Saints Row 4 is the End of the Story for The Saints


Sledgstone

Apparently Saints Row 4 will be the end of The Saints as we know them:

Is this the end of the Saints Row series as it currently stands? The design director revealed that the series may continue, but this particular strand was concluding in the incoming game: "We're definitely considering Saints Row IV sort of the end of that saga of this character and the Saints as they are. So if there's any more future Saints Rows - which you know we always hope there will be, we hope there's fans for future games like that - they will probably continue in a different direction."

Saints Row 4 is going to conclude the storyline of the 3rd Street Saints..

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.

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.

I like the vampire DLC, but it feels like cheating. :P

 

That was (one of) the only DLC in SR3 that wasn't in The Full Package version.

 

Also another video about SR4.

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

      Although its also on the PS4, I purchased Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana for the Switch recently because it's just been collecting dust. It was probably the better option anyways because the graphics look like something out of the N64/PS2 era with modern draw rates. Not a knock against it, as its quite charming... but the game looks like it belongs on the Switch rather than PS4. Everything about this game is so 1998. I've never played any of the Ys games before, but this one caught my eye for the old school hack and slash. It's very Dark Cloud-ish minus the world building. Sprinkle some old Zelda in there as well. The combat is relatively simple with 1 button main attack, and 4 special attacks that consist of holding R1 and pressing A B Y X. These use a SP meter that replenishes on kills. There are also dodge and block counters that give you a special speed combo ability. You have a party of 3, and characters that join where you can swap them out and swap between the three in combat. Each character has a assigned damage type (Slash, Precise, Bash). Having all 3 types helps weaken the right enemies susceptible to these plus you get a rare drop bonus... rather than the 1.1x bonus for having two of the same. Anyways, the story is campy but interesting, the dialogue is 90's cringeworthy, and its a lazy sprinkle of actual voice acting and text reading. The world is  large but a bunch of sectioned off instances that quickly load without a loading screen as you cross them. There are fast travel points but not in every sector, so it requires some old school memorizing where to go at times. As you get special gear, you'll find places that were inaccessible previously open up. I'm 20 hours in and I don't feel like I'm even half way through. So at $60, I feel like I'm getting my money's worth for a decent nostalgia kick. I bet this will be a free PS Plus game next year so when it comes up I highly recommend it without even finish it. I'll report back when I beat it with a proper review.

      Its been quite the stressful couple weeks. Lady had her surgery and is having a very slow recovery process. My bank required specific repairs to the garage to approve the mortgage and instead of paying a massive price to a contractor me and my friend spent 2 days this last weekend busting our asses in 90 degree days with 90% humidity and full sun working on the garage. Thats all done and accepted now.. Yay. Getting into the final stretch here with the house. Hopefully I'll be moving by the end of the month. I might actually have free time this weekend... finally. *knocks on wood*

      The first two eps of AoT season 3 are better than season 2 in its entirety.

      Originally I wasn't going to say anything until I actually finished watching the series (which should be Monday or Tuesday night) but you were right DX, The Ancient Magus' bride is spectacular and I say this after only watching 15 episodes.
      I have to say it's up there with Violet Evergarden for both visuals and story (and it's been awhile since I've seen a show that has completely drawn me in to the point that I sacrifice sleep just to watch another episode). I honestly didn't think the premise would suck me in this much but I'm glad it did (and both episodes with Nevin were extremely well done (I shed some manly tears they were so emotionally impacting)).
      I honestly have to say this is probably going down as one of my favorites shows from the last few years (which isn't really hard considering my problems with the last few seasons), only taking second to the masterpiece that was Violet Evergarden. I can't recommend this show enough for those who want a story driven show focused on character development and world building (I'm just sad I only have 8 episodes and 3 OVA's left, really hope this gets another season once the manga gets further along).

      This simuldub season is pretty meh compared to last. If it wasn't for the fact that MHA and out of all things; Black Clover was still running. I'd be hard pressed to keep up. Ep 1 of Overlord season 3 felt like a waste of time, but the second one made things pretty interesting. Angels of Death seems kind of bland so far. How not to Summon a Demon Lord is a typical fanservice trapped in a video game world show. Same goes for The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar. Lord of Vermilion feels like a better Tokyo Majin.. which isn't saying much. Hopefully it will be something better. Harukana Receive is bouncy bikini beach volley ball, but Haruka is a total best girl, so I'll shamelessly enjoy it. On the opposite end, I'll skip Free! because I'm not watching a bunch of dudes swim, and I'm already watching HR and Hanebado... an anime about freakin Badminton. With Dies Irae and AoT not staring until later in the month that leaves three unlikely contenders for a surprise best in season for me, that isn't Overlord or AoT which I already expect to be solid at worst.
      Magical Girl Raising Project is apparently a dark ass violent series with cute moe magic girls. A total clash of genres. The first two eps only have brief hints at it so far, its mostly just cutesy. But if it turns out like I think it has the potential too. It should be pretty interesting.
      Chio's School Road is a "school" anime thats about Chio's walk to school every day, instead of the actual school day. The absolute absurd happens apparently every time. The first three eps have been pretty hysterical so far. Its different, so I like it.
      Island is a pretty big mystery to me as to what its suppose to be about. It has my interest to see how it unfolds. It can honestly go either way. I guess I'll be reviewing these at the end of the season and we'll see how my opinions have changed since this status update.
