Saint's Row IP Acquisition

#1 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (5228 posts) -

I command the powers that be to still bring forth "The Next Great Sequel in the Saints Row Franchise!!!!!!!!!"

(Transition)

Executive head at perfect company for Saints Row." What's this? I feel something coming over me." Assistant, " What's wrong boss?" The Executive mumbled to himself, "Saint's Flow, Burt Reynolds, Giant purple unmentionables." Assistant," Have you been drinking again?" At that exact moment the executive jumped on the table and began a show tune gradually working his way around the building convincing everyone to buy the Saints row IP through song. Fifteen minutes later the entire building had made their way to the main lobby through the natural progression of the song. Finally, the song had ended and silence protruded throughout the building for a moment. Almost as if it had been staged, a phone rang at reception. Receptionist, "Boss! We just got word that someone is on their way to buy the Saints Row Franchise!" The boss looked at the one of the interns and said with a determined face." You, what's you're name?" Intern," Johnny, Johnny 5." Executive," Johnny, You've got to get their before it's too late. You're our only chance." Assistant Johnny 5," All right boss, after all I am a S.A.I.N.T." At that moment Johnny burst through the doors. He was on his way to become a hero.

This is a visual approximation of Johnny's heroic climax.

What would be you're ideal publisher and/or developer to acquire The Saint's Row IP?

I want Nintendo to buy it and just turn it into a cutesy 3D platformer with Genki as the main character

This was the only song I listened to in SR3.

I never knew Jonny 5 was a SAINT. Oh man.

Kojima is Old Snake. He can't make anything but Metal Gear games. Someday he'll shoot himself in the damn head and end the cycle.

It's all mini-games! Up to four players can play and the 5th will fuck you all up with the pad! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!! - Actually the four player part would be interesting at least.

I hate to say it but honestly.... probably Rockstar. They make great open world games and this one is different enough from GTA that they can keep both and let this one remain the silly insane thing it is while they continue to do their serious crime drama stuff with GTA.

Forget Kojima, Suda 51 is probably the right answer. Give that man some decent resources and the reigns of Volition, and he will do magic.

Also: Great Introduction, TC...

I don't know who should make the game, but I do know who should be in the game.

It seems to be decided; it's gone to Koch Media, owners of Deep Silver, makers of Dead Island. Yes, Koch is bigger than Deep Silver.

There were no jokes about the guys who put out a game with a big ol' torso putting out a game with a big ol' dildo in this thread, so I'm not giving any of you psychic points for getting it right. Still, I wish most of you had been right.

Saints Row: Big Ass Dildo Special Edition coming soon.

Seriously? Why am I not surprised that a series like Saints Row gets handed off to Koch media. That is if I'm pronouncing that right of course :P.

@Yummylee: If Patrick said it right on yesterday's 'cast, you said it right today. ;)

I hadn't listened to the bombcast when I made this thread. Oh well, it was fun to dream.

Do you like watching games or playing them?

I don't know how I feel about the company that made the sort-of-fun-but-seriously-janky Dead Island picking up Volition. If they're kept entirely indepdendant and Koch is literally just buying up a whole development house to keep making awesome stuff, then that's fantastic. I don't want to see them just become a slave to the existing development, though. Or worse -- to use Volition as a "pump out the shit for the shitty IP contracts we get" and turn them into the company known for making shitty DS shovelware or something.

Also, if Koch has anything to do with the Koch Brothers, then that would suck, too .. . . but I don't think they do.
