Watch Dogs, Saint’s Row, Assassin’s Creed (somewhat) all round up a list of open world, third-person action games we are set to see this fall. And yet, when faced with a choice of singling out just one? Grand Theft Auto V is a clear winner. There are just no other options. None. That being said, is Saint’s Row IV worth your time until the much-anticipated Rockstar title comes out? Does it manage to recapture the excellence of III? Keep reading to find out.
Spec Ops: The Line, a remake of an older Playstation series developed by Yager Entertainment (the originals were done by Zombie Studios). Once upon a time, Rockstar Vancouver was in play to develop a game for the PS2, but that never saw the light of day. Yager (published by 2k Games) took an interesting approach to revamping the series, focusing mainly on the single player progression and the story (in a war game you say? Preposterous). Do they have what it takes to re-ignite the old series, or is it destined to tumble into mediocrity?
For a long time voices in video games were rare, and, believe it or not, a key feature in a video game. We used to have to read dialogue and make the voices ourselves using a little something called imagination. I remember being excited when the voice saying “pass the puck” or “Blades of Steel” came out of my TV while playing a Nintendo. It was rare. Now it’s expected. There is a lot of great voice acting in video games and there are a couple of reasons for this. Talent and an actual personal investment to the character who is being portrayed. The following top ten is not about the best voice actors but rather the best voices acted. Thanks to these voices we loved/hated the characters and a big part are due to the voices supplied by the actors that gave real personality to who they were portraying. It’s like if someone else did the voice of Homer, it wouldn’t be the same. This is the Top Ten Voices Acted.
