    You can spot some similarities in certain roles, but she is just one of those voice actors that has an insane control over their voice. Another is Mark Hamill. I would never have figured he'd be the Joker from the Batman animated shows and the Arkham games.

    Oh I can hear the similarities if I try. There's a slight Canadian accent but the thing is, I wouldn't have noticed had I not looked it up beforehand.

    Its odd that she would have an accent when she was only born there as she grew up in Alabama.

    Going through D3 in IMDB its almost as if Blizzard went to BioWare to borrow voice actors. There's almost twenty from Mass Effect, Dragon Age and SWTOR.

    Not that there's anything wrong with that, or that it's terribly surprising that voice actors would do games for multiple companies. Just found it interesting.

    Voice actors aren't specific to companies. Look at Steve Blum, he has been in about every video game as well.

    I know that. Just found it interesting that there were so many from BioWare games in D3.

    That is because BioWare often focus on getting the best voice talent and more and more games realize that solid voice acting is important.

    Should, it's only the save files and not some sort of crazy drm.
    I transferred my 360 char just by renaming the file extension on the save lol.

    The (voice) force is strong in him.
    Its good he didnt just fall down that his sidekick (Han Solo) got all the glory and moviecareer instead of him.

    Voiceactors are hired contractors that does random jobs for any studio that employs them like any other actor.
    Voiceactors tend to enjoy great fame in Japan.

    They dont get 50 million dollar checks from doing the lead of a game so they cant do one game and sit back for 10 years like actors.

    Yep! All your saves are stored in your Documents folder. Doesn't matter where you buy the game.

    Jar Jar Binks. The one thing that makes Mass Effect superior to Star Wars. Without him . . . well, Star Wars has light sabers.

    I dunno, biotics don't grant the precognitive and predictive abilities of the force, nor do they really allow one to react fast enough to block or dodge bullets via a lightsaber.

    Also, lightsabers.

    Biotics absorbs energy bullets.

    And omniblades > lightsabers.
    Their only variety is what colour they are or if theres another blade on the other end whereas ominblades have different shapes and can be customized for different fightingstyles.

    I much prefer the mass effect universe to star wars.

    But star wars will always have that nostalgia from my childhood that mass effect can never replace.

    Honestly, I think ME is a better built universe than SW. Less of a hodge podge of random shit for one thing.

    I just love lightsabers.

    It's still pretty close with me though, and much of that is indeed nostalgia.
