    It's pathetic how they have to brag about such things as if that's the only thing they've got going for a game. In the past there were know actors doing VO and even live action and often they were hardly noted at all. Patrick Stewart did the intro of Lands of Lore, yet Westwood didn't crap on about it non stop like Bethesda did. Fallout didn't go on about Perlman, yet Bethesda made a big deal there too.

    It did strike me as odd replaying old small production games and seeing A list actors take part in them(famous even at the time).

    It's unlikely but maybe as videogames became big business these actors started charging more for their performance making their appearance worth bragging about? Maybe with the new emphasis on marketing they've realized just how important celebrity endorsements are?

    It's not like it's just Bethesda talking about it, in mainstream forums or youtube you'd see people raving about picard being in the game, so it seems to work.

    I'm willing to bet however that celebrity voice actors are picked based on who the devs want to meet/are fans of rather than who would be best for the game/sales.

    He'll wait until the day the game is released, when everybody that buys into the HYPE will realize they just got fucked in the ass. :P

    Oh, man. Everything that comes out of Dragon Age is pure comedy gold.

    This.
    Was there any piece of VA that wasn't atrocious shit in Oblivious?

    Also, it would help if the AI didn't see fit to taunt you in a fight with a "get out of here stalker" frequency.

    Skyrim is going to sound like a rumbling stomach and a flush.

    Hello codex, my old friend
    I've come to talk with you again
    Because bethesda softly creeping
    Left its seeds while I was sleeping
    And the bloom that was planted
    In my brain still remains
    Within the sound of Skyrim

    :x

    Shouldn't we canonically turn into orcs instead, then?

    Hell, maybe we will get to persuade the emperor's agent to hand over the totem controlling the Numidium and make it stomp beth's HQ?

    Skyrim's last quest won't have a quest compass so that people can claim they've played it over 9000 hours but still haven't beat the game.

    Haha Soule you loller you. Fuck your Youtube profits. The minute I hear Soule not recycling the same fucking tune, I might give a shit. Probably not, actually, but oh well. What the fuck do profits have to do with creativity? It's been proven in study after study that creativity doesn't spawn from monetary incentives shit for cocks.

    Dont get mad, his argument does not hold water and you just feel stupid when you start to deconstruct the argument.

    Also he is using WordPress that right now IS FREE, also with the wordpress.com domain that means its being hosted FOR FREE as well ... maybe WordPress should be paying as he is creating content if we lived on his bizarre world were hosting companies have to pay the people that clog up their servers with useless data.

    You know, I was kind of making that same point. It was kind of, a "GEE hasn't that been done before, pretty much everywhere," comment. Masked in a bethesda is ripping off things. Along with a link adding to my hipster cred, by linking both a semi obscure band, and an obscure movie.
