People on N4G need a sense of humour, Beastly's comment gave me a good giggle.

I do think it's time to add Voice overs to Hyrule. But just not Link.

Don't start ruining Link next

Js2Kings2719d ago

To me, it wasn't her voice that ruined her, in fact she did speak before having a VA (speech bubbles). It's the things she said, along with her personality. Link, however, doesn't need VA regardless of how could it could possibly be.

@badz149. Well said. Thank you. No voices. Although I'm cool with npc's speaking up, but leave Link alone. Still reeling from Other M.

Edit: and nopunctuation's first sentence sums it up quite nicely.

nopunctuation2719d ago

Lets not have another Other M. Silent protagonists lose all their mystery when they speak. That is what makes Claude from GTA 3 so awesome. If link were to speak they would probably make him sould like an english hobbit and no one wants that.

Lol just like how we dont want to hear more than a few catchphrases from a certain heavy accent italian plumber

Well given how much heat nintendo gets for sticking to its comfort zone, I think nintendo would get bawls points for going out on a limb and trying it. Hell if they can move the franchise from 2D to 3D successfully, why not try taking another step? And imagine if they pulled it off? There'd be a parade.

I know what I'm saying is nostalgia shattering stuff, but that is what I think.

fatstarr2719d ago

other m proved it
its a no go

the only characters that should speak = starfox and pit and other nintendo characters that have already spoken.

snipes1012719d ago (Edited 2719d ago )

Well see the problem with your logic is the fact that nintendo didn't do other m, Team Ninja did. And Samus had spoken before that with speech bubbles. It was simply a case of poor scripting in Other M's case. Other M proves nothing.

Just go to Ninja Theory's wiki page ( look it over and tell me what games on there indicated they could handle scripting for any character such as Samus (here's a hint, their portfolio contains loads of ninja gaiden and dead or alive games. oh, and dead or alive xtreme beach volleyball).

No, because the fact that he can't speak is the only thing actually linking the character (link) to the user. He doesnt look like me, he isnt right handed like me, but at least I can use my imagination to make him have my voice.... Sounds lame I know, but its sorta like reading a book and then seeing the movie... Its not the same.

dragonyght2719d ago

well excuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuse me princess hahahaha sry couldn't resist ^_^

-the answer is no after what to metroid hell would freeze over if nintendo so much change a string of link hair

PSPDude792719d ago (Edited 2719d ago )

No. Just no....

Bigpappy2719d ago

Zelda has always been my fav Nintendo franchise. I say lets hear what it sounds like. creating a perfect voice for this character would be a chalenge, and I would like to hear how its creater thinks that voice sould sound. Let the game evolve people.

Rainstorm812719d ago

I agree, Id lie to hear his voice too beyond the "Yaaaa!" sword slash.

If creatively done it could enhance the series, Yes Samus was screwed over but that what happenes when you let team ninja do such a historic franchise.
