    Familiar voices

    I am a Sylvari, and while questing around Caledon Forest and Brisban Wildlands, I have heard some familiar voices. I am a fan of the Dragon Age series, and so far, I have heard an NPC that sounded like Duncan from DA:O, an NPC and Trahearne sound like Niall from DA:O, and of course, NPC's and Renvari definitely have the voice of Fenris from DA:2. Anyone else notice any familiar voices from other games?

    Nolan North does the Male Human character voice - he is Desmond Miles in Assassin's Creed, Drake from Uncharted, and MANY other games.
    Felicia May does the female Asura leader NPC's voice - she is the creator of that online show The Guild.
    A troll is a troll and a roll is a roll, and if we feed them trolls then we don't eat no rolls.

    Yuri lowenthal (voice of Sasuke from Naruto). I like Sasuke, but it's realllllly annoying hearing all these familiar voices in the game. Makes me match their voices with characters outside of GW2 rather then the ones in GW2. And also, they used the same VA for lots and lots of different models, which also annoys me because most cant change their voices that well lol.
    No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

    What's most disturbing is how Queen Jenna and the female sylvari are both jennifer hale. makes a dialogue between the two rather weird.

    Yea, it's uncool when there's a bunch of characters with the exact same voice. Maybe, it's just not feasible to hire enough to avoid that for the most part.

    Skyrim is REALLY bad in this regard - it feels as though there's ~10 voices in the whole game. There's of course, more. Probably.

    Fenris is the voice of Balthier, and everywhere that I hear him makes me flush. Such a sexy sexy man.

    Skyrim has over 70 voice actors, it's just that they're spread across a shit ton of NPCs, with some of the bigger characters getting their own.
    He is the life of guilds he has never joined.
    He once had a noobish moment- just to see what it felt like.
    If he were to beat you in a duel, you would have to fight the strong urge to thank him.
    The Lunar Elders have a holiday in which they honor him.
    He can speak Darnassian. In Orcish.
    He is: The Most Interesting Man in the World of Warcraft.

    I thought I would hate Felicia Day, but I actually enjoy Zojja for some reason or another.

    Steve Blum, while great as Rytlock, really really needs to get his throat cancer treated. I mean, put him in any game, and unlike say Nolan North, you can instantly recognize this guy. No vocal range at all

    He's a perfect fit for Rytlock, I don't deny that in the least, but I'm a little worn on him just from how much I see him everywhere else

    Eww, no. Same thing as Steve Blum, one voice to cast them all, and in the darkness be a terrible VA.

    I agree about both points, however, Steve does have a very recognizable voice, but his voice is so sex it doesn't even matter. I would want him to read me bed time stories.

    Gideon Emery does this for me, so I know how you feel.

    He does have a great voice. He did a pretty good southern accent in Secret World, but I prefer his deeper slow stuff like he did with Rytlock.

    Steve Blum as Orochimaru from the English dub of Naruto shows that he is capable of some vocal range. I think most companies just like the more recognizable voice.

    And very much liking his work, as his voice fits what I imagine for my male human characters.

    REALLY now?
    I hope you haven't forgotten my role in this little story. I'm the leading man. You know what they say about the leading man? He never dies.

    If you give in to your impulses in this world, the price is that it changes your personality in the real world. The player and character are one and the same.

    It's not too bad I think. Aslong as special characters have their own voices then I'm totally okay with regular people having same voice.

    Warmaster Forgal Kernsson, his voice sounds VERY familar to Roy Campbell from MGS. I'll be damned if it's not him!

    I miss Grey DeLisle...
