Stolen Pixels #72: Idle Hands

Saints Row 2 is a wide open sandbox game that lets you do all sorts of fun and stupid things. Which, oddly enough, is kind of the problem.

I have to admit, I laughed. Yeah, Saints row 2 does sort of overwhelm you with minigames from the start so that you end up finding them alittle too munidane.

Saint's Row 2 was a great game, I loved all the minigames and how they sort of took a humorous approach to it... GTA got a little too full of itself if you ask me, and the story was too preachy...

Funny comic, but you should've customized your character :P

My girl looked more like the clown from Spawn.

Well, I liked GTA 4 as well, they just have different styles, to me. GTA 4 is more serious and sacarstic. Saints Row (1 and 2) where simple and fun, but the characters in Saint's Row are too much like Frat-boy fuckwats for me to really like them.

Agreed on GTA.

On my REAL play-through I was a middle aged British dude, but I went to the magic surgeon and changed to the default guy to make him a little more universally recognizable for the comic.

Funny, now when I re-read the comic, the guys have British accents, ...ok, one did & the other had a Scottish accent.

Well, the guy I had spoke in Aussie. I think there is an option to pick a 'character' for the voices.

i know that huge long list is like nothing!!!

LOL

Anyone noticed yet that the copyright thing at the bottom still says 2008? Have you been holding back comics, Shamus?

Ah. The dangers of copy&paste.

Yeah. I should fix that.

An idle mind is the devils playground...but it only really matters if those people aren't lazy and bored.

Wait... hidden item finding? What next, sudoku?!

And that was why my character was the TF2 Sniper. That made the game so much more fun!

I had fun with this game though I don't think it was worth paying full price for. beet it in 30 hr then all I had left was the sand box and that's only entertaining with friends.

This comic is so true, but Saints Row 2 still beats the pants off GTA 4.

Great. Just Great. Now I have to go through all the trouble of putting Saints Row 2 in my console, TURNING IT ON and having fun! I hope your happy

I played GTA 4 for a while, cheated my ass off, and then had my friend pick me up in a helicopter off the tip of a construction crane. Then we bought Saints Row 2, and then several weeks went by without my knowledge... <.<
