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.

    droezelke First test done with the Switch using Zelda. They could play for 2h 28 minutes on full battery. (7 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker constantly too. Man if only that pro controller had a 3.5mm output. Do they finally have that for Switch pro conrrller? (49 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker It should be a nomal 3.5mm output on my TV yeah. But what b0vril says could be true, sound may not be as clean. So i'll probably go with the hassle. Will be needing to keep the gamepad in the charger (53 minutes ago)

    Ian_Nottingham I've been looking for a great movie that's engaging from start to finish.Don't know which one you folks listed to start with though. (54 minutes ago)
  • asdfg
    asdfg @Moonwalker: Isn't it just a regualr 3,5mm output? Those extension cables are very affordable. If you have usb or optical output then it's another matter. (1 Hour ago)
