    • NOT a saints row game but has influences
      • AoM is a universe where the Saints (the organization, not the people) NEVER existed
        • “some of the fun is, where did [the saints] end up? how do they function in this new world?”
          • Genki ended up on public-access television
      • in AoM, Retcon ending in GoH is canon, but it’s still only 1 of 5 endings
        • “SR1-SR4 and GoH still exist, this is just one branch of the tree”
          • “think of it as a ‘What If’ ending”
          • “will be talking about the connections to the other games at a later date”
          • called the “Saints Multiverse”
    • Not really a “good vs evil” situation, only goal is to stop “LEGION”
      • Doctor Babylon is the head of “Ministry of Pride,” focuses on using Dark Matter
      • Babylon is not the only villain in the game, and is probably the most “tame”
        • Babylon is a monologuer
    • single-player, open world
      • NO co-op
      • NOT a hero shooter, nothing like Overwatch
      • game is Third-Person
    • in-game graphics are “close” to the trailer
    • brand new game engine!
      • been in development since SR4 ended
    • game is Very Much a comedy game
      • NO MEMES
    • the game’s city is idolninja-approved™
      • “a lot of the areas of the city are very varied, like all the different zones in Stilwater in SR2″
    • the dev’s favorite agents have NOT been shown yet
      • faves are ‘Daisy’ ‘Scheherazade’ ‘Kingpin’ and ‘Jewel’
        • “Daisy is almost as awesome as the voice actor who portrays her”
        • all the devs love Daisy
    • gay characters confirmed!!
    • Malcolm Kirby Jr is back for the music (in the trailer, at least, no word on the rest of the game’s music)
    • possible collector’s edition?
    • Agents are meant to have a Global feel, from lots of different countries
      • Fortune is from Brazil
      • Hardtack and Hollywood are both American
        • Hardtack is from Virginia, Hollywood is “secretly Canadian”
      • Persephone Brimstone is French
    • Ultor funds Mayhem, puts money in the war against Legion
    • First gameplay at E3 on Tuesday!
      • “by the end of June, you will know a Lot about the game”

  3. Is there is going to be any homies? Because it's torture to fight Satan and those CONSTANTLY attacking demons without any kind of proper homies in Gat Out of Hell where they're completely absent. PLEASE Volition make them appear again in this game! Also, if can be there Super Homies like SRIV, since appear there might be also powers like SR IV / SR GooH along with normal weapons, as I've saw from one of the screenshots from Agents of Mayhem that displays something similar to the Lightning form of the Buff power from SRIV. Although the news about map seems promising. ;)

  4. it should be mentioned that towards the end, somebody in chat asks about a day/night cycle, and while they don't answer it officially, Idol appears to confirm that it exists under his breath

    I thought I heard them say that the new engine has dynamic global illumination (which is typically used for day/night cycles).
