So the New Locke is Far Better

No offense to Mike Colter, but the new VA, Ikè Amadi, suits the role of Locke a lot better.

I agree the Industry is a competitive work place I doubt he would take offense.

I’ve not heard them side by side at all to compare. 99% sure I’ve only ever heard Mike Colters VO

I prefer Colter but it’s not a massive deal

What?? they change Locke??

Yeah, the new VA was in the E3 demo. Ikè and Mike sound the same (yes, I get it) so it’s kind of hard to notice. Personally, I think that Ikè has more of a bada** way of delivery as apposed to Colter, but that’s just me.

Only the voice actor, Colter is still doing mocap and he is still the face of Locke, Frankie said that Colter didn’t have the time because of his role as Luke Cage, so they cast Ike Amadi, who actually sounds a lot like Colter.

Yes, he sounds a lot better than Colter. After seeing that Blur cutscene with Locke conversating with Thel, in his Phantom, I nearly panicked and thought that’s what we’re getting.

We all remember the Halo 2: Anniversary intro scene with the Arbiter…

“That is why I am sharing it with you now.”

shudders

Anyone else kind of hopping they put in a character with the same voice as “Betty” from Kung Pow: Enter the Fist?

I’m glad I’m not the only one.

Isn’t everyone?

I heard Frankie said Mike isn’t able to do the voice is because he’s busy with Luke Cage. I wonder if Colter will come back to do the motion capture for future games.

I don’t have an issue with a last minute recast. What I do have an issue with is the serious lack of sync between Colters image/face and the voiceover that don’t match at all. Granted, they are somewhat similar in voice. But you can tell when you see Colters face utter someone elses voice… its awkward and distracting.

That’s not the official job title, but it’s close enough.
Makes me laugh everytime i watch this.

He sounded pretty bad -Yoink- in the live action trailer, though. I hope Ike can do the same in the game. He sounded identical to Colter in the E3 demo, but we still have yet to see what he’ll sound like when he gets rather poetic.

I’m pretty sure the actor doing the voice in the live action trailer was Ikè… I heard that somewhere I’m sure…

I think Ike confirmed on his Twitter that it was him. I had no issues with Colters VA but Ike does sound better

Their voices are almost identical. Ike is slightly deeper, but I think he got the part because he’s a better voice actor. Colter does well in live action but goes into high school drama class mode when voice acting.

The reason he sounded badass was because that was Ike, not Colter.
