Saints Row 4 Dev: "Bankruptcy is Scary" - Inside the Studio's Purchase & Game Design

GamersNexus: "THQ subsidiary Volition has gained global recognition for its development of the Saints Row titles, easily the most purely ridiculous games on the market. In a good way. In a discussion panel at The Escapist Expo this weekend, Volition Creative Director Steve Jaros gave insight to the studio's game design process, the distinction and initial competition between GTA and Saints Row, and the studio's bankruptcy and subsequent purchase." (Industry, PC, PS3, Saints Row 4, THQ, Volition, Inc., Xbox 360)

Plz take this series back to its roots. Thoe I feel it not gonna beat GTA that it doesnt need to if they can take back to its roots expand it abit more bring in something new it will do soo much better than 3-4. After all one thing that hooked me on first 1 specially was gangs to help you.

"bring something new"
That's exactly what they did with 3 and 4 . . .

They took the series in a different direction and they were met with just as much critical acclaim and even better sales.
They tried something different and were rewarded for it. They had a vision and it did them well. Of course there are fans of what the originals were who are going to miss the originals, but there were many more like me who just really enjoyed the other for what they were.
That said . . . I have no idea where they could take the series at this point.
