Another poorly recognized Nolan North appearance

#1 Posted by Rockdalf (1274 posts) -

Did anyone notice he was in this game AND not using the voice people think is the only one he can do?  Credits list him as Corrupted Cores and Faulty Turrets.

Nolan North is the Skynet of videogames. At first you think he's cool, but he's slowly taking over everything and appearing everywhere...

Nolan North is a God.
I want to be him when I grow up.

Of course you would, with your Star Trek style alternate universe evil Nolan North goatee there.

I don't recall anyone accusing Nolan North of only being able to do one voice.

#8 Posted by Dtat (1623 posts) -

I saw that in the credits and I busted up laughing! This man does some WORK!

#9 Posted by Evilsbane (4516 posts) -

I wonder why I found the Faulty Turrets so great.

#10 Posted by Red12b (9073 posts) -

Faulty Turrets? god I need this game, love that reference
#11 Posted by Blackout62 (1324 posts) -

Wait he was the voice of the faulty turrets? Well guess that's another beer I need to buy Mr. North. One for every role where he breaks from Drake voice.

Well another reason to play through it again! Speed run against Nolan North go!

I see it all the time.
#16 Posted by Warihay (480 posts) -

It blew my mind as well when I saw it on the credits.

Totally hadn't noticed while I was playing, though the thought of him voicing the corrupted cores is even more exciting than the thought of him voicing the faulty turrets.

To be fair, the dude has range.

He's a well-known commodity and can give the devs what they need. More power to him.

I'm starting to wonder if he just goes around begging for work.

SSSPAACCCCEEEEEE!!!1!!1!11

He killed it as the cores, all of them were great. I'll be sorely disappointed if they don't win this year's Northie.

Someone here on GB said Nolan North was in the game and then this is what followed:

I played through the game again to see the credits.
Saw who he played, then played through the game again to hear him again.      again.

Okay, those weren't the real reasons why I played through the game three times, but still...

Yeah, I did a double take when I saw him in the credits. An added bonus to that ending.

GOD DAMN IT THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN MARKED SPOILERS! 


WAY TO RUIN THE GAME!

Poorly recognised appearance? You say that like it's easy to tell it's him. It's not, there's a lot of processing on his voice work.

I doubt anybody would have recognised him without reading the credits.

I havn't heard the corrupted cores I believe, unless something isn't clicking. But for the Faulty turrents, this applies. there is a level of quality to be appreciated in the delivery, regardless

I think the performances he gave in this game, are probably my favorite of his to date. Really, great stuff. 

#34 Posted by project343 (2809 posts) -

I really want to see the Bombcast's reaction to this. I hope someone emails in.

#35 Posted by Red (5994 posts) -

Were this not released the same year as UC3, it would be a strong contender for the Northies.

#36 Posted by Xpgamer7 (2375 posts) -

Being a nolan north beginner fan I really don't know much about the guy. I know he's talked to himself and has a variety of voices but I know little more.

Fucking Nolan North!

1) Space space space space space

2) Looks like someone might be up for a 2011 Northie this year...
#39 Posted by RustySpoon (143 posts) -

Holy shit, they recorded 5 minutes worth of lines for a character you interact with for maybe 30 seconds? I fucking LOVE this game!

The unused diolauge in this game is really amazing.  I mean, they just recorded so much gold, it's a shame they didn't fit it in.  Obviously the last few lines of his happen during the credits, though I don't remember hearing them.

@Zero_: That is AMAZING!!

I will leave this fucking site if the space core doesn't win this year's Northie.

They should stop putting Nolan North in the credits, and just make it generally understood that Nolan North is probably in every game.
