And yet they're doing low-rent criminal activity like armed robbery and car theft instead of something far less hazardous and far more lucrative like embezzlement and fraud. I mean, how much do you think that rocket launcher costs vs. how much they're going to get from firing it at the cops? There is no way this is worth it. They could be embezzling money or committing stock fraud and making far more than they could possibly expect to gain knocking off a bank, with no risk of being shot to death. Robbery is bullshit crime for low IQ people.

The Saints Row games were never deep mechanically, but to see they manage to regress so badly is really funny. Sjws can't code.

Attacking your customers is sure fire way to ensure success.

They should have ended the game with a note to the audience:

"During the course of the game you killed 589 persons of different age groups and genders.

In order to prevent such tragedy from happening in real life, call your politicians and urge them to vote to forgive student debts."

And that happened to pretty much every single genre I can think of in so many ways.
It's laughable. And this is only gaming, but it's happening everywhere else, too.

A satirical Papers, Please-esque game about a bunch of zoomers committing various while collar crimes and staying ahead of the cops could be pretty fun.

It seems to be the usual tactic for leftits devs, producers or whatever lately. See the incoming LOTR show from Amazon, or the House of the Dragon one or even the She-Hulk one. All 3 attacked their customers, called them racists or whatever. Extra points because the first one isn't out yet and they're already saying "if you don't like my product, you're "x"!" stuff.

The memes coming from this trainwreck, or the ones that came from the GTA trilogy "remake"?

Imagine going back to like 2008 and try to explain to fans of these two franchises what's gonna happen to GTA and SR in 2022? They would have you committed and put in a straightjacket.

Saints of Wall Street when?

Greed Cringe is good.

The mass doesn't come from the bike. The mass comes from the player character, who is just that dense.
Truly immersive american experience
Coincidentally the two starting gang member styles are "Skinny person in vest" and "fattie in shirt"
Sadly you only get two genders here.

What I don't get is how SR is getting ripped apart by all the usual woke critics. So why put the woke shit in your game, if it doesn't even earn you any brownie points with the wokerati?

It's not about the money it's about the message. Company starts normal makes popular thing then a few sjw's infiltrate until one gets into a position of power and proceeds to only hire other sjws until they run the company into the ground. The parasites flee the dying host until they can find another and repeat the process.

I'm watching a let's play, and I have to admit, I don't hate it.

So far it's not as obnoxious as the trailer made it out to be. But then again it's a few hours in and it hasn't really started.

It's more slow and on the rails than anything.
I wrote the after watching early release let's plays.

It gets much, much worse after the first two hours or so.

The game is so busted and empty giving it high scores would make even the average schmuck suspicious. Also, the people responsible for this will continue to get employed in the industry 'cause ruining an IP like SR is not gonna offend anyone important.

"Hate for GTA6 because it's gonna have female protagonist"
Imagine their reaction to GTA 1 where you can choose from not one, not two and not even three but four female protagonist. Tzar bomba would squeak silently in comparison...

Can't decide whether Empress is based or retarded. Is it possible to be both?

I haven't seen a single person go "Oh this new Saints Row isn't like GTA so fuck this game." I've seen many people criticize it because it fails at being an enjoyable game on its own terms. Plus at this point, I think it's fair to say that most people who know Saints Row know it as its own thing anyway. So this person is just retarded for having to make up some narrative as to why people hate it.

This type of motivation never stopped all those journos defending Depression Quest all those years ago and only one of them actually fucked the developer afaik.

He is just retarded. A retarded tranny bitching about people not liking soy rows.
He also likes the game because he went into full on anti capitalist drivels before charging for cracks.
