<div class="bbcode_quote_body">- THQ wants to give Volition enough time to finish the game this time because of GTA IV.

- Each character in the game has full access to the clothing palette. Want a "ghetto-brother" dressed in lingerie? No problem. That's why the character-editor is called "freak generator" internally.

- The game is set 15 years after Saints Row 1, many areas changed. To enter some new areas you have to use a boat or a plane. There will also be a helicopter

- Inspired by fans, the developers want to implement stunts as "mini-achievments", similar to the gaps in Tony Hawk's.

- You have to control your balance while car-surfing with the analog-stick now.

- Co-op mode via Xbox Live or local network.

- You can use other characters as a human shield now. Also you can shoot a pedestrian in the balls, then rubbernecks will gather around that person. This way you can hinder your haunters.

- You can also place limpet mines on cars... or walls... or on the backs of your enemies.

- You can improve your residence, this is shown as artwork in this scan on the upper left.

- The graphics improved a little and there shall be no more pop-ups. Also the weather effects looks "impressive", heat effects, rain etc. When it's raining the pedestrians use umbrellas.</div>

Please tell me you can use your old saved character for part 2. Reason being I created an exact likeness of my best friend(God rest his soul) who was murderd earlier last year so i am extremely interested in this game if that's the case. I have tried to recreate his likeness in several other games and have not been able to pull it off. Peace.

I don't mind as long it's not as laggy as when I use to play it. When I use to play Online it was unplayable why I stopped. I just play Saint Row SP still allot of fun. Throwing a pipe bomb into a car and seeing drive away and than blows up never gets old.



Online time Saints Row was not laggy was pre-Release(yes I had my copy 2 weeks before the release date). Not many people online but it was lag free and fun.



Saints Row 2 online going to be very creepy. Specially when Male can buy and wear bra.

<div class="bbcode_quote_body">New details have piled in on THQ sequel to Saint's Row, which is heading to Xbox 360 and PS3 next year.



According to the latest mag previews, Saint's Row 2 is set to feature a city 45 percent larger than the Xbox 360 original, with new vehicles including motorbikes, jet-skis and speedboats. So far, so GTA.



What's new though is the introduction of aircraft such as planes and helicopters, which excitingly you can smash right through buildings. You can't destroy buildings entirely (we don't think the US censors would be happy with that), but smashing through windows should open up plenty of gameplay opportunities.



Advertisement:

Hostages can now be taken and used as human shields, weapons can be dual-wielded and you can rip things out of the environment and use them as melee weapons.



Character customisation has also been enhanced with the option to tweak your characters sex; male, female or whatever's in-between. Transsexual gangsters are well on the agenda.



The most exciting feature of the sequel though, and probably the only real reason you should divert your excitement from GTA IV, is the promise of a full-on Crackdown-style co-op mode allowing you to play through the single-player campaign with a comrade.



Considering how brilliant Crackdown co-op was, this feature could be crucial. We'll let you know how it turns out.</div>

<div class="bbcode_quote_head">Quote:</div>
<div class="bbcode_quote_body">While the original Saints Row may have lacked the expertly executed satire and originality of the GTA series, it certainly made up for it with its mostly excellent controls, hilarious side missions and dazzling visuals. Saints Row 2, due sometime in 2008, builds on the original Xbox 360 crime sim and packs in some exceptional new features not yet seen in the genre. It’s aiming to be a serious threat to GTA IV’s world conquering plans.



Firstly, Saints Row 2 is packing a lot of elements that should have been included in the first place, namely aircraft. Fixed wing aircraft and helicopters are in, as are motorbikes, jet-skis, speedboats and more, and most of them will have performance upgrades available. The addition of aircraft in particular is handy given that the Stilwater location in SR2 will apparently be 45% larger than that of the first game.



If what little we have seen so far can be believed, you’ll also be able to fly right through a building! How cool is that? We can’t wait to cleave right through skyscraper penthouse to take out an enemy drug lord, and mutter something deadpan like, “Sorry to crash the party”. Entire buildings won’t be destructible – this isn’t an Al-Qaeda training simulator – but flying aircraft through windows certainly opens up a lot of cool new gameplay possibilities; a dogfight in and out of buildings with an army jet or police chopper would be particularly awesome.



Character customisation, which was already quite deep in the previous game, has been enhanced to the point where you can customise your character’s sex, or in the words of the developers, “you can play as a man, a woman or anything in between”. Yes, your dreams of controlling an Uzi-toting transsexual are about to come true (you sicko).



Players will now be able to take hostages and use them as human shields, which will apparently be particularly useful during interior combat. You can also dual-wield ranged firearms, and rip things out of the environment such as road signs and mailboxes to use as melee weapons, Incredible Hulk style. In fact, nearly every object in the game’s sprawling environment can be interacted with in one way or another.



One massive inclusion in the game is the online co-op mode. We’re not talking the watered-down two-player component from the last game, this is a substantial co-op mode that allows you to play through the entire story and all the side missions with a friend over Xbox Live, ala Crackdown. Can you even imagine how cool that will be? The developers are also promising additional mission objectives specific to the co-op mode in order to put a greater focus on teamwork.





Not only is the city of Stilwater much larger in SR2 than it was in the original, it’s also set to feature over 130 building interiors to explore and/or crash through, six new above ground districts and four underground, plus every district from the first game has been retouched and redesigned to make the experience seem fresh.



While Rockstar’s GTA IV seems to be focussing on realism, Saints Row 2 is shaping up to be an enjoyable hyper-realistic alternative. We’ll have more in the coming months, but for now we’ll leave you to ponder how much funnier throwing yourself in front of traffic during the Insurance Fraud missions will be with a friend.

<div class="bbcode_quote_head">Quote:</div>
<div class="bbcode_quote_body">The Xbox 360's first two Augusts were mighty good to third-party publishers. Last year, 2K made a huge splash at the gaming box office with BioShock, while Capcom and THQ each boasted a million-seller in August 2006, with Dead Rising and Saints Row, respectively. Sequels to all three pretty much inevitable , but the rist comfirmed release is this fall's Saints Row 2.



Set once again in the fictional metroplis of Stilwater, Saints Row 2 takes place several years after the first game's seemlingly permanent conclusion. Though it looked like your character was reduced to fleshy confetti in a boat explosion, think again: it seems you were merely horribly disfigured and left for dead. Yay! It's a convenient narrative justicification for Saints Row 2's character-creation system, whereby you'll rebuild your gangster from scratch as if you required major reconstructive surgery. Which, after being blown up, you did. and hey, you can now even choose to come back female. Wow, just how badly burned were you?



The city itself has changed, with new gang theats to battle, new buildings piercing the skyline, and new ways to get around, such as boats and other watercraft, motorcycles, planes, and helicopters. This urban sandboxer also promises better cop A.I., dual-weilding, and new weapons (such as laser-guided rocket launchers and satchel charges, to name a couple). You'll also find fresh activites like car surfing(which was the unoffical mini-game in GTA) and "testicular manslaughtor" (We don't need to explain this, do we?). And best of all, drop-in-anytime co-op play for the entire campaign. In addition, Voltion is promising a new adversarial multiplayer mode that goes beyond mere deathmatch.



If nothing else, the release of Raints Row 2 should prove one and for all wether the success of Volition's open-eded crime-fest was due more to timing (it shipped during the dry spell between STA releases) than it being the 360's first next-gen sandboxer. We've put our money on the quality of the orginal game, but with Saints 2 shipping just a few months after GTA IV this year (Perhaps in August, if they're a superstitious bunch?), its appeal will truly be put to the test.</div>

<div class="bbcode_quote_body">News of GTAIV being delayed till, eventually, April 29 was music to the ears of Saints Row developer Volition. It decided to fill the gaping void of pimpery and larceny by hastily announcing the sequel to its gangster-based open-world game.



The real crime here is that many people still dismiss the original Saints Row as having no personality of its own. In fact, the game unfurled more and more original features the more you played it. We still revisit Stilwater from time to time for a few rounds of the body-flinging ‘Insurance Fraud’ mini-game. Also, you can’t beat calling on the aid of finger-licking good ‘Chicken Ned’ to help you beat the crap out of the Vice Kings.



Saints Row ended with a pretty bleak outcome for the central characters, so we’re looking forward to finding out if any of them will make a return. We know for sure that it’s a direct continuation of events but set a full decade and a half later. According to Volition: ‘There’s a much darker and more sinister story that leads your character down a path of betrayal, revenge and redemption against the city that has left him for dead.’



Fifteen years have passed and the city has seen some changes. The level of detail has been significantly improved and pop-up also consigned to Stilwater’s distant past. From our first-look at the game, we can already see that Volition can cope with the challenge of creating brilliant-looking, open-world environments.



Addressing some complaints about the first title, you’ll now be able to play as a female gangster and the customisation options will be much greater. Rather than play as one of the three gangs from the original, you’ll be able to create an original syndicate from scratch, and create a unique look for your members.



We’ve been doing a bit of digging and from the cast list it appears as if the types of gangs you’ll encounter are going to be a lot more varied, too. One actor is listed as a ‘voodoo gang leader’ and another as ‘Ronin’ which suggests there’ll be a Japanese gang. At present, none of the main cast members have been revealed, but Volition has claimed it’s going to be announcing some big-name stars closer to release. You can also expect to hear an even more impressive soundtrack than before, with music that might reach out further than the original’s hip-hop roots.



While Volition has a tall order to win over GTAIV fans, Saints Row 2 isn’t due out until many months after Rockstar’s game. We’re hoping this will give Volition plenty of time to make this one a significant rival to the kingpin of crime.</div>

<div class="bbcode_quote">
<div class="bbcode_quote_head">Quote:</div>
<div class="bbcode_quote_body">March 3, 2008 - It's not easy for a company to make an open-world game that stands totally separate form the titan that is Grand Theft Auto. THQ went the opposite direction of other companies and decided to make their first entry into the free-roaming gangster genre what was essentially a re-skinned GTA. Luckily for the publisher no one had seen GTA on next-gen systems so Saints Row was their only option for a high-def world of free-roaming destruction. Now it's the year 2008, gamers everywhere are gearing up for Grand Theft Auto IV and yet the people at THQ don't seem worried. In fact, they seem downright confident that Saints Row 2 will be able to woo gamers away from Rockstar's latest. Just last week we got a look at a very early build and while we weren't allowed to delve deep into what the city of Stillwater holds this time around, we can say that the building blocks are once again in place for a rousing open-world thugfest.



As those who played through the first Saints Row know by now, your nameless character was taken out at the end of the storyline thanks to a well-timed boat bomb (like a car bomb, but on a boat). Somehow your kingpin survived the explosion, but not without serious cosmetic damage. Thus the fact that you begin the new storyline by reshaping your character's physique at a doctor's office in the big house is a bit more fitting. You'll later find out that it was actually the higher ups of your own gang who set you up to buy the farm, now it's up to you to rebuild the gang, exact some sweet revenge, and rid Stillwater of the new competing gangs.



Gone are the days of Los Carnales, the Vice Kings, and the Westside Rollerz and they've been replaced by three entirely new gangs. They have new personalities, new lieutenants commanding the peons to and fro, and new Hollywood voice talent to bring it all to life. Not only that, but the city of Stillwater has gone through a sort of time warp and has experienced 25-30 years worth of structural and cosmetic changes in the short time since the first game so things should feel totally different from the first go-round. Not only that, the Ultor Corporation (mentioned lightly in Saints Row) has taken over the city in order to "fix its problems." You can bet that it'll factor into the storyline in one way or another, but THQ is mum for the moment. The single gang that we were shown during our demo was known as Sons of Samedi. We weren't given much background information beyond the mission objective which was to blow up a certain number of trailers that were being used to run drugs.



While the option of chucking explosives into the trailers and blowing them up the old fashioned way was certainly readily available, the developer from Volition who was manning the demo had other things in mind. Since cars can be used to kill enemies in the game, why not go a different route and give them the ability to be converted into makeshift bombs? Well, thanks to the new satchel charge weapon, you can. Simply hop out of your ride, set a charge (or five) on the hood, get it going in the proper direction, ditch the whip and watch it careen into the side of the trailer as you press the detonate button. Fireworks abound! The more traditional gunplay is handled with a Gears of War style over-the-shoulder camera angle (toggled by a click of the right stick) which should please the many who despised the aiming in the first Saints.



The rest of our time in the Sons of Samedi mission was spent perusing the surrounding environment. It was a desert setting that didn't exactly fit with the metropolitan motif of the first game. The Volition representative used a debug (only accessible in early versions) cheat to hop to the location without actually driving there, so we don't know where it is in relation to the rest of the city. Still, the land was populated with mobile homes, traffic routes that featured random events like car crashes and people yelling at one another, and some hilariously inappropriate dialogue from spectating pedestrians.



While the mission looked fun and had the potential for plenty of mayhem, the real star of our demo was the aforementioned customization options that begin Saints Row 2. Everyone expects to be able to change your face, the length of your brow and the contours of your character's mouth, but Volition is taking things a few steps further. Now you'll be able to change their taunt, compliment, walk and combat styles. Taunt options include things like The Dumper, Dog Pissing, Ride the Donkey, The Wanker, and Tea Bag. We'll let your imagination run wild at those possibilities. The different walks range from Pimp Walk to Crazy Walk which makes your character look like a meth head for lack of a better term. Compliments can be as simple as a salute or as complicated as a full-blown riverdance. Those, along with a combat style, come together to create the personality of your gangster which will apparently change the way that characters in the world react to your actions. Also, unlike in the first Saints, your character will actually have plenty of dialogue (there are over 60,000 lines of dialogue throughout Saints 2) to push the plot along. Hooray for no longer being a mute!



Not only can you change the outward appearance and demeanor of your crusading hoodlum but you can also change the aesthetics of your home base – known as a crib for those living the thug life. You can upgrade your pad with things like a stripper pole, nicer electronics, and other trinkets that will help to impress your low life friends.



The rest of what we saw from Saints Row 2 felt very familiar. You can still load up your car with three other gang members to help you during some of the missions, but this time you'll have the option of more than a simple four-door auto. Jet skis, boats, planes, helicopters, and motorcycles will all be available at one point or another. The GPS system that was in the first returns again but this time it will reprogram itself with a new route should you stumble across a shortcut. Activities are also back with new additions to go along with the classic Insurance Fraud and Helicopter Assault but we weren't given examples. The respect system is also returning but has been tweaked a bit to change the way points are divvied up.





Saints Row 2 is poised to be the quintessential sequel with bigger sights and sounds and more things to do with your time. The multiplayer, which includes a full fledged co-op mode, is said to be totally revamped from the first Saints but no details were given beyond that. With more Hollywood talent, new locations, a few returning characters, new vehicles and a revamped customization system that allows for some truly ridiculous persona options, it looks like Saints Row 2 will be one to watch for when it releases later this year. Whether that means that people will forget about GTA IV to travel to Stillwater, well, that's another matter entirely.</div>

You know. I'm all for them doing good with Saint's Row 2, I did enjoy the first one.



But to think that they can compete with GTA4 is ridiculous. They won't get anywhere's near the sails of GTA.



However, if they waited awhile, and hit people when GTA gets a little rusty. They'd do alot better.



The worst part is that they have already gone on the record saying that Saints Row 2 will ship with bugs. That just tells me it could use more development time which they should be taking anyways.



Whatever, I don't plan on picking this up day one cause I'm sure I'll have my fix with GTA4 but maybe later next year when there is a dry spell of games in the summer months ill give it a shot.

Re: Official Saints Row/ Saints Row 2 Discussion



^ all games have some sort of bug. I will bet GTA IV will have plenty of bugs. Even the last preview IGN stated they ran into a few problems.



- Saints Row 2 should be out in during the Summer.



One thing GTA has never done right was gun play, SR did it right from the start. Most previews say SR gun play is still miles ahead than GTA IV gun play.



I know I'll be picking up Saints Row 2 on Day 1. Liked the first, with he added features, going add hours and hours of fun.



Some going disagree with me on this. SR and GTA IV are very different games. May looks the same but they play differently.

Yeah, I'm glad that they are sticking with "Hyper-realism" I think they called it cause if they tried to go realistic it would kinda ruin the experience.



And yeah, games have bugs. It just worries me that they are going out of there way of telling people now. I may be wrong, it just makes me think, they kno its going to be a fucked up game from the start so they're warning.



I do keep here that the SR shooting is better.



I don't know, I just feeling like they're setting it up to fail releasing it that close, which would be a shame.



Well see how it turns out though.

I have a feeling SR will be pushed way back end of 2008 or even 2009. May not have to worry about GTA IV.



I just pray the GTA IV gunplay can try to match SR.

<div class="bbcode_quote_head">Quote:</div>
<div class="bbcode_quote_body">I'm hanging out at Volition in a cozy darkened side room, waiting for their presentation on Saint's Row 2 to begin. Producer Greg Donovan (right) is with me and we sit there a bit awkwardly, waiting for the game's Lead Designer, James Tsai (left), to join us.



It's not Donovan's fault that things are weird. Someone has painstakingly setup a small table filled with various drinks and snacks that, as Donovan explains, "aren't there everyday."



Things are weird because I have an absurd headache on top of an even more absurd head cold making me a complete bitch to talk to. Donovan breaks the silence again.



"I saw you ran that quote." What quote? Oh, right, where he said that Saint's Row 2 would have bugs.



"Yeah, the internet just went crazy on that one," I respond.



"95% of gamers aren't even going to come across them," he assured me.



Tsai arrived moments later, and we loaded up Saint's Row 2. Donovan had to be at least a little relieved.





Saint's Row 2 takes place an unspecified number of years after Saint's Row 1 (though ironically, the development of Saint's Row 2 began with a small team of people before Saint's Row 1 was even out).



Your friends have betrayed you, and you'll have to start building the Saints from scratch. Tsai explains, "The player comes back, he's pissed, and he does some nasty things...you are definitely a criminal this time around."



Unfortunately, you choose to wear purple once again.



Starting with the character creation screen, I immediately see that SR1's robust character customization engine has gotten some major upgrades. To start, your model looks better, a Calvin Cline underwear ad adorning shader-chiseled muscles.



While players will still not be able to face map with the LIVE camera, the seemingly endless sliders should make up for it. I particularly enjoyed watching models be subjected to the age slider. Let's just say moobs become moooobs.



Apparently Lead Designer Tsai is a huge fan of wrestling games. And the influence is undeniable as you look through various animations that you can now assign your character. Everything from the style of gait to combat techniques, players will find more movements unlocked as they play. But the animations are a lot more than just a bonus for completion—they really signify SR2.



Open up the taunts, for instance. Your character can flip someone the bird. They can do the famous throat cut. Or, in a turn to the absurd, they can squat down on someone and gesture defecation complete with butt waggling.



Donovan explains, "We gave up any pretense of being authentically hip hop."



Everything is streamlined for fun. While SR2 will feature a compelling story with a near feature-length set of cut scenes, players can make the choice constantly to have a serious or outright zany experience. Create a hard-nosed gangster or create a computer geek with a pot belly. No one's gonna judge you.



They take me through the example mission and I see one of the new area expansions to the game's 1.5x larger city. You are in a dusty, almost wild west world. It's a trailer park, and you're here to blow it up. Running into one of the 130 new internal environments, you grab some satchel charges (essentially sticky grenades that can be remotely detonated).



Heading around outside, Tsai dropped bombs in dramatic sequence, blowing up trailers one after another. He spoiled an otherwise impressive street of open world AI and animation at its finest, in which I'd seen a jogger tie their shoe, a power walker anally strut past, an old man hobbling slowly and one guy lounged out on a beach chair (who I was assured would get up and go about his day if we'd watched him long enough.)



But Tsai wasn't content with spoiling a good day. He's played the mission before. So he opts to throw a satchel charge onto a jogger instead of the next trailer. It seems like a normal enough decision as it sticks to the side of her head like a lopsided cubic afro. Then he throws another and another. Now the jogger is having a tough time jogging. Finally, Tsai steps back and blows her up with a massive explosion. She shoots 50 feet into the air...then he hits the trigger again...and again, "juggling" the innocent in mid air.



I could act mature about the situation now, but I chuckled.



The neat thing about this sort of debauchery is that Saint's Row 2 will reward you for it. Called "diversions," these mini achievements are built for fucking around and will earn you "respect" that's usable in the storyline. "Chances are, if you try it, it's been done," Donovan assures me, meaning that the game will acknowledge any feat you throw at it. And it's an idea that's long overdue in a genre in which gameplay so often...digresses.



But what I didn't get a chance to see was the game's co-op. The full campaign supports two players ala Crackdown. Oh, and those "diversions" we talked about above? They will include co-op combos, as well as the rare moment when you might actually try to harm your friend in crime with a submachine gun.



"It will be a lot of fun," said Tsai. "In Crackdown, players sort of had this static objectives...in SR2 our missions are a lot more complex, we're actually forcing more interaction."



I ask him why we've seen co-op games explode in the last few years.



Tsai laughs and lets me in on his personal theory. "All the guys like you and me who grew up playing...Contra, Ikari Warriors, Jackal...have disposable income." He's probably right.



After talking to Donovan and Tsai and seeing the game, those still bent on fueling some war between GTAIV and Saint's Row 2 need to realize something...in what is maybe the crudest analogy I've ever put to print.



Rockstar is like Hugh Hefner. They create a product that hides behind (what is often) a facade of high artistic vision. Volition is more like Larry Flynt, not shying away from what they purport the audience is really looking for—the gynecologically precise experience of juggling a woman in mid-air with properly timed sticky bomb explosions—fulfilling your deepest id impulses, spread eagle on your monitor.



"They're gonna do what they're gonna do," Donovan said. "That's actually a good thing for players."</div>

Re: Official Saints Row/ Saints Row 2 Discussion


<div class="bbcode_quote">
<div class="bbcode_quote_head">Quote:</div>
<div class="bbcode_quote_body">March 28, 2008 - The gangster lifestyle has been popularized to the nth degree since Grand Theft Auto first burst onto the scene so many years ago. In August of 2006 Saints Row released to the Xbox 360 as the first, of what was then known as next-gen, free-roaming killing sprees. The nature of the original Saints Row was about delivering over-the-top characters and action set in a grizzled city environment. Saints Row 2 picks up after the events of the first with your character broken and unsure of his loyalties. We recently spoke with James Tsai, Lead Designer for Saints Row 2 at Volition Studios, to get the scoop on everything from returning characters, new mission types and the development team's confidence in going up against the monster known as GTA IV.







IGN: Explain to us exactly what has transpired from Saints Row 1 to Saints Row 2. What has happened to the main character and how has his outlook changed?



James Tsai: Saints Row 2 takes place a few years after the original. With the Vice Kings, Rollerz, and Los Carnales out of the picture, several new upstart gangs have been able to sweep in and make their mark on Stilwater. At the same time, a multi-national conglomerate known as the Ultor Corporation has become a pivotal player in city politics, pumping millions of dollars into rebuilding the metropolis.



Regarding the main character, it's pretty easy to explain what's happened to him: he's slept. Comatose and disfigured after the explosion at the end of Saints Row 1, he has passed the years in the confines of a dingy prison infirmary. Much in the same way his body was rebuilt while in recovery, the city of Stilwater has changed and rebuilt itself. It's a brave new world that he can't wait to tear back down.



IGN: I understand that Julius and Troy are returning to SR2. Are they aware that the Saints stabbed our character in the back at the end of the first game? How has their role changed within the Saints from the first game to Saints 2?



Tsai: Without trying to give up too many spoilers, I can definitely say that Julius and Troy do indeed return in Saints Row 2. At the start of the game, we see how far the Saints have fallen and find the old leadership fractured and spread out. Troy has left the ranks of undercover officers to become Stilwater's Chief of Police. Johnny Gat is on death row. As for Julius, the player will find out what his old mentor had to do with the bombing that left him for dead in the first game.



IGN: Since your character undergoes plastic surgery at the beginning of the game (in order to create your custom look) do Julius, Troy and the rest of the Saints recognize you from the get-go or do you have to reveal your identity later down the line?



Tsai: The player is actually quite infamous in our game; he's the leader of the Saints, and everyone knows it this time around. We do crack a few jokes in the storyline referring to the fact that the player might look completely different than in Saints Row 1, but the visual disparity is not a focal point of the game.



It was very important to us to continue to offer a more robust character customization system than anyone else. Playing as who you want to be is part of the core Saints Row experience. You can even select your voice this time around, since your player is no longer a mute who stands by and takes orders but rather an angry badass who takes charge in every situation.



GN: Has the mission structure changed at all? It seemed like repetition factored into the way the quests were laid out in the first Saints Row. Any plans on how to avoid that in SR2?



Tsai: The great thing about developing Saints Row 2 was the wealth of knowledge the team acquired while making the original. With an established game engine on the second pass, we were able to start working on missions far earlier this time around and really look at what would make them fun for the player.





There's lots of variety this time around, both in terms of gameplay mechanics and where the player goes. With so many new features and vehicles to choose from, one of our big challenges was packing everything in and not leaving cool stuff out! In one mission you could be sweeping over the city in a helicopter firing a heavy machine gun out the side door, and then in the next you're knocking off a high priced yacht and dodging the coast guard on a jet ski. And to make sure killing the leaders of enemy gangs is truly satisfying, we've added deeper boss battles to make these fights very memorable.



If players want to take a break from the story, there's even more stuff to do in the city. We offer several new activities, plus all the favorites from the original Saints Row. Our new diversions system lets players earn respect or cash just for experimenting in the city, whether it be performing stunts in vehicles or picking on hapless pedestrians. And taking out an enemy gang's stronghold or repelling a tough pushback on your turf is another way players get plenty of variety.



IGN: I seem to remember hearing about the Ultor Corporation in Saints Row 1 but don't recall them playing a pivotal role. How has it changed in Saints Row 2 and what kind of a roll does the corporation play?



Tsai: Ultor is an ever-present force in Saints Row 2; with so much financial and political clout, the company has woven itself directly into the everyday fabric of Stilwater. They deploy their own private elite security forces rather than rely on local police, they have stakes in every sector and industry working in the city, and they are largely responsible for the economic resurgence of the whole region. Needless to say, they have a lot of pull in what goes on in Saints Row 2.



From a game design standpoint, Ultor gave us a persistent nemesis to build our game around. In the original Saints Row, we worked with three unique storylines each revolving around a gang but not having a lot to do with one another, which could sometimes feel disjointed. In Saints Row 2 each gang continues to have its own storyline that can be approached as the player sees fit, but those storylines now integrate more closely with the broader design of the game and with each other. Ultor, with its promise of a "Brighter Future, a Better Life," is always there, breathing down the player's neck and bashing heads with the Saints again and again.



IGN: Who is Dane and what are his motives for the Stilwater Urban Renewal Plan?



Tsai: Dane Vogel is the public face of Ultor; he's the stereotypical corporate sleazeball that sings the praises of the company to the public while spinning away all the nasty, exploitative stuff that it does. The Stilwater Urban Renewal plan, as it's sold to shareholders and analysts, is a massive revitalization project where Ultor invests millions of dollars into beat-up neighborhoods and improves their schools, businesses, roads, and whatever else needs fixing. In truth, it's a way for Ultor to build their real estate portfolio by first encouraging gang wars to drive property values down, and then pull off a low-priced land grab. It's one of the many underhanded things they'll do in the name of social reform and charity.



IGN: So the Ultor Corporation, and more specifically Dane, seem to be the main bad guys in SR 2. How do the rival gangs play an adversarial role in this game along with Ultor? It seems like the rival gangs would be working alongside the main character to bring down the evil Ultor.



Tsai: The rival gangs and the Saints will still go after each other with all the venom and hatred you'd expect. Their common enmity for Ultor doesn't do a whole lot to quell the violence between them in their struggle for power; two small dogs getting chewed up by the big one can still fight when left to their own devices.



Over the course of the story, the player will see how dirty Ultor really gets. They thrust their greedy hands into everything, manipulating the gangs' affairs to suit their own purposes and often exacerbating the conflict between them. They'd stab their own mothers in the back if it meant coming out a few points ahead on their investment.



IGN: Will the Ultor Corporation factor into multiplayer at all?



Tsai: We're not releasing much information on our multiplayer plans right now. There will definitely be single player elements incorporated into the adversarial side of the game, but we're keeping the specifics under wraps for the time being.



IGN: Gameplay wise, what does this game do differently than the first?



Tsai: There are a lot of new features in Saints Row 2 that we think players are going to love. Full cooperative play with a friend through the entire single-player campaign means the level of chaos gamers can wreak on an open world environment doubles. New vehicle types abound as well, including several different airplanes, helicopters, boats, jet skis, and motorcycles as well as monster trucks and APCs. Our combat system has new elements, including fine aiming, grabbing people and using them as human shields, and being able to grab props like chairs, bottles, sign posts, and other debris as melee bludgeons. We've made additions and improvements to all aspects of the game.



IGN: How does the size of Stilwater in Saints 2 compare to the size of the city in the first game?



Tsai: In terms of sheer playable area, the city is one and a half times as large as the Stilwater from the original game. Saying that really doesn't give the player a true sense of how different an experience Saints Row 2 will be though – we've gone through every district and changed it around, evolving and devolving the city's neighborhoods to reflect the years that have passed and the effect Ultor has had.



Some areas have prospered and replaced their shuttered storefronts with newly opened coffee shops and internet cafes. Saints Row itself, the Saints' old stomping grounds, is no longer a dilapidated district with street hookers and pushers but instead a gleaming paragon of vibrant commercialism and industry, with skyscrapers and overpriced condos packed into the newly valuable real estate. Other areas have seen the cruel march of time take an even harder toll on their already downtrodden fortunes. The old piers and docks, for instance, have crumbled into the ocean, leaving jagged spikes of concrete and exposed steel as a testament to the failed shipping companies that couldn't survive with the times.



These changes nicely complement the brand new areas in the city like Stilwater University, the nuclear power plant, the prison, a new boardwalk, and many more. Couple all of that with well over a hundred interiors to fight in, shop in, or explore, plus expansive underground areas and the ability to venture out onto building rooftops with the new flying vehicles, and the player gets a Stilwater that's really grown up, out, down, and around.



IGN: Finally, the question that everyone wants to know the answer to, why are people going to play Saints Row 2 over GTA IV?



Tsai: Really? That's the first time I've heard anyone ask that question. Seriously though, I see no reason why gamers can't enjoy both games. Saints Row 2 is all about giving the player an over-the-top gameplay experience. Like everyone else, I haven't played GTA IV yet but from what we've seen here on IGN they appear to be going in more of a serious, ultra-realistic direction. In Saints Row 2, we offer players a compelling story and let them set the tone of the game with their character – if you want to create a hardcore gang-banger with matching bra and panties, you can do it in our game. If you want to taunt your opponent by giving him a good old fashioned tea-bagging or ass-slap, we won't stop you. Everything we do in Saints Row 2, from our combat, to our deep customization, to our co-op support, is about giving players total freedom to do what they want without worrying about the boundaries of realism.</div>

<div class="bbcode_quote">
<div class="bbcode_quote_head">Quote:</div>
<div class="bbcode_quote_body">April 3, 2008 - When we were first greeted with Saints Row's three-dimensional open world where we could live the lives our evil halves salivated over, it was clear that the only aspect still missing, the one thing that could sweeten the deal that much more, was cooperative play. We all know how difficult it is to drive and shoot out the passenger's side window at the same time, and that's exactly what friends are for in Saints Row 2.



That, and so much more.





Saints Row 2 isn't built around its co-op mechanic in the way that Gears of War was, but luckily its free-roaming nature makes structuring your play around the actions of you and a friend extremely easy. You won't find multiple corridors that feel artificially crafted to simplify gameplay. Instead it's up to you to find ways to exploit the advantages of playing with another gangsta. Sometimes it's as easy as entering into a room full of enemies and laying the smack down with twice the number of guns, while occasionally having to plan a more strategic route with timed explosives and multiple points of attack (like having your buddy setup with a sniper rifle at a safe distance and pick people off from afar).



The level that we got to try out was the same that we saw during our first demo with Saints Row 2, only this time we got to lay waste to the drug labs ourselves. Just as before we were tasked with wandering around a trailer park -- of course it was filled with the type of degenerates you'd expect to find at a trailer park -- and destroying five drug labs being used by the Sons of Samedi. The developers, in anticipation of us journalists sucking at the game, equipped us with infinite ammunition and all weapons unlocked. That meant that the wonderful world of exploding satchel charges was instantly available which made it easy to attach five of these sticky bombs to the respective buildings and blow them up in order.



It was then time to try out one of the new activities in the game dubbed "Heli for Hire." The first level of the activity charged us with tracking a friendly car and providing them with cover from the enemy trucks and cars trying to take it out. Since we were in co-op mode one player was the pilot while the other operated the machine gun and the missile launcher. This obviously isn't the case in single-player when one player commands both, but with two players in one bird split responsibilities make sense.



The pre-alpha version carries the same draw-in issues from the original Saints Row.Our missile shots had no affect on the innocent traffic as they faded into view; only those cars with red markers over their hands were damaged by our stray missiles.



That withstanding, the overall detail in the visuals has been stepped up a bit since the original Saints. Subtleties on the cars shine through a bit more and explosions feature nicer looking flames and less of a cartoon flair than they did previously. Everything in the environment still needed a healthy dose of anti-aliasing to smooth things out a bit, but there's plenty of time to add that in as development continues.



After our regular duties had been completed successfully it was time to venture out into the world of Stilwater and wreak some havoc. Apparently the final version of the game will feature plenty of friendly fire options so you and a friend can either render yourselves impervious to your buddy's shots or you can have them take off a smaller percentage of life or you can toggle an all-out deathmatch. While it was fun to demolish whatever form of transportation our cohort chose, the fact that it didn't do any damage in the Gamers' Day build was less than rewarding.





Instead I thought it best to turn our attention to the innocent pedestrians of Stilwater. My violent little friend and I hopped in a car that resembled the one seen in Dukes of Hazzard (called Hammer in Saints 2). I was behind the wheel and my buddy leaned out the window and fired off rocket launcher shots into the sea of oncoming traffic. Our alert level was limited to three stars and we had no trouble at all filling it up to the max, thus bringing the requisite onslaught of cops and SWAT team roadblocks.



One of my favorite moments from the co-op came as we were fleeing from a few trailing police cruisers. I whipped out my satchel charges and starting flinging them into the path of oncoming traffic. While the arc on the charges is a bit tough to deal with, when I was able to stick a charge to the front bumper of an oncoming sedan it was great fun to wait a second and a half and then detonate it into the police cars trailing behind me. The game dropped a few frames here and there when several explosions detonated at once, but it was likely more due to the early code than anything else.



After our evil little killing spree came to a vicious end with my character getting busted by a portly police officer it was time to test out a couple of the new vehicles in Saints Row 2. We had obviously been in the cockpit of a helicopter before in our co-op activity, but our demo afforded us one free copter ride as well, something that was accessible by activating an objective marker on our HUD (heads up display). The controls for the copter were easy enough with pitch and yaw being controlled by the left analog stick and rotation being governed by the shoulder buttons. Ascending and descending were mapped to the facebuttons. Thankfully the chopper wasn't as difficult to control as expected. Sure there were times when I literally found myself careening towards the ground while upside down, but for the most part it was easy to stay aloft.



The next new mode of transport is the motorcycle and was available to us through yet another objective marker. The bike handled just as it has in past open world games which is to say that it is very fragile. Going about 15 miles per hour and running into a parked car sends your character flying off of it. While it is realistic, it was still a little frustrating. There were also a few collision detection issues that needed to be ironed out before release. Occasionally riding three feet away from a light pole still launched you off of your ride. Again, this is something that should be cleaned up before launch.



Saints Row 2 is making steady progress towards delivering a memorable experience that expands on the previous game. It should be interesting to see what surprises THQ has in store for those hoping for a release that can take down the likes of GTA IV, and the developers at Volition certainly have enough time – with an August 26 release date – to throw every last thing (kitchen sink and all) into Saints Row 2. Judging from what we've seen from the competition, they had better. We'll have more news and impressions of Saints Row 2 in the coming months leading up to release.</div>

<div class="bbcode_quote_body">With the impending release of GTA 4 around the corner much is being kept very quiet about the sequel to possibly the best street gang themed game. Saints row 1 was the first crime sandbox genre game ushered into next gen exclusively on the XBOX 360. While the moronic many proclaimed it a clone or a ripoff the secure few played and enjoyed the hell out of it. Its campy storyline and its chaotic gameplay elements provided hours of enjoyment for those willing to try it. But it was not only labeled a clone or ripoff by kids who have no understanding of genres or gaming history, but also by "supposedly" pro gaming journalist and T.V personality's. Saints row 1 wasn't really given a fair shake by these "supposedly" pro gaming journalist. In fact many of them found it hard to review the game on its own merits w/o bringing up GTA. Which only tells me that apparently the stupid kids who don't understand genre's or gaming history are now stupid adults who still haven't learned.



The sad part about all this is that the bigger gaming news companies are the guilty of this the most. Nate Ahearn of IGN said this in his preview for Saints row 2,

"Its not easy for a company to make an open-world game that stands totally separate from the titan that is grand theft auto. THQ went the opposite direction of other companies and decided to make their first entry into the free-roaming gangster genre what was essentially reskinned GTA"



He acknowledges the free roaming gangster genre as such, but continues to contradict his intelligence. I guess its good many of these journalist were just a glimmer in their dads eye when gaming first started getting some attention. Its not about saints row being a flop it isn't, in fact according to VG Chartz it has sold over 1.7million copies, its not about Saints row 2 being a flop, chances are it will not. Its about these so called journalist dealing with the game on its own merits, and getting their heads out of their ass. You really have to wonder if any of these people have a clear cut understanding to what exactly a genre is and how it is built. Although Saints row 2 is sounding very promising the stupidity parade that is "pro" gaming news is already marching to the same ignorant beat they marched to before the release of the first Saints row.</div>

Sorry, I don't know if you stubbled upon his blog or know him personally, but this guy is an idiot.



Skimming thru his blog, I didn't see anything that wasn't retarted.



Anyways, on SR2.. He hasn't played it or seen it in action so why does he think he knows better than most of the gaming press that have seen it and said it dissapoints.



I understand, that a hardcore SR fan could get offended by someone calling SR a GTA reskin, but that is what it is.



Whatever, well see in the coming months how it does. I have a little interest, but I could really care less about it with GTA's release so soon.

<div class="bbcode_quote">
<div class="bbcode_quote_head">Quote:</div>
<div class="bbcode_quote_body">Before we get to the big one (that's GTA IV) it's worth reminding ourselves of its main competition: namely Saints Row 2. It would be fair to say that for most people, Saints Row was a thoroughly enjoyable if limited take on the GTA template. It would also be fair to assume that while expectations for Saints Row 2 are high, nobody outside of THQ would ever think that Saints Row 2 is going to better GTA IV. And, you know what? Probably they'd be thinking right. But that doesn't mean that Saints Row 2 should be overlooked - far from it in fact. It's a brave company that goes toe-to-toe with the next greatest game on the Xbox 360, but Volition is still taking the fight to Rockstar. And from what we've seen, no one's going to be scoring an early knockout punch either.





Latter day saints

We can say this with some confidence, because Saints Row 2 plugs a massive gap in GTA IV's arsenal. A quick scan through the list of features actually shows a number of elements unique to the 'Row - customisable cribs, gestures and character appearances to name but three - but we care less about these elements than we do about a double-header of Antiques Roadshow and Heartbeat on a Sunday afternoon. No, it's the fully online co-op campaign that we're getting rather excited about.



Crackdown proved how good a freeroaming online campaign could be, so the fact that it's in Saints Row 2, but not GTA IV, is huge news. You and a friend can tackle the main story from beginning to end, which opens up a massive amount of freedom in terms of how you can approach each mission. It's a quest that's also going to take longer than you'd think too, because although you'll be returning to Stilwater there's much more to do. The city has changed quite a bit since we last saw it, even gaining a few new appendages such as the Alcatraz-inspired 'Prison Island' (still time to come up with a name, guys) - and getting there's a cinch thanks to the new jetskis, boats, planes and 'copters. Of course, it's the getting out part that'll be tricky.



Death Row

Thanks to your actions in the first game the Los Carnales, Westside Rollerz, and the Vice Kings have been replaced by three new gangs, and they're all overseen by the city's shadowy owners, the Ultor Corporation - a company we just know you're going to have to fight in the end. One look at the very oppressive reign of Ultor in Red Faction is proof enough.





The new aiming system in place should please anybody frustrated by the shooting of old. Clicking the right stick brings the camera down behind the shoulder of your character, allowing you pick off enemies with ease. It also helps when using the new satchel charge. Simply hurl one onto enemies' vehicles, or even your own if you're feeling cocky (remember to hop out though), and watch the Havok physics go berserk and everything explodes.



And while everybody's busy saying how Saints Row is 'just a GTA clone', it's worth mentioning three things that the first game introduced: the phone, the mission instant restarts and the online Deathmatch (because Liberty City Stories' WiFi mode isn't really comparable) - three features that Rockstar has since used to great effect in GTA IV. Maybe, just maybe, there's something else up Volition's sleeve that'll inspire the next next GTA. We wouldn't put it past them...



It's going to be nearly impossible to market Saints Row as anything other than 'the alternative GTA IV', and if that turns out to be the case Volition will not have been given the credit it deserves. A hugely ambitious title that you should still be very excited about.</div>

<div class="bbcode_quote_body">In the real world the suit makes the man. Well, in the world of Saints Row 2 things just aren't that easy. No, on the streets of Stilwater it takes a bit more to ensure you're left alone to go about your business. As with any open-world gangster game, maybe more so thanks to the over-the-top nature of SR2, weapons speak much louder than any Italian suit.



When we originally saw the game in action we were forced to sit and watch as cars and satchel charges were strapped together to form makeshift bombs. Next, we got to try it for ourselves. Now it's time to bring back the veil a bit further on the armaments of Saints Row 2 and give you a look at some never before seen death bringers. We've even pointed out a few creative uses for some of our favorites.



Annihilator

# Manually loaded projectile

# Fast reload response

# Effective and deadly at any range





What it is:

# A destructive technological marvel; courtesy of the minds of Ultor.

# A rocket propelled grenade launcher using laser guided rockets that can be targeted mid-flight.



Possible uses:

# Hold up clothing stores with style.

# Fire rocket into the air then watch as your co-op ally desperately tries to evade the incoming projectile.



AS14 Hammer

# Fully automatic shotgun with a high rate of fire.



Ideal times for use:

# Tactical room sweeps when user has no concern for civilian mortality.

# Strike negotiations with Ultor Employees.



Chainsaw

# Light-weight melee weapon

# Effective at close range



What it is:

# A diamond tipped logging saw perfect for cutting through wood or bone.

# While messy, the chainsaw is the most effective close quarters weapon in Stilwater.



How-to-use:

# Slide chainsaw through opponent at a jaunty angle.

# Ultor recommends washing clothes thoroughly after use on a living target.



Flamethrower

# Flammable liquid distribution unit

# Effective at close range



What it is:

# A lightweight incendiary device capable of igniting multiple targets at once.

# Designed for Stilwater PD, Police Chief Troy Bradshaw has since banned use of flamethrowers by his officers.



How-to-use:

# If used for lighting candles on a cake, make sure the birthday boy or girl is nowhere near the table.

# For civilian safety, please do not use on crowded sidewalks.



Minigun

# Fully automatic with high rate of fire

# Effective and deadly at any range



What it is:

# Sacrificing accuracy for sheer fire power, this portable gatling gun is the cornerstone in Ultor's urban renewal plan.



How-to-use:

# Invite 50 of your least favorite people to join you in a small room, then settle your differences.

# The mini gun is an ideal anti personnel, anti vehicle, and anti passive resistance weapon.



Satchel Charges

# Explosive sticky bomb with remote detonator.



How-to-use:

# Simply apply the adhesive charge to any man, woman, or vehicle and watch as they helplessly try to dislodge it.

# In the fight against boredom, Ultor approves the use of multiple charges to juggle bodies.



SKR-9 Threat

# Fully automatic

# High rate of fire

# Single or dual-wielded



How-to-use:

# While the SKR-9 Threat is an urban staple, holding two doubles your productivity.

# Best used in short bursts, the uzi is a drive by classic.



Stun Gun

# High-voltage, low-current electroshock weapon



How-to-use:

# When in an academic environment, non lethal countermeasures are essential to maintaining good PR.

# The stun gun is slow to fire, but watching your target writhe in pain is worth the wait.

Ok, I've kinda already said my opinions but one of the things that really bothered me was that in a recent video I saw the guy said that you still have to get the respect to do the missions.



I know that is a little thing. But I feel like you should just be able to do the story when you want and the side stuff when you want. When I went back playing it on my newer gamertag early last year, I stopped and got over it cause I just wanted to do story and I had to do the side stuff to unlock the sotry missions. Kinda lame its not optional.



Not a huge thing though.

<div class="bbcode_quote_body">SAN FRANCISCO, May 28 (Reuters) - THQ Inc (THQI.O: Quote, Profile, Research) is delaying the release of its "Saints Row 2" video game by two months due to product quality and marketing considerations, a senior executive said on Wednesday.



The delay to Oct. 14 from Aug. 26 means the game will be released in THQ's fiscal third quarter instead of the second quarter, but will not affect the company's financial outlook for its 2009 fiscal year, Bob Aniello, senior vice president of worldwide marketing, told Reuters.



"Saints Row 2", an action game featuring gangsters roaming an open world, is a key part of THQ's bid to turn around its business, hit last year by sluggish sales of other titles. (Reporting by Scott Hillis; editing by Carol Bishopric)</div>

<div class="bbcode_quote_head">Quote:</div>
<div class="bbcode_quote_body">June 4, 2008 - In Stilwater, players won't get very far if they don't command respect. Fortunately, in Saints Row 2 (SR2) there are plenty of ways for up and coming gang members to make their mark on the city. Some of these are within the bounds of the law, such as acting as a bodyguard for celebrities, while others like drug dealing are more illicit (or completely illicit, depending on how loose the player's morals are).



When players want to take a break from the story campaign, activities and diversions are available throughout the city for them to build up their respect levels. As they do so, the clout of the 3rd Street Saints increases and even more story missions become unlocked against each of the enemy gangs that have muscled in on their turf.





Activities



Activities are the fastest way for the player to earn respect in SR2. Throughout the city, several unsavory characters are looking for someone capable and tough to do their dirty work for them. The player visits these characters and agrees to perform certain tasks, which each have several levels of difficulty to provide long-term challenge over the course of the game.



SR2 features all the favorite activities from SR, plus several new activities, giving the player twice as many opportunities for over-the-top chaos. Some examples of available activities include:



# Fight Club -- Players step into the ring with hardened convicts and mixed martial artists as they slug your way to supremacy in a network of organized underground brawls. Would-be challengers can be finished off with a flourish to show that toughness doesn't require a gun, just a willingness to snap some bones.



# FUZZ -- Players are starring on a brand new TV reality show about the Stilwater PD. The cameraman is in need of exciting footage, the kind that only a gang member posing as an officer can provide. Nothing is out of bounds for the long arm of the law when the Saints get involved.



# Insurance Fraud -- The most popular activity from SR returns, once again allowing players to throw themselves in harm's way by literally playing in traffic. The new adrenaline mode allows for extra spectacular pedestrian-on-car collisions, and co-operative play allows two gang members to team up and rack up special expanded combos and extra cash.



Diversions



Aside from activities, players also earn respect through the game's new diversion system. SR2 tracks the player's actions throughout the entire game and builds up their reputation accordingly. Respect is given for exploring new areas, winning gunfights with enemy gang members, finding jumps and stunt areas in different vehicles, and many other events over the course of the story. With diversions, players are able to continuously advance the Saints' interests – even when just messing around for fun, every action in the open world sandbox is a meaningful one.



There are several categories of diversions. Here are just a few of the many things the player can do to pick up extra respect as they play the game:



# Combat Diversions -- Shooting people in the head or groin, running them down with a car, beating them senseless with mailboxes, or tossing them into moving traffic are just a few of the ways players can earn respect when fighting their enemies. No points are awarded for sensitivity.



# Stunt Diversions -- Whether it be by powersliding through corners in a sports car or barnstorming in between buildings in a plane, players earn respect when they show their prowess behind the controls of SR2's many different vehicles. Races are scattered throughout Stilwater to give the player extra opportunities to test their mettle.



# Criminal Mischief -- Not all trouble found in Stilwater involves going head-to-head with the other gangs. Players can gain respect through a number of spontaneous crimes to commit, ranging from good old fashion felonies like store holdups or hostage taking to smaller acts such as street muggings or even funny misdemeanors like streaking in the buff.</div>

They did show it off at E3. IGN, GameSpot has all done previews. All said their very impressed with the game. E3 they showed off one of the new actives and the first level of the game with Co-Op.



All the trailers have been gameplay they just remove the Hud. Trailers fit with the type of game it is.

<div class="bbcode_quote_head">Quote:</div>
<div class="bbcode_quote_body">THQ Australia told us today that Saint's Row 2 has come through the OFLC's classification process with an MA15+ rating, and that no changes were made to the game to attain that rating. That's good news for fans of insane mayhem, and to celebrate, we asked our local THQ rep to give us the low-down on some of the craziest stuff you can do in the game. Here are five of his responses.



* Over the top activities: "Some of the new activities include the Septic Avenger (where you are asked to spray sewage on to buildings and people), Crowd Control (where you must protect a celebrity from deranged and violent fans) and Fight Club (taking part in illegal underground fist fights)."



* Committing Insurance Fraud: "Insurance Fraud sees the player faking accidents by throwing themselves in front of vehicles, off buildings etc. The player can enter a rag doll mode moments before the impact to avoid any actual damage. The great thing about Insurance Fraud in Saints Row 2 is that, now you can play the whole game in co-op, new opportunities open up. So for example, you can throw your buddy into an oncoming train."





* Insane diversions: "These are mini-activities you can participate in almost anywhere. These include streaking, car surfing, tagging, base jumping, stunt jumps and loads more."





* Escort Missions: "The Escort missions in Saints Row 2 are very similar to those in the original Saints Row. As previously, the player drives around an escort and their client, avoiding the paparazzi, TV crews, private detectives and jealous husbands or wives. Meanwhile the conversation between the escort and client implies all kind of things are going on in the back seat."



Violence and Weapons: "The violence in Saints Row 2 is very much an over the top affair. Everything is exaggerated but it's not about splashing the screen with blood or gore. The choice of weapons in Saints Row 2 is much bigger and alongside your traditional pistols, shotguns etc., you've got all sorts of weapons such as samurai swords, fire extinguishers, flash grenades, stun guns, sledgehammers, assault rifles with underslung grenade launchers, the list goes on. There are some great new weapons too, including shock paddles, pepper spray, flamethrowers and, of course, satchel charges."</div>

<div class="bbcode_quote">
<div class="bbcode_quote_head">Quote:</div>
<div class="bbcode_quote_body">1. In one of the trailers it looked like a person doing a chokeslam, does this mean we can do grappling moves?



There are all kinds of melee moves available to the player with our upgraded melee combat system in Saints Row 2. In the basic brawler melee combat style the player has four different 'finisher' moves. These are more elaborate/damaging attacks that the player can only pull off by completing a combo of other attacks.



In addition to the basic brawler melee style the player will unlock three other melee styles over the course of the game. These range from a hardcore karate/kung fu style martial art style, to a bigger/tougher/more damaging wrestling style, to a flowing and deadly style similar to Brazilian Capoeira.







2. How many people can we play online this time around?



We should be releasing this information soon.





3. What leaderboards are there going to be this time around for Xbox Live?



In addition to Multiplayer leaderboads we also track certain statistics that are available in Co-op and Single Player. So no matter what type of game you're playing in Saints Row 2 we'll be tracking your stats and comparing them to all other players on the leaderboards.





4. Will your homies be able to drive the car that you're in and do better with it than in Saint's Row 1?





During certain missions followers and homies will be driving the player around the city of Stilwater. Their AI for driving has been improved across the board so all driving should be noticeably better in Saints Row 2.





5. What's it like working with Gary Busey?



The development team at Volition didn't get to interact with Gary directly, but from what I've heard about the shoot with him it sounded like it played out exactly how you would expect it to have, pretty crazily.





6. In a preview, it was mentioned that your Strength and Stamina skills can be improved after time is this true?



By completing various levels of activities the player will unlock rewards. There are dozens upon dozens of rewards available, all of which are useful and extremely beneficial to the player to different degrees. Among those rewards are indeed increases to player strength and stamina. With strength we increase the damage the player deals in melee damage. For stamina we improve the amount of sprinting the player can do, leading up to an ultimate unlimited sprint reward.



Various other rewards are things like increased gunfire accuracy, various super powered weapons with special abilities, and even an unlockable that allows the player to use their cell phone to have any vehicle they've stored in a garage delivered to them no matter where they are.





7. Any date for a demo right now or is it to early?



Sorry we can't talk about that yet J





8. Can we throw people online like in the trailers?



Absolutely. I have to tell you that this is by far my favorite addition we've made to Saints Row 2. The ability to grab anyone and then either run them around as a Human Shield or toss them into/onto/on top of things all over the world gives an amazing sense of interaction and freedom to the player.



I can't wait for players to get their hands on this feature and figure out how to do funny and awesome things then post them on the internet for everyone to see.





9. Has the targeting system and the cover system been improved?



Combat has been a major focus of our improvements on Saints Row 2. As I'm sure you've read or heard about elsewhere we've added an over the shoulder camera feature called Fine Aim. With this feature the player will both be able to kill enemies from a further distance as well as target enemy body parts more effectively up close.



At the beginning of Saints Row 2 we looked into a cover system for the player. We prototyped it and played with it but felt that it didn't fit our desired gameplay ****nor the combat ****that people enjoyed in the original Saints Row. In prototyping at that same time we had Human Shields. This feature turned out to be much more in line with our desired combat ****and speed for Saints Row 2. Players were not locked down to a location, they were mobile all the time, and able to use their enemies as a form of mobile cover that was both incredibly enjoyable and extremely satisfying.



As players will start to see once they play with Saints Row 2's combat we made the right choice. Players will really love Human Shields and how they improve and evolve Saints Row 2's gun combat.





10. What's in the Collectors Edition for the fans?



I don't believe this has been finalized. I can tell you that this is the version I want.





11. What kind of two player modes are going to be in SR 2?



In addition to all core gameplay, story, and campaign mode being available for both players in Co-op, we've added some hidden gameplay that is specific to co-op. You'll have to wait a bit longer until we release the details, though.





12. Is the PIMP cane going to be making its return again?



We definitely listened to all of the positive fan feedback about the Pimp Cane, and so yes, I can confirm that the Pimp Cane is making a comeback in Saints Row 2. We've also added about half a dozen other unlockable weapons that will give the Pimp Cane a run for it's money in terms of popularity and sheer destruction, so look out for those.





13. Well there be any reward for getting the 100% Completion or to early?



Sorry, can't talk about that J



14. In SR 2 one of the activities is called "FUZZ" is this true? If so can you tell us what you do in this mode?



Yes, FUZZ is a brand new activity in Saints Row 2 that has the player playing the role of a Stilwater police officer attempting to provide a police tv show with the most exciting and controversial footage possible. Getting footage involves cracking down on all of the various crimes going on in Stilwater including, littering, streaking, old ladies driving slow, and of course Ho revolts. Throughout the six levels of the activity the player will encounter various criminals and be faced with the choice of how to bring them to justice: drive by gunfire, running them over with the police cruiser, beating them down with the nightstick, or lighting them on fire with the flamethrower. The life of a cop in Stilwater is tough.





15. Are there anymore References? (such as "Ultor" from Red Faction)



You'll have to wait for the game to find out J</div>

Re: Official Saints Row/ Saints Row 2 Discussion


<div class="bbcode_quote">
<div class="bbcode_quote_head">Quote:</div>
<div class="bbcode_quote_body">The original Saints Row certainly didn't revolutionize the sandbox action genre, but in playing it safe, the game pulled off a successful imitation of the Grand Theft Auto formula while still managing to introduce a handful of novel features. Right from the get-go, players were introduced to an impressive and seemingly limitless palette of character customization options. It probably goes without saying that Volition will take that ability to obsessively mold your protagonist and carry it over to Saints Row 2, but now they've expanded the customization options to your entire gang. In addition to a few side missions, we recently took a glimpse at some of the ways you'll be able to design your ideal fraternity of criminals in Saints Row 2.



Once you've escaped from prison and recruited a few followers, you'll be given the option to tinker with your gang's overall appearance. The most noticeable change is in the gang's style. With this option, you can choose a visual theme for the followers you see roaming the streets--both lieutenants and thugs--from a pretty hefty list. Among the wardrobes we saw were those listed as '80s, Body Guards, Pimps n' Hos, and last but certainly not least, Ninjas. If you want your gang to look stern but classy, Body Guards might be the look for you. If you want an army of underdressed ladies hanging in your crib, Pimps n' Hos would be a safe bet. But if you're anything like us, you'll immediately choose the Ninja style and never look back.



With this option selected, all the thugs that belong to your gang will resemble stealth assassins of the night. So as not to stand out from your cronies, you can go into your own wardrobe and select your own ninja garb. If you really want to get into the spirit of things, you can also change your fighting style to the Ronin technique. This will change the look of your attacks to more of a nimble martial arts technique--as opposed to the street-tough look of your default character's punches. Thus, with our ninja cycle complete, we could move onto the other gang options.



These additional options include choosing an official gang taunt, graffiti tags, and the types of vehicles you're buddies will be driving. Gang taunts range from vulgar gestures (think everyone's favorite amateurish first-person shooter celebration) to comical Irish jigs. The graffiti tags are all authentic-looking designs, courtesy of one of Volition's concept artists, who we're told has a background in the tagging arts. And finally, the vehicle options let you choose the models, designs, and features of the cars you'll undoubtedly be stealing from your own comrades whenever you need a quick lift.



Once we had our gang done up to suitably absurd levels, it was time to test out a few of the game's side missions--or activities. We went with a pair of stronghold missions: goals where you need to find a rival gang's base and cause a huge ruckus. The first mission had us taking to the air in an attempt to destroy a rival gang's drug farm. Your character sits in a helicopter with an assault rifle in hand, and your goal is to blow up every last structure in the complex from on high. Once you get that done, it ends with you running down fleeing Cadillacs filled with armed thugs doing their best to make a successful escape from your rampaging ways. When successful, you're shown a newspaper clipping (Headline: "Hippies Mourn Loss of Drug Farm") that will adorn the walls of your crib. It's a wistful token of nostalgia, as well as a functional teleport, that gives you the ability to go back and replay that mission whenever you like.



The other stronghold mission we tried involved taking on a gang of a slightly higher stature. Rather than busting up a field of hallucinogenics, this one required plowing through a warehouse, stealing a large sum of money, as well as blowing up all their trucks and airplanes. The action itself feels similar to most third-person shooters, but a variety of guns and death animations help make things interesting. Most strategy requires knowing which weapon to use and when to crouch behind cover to let your health regenerate. The tricky part was the second stage of the mission, where you exit the warehouse and find yourself on an airport tarmac. Thugs are shooting at you from all over, but with the handy aid of a satchel charge and rocket launcher, you can take them and their vehicles out with enough effort.



The demo we played was on the PlayStation 3, which gave us our first opportunity to see how the Sixaxis controls work. We tested this functionality on a racing activity, which was a time trial where you need to race through the sewers on a jet ski. The motion controls were a bit more fidgety than we would have liked, but they became easier to deal with as we progressed from the confines of the sewer to the wide-open ocean. At the very least, the Sixaxis controls are purely optional because you can turn them off whenever you like.



Minor control issues aside, Saints Row 2 is looking like a worthy follow-up to its well-received predecessor. It may not be the towering artistic achievement that Grand Theft Auto IV turned out to be, but with even more features added to a game that already boasted lots of hidden surprises, the city of Stilwater should offer plenty to see. You can expect to see the game released on October 14.

Mods, and Staff on SR2 boards said their is sexual and suggestive themes. Theirs escort missions still and that has plenty of suggestive themes.



ESRB doesn't even have a rating for the game yet on their site yet.

<div class="bbcode_quote_body">Dan Sutton, Associate Producer on Volition’s upcoming Saints Row 2, has said that Sony is pushing developers to include unique PlayStation 3 trophies in games that aren’t simply carbon copies of the Xbox 360’s achievements system.



"I think Sony is trying to push for unique," said Sutton, during an interview with Videogamer.com. "They don't want them to be mimicked, they want to have special achievements in their version. So that's one thing they're pushing on that, and they're saying that if you're developing something on PS3 we want you to have exclusives for us."



Sutton also confirmed that Volition’s forthcoming Saints Row 2 would feature unique Trophies and Achievements for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game, respectively.



"I'm sure there will probably be some that overlap, just because there are some fun achievements that you want to do on both, but yeah. It's a different system too. There's like gold, silver, platinum type trophies too, so there's going to be top level achievements. I guess you have that on Xbox too, with 60 point ones as opposed to 20 point ones. Yeah, there'll definitely be different achievements for both,” he added.



Saints Row 2 is due out later this year.</div>

Re: Official Saints Row/ Saints Row 2 Discussion



Fake Businesses



Stores were a big part of the first Saints Row. Since we had placed a lot of emphasis on player customization we needed places for the player to go to allow him to customize his character and vehicles. For SR2, we’ve only increased the customization options available to the player and as such we’ve increased the number of stores that the player can visit to match all the new options.



Clothing



In SR2 we have kept the four original clothing store chains that we had in SR1: Sloppy Seconds, On the Rag, Branded, and Impressions. For SR2 we’ve added 3 new stores to take advantage of new customization features.



http://community.saintsrow.com/blogs/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/nobody_loves_me-copy.thumbnail.jpg



Nobody Loves Me



This is a store for people who love piercings. We have new piercing options in SR2 so that the player can have nose, mouth, and eyebrow piercings along with earrings. Nobody Loves Me is also where many of Stilwater’s bikers can find the clothes that they love.



http://community.saintsrow.com/blogs/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/leatherlacead.thumbnail.jpg



Leather and Lace



Now that the player has the option to play as a woman we needed to make sure there were clothing items that made the player actually feel like a woman. Leather and Lace is the place to go to make your character feel like that special someone. Here you can find everything from lacey underwear to bondage gear to get anyone excited.



http://community.saintsrow.com/blogs/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/letspretendad.thumbnail.jpg



Let’s Pretend



Outfits are a new feature in SR2 and they allow the player to wear a group of items with one push of a button. At Let’s Pretend, Stilwater’s premiere costume store, you can find outfits to make your character look like a clown, hippie, pirate and more! Don’t like the choices at the store? Once you’ve created a look that you like you can also create your own outfits at your crib wardrobe.



Jewelry



Along with the returning On Thin Ice we’ve added one new jewelry store.



http://community.saintsrow.com/blogs/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/blingblingad.thumbnail.jpg



Bling Bling



We realize, especially at the beginning of the game, the player wants to be able to shine, but he may not have the cash to purchase the rocks and gold to make himself stand out. Bling Bling is the place to go until then; nice looking bling without the cost. Just don’t ask them where they got their stuff…



http://community.saintsrow.com/blogs/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/skeeterad.thumbnail.jpg



Gift Shops



Stilwater has several new districts, and many of them are tourist friendly! Look for special gift shops in the museum district, underground caverns and Stilwater University.



Branding



In SR1 we had several clothing brands that the player could choose from. However, each article of clothing was predefined with the company and logo. So if you wanted your Stalker cap to be an Ultor cap you were out of luck. For SR2 we’re allowing the player to put any logo on any piece of clothing that can have one. We’ve also created new logos and companies for the player to choose from. The logos can even be colored separately.



Food



In addition to Freckle Bitch’s we have several new stores where you can buy food now.



http://community.saintsrow.com/blogs/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/apollos_donuts_finala.thumbnail.jpg



Apollo’s



Stilwater has a ton of cops and they all need a place to eat. At Apollo’s you can find donuts and coffee, which are essential items for those who fight (or perpetrate) crime.



http://community.saintsrow.com/blogs/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/phucit_bboard_02.thumbnail.jpg



Phuc Mi Phuc Yue



The number of Asian immigrants in Stilwater has risen over the years. The Ronin are a result of that growth. Phuc Mi Phuc Yue is too. Run by mostly Chinese, they feature great takeout, as well as family-friendly restaurants.



http://community.saintsrow.com/blogs/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/companyofgyrosbillboardc.thumbnail.jpg



Company of Gyros



At Company of Gyros, expect the staff to run their operation like a well oiled machine. They always have enough resources and manpower to make sure the competition is outmatched. Nothing says taste like spiced lamb, World War II style!



The Ultor Mall



http://community.saintsrow.com/blogs/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/mall_billboard_0001.thumbnail.jpg



Rounds Square



Ultor has spent a lot of money to improve Stilwater. One of their biggest projects is the Rounds Square Mall located under the retail district on the north island. A massive consumer mecca, Ultor has spared no expense for the comfort of its patrons. Within the mall you can find several new store types, a two level food court and a conference center.

I'm pretty sure it will if it is coming down to the fun factor, but I heard many things like the story and VO is not as good as the 1st one, the gameplay is pretty much the same, and the framerate drops if you decide to play with VSync on.

You heard wrong than. Because same voice actors are returning. Plus they got allot of know celebrities. Take a look at the talent trailer I posted.



Gameplay was been fixed and tweaked. Shooting aspect was the best, miles ahead of GTA. Why I wished GTA would have removed lockon all together. Framerate is good. Patch fixed the framerate drop when using V-Sync in SR 1.

<div class="bbcode_quote_body">Saints Row 2 isn't a GTA killer, but instead it's a GTA alternative. Players who enjoyed the action-packed moments of GTA will have an absolute blast with Saints Row 2. It's tough not to hate on the slightly lacking production values, but when you see the rest of the game it actually makes a bit more sense. The technical shortcomings are the only truly bad part of Saints Row 2, but the core gameplay experience is extremely enjoyable. Do yourself a favor and -- if you're a fan of open world games -- go out and pick up a copy of Saints Row 2.

IGN Review: 8.2



Presentation - 8.0

Everything feels as gangster as it should. The world is easy to navigate, though the GPS can be a bit wonky. Production values aren’t quite what they could be.



Graphics - 7.0

A myriad of technical flaws mar an otherwise good looking game.



Sound - 8.5

Songs play a bit too often on the radio but there’s a good selection of stations to pick from. Voice acting is very good and effectively pushes the plot.



Gameplay - 8.5

Varied missions, insane activities and fun diversions make for a very fun experience.



Lasting Appeal - 8.5

Having the entire campaign available for two people to play is great. Missions get slightly monotonous at times but there’s always multiplayer for a quick reprieve.



awful review by IGN.

Re: Official Saints Row/ Saints Row 2 Discussion



In the early days of the Xbox 360, gamers cried out for a full-fledged Grand Theft Auto-style project. They wanted a game that thrust them into an open-ended city and let them commit whatever sort of atrocities their twisted hearts desired. Saints Row was among the first to answer that call, and it enjoyed a huge amount of success because of it.



Even though GTA IV has come and gone, gamers still hunger fore more games of its type. Once again, the Saints Row franchise is speeding to the rescue and gunning down the competition in the process. Saints Row 2 is due out next week for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. In honor of this release, we've assembled a Cast of Characters feature. Part of the appeal of Saints Row is the numerous celebrity guest voices, so we're breaking down each character and showing you the famous Hollywood face behind all those polygons.



Whether you're looking forward to controlling the Boss once again, or you're just hoping to be able to shoot Doogie Howser in the face, head over to the comments section and let us know your thoughts on Saints Row 2 when you're done here!


<hr class="bbcode_rule" />


The Story So Far



The original Saints Row was one of the earliest attempts to replicate the popular GTA formula for next-gen consoles. Like the GTA games, Saints Row put the player in the shoes of a lowly criminal in a vast, open-ended city. This customizable character, known only as Boss, completed various missions for rival gangs and slowly earned the respect of the various residents of Stilwater. The game was particularly notable for its heavy use of celebrity voices for various characters.



Saints Row proved popular enough that it has inspired a sequel just over two years later. Saints Row 2 will follow closely in the footsteps of its predecessor. Once again, players take control of Boss, outfit him as they see fit, and work to regain control of the Third Street Saints. Once again, a variety of celebrities provide the voices for the game's characters, including many returning favorites and a few new faces.

Played By: Michael Rappaport



The police chief of Stilwater, Troy finds himself in the unenviable position of having to stop the people that he once counted amongst his friends. Conflicted between duty and friendship, Troy walks a thin line between stopping and helping the Saints.

Played By: Neil Patrick Harris



DJ Veteran Child is an absentminded lieutenant working for the Sons of Samedi. A DJ for one of Stilwater's radio stations, VC got involved with the SoS mostly because of the free drugs. However, the closer he gets to the gang's leadership the more he realizes that he has gotten in way over his head. A former boyfriend of Shaundi's, Veteran Child has the same stoner and laissez-fare attitude that she has.

Played By: Michael Dorn



A giant of a man, Maero embodies the spirit of The Brotherhood. He is aggressive, blunt, impressive to behold, and ultimately loyal to his makeshift family. While his temper often gets the better of him, his girlfriend Jessica always seems able to calm him down.

Played By: Eliza Dushku



An id gone rampant, Shaundi is always on the prowl for the next good time. Laid back and fun-loving, Shaundi takes every problem thrown at her in stride (and often with a blunt in her hand). Her unflappable calm and easygoing nature often puts her at odds with the highly stressed Pierce.

Played By: Jamie Pressly



Jessica is the loving and vicious girlfriend of Maero. A rich girl who ran off with her "lower class" boyfriend, Jessica gave up a life of comfort to be with her man. While not the power behind the throne, Jessica definitely has a strong say in the goings on of The Brotherhood. She is smart, bitchy, and wicked.

Played By: Daniel Dae Kim



Charismatic and crazy, Johnny Gat is The Player's second in command. Having just broken out of death row, Gat is eager to go out and stretch his legs in the most violent way possible. Currently dating Aisha (a rap singer who faked her death in SR1), Gat has started to mellow out ever so slightly and is beginning to become more domestic.

Dane Vogel



Played By: Jay Mohr



A slick PR man, Dane Vogel lives for wheeling and dealing. He's a shrewd and sly businessman who oozes with natural charm and charisma. The public face of the multi-million dollar Ultor Corporation (as well as associate director of special projects), Dane is a spin doctor of the highest order... he doesn't think he's smarter than everyone -- he knows he is.

The one time leader of the Third Street Saints, Julius has not been seen since the assassination of Alderman Hughes. However, his presence in the city is felt every time sometime visits the Stilwater Memorial Church.

<div class="bbcode_quote_body">Saints Row 2 sticks two very long pointed fingers up at the pomposity that is GTA IV (there I said it) by offering something it can call its own. Whilst Rockstar moved their series into a more story driven realistic affair, Volition have stuck to what made the original Saints Row a success and built upon it. That’s not to take too much away from the greatness that is GTA IV, but more the two games offer very different playing experiences in similar spaces.



Saints Row 2 offers a grand playing experience that is smeared in delectable moments of sheer brilliance. The familiarity might slap you at first, but once you’ve delved deeper into the heart of the game, you’ll find that the neat quirks and variations will have you laughing out loud, and quite frankly entertained fully. Gaming is about entertainment, and I think the guys at Volition have taken on board the complaints we all had, and provided a playing space that not only you can place your own personal stamp on, but can live in for hours on end and simply not get bored, frustrated or lost. That’s some really great game design, and one that should, and will be appreciated by the masses. I’m really enjoying the game still and feel compelled to keep on playing as long as my eyes can stay open.



There are lots of games out this holiday season, and Saints Row 2 should be one of the games that you play, as there’s nothing at present that can rival its madcap adrenaline fueled flamboyance. It looks like the Saints have made a distinctive return to gaming by placing the enjoyment back where it belongs. The fun factor oozing from every street corner can most definitely be regarded as the game’s true and most cherished prot

PGNX - 9.6/10



“In terms of pure, unadulterated fun, Saints Row 2 is in a league of its own.”



Gaming Trend - 9.2/10



“As I’ve said, this game took me over 18 hours to complete. That said, there is easily double or triple that amount doing the distraction missions. Even if open world games aren’t your thing, there is something else to love here – online co-op play. The entire game can be played from beginning to end with a second player. Volition was smart about the cutscenes, allowing each player to see their own creation in that role to keep immersion, while still allowing players to party up. The missions are slightly different, giving players the chance to tackle missions together by changing it up a bit."



"The game makes a lot of headway in terms of story quality, and the customization is beyond what we’ve seen in any sandbox title to date. While Saints Row 2 doesn’t reinvent the genre by any means, it brings more than enough big pimpin’ gameplay to keep me busy for a while.”

I just meant my negativeness.



From the first bit I saw, I wasn't really feeling it. And the Gary Busey ads didn't help either.



If I go into it with the right mind set I know I'll enjoy it, I just wasn't and haven't been feeling it. I willing to give it a chance though.

Gary Busey ads were great. How could you hate those.



Once you start playing you will enjoy it. Few people were in the same boat you are in saying they wanted to hate the game. Once they started playing it they just couldn't hate it.

<div class="bbcode_quote_body">

Tomorrow is October 14th, or the official day one launch of Saints Row 2 in the US. Only 2 more days for our friends down under and 3 days for our friends across the pond in the UK. To celebrate the launch, we’re going to do a live stream of Saints Row 2 from here in the Volition offices. Starting around 10 AM CST on October 14th, the show will begin. I’ll be your host for this event, but we’re going to bring in a bunch of individuals from the development team.



From character artists to programmers, designers and producers, many different folks will be on hand, including a few whom have already written Developer Blogs. Throughout the show, we’ll be running through different sections of the game, some activities, and a lot of customization. We’ll also give out some tips and tricks towards various activities and show off parts of the game that players might not know about. Along with all of that, there will be some great background information on what went into creating Saints Row 2 and the team behind it. We’ll try to have a few Q&amp;A sessions with the people in the chat room as we move along throughout the day.



The official link for the stream will be posted here around 9:30 AM CST before the stream goes live and we hope that all of you tune in. We recommend that you tell all your friends too!

Gamestop = IDIOTS.



Went to gamestop pick up the game. Should have check before I left. You know I though they could actual have a IQ and read the PC monitor correctly. Instead of giving me the 360 which I Pre-Ordered. They gave me PS3 version.



They also didn't even give me the code for UFO/MiniBike(even though I can find the code Online)

- If you play certain songs you character will sing along to the words(he sings the entire song) . Theirs also a achievement you get.

- Zombie Mini-Game is a nice Mini-Game. It's easy though.

- Really liking this game so far. Like it allot more than GTA IV. Going be interesting to see what kind of DLC we will see from this game. We already know theirs clothes packs coming soon &amp; Tera Patrick DLC.





*note* Like SR1 cheats(except for Pre-Order codes) disable the achievements.

^ that explains why you are getting it late. Well worth the wait.



Should have a OTX day for SR 2. I know I seen fallout playing it almost all day on Tuesday. I been busy haven't had allot of time to play the game. Had 0 time to play Online part.



Saints Row 2 seems a lot easier than SR1. Less annoying when you reach level 5 and 6. I remember Level 7 and 8 of escort and snatch were a B***h.



Love the cruise control on the cars. Now you don't have to drive and shoot at the same time. GTA IV should had this feature. Would make those annoying chase missions less annoying.



I don't like the tow truck handling. Thing handles like crap once you start towing something. At lease it did during the one missions I had that I had to tow a car.

If your talking about their HQ. I believe it upgrades as you defeat the other gangs.



Not sure might be my router is blocking it or something else. I need to check my Co-Op settings to see what it's set to. Let me know when you play so I'll make sure settings are fine.

I have bodyguards atm, Was using the sporty style. Suppose to be a few more in form of DLC. Of Course theirs the Ninja one as well once you progress though the story enough.



Not liking the clothes this time around. SR 1 clothes seem allot better. Specially the ink clothing pack. Even the bandanna's and doorag's are not the the greatest. Current my guy has Bandanns, a Football jersey and Motorbike Pants.



Really miss the Mike and Dave show. To bad talk Radio station was cut from the radio lineup.



I barely touched the Main Missions yet. Been playing all the actives. Their allot of fun. Only one I found a bit trick at first is the HeliAssault. Since I wasn't use to the controls.



Septic Avenger greatest Active and commentary is great when doing it.

Just make sure you put plenty of time aside. Game will take a good 35+ hours to get 100% in the game. I'm about 10 Hours in and only at 14%.



Best Open-world game this year. Beats GTA IV and Mercs 2 easily.

^ Revan is absolutely right about this. Yeah the PMC aka body guards look pretty cool.Mercenaries 2 will be trade next week for Fable 2 or Fallout 3 not sure which. I find the graphics in GTIV better but overall fun and whacked out things to do make SR2 win hands down.



SR2 seems like what GTAIV should've been while GTAIV seems like a reboot like the new James Bond/Superman Returns/Batman begins. It official, Saints Row 2 has been put in my untradable games club along with Oblivion and Rainbow 6: Vegas(part I). I have several games that I have bought and traded in and bought later again at a lower price. SR2 is never leaving. Hey can you make a gang in this one as well, if so let's do it OTX style.



Side note I was able to recreate my homeboy(R.I.P) pretty accurately but not as good as I did in part I. It's almost like communing with the dead all Jedi like.

I am really having fun with the single player so far, I almost don't want to put and down so I can just complete all the activities/diversions. The graphics are not the best, but it doesn't bother me since the game is really that fun. Enjoying a lot more than GTA IV as well.



My only problem with the game is that the online is laggy like SR 1 and that I suck at the MP. I occasionally go positive once in a while, but majority of the time, I get my ass handed to me.

Re: Official Saints Row/ Saints Row 2 Discussion



Like everyone else, I'm having alot of fun.



Some of the annoying mission concepts came back. I've only completed the brotherhood so far. So maybe it'll be a little different with the other two gangs.



I wouldn't say that I'm enjoying it more than GTA IV, but I will say that it has exceeded my expectations and I'm very much looking forward to continue playing.



It's funny how much time flies by without me realizing. I tell myself just one more mission and then I'm just for 2 hours playing.



Glad I picked it up.

Was only one Brotherhood mission that was annoying. Never had any problem with the missions except for Bank mission. I charged out of the bank instead of waiting and a dozen swat shot me.



Ronin and Sons of Samedi are the best.



My Order

1. Sons of Samedi

2. Ronin

3. Brotherhood


<hr class="bbcode_rule" />


If you do all the style shots you will unlock a very nice weapon. I unlocked it early on. Plus finished hitman Activity early too. Special Weapon + infinite ammo for the assault rifles = untouchable.


<hr class="bbcode_rule" />


Also races in SR 2 so far are just time trails. Theirs three levels, Gold, Sliver and bronze. To get the achievement and have it count toward 100% all you need is bronze in each race which is very easy. Only tricky part is some of the courses. Specially the air missions.


<hr class="bbcode_rule" />


btw, Their will be a Saints Row 3. Developer already confirmed that already that some features that didn't make it into SR2 will be put into Saints Row 3. I will almost bet that the story line will be:



<span class="bbcode_spoiler">MC going after Dex since he set the ultor assassin(forget the name they called them) squad after you and you never went after Dex after the extra missions.





Wonder if MC will go after Troy as well in SR3</span>




<hr class="bbcode_rule" />


Minor Spoilers.



After you finish the game. Head to the police station third floor(game doesn't tell you to do this), Behind the Authorized person only door. You will find three tapes, listen to them. they will inform you what really happened that night on the boat. Plus head into Troy's office and gather last bit of info.


<hr class="bbcode_rule" />


Towing = worse MiniGame. Truck handles like crap when towing things. Plus you have to deal with cops &amp; Gangs. easy for the first 6 levels. once you hit level 7. Forget about it. swat teams are called out. Plus your on a timer.

If your talking about the wiretaps in the police station &amp; the the extra mission before Ultor. I believe they unlock once you beat all the gangs.



I didn't check until I beat Ultor.

Crowd Control Level 4 -6 get's pretty dam insane. Might be the only activity I might be able to beat until I get some kind of strategy for it.

Crowd Control - anyone having problems use the bat to hit everyone. When theirs one or two toss them into one of the reward zones. Be carefully in the higher levels. When your about 2000 away from beating it. Fans will pull out assault rifles.

<div class="bbcode_quote_body">As mentioned in a previous blog post, we acknowledged that a patch would be created for the 360 version of Saints Row 2, which will address a few key issues presented by our community. In addition to that, we will also add some tweaks to Multiplayer in order to promote smoother and more balanced game play. All of the applicable balance changes and improvements listed here will be included in an upcoming PS3 patch. Due to technical differences between the PS3 and the Xbox 360, a number of the changes made in this patch do not apply to the PS3 edition of Saints Row 2.



This patch has been submitted to Microsoft, with an established release date pending. Once the patch has completed the certification process and a release date is known, the information will be announced to the community.



Please see the list below for a breakdown of the changes.



General:



* • Correcting the co-op mission completion and Achievement issues.

* • Implemented protection against disc read errors. May reduce or eliminate crashes experienced by some users.

* • Players will no longer be able to change the “Friendly Fire” setting during the Cat &amp; Mouse diversion.

* • Players will no longer be able to access the weapon radial menu during the Demolition Derby activity, including all Special Derbies.

* • Correcting an issue with scripted attack helicopters not firing missiles during missions.



Multiplayer:



* • Pipe Bombs will be removed from the default MP weapon loadout when a game begins.

* • The default time / score limit for Team Gangsta Brawl will change from “5 min / 25 kills” to “10 min / 50 kills”.

* • A 5 second period of invincibility will be applied to respawning players. Once an invulnerable player performs an attack, the effect will be removed. Invulnerability will be displayed by a special health bar indicator.



To reiterate, a final date has not been set for the release of this patch, since it still needs to pass certification, but once the exact date is known, everyone will be informed. We hope that all of you continue to enjoy Saints Row 2.</div>

^ DLC hasn't even hit yet. I really hoping form some more single Player content(missions, actives, etc...)



I need to go back forget what % I'm at. Don't think I'll get 100% because of the stupid tow truck diversion. Tow truck controls like a car that's driving on ice.

<div class="bbcode_quote_head">Quote:</div>
<div class="bbcode_quote_body">With the pending North American release of Saints Row 2 PC tomorrow, January 6th, I thought it would be a good idea to prepare those of you for the digital download off of Steam, or detail how to complete retail verification. Hopefully this will save you some time tomorrow and will get a few early questions out of the way. Hit the jump for some initial setup steps.



Step 1: Check your video card drivers. (FREE)



I can’t tell you how many people forget to do this, and then wonder why a specific game won’t run properly. Remember that you need to meet our requirements to play the game, or you’ll run into issues. You can find the minimum and recommended requirements HERE. There are many video cards out there, but the best way to update your card is to head to the official websites for each manufacturer. If you do not know what card you have, there are a few ways to find out.



The easiest way is begin by clicking on “Start” &gt;&gt; “Settings” &gt;&gt; “Control Panel”. Now, double click on the “System” icon, then select the “Hardware” tab at the top, followed by “Device Manager”. A new window will pop up, and you should open up the “Display adapters” section. Right there should be the manufacturer and model number of your video card.



NVIDIA owners, head HERE.

ATI owners, head HERE.



Follow the instructions on their website, and the proper selections will allow you to download the appropriate drivers for your system. You will have to restart your system for the changes to take effect.



Step 2: Download Steam and create an account. (FREE)



As has been stated within our forums, you will need to verify that you own a copy of Saints Row 2 PC through Steam. An internet connection is required for this initial verification, but after that you will have the option to “Play Offline”, unless you want to play Co-Op or Multiplayer.



You can download Steam by clicking HERE. Look for the green box on the left side which states “Get Steam Now - Free Download”.



Once installed, you will need to follow their instructions and create a unique username and password.



Step 3: (For Multiplayer/Co-Op) - Download GameSpy and create an account. (FREE)



If you never plan on playing Multiplayer, you will not need to have a GameSpy account. If you do plan on accessing multiplayer, just like with Steam above, you will need to download and install GameSpy so that you can grab the server browser software being used by SR2. GameSpy can be downloaded for free HERE.



Choose the “Ad Supported” selection for the free version. Just like with Steam, you will need to create a unique UserID and Password. I recommend using a different password than you did for Steam, for a little added security.



Remember to never give out your password to anyone!



Step 4: Buy the game!



There are a few ways to purchase Saints Row 2 PC. Either through a brick-and-mortar retail store, from various online retailers, or directly off of Steam with a digital download.



The in-store / online retailer option will have an auto-run installer once you put the DVD into your computer. Just follow the instructions and you’ll be on your way.



If you choose the Steam option, you can either use the “Store” tab at the top of the program, or you can go to the game store link and purchase the game there. It will take some time to download (depending on your connection), so make sure you have enough hard drive space, go out and grab something to eat, then return and hopefully your game will be downloaded.



Before you launch the game, we recommend that you turn off any non-essential programs. To launch the game, Just double click on the new icon, or click “Launch” in the lower right corner of Steam to begin the game.



If you run into any issues, feel free to ask for help in our forums or click the “Comment” link below, but please remember to search first to ensure your question has not already been posted.</div>

Great game maybe even a Goty. Not the GOTY but one of the top 10 games of 2008. You got everything. Co-op full game. Multiplayer( is this broke cause everytime I try to do some DM I get kicked before it connects)Good story. Varied missions. Good Graphics(not soul snatchingly amazing but good). Great gameplay. Good mission replay system. I played 38hrs and there are things in the game I have not done ie activies and diversions. Very good game well worth $60.

Saints Row brings up bad memories for me. Remember when we were all playing Saints Row 1 and Dblaze sister was killed? I cried for someone I didn't even know because of a friendship I had with her sister online. I just can't shake this out my mind. I'll probably never pick this up.

Some Info I dig up and remembered.



If you rewatch some of the videos and read some of the interview they did drop some hints about the DLC. First being Tera Patrick being in the Game in some form. Even Tera Patrick herself said she would appear in the game in the form of DLC.



Other is Dex is still alive after you finish the game. My Guess is that you will go after Dex at some point. Since SR 3 is suppose to take a direction. I think they would want to wrap the MC Story Arc.



Troy is still alive not sure if the MC would go after the Chief of Police. In SR1 MC did kill the Chief of Police.

<div class="bbcode_quote_head">Quote:</div>
<div class="bbcode_quote_body">[UPDATES BELOW] As some people have noticed, SR2 for PlayStation 3 updated to version 1.20 last night. Below are the details of what is included in the patch.

General:
<div class="bbcode_indent" style="margin-left:4em">
• Implemented protection against disc read errors. May reduce or eliminate crashes experienced by some users.

• Players will no longer be able to change the “Friendly Fire” setting during the Cat &amp; Mouse diversion.

• Players will no longer be able to access the weapon radial menu during the Demolition Derby activity, including all Special Derbies.

• Correcting an issue with scripted attack helicopters not firing missiles during missions.

• Added in code support for upcoming DLC. (Players will not notice anything different for this)
</div>
Multiplayer:
<div class="bbcode_indent" style="margin-left:4em">
• Pipe Bombs will be removed from the default MP weapon loadout when a game begins.

• The default time / score limit for Team Gangsta Brawl will change from “5 min / 25 kills” to “10 min / 50 kills”.

• A 5 second period of invincibility will be applied to respawning players. Once an invulnerable player performs an attack, the effect will be removed. Invulnerability will be displayed by a special health bar indicator.
</div>
As you can see, this is pretty much the same patch which was being prepared for the 360 version. We will be sending out the 360 patch to everyone early next week, most likely on Tuesday, March 24th. Please note that this is a tentative date and is subject to change. The 360 patch contains everything shown in our previous announcement (http://community.saintsrow.com/blogs/?p=420) (which includes the co-op achievement fix), plus the new code support for upcoming DLC.

Finally, we're also going to be wiping the multiplayer leader boards clean for PS3 and 360 due to the above changes and their impact on multiplayer as a whole. If you've ever wanted to get to the top of the leader boards, this is your chance. I'll update this announcement once the 360 patch has been released and when the leader board wipes have been completed.

[UPDATE #1]: The PS3 Leaderboards have been reset.</div>

Send me a invite. Since my game is almost at 90%. barely anything left.



I just can't use a mic. I think my mic port on my controller is busted.



Still need to finish up Insurance Fraud and Mayhem and I'm done with all the side missions. At lease Mayhem is easier this time around SR 1 was a B*tch to complete at Level 9.



Here is a tip do the tow truck diversion in Co-Op. Since that diversion is annoying. Tow truck drives like a car driving over ice without any snow tires.

<div class="bbcode_quote_body">On Wednesday, March 25th, Saints Row 2 will be focus of a talk at the annual Game Developers Conference. The Game Developers Conference® (GDC) is the world’s largest professionals-only game industry event. Presented every spring in San Francisco, it is the essential forum for learning, inspiration, and networking for the creators of computer, console, handheld, mobile, and online games.

Volition employees have presented a few talks over the years, and this year is no exception. Chris Fortier, Character Artist, will be presenting his 60-minute talk on “Universal Character System in Saints Row 2″ from 10:30-11:30 AM.
<div class="bbcode_indent" style="margin-left:4em">
Attendees will learn how SAINTS ROW 2’s character customization and random NPC generator work. Some things that will be discussed include the universal body mesh, character morphing, normal map blending, layered clothing, shader-based customization features, how we assemble NPCs and how all this character variation affects animation.
</div>
Scott Phillips (http://community.saintsrow.com/blogs/?p=35), Lead Designer, will also be showcasing a talk on Saints Row 2 entitled “Breathing LIFE into an Open World” from 12:00 - 1:00 PM on Wednesday as well. A good portion of talk is similar to a past developer blog called “Creating Life in a Sandbox (http://community.saintsrow.com/blogs/?p=176)“.
<div class="bbcode_indent" style="margin-left:4em">
Examine the history of populating open worlds and a detailed description and post-mortem of the LIFE system developed by Volition for SAINTS ROW 2. Attendees will learn about the inspiration, organization, methodology, successes and failures of the LIFE system used to add life to the open world city of Stilwater.
</div>
Since I know most of you won’t be attending GDC, I’ll do my best to either get a video or the PowerPoint presentation from his talk once complete, so that all of you can learn a little bit about what goes into our customization system and other various features.</div>

You should start with one gang and stick with it to the end.



I did Sons of Samedi -&gt; Ronin -&gt; The Brotherhood



MC does some pretty f'ed up things to Maero(The Brotherhood Leader).



Also Once you beat the game their is one Secret mission. Game will not show you where it is though.

Here is a tip might find useful when you start the heliassault. Try to stay above the the building enough so you fly over them with easy. But also don't get to high that you can't shot the oncoming enemies. This respect mission can be challenging at times. Specially in the later levels when you have other assault choppers coming after and the ground assults have RPG's. Those RPG's can take out parts of your chopper like the guns &amp; Rocket's. Also don't worry about the van you are protecting as long as you can take out the enmies the van will be fine.


<hr class="bbcode_rule" />


Crowd Control can also be tricky at the later levels since the crowd will start to bring guns. Use RB(I think thats the button) to run and tose them into bouns area for extra cash.


<hr class="bbcode_rule" />


Septic Avenger is pretty easy. just aim and shoot. Remember you do have breaks on the Septic vechicle. Spray the police cars as soon as you can so they will not try to shoot at you.


<hr class="bbcode_rule" />


Demolition Derby - Just use the boost right before you hit someone. You need to be the last person to hit the car for it to count. If you see a car about to blow and you didn't cause it just hit the car you will get credit for it.


<hr class="bbcode_rule" />


If you do certain things you will unlocks special weapons in the game. You get some special weapons from Respect mission/Gang Mission. Other can be earned in the world by doing certain things. Their also upgrades to your health, wanted level, etc... too.


<hr class="bbcode_rule" />


Everything else is pretty easy. If you need any more tips or help just ask.

yes you must take out the strongholds to advance the story.
