Former Epic Games' man Cliff Bleszinski has given his two cents on developer Volition Inc and their Saints Row series. He wants them to "keep the crazy action" and mechanics, but 'grow up' a little.

The trouble with the GTA rival is that it's "immature" with its giant purple dildo bats, although it is "hilarious". Bleszinski remarks Battlefield didn't go after COD "by putting dicks on their guns."
