Braddock's Cable outfit was was unexpected, but really cool. I have to assume Rauma has a Storm reference.

Welp! Looks like my wife is getting a Steam copy of this game.

Just need Shaundi.
Yeah I was trying to think about what happened if they tied her in which one they'd pick, Cocaine Shaundi or Stoner Shaundi. (Or both in one and give her the codename Gemini or something?) Seeing as she's not even on the list whereas we will probably see Safeword turn up.

Anyway, I have run into a few of those annoying bugs as well (I think at one point where I was up to the final Not-Beiber mission, every key except WASD and the mouse was bugged out - including Esc so I couldn't even open up the Pause screen and reload from checkpoint.

I think though, despite the bugs, I'm still prepared to call the game Good although I think it depends on how you find the writing - I think it matches the tone of the later SR games (and is certainly more coherent than The Third) but it's doing its own thing.

Yeah Rama is Storm.

IIRC here are all of them

Hollywood = Iron Man
Fortune = Star Lord apparently
Hardtack = Luke Cage?
Braddock = Cable
Yeti = Panthro and Hulk and maybe Colossus
Daisy = Wonder Woman and maybe Red She-Hulk
Rama = Storm and Hawkeye
Joule = Harley Quinn
Red Card = ???
Oni = Joker
Scheherazade = Sub-Zero

I don't know if Kingpin and Gat even have cosplay skins.

Gat gets Magnum PI and Crockett from Miami Vice I think.

(Ironic thing is that Magnum PI was a sort of a spinoff from the original Hawaii Five-O)

Hardtack is Bruce Lee, specifically Game of Death. Red Card is Barf from Spaceballs. I'm a little annoyed that only some of the cosplay skins are unlocked from the start, I love Scheherazade's Killer Kold skin.

Just sticking my head in. Game is fun. Better than I was expecting. Gat lives in my squad permanently.

In fact I see Gat and Daisy as mandatory and only the 3rd slot as optional.

Don't think the game will have long legs but it's fun enough for a while. No regrets buying it but it makes me appreciate Saints Row 2 and 3 more.

I really just want a Saints Row 2 remaster using modern graphics & interface

For what it's worth, there would be basically no way to tell without the eye tattoo. Given the average blue and yellow 90s X-Men outfit And the "CABLE Layer" name on the gun makes it that much harder to click on that.

Saints Row 2 is fine as it is, clunky, glitchy and janky but it's all part of the charm. There's really no reason to go back to it since while the gameplay could use a fair amount of improvement mechanically, everything else is still perfectly fine. Now, a complete retelling of the original Saints Row in a new setting with new characters on the other hand...

(considering everything I think this is actually the likely option, due to Kingpin's backstory they can't really set it in Stilwater with the same old gangs unless they create another timeline, or continue from SR4 for a different story but that has the serial escalation problem)

Braddock definitely has elements of Bishop in there with the eye/tattoo thing. Probably a blend of both if she has the metal arm too, but I haven't checked.

I'm still sticking with my original stance on not really enjoying the open word that much. The amount of times a Golem spawns or an Ice Cannon or a Fracking device and then my screen get covered in explosions and then I have to clear them out while a sniper from a mile away pings me* for near enough all my health is just grating now. I'm thinking of just leaving it all and just doing base missions. Trouble with removing them though would be there'd be even LESS to do already.

*Git gud would apply, but I've yet to even KNOW there's a sniper around before I suddenly loose all my shield and half my health. Their tracking lasers (which I'll admit I can't get the time down on) are always lost in the chaos of the aforementioned explosions.

tbf while it is a Bruce Lee reference it also doubles absolutely perfectly as a Luke Cage Power Man costume

That's probably why they gave it to Hardtack actually

They'll never see it coming...


Here's all the skin references I've noticed so far:

Braddock - Going Dutch (Arnold's character from Predator), Mutant Enforcer (various X-Men)
Daisy - Pink and Proud (Zarya from Overwatch), Wonder Daisy (Wonder Woman)
Fortune - Galaxy Guardian (Star Lord from GotG)
Gat - Gat P.I. (Magnum P.I.), Johnny Crockett (Miami Vice)
Hardtack - Game of Mayhem (Game of Death)
Hollywood - Commander Hollywood (Captain America), Man of Iron (Iron Man), Stilwater Original (Saints Row )
Joule - Fungal Fiefdom (Mario), Malibu Joule (Barbie)
Kingpin - Funky Fresh (Fresh Prince of Bel Air, maybe?)
Oni - Ringbearer (The Ring), The Joking Killer (The Joker)
Rama - Eagle-Eye (Hawkeye), Living Legend (Rama from Hindu mythology), Verdant Vigilante (Green Arrow)
Red Card - Red Bazooka (Bazooka from G.I. Joe)
Scheherazade - Killer Kold (Sub-Zero from Mortal Kombat), Crimson Clan (I feel like it's a reference to Jinx from G.I. Joe, but I could be wrong)
Yeti - The Incredible Yeti (the Hulk), Thunderbeast (Panthro from Thundercats)

I also feel like Oni's Rising Dragon is a reference to something, but I have no idea what.

Also, no idea which skin of Rama's people keep thinking is supposed to be Storm.

Edit: Oh yeah, and out of all four of the 3-person teams, Firing Squad had the best team mission. I'm a huge sucker for Rashomon stories.

Huh. Didn't get that one for some reason. The only ones I got were the Franchise Force and Carnage A Trois ones. And I guess technically those six weren't actually preorder skins, they were just included with the Day One edition of the game.

Scheherazade has a pretty obvious Storm Shadow skin, too.

I thought Oni's Ringbearer skin was a reference to the Ring Wraiths from LOTR?

I found some Franchise Force skins on Steam for the PC version. They were free, so I don't know if they're part of the pre-order or just free skins.

Hollywood gets the outfit from his reality TV show. Hardtack gets a navy dress uniform. Fortune gets to be a steampunk pirate.

She definitely has a Winter Soldier skin because the gun that goes along with it has Barnes in the name.

One thing I find annoying about the game is how miserly they are about handing out skins. They really should have made then an unlockable purchase instead of random chance.

Yeah, I just spent about twenty minutes bombing around the back alley area after unlocking that, and drat near unlocked every vehicle in the process.

Also, Fortune, Scherezhad, and Daisy are an awesome team. Between the three you get a hacker, armor-piercer, and two shieldbusters. Plus each of them plays so super differently that it keeps gameplay fresh and interesting/

Oni is really ridiculous with the Legion tech that gives his Intimidating Stare ability Disrupt. He's basically invincible against bosses/lone enemies.
