Saints Row The Third Catch-All

Looks like they acknowledged the problems this game has on AMD GPUs. I had to go down to DirectX 9 to get the game to run without dropping down to sub 10 fps every couple of minutes on some pretty good hardware.

Huh, I've had zero problems running it with a 5770.

We've had this conversation way up thread. I know it's not everybody, but there's a group of people who have this issue with DirectX 11.

Everybody can stop rubbing in how great things run for you

Huh, that's super odd and totally weird, as my previous card, an AMD Radeon HD 5870, which is an AMD card, ran it just fine on DX11, which is not DX9. I mean, no problems at all.

Hey.

Mannish.

I have this on pc and get all kinds of funkiness where sound (particularly voices and sound effects) cut out randomly. It's really messed up story sequences so far, but I'm only about an hour or so in.

Having just sunk 60 hours into Skyrim, I still declare Saints Row the Third as my 2011 GOTY. No contest.

(crossposted from the Steam Sale thread) I grabbed a copy of "Saint's Row 3 Franchise Pack" (game plus all of the DLC) during the (brief?) pricing error in the closing hours of the Steam Sale. I figured I'd help out a GWJer who might miss it. Uncharacteristically, it ended up being mispriced for like twelve hours.

So now I have this copy laying around in my Steam Inventory. It was supposed to be $25, but it was listed for $13.29. Not looking to make a profit; I just want my $13 back. =) If you would like it, please PM me. Thanks!

You're a good man, Archangel. An outstanding man, really. I mean, look, you're going to take a $0.29 hit for whoever takes that offer, plus the cost of the Paypal transaction. You spent your extra, hard-earned money on something that couldn't possibly benefit you, purely out of the goodness of your heart and your generosity to your fellow Goodjer. Anyone who would do such a thing is truly a pillar of our community, and I salute you, as well as anyone else who might have had such kindness and foresight.

On another note, I totally did that too, so I'm going to make the same offer. $13 and my extra franchise pack is yours. Sold!

I just made the menu theme music my ringtone. I don't think I'll ever answer a phone call again.

I have been debating making my ring-tone the same as the in-game one... and I'll have a similar reaction but for a different reason.

There is a bat. A purple.... wobbly.... bat. It looks like a penis. What the frak game is this? I may have also, possibly, gone on a killing spree with it and whomped some people with it. I can't confirm that of course. Just sayin'.

Welcome to the crew! Your shipment of cocaine, pogo sticks and feathered hat is on the way.

Whenever pedestrians give me the finger, I nail 'em with a running suplex, whip out the floppy dilder bat, and proceed to bash 'em senseless.

Spoiler:

Sometimes I do it in SRIII.

This humorous response has just made it clear to me that Saints Row needs an item-trading feature like TF2's hats.

That's a great feature for future games to copy, as is damn near every part of Dark Souls' multiplayer. How cool would it be to have your own graffiti tag (possibly the tag of your gang, The South Side Stans), and to be able to mark territories with it? If you saw an opposing gang's tag, you could invade one of its members' games and battle for territorial supremacy.

Saints Row 4 and the Incredible Online Adventures of the Boss!

It would be like CrimeCraft or APB but not boring and glitchy.

Whoa, I posted that and moments later, Saints Row Tweeted that Darksiders 2 has item trading! Mind blown.

Quick! Suggest The Next Great Sequel in the Saints Row Franchise should have destructible environments on par with Red Faction Guerilla!

Let's make this happen!

Don't forget to fully upgrade the flashbangs.

They become Farts in a Jar

Ah, was wondering how you get those. I saw the achievement for that and just had to laugh. It's actually a fun game just to go and do whatever. Even running people over is rewarded. Also nut shots. The only other game I remember that rewarded nut shots was Fallout 2. I like this developer!

I just picked up the game on the Steam Sale, and put about ten hours in so far. I ran into a spot last night that made me laugh:

I was cruising across one of the 4 lane bridges blowing by cars while racking up near misses, when I popped into an intersection that was half-blocked-off by "road closed" signs. I dodged left, barely missing the road block and the vehicles parked within the pylons. I whipped a sh*thook to go back and see what was going on and was treated to the sight of 8-10 city workers standing around doing... nothing.

I literally laughed out loud at the apt characterization of a stereotype that I witness off and on throughout the year.

It was subtle, and awesome.

Yeah, while I wrote that I was thinking that I haven't seen him around for a while... Maybe just not in the same threads. There's a grinder 'round here with his avatar though.

I have played this game for more than an hour and I have yet to kill anybody with a giant purple dildo...I WAS PROMISED GIANT PURPLE DILDOS!!!!!!!!

Having tons of fun so far though, although I am finding that it controls like crap with mouse and keyboard

I hear it works well with an Xbox 360 controller.

Yeah, the controller support is excellent. You just plug it in and it goes. Auto-changes the button prompts and everything. And you can switch seamlessly between controller and M&K without even having to go into a menu to switch.

Have patience. You'll get your dildo soon enough.

My copy of the big SR3 pack is still available; see earlier post on this page. Even though I was sniped by A Certain Claw Shrimp on this thread -- presumably due to his mighty not-doodle-bug powers -- I'm not bitter or anything. Same offer, $13. Tell your friends, makes a great pet, goes well with the drapes, etc.

Yep. I had a controller plugged in for the driving and M&K for everything else.

You guys weren't lying. This game is fun.

Don't hate the non-doodle bug, hate the non-doodle game.

The next game should be called Saints Row 4 Life
