They may not release the voice and music pack at the same time as the game ;)

That's possible... I remember there being a discussion a while back about whether the voice pack should be optional or not... I don't recall what the outcome was, though.

Peace & Luv, Liz

I believe that it was going to be optional ;), due to the fact that some ppl wouldnt be able to download it all at once :-\

Yes, they did... I remember the whole hoax of them saying they'll NEVER EVER make a voice pack for KQ2+, then releasing it on the 1st of april so everyone would think it was a joke ;-D

I doubt KQ9 would do the same though... they'll probably want you to be able to enjoy the full experience the first time around  ;B

I don't see why the voicepack shouldn't be optional... After all, you would be able to play the game in a "text only" mode, right?  :-\

I hope that the voicepack (optional or no) would be released at the same time as the game. With all due respect to AGDI, I prefer to enjoy the full game the first time I play it  ;)

I hope there's at least a subtitles mode... I hate when a game has voices but no subtitles. :P

The game will not be released in May - we won't have the coding even completed by then.  Also, we want the speech pack to be available at the same time.

And, no, since I won't begin recording the voices till mid April, they will definitely not all be recorded by May.  Plus, I still have to cast our lovely online auditioners.

Don't expect this game before Christmas this year (and that's not an official date either - a la Bungie - the game will be released when it's finished.....whenever that is ;)).  But that doesn't mean we won't have other goodies for you before then.

Didn't they say there would be subtitles? I want subtitles as well - sometimes I have troubles understanding spoken english :-[

That's what headphones are for, hon! ;D

Seriously... I personally have sporadic problems with my hearing, plus my audio comprehension isn't as good as my visual comprehension. So while I enjoy the extra spice that voices bring very much, I like having text too so I know I won't miss/forget anything. Having both at the same time is better for me than just one or the other at a time.

I forget which thread it was, but both Cesar and Rich said that there will be the options of: text-only, voice-only, and text & voice.  :)

I personally like playing with both text and voices. ;D

I like Torin's Passage log.  You can go through and look over every dialogue that has been spoken.  It's really cool.  I don't think we're implementing anything like that, though.  With all the text, it wouldn't be a bad idea.  but let's get a fully work game first ;).

I liked the Grim Fandango log - it's saved as HTML so you can read it from outside the game as well - pretty useful if you're fishing for quotes  ;)
