@Fidelity29 @Super_Amanda Just making sure you know I replied. :P
@Fidelity29 @Super_Amanda How nice of you to copy/paste the definition of race, which I never mention. It IS bigotry, should I copy/paste the definition for you? Here you go:
"Bigotry is the state of mind of a bigot: someone who, as a result of their prejudices, treats other people with hatred, contempt, or intolerance on the basis of a person's ethnicity, religion, national origin, GENDER, sexual orientation, disability, socioeconomic status, or other characteristics."
Oooh! What's that? GENDER? Hmmm. You are a bigot based on what you've said. You may not be racist but you're sure as hell a transphobic bigot!
Good thing you don't get to define people. Since you're so into the dictionary, look up some things about trans people so you can see how wrong you really are.
And guess what, chief? The really real truth is you wouldn't know it if you've interacted with a trans person in real life, and most likely you already have many times. Just like nobody I see on a daily basis at my son's school, or at the store, or in the ladies room, knows that I am, in fact, a transwoman, just like Caro. Some of us have it harder than others, and that's messed up.
Being trans isn't a "lifechoice" because it's always there whether you switch gender or not. The only choice we have is be who we are and be happy, or conform to unknown bigots, such as yourself, expectations and never be happy.
People are free to scrutinize all they want, but be polite about it like many, many folks here are. We know people don't understand us, you're a perfect example, but that doesn't give you license to be a insensitive prick, does it?
Let's see how nice you are to me now that you know I'm trans.
You need to learn a little ability called empathy. Look that definition up yourself.
You'll still be playing as a gang leader in Saint's Row IV, because governments are no different than gangs. As the President you'll be the leader of the biggest, most destructive gang in the world, the US Federal government!
Your comment essentially calls Petit's issue a disorder! I agree with that, and feel deeply empathetic for all people suffering from problems that cause them this much pain and confusion. I welcome Petit and anyone into my home anytime in order to help them. Problem is, people think this is not a disorder; they think this is normal. That is delusional and just pushing unproven science.
sex sex sex sex ...WTFK @_@?
Why are people discussing this individual's sexual orientation or whatever? ...why does it even matter? It seems about as relevant a discussion in this forum as someone's preference for soft cheeses over hard cheeses...and besides...what the hell does it have to do with any of us?
Lets talk about video games on this video game website dedicated to video games.
@cjtopspin If Carl is Gamespots attempt at gender equality than color me offended. Gamespot needs more(real) women reviewing games because last time i checked there are none.Unless of course gamers who mutilate their bodys are a larger demographic than women gamers,
Good News , this game is labotomy friendly !
does this game still feature online co-op or even couch co-op?
That introduction made me laugh more than I thought it would.
@Kirintar yeah was a great intro.LOL
I know there will be more people hate Saints Row 4 when they play it.
This is a funny video, and I personally can't wait for SR4. Also, I'm so glad to see those hateful, prejudice comments have been deleted!
I came here to laugh and read rude comments, both have been satisfied.
@adward22 When you wake up in the morning and you realize you're still you, are you disappointed?
Is it just me or is there a JC Denton vibe to the pic for the link to this article... I've gotten that feeling every time I see that pic...
Caro is a big girl who understood the cruelty of the internet before she made her decision. The trolls of the interweb are just jealous of what she has and will most likely live in their parents basements forever. The bravery it takes for someone to not only change genders but then put themselves out there on the internet publicly on a website that is mostly viewed by guys is hard to imagine. Trolls will be trolls, delete the accounts, thats great and all but unfortunately it may not help. Props to Caro and gamespot, stick to the job and ignore the cowards.
@KingKalo I agree with most of what you've said, but I've possibly misunderstood the first part. What are you referring to with regards to her "decision", her coming out as trans, or taking a public job at Gamespot? Because either way, "cruelty on the internet" being a reality doesn't mean anyone should exclude themselves from having a job, or from being themselves or speaking up about it. And as far as banning people, well, I think it would very much help. Firstly it shows the victims that "Someone is listening". That in itself is priceless. Secondly, it sends the message that "This kind of abuse will not be tolerated, and we don't want you,or anyone like you, on our site. Tell your friends."
Sorry if I come off as rude, I appreciate your comment, and you sound like a good person.
GS needs to start perma banning anyone who says nasty things about Caro. They wouldn't tolerate racism, and they shouldn't allow the scum users to continue their bigotry.
@Super_Amanda Why do you hate freedom of speech?
@iDefinition @Super_Amanda Does not apply here. You can say whatever hateful garbage you want in your house or property or on the streets (try that here and see what happens to you) but here there are rules against certain speech, and the constitution and bill of rights do not apply. So nanny-nanny-boo-boo to you! :P
@iDefinition @Super_Amanda Freedom of speech only applies to government-sanctioned actions. It does not apply to private entities such as GameSpot.
@Super_Amanda We do when we catch it, we're currently in the process of adding on a new wave of moderators.
@Synthia @Super_Amanda Thank you, Caro deserves respect for standing for her rights and frankly GameSpot will be better without these trolls.
@Synthia @Super_Amanda I see you've cleaned it up in here! Nice work! :) Now maybe I can watch the video, lol!
^_^ saint row develpers must play their shity games first than make good games :)
@adward22 OOoooo...Tarzan! Can I play?
i bagging you Saint row is ass shit game i even didnt download it cause its shit as hell
@adward22 : Fascinating. Please...go on...
@adward22 So eloquent....
everyone run for your life this game saint ass-row 4 is shit plz dont buy it ,dont waste your money or you will regret it save your money for GTA5 if your like open world game with a plenty stuff
You're not too good at this whole english/insult/intelligence/life thing, are you? Maybe you should just not speak ever again. Or type. Don't write or type anything. Don't give your opinions about anything. Just stand/sit and listen for a few years. A brain pilgrimage. Seek a higher consciousness. Travel the world, grow a beard, come back, shave the beard, and finally open your mouth. Then put a gun in there and make your one contribution to the earth. Decomposition.
@Regression not like you are any better...
Damn you Volition, you blew it. I was really hoping the last game was some kind of spinoff, a weird dream or something, unfortunately it wasn't. smfh.
You had a really fun sandbox, you have the best customization, you had the inner/urban theme going for you simply because there's hardly any games representing this, only a tiny handful at best. You had a strong following growing, you even had Rockstar's attention, you had the support from a wide spectrum of fans....and you threw all that away for cheesy humor, big head mascot, purple dickbats, cosmic love and super natural dork boredom, wtf!!
I'm a GTA fan and thought SR2 was a really great game, I actually liked it more than GTA4. But you ditched what was working for you and just went batsh!t crazy with this title, It's an ill mockery. It's no longer fun, just chaotic and silly with no substance. You turned a very good compelling story about "The Saints" into a lame super sci-fy spoofarama that tries way to hard to be funny. I'm in awe at how super goober SR4 is looking, this is by far the most dweebish game I've ever saw.
@SpinDie25 Caro is not a thing, but a person. There is a reason your account got banned and it will probably happen to this one soon as well.
@SpinDie25 Well I'm sure a banning for your new account is not far away
wow man give me any one reason i buy this game.
Battlefield 3 Glitches
This game is so lame I want to throw up. This game will flop so hard it will make THQ proud.
I love Caro - she is hilarious!
@Trinitarian @Axon121 big surprise someone like you is bewildered that people have more to offer than their looks and sexual orientation. i think it's funny how obvious it is you have serious personality defects that hint mental issues. maybe Gamespot hire people based on their qualifications? Fucking crazy right? You actually think Gamespot and its subscribers would miss you? Do you really think you sound like a normal, well-adjusted person? My anger for you is starting to turn to pity over how utterly oblivious you are, hopefully you eventually get help or grow the hell up.
Where's Silent Bob?
@jrh1524 lol you people's crippling paranoia is hilarious.
Saints Row looks incredibly STUPID.
0:14...them is some manly hands dood
@Super_Amanda @_huh Burn.. :D
@Jedilink109 i think Gamespot has like 1 dubstep song. same one was in the Assassin's Creed dubstep video lol
@Kickable @Jedilink109 There are more than one but they all kinda blend together.
@Kickable @Jedilink109 Hey, if you don't have to pay for anything new, then why do it? :P
Well I'm sure the PC version will have a mod to change the music for it hopefully.
@Jedilink109 Yes, you could change it to the classical music gun. Or the pop music gun!
@Axon121 @Jedilink109 I would personally love the classical/opera music gun.
'it was hilarious running over people in SR3 while listening to the classic/opera station, it will be hilarious shooting them down with a women wailing or epic music playing in the background.
@jrh1524 Did I miss the part of the video that said sodomy and perversion were ok?! What is wrong with you people? My advice is to you is to log off and go play in traffic.
@ronboehme @Axon121 Everyone is entitled to an opinion. However, if it's an incredibly offensive, vile, hurtful one then you should write down said opinion on a piece of paper, scrunch it up and choke on it.
@ronboehme @Axon121 when your opinion is wild accusations and fabrications, no, you shouldn't be allowed to express your stupid ass excuse of an opinion, without being told how ridiculous you sound.
@Trinitarian @Axon121 I "choice" to watch these videos for the information provided by gamespot and wonderful journalists like Carolyn. If you want some busty model in a bikini ( what am I saying of course you do, you have a prostitute from GTA as your profile pic!) then you have entered the wrong web address in your search bar. Good day
Does anyone REALLY think that SR 4 will be a better game than GTA 5? And for those pretentious douchebag types, being a better game comes down to overall critic and fan rating, and the bottom line of sales.
@MeestaPleasta hah.....for a moment there I thought you were talking about the Normandy in Mass Effect 5. ;-) (SR4.....)
@MeestaPleasta Games is a matter of taste. What somebody like might not be what everybody likes. I prefer more arcade style of games, so Saints Row is more fun for me than GTA. Plus it got a full Co-op campaign. EVERYTHING is better in co-op. Unless you have no friends, in that case, I see why you already think GTA might be a better game.
@MeestaPleasta I can easily see it being a "more fun" game than GTA5, just as SR3 was more fun to me than GTA4. Does that make it a better game? In that case, no, not IMO. Technically GTA4 was a MUCH better game than SR3 was, but if you ask me which game I had more fun with, its not even close...SR3 won that fight.
Now will that be the case with GTAV and SR4? Who knows. I'll have to wait and see when they come out and I've gotten and played both of them. And just for the record, it IS OK to love both series. I do.
@kungfuj0 @MeestaPleasta GTA 5 FTW.
GTA 5 is just perfection IMO
@kungfuj0 @Andrew1990R @MeestaPleasta IMO you could have been a gamer since 1918,so what? My point is that everything has a beginning.Maybe not perfection but GTA 5 will be close to it anyways (and that excludes some possible bugs and I'm talking about gameplay,story and free roam
@Andrew1990R @kungfuj0 @MeestaPleasta Hard to make that kind of a statement about perfection when neither game has been released yet. Besides, I've been gaming for 30 years now, and I can't say that I've EVER seen a 'perfect' game. I am not expecting one in either of these.
@MeestaPleasta what's more pretentious than deciding this before either are released? not much.
@Trinitarian @Axon121 Don't let the door hit you on the way out. We don't need or want you here.
@Trinitarian Oh sorry, are you on the cover of 'Men's Health' this week? Why don't you post us all a pic of yourself and we can all tear away at your self esteem like pissy little d1ckbags. If you have nothing nice to say, keep your mouth shut.
@Trinitarian You're pretty mean dude. That said though, it does make the game videos distracting and hard to watch.
GTA5 is badass great game
So they've removed the gang aspects like taking over territory and replaced it all with over the top sci-fi action scenes.
Thanks for ruining the game for it's fans.
GTA V will be 100 times better anyway so I'll wait til SR makes a game I want again.
@mkeezay22 I hate to admit it but SR got raped.
At least GTA 5 will be a normal game in a CRAZY world. Just look at the statistics.I mean so many games just went off track and as a matter of fact SR games did the same and I honestly say that the only good thing about SR4 is Johnny Gat returning kicking ass.
I really miss all the gang banging elements in Saints Row but we must move on...
Maybe GTA5 will have some gang-banging and territory capturing while playing with Franklin cuz he's a member of Grove Street just like CJ was.
@mkeezay22 yeah! Thanks for ruining the game for...umm...this mkeezay22 guy! and apparently me...a fan...cause he speaks for all of us!
Carolyn is a gamer, so that makes her an awesome person, no matter the gender. Also, game looks awesome!
@uberjannie The guy who shot up the theater in Colorado was a gamer too. That doesn't make him an awesome person.
@_huh Um, I live in Colorado and never did I hear them say on the local news that the guy was a gamer, if he was they would have had a field day with it, and help the ''games promote evil'' agenda the government is still trying to push.
@briancarnell I think you're the one confused, and merging the Connecticut shooter with the Colorado shooter; who was older than the Connecticut shooter, who was 20, HE had all the game posters and games laying around, that's what help re-fuel the 'games induce violence' war. The Colorado/Aurora shooter never had game stuff and they did go into detail of what they found in his apartment, after disarming the bombs he laid, looking for clues. Never once did games come up. So I DO pay attention, and I don't appreciate the imply that I go through life drooling and cross eyed.
@BloodyAura @_huh you weren't paying much attention, then. Among other things seized from Holmes' apartment were copies of Starcraft, Skyrim and Oblivion...police also seized a Skyrim poster he apparently had in one of his rooms.
I wish the USA were more like Russia :(
@jrh1524 Last I checked you're free to move there.
@jrh1524 What the hell man? Seriously?
which u wanna USA to be cold snowy enviroment or Communist solider marine ??...........^_^
@adward22 anything thing is better than that piece of shit goverment fucking cancer of the world, american ignorant fucks still think usa is the best place to live lol ridiculous
@adward22 cold, snowy environment? Wait......Skyrim??
@adward22 He was referring to the he gays hating environment. I almost spit out my drink when I read his comment. HAH
Seriously, I am dead sick of people highlighting the fact that Carolyn Petit is a transgender - as if it were a problem! Really, what does it have with anything to do? If you spend your time watching the actual video in here - instead of speading your cancerous bullshit in the comment section, you would know she is doing one hell of a job here at GameSpot (which is what damn matters!!).
@RevengeNegative Those making a big deal out of it are small minded and immature, probably complaining cause they can't sexually harass her like they do the other female GS employees.
@RevengeNegative Carolyn is just a weird guy. He has a totally squared jaw and obvious big man hands. It's just an all around weird thing to see. Especially when this very manly looking man is trying to use this very feminine voice. It's weird. It's weird to me like those people who try to be real life superheroes. It's both sad and weird.
@_huh @RevengeNegative What's sad is that there are still people in the world like you. Do you feel like your body is wrong, so strongly that sometimes you wish you were dead? Do you worry that if you try to be yourself someone will make ugly comments about you, or worse? How would you feel if this was your life? Try to have some empathy ffs...
@RevengeNegative It is a problem for some people. Quit acting like it isnt. I'm not one of "those" people when when I want to watch a videogame video on the internet I don't need to be force fed someone's sexuality.
@FreddieBootleg @RevengeNegative It's not A problem, it's THEIR (users) problem. And by simply existing one is not "force" feeding anything to you since you clicked on this with your own free will.
@FreddieBootleg @RevengeNegative Force fed? By seeing her? I don't think she did anything remotely close to sexual in the video. Relax
smug go home and suck it
Hey @RevengeNegative , Carolyn is a woman in a guy's body!
The last guy asked a question on Flickr?? Didn't know GameSpot had Flickr.
djames - It's a guy pretending to be a girl.
Instead of encouraging him to be ashamed of who he really is (a guy) they should be helping him get over his fantasy that he's a girl.
That's what real friends would do.
@Born_Lucky You are totally clueless on what you speak. You are totally wrong about Caro. Caro is a woman, she's not "pretending" anything. It has nothing to do with shame, and true friends will support you no matter who you are. You are obviously a child, so I'll cut you some slack and just say Google is your friend. Use it and maybe you won't sound like an ignorant redneck next time you open your mouth.
@Super_Amanda @Born_Lucky LOL people are so funny, they call another childish and immature for attacking another person, yet they are doing the exact same thing. People by nature are incredibly judgmental and are quick to criticize or reject anything that goes against what they believe in or are comfortable with. Look, disagreeing and hating transgenders does not make a person ignorant or immature, people are simply a direct product of the environment and influences they were exposed to during their life. (Mostly the early stages) Just like you learned and were probably raised to loathe and disagree with those who are unaccepting and closed-minded. Look, in the end, the way you are acting, just shows you are no different from who you are attacking. From my perspective you're both the same and equally as foolish and ignorant. lolol Dicks will always exist, they probably just want attention and you're giving them just that.
Who in the hell picked THOSE questions??? Most of that stuff is answered in pretty much any preview video that has been shown for this game.
What *I* want to know is are they using activities as full missions again this time? Does the character customization system give you as many options as SR2's did in terms of layering clothing and whatnot? Can I be a ho in a dirty gas station bathroom again if I choose to? Did they bring back the old activities like all the racing and the fighting stuff and whatnot? Basically did they fix some of the shortcomings that SR3 had. Obviously they kept the over-the-top stuff and went even farther with it (for better or worse...), but SR3 still had some holes in it whether you liked the uber-over-the-top stuff or not. I want to know if those holes have been fixed before I plunk down my hard-earned money for this game.
@djames12345 Human , you got any problem with that?
@Gamesfetch @djames12345 You sure?
@gxgxgf @Andrew1990R @Gamesfetch @djames12345 ffs you are disgusting
@gxgxgf @Andrew1990R @Gamesfetch @djames12345
If you think he's hot, maybe you should try and hook up with him? I'll bet he's looking.
@Gamesfetch @djames12345 yeah, people do when things get made more complicated than they should be
@djames12345 You asked a simple question but they way you asked is not good
@Gamesfetch @djames12345 Well all i asked was a simple question you got a problem you can go fuck yourself:)
Carolyn is back :)
