Saint's Row: Gat Out of Hell
needed to bump off my old blog entry and get away from politics
Gat Out of Hell is an old game. Its like 2 years old. Game plays more like Prototype than a GTA clone. That's Prototype 2. The easier, Sue-thor sequel where you play as an angry black guy who can't read, gains super powers by getting infected by a magical disease, befriends minorities, and hunts down and kills white people and at least 1 Asian. No, that's not an exaggeration or joke. Prototype 2's story is sorta.... racist. But speaking of the game, Gat out of Hell is just like it. Game is sorta easy. You quickly become so over powered its hard to die (playing on easy, of course. no difficulty setting achievements) and you have abilities at default that let you go anywhere you want quickly.
So back to Gat out of Hell. Contrary to the title, it takes place in a dystopian future. Sorta like Hell. But depending who you ask, OMG you guys it's literally the United States the moment Trump got elected or its what the planet would look like after another Clinton presidency when Satan is elected.
Game itself is ok. It frequently goes on sale for cheap. Sometimes in a bundle with SR4 over XBL.
Noteworthy is how threadbare the story and game progress is. Its possible it was just a side project. But paying leaves me wondering if game was intended to be bigger or even SR5 but it ran into development troubles when TH*Q took an enormous shit all over itself and went bankrupt. It is obviously missing the usual Saints Row flair; half finished feeling like a decision was made to salvage the game and make it suitable for sale rather than kill it.
20 hour completion for achievements.
Not a bad completion. Its a bit like a grocery store sub sandwhich. Close to crap, but edible. It takes a while to finish and the taste is nothing to care for.
game gets rating of "Meh" for not bad but didn't care for it.
