That's a year odd away, enjoy Saints Row while you can. Nothing else can touch it.

Is there nobody else on nvnews that has got a hold of this game yet? lol
That's my idea of an nvnews gang out the window then, could have been fun.
Good multiplayer idea.

I posted in another thread that I bought both Saint's Row and Enchanted Arms the day they came out.

Some of the radio talkshow things are hilarious.

"I think the problem we have, is that we need to do drive by training when people go for their tests, to help limit civilian casualties in the ghetto."

Spilt my beer listening to that one. LOL

Right, time to go steal some hookers and cap some pimps.

Pisses all over GTA though, it's a good fix until GTA4 comes along. It has alot of work to do to beat this beauty of a game.

LOL Point taken.

Though JE delay is due to the developer not waiting a quick and nasty port.

I went out and bought a copy after renting it. I don't like the GTA games because of the crappy controls and the loading and the driving to the mission to redo it. Saint's row has none of that. It's a much more convienient and playable GTA.

What it lacks is GTA's content. Particularly SAn Andreas. That game had Bikes, Planes, Choppers, everything. You name it, you drive it. Activities everywhere. RPG character building and leveling up. Big name celebs doing the voiceovers. Hell, the radio stations themselves were almost worth the price of admission. Saint's row has none of that either. Sure it's got a radio, but it's hard to find anything good on it after hearing "bounce you like a bad check (back in the day)" 20 times.

What it does have is sweet graphics, smooth and customizable controls, Havok physics, and a half decent multiplayer. It's also got a character customizer that works. It's the first game in which I've actually been able to make a character that looks like me. Not even Tiger Woods could put me in the game like that. It's hilarious to see me running around as a gangster.

The Ai is pretty good too. I walked up on some random guy a little while ago. He was just standing on a cliff, just staring out at the water. I approach him and he jumps off the cliff yelling, "I'll never have to eat my wife's cooking again!!!" Totally random thing. I've never seen that in any GTA game. They also have gang fights going on around you, which are fun to watch sometimes. And the civilians will often get into fights when there's an accident. The AI's almost as good as Oblivion's sometimes.

I think this game is worth about 50 bucks. It's not as packed with variety and content as GTA: SA, but it's not as annoying and it's more fun to play.
