>The Saints Row Reboot has failed to meet Embracer Group’s expectations, and the franchise’s future is under evaluation.

Embracer CEO Lars Wingefors has expressed his disappointment in the reception of Saints Row, though he is confident that the game will make money regardless. He described Saints Row as one of the harder of Embracer’s franchises to get a high return on investment with.

      When people say SR2 was the peak of this franchise, they should listen.

        SR3 was still.. okay-ish but it doesn't go with a bang since Steve Jarros and other veteran founders left the studio after SR4.

      He thought a Asian man whore with a waffle tattoo, a beta black sissy, and a mid latina with gameplay and bugs worse than saints rows the third would make money. Literally all the dumb fucks had to do was remake 1 and 2 like they did the 3rd.

            on top of being a pozzed piece of shit the story sucks, it's buggy as hell, adds almost nothing to the franchise (and in fact takes things away), and is so far alienated from the games that came before it that the fucking "aliens in space put the gangbanger president in the matrix and give him superpowers" game was closer

          All the games were full of political satire, they were never just "about gangs" any more than GTA was only about stealing cars.

                There are fairly reliable markers of emotion even in typed text. If you are really interested, you could find a few points of starting material on google and go from there.

                Wewlad, I'm going to close the thread because I don't give a shit what your mentally ill self has to say about anything at all.

                >So your issue is not that there's politics in this game, it's that the satire in this game isn't good? That doesn't really jive with Ganker's frothing at the mouth response.

                It's not satire though, it's just blunt political preaching. GTA does satire. This game plays like "baby's first tweet." None of it feels authentic enough to be biting satire. And it's not self aware enough to even be goofy satire. GTA hits everyone. This game has the most blatant political slant it is eye rolling

                The satire is that murderous criminals are still paying student loans just like their generational peers. The situation is absurd, which is the source of the satire. I never claimed it's good satire, but it's there.

                The game's utter cowardice is a symptom of it's woke left leaning nature.

                You remind me of the leftists who screeched at the "cowardice" of Far Cry 5 for not making the antagonist cult Trump supporters.

            As a former borderline communist who used to believe this, what you fail to realize is that those states were built up when they were swing states. Then they went far blue, started vampirizing their wealth and making themselves more crime-ridden, and now they're collapsing.

            The left is civilizational rot. People in those rich states began to feel entitled to a safety net (managed by politicians; very smart) as opposed to viewing it as something that you need to build for yourself by working hard, keeping your family close, forming meaningful relationships, etc.

              Oh you meant ShB
              Also what the fuck are you on about? You got a complete wrong read on this shit and you should've realized on that last point. Eulmore was essentially a gated cult that promised safety in a post-apocalyptic world, where the material contributors (the rich) were allowed to be lazy and everyone else had to become a loyal but disposable servant in return for that safety. It's not communism at all.

                Eulmore is explicitly communist. All belongings are rendered to the state for communal use. It's supposed to be an imperfect reflection of Amaurot which you visit later, which is an actual post-scarcity communist utopia because they can make whatever they want with magic. Narratively, Eulmore is a deranged mirror of Amaurot and Vauthry is a wannabe Emet-Selch.

                I wouldn't go that far. Emet Selch didn't see himself as a god, but a disposable foot soldier in the mission to restore the world. And he steps aside gracefully when beaten rather than pounding his fists into the ground like a child.

                That's why he's a wannabe. The primary goal of Vauthry and Eulmore is to return to mankind to a state of Eden, before morality or sin. That's why his boss form is that of the angel guarding Eden, said in the Bible to wield a flaming sword which points in all directions (his ultimate attack). That's also what Emet-Selch is doing, except that Emet-Selch knows the actual truth of the situation. Vauthry is just a mentally-stunted pretender. They even set Vauthry up as a fake final boss by having the classic FF thing where everyone comes together to usher you into the """"final"""" dungeon, and his boss theme is the ShB main theme like Emet-Selch's, except Vauthry's is autotuned to show he's a fraud. Speaking of the main theme, the lyrics referring to angels are actually talking about the Ascians and not the Sin Eaters, another way Vauthry is a wannabe.

          Neither. It's not like Embracer themselves were banking everything on Saints Row. They're far more likely to just cut their losses and do something else entirely. Volition will probably be kept around long enough to pump out some DLC since I think they already sold a season pass, and then they'll probably be dissolved.

      Good. Accelerate. The faster the investors/shareholders fucks off from the AAA publishers and crashes AAA gaming market, the better. A second major videogame crash would put the industry back on a better path. Just stick it out with some good old vidya that aint on that as-a-service model bs.

          The series was always diverse, though. Forced diversity is not a real thing.
          The game's problems include (but are not limited to)-
          >Blatantly unfinished

          >Worse graphics than games from 2006

      market research for video games is currently overwhelmingly influenced by twitter. of the single-digit percentage of people who use twitter, a further single-digit percentage of that is responsible for the majority of content. this content is, overwhelmingly, through both formal website policy and informal social pressure, pozzed.

      it's the same idea as "we want the call of duty audience" from the previous decade, except even more out of touch (at least call of duty was a real game people bought).

      also keep in mind that the vast majority of video game developers are themselves tapped into pozzed culture. making a game that could be seen as going against it is an actual risk social suicide for anyone living in san fran, chicago, and such.

      I've got a better idea: Don't hire people who use Twitter. There are only four prevalent types of users on there: company representatives, artists (check to make sure that their accounts are art-focused), Karens, and communists. The latter two like it because it's the perfect format for their half-thoughts, made all the better by the fact that anyone with anything interesting to say faces bans and suspensions. They can just yell "This is fascism!" all day, and the short character limit discourages anything more than a he-says-she-says response.

      Also, move your company off of Twitter. As I just stated, the main demographics of Twitter users who are entirely on the consumer side are part of a broke lunatic fringe.

      Sometimes, people have higher values than sitting in their bedroom naked playing video games. Like good storytelling. Or good characters. Or a game without game-breaking bugs being thrown at you every five minutes. Or talent. Artistry. Gameplay. Humor. Good taste. Call it whatever.

      I know you seem to value being peaceful, not making wave, and being defenseless over all the above, but fortunately not all people are like you. I say "fortunately" both because you're a waste of space, and you're making society objectively worse, by being a waste of space.

        It's not what anyone with half a brain wants. It doesn't take a genius to figure out why.

        You spend $100k on a project (we'll assume that this covers taxes, marketing, distribution, etc.).
        You spend the next year on said project.
        You make $102k in revenue.
        You spent $100k and made $102k, meaning that you only made $2k. Depending on other circumstances (e.g. your car broke down during business travel), you might have only turned a profit on paper.

    Which studio under Embracer do you want them to throw the Saints Row franchise at? Maybe have the Destroy All Humans team remake 1 and 2?

      Funniest part is that Volition nor Embracer get any cut of those sales until they reach the expected number of copies sold, which was already paid by Epic Games years ago, when the deal was done.

    Honestly, even as fucked up as the game was, they would've gotten more sales if they hadn't turned openly hostile towards their fans and generated tons of guaranteed no-buys and shittalkers.
    Dumb social media managers all think they're going to be the next freckle bitch account, and wind up costing sales instead.

        Reminds me of when I was house-hunting and the town I ended up living in was one of those nice places listed on like "Top 50 best small towns to live in America" type of thing. And they were listing out the pros and cons for every town on there. What this town had listed on the "cons" that it LOST points for was "lack of diversity." I was like OH NO. The author had to either have been an absolute dyed in the wool libtard who truly believed that or a rare troll.

    Literally all they have to do is remaster SR2 with all the console DLC.
    Keep every single mechanic as is but just upgrade the graphics to be on par with SR3/4 without giving up layered clothing and the like.
    SR2 is the golden flash in the pan perfect blend of comedy and seriousness. SR3 tried to be too comedic and failed. However SR4 went full retard and it actually worked out well.

    One of the battles that needs to be had is clarifying what normal people (not blue hairs and Bible thumpers) find offensive. For 80% of people, I can guarantee you that tits, gore, and edgy humor fall firmly under the category of "fun". Meanwhile, things that almost everybody (I live in an internationally infamous far blue region) finds offensive, like having an explicit agenda to portray men as inept and/or evil, is labeled "socially acceptable". If the overwhelming majority of people are unoffended by the """offensive content""" and are offended by the """socially accepted content""" that """speaks for the modern person""", aren't those mislabelings?

    BTW, the first step to fighting linguistic propaganda is to stop using it yourself. One of the few things that you have full control over is what comes out of your own mouth. Yes, it might mean having arguments or at least repeatedly explaining yourself, but if you can't even be bothered with that, you don't deserve to live in a free society.

      It'd bad business to announce defeat before the scoreboard is settled. You'll accelerate a downfall that might have been stopped.

      It's also immoral, I'd argue, since you have employees that are counting on you doing good business. Of course, the best choice that you could have made for the employees who deserve their paychecks was to not hire a single smug bluehair to your staff in the first place.
