I'd much rather play a full sequel in a new setting than a 1-2 hour DLC for $15

Posted by kkotd

@Demoskinos: In an age where most people don't buy $60 games at launch, can that argument really be used though? As I stated before, Darksiders, another great game, didn't catch on until it was in the $29.99 bin, SR3, went on sale really quickly as well. While both games were great, I really wonder at how much the retail copies actually made for them compared to the post purchase DLC.

Also, to everyone wondering about the Season Pass, it wasn't a real Season Pass, it gave you 2 additional campaigns and the Nightblade pack, not all the DLC, so even if Dominatrix wasn't a standalone, it wasn't going to be included anyways.

Is it a bad thing that I didn't care for the DLC of the game?

There is no such thing as contrived or stupid in Saints Row! If they want him back he'll be back and it's going to make as much sense as everything else! :D

I'm not sure how many more games the Saints Row series has left in it, so it's probably a good idea to churn out another sequel before having to switch gears towards next-gen development.

Posted by bingbangboom

I honestly think Jason Rubin needs to do some damage control with his comments about Saints Row. This is currently their best IP/Franchise and he basically said it was not his cup of tea because of the dildos. Restricting it or making it more "real" takes away from what makes it unique. I could see Volition members just leaving THQ to form their own company.

Can I get a preorder for "Saint's Row: TNGSitSRF"?

Saints Row:The Next Great Sequel in the Saints Row Franchise is going to be awesome.

Posted by Springfart

would be pretty awesome if they actually called it that

Posted by louiedog

I'm playing the second game right now because of PS+. I missed it when it first came out and experiencing it for the first time after Saints Row 3 really highlights how great SR3 was. I'm still enjoying SR2 a lot, but the writing, missions, and mechanics in SR3 all seemed to be so perfectly in the service of making the game as fun as possible. Yes, there's more going on in SR2, but I think the quality of everything in SR3 is much higher. I really hope they maintain that in this sequel and that it doesn't just get pushed out to capitalize on the great thing that they created.

I look forward to a misleading Brian Crecente headline over at The Verge.

Mixed feelings, played the shit out of the game but the DLC was bad, didn't want to pay $40 or more for this if it was anything like the other DLC, running out of things to actually buy and play this year. Oh well, it'll make Tingsitsurf that much better.

Posted by MistaSparkle

Now, THAT is a title!

Posted by Gatehouse

That is the perfect name for a fourth Saints Row game. Long live the insanity!

Posted by Enigma777

I am happy and sad at the same time.

Posted by Godlyawesomeguy

I want the sequel to be named Saints Row The Third- II.

Kind of surprising. I figured that THQ wanted some quick Saint's Row cash this year.

Hard to feel confident about a Saints sequel which is partially a scrapped expansion pack and being funded by a publisher with cash problems. Hope it turns out well for Volition.

Pfft. Their cash problems aren't so bad that they're just going to sink for (seemingly) no reason like Studio 38. They're hurting, but they ain't on the brink of death.

Oh, and Super Mario Galaxy 2 was also originally a "scrapped expansion," so don't you worry 'bout that. Why leave awesome shit to an expansion pack when it could be put to use in a full game? Waste of cool ideas, in my opinion!

Posted by gbrading

If it means there will be a Saints Row Goes Fourth then yes please. Also, they can use that name for free. I'm sure Blackadder wouldn't mind.

Posted by wardcleaver

At some point, when I am in the mood for an open-world game, I will pick this up.

He was cloned as a Brute guy like Oleg. Also his name is Johnny Tag now.

This. This sums up my feelings on the SR2 vs SR3 thing. There's less in SR3, but all of it is way better.

Good to hear, I thought the expansion idea was dumb and can't wait for Saints Row 4. Should be awesome

Just let him come in and focus test every couple weeks.

Also, don't hire any other focus testers.

I feel the same. I mean i loved SR3 and all. But who knows how many more ideas they have a Volition besides "YO THAT EXPANSION WE WERE SUPPOSED TO RELEASE? LETS JUST MAKE IT A FULL GAME". I do remember hearing that the people responsible with writing/storyline decisions already had a pretty well-plotted out idea for The Next Great Sequel In The Saints Row Franchise(working title) . But who knows how many of those ideas had to be scrapped simply to ship a game as fast as possible.

Saints Row: The Third II: Electric Boogaloo

Posted by MordeaniisChaos

Good. That first game was hugely flawed especially the bits that were genuinely fantastic. Come back to us when you figure out how to pace a campaign and how not to ruin awesome setpieces by doing them 3 times with them all being way too long from the start. Fix the crummy side missions. Let more than two miserable players coop. I get why everyone adored the game, and in a shorter, less open world (the open world aspect had zero value beyond super fun driving making joyrides enjoyable) or more impressively open world, more focused game I would have loooooooved the game. Some parts were genius, some were just broken, boring, or dumb. And with how they did DLC in the past, I don't want more. I trusted them, bought the season pass hoping for more condensed awesomeness like the very start and the mars ending of the game. Instead I had a miserable, boring, short, but still dragged out experience every godamn time.

Posted by drag

hope they take across some of the features they were talking about - super powers? shit like that, let's do it.

also destructible buildings but you know, that won't happen ever. but.

Posted by Commisar123

Okay sure, but I hope they don't take too much of that into the next game. I'm still hoping for the Saint's War story line

Posted by JamesJeux007

Best game name EVER ! I completely agree, they should totally keep that name xD

Fuck off THQ, Volition needs to bail faster than a virgin in a whore house. Seriously, THQ is digging their death bed, Dominatrix was going to bring them funds to survive and now they're waiting til 2013!?! They won't be financially alive that long! FFS why did Rubin even come to take this over if not to just run it into the ground? Because that's exactly what he's doing with these 'new company virtues' and 'trying to keep things respectable for the company's best interest'. Because we all know closing a studio the day before E3 and then calling another studio embarrassing in the same week is completely respectable and in the company's best interest.

The sales numbers from a stand alone expansion are probably so much less than a full release that it did not make sense. THQ is still 1 major release bombing from going bankrupt, so in the short term to medium term having slightly more revenue probably would not matter all that much (e.g. Darksiders II bombs and they are just as bankrupt with a 2012 stop-gap as if they trucked on to a full 2013 release, but this way they have a solid potential payback....).

Yeah I felt the same way. SR2 had a lot of good ideas but they were bogged down with bad design and poor implementation. SR3 might not have as much stuff or options but it is a far more polished and just plain fun overall. SR3 is a game that knows what it is and what it wants to do and just runs hog wild with it all the way! A prime example of cathartic gaming ^^

Posted by Christoffer
The current working title for the game is "The Next Great Sequel in the Saints Row Franchise." Hell, they should just stick with that.

As long as it's not a subtitle but actually the full title, I agree. So much on the nose you can smell the 1950's Ford commercial... "it's a heck of a car"
