    So! Anyone else playing it? The UK Steam version unlocked at 2300 last night.

    The whole intro section is brilliant, never laughed so much at a game :). The main game itself is a little same-y but it has that Just Cause 2 addictive base takeover element, I just find myself doing that for hours.

    I finished it last night with 90 some percent completion in about 22 hours. I think I'm only missing the co-op sidequests. The main quest didn't really feel all that long and I really missed the crib customization from the prior games. Sure it didn't do anything but it kind of felt like a visual representation of where you were at.

    That being said, the game made me laugh quite a bit, especially during some of the Pierce loyalty missions (spoiler) and the end in-game cinematic (spoiler). I may go through and try for gold on some of the side missions now but there's really not too much point I guess.

    Overall it was fun and I'm glad I played it... I'm just waiting for more DLC and then onwards to #5!

    :eek::eek: Do you ever sleep? :)

    Did you collect all 1,200 or so of those blue power up thingies, and did collecting more give you improved powers of some sort? I find myself getting side tracked very time I go somewhere trying to grab up more of those things.

    Yeah I collected all of them. It does improve your powers quite a bit.

    Gotcha... thanks. I think I am in about 10% and have collected 300 or so. Will keep up the hunt. :)

    So is it worth picking up?

    The fact its more li e crackdown is what has me interested, sadly I normally get bored with previous Saints Row & even GTA open world games.

    I'm really enjoying it so far. If crude, potty humor offends you... this is not the game for you though. :p

    I recently finished Crackdown (part of the free XBox Gold this month) and I would say it is similar in concept, but much much larger with a lot more to do. I got bored toward the end of Crackdown, but SR IV is keeping me entertained.

    That was my next question... can you still smack people with a purple ____? :D

    How's the dubstep gun?

    Yes you can. There is also a green tentacle if you like.

    The dubstep gun I didn't find as interesting as I hoped. The singularity gun though... that gun pretty much destroys everything...

    Loved the Saints Row series since the first one. IV isn't letting me down so far. Packed full of jokes as always and Zinyak is the most badass alien I've seen. I know I'm going to spend many hours in this game.

    I hope you can still give your female character uber-bombastic-tits? :D

    There is an awesome gun that is really small that is hidden as an easter egg.
    It's really powerful :)

    Well I ended up picking it up on the PS3 too. It plays better on my PS3 than it does on my MacPro ? Go figure ? Very enjoyable so far.

    So I didn't start playing until a week after it came out (was too busy levelling my Lancer on FFXIV). I got to the point where I "romanced" Kinzie.... I giggled so much, I woke my GF. I explained why I was laughing, and she rolled her eyes and threw a pillow at me.

    Those of you who romanced Shaundi, am I the only one who thought it was strangely poignant and touching?

    I love the fact that Pierce reacted to my ladyPres' the same way he reacted to my little brother's dudePres.

    "I don't normally swing that way, but **** it, I'm down"

    Again, cackled far too much.

    I am playing The Third right now, loving it!

    Does IV have a character import feature, like the Mass Effect series? Want to keep my guy's good looks, but it would be a pain to recreate.

    Yes and no. Instead of it being a direct import feature like Mass Effect, you can upload your character design to the Saints Row website from inside SR the Third, then when you log into SR4 you can download it.

    Go to saintsrow.com set up an account, if you don't already have one. Make sure your PSN/XBL/Steam account is linked to your SaintsRow.com account. Upload your Boss, it'll show up in the website (My Steelport > Characters), under My Created Characters, there should be a + in the Queue column, hit that and it should show up in Your Downloadable Character Queue.

    From that point, when you're in SR4 you'll be able to download your SR3 character.
