    ... so will this have an Australian voice actor for the protagonist or not? That shit's important!

    Watching the leaked trailer...
    It's probably not going to be as bad as Agents of Mayhem, but everything looks like Saints Row 3.1
    Feels like I'd rather play Sunset Overdive again, that game sucked and had some of the cringiest dialogue in the industry but at least the gameplay wasn't a by the numbers TPS.

    Leaked trailer looks fine but I'm still not looking forward to this at all. I still can't get over the premise that these hipster douchebags became gangsters that kill hundreds of people to pay off their student loans.

    "hey guise, let's delve into a lifestyle with absolutely no way of coming back so that we can later come back".
    it makes perfect sense to me.

    What a weird dumb fucking choice to not release that leaked trailer. I mean, the leaked trailer is just a better version of the Welcome to Santo Ileso trailer that gives you more information about the game, better information about the characters, and doesn't have any of the totally obnoxious shit they ended up going with.

    The motivation is just horrible. Without any reasons akin to "no other job perspective", tragic heroes with good intentions, sociopaths with an appetite for destruction, or smply the youthful urge to be a bad boiii, all you are left with is wondering: Why didn't those supersmart dipshits not just make a normal business and earn at least 7 times the amount of money, except legal? Whooopsie!

    All of their newfound relatability as normal college students is lost once they start casually killing people. Dis gon be one hell of a "story not aknowledging the gameplay" clusterfuck. :hahano:


    Not that the target audience they aim for even bothers. "lol explosions lol".

    Wow what a yawn fest from Soys Row. How edgy of them to run over cacti and other vegetation....

    The city looks absolutely dead. Is this the PS2 version?

    WTF man they're deleting or not allowing critical comments to be posted.

    Note they're still using "pre-Alpha" 4.5 months from release.

    Yeah wow, not a great decision to give out footage of staring at buildings to the press. For a second I thought it was just leaked footage which would have been fine, but actively trying to show this off?

    Unsubscribing from thread, nothing of value was lost.

    That looks like they were given some B roll (which admittedly is pretty fucking boring looking) to edit and talk over for some kind of preview video and they just released all of it as it.

    I couldn't walk through downtown Portland for 2 minutes with that little excitement if I tried. And did they actually make the player walk slower? That's a feature I've always wanted from Saint's Row.

    You knocking my home town? Because I'll say one thing, we have way more strip clubs than this game's crappy rated G setting ever will.
