Sharpshooter Meet-N-Greet

edited February 2013 in Dev Journal
Hey guys! I thought I'd make up this little video detailing some of the thoughts and memories I have about doing the voice of the Sharpshooter for the game. I enjoy talking to the players and doing random in-game interviews over the headset, so I figured I'd make a video along the same lines. Take care!

    I still preferred the lines before the final ones were put in :D

    Good show though

    Denshin is a rather overpowered class.

    I generally find higher characters to be more fun to voice, which is probably why I did that first.

    Sure! Requests? Topics? Things you'd like to hear about or stupid things you'd like said in the SS voice? :P

    Sure! I'll do another.

    No, I don't have a Voices profile, but I do have a Voice123 profile. http://voice123.com/micahblakeslee

    That's funny. Del Toro never came to mind while doing the character, but now that you say it, I can hear it.

    That was a nice explanation, thanks for sharing it. In fact, I should say I like the sharpshooter's tone of voice a lot compared to others ( even though I find the others much more funny, but this is a detail, isn't it? ). Do you plan on voicing other PVK2 characters in the future, oooor?

    hey i added yah on steam (unnk)


    now to watch


    edit. your mic is barely picking up your voice in this video, i have to jam up the volume on my speakers to about 80%

    the cleric voice is REALLY nice, it sounds as though it should coming out of Kennith Mcmillan's (most notable in dune as baron harkonnen) mouth but resembles a breathy Jim Broadbent from moulin rouge

    and just for a laugh when i had paused the video to chat with colonel on steam.... you seemed quite entranced by your forum avatar :D

    I noticed that too after I had already filmed this. I'm on vaction and away from my real recording equipment at the moment. This 15$ Logitech is kind of unpredictable. :P I apologize.

    Edit: I just noticed I also had my export volume set strangely low in WMM. I'll try reexporting it.

    hey its understandable just wanted to make sure you knew that the audio pick up was very very low :D


    You have a great knack for this stuff...

    Im actually full of questions.... but there more of a one on one question and answer type scenario. To explain i was an applicant for Voice Acting way before i ever became a Tester. Mainly gathering constructive criticism, opinions, and any knowledge I can.

    But to keep this question and answer session with in this threat on topic....


    What would you consider is the thing you enjoy the most about doing this type of work?

    Generally yeeeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssss, but it may be necessary if you ever find yourself doing a dub for a cheap anime, HUUUUUUUuuuuuuhhhh?!

    But for an action game like PVK, no. Bad idea.

    Thanks! Yeah, that's the idea. My portfolio is rather paper thin, at the moment. I mean, I have a lot of stuff, but much of it isn't really up to my current standards of quality. I'm always learning, but I'd hate to send a reel to, say, Funimation that had a bunch of stuff from when I was REALLY learning. image' /> PVK is pretty much the first project that I was involved in for which I have exceeding pride. It was a real honor to be able to participate. I guess I could always just make up some stuff for a reel, but I would much rather just be involved in more projects and get demo reel material that way. It helps both me and others.

    Congrats on the W40K gig! That's awesome! Can't wait to hear it!
    The stuff he has me voicing didn't come with much more information than "They are bad" so I'm going to have to make a few variations and see which one he likes best. I'd like to be able to do a good job. Unfortunately, I've been struggling with a pretty bad chest cold as of late which has delayed my work. It's going away, though, so hopefully I'll be able to get back to work soon. Or maybe, the sickness would make me sound more evil. :P

    And it's not just the W40K work! Songbird also got me involved in a Deus Ex mod. I should use you guys as my agents! ;)

    I fondly remember a time where the sharpshooter would squeal like a little girl every time you hit him.

    Hah, aw man, I wish some of those lines were in the game, even if they had no reason to be.
    "Touch me-No, not there! Here~"

    I wish you luck in your endeavors to find fabulous projects to be a part of.

    Also, Kool-aid Man!?

    Thanks! I appreciate that!

    Yeah, most of the lines I believe to be the funniest had nothing to do with the PVK universe and served no function in-game, so I understand why they were cut. There's, however, still always a part of me that wants that stuff in there anyways, even if he just blurts the non sequiturs out randomly for no reason. image' />

    And, yes, Kool-Aid man! If I posted the entirety of the unedited sessions, you would hear a lot of strange things. Always good to keep the work fun!

    "Can I... have the booti?"

    Probably my fav. voice command in the game, so far.
