PostSubject: Saints Row 3   Wed Nov 23, 2011 12:50 am

Okay, I know the question you have. Is it game of the year, all years? Well, yes. And no. So um maybe


Day one:
The opening is BRILLIANT. I don't mean the first mission, though that's cool, too. You'll see what I mean. And shit.
The first thing I noticed is that the waypoint system, like, where it tells you to "GO HERE" on the actual gameplay screen and not the map, is totally ripped from Spider-Man 2. Not even joking.

My character is a white British male who greets his friends with It's Not Unusual and taunts his enemies with Nature Boy. Not the songs. The DANCING

Shaundi's voice actress has changed for the who cares it's Shaundi no one likes her
The "GET MISSIONS/MONEY CHECK SHIT UPGRADE CHECK MAP" menu is an iPhone. It's actually pretty neat.
Oh, and main character is fucking Dante. He can tar surf on people.

ACTIVITIES:
The absolute best one is Professor Genki's Super-Ethical Reality Climax. It's a fuck gauntlet of furries and energy drinks and hot dogs that want to kill you. Also FIRE WALLS and ELECTRICITY and PRESENTS MURDER TIME FUN TIME
Insurance Fraud is back and better than ever. In SR2, when you'd get hit by car before pressing LT/RT, you'd get NO POINTS NO MATTER HOW FAR YOU FLY That doesn't happen now. I think you get ~half. Also, it's easy. As fuck.
Mayhem is back and is still mediocre. Tank Mayhem is there, too, and is fun as fuck.
Tiger Escort is a letdown. It's like regular Escort, but with a tiger.
Snatch is the same as ever.
Trail Blazing is the same as ever.
Trafficking is the same as ever, only harder.

MISSIONS:
The fourth mission, main character guy and Pierce sing along to What I Got. Videogames moment of the millennium.
"oh fuck i love discounts" is an actual line. I swear I had no hand in this.
LIGHTCYCLE MISSION
The new Saints are, well, different. I like Oleg and Zimos. The other two are kind of cunts. Zimos is orgasmic enough for everyone, though.

SOUNDTRACK:
My playlist is four songs:
Live Wire
Next Girl
What I Got
You're the Best

MISCELLANEOUS:
MY ENTIRE GANG IS WEARING HOT DOG SUITS

PROBLEMS:
The Y button is both the "GET IN THE FUCKING CAR" and "GRAB A HUMAN SHIELD" button, leading to "FUCK GET IN THE GODDAMN CAR NO DON'T GRAB HIM NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO"
The accelerator is on RT instead of A. I SURE DO LOVE WHEN THEY CHANGE CONTROL SCHEMES MIDSERIES Also, you can't change it.
ACHIEVEMENTS ARE GLITCHED
I'm missing at least three story-related achievements. I was missing the achievements for completing Professor Genki's Super-Ethical Reality Climax and Insurance Fraud, but loading my save gave them to me. Still missing story ones.

So far, though, I've laughed hard enough to render these problems overlookable sort of if I get a patch for the achievements

Got achievements working, which is good, since I got a lot today.

Trail Blazing (the non-lightcycle one) was fraught with "where the fuck am i going", since I was concentrating on what I was doing rather than where I was going.
Mayhem is only hard because of the lack of anything. Anything being people, cars, etc.

I have a triple-barrel shotgun that lights people on fire. That's three barrels. Of fire.

One mission is played Purple-style (naked) while high. Highlight lines include:
"so this is what it's like to be shaundi"
"you're handling this naked thing a lot better than i thought you would" "I'M NAKED?!"
I've also noticed British voice actor is a lot more, well, British now, saying things like "bollocks" and "sod", and calling girls "love".
ALSO I fucking HATE that news lady. Her voice is ABSURDLY ANNOYING.

I also can't wait for the thrilling conclusion to Pierce and Oleg's chess match. Pierce appears to be winning, but I feel Oleg will get a second wind. More updates as they occur.

The VTOL is the best thing. It's like the Hydra in San Andreas, if I'd learned how to use the jets properly. Oops.

Okay, after getting both endings, I can definitely say this game is game of the year, all years.
The two endings both feel very Saints Row-y but have very different tones; one dark/serious with a bit of humour, the other just over the top and retarded. In a good way, though.

Everything in this game is done masterfully. Every weapon, from the generic pistol to the baseball bat to the rocket launcher, can be made into something cool, unless it's already cool, in which case you can do fuck all.
The "choices" you make aren't forced down your throat. The game even tells you what will happen. Sort of. It says "doing x will get you y and doing a will get you b".
The game also features the best cameo ever.
Spoiler:
 

The achievements are easy to moderate when not glitched, so I'll be going for 1,000/1,000. At worst, they're a bit boring (You're My Hero! comes to mind).

I can't say enough about this game. Nearly every mission and character is crafted to be I AM SO-GAY, funny, over the top and/or just badass. The main character's "I MIGHT DIE" confession is just... wow.
Spoiler:
 
It adds a layer of depth to the game never before seen. And shit.

Also, I'd say not playing as the British guy or the Russian chick misses the point of the whole game.

OVERALL I GIVE THIS AN 11/10
I seriously can't praise it highly enough, which means none of you will buy it.
Just like everything else I like.

Today I realised that I made the highest ratio achievement much harder for myself.
In the game, there are ~forty challenges that you can complete for cash/respect. Some involve destroying cars, killing people or even car surfing. Most are easy, if a bit grindy (600 seconds of car surfing?! that may sound like ten minutes but it's actually over an hour).
However, I fucked myself over by taking all the gang territory before getting "taunt 50 gang members". See, you have to taunt them while they're neutral to you, i.e. walking on the street. That shit doesn't happen when you take all the gang territory.
So I have a couple options:
1: Start a Mayhem and get some to spawn, then quit out of it, thus preventing them from caring about me. However, nine times out of ten, they either disappear or get back in their car, which fucking sucks.
2: Some Deckers seem to spawn outside one of my safehouses when I load up the game. What I need to do there is find the largest group (usually three) and taunt the shit out of them, then save and reload. Ad infinitum.
3: Take my second save and redo all my progress on it, which would set me back to the stone age, pretty much.

Of course, none of this takes into account any of the other terrible grindy ones I have left.

Well, I was sort of wrong. The assassinations and chopshop missions were pretty fun.

Can't wait for The Trouble with Clones to ruin it.

Things apparently cut from SR3:

A parkour/run and gun mechanic called "Freegunning".
The original storyline where you were a cop infiltrating the Saints.
A Zimos-like autotuned voice option for your character.
The rickshaw explosions (before someone snuck in and turned it back on without telling anyone)

And other stuff making up about 4000 man hours.

This game could have gone really wrong...
