One tone, but some dudes are just bastards and they don't need to have some soft side or hidden good motivations. I liked it.

One of my favorites from ME2, sad to hear this. He was only 61.

Yeah I liked him. The only shame was that he was gimped in his dialogue on the ship.

Rest in peace, Robin Sachs.

That's still perhaps a better fate.

really speaks to the voice actors performance that a character like zaeed apparently resonates with a good bit of people.

Apparently so.

I actually liked Zaeed. Took him on a lot of missions in ME2.

#21 Posted by moffattron9000 (388 posts) -

I'll miss you, guy who was a key part some of my favorite episodes of Buffy.

#22 Posted by ShadowConqueror (3175 posts) -

Bummer.

#23 Posted by Deranged (1899 posts) -

Wow, I can't believe it.

Rest in Peace Robin Sachs.

R.I.P.

A unique voice that will be missed.

I was JUST looking him up on IMDB the other day. Ain't this a goddamn shame.

I think he had plenty to say, just never in a dialog wheel. Like Kasumi, you go back after every story mission/new squadmate and he'll usually have something new to say. Which I didn't figure out til my 3rd play-through, making him WAY WAY cooler.

That really sucks. Zaeed was awesome. Dude could take down an angry Krogan single handedly.

RIP Mr. Sachs.

I loved his voice. He will be missed.

Oh man. He's done voices in some of my favourite games. What a shame. :(

#32 Posted by Ghostiet (5534 posts) -

I loved Sachs's gruff voice. Such a damn shame.

#33 Posted by SirOptimusPrime (2037 posts) -

:(

I wasn't a fan of the character of Zaeed but his voice work was fantastic. I'm also rather fond of Galaxy Quest and Buffy... so, yeah. That blows.

#34 Posted by AoDfan (33 posts) -

His episodes of Buffy were always good.

#35 Posted by ArbitraryWater (12572 posts) -

The voice definitely made the character, rather than the other way around.

#36 Posted by probablytuna (4059 posts) -

RIP :(

#37 Posted by Wiseblood (698 posts) -

Zaeed will finally be reunited with Jessie.

#38 Posted by Morningstar (2309 posts) -

He even looks a little like him. Rest in peace buddy.

I really enjoyed his voice as Zaeed. When I had the choice to leave a party member with Garrus while under attack, I knew Zaeed would make sure Garrus stayed alive while I was gone. That was a pretty awesome moment, that feeling that he had my back and I could trust him to get the job done, even if it's a minor moment in the grand scheme of that game.
