News: Greg deBeer game dialog interview

| brandon

Greg deBeer isn’t a name you would know necessarily, but he’s in charge of english dialog for Sony, on both native and localized games. Some of Sony’s games have been getting better over time, in terms of their English voice acting, and this has been a subject of personal interest for me for quite a while, so the interview not only gave me a chance to voice my opinions on the matter, but also gave me a little more confidence that some people truly do care about what goes into these games. We discussed faked accents, using stars versus dedicated voice actors, and ultimately whether the main audience even cares. Worth checking out if you’ve ever grimaced at an English-language cutscene.
