Official Bitching Thread

Seeing as though every game gets one, I thought I'd start this. Not going to get a lot of bitching from me, as a I am a fan of the games, but from what I have seen so far, some things have bothered me.

Well, I might as well get an early start. I dislike that you can't layer your clothing anymore. I also dislike that you can't make your people as skinny or as fat as you could in 2.

Fuck you dude, This game does not need a bitching thread.
Okay maybe it does.
I do not like the new clothes system but i guess they had to change it to keep the game fresh, But i hate how they was bigging up the customization system knowing that it had been made worse.
I am worried the map is going to be a little too small and there will be less missions to do
Also i played the game a little at London expo and the controlls felt a little off, i am sure they switched some buttons around from previous games and idk maybe because i just picked up the controller and went straight into killing people with no tutorial I guess its something that might take a little while to get use to.

And that is just me picking at tiny parts of the game The clothes system was changed to give the game a new feeling, I Do not know how long the game is yet but i am sure it will have hours of mindlessly murdering innocents, and the controls are something i will get use to like on all games.

Maybe we should have a Official Praising thread?

pretty sure that is the definition of nearly every other thread... rather redundant.

I actually don't like the intro very much, the whole star wars thing seems played up and cheesy. I'm hoping most of the plot is like the first two just crazier.

Why do people keep starting these threads, are all our expectations so high that we already know we are going to be disappointed?

I second you on that one, it seems most people are expecting more out of a game, everyone needs to realise that there will probably never be a game where you can do anything you want, like get a house get married oh yeah the sims lol imagine Sims crossed with GTA/Saints/COD/Gears/Skyrim/Fifa/Forza... it'll never happen just be happy with what you get and enjoy this over the top sandbox game, i know i will be and i'm getting my copy new so i don't care about online passes (I used to buy 2nd hand games but now i don't see the point)

These threads are created to keep any and all complaints in one place. Bitching is not limited to just opinions on the story or features in the game. It could also be to report things that other people may need a heads up about (horrible gameplay mechanics, game-breaking bugs, etc.) before they purchase the game.




Even though I personally don't foresee having much to complain about, that does not change the fact that everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Nobody likes it when people come into threads just for the sake of bashing them for having an opinion (especially if they are taking the step of keeping it in the 'official' thread instead of creating a duplicate). Feel free to disagree and present your own but don't chastise them for having one.

Ha ha ha, agreed. At first I thought it was a glitch, but it seems like it is apart of the game. Quite frustrating when running away during a gunfight and a post stops you.

The only thing to bitch about is that this game isn't out yet. So close though!

THQ have sent out quite a few copies to those who pre-ordered through the site. Not saying that is where I got mine, but few peeps on the official forums are happy about the service.

Oh yeah, things like this occured frequently. With The Third, it hasn't happened an awful lot though.

Another major thing that is frustrating, is the police and how annoying they can get when in a chase.

Also, when a passenger during an activity, the AI's driving is horrendous.

Now I really wish I'd found out about that offer before the "get the game in time for launch" window on it expired.

Simply on the end of the game buy the show collectable bonus on the map and you see it all on the map!

You sure you have completed every thing on the map? i was missing one or two gang activities and had to find them first. One in the middle island, which was on a roof of a building which you have to fly up with your helicopter...

Yeah I just bought the season pass thinking that you would get every bit of DLC for the game like the shark gun and stuff like that. Pretty pissed off you don't because it's the main reason why I bought it. I'm stupid for not reading the description of the season pass don't get me wrong but still those things should be included in it other than that the game is pretty fantastic.

Well, I did create the thread that advertised this on Oct.30th. I agree that it is too bad you didn't see that thread sooner because I was kind of baffled that the only people posting their thoughts on it were total trolls that seemed to want to bash the deal just for the sake of being argumentative. It would have been nice to have some level-headed folks in the thread that actually like to get free shit.

Yeah, some of those people were downright stupid. Oh well, it's the internet, not much you can do about it.

Anyway, I have something to bitch about now!

The first time I tried to hijack a car Dukes of Hazzard style, my character ended up being ejected from the car, and ended up dying. Both random and annoying.

I had this happen while in co-op. My friend would jack the vehicle and be the driver, and I would try the quick hijack as passenger and all of a sudden it's like I'm taking damage and then I'm needing to be revived a second later. It doesn't happen if I just enter the vehicle normally. Haven't had this happen in single player, or in co-op if I end up quickly jacking a vehicle and being the driver.

I liked it but to me it seemed like a step back in the series.. i was also hoping that gat was still alive in some way...i just hated having to do all the side activities as main story missions, in a way it seemed like they could of kept more from the older saints games, taking over strongholds outside the main story. But the choice thing was a good addition but they left out alot of things that i miss...the customization,pretty much no jewelry ..theres no more food system..i hated having to try to find a place to hide in the middle of wide open street because i cant eat something real quick...no forgive and forget...and the story was way too short.

And Zimos, and the whores/contacts... Basically anyone in an activity where they need to get their ass in the car is an idiot who drools on themselves and still gets mommy to wipe their ass after they poo. This is not rocket science AI, get in the damn car and let's go!
