Default Dota 2 BS voice acting is BS


Seriously, I have never seen a more unfitting voice acting for a hero. I hope it's just a placeholder.

Your claim that BS' voice acting is BS is obviously BS.

It's too civilized. Bloodseeker looks (and is supposed to be) a crazy hunter for blood, but he talks like he just stepped out of Red Cross.

I don't think he's supposed to be mad or something. To me, his backstory resembes Aztec cult. Those belonged to it were looking pretty much like sick fucks, but it was more about following weird traditions rather than being madmen. I'd say, comparision with Red Cross is pretty exaggerated

He sounds to me like the kind of guy who would cut off an enemy's head and shit down their neck.

You are actually right, lol.

Bloodseeker's lore:

Quote:
Strygwyr the Bloodseeker is a ritually sanctioned hunter, Hound of the Flayed Twins, sent down from the mist-shrouded peaks of Xhacatocatl in search of blood. The Flayed Ones require oceanic amounts of blood to keep them sated and placated, and would soon drain their mountain empire of its populace if the priests of the high plateaus did not appease them. Strygwyr therefore goes out in search of carnage. The vital energy of any blood he lets, flows immediately to the Twins through the sacred markings on his weapons and armor. Over the years, he has come to embody the energy of a vicious hound; in battle he is savage as a jackal. Beneath the Mask of the Bloodseeker, in the rush of bloody quenching, it is said that you can sometime see the features of the Flayers taking direct possession of their Hound.

I disagree.

My only complaint is how some voices sound too similar. I know that Valve only have a limited number of voice actors, but compare Bloodseeker and Kunkka (both voiced by the same actor yet sound completely different) to Sand King and Sven (both voiced by the same actor and sound very similar).

See what I'm sayin'?

If Valve were good, they would hire some epic voice actors like Aya Hirano, Nana Mizuki, Akira Ishida or Jun Fukuyama

The huge flaw in that plan is flying those people over an ocean while they have busy schedules themselves. Also you only quoted Japanese voice actors....

On the other hand, at least it's distinctive from the Fire Head. God, the old uniform voices were terrible...

I'd add the Xenosaga series to the list, and while Bulletstorm was one hell of a swearing-fest, it's still very good.

Also, did you listen to the Z Kai English dub? It's actually better than the original Z dub.
