actually he didn't talk except for when talked too so thats good at least its like every "horror" game where they scream when the player should be freaked out

and he swore like a sailor if you kept meleeing something after a long while which was hilarious

I just got this game on the STEAM summer camp sale. Played it for 98 minutes according to the STEAM tracker. He has not talked a whole lot so far. (IMO)
