Game Discussion: Saints Row IV: Re-Elected (Win 10)

A blatant lie

    This is NOT Saints Row IV: Re-Elected now available on Windows 10. This is a straight port from the Xbox 360 version. You're being sold a 6 year old game for $20. If they had ported the actual Re-elected version (with better framerate, graphics, and overall polish) the Saintified achievement wouldn't be broken either. I have filed a BBB complaint against the publisher Deep Silver for false advertisement and suggest everyone else does the same. The shoddy nature of these PC ports is disgusting.

    Wow that is disgusting from the company. You should also make a petition to get the unobtainable achievement fixed and hopefully BBB can take action about both of these issues.

    Wow, talk about the laziest port out there. Why didn't they just port the more recent version? UGLY.

    Technically it's the Steam version's achievement scripts on the Xbox One version of the game. But Yes. TangerineGamer said:It's also possible the ambiguity of the question confused the person handling the twitter for it, as they're never directly related to the development. And that very question's been asked to them regarding the PS3/360/Steam versions of the games numerous times. All we can do is wait and see.

    I have a right to be as upset as anyone here since I've already 100%'d everything else in the game except for this:

    ...but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt for a few days.

    They do all the hard work and shout out to the devs/publishers - you just need to support them.

    One of their most recent tweets is about SR - shouldn't be too hard to find.

    EDIT: Reading is hard... facepalm

    I was, at the time, a bit upset that I missed the SRIV (AU) Saintified achievement, as it meant I'd never be able to complete the series in its entirety eventually.

    I'm now considerably less upset.

    However, I don't think it's quite false advertising. On Steam, you can buy the same thing for the same price under the "Game of the Century" bundle. Keep in mind, Re-Elected was the name of the Xbox One and PS4 version for its minor on-gen upgrades and inclusion of all DLC - it was never on PC.

    This still means, however, that many morons' moronic moroning led to a mis-title and a launch with a guaranteed forever broken achievement / game function. To have a server shut down is one thing but I can't think of many instances where a game title launches with a server function already shut down. A beyond low-effort cash grab, at best, accomplished through only the finest infallible laziness.

    The only thing that comes to mind is Mass Effect 2 JP launching with DLC that never got released.
    Same as it ever was.

    False advertising might be a slight stretch, but it is definitely misleading whether it was intended to be or not.

    As you say they have basically ported the version that is available on Steam over to Windows 10, they should have just called it the Game of the Century Edition as it is on Steam, which is just there way of saying it's a GOTY version of the original game.

    Giving it the Re-elected tag line implies that it is the "next gen" remastered version that has been released previously, so they have misrepresented the product. Again, this may have been an unintentional oversight on their end, however it can also look like they did it purposely to make consumers believe it was the updated version.

    Finally, the price for the Game of the Century Edition on Steam and GOG is £14.99 and I know that the Re-Elected version for XB1 is only £15.99 but having this Win 10 version priced at £19.99 again may lead consumers to believe that it is the more updated Re-Elected version of the game.

    Well, that's still probably less malice and more stupidity/laziness. Rather than converting by region to get a comparable price as one generally does, they probably just carried over the USD 19.99 that this version costs into the same value for euros. But that one, I can't prove - I just know it happens often enough to note it as "worth considering".

    Either way, this version reeks from all sides.

    Agreed

    Also I know what you mean about the pricing, I agree it's probably not malice but it is another thing that reinforces the idea that they just threw this out with next to no consideration

    The blase response from their twitter account might ultimately play into our hands. Quite a few people fired back and showed that their customers care, which I was glad to see.

    I dropped them a support ticket. Consider doing the same.

    This is the first XBL Win10 game for me where the save progress doesn't transfer between PCs. Loaded up the game on my laptop and the game never synced after logging in and there are no game saves.
