Saints Row: The Nightmare Chorus

By Alec Meer on December 15th, 2009 at 1:49 am.

By way of beautiful/monstrous coda to today’s (well, yesterday’s. I’m up toooooooooo late) Advent Calendar entry, please enjoy this taste of the Saints Row 2 videogame’s singular madness.

Occasionally, your self-designed character will sing along to what’s playing on the in-game radio. That can be strangled enough by itself, but this… This is what it sounds like when doves die. Or, more accurately, when all six possible main character voices’ howling, babbling versions of A-Ha’s Take On Me are composited together into a freakish but highly chucklesome chorus of mangled Scandinavian pop. Don’t have nightmares.

As shared in comments by comrade Larington. Tharington.

And, because it never gets old, here’s how it should have sounded…

Now to bed I go, before my housemate wakes up and inquires as to why I’m loudly playing A-Ha at 2 o’clock in the morning.

    For me Saints Row 2 on PC has always run fine, though the driving is still unsatisfying. Still, it’s better than GTA4. And the game gets incredibly easy after you unlock infinite ammo for any weapon type. It’s not hard, just finish level 6 of certain side missions.
