POLL: New voice actors in Episode 2 [SPOILERS]

Pick your three favorite new voice actors in Episode 2.

Katie, I forgot a certain evil wizard on the original poll, so I made a new one because I could not modify it. Can you please revote and delete the original poll? Thanks.

Remember, if you pick "Other", please specify. ;D

I did too, but all of his lines followed the pattern of "That's right", followed by a repetition of what the Red Knight just said. That annoyed me...

I picked the White Knight as my third favorite.  He cracked me up, constantly repeating everything.

The other two picks were Alexander and Manannan.  I really liked Alexander's voice (though it was only a brief scene he was in.)  You guys really seem to have done a great job casting the voices of the royal family.  Graham is just spot on and Alexander is as I imagined he'd sound.  I can't wait to finally hear what Rosella sounds like.

And of course Manannan's "Gwydion..." gets him listed too.

This was tough...

I though M. Fortunato turned in the best performance as Alexander, so I had to give him one of my votes, then I also thought the Ranger gave a noteworthy performance, and then I voted for Hole in the Wall because I thought it was hilarious that Cez did so well when he isn't even a voice actor. :P

But I also liked a lot of the others, like the white knight and the guard dogs and the lamp peddler..

I thought Fortunato did a fantastic performance. When Episode 1 came out, I had expressed how I felt about Oberon/Arch Druid's voice actor. I don't mean any offense, but I didn't think he differentiated his roles as both characters, however, I could tell that Fortunato had really pulled off an emotional performance. Without going into details (to avoid severe spoilers), I found the performance to be rather convincing. I have to applaud the great job that he did. Bravo!

I liked The Ranger's voice actor. While it sounded unoriginal, it fit the character. I imagined The Ranger's voice being unoriginal.  :P

That dark wizard did a good job too. Wow, I'm still blown away by that last cutscene.

I also have to tip my hat off to Cesar. He did a great job for Hole-In-The-Wall. I never thought I'd say that.  ::)

Technically he spoke in the opening moments of Episode 1.

Also, honorable mention goes to the Clinging Vines.  The two women who did the voices for them, were very good.  And the voice editing made them sound very creepy.  There's something about two voices speaking in unison, or almost-unison that is just creepy.  Especially when they want to play with you.  And their play involves strangling the life out of you.

If we're including characters from the intro, than Edgar. (Also, voted for Alexander, Manannan, and the Ranger)

Can someone remind me of the two BCS members that read the letters? I'd like to add them too.

It was Hagatha and Manannan. So you already have one of them, you just need Hagatha.

That was actually a big part of what I liked about him.

I was annoyed by Black Widow's "slip-ups". She would say, "You're so delicious, . . . uh, I mean handsome." I understand it was based off of how she acted in KQ6, but she didn't have much dialogue in KQ6. I think I was overwhelmed with the constant "slip-ups". By the end, I was like, "I get it, you want to eat me. Quit the 'innocent' facade."

I personally like how Graham gets back to her towards the end of the conversation.

I'll be honest, I laughed at that part. I was thinking the same thing, I just wasn't expecting Graham to say it.  :P

I thought those slip-up/corrections were okay from a dialog writing standpoint--a clever idea, if a little cliche--but from a voice acting standpoint, I thought Black Widow was one of the distinct low points of the episode.

Jollo, on the other hand, was amazingly good.  The voice was a dead ringer for his voice in KQ6, which was awesome, and I thought his lines were particularly well delivered.  The lamp seller was another voice acting highlight.

I agree for all accounts. Black Widow wasn't that good, but Jollo was pretty darn accurate. The difference is noticeable, but it's not bad at all. I also feel like Jollo's dialogue was obscure from what his dialogue was like in KQ6. Jollo had a very intense sense of humor in Episode 2 (with the detachable-arm trick, and his "Don't abandon me!" gag). Maybe because Cassima was captive in KQ6, Jollo held a more serious demeanor, but I see this "new side" of him to be refreshing, but at the same time, foreign. Regardless, the voice acting was better than I could have imagined for Jollo's character. Awesome work!
