game narrator / chapters

Recommended Posts

*Crosses fingers* Come onnnn, Nicholas Cage! Come onnnn Nicholas Cage!

 

 

 

That would require the game to have a lot of bees. And I mean A LOT.

 

Love that there are plans for a narrator, it really adds to the atmosphere, in my opinion. Plus, anything that improves the chances of a certain actor involved with the Polish version of the game for extra nostalgic value is awesome.

We are planning to have a narrator for the game.

 

Old man! It has to be an old man!

 

He has to sound like he has a long beard, too!!

 

Not for me. Get Kelly Hu!

To that, I can only say: LaserFrog

(seriously, it's only 5 minutes long, give it a try)

 

Jokes aside: I wanted to fantasize about hiring Campbell Lane but then I checked wikipedia...

<minutes later>

...and after searching for confirmation found that:

http://www.tfw2005.com/transformers-news/other-news-20/beast-wars-voice-actor-campbell-lane-has-passed-away-179256/

(check the timestamp)

If it's true, it may turn out to be one of the more depressing coincidences I ever experienced...

Or... *awesome idea*... have more than one narrator. Have the narration being two people telling the story. Squabbling about "what really happened" etc.

 

*chapter II intro*

"The adventurers set out to find the cause of-"

"Hey, aren't you forgetting something?"

"Oh? Oh yes. The old crone. First they met the old crone."

"The old crone of the swamp. There are many stories surrounding her."

"Luckily, our adventurers dealt with her. No?"

"Well, as I remember it-"

*chapter II begins*

Whilst I don't mind the 2 narrators idea (except from a budgeting perspective), I really dislike the past-tense narration for a game I'm playing.  If it's not a flashback within the game then I want the "You awake to the realisation that last night was not a horrible dream" kind of 'it's happening now' narration.

 

(Not counting "The Bard's Tale" (newer version) which used awesome narration to comic effect).

Agreed. Past tense gives the impression of reduced agency in the goings on of the story, even if it practically makes no difference. Keep it present tense, please.

Second your agreed. This was the first of many reasons why I hated (hate is a strong word by I think it's the right one) Dragon Age 2. I tried to persevere with it because, you know, I spent money on it, but I just couldn't get into it. I'm aware that other views are available.

 

Just replaying BG2 and a narrator really adds to the immersion of the story.


There is no 'rolling', only creation.

Try and get the guy who did Bastion. That would be so awesome.

 

Only if all your ****-ups are narrated.

No sorry it has to be Bruce Campbell!  Especially since PE does have boomsticks after all!

Just get the guy from BG1. That would be awesome.

Kevin Michael Richardson, yesssss. I'd love to hear him as the narrator of the game. His voice is one of nostalgia.
