As Uncharted, Mass Effect and the Arkham series have all proved, a quality cast of voice-actors can really take a game that one step closer towards being something truly special. This looks to be a lesson that Sleeping Dogs took to heart – featuring the voices of Tom Wilkinson (Batman Begins, RocknRolla), Emma Stone (The Amazing Spider-Man), Kelly Hu (X-Men 2) and Lucy Liu (Charlie’s Angels[!]), among others.
Thierry Nguyen, over on Joystiq, has written this interesting article about Troy Baker, the up-and-coming name in the voice-acting industry. Hailed as the ‘new Nolan North’, Baker’s voice can be heard in games as diverse as Diablo 3, Final Fantasy XIII, Saints Row: The Third and Mass Effect 3; as well as the upcoming much-anticipated heavyweights BioShock: Infinite and The Last of Us. It’s a well-written look behind the scenes, and definitely worth a read.
