So I just beat the DLC an picked to start up gaige  and play the game as her. Right away I noticed that jumping and swinging her hammer have NO voice acting at all. Is this a common bug? Anyone else having issues?

Is it creepy if having no soothing young female voice is the thing that makes me not want to play borderlands as a 16 year old girl?

From the trailers she is anything but soothing.  
 
Also just now I got level 2. Nothing from her at all. And when I got a crit I thought I heard something but Clap Trap was talking.

I just got a crit and she said something. Guess it is just some small bug.

I'm pretty sure she talks more than my assassin, and that's saying something(heh), considering the way he talks.

She groans....a lot.
 
Too much to the point it makes me uncomfortable

Some of her lines remind me of Tiny Tina and I get sad.

@hbkdx12: Lilith in the first game either had an excruciating painful scream or an orgasm every time she was hit below full shields; at some point I just muted the game and listened to something else meanwhile.

Gaige said a few things often when you summon the deathbot. If you want to know who has weird lines, look at Zero. Says very little until you trigger his special then it is "Of course you made that move and in the move you will see a glint of light from my blade in the shadows..."

Just copy and paste a bunch of memes into microsoft sam and play them at full blast if you feel like you're missing a crucial part of the game.

I've actually had her talk in a man's voice in one game. Taht shit bugged someone playing as her as well the fuck out. I though it was something I had equiped but it shortly went away.

I hadn't tried Gaige yet, but that's what I was afraid of :\

Are you saying it was random, or that you couldn't tell what was going on?

From what I've played of her, I wish she'd just shut up. Her ad-libs are pretty darn annoying. Great class otherwise, though, and her robot is just so beautifully overpowered.

@BBAlpert: on the whole, I think she's a better character than Tiny Tina, but maybe that's just because you're not getting monologues from her. dunno if you checked out the ECHO blogs that Gearbox was posting around her release, but they were pretty alright. except the one time in one of the trailers when she said "awesomeness" and I wanted to die.

Ya shes hardly saying anything. ONLY when she gets crit kills does she talk.

@Dagbiker:

Huh? I'm saying it was ridiculous to have her 1 below full HP yet screaming like the world was ending, very annoying; does seem to be fixed in Borderlands 2 from what I've seen.

16?

Well.

Goddammit. (goes back and mentally erases every extra second spent lingering on the main menu/in-game menus... damn my thing for cyberpunk-looking girls... also, that just made Tannis and her "standing offer" extra creepy)

She talks. Reminds me a bit of Tina. Kind of wish she didn't.

It's a bug, as all of the DLC. She sometimes speaks some other she doesn't.

But hey, she is 20% Cooler, so who cares if she speaks or not.

No, she speaks. Do you have the Anarchy skill? She's very vocal when building up Anarchy stacks. She also talks when Deathtrap smokes guys, when you complete challenges and when you find loot. She basically speaks as much as the rest of the classes. Honestly, her melee grunt is really loud so I'd be happier if she did it less.

I did fear the same thing in the first 10 minutes or so though.

You can shut off the character voice, along with all the other character voices.

I'm still looking for the option to make the game's humor more than "LOL MEMES" and "OMG REFERENCE TO POP CULTURE!"

The game's humor is funny for the first playthrough and maybe first two hours. When you've played all five character classes and put in a good 20 hours, that's when you want to punch Anthony Burch.

Listening to podcasts with the TV muted has helped me maintain my sanity while playing this game.
