Nolan is one of the bests for sure.

Shepherd 2142287d ago

Didn't like him in the Prince of Persia 2008 remake. Voice was too enthusiastic, 80% of everything he said was some kind of quip or sarcastic remark, and North used his regular voice. I liked the lightheartedness but it was a bit overkill.

North is okay. He puts energy into his roles and stuff, but when he uses his regular voice he really isn't that great.

Tito082287d ago

@Shepherd- Fact is some characters requires the actor's real voice, which is good enough for a character like Drake, I know he does the voice of Deadpool very great, from watching Hulk vs Wolverine which is more of its own, while others keep his real voice!!!

Samus HD2287d ago

Voice part good ..But hope they do more than this..

WeskerChildReborned2287d ago

I'm happy to know they have Nolan cause that just might show that this game will probably be good.

PhantomTommy2287d ago

What makes you think he's hard to get? He's in everything.

WeskerChildReborned2287d ago

Did i say that it was hard to get him?

Laxman2287d ago

He didnt say he was hard to get, he said it was good that they have him. Which it is.

rdgneoz32287d ago

He's not hard to get, it's just that he has voiced Deadpool before. - 1:30 is my favorite, besides "What, babies creep me out... Rock a bye BANG!"

hulk_bash19872287d ago

He did voice deadpool in the Hulk Vs. Wolverine animated movie a couple of years back.

PopRocks3592287d ago

Lol at the one moron who disagreed with you.

He also voiced Deadpool in Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

vakarian752286d ago

I wish they would change it Nolan north is in everything and uses the exact same voice all the time except for when he played the penguin

The jokes were a tad immature for me, but I like the randomness of Deadpool and High Moon have already proved themselves with Transformers. Hopefully the more we see the game the more it grows on me.

Moncole2287d ago

Deadpool is supposed to be immature.

RockmanII72287d ago

I don't read the comics, but from seeing Deadpool in Marvel vs Capcom 3, the Wolverine vs Hulk movie, and the Deadpool and Friends youtube channel I was hoping for more crazy random 4th wall breaking antics not "boobs boobs I shit my pants".

NukaCola2287d ago (Edited 2287d ago )

What makes Deadpool so interesting is that he somehow knows the readers of his comics are there. He interacts with you. I think they could really do a good job with a unique character like him if they put effort into it. I would love a user interactive comic book game. I kind of want to see it flow like Comix Zone did on Genesis. Where the outside world is apart of the story in many ways.

baldulf2287d ago

They should ask Joe Kelly to write some jokes for Wade

taquito2287d ago (Edited 2287d ago )

dear nolan, give it a rest, look ur voice is ok, very common sounding and not unpleasant or anything, but fu#%king-A man, every freaking game you're in you sound the same, and i keep thinking, why the hell is drake talking!

edit....whoa, ok, i didnt know he was penguin, so thats cool, i just hate when he does the drake voice in other games, it pulls me out of the game

army of two, dark void, and a few others i cannot think of he totally just sounds like drake from uncharted and it kills the immersion, not that those particular games were all that immersive

devilmaydance2287d ago

Nolan is literally in EVERYTHNG, but most of the time you can't tell its him because he's so freakin' talented and has a range far beyond his "Nathan Drake" voice.

You know he voiced the Penguin in Arkham City right?

MattyG2287d ago

I believe he also played a couple of the personality cores in Portal 2

Soldierone2287d ago


I'm a big fan of his, and his Drake voice is absolutely awesome, but even I have to admit that he does that voice in A LOT of games and it really detracts from it.....

Off the top of my head go play Uncharted, Assassins Creed, Army of Two, Dark Void, Spec Ops, and then watch this trailer too....He sounds the same. I think he changed it enough for this one, but there are areas where I'm still like 'woh its Drake talking"

Not taking any credit away from his other roles. He is capable of changing his voice, and doing it rather well, but some games he just sounds the same.

PirateThom2287d ago

I think part of the problem is, after Uncharted, people WANTED him to sound the same.

rezzah2287d ago

The voice for Drake is Nolan's original voice. That's what he sounds like in person.

Deadpool6162287d ago

The Nathan Drake voice is Nolan North's natural voice. It's the voice directors choice on what voice they want to hear from the actor and the actors job to fulfill the directors preference.

There has only been 2 Deadpool voice actors. John Kassir (Buster Bunny, The Crypt Keeper) and of course Nolan North. They both did a very excellent job. =)

MattyG2287d ago

Just found the IMDB link to it. He plays three or four cores and the defective turrets.

Why do people complain about something as trivial as this? That's like complaining that Tom Cruise looks and talks the same in all of his movies. Nolan North is a great voice actor. I bet you also wouldn't know that he was in Ratchet and Clank a Crank in Time without someone telling you.

jukins2287d ago

its the internet it allows people to bitch and complain about the slightest thing because they can hide behind a keyboard and screen

Nimblest-Assassin2287d ago (Edited 2287d ago )

It all depends on what the developers want... many want the Nathan Drake voice

However he can do a lot more. He was the cores in portal, penguin from arkham city, hades from GOW1, someone in rachet and clank,etc

Nolan has different voices, and I love when he is in a game

TheMrMadzen2287d ago (Edited 2287d ago )

Of course they got Nolan to voice him. He already did his voice in some other game.(can't remember which)

Adexus2287d ago

Marvel vs Capcom 3 and he also voiced Deadpool in Hulk Vs. Which is a TV show I think, just looking through his IMDb profile now :P

But yeah, this game looks surprisingly great and comical (pun intended).
