As some of you know from a while back, actor/comedian Jay Mohr (who played Dane Vogel in Saints Row 2) tweeted that he was working on a new Saints Row game. It's definitely not SRIV DLC, since the last batch has already been distributed.

Furthermore, Saints Row IV was announced not long after SRTT: The Full Package was released, and SRIV: Game of the Century Edition was confirmed for Europe with Deep Silver hoping to release it in North America soon.

If Jay Mohr is reprising his role as Dane Vogel, this was suggest that the secret ending where the Saints discover the time machine is true, and could be about their time traveling misadventures through Saints Row 1 and 2, and possibly 3. This of course would mean finally returning to Stilwater, which I would love.

 

If a new Saints Row is in the works right now, what would you guys like to see? Discuss.

While I considered the 3rd and 4th entry in the franchise just way too over-the-top, I'm glad to see they are continuing. Hopefully they will only release this on the next-gen consoles. Dammit devs, you got all the tools, use them.

I want them to continue with the superpower thing. I loved superpowers in SR IV, the sheer variety and use of them was huge fun. But I do want to tone down the wackiness. Not humor, I want SR to remain a comedy game, but I don't feel like they should pull cheap stunts like making the Boss a president of USA. I pretty much just want SR 2 with superpowers. I want to finally have a true supervillain game. I want to have henchmen, have an outrageous themed supervillain lair, rob banks, fight superheroes and threaten to poison the city's water supply.

It's pretty much impossible for the game to have superpowers and not be too over-the-top.

Ehhhh... 50 years of good superhero stories would like to speak to you.

 

Anyway, I'm not saying that the game should be all grim, gritty, serious and down to earth. Just not all wacky. More Raimi's Spider-Man, less Batman and Robin.

Are you forgetting that Saints Row started out as a semi-serious game about gangsters? Seriously, if you play the first game now it's quite jarring to see how serious the game took itself.

 

To go from a game about gangs and crime to a game featuring superpowers, it'll be over-the-top no matter how you spin it.

a farcry for a Reboot,8 years of existant (2006-2014) the 3rd and 4th game ruined the franchise in every possible way,no new mechanics/features or innovations,Crazy Over-The-Top Retarded Storylines,no cover system etc infact as a old fan SR2 i pray it a complete reboot....cmon SR is 6 yrs older than SD (2006-2012) but that game shows that it has a franchise potential even though it rip-off many things from GTA,AC and Max Payne and the camera is sh*t but it still do alot of things better than SR,even the Milkfest known as AC (2007-2014) that SR is a year older than is more innovative than that piece of sh*t of a franchise.

Side Note:Anyway it lose the competition with the Ruler of the Genre,GTA (1997-2014) after the release of V,so now it GTA and WD (although that with next-gen GTAs) in terms of gameplay features and innovation (but not in Scale,Success,Sales and Receptions)...although that not to say a Reboot of SR cant compete with GTA again in terms of Gameplay and Innovation.

I would really like the reboot of the series as it went to the wall with the story and characters development. What I would really love would be mix of SR2 and SR IV. More grounded story with fresh characters and a lot of references to the B class action movies from the '80s and '90s. Give us some A-team, Robocop (story in SR 2 was strongly based on it), Terminator and a lot of unique themed weapons (Robocop pistol was in SRIV for example) and vehicles (DeLorean, A-team van, Terminator bike, etc.)

 

Open world "crime game" which could be something to OWG as Blood Dragon was to shooters. Just don't throw aliens and US presidents again.

Please, overhaul this POS of a franchise. It's gone way downhill since SR2. It went from a proper crime, open world game to a bunch of superheroes on crack with aliens and sh*t.

If they do, they need to make it better than SR2. And please do it on the next gen consoles. No holding back because of the last gen.

I never got the appeal for SR2. I thought it was OK. Not that SR3 was better, just didn't think it was a huge difference in quality.

And here I was, thinking they put Saints Row in the ground. I'm a diehard fan of the first two Saints Row games, but lately it's been f*cking nuts. I mean, really? Super powers? President of the United States? Get the hell out of here Volition. I get it, you can only do the "Rags to Riches" trope so many times, but damn it. I just wish they would take themselves a little more serious.

Am I the only one who enjoyed SRIV? I mean The Third was just a hurricane of piss made for f*cking neurotics but IV was inFamous and GTA in one game. Sure it was over the top but then again what other games do that these days, they all take themselves so seriously that you think they're the f*cking government.

Nobody still runs around wailing "GTA CLONE", apart from Blood-is-in-diamond but honestly who still actually reads his posts?

A reboot of SR is needed. Especially after what 3 & 4 turned the series into. It went from a game on gangsters taking over the city to a game on dildo-wielding, super powered, alien hunting idiots. 

 

So you guys want it to be a GTA clone just so you can turn around and accuse it of being a clone.

 

This makes absolutely no sense at all.

Trust me alot of people still use the word "GTA Clone" and with V's release it just got more popular,and it has a definition,and oh it a Sub-Genre under the OWGenre...So No it not just me and i havent use the word in a while....end of.

Saints Row 1&2 were a Total Rip-off of SA but they were both Successful-Receptionwise and Saleswise,and they were labelled "GTA Clone" until SR3/4 try to stay away from that label and what happened? They Ruined a new franchise and turned it into a Piece of Sh*t that it is now.

No, we want it to go back to its roots, because it was a good GTA clone. Saints Row 2 is probably on top with GTA V with the best open world games of last gen, imo.

Saints Row The Third is the best selling game in the franchise right now, with nearly 6 million sold to this day. We don't know the exact sales figures for Saints Row IV yet, but it was the best selling game in August 2013.
