Specifically, female voice two. It isn't overdone and super "oh ho ho I am ze Frenchman oui oui" like you might think given the game. It's super great and also real funny. You guys can say that Troy Baker/Laura Bailey/Cockney is the one true voice but you are all wrong. The French voice is the best voice. Hearing French exclamations when shit starts popping off is amazing every single time. Frankly, if you're not playing with the French voice and Mad Decent blasting from the radio, you're playing this game wrong. WRONG.

French Boss is non-canonical!

Is Mad Decent the station with the Butterscotch Boss on it?

#8 Posted by MooseyMcMan (11281 posts) -

NEVER!

It's either North or Atkin-Downes for me! Still undecided. Leaning toward ole Limey, from all my time in Saints Row The Third. By which I mean that hearing that Nolan North isn't CONSTANTLY referred to as Nolan North in the game bums me out.

French Boss is the only canon!

It is the one.

Oh shit, I missed this post. The frame rate was kinda borked early on. The tutorial area had some slowdown and a weird scripting thing where the three partners teleported from in front of me to further up the area where I had to stealth the guy. But after that, the framerate has been fine; other than when I did a UFO Rampage and caused so much destruction low to the ground that everything slowed down.

It's been playable. Just don't turn the camera towards the trees when you're blowing a lot of crap up.

The french female voice is my pick too. THough I have to say that the "southern belle" voice is also excellent.

I also enjoy the fact that whenever Nolan North gets to play Nolan North he hams it up like a bad VO. His pain sounds in SR4 are especially good.

Laura Bailey till the day I die. You'll have fight the rigor mortis to pry the keyboard and mouse out of my cold dead fingers to change the settings.

#19 Posted by DonChipotle (2781 posts) -

Guys, I know Laura Bailey is good and all

But does she start cursing in French when you play a fraud game and ragdoll through the air?

Didn't think so. Female 2. The ONLY voice for Boss.

#20 Posted by NinjaChocobo (31 posts) -

I think you're a bit too excited about French cursing...

do they exclaim sacre bleu at any point? if not, i can't support this

#23 Edited by DonChipotle (2781 posts) -

I haven't heard sacre bleu yet but anything is possible, oui?

#24 Posted by BurningStickMan (231 posts) -

Incorrect. Rebecca Sanabria is the one, true Boss. However, I guess this French lass will have to do.

Look, It's all about about the British Ruler of the Free World,

but more importantly, you are so correct, Mad Decent shits on all others

Despite your incorrect assumption about the origin of the President, you raise the finest of points. That song alone sold me on that entire station.

Will keep that in mind to try that one out though still missing the Eastern Europe/Russian sounding one from SR3 in the 4th game. Still did the first run through with the default female voice as it had quite a lot of good lines in SR3 but the Russian one was also good in a lot of places.

Amen!

Sanabria was the best in SR2 and SR3. The way she reacted to Mayor Burt Reynolds was the most adorable thing ever.

I adapted to her absence by making The Boss straight-up "They Live' Roddy Piper. Troy Baker pitched down 10%. He does an authentic Ric Flair "Woo!" The lack of blue flannel was a little frustrating, but then I got awarded the "Hot Rod" outfit so I'm set for rest of the game.

Yep, I was going to use female voice 1. Then, I tried out female french voice and it's amazing. She says merde instead of shit and it's hilarious! Merde!

#35 Posted by DystopiaX (5334 posts) -

Guess I'm gonna have to make a buff dude with a french lady voice when I get the game then.

#36 Posted by OneManX (1693 posts) -

I was miffed they got rid of Female 2 (the latina, I think?), but I am soooo digging the french voice actress. Her delivery is just greatness, I here Troy Baker in everything, I here Nolan in everything, I heard laura bailey in everything.... I am just glad to hear a different voice.

Robin Atkin Downes is differen........ Oh jeez he has done a lot of video games

#38 Posted by el_tajij (712 posts) -

@donchipotle: Couldn't agree more. I changed to the french voice to suit my character redesign lastnight and I was super surprised at how funny/awesome it was. God damn, playing through this game multiple times seems worth it just for the different voice actors!

#39 Posted by MikeLemmer (570 posts) -

Yeah, I want a President that sounds like a former KGB member!

#40 Edited by Yummylee (22040 posts) -

I've found Atkin Downes to be pretty damn satisfactory thus far. But for an inevitable second playthrough, I'm now definitely tied between the French lady voice and the Southern Belle voice.
