Unhappy Do you like the Viking's voice acting?

Hi,

Not sure if its just me.. but I absolutely HATE the viking's voice acting. The goliath was completely BAD-ASS, but this unit seems to be a complete moron/bum. The voice (along with the phrases) seem to fit an unfit, bumbling, college drop-out. Much prefer the deft, deadly serious, professional goliath one! I know that the terrans consist of some 'space cowboy' types, but whilst those units were surley and had attitude, they still sounded skilled and dependable, if a little curt. This viking sounds like an only child of some rich senator whose been spoon fed success all his life and now daddy has bought him a spot in the airforce.

I don't mind the Viking. Sounds a bit more rambunctious.

The transformers reference is sweet, and uh... it's not like Vikings were educated efficient soldiers.

They were barbarians...

hahaha.. No.
Infact, we dont have republicans here in Australia - even though I hate the fact we are a monarchy *puke*.
Back on topic... Transformers reference or not, its sounds so lame. I would hate to have some incompetant tool (derogatory word similar to 'loser') like that fighting in my army. If it does keep this sh*t voice acting, Im going to replace all the sound files with the goliath's ones .

No way.....the phrases and the delivery (of the Viking) are the worst in the history of RTS....I was going to cite that, "Big Boy....training" line, and I see someone else had beat me to it.

I mean, I'll get annoyed when a Marine says, "Go-Go-Go!" three times in a row, but I can deal with it....This?......there's no way I can take 20 minutes of that.

I loved the radio-static applied to the voices in the original SC - The Wraith and Goliath in particular...(Oddly, the two units the Viking is replacing.)....they should really stick with that...much more authentic, and for some reason, easier to take 15 clicks in row.

EDIT:
If you haven't heard this - it can be experienced, here:

http://www.gamespot.com/video/939643/6176222/starcraft-ii-single-player-campaign-blizzcon-preview

It's the single player demo, (pretty long) so scan ahead to about 10:30-35

In this video, it's mixed in with the classic SC voices - it's much easier to hear how the Viking stands out

The Viking voice does not fit. It does sound like some beer-chugging, asshole college frat boy getting to use his new mech for the first time.

The original Goliath was one of my favorite units to listen to, because it did sound so serious and professional.

The thing is, ALL the Terran units (minus the Vulture) sounded professional, just with Southern accents and occasional colloquialisms. They still sound like soldiers. The Viking does not sound like a soldier. He sounds like a moron.

The voice acting itself might, perhaps, be passable, but the lines have got to go. If Blizzard wants to make the unit say Transformer references, then they should do it in the "funny" monologue, not the standard responses.

Viking sound like a redneck with shotgun shooting cans on a car wreck.

Seriously.

Seems too undisciplined.

They all need some good ol' fashioned discipline!

Perhaps It is the Viking's pilot personnality, afterall . Seems the new Terran Dominion recruits are too much arrogants and do overestimate against their foes and each others. They just don't give a shit about anything except their asses.

'Just my thought.

Now I'm gone....

Agreed. I think they were too far with the Terran's humor and crossed the line of idiocy with the Vikings quotes and voice.

We need more proffesionals and less teenagers.
