Voice actor Michael Dobson was born to be the voice of DeathSpank. Michael does that "full of himself douchebag" attitude perfectly, says DeathSpank creator Ron Gilbert, and easily nailed his audition session for the character.  Gilbert told me during my preview time earlier this week that Michael "was the first guy to walk in. I just heard him and went cancel everyone else!"

Michael not only nailed the voice, but he really got into the character of DeathSpank. "There came this point where [Michael] would read lines and go “Oh DeathSpank wouldn’t say that. He’d say it like this!” He’d be changing the wording on me a little bit."

DeathSpank is a funny game and a big part of the reason people will find any game that's meant to be comical is the voice talent. If you don't even chuckle at the first five minutes of DeathSpank, then you are a soulless person. SOULLESS!

Give me Shelter (and all its cute animals, too)

Shelter 2 is putting you higher up on its gorgeous food chain. The first game had you playing as a badger and it seems like no one wants to be a badger. So for the sequel you are a lynx, just trying to raise your family--something we can all relate to.  Oh, and it's out in February. Hooray. more

The Magic Circle tackles game development with clever satire

You ever wonder what it's like to be a character in a videogame? Most people would think of something pleasant like Mario or Sonic the Hedgehog, not someone from Resident Evil or Silent Hill. But what would it be like to be i...more
