David Hayter dropped Metal Gear Solid 5

Postby Lsnake » 27 Mar 2013, 22:15

What the hell..?

Uhh yeah Kojima..for this makes a lot of sense. The only explanation I can think of, is that BB's voice after his coma is changed. After all, when BB arrives in MGS4 he doesn't have Hayters voice. So maybe it's because of that. I just don't see why they'd change something so iconic without reason otherwise.

I want more Hayter >_>

David Hayter dropped for Metal Gear Solid 5

Postby BlueScorpion91 » 27 Mar 2013, 22:20

It's probably a smart move, seeing as though the MGS4 Big Boss was voiced by a different person and Solid Snake would be too young to have the iconic voice of Hayter. It's still sad, but Kojima's not one to have done this out of being tight, it'll purely be for consistency.

Not really bothered tbh, the voice was cool in mgs1 But it's started to grind on me since. I know snake isn't known for his emotions, but some of his speeches he gave about battle and what not just felt way to detached.

It could be for story reasons, maybe it is not Big Boss but an early clone and the hallucinations (whale) are a side effect of the process. Who knows.

Does anyone know if in the original Ground Zeroes trailer snake was being voiced by the usual Japanese voice actor?

Akio Ōtsuka was the VA in the original Ground Zeroes trailer. He's back for the Japanese dub. This news is bloody disgusting if you ask me. David Hayter is Snake. A travesty that has ruined my excitement for the game.

The same guy who voiced him in MGS4 is voicing BB in 5. I personally don't mind, as synonymous as Hayters voice is for snake, I don't mind as long as its a solid (see what I did there) performance.

It doesn't make a lick of sense.

The voice in the trailer wasn't Richard Doyle- nor was it David Hayter- the voice in the trailer instead sounded YOUNGER than Hayter's rendition of Big Boss in Peace Walker!!! Not a bit happy about this. Not at all. The game itself looks phenomenal, but this for me is like replacing Peter Cullen as Optimus Prime.....it doesn't work on any kind of acceptable level.

Huh, first Sam Fisher gets a voice change, now Solid Snake. Odd.

It's probably because of mo-cap, when they mo-cap cut scene's nowadays they get the voice at the same time. It's why they changed the voice of Cole in inFamous 2 and other games. They need voice actor's that can actually act.
