It looks fun. Does look like a game though that has been in development for so long that the animations and graphics look dated.

Animation is still weak, and I don't like the posing. He just feels too damn light :(

That bit at the end where he is squaring off with the digging mech has such underwhelming posing, it makes me sad. The animation style looks ancient and ham-fisty. Using gravity to pull enemies into his hands is a pretty weak way of not having to create specific animation too, but at least it covers the lack of it, lol.

Other than that, it looks Ok, but the rendering just doesn't live up to the upper end stuff. I'm sure it's fun, though.
As one of the major publishers, Microsoft’s games animate worse than any others. Don’t think it’s close. Nothing seems to have the proper weight or momentum to it. Hope this is something they fix next gen.

All that said, Crackdown looks better and fun. I gave up on the animations awhile ago. Still excited to play it.

I just realized Crackdown is a first party open world game for Xbox. Nothing like it out there and it's exclusive to the platform. That's pretty damn dope if you ask me. I'm still standing on an 8.0 - 8.2 rating. Can't wait to dive in for a few hours.

...when I say few I mean 93.5 hours.

No they are not exclusive and they have the same type of gameplay as Crackdown minus the destruction. Which was my point.:) So not really as big of a deal as you act that it is a exclusive.

It is to me, and it is because it has cloud destruction - and it's exclusive - which was my point.

Cloud destruction which you never mentioned.lol
Also destruction is not unique even if it is cloud based.

I downloaded Agents of Mayhem on Gamepass and deleted it pretty quickly.

I hope CD3 is much better than that game.

I tried Mayhem for a bit. I can not get into it. So far. I also just could not get into Saint Row series in general. However, I do see it's charm and can see why a lot like the series.

I bought Agents of Mayhem Day 1 for my PS4. Its not terrible, as I did finish it, but it got VERY repetitive fast and seemed to lack the charm that the old games had.

Please be good...Ryan McCaffrey during a recent Unlocked IGN Podcast said very little about a recent build he played...it was only some multiplayer though but his silence has me worried... ***fingers crossed***

That Saints Row Gat out of Hell (not sure if that's the exact name) felt very much like a crackdown kind of game with all of the big jumps and gliding etc.

So did I!! Still trying to find the article online...
Isn’t it still alive in the UK/EU? I think it was just the NA edition that got the ax.

I got a copy to the OXM article, but I’m not sure what I can post here.

Plainview or Andy what’s our policy here? Can I post pics (scans)? Or I can just grab a few pics and write up the highlights...

Just grab a few pics and write up highlights. No clue OXM still existed.
