Looks like the Banjo-Kazooie throwback even applies to the voices.

@Stare at the Sun Sounds like he might be.


Sounds like Nolan North might be too!

@NCZ While I'm pretty tickled at both of them being involved... I have to wonder how much they're actually doing. If the plan for dialogue so far is Banjo-Kazooie style gibberish, it seems sort of a shame to get personalities like Jon and Nolan and just have them repeat a syllable or two for one character.

@Hayworth Whether or not that's the case, being a part of a game they both whole-heartedly support seems like a sweet enough deal for them.

@Hayworth I think that's the point. It's not a serious, much-deliberated, conscious casting choice. You're supposed to hear the character, check the credits, and then go, "That was Nolan North!?" It's just a cameo/in-joke for fun.

Kind of like how in Tropic Thunder, the last big joke of the movie is the revelation of the actor who played Les Grossman during the end credits. Or how David Hayter voiced some of the Mudokons in the Oddworld remake.

@NCZ Yeah, I suppose I was overthinking it a little, haha. Honestly, I think it's cool they're in the game at all. Part of me just wants to think "MAYBE THEY'RE BOTH DOING ALL THE VOICES1!1!1!1"

@NCZ The thought of having Jon Jafari on this site excites me.

He brought it upon himself.

@NCZ I mean I get that, as well as the company having all rights to decide what happens and what doesn't, but completely removing someone's lines due to that guy's views? It just seems like a trigger-happy decision, especially since he had literally no involvement aside from doing some noises.

(If this isn't the right place to bring this topic, I'll do it through PMs)

@Ghosty404 For me I just think there's a line that has to be drawn somewhere. I know JonTron has got into controversy in the past which was one thing but his recent stuff is uh... It's really an entirely new level. I don't think just describing it as a difference in opinion is doing it justice to put it mildly. Given the extreme nature of it, even though it's not a massive involvement, at the end of the day they feel that the image JonTron has cultivated for himself as of late, I don't blame Playtonic at all if the association doesn't gel with the happy-go-lucky, welcoming image they wish to evoke with their games or make a lot of people feel wholly comfortable. I had a feeling it was going to happen since at the end of the day it would have been a big elephant in the room. It's unfortunate Playtonic are stuck in the crossfire of a nasty situation that they otherwise had nothing to do with. But at the end of the day, we're responsible for our own actions, actions have consequences, and with the sheer extent of what Jontron said it's really just no surprise that it'd be a detriment to any personal or professional relationship.

And yeah no worries, I feel kind of weird talking about stuff like that at all here, so I'm just going to say that and then say if anyone else wants to talk further it'd be fine to go by PM.
