Hardcore Gamer: It’s easy to think that there’s a Troy Baker overload today, but is there anybody better for Nathan's brother than Baker?

He's in everything, but the fact is that he's the best voice actor in the business today. Uncharted 4 is looking to be one of the best games of 2015 and it deserves one of the best actors.

Baker and North together, great match for sure.

-Foxtrot1232d ago

I would like to see them both in NaughtyDogs next game as the main two characters.

A James Bond style game where Troy plays the Agent and Nolan as the villain


...well something like this basically

I still think his brother ends up backstabbing him in the game. That guy just doesn't look right.

WitWolfy1232d ago

Baker and North, dude this game just jumped to another stage of EPIC preporsions!

Sashamaz1232d ago

@Lightning Mr Bubbles I really hope they don't do that, it's such a cliché constantly having that shady looking guy turnout to be the villain. Now with that said I think Drake looks a lot more shifty, his brother on the other hand has a kind and loving face I mean just look at him.

I still believe Nolan North's performance in Uncharted 2 is the best performance in video games and he is still the best.
Though he couldn't have done it without the entire cast. Especially with Steve Valentine as Harry Flynn. The chemistry of these two guys are beyond exceptional.
If Baker can pull of that kind of chemistry with North in Uncharted 4, then I'll be very happy.

"What? No witty remark? Nothing CLEVER to say?!"
— Flynn confronting Nate.

I disagree with your comment on Harry Flynn.. As soon as I heard Drake's brother speak in the gameplay trailer I breathed a sigh of relief since his voice is much better for a supporting character.

It's not that Flynn's voice actor did a bad job, it's just the caricature English accent sounds so wrong. Same with Cutter in 3. It is possible to do the Cockney 'ard man well in games - see Captain Price.
I don't like Chloe's accent either. Even though she is an Aussie she sounds so posh.

As a Brit I love hearing British accents in games but some just sound rubbish and out of place. I hope none of these characters I mentioned make an appearance - they might have to be muted!

But for me Nate and Flynn's chemistry just did the amazing job of amazing the whole game experience - so much fun. It really did even in multiplayer hearing Flynn makes the game so much fun for me. I just wished he did not die and come back to pester Drake again in Uncharted 3.

Uncharted 2 is just perfect.
I loved Chloe's voice! not much her character design because Claudia Black's voice is too sexy for that Chloe model. Her sharp English accent and voice stands out to compliment Nolan North's easy going character.

Charlie Cutter's voice almost ruined Uncharted 3 for me. I am trying to forget him. He did not fit in. Brought the game down quite a bit.

Nolan North must be thinking this guy Baker is in literally ever single game series released now.

-Foxtrot1232d ago (Edited 1232d ago )

I honestly would of preferred someone else even if they were not as known. I like Troy I just think with how many video games he's been in he could of skipped Uncharted.

Look at Cutter in Uncharted 3 played by Graham McTavish and also did Lazarevic in Uncharted 2. Great actor, just not very well known to some despite being in a handful of games and even the Hobbit most recently.

Apart from being a great actor it feels like they brought Troy in for the sake of "OMG Nolan and Troy in the same brothers". A "WTF" moment. To be honest I instantly thought of Booker when I heard him in the gameplay video.

Hopefully it's not his real brother and also doesn't take away screen time away from Sully and Elena. You know what happened when they added too many characters in Uncharted 3, other then Sully it felt like they didn't get enough screen time.

BiggerBoss1231d ago

Cutter and Lazarevic are the same VA? Interesting

"added too many characters in 3 , didnt get enough screen time"
This I disagree with. My main gripe with UC2 was that Sully was barely in it, he hardly had ANY screen time. I loved how there was so much Sully in 3, the only thing i didnt like was how halfway through the story they just dropped Chloe and Cutter with little/no explanation. I hope theres more Sully in 4, hes one of my favorite side characters in gaming

ape0071232d ago

Troy Baker is awesome

Fizzler1232d ago (Edited 1232d ago )

Edit: Nevermind.

masterfox1232d ago

my favorite characters Delsim, Drake and with Sully holy damn, add Elena & Chloe in there please!!!

WitWolfy1232d ago

Sully is ALWAYS there. Even in Golden Abyss.
