Agents of Mayhem (Volition; 8/15/17; XB1/PS4/PC)



Single player. Open world. I guess we're getting this instead of Saints Row 5, but that's probably for the best. IGN is going to be writing about it all month.

Gameplay with dev commentary. Gotta skip to around 21 minutes in to actually get to the gameplay bits, tho'.

Looks like Crackdown crossed with Overwatch.

For a game coming out in two weeks, there doesn't seem to be a lot of hype around this one.

Yeah. It's not even as if there's a big marketing push that's just not getting any traction. Hardly anyone really seems to be talking about it, positive or negative. Most of the hands-on previews from around E3 were fairly enthusiastic, and the developer streams make it look far more fun than any of the official teasers/character reveals, not that any of that seems to getting much headway.

I'm a Saints Row fanatic and will have my copy on day one, but I am expecting this to pull a Dead Rising 4 where it so immediately, spectacularly craters that it'll be close to half-off within a few weeks.

I think the issue is that everyone wants Saints Row 5 from this developer, not a new IP.

My issue is I actually enjoyed the older Saint Rows game more when they were only a little silly at times. The games have gone off the deep end, and they are still enjoyable, but only when played in coop for me, which this game does not have. Also, their mission structure has shifted toward making you do side quest to unlock main quest, and it gets really boring at time...

I will wait on this one...

Seems to be getting mixed reviews. 67 on Metacritic. 80 from Game Informer and 4/10 from Gamespot.

Re: Agents of Mayhem (Volition; 8/15/17; XB1/PS4/PC)

I'm waiting for the price dip. As much as I love Saints Row:

1. This isn't Saints Row

2. One of my favorite things about Saints Row is character customization, which is totally absent from this game. I disliked Gat out of Hell for the same reason (well that and the fact that there is hardly any story missions, and they pad the length of the game by forcing you to do all the activities).
