Instead of making Saints Row 5 - they make whatever this trash is?

RIP

They don't have the Saints Row IP dumbass.

Uh, it has playable characters from previous saints row games and is built in the same universe.

Then there's this little snippet straight from their official steam page:

What is Agents of Mayhem?

Agents of MAYHEM is the latest open-world, third-person action game from the creators of the Saints Row franchise!

So yeah.

Dumbass.

-edit- Oh, and i think you will find their parent company owns both volition and the saints row ip.

Yes the game is set in the same universe, and yes the Publisher Deep Silver now owns the right to Saints Row IP, it doesn't mean that they are going to put out another game with the same IP. Especially considering SR4 wasn't all that good or sold well.

I mean, there's a lot wrong with your post:

* Yes, Deep Silver owns Saints Row. It also owns Volition. So, therefore, Volition does own the IP, because their parent company does.

* SR4 has an 86% on Metacritic, would imply that it actually was "all that good."

* SR4 sold a million copies in its first week, which would imply it sold fairly well.

Volition doesn't own SHIT. The Publisher Deep Silver does. And you're saying there is a lot wrong in my post?!?
Deep Silver owns Volition, and unless something in the gaming universe changed, if the company that owns you says "make X game" that's what you do.

And a million copies is good for the first week, hell it's even great, but long term it didn't have the staying power of Saints Row 3. And overall received a 75% to 86% metacritic score depending on which system.

All I know is, if I get into a car in 99% of the FPS games that you can get into a car, I'm going to lay on the horn if I feel like it. That shouldn't be a bannable offense. The fact that it is, is a fault of the developer(s) or whomever they chose to run their servers/client list/whatever.

*BEEP BEEP* You're about to get run over by a damned jeep, in a FPS! Classic Battlefield. Apparently it's sacrilege in PUBG.

I don't like people deliberately trolling others, but the horn thing seems extremely minor. Why put the horns in if they are only going to ban 'regular' people to protect 'privileged' streamers? Mind boggling.


So what is happening is, trolls are watching the streamers, and keep joining and leaving games until they are in the same game as the player, then finding a vehicle (which I think is pretty static on the map), going to where the streamer is and laying on the horn. Basically they are virtually stalking the streamer.
The Devs can tell when people are purposely joining and exiting games to find a streamer, and then take action. It's not some random thing.

Downloaded the update this morning on my PS4. Got in the game saw a few of the new additions, then teleported back to my base, stepped out the front door and through the ground into limbo. I think I'll shelve this again until they patch the new update. Annoyed

That was the new portal system right?

Holy shit they have added "limited co-op".

I've got a Logitech G5 that i've been using for a good 9 years now and it's still going strong and is awesome. I have 2 of them.. best mouse i've ever owned.

I have the same mouse and love it with 1 exception... the height of the mouse wheel sits quite a bit higher then the last logitech mouse I bought to replace the MX 518 (still have it and use it as a backup if I need to take a mouse to my sisters house, DEATH TO TOUCHPADS!).

I am done with Intel, sticking with AMD processors for the near future. At least with AMD I don't have to get a new motherboard with every new generation.

Currently running a 1700 with fast memory and it competes with any other Intel processor.

Why are you upgrading every generation of processor and motherboard? Hell I'm still rocking my 5 year old system (just added 8 more gigs of ram to 16, and a 1070 video card)?

As for Intel vs AMD/ATI... what exactly is your system and what "any other Intel processor" are you competing with?

Really Rigs? Sony twisted Sean's arm to flat out lie over and over?

Portals were suppose to be part of the original game? I pretty much sucked up every bit of game before it's launch and never remember portals being shown or even mentioned, if you can provide a link that would be great.

And No Man's Sky still doesn't hold a candle to the X series or Elite: Dangerous.

If the whole permadeath thing turns out to not be true, then these devs are really freaking dumb. Why announce it's in there if it isn't, because all it does is make people NOT BUY YOUR GAME for something that's maybe not even true.

Way to kill yourselves there, fellas. Brilliant thinking. I'm sure your marketing peon is sitting there wrenching his shoulder askew trying to pat himself on the back.

You mean like a certain game that just hit 1 year old that promised a galaxy to explore with multiplayer?


That being said I can understand WHY they said it. In my opinion, they said it so you would become even more attached to character and take more care to keep her alive.

"Since everyone is burned out on Borderlands, and our Borderlands 3 tech video didn't even nudge anyone awake, we need to put some sort of TOP SECRET announcement that is or is NOT in development"


1 v 1 strategy metagame with collectible cards. I'd say they are missing Zombies, WW2, Dinosaurs, and MOBA but they already tried the MOBA thing.

It's roughly a 6 hour Art game with minor puzzles, and some pretty lackluster combat. But the art/audio/story seem to knock it out of the park.

That GoT VFX video was impressive (I saw the last one they did about BoB). I guess I should actually watch the series at some point.

And the Sea Fleas..... holy shit watch the video the dad made in the article.

And thanks Blue... we were getting close on the appliance disaster deadline.
