People liked Gat because of the first 2 games, he was the crazy squadmate in 1, the only returning squadmate in 2, and had a bunch of cool scenes and actual characte in his plotlines there. In 3 he got Poochied back to his home planet, and everything else is Volition compensating for how shit that move was, with the most 2d, flanderised version of the character possible.Loved 3, but some truly incredible moments aside, everything since felt like an escalation in whackyness that tried and failed to capture that games magic.
The weird obsession with the charisma black hole that was Johnny Gat didnt help either.
We could definitely do with a game reveling in sex and cartoon violence while sticking two fingers up to the PC brigade now more than ever though, so I hope we get a sequel.
Wasn't the PC port done by CDprojekt actually?More infomation:
- You will NO LONGER need Gentlemen of the Row to play the game normally. Apprantly Performance issues have been fixed as well. (on modern hardware, Game runs too fast)
- It's almost done. ETA is "when it's done, but almost complete". IdolNinja and one other person working closely on this patch.
- Gentlemen of the Row will get a patch to work with the new patch.
- This is made possible because they found the Source Code to the game. For those who do not know, PC Port was done by a different studio that went under. Source Code was lost in the sale of assets.
Wasn't the PC port done by CDprojekt actually?
In June 2008, THQ confirmed that a Microsoft Windows port of the game was in development. It was developed by the localization team at CD Projekt, the CD Projekt Localisation Centre. The studio later became known as Porting House, and has been referred to by Volition as "CD Projekt Black" (in parallel to CD Projekt Red). The port was released in North America on January 5, 2009, in Europe on January 23, and in Australia on February 5. In April 2016, Volition released a Linux port of the Windows version. In the aftermath of the auctioning of THQ's assets following its bankruptcy in 2013, the source code for the PC port of Saints Row 2 was believed to be lost.
In the interim, the game has become highly unplayable, with no multiplayer support following the shutdown of the GameSpy service. In October 2019, Volition announced it had found the source code, and it will begin work to rebuild the game for modern systems, including replacing GameSpy with Steam matchmaking support, and allow for user mods. Additionally, when the update is releaesd it will contain the two DLCs, "Ultor Exposed" and "Corporate Warfare" which had not been previously released for personal computers.
Make it about idiotic SJWs.I liked 3 & 4.
How do you make a Saints Row game in today's political climate?
I had already pretty much knew it was going to be a saints row 2 update on PC...i just wanted some public exposure on the original multiplayer...that had a whole different fanbaseWho cares for sr2 now? Im a huge sr 1/2 fan but jesus christ who gives a shit
Yes. It was under their CD Projekt Black which the only thing they did was SR2 PC.Wasn't the PC port done by CDprojekt actually?
Loads of Saints Row fans? The second game is almost unanimously considered the best in the franchise, but many PC players skipped over or abandoned it because of the shoddy port job. I certainly want to go back to it after playing the heck out of it on the 360.Who cares for sr2 now? Im a huge sr 1/2 fan but jesus christ who gives a shit
