Saints Row The Third Catch-All

Maybe, but I spent like 2 hours last night driving a tank around squashing cars for property damage, all the while giggling like a little kid at how much fun it was for a well-placed main gun shot to show like 20 different dollar amounts pop up. :D

You should probably get used to that "giggling" thing. Also, as hard as it is to believe, the game continually gets more ludicrous and over-the-top. You ain't seen nothing yet.

I get homesick for Saints Row 3.

Think I'm on my 4th playthrough currently...

It's amazing how long it took video games to finally nail something as pure and simple as taking a joyride in a tank. It has tracks and it crushes other vehicles into pancakes. That is all I've ever wanted. That's all. SR3 gives me that and so much more.

Also occured when I realized that I could dress up my characters in any clothing regardless of gender. Funny being called "totally gansta!" when I'm in a bright blue tube top and fish nets with a combat helmet and army backpack with sandals on. That didn't last though, started to hurt my eyes, now I got more of a professional movie hitman thing going on with some of the steam punk stuff from Nobody Loves Me.

Yeah, that's me as a toilet.

Among many other reasons to love SRTT, possibly the 3 best uses of licensed music in gaming history are all in this game. One of them nearly made me roll off of my couch I was laughing so hard.

I won't spoil any of them, but I'd give nearly anything to be able to experience them for the first time again. Right now I'm in the middle of my third playthrough (this time, with the PC version hooked up to my big screen. So much goodness).

This, a million times over, sorry, missed this post before... when I realized that I was rolling over cars rather than them just exploding upon touching me, total win. I actually purposefully failed one mission like 3 times just to roll over them and see the tanktreaded cars I was pooping out.

The best part is when you're playing co-op and you crush half of the other player's car. It'll burst into flames pretty quickly but for a few moments they can still drive it!

So I just realized that I have a character dressed as a lucha libre wielding a gun that shoots mind-controlling squid that just parachuted into a penthouse.

This is what Just Cause 2 is like on drugs, isn't it?

Although the dlc was a bit meh because I had was invicibile and couldn't turn it of, and sadly I wasn't playing co-op. That said the one scene was worth all the dlc combined:

Spoiler:

When you are running around on saints floor spiked with radition giving you superpowers. It's just damn awesome.

I think I missed that part. When was that?

Part of The Trouble With Clones.

I played it, but it was the most forgettable of the three DLC campaigns for me.

I was sorely disappointed the didn't include something that would give you that effect in normal play once you beat the DLC, maybe as a level 50 upgrade.

Played more last night but avoided the tanks because I did want to get something done other than lots of car pancakes.

What... Genki's Super Ethical... what now? I like the commentary going on as it reminds of that Japanese gameshow that was on Spike (MxC?) that was dubbed over with completely different audio tracks. But that is just too weird, even for me. That said, I did make like $10k in 3 easy runs in only a few minutes. Helpful to buy up some properties really quick to get my hourly income going.

Professor Genki's Super-Ethical Reality Climax was one of the highlights of the game for me!

It's funny, just totally bizarre, I just wish there were more tracks for the commentary. If I hear that story about the sanitation truck and the convertable one more time...

Each instance should have a different commentary track. There's also a DLC pack with different types of Genki missions.

Yeah, and I got that as part of the Complete Pack, I just haven't touched the DLC yet as I have only just now gotten past the introductions to extracurricular activities and am now making headway into some more of the actual story.

Started a second play through after picking this up on the steam sale. So much fun. I love the little touches like jumping into cars through the wind shield and sprinting past civilians and hitting them with a wrestling move.

I really hope we get a saints row 4.

Anyone else get this for PS3 by the way? Been playing it since I got it, but ONE irritant came to mind just now. It access the HDD like a LOT. Like I hear it constantly going, at first I thought it was for the music in the vehicles, but... no, basically if I'm moving, it's loading stuff, really getting a little annoying at this point.

From what I understand they were going to put that in the "Enter the Dominatrix" expansion, which has since become a full-blown sequel.

My name is Rallick and I approve this message.

I think it's a pretty sure thing, considering how successful 3 was. The only question is who will be funding it, and how they manage Volition.

As steam slowly downloads this, I was wondering if running co-op spoils any story stuff, or if you can have different games for single/multiplayer.

Essentially, I have no idea about this game at all, other than you guys rave about it, and it has some rather abnormal weapons available.

Excellent that you jumped on board! I bought it last year at Christmas on the GWJ word of mouth, and now I'm a slobbering fanboy.

Co-op is the exact same story as single player, so if you join someone else's game, you'll be at whatever part of the story they're up to. Of course, you can still have a lot of fun in co-op while completely ignoring the story missions.

It was actually a gift from sr_malo! The kind gent that he is!

Ah, a bit like bordelands then (which I'm also new to). Looks like I'll give it a shot myself, and then after much hilarity, convince some friends to buy it next time it's on the cheap (which is all the time).

Don't know why Steam is so slow for downloading this game (220kbps). Come onnnnn!
