Nice that they got Nolan.

Nolan is one of the bests for sure.
Shepherd 214  +   928d ago
Didn't like him in the Prince of Persia 2008 remake. Voice was too enthusiastic, 80% of everything he said was some kind of quip or sarcastic remark, and North used his regular voice. I liked the lightheartedness but it was a bit overkill.

North is okay. He puts energy into his roles and stuff, but when he uses his regular voice he really isn't that great.

@Shepherd- Fact is some characters requires the actor's real voice, which is good enough for a character like Drake, I know he does the voice of Deadpool very great, from watching Hulk vs Wolverine which is more of its own, while others keep his real voice!!!

Voice part good ..But hope they do more than this..
WeskerChildReborned  +   929d ago
I'm happy to know they have Nolan cause that just might show that this game will probably be good.

What makes you think he's hard to get? He's in everything.
WeskerChildReborned  +   928d ago
Did i say that it was hard to get him?
Laxman  +   928d ago
He didnt say he was hard to get, he said it was good that they have him. Which it is.
rdgneoz3  +   928d ago
He's not hard to get, it's just that he has voiced Deadpool before.

He did voice deadpool in the Hulk Vs. Wolverine animated movie a couple of years back.
PopRocks359  +   928d ago
Lol at the one moron who disagreed with you.

He also voiced Deadpool in Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

I wish they would change it Nolan north is in everything and uses the exact same voice all the time except for when he played the penguin
RockmanII7  +   929d ago
The jokes were a tad immature for me, but I like the randomness of Deadpool and High Moon have already proved themselves with Transformers. Hopefully the more we see the game the more it grows on me.

Deadpool is supposed to be immature.
RockmanII7  +   928d ago
I don't read the comics, but from seeing Deadpool in Marvel vs Capcom 3, the Wolverine vs Hulk movie, and the Deadpool and Friends youtube channel I was hoping for more crazy random 4th wall breaking antics not "boobs boobs I shit my pants".
NukaCola  +   928d ago
What makes Deadpool so interesting is that he somehow knows the readers of his comics are there. He interacts with you. I think they could really do a good job with a unique character like him if they put effort into it. I would love a user interactive comic book game. I kind of want to see it flow like Comix Zone did on Genesis. Where the outside world is apart of the story in many ways.

They should ask Joe Kelly to write some jokes for Wade
taquito  +   929d ago
dear nolan, give it a rest, look ur voice is ok, very common sounding and not unpleasant or anything, but fu#%king-A man, every freaking game you're in you sound the same, and i keep thinking, why the hell is drake talking!

edit....whoa, ok, i didnt know he was penguin, so thats cool, i just hate when he does the drake voice in other games, it pulls me out of the game

army of two, dark void, and a few others i cannot think of he totally just sounds like drake from uncharted and it kills the immersion, not that those particular games were all that immersive

Nolan is literally in EVERYTHNG, but most of the time you can't tell its him because he's so freakin' talented and has a range far beyond his "Nathan Drake" voice.

You know he voiced the Penguin in Arkham City right?
MattyG  +   929d ago
I believe he also played a couple of the personality cores in Portal 2
Soldierone  +   929d ago

I'm a big fan of his, and his Drake voice is absolutely awesome, but even I have to admit that he does that voice in A LOT of games and it really detracts from it.....

Off the top of my head go play Uncharted, Assassins Creed, Army of Two, Dark Void, Spec Ops, and then watch this trailer too....He sounds the same. I think he changed it enough for this one, but there are areas where I'm still like 'woh its Drake talking"

Not taking any credit away from his other roles. He is capable of changing his voice, and doing it rather well, but some games he just sounds the same.
PirateThom  +   929d ago
I think part of the problem is, after Uncharted, people WANTED him to sound the same.
rezzah  +   929d ago
The voice for Drake is Nolan's original voice. That's what he sounds like in person.
Deadpool616  +   928d ago
The Nathan Drake voice is Nolan North's natural voice. It's the voice directors choice on what voice they want to hear from the actor and the actors job to fulfill the directors preference.

There has only been 2 Deadpool voice actors. John Kassir (Buster Bunny, The Crypt Keeper) and of course Nolan North. They both did a very excellent job. =)
MattyG  +   928d ago
Just found the IMDB link to it. He plays three or four cores and the defective turrets. http://m.imdb.com/title/tt1...
neoMAXMLC  +   928d ago
Why do people complain about something as trivial as this? That's like complaining that Tom Cruise looks and talks the same in all of his movies. Nolan North is a great voice actor. I bet you also wouldn't know that he was in Ratchet and Clank a Crank in Time without someone telling you.

its the internet it allows people to bitch and complain about the slightest thing because they can hide behind a keyboard and screen
Nimblest-Assassin  +   928d ago
It all depends on what the developers want... many want the Nathan Drake voice

However he can do a lot more. He was the cores in portal, penguin from arkham city, hades from GOW1, someone in rachet and clank,etc

Nolan has different voices, and I love when he is in a game

Of course they got Nolan to voice him. He already did his voice in some other game.(can't remember which)

Adexus  +   929d ago
Marvel vs Capcom 3 and he also voiced Deadpool in Hulk Vs. Which is a TV show I think, just looking through his IMDb profile now :P

But yeah, this game looks surprisingly great and comical (pun intended).

Here's a link to the first official trailer!

this is an action game, not a third person shooter...sight
Jimneous  +   928d ago
He also did Sigmund from Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time and Dr Rictofen from Call of Duty's Nazi Zombies.
AgreeFairy  +   928d ago
So basically it will be yet another mediocre superhero game by Activision, using a crappy character that was copied from Deathstroke, and it's by a voice actor who needs to stop voice acting in every game.

This will be so terrible it won't even be worth a rental.
HarryKawkReturns  +   928d ago
Are you that obtuse or are you just trying too hard?
Nimblest-Assassin  +   928d ago
You should really change your name to the disagree fairy
Baka-akaB  +   928d ago
well at least it gave birth to your crappy opinion , do rejoice !!
vallencer  +   928d ago
Oh no deadpool was a copy of deathstroke oh no!!! Apparently you don't look at the world of super heroes much because they are all pretty much a copy of each other. DC and Marvel play off of each other all the time and there isn't anything wrong with that. This game has promise especially with high moon studios behind it. Just in case you didn't know they do the GOOD transformers games.
FinaLXiii  +   928d ago
Finaly a superhero game where the guy is not all melodramatic at all and just purelly wants to kick ass and fooling around.

AHHHHHHH I'M SOOOO HAPPY!!!! It's being made by Activision.... I'M STILL MODERATELY HAPPY!!!!
vallencer  +   928d ago
Being made by High moon studios activision is just publishing it. High moon studios has the good transformers games under their belt so im excited.
shotgun_ps3  +   927d ago
Yeah but how much did the DLC for them cost, how much of an advertising budget did it get and is Activision really the type of company to get behind an IP, Deadpool, and throw money at it which hasn't been proven to succeed yet... or are they the type of company to fling out a game cause they think it might be popular... like I said I'm still moderately happy.
Sugreev2001  +   928d ago
Nolan North's perfect for Deadpool.
IIC0mPLeXII  +   928d ago
The worst part about Spec Ops was that Nolan voiced Walker. Its basically Drake, hes Drake in everything.
neoMAXMLC  +   928d ago
Yeah, he's also Drake in real life! Derp
nik666uk  +   928d ago
nothing against him but is he the only voice over artist in the industry or something
CanadianTurtle  +   928d ago
For those who didn't know, Nolan North played Deadpool in MVC3.

Nuff said. Gotta love that Nolan

I just hope this game becomes the "arkham asylum" of DeadPool games.

I wonder if videogames company know that there is other person who can do what he do.
