I knew I recognized Jasons voice

#1 Posted by Expletive (1057 posts) -

So I bought Shadow Complex last night, and played through most of it, and every time I heard Jasons voice I thought it sounded distinctly  
Familiar . 
 
So I checked Wikipedia, and Nolan North the voice of Jason also voice Desmond in Assassins Creed and Nathan Drake in Uncharted. 
 
So, any voices you notice from video game to video game?

The voice of Jack from MadWorld (Steven Blum) is the voice of Zaka from Valkyria Chronicles and Spike Spiegel from Cowboy Bebop.
 
Also, the voice of Vash the Stampede (Johnny Yong Bosch) is also the voice of Nero from Devil May Cry 4, Almaz from Disgaea 3, Adachi from Persona 4, Ichigo Kurosaki from Bleach, and a bunch of different characters in the Resident Evil and Final Fantasy games.

Fun fact, he also does the few vocal lines the protagonist in Persona four has. In other words "Persona!" and a couple grunts.

Yeah, Nolan North is in everything nowadays.  Not such a bad thing, though, considering how good of an actor he is.  His role as Romeo in ODST seems to be quite different from Nathan Drake.

Steven Blum was Cyrus in Dawn of War 2.
 
And Wolverine in Marvel Ultimate Alliance.

I keep hearing Yosuke's voice everywhere.

While it doesn't say it on his IMDB page, I'm pretty sure that Nolan North is also the voice of your character in Midnight Club Los Angeles. 
 
*EDIT*  HOLY CRAP!  I finally realized exactly where I knew him from!  He was Dr. Ramsey on Port Charles, the spin-off of General Hospital!  HOLY CRAP!  Very cool indeed.

If you ever get a chance check out this
 
If you wonder why you haven't seen Dwight Shultz (Murdock from the A-Team) on TV for a while, it's because he's been working for the video game industry for years, Just check out how many he's been in it's astounding.

 They look alike too

Saren from Mass Effect is Bane from Batman: Arkham Asylum as well as Baird from Gears of War and Beast from MGS4. I knew the 1st and 3rd ones but his IMDB page (the guy's name is Fred Tatasciore) told me the 2nd and 4th.

@jakob187: Unless you factor in that you watched a show based off of General hospital

To me, Drake looked kinda like one of the co-founders of Naughty Dog. Not the one working there now, but the one who left (yeah, I'm not good with names). I'm pretty sure I heard it somewhere and I saw the resemblence at the time, like before Uncharted 1 came out.
