Opposites Attract In Saints Row IV Singalong
August 30, 2013
One of the fun traditions in Volition's Saints Row series involves the eventual singalong session that turns up at some point during each of the latter three games. The player character loves to burst into song when appropriately moved; in Saints Row 2, for instance, A-ha's timeless anthem "Take On Me" inspired an impromptu karaoke moment. Saints Row: The Third featured the boss and fellow Saints gang member Pierce crooning Sublime's "What I Got", and it's only right for Saints Row IV to continue the practice. The boss and Pierce team up again to belt out the 1989 Paula Abdul hit "Opposites Attract", but since there are seven unique voices (four male, three female) that players can choose for the boss, there's a special version of the singalong made possible by combining all of the voice tracks. For fictional characters, these folks sound like they're having a lot of fun. It really goes to show how important talented actors are to the experience. In lesser hands this kind of moment wouldn't work at all, but in this instance it's a wonderful bit and a true high point of the game.
