Awesome. I'm not Australian, but I thought he should have an Aussie accent as well...

shivvy241117d ago

im australian , and i didnt care about the accent lol

Mr_Nuts1117d ago

Thank God

By the way Avalanche that doesn't mean getting Troy Baker to put on an Aussie accent.

I hope it's not full on Aussie though, Mel Gibson did a perfect job of finding the right balance in the films.

Anyway next thing to do is to get a Mel Gibson DLC skin out of them :D

Mel Gibson used his native Australian accent for the movie. He was born in the US but moved to Australia when he was a baby and grew up with an Aussie accent.

Mr_Nuts1117d ago

I never said he didn't

B-radical1117d ago

Yah he like grew up in aus

TheOneWhoIsTornApart1117d ago

You implied that Mel Gibson was simply acting with a toned down Aussie accent which doesnt make sense unless he wasn't Australian in the first place. Why would someone tone down there Aussie accent when the film takes place in Australia? it sounded like you thought he was American and was simply trying to impersonate an Aussie to the best of his ability and finding a balance between his American accent and an Aussie one.

I was talking more about the casting of Mel Gibson for the role

On the one hand, I'm really happy they're sticking with the legacy of Mad Max. It just feels "right," you know? I'm glad they had the decency to listen to their audience.

On the other hand... it's kind of sad that a developer can't even take liberties with a franchise (in general of course, not just in this specific case). People didn't even give this game a chance past the reveal trailer; the voice acting could have blown away people's initial expectations, but now we'll never know.

It wouldn't have blown anyone away, it would have annoyed every Mad Max fan out there. There is already too much homogenization in games and films, there are too many American accents everywhere. An American accented Mad Max is like a Chinese accented James Bond, absolutely ridiculous.
Thank god they have seen sense. (and this is coming from a 'whinging Pom' btw).

CRAIG6671117d ago

Chinese James Bond is the MAN.

Rockefellow1117d ago

Well, I certainly agree with that. I wasn't propagating the use of "American" accents in the least; I just feel badly for devs who have a specific vision for a game, yet are ceased to cancel it due to outside influence. Most of the time, that negative influence is publisher-based, of course. Perhaps citing this game was a bad example.

Very nice, as a big Mad Max fan, it's good to hear Avalanche Studios isn't stubborn enough to ignore such a loud outcry.
