Bleszinski on Saint’s Row: “Lose the gimps and dildos” to beat GTA

By Dave Cook, Friday, 25 January 2013 12:34 GMT

Ex-Epic designer Cliff Bleszinski has had a rather spectacular spleen-venting episode over on Twitter, in response to the sale of Saint’s Row to Koch Media. Bleszinski suggests that the series could give GTA a run for its money if it loses all of the dildos and immature content it’s known for. The series of tweets is actually pretty bloody spectacular.

Over on Twitter, Bleszinski said this:

Well damn. The point about the perception of our industry based on Saint’s Row: The Third’s ‘dildo sword’ is indeed interesting, but what do you think of what Bleszinski is driving at?

Meanwhile, Bleszinski has been discussing what he might do next while vowing to not pull a ‘Curt Shilling’. We’ve covered it here.
