    Is it just me or did he not have much of a vocabulary? I cringed when he was trying to describe the new D3 lmfao.

    That's what I enjoyed about interviewing him. Very down to earth and fun to talk to.

    He sounded a little unsure of how to choose his words in the end in regards to the design. Perhaps he is in favour of a darker version?

    Lol. I could not make out what to think with him describing WoW to diablo 3//diablo/2lod. He either did not play them that much at all, not at all, or was being VERY careful lol.

    Seems like anyone you ask about the art direction treds on it like they are above a 20,000 foot hole walking on thin strands of rice paper. Better not fall ^_^.

    Whats interesting is him throwing a diablo 4 out there. Or him saying he damaged his voice screaming in a "mutation" and big "battles" kind of voice. Now that bit of info right there was the key to the interview i think. Aside from his awesome and fantastic voice for deckard cain, which i thought was brilliant and very humorous.:thumbsup:

    Did any of you go to his website? It's very alive and entertaining.

    I was a little disappointed he didn't talk at all about his Tassadar character. I wonder what voice acting he might have done for Starcraft 2.

    And that Pure Pandemonium site is lucky now that they have that soundbyte of Deckard Cain plugging the site.

    Not sure. I've seen pictures of him online.

    He's done stuff for Scooby Doo, Speeed Racer, and Whinnie the Pooh if that gives any sort of idea.

    I'd say maybe he was born in the early 60's? Not sure though.

    Why does the interviewer constantly sound like he's chewing or sucking on something? Its quite annoying while trying to listen to Michael speak.

    What are you talking about?

    I just listened to the entire thing again on two different pc's and I didn't hear any sucking/chewing noises...

    EDIT: Ok I see what you mean now...although I really only heard it when I turned it up really loud...and even then it wasn't super noticeable.

    Hey give me some credit...I used Skype and a headset.

    I think he just wasn't all that familiar with the Blizzard games. I wish they would have asked him if he was a Diablo fan or if he at least played all the way through it. Even if he only played it when it came out I would still like to know which character Deckard Cain would choose??

    That's also a possibility I guess.

    Nice interview. I always thought the voice actor of Cain is as old as the Cain himself hehe

    So Gough's done recording Cain's stuff for now. I wonder if what he recorded is that journal thingy on the website or actual lines for the game. Perhaps the interviewer should have asked something like, how much he recorded so far or something.

    You pronounce it as "guff"? I always imagined it was "go".

    The guy sounds really boring because he's stopping in the middle of his speech to think about what he's going to say alot :/
    But it's funny when he suddenly switches to Cain's voice :D

    It's actually "goff", rhymes with Cough...I thought it was "go" as well...good thing I asked him before the interview started!

    Haha, good thinking :D

    I'd only recently found out he did the Deckard Cain rap himself (he commented on a youtube video saying that), used to think it was just some random guy who did it. The fact that he actually did it already makes me like him, heh.
