Agents of Mayhem

When it comes to open world shooters, my favourite franchise by far has to be Saints Row. Look, I know it’s no Grand Theft Auto, but the wackiness and humour packed into each of those games just hit all the right notes for me, and I love em for it. That, and the shooting and action itself was ridiculously satisfying in its own crazy way.

The series hit a horrible low unfortunately with Gat out of Hell, which according to Darryn, was rather meh. That was quite disappointing considering that its predecessor, Saints Row 4, was a high for the franchise, at least according to some devilishly handsome Portuguese reviewer.

The franchise had clearly run out of steam. So what was the next move for the developers, Volition? Did they go back to the drawing board, and begin work on Saints Row 5?

Sadly, no, they didn’t. They have been working on a brand new IP however, called Agents of Mayhem. It was unveiled in a brand new trailer over on IGN.

AHOY MOTHERF%&#ERS! That’s the sort of trailer I expect from Volition – some action, witty dialogue, and no form of restraint. Would you expect anything else from the people who weaponised a dildo in Saints Row?

Anyhow, details regarding gameplay and actual in-game visuals are pretty scant at the moment. All we know about Agents of Mayhem thus far (according to IGN) is that it is a single-player open-world action game. Based on the trailer, it looks like players will take control of teams of three characters, all of which will have their own unique skills and abilities.

Then again, for all we know, Agents of Shield could be Saints Row 5 dressed up in some shiny new skin. I honestly wouldn’t mind, as long as it’s better than Gat out of Hell.

      Single Player Open World? Yeah that’s not a MOBA. We’re safe.

        Thats what it says, but the trailer reminds me so much of battleborn.

            It looks like the Fleur de Lis – in purple that’s the Saints Row sigil, as it were. This looks like a future version of it.

            Ah ok. I saw it as a stylized Fleur de Lis, but since I never jammed the Saints Rows games, the rest was lost on me!

          Also, the voice actress who plays “the boss” is the same as the hispanic female voice from Saints Row. Lel.

    Heh, that looks cool.

    I didn’t like SR4 though. 3 was good, 4 was ruined by a crap port.

    Also, Agents of Shield? *cough*

      4 was fun though. I enjoyed it. It did trivialise cars completely, but was so much fun running and jumping around the place.

            You know why I enjoyed 4 more than 3? No vehicles. Just super powers.

            Yeah, that was fun

        Super powers were fun, but it was kinda easy once we got those so early, and it looked & ran like crap. Only played for a few hours, actually kinda sad because the story was funny, but yeah, I don’t need to force myself through a game.

        Prototype already had the running and jumping and all that, so Sants IV felt a bit watered down to me. I loved going ape in the cars and helicopters and planes in The Third.

          The 3rd just felt like GTA, and GTA bores the shit out of me. I also never played Prototype.

            Ah. GTA IV was moer boring. Haven’t played V yet. At stage, considering Rockstar still believes it’s worth R800, I probably never will.
            Prototype was awesome though. Pretty much all the abilities you got in Saints IV plus many more. The city was just a bit boring. Never played Prototype 2 though.

        Oh, it’s what we call it when they deliberately release a version of the game that runs poorly on PC so that the rubes are tricked into not noticing how much better theirs could actually have been.

    Saints Row The Third was better than IV, imo. IV was just more of the same with some Prototype abilities included. In the end all those abilities took away from the game because you became pretty much unstoppable by anyone.

      The best part of 4 was Vice President Keith David.

        I played both in co-op as well, but IV got tired so quickly.

          Yip, bieng so overpowered so quickly actually counted against the game in the end, and I normally hate working to get all your powerups in a game and then you get to use it once and the game is over 🙂

            Exactly. The police were pretty much useless early on in the game already.
            In Saints 3 you didn’t even dare fly over the military airspace that early in the game.
