I swear, they'll change whetley's voice for a "real actor" and it's going to sound just rubbish.

No they won't, his voice is just perfect for it. Just strange enough to fit and English to boot, I mean it's Stephen Merchant comedy genius.

Oh, and. For science....you monster.

the voices in the original demo shown had alot more heart to them, and seem to click alot better. I like Steve Merchant but his timing sounds way off on whats shown here. And i like the more distorted robotic voice of the robot at the end than the clear human one they've replaced it with.

Loving the look of the game though.

First voice in the original video was an animators voice who worked at Valve and they've said they're going to be using Steven Merchant's voice in the final game.

He's works with Ricky Gervais a lot and has made appearances in a lot of his stuff like The Office, Extras...

is it PSN / XBLA?

Terrible voice casting, it just sounds so out of place and amateurish. Couldn't they at least have processed it a little so it sounded more artificial, like GladOS?

Visually too looking very dated. Valve seriously need a new engine.
