Saints Row looks bad.. And they even say that 'i would like to invite them to my living room everyday'. Bruh, beauty of OG Saints was that I would never like to see them in a 100km radius of my house

Kind of unrelated but its a whole new day when Call of Duty shows off better parkour than Assassin's Creed Origins/Odyssey/Valhalla combined.

I have probably never seen so many faces staring at me on one page. What's with the video thumbnails, looks like the new trend is to put as many faces as they can 🤣

Can you even call that Saint Row tho, it's so out of tune and incredibly boring just watching the trailer

Someone in Volition fell on their head. And what was twisted, funny and crazy suddenly became too normal
