5 voice actors’ CVs that go on forever

Contrary to popular opinion, voice acting can be an extremely stressful job, and painfully difficult to sustain a livelihood from. However, a handful of talented people make the job look (and sound) easy, and their extensive portfolios are a testament to their skills. This week, PS3 Attitude is paying tribute to five of our favourite voice actors, and taking a look at their established careers.

Red Faction: Armageddon – The PS3 Attitude Review

If there’s one question that developers surely consider before making a sequel, it’s probably: rinse and repeat or start afresh? The number of identikit sequels around points to the former being the safest bet; however, isn’t that a bit boring?

All the same, Volition could’ve played it safe for Armageddon. They could’ve said, “let’s get a new Mason, explore a new section on Mars and rethink some of Guerrilla’s missions. It’ll be magic.” It probably would.

Red Faction: Armageddon interview | destruction, dinosaurs and aliens

Red Faction: Armageddon’s Geo-Mod 2.0 engine lets you turn buildings into rubble and pull rocks away from cavern walls, for the sole purpose of crushing your enemy. It’d be a waste, then, if all you were up against was dull, boring humans. This situation calls for aliens, prehistoric aliens.

Red Faction: Armageddon interview | the ‘summer blockbuster, popcorn, action-flck’

In Red Faction: Armageddon, you’re equipped with physics-based super weapons and a licence to destroy everything; it’s a vandal’s paradise. Factor in a few hundred extraterrestrials and you’re possibly looking at one of 2011’s summer hits.

We recently cornered Drew Holmes in a small hotel room to probe him on Volition’s philosophy for the sequel. Holmes, lead writer on Armageddon, told us that the studio is focusing on the “action epic”, the “Flash Gordon, Indiana Jones blockbuster kind of stuff”, and he’s not kidding.

Red Faction: Armageddon preview | fighting the Infestation

We are in the marketplace, four of us, and tens of bony, nimble aliens are surrounding us. They’re clinging to the walls and hurling themselves at us, while we’re desperately trying to survive by pumping a truckload of lead into them. It’s dark; the pace is fast; there is destruction everywhere; and we’re having a lot of fun.

We’re playing Red Faction: Armageddon’s Infestation co-op mode. It is essentially a Gears of War-style Horde mode, which – for non Xbox-owning readers – is similar to Call of Duty’s Nazi Zombies, Uncharted 2’s Siege mode and Bulletstorm’s Anarchy mode. It has you fighting wave after wave of aliens (about 30 waves per map) with increasing difficulty the more you kill.

Mars is once again in chaos, 50 years after Alec Mason united with the Marauders in Red Faction: Guerrilla to liberate its people from the tyranny of the EDF. This time a cataclysmic event has rendered the surface uninhabitable, forcing everyone to relocate underground. Clearly there are evil people behind this.

Red Faction: Armageddon to introduce ‘Ruin Mode’

THQ and Volition have never been shy about the destructible environments of the Red Faction series. In fact it’s one of the game’s main selling points.

For the upcoming Red Faction: Armageddon, the minds behind the red planets latest mining foray are further embracing demolition with the addition of ‘Ruin Mode’. The latest trailer demonstrates exactly what gamers can expect. Have a look.

See it. Shoot it. Destroy it. Repeat. A simple formula that spawned a unique franchise.

Slated for a May release the newest game in the series: Red Faction: Armageddon looks to take the outfit in a slightly different direction. Instead of miners rising up against the oppressive hand group of violent groups, this version appears to dip its toe into the sci-fi realm. How much of a departure is this from previous games? Have a look.

The Year of the Rabbit; 2011 for you and your PS3

Well then, dear PS3 lovers… it will soon be the Year of the Rabbit, the happiest of all the Chinese zodiac signs.

In Chinese astrology the Rabbit is considered to be happy and popular. Rabbits are known for their artistic talent and good taste. You might say there are certain attributes of the Rabbit that foretell of a great year for Sony’s flagship console.

So, is that the case? Or will 2011 be more a ‘dog of a year’ than a metaphorical ‘lucky rabbit’s foot’?

Remember that mysterious redemption code that was included with new copies of Darksiders? We hope you kept it safe as THQ have finally revealed what it redeems and no, it’s not DLC for the game. In fact, part of it doesn’t have anything to do with Darksiders at all.

Owners will be able to use the code to score a free copy of Red Faction: Guerrilla. Yep, you’ll be able to receive a copy of the game minus the $39.99 price tag. That’s a pretty sweet extra if you ask us.

Red Faction: Guerrilla update live today; Double XP all weekend

Though NASA may have recently scuppered any chance of us getting our Killzone 2 multiplayer game on with some colonial friends on the Red Planet, that’s not to say there isn’t some Martian fun to be had closer to home.

Available today as part of the weekly PSN update, Volition are ready to unleash a host of Red Faction: Guerrilla changes on the community. And, to celebrate the update, players will enjoy double XP all weekend.

Get your ass BACK to Mars; Red Faction: Guerrilla DLC announced

Red Faction: GuerrillaIt’s the catchphrase that just won’t go away. This time though, with a slight tweak of poetic licence of course, it’s actually relevant.

With buoyant sales and near-universal acclaim, it’s a no-brainer that THQ should keep riding the Martian success wave and release more content for Red Faction: Guerrilla. And come August 13th, that’s exactly what they plan to do.
