Yup, Saints Row: The Third has a ‘Whored Mode’
On top of the main storyline and co-op play in Saints Row: The Third comes a third game mode called “Whored Mode.” Yes, you read that right. Whored Mode shares the same basic concept as any other Horde mode where you and a buddy will go up against wave-after-wave of enemies.
Each wave is very specific and unique from the last, with the first wave seeing you facing off against, what else, dozens of whores. Don’t worry, it’s not just whores you’ll be fighting against.
Once each wave is taken out, you’re taken to a stat page that shows your progress and gives you a few seconds to rest before the next wave. You’re then placed into the map again and wave two sees you fighting question marks. No, I mean, like actually questions marks that are floating in the air. And they’re wielding machine guns. Yeah.
Wave three sees you in a tank taking on a bunch of naked Brutes. Wave four has you using the giant purple dildo against a bunch of gimps that are also using giant purple dildos. Wave five has you up against angels with sniper rifles.
It basically just gets weirder and weirder. Later waves saw me up against whores on rollerblades, giant and mini soda can mascots, zombies, giant hoes and so on. Each wave also had me using a different weapon or vehicle to take on the waves.
If your partner is taken down in a wave, you have about 30 seconds to go and rescue them by picking them back up. If both players die, you’ll simply restart the wave. It was a nice surprise as I was expecting I’d have to start all the way from the first wave like any other Horde based game.
So yeah, that’s basically Saints Row: The Third’s Whored Mode. Videogames sure are great, aren’t they?
