    i counted 12 movie / game references in this trailer. anybody have more?

    He’s right, it’s definitely time travel.

    Time travel makes much more sense than that “simulation” thing Zinyak was talking about.

    Maybe the old gang are computer generated avatars created, I assume, from the collective memories of the existing gang. Something Kinzie could whip up in her sleep. I would also guess the simulated person not only consists of the positive memories but the negative memories as well. Which could lead to some interesting twists in the game given some of the histories of the old gang.

    don’t take it personally, I’m a “I’ll believe it when I see it” kind of person. but what i meant to say is that SR IV’s wacky-ness level already went through the roof simply because aliens are in it…

      I’m saying it isn’t all “wacky herp derp aliens woo!” The story is dramatic and treated seriously and the whole concept with the aliens and the simulation is a simply a brilliant way for Volition to introduce a ton of fanservice with characters and events from previous games. It’s actually played pretty straight with some light hearted moments and very different in tone from SRTT. It’s like in SR2 how you could bring your own sense of anarchy into a mostly serious story by, say, wearing a silly outfit during a dramatic cutscene. Same kind of vibe.

      Volition totally got it right imo.

    This game will totally rock. I am counting the days. =P And gona have fun with my own dubstep gun. xD

    I am wondering, will Eliza Dushku voice the other Shaundi again? That would be totally badass.

      Monday (tomorrow) is a huge modding announcement that will change everything. Tuesday is the day I’ll be publishing the article. I’m really looking forward to releasing it too!

    I’m not to big into modding but that announcement sounds sweet and I look forward to read that. I definitely will be reading your article on Tuesday, I am DIEING to learn more about the game and the features that have not been announced yet.

    By the way: thanks for answering my question about character creation it was driving me MAD.

    • IdolNinja says:

      You may change your mind about modding after tomorrow. ;)

      • SuperSaint/BroFist says:

        If its as awesome as you say it is (It will be awesome) then I guess I will be using your awesome mods in the future to add to the experience of saints row 4 or whatever game this modding announcement is targeting.

        Cant wait to read it tomorrow
