The Gentlemen of Steelport is a public group that is dedicated to Saints Row: The Third and Saints Row 2 modding. We are always happy to help out anyone who has an interest in how modding the game(s) work.
We only have two simple rules:
1. Don't be a dick
2. No piracy
I admit, I missed the boat on Borderlands. By years. I only bought it February 2013.
But the Game of the Year Edition has it all, and was on sale, either $5 or $7.50, so I said why not?
Sandbox gameplay, few glitches, unique freedoms, and (equally entertaining) unique restrictions. Wasn't sold on the art-style, but it truly does help this game stand out. Love the approach on an FPS set "in the future" (though it's never said where or when this takes place).
Engrossing. Violent. Funny. Creative. Unendingly entertaining. Get it. Even NOT on sale, the GOTY Edition is an absolute STEAL.
I'd have paid double had I'd known what was in store for me, even though the game is a good few years old.
The concept seems to be "an MMO-style GTA," and essentially, it is.
In the beginning, when you learn what the game offers, it sounds like a truly great game, and it can be.
Keyword there is "can."
It is *EXTREMELY* difficult to get off the ground. The tutorial missions are near useless, and when you're thrust out in to the game world, expect to lose your first 10 missions. Badly. VERY badly.
If you expect to drive a car with any hope of control, prepare to be disappointed.
The time between button-press and steering-response is EXCRUCIATINGLY long.
Driving requires awareness.
Video game driving requires anticipation.
APB Reloaded driving requires the ability to PREDICT THE FUCKING FUTURE.
Maybe you won't have this problem, but I sure did. And getting around without a car is cumbersome and time-consuming (probably because they didn't plan for you to HAVE to play the game without transportation)
IIt's free. Download it. Play it.
Don't like it? No money lost.
