4 was super forgettable and I skipped 5, but both suffered by being low budget re-uses of SR3's city.

Saint Row Vegas with a new and unique city map sounds hot again. Excited for sure.

Looks good, characters look bland compared to the old games, maybe because they're meant to be player characters.

Oh i thought it was an expansion.


Anyway i'm happy they decided to tone it back down to SR2-3 levels, even if, as i said, the characters look kind of bland so far.

Ehh, it's enough to see that location-wise it's a new city with a vegas/desert theme which is exciting after a decade of the same damn city from SR3.

I think it looks kind of lame honestly. Boring Fortnite mobile game nondescript cartoony look. It's a look whose inspirations inspire no character.

That said, I think it's neat its a complete reboot and not in Stilwater. It's been such a long time since we've had an urban city open-world game, I'd be down for anything. So them talking about the city and how it has all these districts is a good sign. By 4 with all the super powers and whatnot, it kind of felt like the city part of the open world was less important. So I'll keep an open eye.

Yeah, i'm not into a panic about "muh wokeness", but it does feel like it's impossible to do comedy when you have to walk on so many eggshells.
I hope they can find some release from that, because so far that's the side that's absolutely lacking, even in the cgi trailer, there's just zero comedy.

Also lets be honest Agents of Mayhem wasnt that good either. Do they even have it in them to make a good game? It seems to me like Saints 1 and 2 were the sweet spots.

SR3 was ok and SR4 had some fun stuff but eh

I never played SR1, but I would like to check it out if I pick up an XSX or whatever in the future (I think it is BC enhanced right?)

SR2 I played for about 5 hours but the PC port was just too fucked up. Maybe it was paranoia, but I legit thought it was melting my PSU. Never had bad smells coming out of my PC like that before. Seemed like there was a good game there though. (RIP IdolNinja  :().

SR3 was really fun, don't have any complaints

SR4 I got bored after 5 hours or so. It felt like a SR3 DLC.

Agents of Mayhem always looked like a weak Crackdown. But maybe its actually OK considering CD3 was rubbish?

The developers say that Saints Row’s focus is, at least early in the game, going to focus on the material concerns of its young crew. These disaffected millennials turn to crime to, for instance, put food on their table, feel part of a community and pay off their student loans. Chief creative officer Jim Boone says that it’s, broadly, a “contemporary” millennial “power fantasy.” It’s only later that the game’s focus switches to the sort of empire-building that, in the previous series, eventually saw your character becoming president.

I wanna stay positive, because the few shots of gameplay looked like a fun GTA clone, but in terms of style, things look pretty grim so far.  :beli

Like those 4 "main characters" look like what you can create in the THPS3 character creator, they paid a character designer to come up with those?  :-\

I suppose there's scope for it to be funny if they lampoon woke people, q distinguisheds and the overall nonsense of the modern day world, but then you run the risk of upsetting the soyboy betacucks in the games media and there being an agenda against your game :thinking

I dunno, that type off satire is already stale in a way, because it's all you find on the internet, alt-right v woke, essentially.
Maybe why SR2 was the funniest, it had the "dumbest", less snarky kind of humor, and it felt more genuine, it straddled the line between serious and dumb well enough to make you think they were serious about it, which is the only way to be funny with that kind of material.

In other words, The Room is funny because it's trying to be serious, a The Room 2 where they embrace its mockery/legacy would be a piece of shit.
But Saint's Row never had biting commentary, it was toilet humor and references anyway.

Well, when they're saying stuff like this, can't say the brief gameplay snippets were achieving that feeling.

I know I'm dogging on it allot with too much still unknown, but the absurdity bar was raised so damn high with 3 and 4 it's hard not to feel a bit taken back by what they've shown so far.

The absurdity bar being lowered back down is good, 4 was already stupidly out of touch with what made the series funny in the first place.
Doesn't excuse the complete lack of character though.

But again, i want to stay positive because the gameplay snippets looked nice, and they haven't shown much yet.
Usually a CGi trailer should at least sell a sense of style though, and it's not oozing much of it atm.

The trailer on the PlayStation and Xbox channels are currently 50% and 54% positive respectively, while the one on the Saints Row channel is only 39% positive, suggesting the Saints Row fanbase is less encouraged by the reboot than the general video game community is.

Despite this, developer Volition has made it clear that it isn't going to change the vision it has for the game based on the initial reaction to the trailer.

After responding to a follower with a gif saying "haters gonna hate" and being told it was letting down the fanbase, the official Saints Row Twitter account replied: "We are not backing down on this game. We get it, it's new and it's a shock reaction to a reboot like no other."

Yes and no.
It was an alright game in its own right.
It had nothing of what made SSX, SSX. So if you were a fan (i wasn't so whatever) it really didn't deliver on that.

A bit like Rainbow Six Siege you could say, it's a good competitive shooter, but if you liked the Red Storm Rainbow Six games, it really had nothing to offer you.

This one seems closer in general design, just the humor and style seem different, so even if you hate the style, you'll probably be able to somewhat enjoy the open world gameplay.

Pretty much confirms my first impressions, so far.
The game looks pretty nice, curious about the customization, the cast of the main 4 characters looks painfully bland and boring, like a watered down Watch Dogs (which is saying something).

I dislike the trailer and I doubt this will attract the fortnite kids, but being honest this has always being what Saints Row was to me: juvenile trend jumper.

Saints Row 3 and 4 are my sweet spots, but I couldn’t never get into 1 because was trying to hard to be an edgier GTA clone (never play  2, seems to be a favorite of many other people). 3 was made in the right time to blow up as it did while 4 was during the beginning of the superhero craze.

3 had the best gameplay overall, quite polished, but 2 is still the best one, in that it really nailed that balance between trying to be a GTA clone and trying to be crazy/funny.
Also the amount of customization in it was the most fun.

3 and 4 were too "self aware" for my taste, and 1 just played it straight.

I think the fact that different people have different favorite entries in the series (I'm actually with boredfrom in that I enjoyed 3 and 4 the most, I *liked* dialing the absurdity up to 11 and the gameplay in 4 where you have super powers in the matrix is my favorite) just kind of shows that if they do the reboot well, it'll be fine. I have enjoyed all the games in the series, I dunno why y'all fuckers gotta fight over dumb shit. If they put out a crappy game, we'll know when we play it, but for my money they haven't yet.
