The part where human speech is heard.
Oh, come on, you wouldn't take Morgan Freeman or James E.J.?! They clearly have the best voices in all of history.
On the other hand, the worst choice would be Tom Hanks. Seriously... blech.
Yeah, I'd take Nimoy over Hanks, just the thought brings a shudder
Forest Gump when you discover Philosophy: "Y'know, life is like a box o' chok-lates"
If I had MY choice, I'd go for a female voice - say, Sigourney Weaver.
I think we should have a compromise - all voices for Civ 5 to be done by Morgan Freeman!
I think I could go without a quote from "Aliens" when I discover Future Tech. How about Whoopy Goldberg?!
I would love to have the voice of God doing voice-overs!
yeah, well, you can't beat Morgan, I agree, he's the top of the heap.
I don't picture Aliens when I hear Signourney's voice, tho' - rather, Planet Earth
They should have yoda's voice doing the tech speeches instead.
I think CivFanatics forum members should do the voiceovers for their favorite technologies.
P.S. I knew that they didn't get Nimoy back for the new BTS technologies, but I had no idea that was Sid himself. Huh.
Sid Meier was horrible. I do a combination laugh and cringe when I hear the Aesthetics quote. Ugh. They really should have gotten Nimoy back. Even though his delivery was a bit bland and robotic in many of the quotations, it was infinitely better than Sid Meier.
Morgan Freeman, Sigourney Weaver, Samuel L. Jackson, or James Earl Jones would all be awesome.
Nimoy was an odd choice. What does an actor who is known only for being in a sci-fi TV show about space exploration, have to do with a heavily historical, nation-building simulation?
Is it just a case of the designers thinking that we're all gamer nerds and will therefore go ga-ga over a nerd icon from a different genre?
Hammer your iron, you should, when glowing hot it is.
Leonard Nimoy just sounds good. I don't think it has anything to do with who he is (post now if you started humming the Bilbo Baggins song)
To be fair, I think Nimoy was chosen as much for In Search Of... and Ancient Mysteries as he was for Star Trek. There's something romantic and unusual about science and technology in this game which fits his sort of ghostly, wizened delivery.
I wouldn't mind if 'The Butcher' from Diablo did all the quotes.
Animal husbandry tech - quote replaced with "ARRRRRRRHHHHGGG FRESHHHHH MEAATTT!"
One of the few posts that actually made me laugh
wow, smackthewise! thats awesome.. could you image Cain the elder sounding off the later techs? "This does not bode well!" or Griswald talking about the ancient metal-working techs. "ahh, that sword is just not gonna work against those demons out there."
Come to think of it, would it be possible to create a diablo world for civ4?
I suggest we use Ozzy Osborne for the voicework in Civ5. He could say whatever the hell he wanted and nobody would understand it.
"Oi, I foo'ed ya, mate, I foo'ed ya. Oi got peeg iyun, I got fuggen peeg iyun. I god oll gawdem fuggen pig iyun."
