umm.. why? >.< I rather have real voice actors. So they don't all sound like they got their first gigs due to their connections/popularity over skill. Idc either way, I'm in for Gears for the great gameplay, not for the voice acting. Plus, it's all about Marcus and Dom! MWHAHAHAHAHA
He has been a television actor for years (Degraasi the Next Generation) before persuing a career in music.
^^^ Ohhh At first it was "Who?!" until you said Degrassi. Not very exciting, Ice-T would've been wayyyy better.
Hahahaha...right now that is the best joke of the day.
ANOTHER example of microsofts Star power flexing .... lol. Really who are these people!? First this jenny girl from another article and now this drake guy. . Huh?! First time i heard this guys name. If im meant to care it hasnt worked.
Hes a Rapper becoming well-known in the US, Epic wants this dude to do the Voice over, not MS.
lol It's ok if you don't know the person. (quite frankly I don't know who he is either. And I'm in USA). It's not like we know everybody. Heck we spend most of our time reading game related news. There's a reason why we lack info in other industries like the music one. xD Still.. dunno how this will turn out.
He is widely considered to be the next big thing in rap by some of the industrys heaviest hitters. He was discovered out if Toronto from Lil Wayne and is backed by JayZ. He was a television actor for years before persuing his music career. Being that it was on the show Degrassi the Next zgenerstion may not be the best acting pedigree at least it's experience.
I think this guy was in a Justin Bieber music video...
has a Sprite commercial.
SMH...is this real? If it is, I ain't gonna hate. Congrats...wow! He looks like a retard in that pic though, lol. Edit: Mooey, you won't find any guys that look like girls here so run along...
Kanye West will also be in the game. He will jump out of emergence holes to trap Marcus and Delta Squad to bash them how he feels about Locusts' new weapons.
hey marcus im happy for you and all and im gonna let you finish killing but the locusts have the best guns of all time
@nickjkl Lmao exactly :D...
Why Drake? They couldn't find any real voice actors?
Probably wont fit the character, but if they wanted a decent actor/rapper, there is always the great Mos Def.
man I hate this droopy face moron.
So apparently Drake is going to be doing more than just voice work they're actually going to stick that ugly face of his into the game. Here's a rendering of what his character is going to look like. http://go.butler.edu/cs/cfs...
man i dont want drake, i dont want to here his voice. i want a real voice actor hes gonna annoye me seriously ice-t would have been better
You get a bubble for the Tom Waits avatar.
No surprise that xbox don't sell that much outside NA, who is that guy?
Have you been under a freaking rock or under sony's n#@s i suspect the latter
He could be from a different country where drake is not well known... But anyways Drake? Why?
drakes a kool dude, i like his songs alot! dont know if he can be a great voice actor though...
How could Gears possibly benefit from this? Rumors of Ice T's involvement were disturbing enough. Now we have this douche. Note to epic: Hip-hop artists are not cool.
lol seems like Cliff sure seems to think so.
"Note to epic: Hip-hop artists are not cool." then who is? some unknown emo singer? or a 60 year old guitarist?
Ice T is though. He voiced Madd Dogg in GTA: San Andreas, and he did a great job.
I miss that damn game. The day Sony releases PS2 classics on the PSN, that better be one of the first. That and Vice City were so damn fun. Hell, I'd even take a HD remaster of GTA 3, Vice City, and San Andreas on one blu ray with trophies. I don't know what they did with GTA IV that I hated, but for some reason the fun factor went right out the window for me. I bought GTA IV (on PS3) and I traded it in after a couple months. I was able to play the aforementioned GTA's for years before getting remotely bored of it. I pray that the rumors of GTA V being PS3 exclusive are true, though I doubt it. I can't even imagine the things they could do with 50GB of storage. The island could be huge and there could be a LOT more side missions.
Whats next flavor flav and soulja boy do the voices of 2 spartans in halo YEEEEEEEEE BOI! Lol Ice T is doing a voice in gears 3 this has completely turned me off the game i mean isnt it bad enough he is/was on tv. What are thinking at epic like was everyone stoned and cliffy said hey lets have 2 crappy rappers do some voice acting for our game.
Yeah, man. Check it out: http://xbox360.ign.com/arti... I'd actually be all for a Kanye West character. Nothing would please me more than to shoot him into a bloody pulp during PvP matches.
i have never heard a gears fan say anything about the voice acting in gears of war games. so why are they acting like people care. gears fans want the gameplay, multiplayer and graphics
correction: gears fans want the gameplay, horde/co-op and graphics. I dont recall the MP being that great. But your right, I dont really give two-shits about the VOs. It's all about the gameplay.
But his voice is ugh for gears 3 I wish they use sean connery!!!
I think he is a better choice than some other crazy celebrity they might have picked, at least he was in a TV series acting. May not be the same as voice acting but I'm sure he will pull it off just fine. Its not like hes taking over a main characters voice so no worries. Drakes the shit though.
I have to rush right out and buy it now!!! BTW who is this guy? is he gonna rap all his parts? Is he gonna try to out cool Cole? I don't want a rap fest in Gears. And has anyone ever gone out and bought a game because of someone doing the voice work? I haven't. Honestly I don't care who voices the new characters as long as they give a good performances. If he does a good job then more power to him.
Why don't you do some research on the guy before you post and make yourself look stupid. FYI he use to be an actor on a TV show. Not saying you do care, but your making yourself look stupid. Seriously think about what you posted "I don't want a rap fest in Gears" Come on man, use your head.
I could care less who he is..get it? ;)
who is involved with gaming voices anyhow so whatever... He is a good singer, and I actually heard of him.
i wonder how many of the people complaining would object if it was some rockstar instead of drake atleast wait for him to fail before you complain
Or if it was Rockstar using Drake instead of Epic.
I do agree with you there. Who knows, he might actually be a better 'voice actor', than he was an actual 'actor'. I just hope he was given a trial run first.
cool i guess last name ever first name greatest? lol im so cool.
they should let him rap at the end of the the game, just for fun. lol that would be epic win.
who on earth is this guy
that star power behind your game is cool. but just make a good game first thats all i care about
I can only imagine whats next.
Getting an actor to voice act sounds good. Where's the problem in that?
Damn 11 disagrees maybe i must listen some hip-hop... errr no disagree all you want
I guess they though his voiced match the dude with the cornrows. I mean jason does look real young, no older than 20 so, I guess it fits. Drizzy baby! To get him I guess Epic or M$ had to "THROW A LOT OF CASH!" To the ppl who get it.
But now this guy....
so a lot of you may not know who drake is , some may not like him , i personally like him , great rapper, but dont be so quick to judge, remind you what did everyone think when they cast heath ledger as joker .....
*enters topic* *sits on the couch* *reads comments* *flips bang to the left* Gurl, most of you complaining about Drake being a voice actor, didn't even know about his acting background. You simply ruled him out because hes a hip hop artist. For the most part, none of you cared who the voice actors were for the previous Gears, so why be all upset now? Ugh, you girls kill me on this site. I bet if it was some rock artist you ladies would be ecstatic and go ape s*** *applies lipstick*
am i getting mindfucked?????
Definetly a nice grab Drake would be perfect voice actor for Gears. Be nice if more video games used voices of people we actually know then corny generic sounding voices.
DMX would be perfect for gears of war3. DMX could be cole older/younger brother. imagine DMX giving a serman before capping off on some locust... lol he has the right voice to go with cole crazy voice... Drake voice do not fix in gears3.
