[Let's Play] Saints Row 2 - Videos gone, nothing to see here.
Saints Row 2 (abbreviated to SR2) is a sandbox-style action-adventure video game developed by Volition, Inc. and published by THQ. It is the second title in the Saints Row series. The game follows the unnamed protagonist — referred to as male in this article — who leads a fictional street gang known as the 3rd Street Saints, to whom he followed in Saints Row until he was betrayed and landed in a trauma-induced coma after a staged yacht explosion. After escaping from prison five years later and bringing the Saints to power again, the protagonist takes on the gangs who now control the city Stilwater on a quest to bring it to the Saints' power, who had controlled it in Saints Row. The game is composed of elements from third-person shooters and driving games in open world gameplay. The main game can be played through in single-player or through online co-operative play. The game also contains competitive multiplayer modes.
It's like GTA, that's really all you need to know.
In this LP I will do my best to display as much of the game as possible. Missions, activities, whatever. Given that 100% completion requires picking up a lot of stupid hidden items and other monotonous things, hence "as much as possible." Some activities I may skip if I think they're not interesting to watch and/or if I hate them (like Snatch, Escort and Crowd Control. Exceptions might be made with co-op guests.)
I'll be playing single player, though seeing that co-op is possible at pretty much any time, I may take on a guest every so often if I need help with certain activities or I feel my voice alone is probably getting tiring.
Despite my better judgment, I will allow people to post suggestions on what the character will look and sound like. Later on you'll be able to suggest different outfits as well. The main character is seen in pretty much every cutscene, so that alone could be as cool or silly as you'd like.
This is the PC port of the game, which has some issues. Personally I haven't had much trouble with it, but there are some more obvious problems. Driving with a keyboard kind of sucks for one thing, but I'm pretty used to it by now.
My suggestion is to watch the videos on my channel or youtube itself for higher viewing quality. Oh and, yes, I'm entirely aware of the various audio issues. I always try to fix them as soon as I can. I could apologize for my boring voice, too, but that's something that I can't really fix. So that you're just going to have to deal with.
Deleted this due to personal dissatisfaction with the majority of the LP in terms of technical and entertainment quality. My apologies, but perhaps it will be attempted again with a permanent co-op guest in the future to keep things interesting.
