    This is a great preview (although not as good as yours idolninja). I absolutely love everything about this game and its great to hear all this form people who have actually played it. You guys are awesome, keep up the good work.

  2. Anomaly says:

    Would have been nice if you and Minimaul would have told us something, you know… new. Everything in your impressions so far was known already.

    I’m getting the feeling you’re hiding it on purpose…

    Thank you for this awesome article , but are you a black guy or a white guy im confused ? whats your fav weapon now ? and lastly is gang member customization returning ,like ninjas,gimps,h0S etc. ?

    • IdolNinja says:

      You sound confused.

      My favorite weapon is the alien abduction gun. Gang customization stuff was not in the preview, and I didn’t see any of it in LA either.

      • Mighty Kids says:

        what does the abduction gun do to the npc once thier in in the air ? do you just shut’em or do they disappear like in saints row 2 . im confused because on the other site your picture is um…white but here its black .

        • IdolNinja says:

          Well, if you get caught in it, you keep floating up the top of the world. Likely same thing happens to npcs.

          Take a hint and and quit asking me questions about my race. It’s kind of weird and intrusive, and shouldn’t matter in the slightest.

    I truly must say that saints row 4 does superman/crackdown/and the matrix better than superman/crackdown/and the matrix……impossible the developers at volition must be badass aliens from another world who make games in the name of badassery. o.O

    oh by the way thanks for answering my question about spiked up hair idolninja, its good to know its returning form saints row 1, I really missed it in SR2 and in SR: the third. I just cant see my character without spikey hair.

  5. BLAZEO1000 says:

    hey does the abduction gun work like in halo where you can control your actions while your rising into the air . For example , using it to ride up into the sky then hoping off on the top of a building , or to get away from a warden . lol mighty kids = mighty kids meal .

  6. H says:

    Just caved and Preordered – I was going to say volition should be thanking you, since I probably wouldn’t have done without all your amazing work, but with the modding help it seems that they already are :D

  7. Mecha says:

    Geez, sometimes when I check the comments there’s few alleged spoilers.

    I better stop looking here until the game is released! XD

    By the way, I think it would be cool to see some references to Red Faction since SR is going in the same universe with Ultor and now aliens in common.

    I don’t want any answers about it since I’m sure you aren’t authorised and not sadistic enough to spoil the story. I’m just writing my thoughts about it.^^

    • IdolNinja says:

      Don’t hold your breath. The Red Faction IP was auctioned off to someone else. It did not go with Volition when they were acquired by Koch Media.

  8. Mecha says:

    I know Nordic Entertainement bought Red Faction’s license.

    So Volition really can’t do anything related to Red Faction anymore?
    What a shame. ;_;

  9. Mighty Kids says:

    In some old articles i’ve see custom mayhem .Does this mean will be able to create our own mayhem then ?and do you know of any in game weapons that haven’t been leaked yet ?

    • IdolNinja says:

      Custom mayhem? No such thing exists as an activity. Sounds to me like bad wording for just making your own trouble in the open world with customized weapons.

      I can’t think of any weapon that hasn’t been leaked yet. The achievement list has some. Some of the skins are awesome as hell though. There’s a really cool robocop pistol that also tases people and a bunch of other cool stuff.

      • Mighty Kids says:

        Can you post a list of all weapons in game , or just all the ones your allowed to share with everyone please.

        • IdolNinja says:

          Someone else already has. From Matlock on somethingawful.com:
