I can't even bring myself to put a picture to this article and I don't imagine it's going to be that long of an article, honestly. According to this video, Michael Ironside won't be voicing Sam Fisher because of this new technology and they think he's a fat f-ck and can't jump around. Which has absolutely nothing to do with his voice. I'm sure Michael Ironside could be fine with this change, but this isn't about him so much as Ubisoft.
It won't be Sam Fisher. It just won't. I guess I just never considered they'd ever make this kind of decision. Michael Ironside could have said no, and then I suppose I'd be inclined to accept it because what could they do? I wouldn't even be mad at Ironside; maybe just disappointed. But this is an insult to the character and to Michael Ironside, so if he isn't pissed, I'll be pissed for him.
Normally this kind of thing doesn't cause much of a reaction in me. Maybe it's because of the reasoning. Maybe it's because a character I've loved playing as and loved watching develop is getting a voice change and I'm not sure it will feel like a true sequel, but more of a reboot. I dunno, am I overreacting?
