I always wonder how people get it into the video games voice acting career. It is so interesting to meet the person behind a character like Geralt and then find out there is such a big difference between the two. I don't know what I should expect tbh, *something amazing I guess* (said in the voice of that little kid riding the bike in Incredibles 1)

I think it is mainly how it is just about taking on small roles within film, tv, radio or anything that involves this kind of media and developing a portfolio then applying for different casting opportunities when they arise. that's what how he described it at least.

dpatrick1854d ago

I can see why he would say that

Mostafeto1854d ago

Exactly. Geralt was relatively more emotionally connected to the world around him like he said, especially Triss, Yennefer, and Siri of course.

Valve Made Left 4 Dead 2 Because The First Game Was A Broken Mess

Left 4 Dead lead Chet Faliszek describes the original Left 4 Dead game as "such a broken thing that nobody wanted to touch it."

And then couldn't be arsed to make a third game.

If they can add a lot more stuff to a 2nd game in just 1 year why didn't they make a third game a few years later with tons of stuff extra? Because that shows they could've.

I know Source 2 was kind of broken and was a reason they cancelled L4D3 but it seems wasteful to just toss it away.

Don't know what Valve were thinking.. it's like nobody wanted to fix the issues to get going. They certainly aren't the Valve of 2004 that released fun games with pretty cutting edge graphics.

Valve is allergic to number 3 it seems. It would be easier for them to release a Left 4 Dead 2.5 enhanced version instead of releasing a game with "3" slapped on its title.

Value is the Blockbuster of video games. They have no need to invest in deving a game, when they can make handfuls of cash renting them.

What are they talking about? Seemed pretty alright to me at launch it just wasn't supported the way Valve promised us

They should have just worked on a revamp / massive update to the game but they didn't they jumped straight to a sequel with brand new characters despite having some sort, if small, story about where the original survivors were heading.

I didn't care for the direction they took the sequel, the original games tone and atmosphere was missing in the second game and is still unmatched. Daytime levels, more whackiness, melee weapons where you could attack a Tank with a frying pan...just wasn't the same to be honest and the new survivors just didn't hold up the originals.

Here's my speculation. I think they did a sequel because they didn't want to update a game co-developed by Turtle Rock, they wanted the franchise to be known as a Valve game only and knew if they updated the first one Turtle Rocks name would still linger on it.

I want broken games like L4D all day long...

Well the first game was by far the best
