Personally, I didn’t mind that he just had a Palace Guard voice, that’s kinda what I imagined him to sound like anyway. (Karn’s voice irked me, though.)
But, recently I started thinking, if he did have his own unique voice, what would it sound like?
It couldn’t just be a regular Drone voice, it had be worthy of his rank & colossal stature. I mean, the dude chokeslammed RAAM.
His growl gotta be deeper than the Mariana Trench.
Then I was like, wait… The Dark Lord. That’s perfect:
More specifically I think I’d layer the demonic voice over the Palace Guard voice, so that it’s kind of a mix. Ya know, kinda like harmonized singing. But, ya know, hellish.
(The OG Kantus voice was created using a similar technique, they’d layer inhales over growls.)
But yeah, this is my official petition to give Sraak the Dark Lord’s voice in Gears 6. It’s the ideal sound for him and I can no longer be convinced otherwise.
Kantus will always carry the most unique voice to this series, even more so with their motivational chant. That aside I too feel like the Theron hissing type of voice should’ve been limited to Raam and Therons only.
The more I hear Karn’s old voice, the more sad I get about this lmao. It’s so sick.
Yeah, a lot of things about this final drop just felt a bit rushed.
I mean we have Valera looking like Kait, Barrick’s nerfed armor/biceps, Marcus having the same issue as Barrick + a crooked do-rag. It’s all kinda unfortunate. Bittersweet, ya know?
But, I’m really hoping for the best for Gears 6. Now that they have a better understanding of most things (PvE classes, game modes, store stuff, rewards, etc.) as well as having a full team to model/animate/etc.
Plus, voice actors will probably be slightly more available (now that we’re no longer balls deep in the pandemic), so hopefully more unique voice lines, interactions & expressions?
Basically, I just really hope TC comes in and puts nuts to butts with content in Gears 6.
