Independent of any Saints Row shenanigans, how much stuff is there to do in the game, and does the core loop hold up?

Thanks a lot for that.

Is this cash and crystal system being used for anything particularly interesting, or is it a bog standard open world character development thing?

Oh my goodness this game is a lot of fun already - it's very earnest in its silliness.

Weirdly attached to Hollywood. Fortune seems fun but she's so squishy.

So, uh, Braddock is a complete monster and makes the rest of the team redundant right, holy poo poo.

Yeah, Braddock, Rama and Fortune are my current main team. They murder everything and swapping between them lots negates any squishiness they have individually.

Oh my god, that video of Hollywood's porn film was amazing.

Also I completely missed that Braddock and Friday were a couple.

Nah, there are 350ish shards in the game. There's a counter on the Agency Progress screen.

Across the course of the campaign I only found 150. Something tells me that last trophy will not be one of my goals...

He's also a hilarious murder machine if you're got good aim and use his special as an execution. Couple shots bring the enemy down enough for it to kill, which you then chain onto the next poor bastard, etc.

I find him much easier to use effectively than the ninja lady at any rate. Her lack of stagger protection has seen me murdered more than should be happening.

Now you're ready for level 15 difficulty.

I guess the Hardcore Gamer trophy is glitched/bugged for me. I beat the last two main operations on 7 and wanted to go back, but no dice. It seems from my limited searching others are having this problem as well, which sucks because I wanted to get that sweet platinum. Don't know if I feel like a whole new save file/playthrough.

Doesn't it include those single shot character operations?

August Gaunt was an amazing villain and his car alarm was beautiful.


Quasipox posted:

From what I've tried/read, you can't seem to change the difficulty on those. I was on 9 and loaded up Rama's and it was set back to Rookie difficulty.

Oh, hmm, I got nothing then. I've gotten a couple car related trophies upon entering a car rather than actually doing any stunts, so buggered flags isn't out of the question.

Yeah, it's a drat shame. At least SR4 was a fantastic way of saying goodbye to the characters.

Kinzie's quite fun to play. Double jump with a dash, shield buster and hacker (of course!). Main attack is a gauntlet that lets out more shots the longer you charge it, her special is a wide and hard hitting attack that debuffs everything (and she does a lot of extra damage to debuffed enemies), while her mayhem causes her shots to hack enemies which makes them run at each other and explode. Haven't had time to explore her gear or LEGION tech yet.

What I really like though is how much personality they've given her animations; she doesn't feel like they cheaped out at all on designing her. She stiffens herself really awkwardly when sprinting, flails around when coming to a sudden stop, keeps having to push her glasses up the bridge of her nose, etc. Quite playful dialogue (haven't heard anything between her and Kingpin or Gat...yet) and though a lot of her abilities and flavour text plays around with the Dominatrix stuff, it isn't a one note "ha ha she has sex" joke like the codename implies.

So, Safeword at level 40 with Legion tech is hilarious. Not only do her regular attacks begin stacking debuffs (which procs that huge +50% damage on enemies) and regenerating her shield, but she gets random buffs on a kill, makes a random enemy explode every 10 seconds, and has a very quick Mayhem recharge because all of this counts as "stylish" kills. She can't take much of a hit (about 3k health with 7k shield), but she doesn't need to at the rate she zips about.

I adore her. Also noticed she drinks Saints Flow as part of her idle animation.
