Latest Episode: Episode 30: Disconnected in Antarctica feat. Kaubocks


I recognize like one person in this picture.

What is Saints Row?

Saints Row is a goofy as hell franchise developed by Volition, Inc, formerly published by THQ before they went under and currently published by Deep Silver that is dedicated to saying to whatís acceptable and realistic in video games. You play as the leader of a gang/massive media mogul named The Third Street Saints and the main conflicts of the games involve bids for power in whatever city is the main setting of the game. It started as a serious GTA clone, but then it got a little goofier with Saints Row 2 (donít quote me on either, I havenít played the first two). Saints Row the Third decided that any of the seriousness left in Saints Row 2 had to go to make room for crazy awesome and/or stupid stunts, like skydiving a tank or taking a chainsaw to hordes of luchadors for the spectacle. People took pretty fondly to the craziness, which is presumably why the series got crazier and crazier. That said, what was Volition to do after the insanity that was SR3? They made this.

Saints Row IV decided that Saints Row the Third wasnít crazy enough and took a sledgehammer to what was left of the rationality of this franchise. That gang leader you play as? They're the president of the USA. Your main competition for power? A loving alien empire. Your tools? Superpowers. This game is all kinds of and Iím here to hopefully show that off. This game was meant to be DLC for Saints Row the Third but for whatever reason, the DLC plan was scrapped and rolled into a whole new game. As such, it feels more like an expansion to the Third than an entirely new game, but it's still good fun.

So how will this LP work?

One of the best features that the franchise has is its co-op. Your co-op partner is seamlessly added into the story by being completely ignored so no one questions why this second person came out of nowhere but is on equal terms to the boss. That said, this will be a co-op LP that Iím opening the floodgates to for viewer participation. Got this game on PC? Send me a PM or ask nicely in the thread and come join me in various shenanigans! (EDIT: Don't worry about having a fully decked out boss, the game locks you out of using powers I haven't unlocked.) Alternatively, I have a twitter that I can be reached at. Also, because this game has a fantastic character creation tool, you can request I turn my boss into various characters, so long as you provide me with a reference picture! (EDIT: Please wrap your images in [timg] tags) I'll try to run it as one episode of progress and the next of side missions and stuff. Let's have a good time!

Spoilers?

I'd rather not see any regarding the story, but if you must, use spoiler tags.

The character customisation in SR3 and SR4 were kind of disappointing in that you were unable to make anything less than someone who spent all of their time in the gym or all of the time in a bakery. Never again shall Smack McDaniel, the worlds most British Heroin addict, rampage though an imaginary city.

People keep saying this but it's absolutely not true. Firstly, SR4 adds more new content than SR3, so the idea that it's a glorified expansion is pretty ridiculous right off the bat, but the basic idea that it's the planned Enter the Dominatrix expansion for SR3 expanded into a full game is wrong as well. It contains elements of that planned expansion as they had already started on it, but it's a different thing. The Enter the Dominatrix DLC for SR4 shows off some of what they had planned for the SR3 expansion, and it includes different characters, different enemies and a totally different villain to SR4.

Well, what I meant was that the planned DLC got some of its elements rolled into Saints Row IV when it got cancelled. I still maintain that SR4 kind of feels like an expansion pack to SR3 though. It totally isn't, but it kind of feels like one to me.

Female Boss 1 is a Laura Bailey voiced murderous sociopath with a heart of gold and a vocabulary of purest sewage.

So, pretty much Kaine from Nier with more access to firearms and better people skills.

On these grounds, I vote Kaine.

Man, I have two requests and I'm not sure which one I want more.

Option 1: The Boss, that is from MGS3.

Option 2: Any US president of your choice. Hell, if you weren't taking lots of requests already, I'd say start with George Washington and keep working your way down the line.

I reckon there's a good case to be made for trying to recreate any character that one of the voice actors has previously portrayed.

(The 7 voices are: Troy Baker, Robin Atkin Downes, Kenn Michael, Laura Bailey, Diane Michelle, Sumalee Montano and, well, Nolan North)

- The Medic from TF2
- Kazuhita Miller from Peace Walker

The only downside to this is that, regardless of the choice, they'd have to be inexplicably cockney.

You know, at some point I was going to do Travis anyway. Also, sorry to say, but I don't have the DLC TF2 heads so I'm not going to be able to use the Medic mascot head. I'll try to make my boss look as close as I can though!

Alright, the list of boss requests has been updated! Also I just picked up the two story DLCs, so they'll be covered in the LP at some undisclosed point in time. That being said, should I show off a blind run of those DLC missions (they'll be done with a co-commentator who's familiar with them), or should I play through first off camera and basically just do them like the rest of the LP?

Can't comment on that. However, please change the voice of the boss every couple of missions to show off each personality.

I don't care what he looks like, I just love Troy Baker (the current Voice Actor you're using) and will be super happy the more you use his voice. Looking forward to this, just on account of the fact that I will never play these games but I kind of wonder what they're like because of the hype surrounding them.

Edit: Double Nine is right though, in reality. From what I can see, the voices they got for the Boss are all really cool, so I wouldn't be too disappointed hearing them all.

Oh no, I am definitely going to show off all of the Boss voices to match their appearance, don't worry about that. Although, there should probably be at least one more female boss on the request list!

Edit: Quick, someone check my math. I did Pierce's question with his planar lamina and found the center of mass to be (sqrt(2), 6/5).
