If I was filthy rich, I would buy Saints Row from them and completely change it

Why change it? What's wrong with it? It sells amazingly well and it's one of the most fun series of this generation. What exactly do you think needs changing?

Putting the rest of the game in instead of removing pieces to sell back like they did in 3 would be a start.
Here's a lockpick, now jog on.

I'm nervous about what will happen to Relic. As far as I can see no matter who buys them it will turn out poorly.

Wowza 3 huge developers there, EA will almost certainly look to get darksiders dev they'd fit right in under the EA brand. Vigil and violation to me will no doubt be bought up by activision allowed to finish up their most recent games and then disbanded to fill roles at other studios. because they have some talented people working at those studios but just not the right franchises

if ninty want to show that they mean business in the mature market this could be a masterstroke if they bought up a few of the studios. Virgil would be a good choice, and violition if rockstar decide to snub them of gta

Hoping Warner Bros wins, if they can do to Volition and Relic what they did with Midway/NetherRealm those teams stand a better chance of having a viable future.
It'll be game over if EA get their hands on them.
I jumped, O my brothers, and I fell hard but I did not snuff it, oh no. if I had snuffed it, I would not be here to tell what I have told.
