder.

 

I want to play this game. :D

      FedEx delivered my pool the other day.. *sigh* FedEx hires anybody. I see the guy pull into the driveway almost taking out my mailbox at 30 mph. My driveway has a noticeable dip in it. As he hit that I heard boxes from inside my house tumbling around inside his truck. I go outside to open my garage door so I can put it in there for now.. The guy sees me and says "I'm going to need your help moving this, this is heavy." I'm like... "ok.. I can only help so much, get your dolly and I'll help get it on there." He already had the box out of the truck. I'm hoping he eased it down and didn't drop it off the back. This box with the pool in it is 150 pounds. I walk over to him and he still doesn't have the dolly. Hes like "How about you get that end."... me: "No, how about you get that dolly right there." him: "I can't get it off, its tied into place. Its on there tight, I can't work it off.  We could carry it" me: "nah, I have a bad nerve issue in my arms. I'm not carrying this box. I'll get you scissors and then you can cut that rope."
      Meanwhile I look in the truck and all the boxes are tossed all over the place. Its a disaster in there. Not a single thing in that truck is secured.. except the fucking dolly that is tied in place.  The one and only tool every delivery guy needs and its tied down while all the packages are getting beat the shit out of in his truck while he drives crazy. I got some scissors, he cut the dolly free. He took that dolly, put it on the ground, I titled one end of the box, he got the dolly under it, wheeled it back and started to move it slowly. His eyes lit up like his job just got significantly easier. wtf. He perked up and moved that box quick to my garage. He asked where to put it, I said near the chair.. and then he put it behind the lawnmower instead.. me: "ok, I can move it from there, thanks!" wtf.. its like he never got trained.

      If Black Clover took seasonal breaks like MHA, it would have had the potential to be one of the best Shonen series in years. Second to MHA of course. The story is good, the characters and their development are good... besides Asta who's gotten better recently. But the animation quality is such a convoluted mess. People can blame the studio with some merit, but the next episode will be 86 for the sub. That's closing in on two years with zero breaks. The dub only missed a week which is highly impressive for Funimation. When the animation is good, its good... the character models are a mix of good to mediocre. But there is plenty bad... and the low effort animation can go on for multiple episodes in a row. Even a bigger sin is that it happens during big moments at times... you know what you generally save your best work for? Its a damn shame too. The Magic Knight tourney was completely marred the first half with laughable animation at times, and then it got excellent for the final few matches. It drives me crazy when they show how good it can be and then how bad it can be alternating without consistency. With the introduction of their most compelling character yet, I just hope they try to do better overall. I have too much invested into this series now to turn away from it. I've heard they're going to stop outsourcing so much which is the main root of the problem. At least they get the power of friendship right.

      Funimation put up Your Name. I remember all the hype behind this film and how it it became the highest grossing anime at the box office. After watching it, it was kinda a letdown. I mean it wasn't bad, but Spirited Away is immensely superior to this movie. Its worth watching, but I wouldn't grade it above a solid straight to Netflix feature.

      Please Sony don't do what MS did and have a lame ass montage of a bunch of generic people talking about a console's vague specs you don't get to look at. Don't bother having a presser until physical hardware is ready to see and they're are games to announce for it. 🙄 I hope you missed E3 for this reason, and you're own event will not feature this garbage.
