Master Chief voice actor Steve Downes on Halo 4: "The words “jaw dropping” come to mind"

TheGamingLiberty.com:

"TGL caught up with veteran voice performer and altogether brilliant guy Steve Downes, the voice of Master Chief, to talk about all things Halo and Halo 4. Steve tells us about his early career, how he landed the role as brand Xbox’s most iconic super-soldier and how Halo 4 represents his best work on the greater Halo franchise to date." (Halo, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 4, Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary, Steve Downes, Xbox 360)

Imaging telling a kid you are Master Chief and then saying a few lines to prove it. That is truely rock star status.

If I were MS I would make this guy pre-record every words in the dictionary just in-case something happens to him.

With out this guys voice MC would not feel the same and I can see Halo fans having a fit if this was to happen.

Get to work MS, put this guy in a recording room and give him a dictionary.

Chief barely speaks though, they'd probably get away with changing the voice actor if they HAD to.

@Ndivhu - That is suppose to change in HALO 4...343I wants to show the human side of MC and show that he is more than just strength and armour.

343i said that MC will have more lines in Halo 4 than all the Halo games combined...can not wait for this game.

They good thing about not showing MC face is that this guy can voice MC in the Halo movie since MC wears a Helmet.

GOTY

Don't know why you got 3 disagrees for that comment. Or actually I do (this site), but Halo 4 has all the chances to be one of the biggest and best games this year so disagreeing is stupid.

He doesn't speak for the entire gaming community, that's why. Not everyone is into shooters, but Halo 4 will be a great game.
Belking  +   685d ago
We all know why I got the disagrees. Some people just hate to see great games on consoles they don't prefer.

Or perhaps people who don't drink the kool-aid feel halo is just overhyped (as always) and nothing special.

GOTY? Good luck.ACIII has that wrapped up nicely.

@TCG_Returns,

I believe one could say the same about your opinion as well.

I for one believe Halo 4 will be "MY" GOTY.

I can definitely see this game getting some Game Of The Year awards. A lot of those awards are political and its often hard for an exclusive game to win those, but Halo 4 looks and sounds amazing.

I'm expecting really high scores and really high sales. In a lot of ways, this is the first Halo game, since its really 343's first game. I hope reviewers don't slap 9.5's or 9's just because its Halo, I want it to be a great and new Halo experience on its own merits.

Xbox has the best exclusives ever

I love me some Xbox, look at my avatar for crying out loud... But I'm afraid PS3 has a much wider amount of exclusives to choose from and they are, for the most part, excellent

The voice actor for the protagonist of my favorite game franchise of all time and gets into the same kind of music I do.

This is why Steve Downes is awesome.
