It must be a disheatening feeling being a male voice actor, sitting at a audition...and see Troy Baker sitting there. That man is literally in every game released now. Dont get me wrong, Troy is a bad Mofo, but they need some new blood in the game. What I'm saying is...Nipsy Russell's great grandson needs a job.

btw, I'm NOT Nipsy Russell's great grandson, I'm his drinking buddy "Ray-Ray's cousin.

    nostradamus when the actual gaming exploration/missions began, they are so arcaic mechanically. (1 Hour ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus Prey if freaking amazing, the whole lot of it. Just shows how much I hate and battle to like something like human revo/mankind devided. Pedios games are awful in comparison. Just can't get into them (1 Hour ago)

    Loakum @GriftGFX: trends. 2D fighters was all the rage, then 3D fighters took over, now it switched back to 2D fighters. It'll switch again. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX There are too few 3D fighters anymore but I guess the genre shifted hard to 2D a while ago. (6 Hours ago)

    Loakum @GriftGFX: heehee, actually because my team of Kilik & Sophitia are feared through the lands for their unbeatable combos. It is known. ^_^ (6 Hours ago)
