  • Puck has a bad voice actor

    I gonna start off by saying that I don't mind the tone of the voice or the words that are being spoken, but how they are spoken. My issue is with the voice actor doing a very poor job. I think valve should try to find someone with a bit more talent to do pucks voice or let the current voice actor redo the voices if they think that they can do better. When I play puck I have to turn my volume down all the way. I don't think there's another hero that sounds so bad that I have to do that. Good luck on your search for a decent voice actor. Cheers.

    completely disagree; it's intentional and they nailed it.

        Sounds like the voice actor is reading single words off of a list. not sure how that can be considered good voice acting.

          Puck is supposed to not be very good at the specific subtitles of English, since it is just one of the many langadges she has had to learn over the eons.

            the only thing that baffles me is how you think they could have had some horrible inaccuracy as you so claim and still put it into the game. do you think valve is some kind of amateur game developing company like S2 that wouldn't be anal about the quality of their voice overs? it's a big part of characterization. i think you're just having trouble understanding valve's depiction of puck as a character.

                If you are right then I think they did a good job making a bad voice. I hope they implement an option to mute the voices soon.

                  Wow. Please for god's sake don't change Puck's voice. One of the best in the game.

                  Also, it is intentional. He's basically an infant that has survived for countless eons. He's going to end up talking a little weird.

                      Puck's voice fits his backstory perfectly. He speaks with the tones and inclinations of a child yet pronounces his words as an intellectual who has been around for ages. Nailed it, really.

                        I agree in a different PoV

                        Puck's voice is neither cute nor shows intellect

                        Valve better hires Aya Hirano, she totally would give us a win voice

                          If you would read backstory, you would know Puck is supposed to be something alien -- almost eldritch. His voice is meant to reflect unfamiliarity with his surroundings, and it does so along with a certain aloofness.

                          Also he's adorable.

                          Please don't bring up baseless accusations about voice acting.

                            The puck voice is very well done. Hell, all the voices are amazing in this game B).

                              This is obviously intentional. It is possible not to like it though.
