    Dude, there's TF2 cross-promotions in dozens of games. Like the town bicycle, TF2 gets around.

    And I don't think it's necessarily a good thing.

    But bad marketing? That's just IP promiscuity. Team Fortress is a randy little minx, and Saints Row's milkshake brings all the boys to the yard.

    This. Saints Row 2 was a GTA clone - in fact it was at it's best when it was most like a direct sequel to some of GTA's finest moments. The real shame here is that GTA4 was nothing like a GTA game and Saints Row had to fill the void. This is okay, and the seriousness worked for me - there's room for both types.

    Saints row 3 however was truly... well - Zombie Apocalypse. really?

    There's awesome and there's too far. SR3 went too far at times, for me, and the dominatrix expansion sounded like yet another step in the wrong direction which is why I'm not that psyched about turning this into a full "sequel" until I see actual gameplay footage proving otherwise (and before anyone makes up stuff I didn't say - I don't want it to be like GTA4, but SR2 had a far better srsbsns/drama to over-the-top nonsense ratio).

    Yeah, it was awesome - I really enjoyed it. But, I'd really enjoy a Saints Row 4 that dialed it back towards Vice City levels, I just find the absurdity better with a straight face.

    Saints Row 3 was at it's best in it's silliest moments. Zombie Apocalypse. Burt Reynolds. Zimos' rescue. More, I say!

    I'm still not sure if the superpowers in the expansion made the game go too far or not...

    I think the thing that bugged me the most was actually a lack of consistency. I absolutely loved the insanity, but the game just wasn't very consistent. I was more offended by the bits where they apparently decided just to skip out on story chunks (or that "canon" ending that makes it impossible to access some characters after the main story ends) than anything.

    Honestly, if they make a more consistent story that doesn't leave anything out, and if they make the town more easily navigable (like Saint's Row 2--I played the game once and could still get to pretty much anywhere from memory), they'll have made the perfect Saint's Row.

    I wouldn't mind a more mature game (but really, using Red Dead as an example? that was like... a high school student's attempt at Peckinpah), but I wouldn't want it to be Saint's Row.

    Fair point. I think I preferred Saints Row 2 - but that's just because I played many more hours, and I preferred the system of unlocking new abilities by doing well in events, ect.

    It was awesome to unlock nil fall damage and jump off the ultor tower - hitting the ground from 500 feet and bouncing gets me all teary eyed for SR2.

    I never played Saints Row 2 and I saw Saints Row (1) at some Game Expo and that looked embarassing. But I got Saints Row 3 exactly because of the way it was. It's one of the few titles that I knew I will want and would be good so I even Pre-Ordered it and I don't do that with a great many games...

    If anything they should make the next game more like Saints Row 3 and go overboard even further with whatever they can come up. And I also got a friend to buy it since I wanted to play it Co-Op.
