>October 1st, I am forgotten
Oh yeah, that happened.
Because it's soulless garbage. And no, it has nothing to do with a black woman on the cover
You know they blew it when they made the soulless, boring, gray city in the originals seem full of life and soul by comparison.
SaintsRow 2's default character that was also on the box was a black dude and nobody cared.
I can't think of a worse IP to blame fans for being racist when it flops than SaintsRow
Pretty much. Saints Row always had a diverse cast of characters. Problem is Nu-Volition apparently doesn't consider it diverse unless it's a group of hipster gays.
Back in the day you had games like Def Jam and San Andreas and NFL Street and everyone in my neighborhood (80% black) adored those games. It's like the Speedy Gonzales situation or like Guacamelee. "Woke" white Americans think they know better and that something is too stereotypical and offensive so they want to sanitize, when in reality the target audience absolutely loves it.
What especially blows my mind away is the downgrade antagonists received. In the very FIRST fucking game they were at least somewhat interesting and you could understand how they got to where they were.
>And no, it has nothing to do with a black woman on the cover
I have a feeling they resentfully included the character creator simply because it was always a part of Saints Row. The promo one they used had too much work put into it to be a throwaway generic protagonist.
Well, lets talk about Elden Ring.
I forgot about that too
Dark Souls is literally the last good game released
Oh, then about Vampire Survivours.
I bet you the game is actually good and the only thing "wrong" with it is just that the chuds don't like the politics.
Play it if you're so fucking tough
you literally cant restart missions because it throws out a message about abortion rights instead
not a joke
you're either a woman or a homosexual
you wont ever be white, pedro.
Me when i spread false information on the internet
There's far more with it besides the shitty woke politics such as:
>especially shitty writing
>shitty shooting controls
>shitty driving controls
>shitty half-assed wingsuit that barely works
>tons of bug and glitches
>poorly optimized for both console and PC
Didn't help matters that the gay devs doubled down on their bullshit when fans expressed their criticism towards this piece of shit. This game deserved to fail and I'm so glad it did.
In all honestly Saints Row games all had all those issues (shit writing, gameplay and visuals) but were overlooked because they were like a exaggerated parody of early GTA games with extra fanservice and cheesy 80-90s songs.
If you remove that people are going to look at what else the game has to offer and it turns out it wasnt much
Volition was too retard to understand what the series audience wanted
>Volition was too retard to understand what the series audience wanted
summed it up perfectly
No, they knew. But they didn't want to do that and they made sure everyone who wanted that knew the devs have nothing but contempt for them.
the game switches aim sensitivity every time you change aiming direction.
play it and tell us 'how it feels', dumbass.
Burden of proof of it being 'good actually' is on you, now.
>aim sensitivity every time you change aiming direction
for pad or on M+KB as well.
I refuse to believe in the unholy year of 2022 that people still fuck up mouse aiming
It's more emphasized on pad, but the issue happens on both.
It's not. The game has terrible gunplay and a retarded health system that requires you to stop combat and do a special takedown to replenish health. However you cannot do this takedown whenever you want, it's only after you fill a special bar.
Additionally the story is dumb. There are four enemy factions.
1. Marshall is the only one to get any sort of development and exist to have an excuse to have future guns in the game.
2. Los Panteros is like the Westside Rollerz fused with the Brotherhood. Except the leader is silent and the most they ever do is destroy Neena's car.
3. The Idols, are generic anarchists but with a techno/edm theme. They're trying to overthrow captalism but they do nothing of the sort in the game. They just exist to be an enemy for Kev missions. Similarly the Idols leaders are just 6 randos with no names called "the collective".
4. The Nahualli's gang. They don't exist outside of the prologue and final missions. Again just serve as faceless goons to fight. The Nahuali himself is a "super-criminal" (thanks Saints Row wiki for that one, owned by Volition), who is presented as an out of touch old man who wants to be best friends with the Saints friends.
Heck the main saints aren't even interesting. They have no real depth and are extremely surface level characters for how much the game was marketed around them. Neena has probably the most development and even she doesn't have much just "my car belonged to my dead mom". Fucking Wrench from Watch_Dogs 2 has more character development than any of the main Saints in this game.
Have you watched a mission?
Ha ha! "Balls"! This shit is hilarious! What's the problem?
Okay, seriously this time. I've never actually really seen this game before. Is this like a satire of bad modern sitcoms or something? It feels intentionally bad. I cannot imagine someone thinking "This is great! These characters are wonderful and their interactions are thoroughly entertaining!". I just can't. It's really bad. It has to be ironic.
>I cannot imagine someone thinking "This is great! These characters are wonderful and their interactions are thoroughly entertaining!".
This is exactly what happened. Nothing is ironic. The developers thought the characters were great and relatable.
Do you think it's because the devs are rich kids and libtards living in a bubble? Just look at California, the rich people live barricaded in villas and are only interacting between themselves. They probably think that twitter is real life and depicting genuine and popular opinions. Unaware that the plebe hates fags, chuds, feminism and commies.
i think its what happens when your writers are 22 years old. nobody worth a shit is writing for video games.
The problem used to be that the people who wrote video games aren't very good at writing. Now the problem seems to be the people who write video games aren't writers at all. "Writer" seems to be the dumping ground where friends of friends and e-celebs and people with gender studies degree looking for a job in the industry go and they're really fucking shit at it. Just because you wrote a fucking gaming column that was all about you and your feelings and experiences with gaming a few times doesn't mean you can write a full length fiction.
> I'm not a good writer but I want to make a fun game with hot chicks, big guns, fast cars and diarrhea jokes, and I don't care about political correctness
This is the old Saints Row, the voice from late 90s and 2000s.
>Massive cop car getting obliterated by heavily dented sedan
Why hello fellow kids.
The game is fundamentally broken, you know as in the combat is a boring chore broken. And the caharacters even if you are a lefty and agree with their speeches about le capitalism you gotta admit that they are bigger hypocrites than Neko Bellic of GTA IV.
>comes into thread to immediately have an incel meltdown about chuds or whatever got you grumpy
Calm down, dude. No one likes being around you when you're throwing a tantrum.
Im buying it on sale
i'll buy it on ebay for like $8 eventually
Work-for-Rent Row was destined to fail.
Wasn't there some kind of controversy surrounding their community manager? Did that ever go anywhere?
>Inb4 it kills Embracer before the Deus Ex reboot
>Swedish Tencent dying to a single poor release
Embracer would have died due to Biomutant then.
the game that was so bad it even failed as a bad game
at least cyberpunk was actually entertaining
Can I fuck the twink Asian guy in the team? That alone would make me buy it
Anon. Get some fucking taste. Kevin(twink's name) is absolute shit tier.
Anon. This guy was designed to take dick
I don’t care if he’s an obnoxious feminist; he just needs to look good with a dick in his mouth
No. You can't fuck him.
No sex allowed. Nothing sexual like pimping whores or dildobats allowed.
i wouldnt engage with people about this game on Ganker. they most likely cant run it on their low end pc and if they are a console user...
Shut up, nobody came here for you to brag about your shitty PC
Shut up, you are just a terrorist
>thinking their game is shit is akin to "terrorism"
strangle these fags
>These Tweets are protected
Then you won't have a community, you have customers and your company that was already on its last legs will close its doors.
When they say "If you don't like it don't buy it", don't do it.
Simple as. Every time.
>WE DON'T WANT YOU!!!
>WHAT THE FUCK OUR GAME IS DEAD?? WHY
No. This game is the reason the series went to shit.
i thought a bit of SR3 was pushing it, but enjoyed the experience.
All that remains is the lay offs at Volition for the circle to be complete
Didn't the Embracer CEO admit it flopped?
more or less but the thing is devs never take responsibility for the shit they cause they can just sit around and be passive aggressive all they want
He said they're pretty sure it's going to be a profitable venture for them but he's not sure about its future as a franchise. He kind of hinted he didn't think the devs tossing the old SR fanbase aside and then hurling insults at them was the best course of action.
>He kind of hinted he didn't think the devs tossing the old SR fanbase aside and then hurling insults at them was the best course of action.
These days there are more threads for Jedi : fallen order than elden ring.
Open world and fromsisters are soulless and forgettable
Best case scenario for them is they get some pity sales on Steam once it releases there, so long as they put it on there at at least 50% off.
Its already 25% off on Playstation and game is barely a month old
I still don't understand this character.
Ok he betray you but why is he so obsessed with MC friend? This make no fucking sense.
Wasn't "The villain just wanted to have friends" the plotline for a Pixar movie or something? I haven't played it but from what I've seen of it I think they were trying to be satirical but they forgot you still actually have to be good when you're trying to be "so bad it's good".
What do you mean OP? I remember Fortnite.
what possesses a man to make a thread about a game they dont care about which was by their own words already forgotten?
It's like when you talk to your friends and remember something stupid that happened 15 years ago
"haha remember that time they tried to reboot Saints Row?"
It's like a reverse shill thread or something
>insult your fanbase and try to appeal to a demographic that does not like your games or even plays videogames
>wonder why it flopped
this is fully on volition.
they got free reign to make the game they wanted to make by thq nordic and it turned out like this.
And rightfully should. This game killed the franchise just like DoWIII killed off DoW in general. It will be a decade if not longer until we get a proper Saints Row game...if ever.
>It will be a decade if not longer until we get a proper Saints Row game...if ever.
All the retards have to do to redeem themselves is release Saints Row 1 for PC and release Saints Row 2 again without bugs and with the DLC included. That's it. I couldn't give a fuck about new games in the series and no one should. They should just release the 2 first games and never touch the franchise again.
>release Saints Row 2 again without bugs
They were gonna do it
Then the guy fucking died
>Then the guy fucking died
They should finish the patch as they promised they would after he died.
Sure, I'm not saying that it's an excuse for them not to do it
Just that the franchise is clearly cursed
>Just that the franchise is clearly cursed
You're right. Even if they made a new game with the old cast it would probably be shit. The Earth gets destroyed in SR4 so all they could do is make a game where they use the time machine they get at the end that is set some time in the past or something. Or just write 4 off as non canon and follow up from 3? Either way, it would suck. The franchise should either stay dead or get a reboot made by competent people that aren't pozzed fags
DoW III angers me so greatly as unlike SR getting stupid zoomers to tell volition they are doing things right EVERYONE was telling Relic to fuck off and go back to base building, or at least merge DoW I and II together and stop making some dota clone. Relic then promptly ignored their fanbase and thought they could get in on those megabux from moba players despite the reality people who play LoL, dota etc ONLY play those games. Relic were warned and did not listen so fuck them as well.
>at least merge DoW I and II together and stop making some dota clone
This is actually something people wanted. The best of both games + bigger maps than in the 1st. With addition of bigger customization options for armies. Sadly they fucked it up big time and now 40K is going down a horrid path after 7th ED.
played trough the first 30 minutes
runs like shit
story and sound is shit
characters are shit
gameplay is fucking trash, as in every apsect of it. shooting feels ridiculously bad, movement feels bad, interacting with literally anything feels bad
they kinda abandoned the "goofyness" saints row was known for and they tried to make it too "rigit" if that makes sense
I don't know if we have the right to act smug when we're the first ones to fall for aggressive shilling on this shit board.
See: the cypertrash shilling after the anime.
There was the same shit about no man's sky back then too. I remember the massive threads with negative posts being deleted.
Do you think they will eventually go back and fix this game? Shitting on cyberpunk and NMS was valid until they got improved through patches and stuff. Granted i always liked NMS for the soundtrack and atmosphere but i get why others were unhappy. If they manage to turn this game around in patches and remake the entire thing from the ground up through patches, our smug shitting on it will become invalid.
>crappy dollars store GTA garbage parading the corpse of cyberpunk rpg
But I have to say anyway that I never had faith for cdprojekt since the moment the Witcher 3 went full ubishit with bad repetitive and simplistic combats slapped on top of it. I knew they won't ever shit anything but casual trash for normies at this point.
The story is retarded, the combat is a mix between borderlands for the loot and bad console fps from 2010, the city is only a background with nothing you can interact with, the driving is absolutely awful I can't fucking forgive this point in a game that stupidly went the open world way just because it sells and now you have to drive a car handling like a piece of soap to go between missions except that you get no enjoyment from the driving.
Trash trash trash.
Also fuck off with the chud shit.
fl1ppy genuinely sounded heartbroken in his video
You can tell he actually wanted to like this game
Dude's whole channel is based around Saints Row. This is probably the last we'll hear from him
>mw22 is downgraded mw19
>starfield is glorified fallout 4 mod
it keeps happening
Laugh at these incompetent fucks.
Fixed your list, cyberpunk is actually worth playing (Even if you pirate it) so it's just not on the same level as the rest of that list.
Is that just a list of games that will sell millions but with saints row shooped in?
Unlike all those things, Cyberpunk is now actually playable (Adam Smasher is still a joke sadly).
Fixed your list, cyberpunk is actually worth playing (Even if you pirate it) so it's just not on the same level as the rest of that list.
playable =/= fun or well designed
the other games in that image are also perfectly playable, retarded cybershills
Now, yotube videos about their toxic community manager reminded me about that dumpster fire.
Even more reasons to dislike that game and it's dev studio. Fuck them.
Your text is too long, anon. You must be a terrorist.
Just saddens me what they fucking did to this franchise. What even went wrong? They had such a good thing going
>They had such a good thing going
If you ignore the last three games they made in the series maybe. Let's not pretend this was the death of SR. What this was was a failure to resurrect SR.
This game released?
Yeah, it got delayed by 6 months and still turned avout to be a buggy turd of a game.
I've run up like 30 hours in this game.
The gameplay is basically SR3rd but the story and characters are fucking awful. The dialogue makes me irrationally angry at times. I don't remember which reviewer said that this game hates being Saints Row but he was right.
Also, check out my Hispanicy latina cowgirl.
