Voice Acting in Games
So lately there has been this upward trend in voice-acting for video games
I LOVE this, no longer are untalented hlafwits merely throwing words about
Actual Actors and Actresses (GIRLS EXSIST TOO EVEE) are voicing games
Guild Wars 2 is said to have roughly 60 feature length films worth of voice acting, and after snooping around a bit I found out that yes; it is only in one language so each language will be looking at similar numbers. throwing out the most popular MMO client languages and you have English, Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Italian, Korean, Japanese, and Chinese for a total of 540 feature films, thats roughly a fourth of all the movies made in the united states in a year including student and ivory films! @.@ THAT’S ALOT OF FUCKING TALKING
Why the sudden post about voice acting?
I totally just saw this
I’m probably one of the few people looking forward to this game on PC and with a cast like say…
-John Cleese as your trusty butler and confidant, Jasper. A fitting role to say the least
-Sir Ben Kingsley as the leader of the mountain dwellers, Sabine.
-Simon Pegg as attention-seeking soldier Benn Finn who is looking for action and most likely going to provide a good bit of comedic relief
-Michael Fassbender as the evil King Logan whom the hero/heroine will take over
-Zoë Wannamaker returns as Theresa. She did an AMAZING job in Fable II, I’m glad to see her back
-Stephen Fry returns as Reaver, the narcissistic marksman blessed with eternal youth and apparently a good actor
-Bernard Hill as Sir Walter Beck, your faithful mentor. AHHHHHHH YES This is the perfect role for the perfect actor. I Look forward to hearing this
-Nicholas Hoult as the potential male love interest, Elliot, to your female hero. Unfortunately I can’t bonk him as a guy, that would be funny.
-Naomie Harris as Page, the leader of the rebels who reside in Bowerstone. @.@ :O !!!! \(^.^)/
I’m expecting GREAT voice-acting. Here’s to hoping the massive quantity in Guild Wars 2 sees quality as well…oh wait…
yeahhhhhhh….. /smile /nod
It might not boast a huge star studded cast like Fable III (cept for maybe Felicia Day) but Guild Wars 2 has some of the best voice actors in the business
Everytime I hear Steve Blum I squee a little on the inside I absolutely love his work and rightfully so with his amazing track record which is quite huge, and we all know that size does matter.
Sexual innuendos aside, I’m really really looking forward to the voice acting of Guild Wars 2. Simply because if anyone can get innovative voice acting done right in an MMO, it’s Arenanet. EAT THAT BIOWARE
