Despite the horrible horrible lag and port job done on SR2 me and my friend had fun playing co-op every 10 mins it would work ...

And that is why I was so pissed that they did such a poor job on the port... grr had so much potential to be awesome on PC.

It runs just fine on my rig, just sayin'. It's not that it's completely unplayable on any machine, it's just that when it was released nothing could run it because it was coded poorly. So Saints Row 2... is equivalent to Crysis. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Saints Row 2 = Crysis.

I haven't been around long, but from my observations I think you're now all obligated to defend it blindly and upgrade your computers until it can run SR2 at 60 FPS.

But in all seriousness, the Powertools and Gentlemen of the Row mods are supposed to fix performance issues, so it's not like everyone can't enjoy Saints Row 2. Thankfully it's looking like none of this will be necessary with Saints Row the Third.

I understand personal opinion...
I have a hard enough time contemplating some one not liking GTA IV's story... but preferring SR2s? SR2s story was a tacked on ridiculous joke riddled with cliches and immature "satire". Sue me.

How so? I guess some things are cliche, but what in its story classifies as "immature satire"?

I enjoyed the entirety of my playthrough(s) of Saints Row 2, except for maybe a bit where the Sons of Samedi missions get stale. The other two gang storylines involve gang member deaths and the things you do to get revenge on the gangs is so incredibly badass I could hardly believe some of it. I mean, what's so cliche or immature about breaking into a nuclear power plant and stealing some waste to put in Maero's tattoo needle? Kidnapping his wife and putting her in the trunk of a car in his monster truck show? Maybe I haven't watched enough gang movies, but these things were all crazy awesome to me.

Also, another thing that Saints Row 2's story has that GTA IV's didn't show any sign of until maybe that guy who can hardly speak shows up (Jakob?), is HUMOR. One of my favorite cut-scenes ever is the one before the first Ronin mission, where Pierce has his crazy plan all ready to show Gat and you, and then you just decide to go in there and shoot the place up. Makes me laugh every time.

But as you said, personal opinion. I'd just appreciate it if you'd stop trying to make everyone who prefers SR2's story feel like they're wrong.

Then we have different definitions of humor. That's crass, "did he just do that?" humor. I loved the conversations of Roman and Vlad, as well as Roman and Niko. A lot of the humor is in the irony of the situation (as in, the characters themselves don't understand that something's funny, but the audience does). You can see the exasperation of Niko meeting some of the more ridiculous characters, especially later on in the game. GTA is funny because of the situation, not because the characters are telling each other jokes.

I beat the whole game, it's called I was mocking his character. People these days and their inability to realize anything.

I could run the game at 40fps on lowest settings with my pc that had quad core 1.8ghz and a GT 8400 gpu with 4gb ram. My current PC can run it on highest settings at 60fps, and this is all without the mods. Though I do need to download the mod that fixes game acceleration when you have a OC'd cpu.

I like cliches and satire.

I didn't find the humor in GTA funny ever.

Wait wait wait wait.... NO. Just no.

My problem with the game was not framerate. It was buggy as hell... it would crash... the co-op was unplayable because of bad netcode or whatever. It was a terrible port job. Even GTA4 was ported better.


Crysis 1 was coded just fine. It is a brilliant looking game... it OBVIOUSLY was not a port and only people who got pissed cause they couldn't max it out and know nothing about programming said it was bad code.


So... no ladies and gentlemen. No.

Hey dude I was joking, cálmate! That's why I said "In all seriousness" in the next paragraph.

But I never had problems playing online co-op with my friends and I've only crashed very rarely, and I think most of those crashes were because of mods, so I guess it just depends on the machine.
