They better put Shaundi back in character again. Her saints row 3 incarnation was pretty bad. She was nothing but bitchy angry and annoying as if she was high on hormones or something. I mean, she was the most angry over Gat's "death" despite her hardly ever interacting him in both games, did she have like some random crush on him? I liked her in SR2 for a reason. She was mellow, witty and her ex-boyfriend gags were hilarious. I'm all for a sexy make over but not at the cost of her personality. Thank-God, Pierce was still in form. Her design in sR3 wasn't even that good, it wasn't bad but terribly generic.

I hope Volition goes with the "happy ending" from SR3 for the next Saints Row.


Remember developers... remember... the reaction to the ending to Mass Effect 3. People get emotionally attached to characters. But I don't think anyone could screw up a franchise like Bioware did.

During the events of SR:TT, Shaundie never really got a chance to move on after Johnny's death. Seeing the Syndicate all over steelport fueled her anger and rage as she wanted to avenge Johnny. In SR4, I hope that Shaundie moves on and finds some peace. It seemed she was more attached to Johnny than just a friend. Perhaps Johnny was about the only guy who didn't want to sleep with Shaundie (because he was with Aisha) and their friendship was not based on sex.

I liked Shaundi in SR2 better as well, she wasnt so frickin aggressive. But she wasnt too bad, just a little too... lets get this out in the open, we all know they are trying to sell sex with Shaundi. But the thing is, its shauuuundii. Shes a home girl, not the gang @#%*.


Here, add this word to you vocabulary: www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=...


Shaundi is (or was in SR2) the definition of a home girl. And every gangster needs a good homegirl. But then again, the series seemed to diverge from actual gangster, and more towards rich/hollywood... stuff... soooo maybe shes fitting for the new saints


But yeah, I dont think they killed her off, cause her death wasn't dramaticized.


You know who was REALLY bad in SR3? Pierce. The most annoying man %*?@$ in existance. If anyone should be killed off, it should be him


Who else? That nerd hacker girl. Why did they have to make her annoying as ****. Seriously, they coulda made her a cute happy weeabo at least haha

The entire reaction put shaundi all out of character. this sounds more like how Pierce or the protagonist would act. About your theory, nobody on the saints thought of Shaundi in a sexual way since her debut. Her and Gat never actually interacted directly within character development from what remember.

Erm... Excuse me, what? Pierce acted the same as he did in the last game, except a bit older and wiser. Kinzie is actually my favourite character after Gat, she was not annoying at all. I honestly don't know what you're trying to expect from this game's diverse cast. (and if she was a weeabo I'm sure as hell you'd rant about her for that too regardless. Not to mention she'd still act the same personality wise. If anyone should be killed off, its the wrestling guy. He is useless, he's a Goon with villain status? WTF?)

Pierce has improved his tactical thinking (as represented by the chessboard matches, though he should have stayed away from chess until the gangs and Stag were out of the way.  It was distracting him) and his singing.  His singing is MUCH improved.  Yet for someone who "just signed up to shoot up gangbangers", when the going gets tough, Pierce gets wimpy.  The first to fall in a fight, the first to whine about going with someone else's plan or the apparent toughness of the opposition, he, as a "gangster", is a poor excuse.  Kenzie? Let's talk about Kenzie.  She speaks almost strictly in tech language that only Oleg would understand.  As the MC said once "Ok, Kenzie, what am I getting again and for ****'s sake, keep it simple."  Angel?  He says (along with Viola) that humiliating him would be worse than killing him.  Yet when Killbane tries to escape Steelport, Angel wants him dead.  Honestly, his gang's in ruins, he was humiliated on national TV, and there's no one left to help or bail him out.


I think most people on here like Viola because she was a Saint version of her ex-porn self, Sasha Grey.  Her attitude could easily get her killed.  "This better not be a waste of my time" she'd say if you call her up.  She's equally negative in story missions.


Shaundi?  I really expected the MC to react like she did.  Yet the MC isn't choked up, and she wants to kill EVERYONE (that would definately make Gat proud.)  I think she should cool down again, as Gat's death has been avenged.  I still hope they find a way to kill Gat though, they've really shot themselves in the foot with that one, and how did they expect us to react?


Zimos: A fresh take on the normal "pimps" seen in Stilwater, even though some complained about his voice.


Oleg: One large man that can think as well as deal major damage is good.  Having tons of dumb "shock troop" Brutes?  Bad.

Oops, meant "save Gat".  I must have been on autopilot.

I hope they keep Shaundi.  Personally I like all the members of the Saints (With the exception of Angel) and hope they drop the whole killing them off thing. Losing an awesome gang member for a lame ass zombie is not a good thing.


The problem is SR2 Shaundi was fun but not badass and SR3 Shaundi was badass but no fun. If they can make a perfect blend of the two it'll be great.
