Games inbox: Saints Row reboot disaster, new Lord of the Rings video games and Wave Race 64 resemblance

Saints are not a very good game (photo: Deep Silver).

Monday’s letter page is moronic on Segas’ new cinematic plans, as the reader wants Bungie to make Destiny 3.

General Consensus I know I shouldn’t be surprised if there were any GC previews (an ad test that only I read was able to prepare you for what it would be like if the game had been good), but I still had no idea that Saints Row’s review issues were fine. It’s been 63 years now on Metacritic and I can’t remember the last time a major game got everyone’s worst score. Normally it would be normal for a GC review to be an outlier, but that was nothing.

With budget releases, we got used to the quality and that proves that it was an illusion. I guess you could say St. Row might not have a big budget, but I still consider it a franchise. It was also when Saints Row 2, and three were around.

I feel like that’s going to change because I don’t see the game ever being a hit again now, considering both the reviews and the fact that fans didn’t like it at first. Maybe they should have used the delay to fix some issues or just make a sequel and not a reboot. Or at least sort out all the bugs. It really seemed a bit catastrophic. It’s a shame now that the quality of a GTA clone isn’t good.

Maybe the free version just saw reviews coming in for the new Saints Row and your own review 4/10 and, wow, a company that brought us Saints Row 2 and how could they be so wrong?

I would have paid full price on the first day, but once before I was burned by agents of Mayhem, one of the worst games I have ever played. I don’t make this mistake twice.

I don’t want to switch to the PS Plus library, so it’s quick, but I’m done with Saints Row now. Michael, Crawley, Crawley, Mishael, Melieu, etc.

Waiting for the verdict My name is Mohamed. I recently read the article, really articles on the lawsuit, which apparently relates to unfair competition.

There’s a quick question, I bought my PlayStation in Guildford, Surrey, just as the PlayStation 4 went to retail in 2013 and I have a free PSN subscription, and in fact I bought several UK online games in almost ten years of ownership. I currently live in Spain, but my account is in English, I am billed in British Pounds, but I am not in a country where I live. Do you think I will be eligible for anything?

GC: We are not legal experts but we think you might even claim. To have all the things, Sony is going to have to compromise and we have serious doubts that will ever happen.

New World Order To be honest, all the major publishers will be sucked in. It’s inevitable. Of the companies that could take such big steps, were talking about Tencent, Google, Amazon, Apple (unlikely) or Microsoft ask you, who would you rather be if not Microsoft?

None of these are a solution. These purchases, for the moment, cost nothing.

Microsoft is as close to the strongholds as we are, and in real time they can make those purchases.

Sony’s future pieces here are a partnership. Sony, whether they like it or not, will have to rely on subscription services.

Just in Japan For anyone playing Wave Race 64 on Nintendo Switch Online, create a Japanese account to play Rumble support, which feels a whole lot better when you’re racing through the waves.

There are also various games on the SNES and NES apps, some are unplayable if you don’t remember the fishing rod rig for the SNES is great and the Konami table tennis match is worth watching.

I think it will be impossible to bring any of these new games soon. Who the hell will remember Comix Zone, or who cares? Space Channel 5 was popular for about five minutes 20 years ago, and neither the movie nor the film is like the games. Remember, the success of Sonic and Uncharted was born at a reasonable cost. In fact, Sonic was close to being a flop before fans demanded that Ugly Sonic be dropped in favor of a more authentic look.

What else is Sega planning to do? Yakuza, Shinobi, Golden Axe, Streets of Rage, Virtua Fighter, Crazy Taxi, Stranger Beast and The Home Of Dead? Yes, that won’t happen. If you don’t know there’s an entire Yakuza movie, then who comes to watch a Golden Ax movie? It’s been 10 years since Sega started playing it. But they think people will line up for some kind of slogan?

Do you have Virtua Fighter? You can classify a fighting game but you don’t know what it’s like to go to the tournament. No mad taxi is by the way and I don’t think Altered Beasts is more complex than killing the wizard.

And finally, Sony, which apparently doesn’t want to make a sequel to Days Gone but does want to make a movie. But how did it work? The characters were the most important in all of the games, so they also feel like a bad idea. I think Hollywood should teach that games and movies are great fun and that attempts to turn them into others rarely work.

Force yourselfStasis is currently free on GOG.

I recently saw Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake in the inbox, so you can get a physical edition from Limited Run Games for PC and Switch until October 2. Andrew J. Just finished: Changing Tides (PS5)!

The Reality of Fantasy If Lord of the Rings wants to change their lives now, I wonder what that means for future games? Gollum game is on the way, the unannounced game from Take-Two and a mobile app from EA. I don’t think Gollum’s is very interested, but assuming you’re interested, and I don’t think anyone has any idea what Take-Two’s will be, I’ll assume an open-world game in the third person, at least loosely, like Shadow Of Mordor.

It’s the obvious format for a modern movie, but I hope they try something more imaginative. My opinion is that the most obvious genres of a Lord of the Rings game are role-playing games and strategy games. The game’s only modern game was a low-budget effort from EA back in the movie days, but given that modern game locations, and Dungeons & Dragons, wouldn’t exist without Tolkien, surely we could make a better effort.

In terms of strategy, EA has made effective real-time strategy games. But I’m thinking of something a little bigger, on the scale of Total War. I don’t know if anyone remembers an old Amiga game called War In Middle Earth. It wasn’t very good, but it was just a mix of strategy and role-playing, so you kept everything on the map by a hilltop wolf.

I like to see something on this scale but with a modern approach. There are so many jobs you could do with the mother of all fantasy licenses and I feel like we’ve only scratched the surface so far.

Inbox also-rans Does anyone else just want Bungie to make Destiny 3? I know they said they wouldn’t, but I don’t know why. It was that I was no longer able to play because it was too much for me to keep track of what was going on. A refresh with a new sequel would fix all that. Dagon-based medicine would solve this problem.

I forgot that Kang is the worst guy in the Marvel Super Heroes 2 movie. This game is pretty good for Lego; I played it a lot with my sister, who always said I should be Hulk.Rich.

This week’s hot topic

Open world games have been very popular for decades. But they’re not really genres themselves and can encompass everything from role-playing games to racing games. What kind of thing is your favorite, how does it taste? How intrinsic is the open universe design to your enjoyment, and how much time did you spend exploring it to stay safe and not play the main game?

What do you think of the current state of open-world games and how would you like them to evolve over the next generation, in terms of technology and design?
