Nolan North and Troy Baker in same game, two of the most used male voice actors finally in one game lol

Also, Garry Schyman did very good music in Bioshock games, i wonder how he will pull this one off to do a fantasy theme music.

No, not all...unless they lack imagination to do any real combat movelist, sure they can since all they need is animation variety and not enough move inputs.

I bet it's a deflating feeling being a male voice actor, going to auditions and sees Troy Baker and Nolan North auditioning for the same role you're auditioning for.
