I’m totally psyched for SR4 and I plan on getting it when it when it comes out. I think the hate that SR4, not to mention SR3, has been getting is unjust. People getting angry about the aliens and superpowers need to calm down. The Saints Row series has always had a supernatural element. In fact, the Red Faction series, that takes place on Mars, is in the same universe as SR. So it’s not totally unfounded that the Saints would rub elbows with alien creatures before too long.
As for those complaining about the “goofiness” of the 3rd and the apparent continuation in the 4th, I must admit that I agree with them, but to an extent. Yes, SR2 was MUCH better at balancing gritty story telling and slapstick antics than SR:TT but it’s still a fun game that, on it’s own, has many strong points.
The Boss has been elected to the Presidency of the USA!
Saints Row IV Coming in August
Deep Silver today announced the impending release of the newest entry in its pimp-slappin’ series, Saints Row IV, coming to consoles and PC in North America on Aug. 20, and in all other territories on Aug. 23.
The subhead on the press release? “Saints Row IV Announced, Bitchez.” Classy, no?
In this installment, the leader of the Saints has been elected President of the United States, which sounds like an arguably better version of reality than what we’ve had for the past decade or so. There’s an alien invasion to deal with, sci-fi weaponry to exploit, superpowers to be abused, and probably plenty of bitches and hos to slap around — and we’re not just talking about Congress.
