No matter what, it'll still be better than mafia II in my book.

Then again, most n64 games are better than mafia II in my book.

You didn't like Mafia 2? I though it was quite good. Enjoyed the story, especially the ending.

OT: SR4 will have it's one month of fame. That's all it will ever have.

The ending made me cry :'(

That ending didn't even touch Romans death. (Assuming you let him die)

Yall need some spoiler tags for those there posts.

I was talking about Mafia 2. Unless you meant to say Joe. But it's what was is implied that is sad.

Saints Row IV won't even get 1/8 of GTA sales and awards. The person who wrote it just doesn't like Rockstar Games or GTA. So they wanted to make GTA look bad.

First thing you've said that I actually agree with icon14.gif icon14.gif

You know, I enjoy saint row for the stupid game it is...but they literally just cut and pasted 80% of saints row 3 and slapped a Saints row 4 sticker on it. GTA 5 is ENTIRELY new and fresh. GTA wins in every category.

Stop taking this sh*t so seriously. You're acting like they directly offended you. It's just a sh*tty PR attempt by their marketing team to get some attention.

The article you linked is someone's opinion. That's how THEY view the game and it's wrong to fault them for that.

Honestly if Saints Row 3 had been a sequel to Saints Row 2 and if Saints Row 4 was then a sequel to that....they may well have been able to be a more carefree alternative to GTA...

The route they've taken though has made them just incomparable to the GTA series. It's not even on the same wavelength.

You've got one dramatic beautifully crafted series that comes out WHEN IT'S DONE, then you've got an absurd crass rushed out series that turns DLC into a full game.

R* isn't above trashing other games either. They've made fun of the Driver series a few times.

I always saw those as humorous jabs, nothing serious. This is just unprofessional.

Actually it was a little deeper than that, some of which that deals with Michael Madson.

I enjoyed Saints Row 2 for what it was. An alternative experience to GTA. Not saying it was better than GTA but it was a different experience. Haven't played Saints Row 3 and now Saints Row 4 looks to up the ante with differentiating Saints Row from GTA for better or for worse. My money is people will ignore Saints Row IV and wait for GTA V while the few people who do go out and buy SR will go onto every social media outpost they can and voice how insane, crazy and fun the game is. They'll be gone within a month and GTA V will swoop in hauling in what could possibly be record breaking sales. Ugh, September can't come soon enough.

Also Mafia 2 had potential.. until you realize there isn't anything productive to do outside of the main story except 1 or 2 activites. Anyone know when Mafia 3 comes out? Because they can't just ignore the fact that it was completely bland outside of the story if they are making Mafia 3.

When I first played Saints Row 2 I hated it. Couldn't stand, thought the graphics were ****. Just put it down (bought it used for a nice savings) and ignored it.

Picked it up a month or two down the line. Played through the first gangs missions. After that I liked it pretty damn good. Not as much as SA but still fun as hell. Had my Avatar pretty much set up the same I had CJ for SA. Big, cornrows, vandyke, biker. Good stuff.

Bashing GTAV as a way to get pageviews and attention for SR4 is almost as shameless as putting out Trailer #1 about 15 months early to draw attention to Max Payne 3 and then going silent for a year. tounge2.gif

The truth I can not compare the two
Because I've never played in SR also not watched any of the game trailers
In short just from what I've heard the game is not interesting

OT: Whoever wrote this Tweet disappointed from his own game(SR) LOL

I actually hope that Volition is mad about that article and about what Deep Silver said. Because remember when Volition said that they don't want Saints Row to compete with GTA anymore because it's at a totally different approach now? They can't be happy about that statement. Or wait a minute, DID THEY TELL THEM TO SAY THAT? Anyways what Deep Silver is doing is completely childish. So what if GTA V doesn't have that so called American VTOL, it still has two fighter jets. And even though Saints Row 4 has the VTOL, it's rarely going to be used because the game now has superpowers, so what's the point of that argument? I hope that there are YouTube videos about this.

SR fanboys are like CoD fanboys. Even if you prove to them their game is not better they will regress to a elementary school mentality and call you names and try to kick the sh*t out of you thus becoming the king of the playground.

I believe V will make their reply to this pathtic PR with sales numbers.

Games that give you the best weapons 2 missions into the game don't really give me enough challenge. Not much to work towards IMO.

Also, every Saints Row has felt very disconnected to me. What I mean to say, is the control physics is so weak and the cars drive so unrealistically that I couldn't even really get into the game enough to keep playing it.

Saints Row always seemed like the game made for people with no patience.

Also they have different tastes and might just prefer whacking people with a dildo bat to taking your cousin to play darts on wednesday.

Anyone who is responsible for Dead Island has no right to dish out criticism on others, especially Rockstar.

True, true they might also enjoy to clean toilets, sell cigarettes by choosing the correct color, lift a crate into the back of a truck, and drive everyone around, you know usual stuff, lol biggrin.gif lol.gif cookie.gif

The author of that article doesn't have all the facts. He is comparing a game where they haven't said much, compared to another game where we get a new game play video or screenshot (or other info) on an almost daily basis.

Maybe this is part of R*'s supposedly amazing marketing campaign. dozingoff.gif

Anyway, I lost interest in SR3 after the first few minutes. Also, Racecar do you have to dis Mafia 2 in every single thing you post? You didn't like it. we get it. There is no need to keep bashing it. If it wasn't in your tastes that's fine but that doesn't mean it was a terrible game okay. If you don't like the series then just don't play it. Wait for the reviews and see if it is up to your standards.

No developer will ever reach the quality and body of work Rockstar have presented over the past 15 years. The dude hating is sort of like that fat kid that bullies everyone because he's insecure about his weight.

Lol. I always thought this game was made for the idiots but now I realize its also made by the most idiotic game developers ever.

Only if they used all that time improving their game instead of posting links to a sh*tty articles that is comparing two unreleased games.
