Mass Effect: Seth Green and others

Mass Effect: Seth Green and others

Microsoft released these three big videos about Mass Effect, and more precisely about the voice overs. In the first one Seth Green is interviewed about his voice work for the game, we then get to see some outtakes of his recording session and the last one presents three more quality actors for other important characters.

WHAT!

I didn't know Lance Henriksen was doing a voice over! that is awesome!

Someone should get Kiefer Sutherland to do a voice over role for a character, he has one of the coolest voices ever

Can you guys also hear Kelsey Grammer doing the voice of Saren?

To me Saren sounds exactly like Frasier :D

you'd be hard pressed for that considering he's six feet under.

i hate that black guys voice, hated it in saints row, detest it in this, its the only voice i dont feel fits. i hope his character dies in the game cos i cant bear listening to his crappy jibba jabba.

Do you know that Keith Davids also played the role as Arbiter in Halo 2 and 3 and i think he made a pretty good job.

I love Keiths voice overs!

Sweet Videos :)

Keith Davids is the Video game voiceover king !!

Although he has been in many games, his voice always suits the characters. Great stuff, hope to see him voice a lot more games to come !!

Wow this is amazing stuff damn it!

That Lars guy is just awesome, seen him for the first time in that movie with Van Damme "Hard Target" and then the tv show "Millenium" or what it was called.

Ironic is that I saw AVP again on DVD like 2-3 days ago.

I guess some guys get very cool dark /gritty voices when they become older, I WISH my voice could be like that :D

Anyway, awesome stuff.

If BioWare says that Shepard is like Jack Bauer in space, they need Keifer Sutherland AKA Jack Bauer in this game to doa cool soldier voice over in Normandy or any soldier that can be in your group later on.

And Seth Green, well I just can't see "Joker" being a bad ass, more as a joker , but thats fine, some humor and sarcasm in the game is needed.

Lance Henriksen + Seth Green + Bioware = MAGIC !

Woo.. can't wait.

Maybe I'm just feeling grumpy but this is disappointing. They employ the same Hollywood robots who already do all the voices for every goddamn videogame. I'd swear they only hire them because they want to hang around stars.

Haven't played a Bioware game before but those few snippets of text made me cringe... some highly clumsy exposition being thrown around there. It must affect the actors as well because some of the delivery sunk to near porn movie levels.

Well, that's your opinion and it reeks of bitterness. I don't think you can make any action sci-fi dialog not sound corny. Always the pseudo-intelectual/technical talk, but that's okay.

I don't like Keith Davids though. It's mostly because he looks so evil. I don't trust him. Did Lance play the android in the Alien films btw? Thought he was pretty cool.

He sure did. The irony is that the devs have previously said Alien was a major inspiration for Mass Effect.

I felt the same way about the Capt. Anderson character as well, either the PC or Keith Davids voice wasn't fitting..and I think the problem isn't as much the voice as the fact that the PC says those words with absolutely no emotion.

This is especially evident during the "Emergency Transmission" videos, Davids voice has a lot of tension and suspense, but the on screen character is just completely expression-less and bland..it really does throw everything off..

However, as long as we don't have to deal with this character face-to-face too much I think it'll be fine..

Lance Henriksen is amazing. His work on Run like Hell was fantastic, best voice-over in a videogame that I have ever seen.
