Extra Punctuation Transcript

Assuming I wasn’t overruled at some point in the editorial process the asshole clickbaity title of this video should be “Where Saints Row Went Wrong.” And in the grand clickbait asshole tradition I’m not going to provide the information teased by that title until I’ve vacillated around it for five minutes. Because first I want to establish where Saints Row went right. They had a good innings. They were doing it right for longer than most. It’s just the new one and all the poor reviews it’s getting that’s fucked things up. So allow me to provide an itemised list of what the Saints Row franchise did right.
