[color=#000000]From the ashes of THQ, Volition is back with its new masters Deep Silver, with the announcement of Saints Row IV. This time, the Saints set their sights on the entire United States, with players getting to become the President. [/color]

[color=#000000]Oh, and aliens have invaded, and transported the Saints to a weird Steelport simulation. Because [i]Saints Row[/i] really needed to be more ridiculous![/color]

[color=#000000]"[i]Saints Row IV[/i] lets players delve into an arsenal of alien weaponry and technology that will turn each Saint into an ultimate entity of destruction. Utilize out-of-this-world superpowers to fight all the way to the top. With intensified action and enhanced customization, players can use their newfound superpowers and leap over buildings, outrun the fastest sports cars, or send enemies flying with telekinesis in the greatest, most insane installment of [i]Saints Row[/i] yet."[/color]

[color=#000000]It'll be on store shelves August 20 in North America, and August 23 elsewhere.[/color]

SR3 was pretty fun/wacky. I approve of this.

Awesome. Odds it will be better and run more smoothly on the pc than the next GTA game? If Rockstar even bothers with a pc version..? I think the odds are good.

Rockstar isn't relevant any more. GTA4 was a technical disaster on all platforms - the console version had to run at a lower resolution and still had slow down, while the PC was an appalling port (despite being significantly delayed). As for the gameplay, it was pretty weak - it was only the narrative and presentation that stood out. It has yet to release any gameplay videos of GTA5 (usually a bad sign) and the footage so far looks incredibly dated.

I'm much more interested in Mafia III, Watch_Dogs and Saints Row IV.

Let's not forget they also missed a huge opportunity by not making a Red Dead Redemption port for the pc as well. Which likely would have been just as shoddy. So that may or may not have been a blessing in disguise. Still, I don't have a console so I would have bought it.

Yeah. Rockstar is too busy unloading trucks of money from Microsoft and Sony to worry about integrity or quality.

Looking forward to SF4 but you can tell it evolved from what originally was going to be expansion. I just hope their is enough new content to justify the 4 tag.
So long as they improve the coop (if possible). Then i'm in.

Never played any of the saints row games, but having super powers in an open world that looks to play a lot like what you would imagine GTA with super powers would be fun as hell...definitely considering buying this when it comes out....tempted to buy SR3 until then, but you don't get super powers in SR3, do you?

Max Payne 3 was decent, wasn't it? I have it, but haven't touched it yet.

Has a Mafia 3 been announced?

You do in the sense that through playing the game you can eventually unlock god mode and unlimited ammo for weapons. I never finished the game though so I can't fully answer that question.

Yes and no. It was well-optimised and had decent graphics but the problem with it was that a lot of the cutscenes were pre-rendered at console quality (720p, low resolution graphics, no anti-aliasing, etc) and it was incredible jarring going from 2560x1600 maxed out to ultra-low res 720p. At first I thought the game was broken. Also, the levels were much smaller than GTA so there's no telling whether that performance will apply to GTA5. Not that it matters, as PC gamers are once again being treated like dirt by Rockstar.

Yeah, and it's going to be a next-gen title. :)

First of all I've missed the Mafia 3 announcement /nerdgasm.
But a new Saints Row can only mean proper good fun - Sure the others have been flawed but the coop and ridicoulus things makes it worth the investment. Nothing better than moving down a bunch of people, creating total chaos, while dressed as a bunny. Though the Third was poorly optimized, as I often experienced horrendus FPS drops.

I missed it too. I suck. I am usually on top of announcements/reveals.

I thought Mafia II was a much better game than GTA4. Obviously Mafia II was more linear and the game environment wasn't as large but it had better gameplay, graphics, performance, presentation and narrative. The fact that Mafia III is going to be a next-gen title is even better. I'm also excited about Watch_Dogs, though it remains to be seen if the gameplay is an open as the videos make it seem. At least those developers treat the PC platform with respect, unlike Rockstar.

As for Saints Row 4, it just looks like more of the same. Which reminds me, I need to get back into Saints Row 3 - I didn't play much of it but I really quite enjoyed it.

You get some kind of super powers in a DLC ( The Trouble with Clones ) of SR3 and, of course, I approve this announcement :)

Wow I didn't know Mafia 3 was announced either, loved the first two. I will probably pick this up on sale later I liked the first three but I preferred GTA 4 over them its still my favorite sand box game.

I believe the game was also loading assets in the background during those cutscenes.

And I can completely understand the necessity of that on consoles but there's no excuse for it on PC.

Err? The majority of people still use hard drives, and the assets on PC are much better quality.

I rather disagree.

Games like Far Cry 3 and Skyrim do just fine without the need for constant loading screens. And even if one were to accept that the pre-rendered cutscenes were required

Skyrim sure has high quality assets yeahhhhh

(and IIRC the only cutscene in FC3 at all was the intro, don't know though.)

Far Cry 3 had plenty of cutscenes and had much better graphics, all without needing to use pre-rendered cutscenes. And you deliberately ignored the other part of my post.
