Until yesterday I had no idea who Jesse Cox was.
I voted don`t care the only one of the three i know is Coh . If by chance i see a YouTuber i know and like i would prob just think cool .Like The Mad Queen who has been a CP fan for ever .
The rumor is the youtubers did their own VOs as well. I'm sorry but if this is true, wtf. That is a terrible idea.
Ugh... you just reminded me they had Ronda Rousey voice Sonya Blade in MK11. God, she stuck out like a sore thumb compared to everybody else.To a certain extent its bad. A random dude is unlikely to come up with as impressive voiceacting as trained professionals. On the other hand, Grimes will likely voice Lizzy Wizzy as well as her songs, which will probably be just fine.
Im not one to call it a "terrible idea", its just likely to be bad more often than not. Sometimes such cameos can be pretty good.
I am reminded of Iggy Pop in the Star trek deep space 9 episodes. He was pretty good. Or Stephen Hawking playing himself(a hologram) in Star trek next generation.
ps. I will likely not recognize any of these cameos except maybe Madqueen due to her distinct accent. (unless she speaks her native language and the game translates it with the cyber? Then I would FOR SURE not recognize her)
I couldn't pick out any of them in a lineup if you paid me, so I'll probably never notice.
This could seriously come back to bite CDPR in the ass. We've all heard of people getting in scandals ranging from minor to near-apocalyptic when something in their past comes back to haunt them. This could range from racist words or actions in their early social media to allegations of sexual misconduct to even darker things such as being linked to child pornography. Now, I don't know any of these individuals but that's the thing; no one does, really. People only know what these individuals are willing to share, and there's no telling what really lies behind the exterior.
CDPR should be extremely careful or one day we could wake up to news reports of how CDPR is linked to one scandal or another because of one of the "influencers" (God, I hate that word...so fucking pretentious!) they scanned into their game.
I don't know who those specific people are but this just brings up Jessica Chobot in Mass Effect 3 flashbacks. Horrendous. The difference between a professional actor/VA and some schlub with a microphone is night and day when it comes to acting and some unprofessional cameo stiltedly stumbling through lines of dialogue is just painful and immersion breaking.So apparently Jesse Cox, Cohcarnage and possibly others are going to be NPCs (likeness and all) in the game, some of them even having their own quests tied to them and I'm curious about what the community thinks about that.
Personally I hate it. Let me make it crystal clear that I have nothing against those people but I feel it's a bit immersion breaking bumping into these types of NPCs. For my personal taste the 3 farting trolls that referenced Angry Joe, Dodger and Jesse Cox was already pushing it a bit (along with the fact that gwent cards used conteporary personalities like Ciri but that's an entirely different discussion) but this feels.... jarring.
One might argue that they have Keanu in there as Silverhand but Keanu is a professional actor, when I watch Matrix I'm not thinking about him I'm thinking about Neo. I'm capable of detaching Keanu from Silverhand if that makes sense. When I bump into Jesse Cox I'm not going to think "oh, this guy's name is Steve (or whatever) and he has a job for me", I'm going to think "why am I running into Jesse Cox in my singleplayer videogame?".
To me the idea seems contradictory with the heavy emphasis on immersion in the other aspects of the game's design. So what gives?
If his appearance is customizable it's probably limited to something like his outfit.I feel that way about Keanu. I hope we can customize him as well as V. I heard somewhere the Johnny's appearance will be customizable. Has anyone else heard this too or just me?
