I was trying something new, SnakeOil. I know it's not the standard review, but if you pay attention, you'll see a lot of what I'm talking about is commentary on the game.SnakeoilSage said:Greg... what was that? You didn't really review anything and you did it in the weirdest voice I have ever heard. It was almost... transcendant. It's like listening to a teenaged quasi-faux-suburban-white-gangsta-wannabe from a wealthy family and too much of dad's money hosting an episode of Cribs, promoting his pretentious house while his disapproving Old Country grandmother glares at him on camera, and he's trying to pretend she isn't there, and the episode keeps getting more and more awkward and tense while the camera lingers on shots of her flaring nostrils and tendons creaking as she rings the handles of her walker, and you're starting to imagine the naggy guilt-storm you have to put up with after the show in order to keep your trust fund.
So... I'm guessing you liked the game, but you said nothing that wasn't already emphasized in the game trailers or brought back from Saint's Row 2. Maybe you're trying to keep most of the suprisies to a minimum, maybe between this an Skyrim you were running late on your review, but there's... nothing here. Nothing about how melee combat feels or if the missions are improved or whether you have to spend all of your time building up respect in mini-games in order to complete missions. Nothing about the graphics or the quality of the music stations or the kind of weapons you can get. Nothing.
How can a game with so many fix'ems get such an empty review, man? It's okay, you can tell us. I don't want an apology or anything, just, what happened to ya, Greg?
Do you know how well the PC version of the game runs? Plan on getting it for the PC (maybe, depending on Aussie censorship) and was hoping to get some data on its performance.Greg Tito said:So much to do in Steelport, so little time ?
True enough, but just stick to yourself man. "Shaft O'Mickinley" isn't nearly as cool as Greg Tito, Saint of Steelport, dig it?Greg Tito said:I was trying something new, SnakeOil.

If you want the more informative stuff without the character, check out the written review. It's got all of the the things you wanted to me to discuss. The two parts (video and article) are best when consumed together, especially with this review, but with all our reviews.
One question, can you import characters from the initiation station smoothly, or do you have to remake them?Greg Tito said:Saints Row: The Third Review
