I didn't think they would go there. But it seems we get all the VO we could dream of! Rejoice!

Badass! So that's what they've been working on so feverishly for the last month!

I sure hope this didn't affect the amount of dialogue choices. This is how it always starts.

Yep, full voice over can very easily be achieved by reducing the overall amount of lines to be voiced...

I hope this isn't the case here.

Yep. I heard this a little while ago. Until I recently played Divinity 2, I wasn't on board with full VO. Now, I can't wait!! Great job Obsidian!

 

I hope Mercer plays a lot of rolls. He's such a cool dude.

 

 

EDIT: Anyone find a new code in that tweet vid?

It's already at the point where you can have your entire party voiced by Mercer.

My dream has become realized fantasy.

Now I can finally say that I was right from my expectations in the beginning of time and development. This is due to following the suit which has set a new standard in Crpg of recent years (thanks to Divinity: Original Sim Enhances Edition).

What can we expect? 1 person doing voices for 15 characters? If talent is somewhat measirable, this could work and they might just get away with it. However, don't expect not to be able to tell that two or three characters are the same person and doing horrid impersonations. This is a given and I'm guessing this method will be used to cut recording costs, what say you?

Now, to hear my green orlan finally be able to talk vs pibsqueek noises. What an advantage to my ears! :)

Yes, Obsidian, thank you. We wanted, we asked and you gave most graciously.

Excellent news !!

 

Personnally, for me it is perfect, even if there is less text, it can be a good thing : Obsidian is obliged to go to the essentials and energize his purpose. Something that does not seem essential to me, but many people were allergic to the mass of text of their games.

 

So it is awsome in all cases.
