       Dear Commander Shepard,
    I am a Prothean prince* who has recently inherited a planet worth 205,000,000 galactic credits. If you were to pay me 100,000 credits now and wipe out the Reapers on my planet I would gladly give you a 50% return of my promise return value.
    Please reply urgently.

    I like it.     It's not an accent you hear often in video games unless there is TOKEN AFRICAN GUY. It makes it a bit more...exotic and mysterious. Also, I just kinda like African accents.

    I don't have a PROBLEM with it, I just think it's kinda funny. It's a complete 180 from how I envisioned a    Prothean    would speak. It's not the accent, it's that it's too human. Turians and Drell have that throaty, reverberating quality to their voices. Asari tend to have a seductive yet dignified tone. Volus and Elcor...well, that should be obvious. Hanar are unique because of their very nature, and their "speech" reflects that. Vorcha, Batarians, they all have distinctive qualities to them.

    But not the    Prothean   . It just sounds like some random African dude, with no inhuman qualities to it. Maybe that's intentional, but I was expecting a bit of a difference. I like the voice as it is, I just find it kinda funny because of how unexpected it was.

    Or someone whos actually tired of the shitstorms caused everytime a company tries something. It's getting to the point that if a company even thinks of releasing a game a shitstorm will come up.

       It just feels really strange coming out of a Prothean though. I don't think Bioware could ever live up to my expectations for them and that is why this whole thing never should of happened. I can't listen to the beautiful Vigil theme now without thinking about a bob-sled team

       I think the issue is that everyone expects an ancient dead race to sound powerful and ancient, not African. Personally I think its a welcome change from the stereotype of what a ancient race should sound like.

    Well, looks like they're all 360 and PS3 versions

    I suddenly don't care about this event.
    If I lived in the area I still would.

    Console players are somewhat more susceptible to "OMG SPECIAL STUFF" than PC players. Thus... get there before anyone else take all the copies and ebay/craigslist them for $90-$150 a pop. PROFIT.

    except that this issue is definitely worth having a shit storm over. repackaging a lore-critical character to be sold as $10 day 1 dlc is crossing the line and is absolutely unacceptable.

    Perhaps, but the game's gone gold, hasn't it? Unless the DLC would bring new VO files, but, somehow, I doubt that.

    It's funny that some people get upset based on how they assumed it would be like.

    Anyone else hope we get to see more Spectres? All we've met in the games apart from Nihlus (not his fault, he was onscreen for about two minutes) have been awesome.
    Nihlus, Saren, Tela Vasir, and    the leaks mention a salarian Spectre named Jondum Bau

    You can definitely hear a sort of echo, it's not just some African dude talking.

    I'm sure there's a quality in his voice, some sort of effect that makes the voice seem alien. I don't know how to describe it, but it's there, we can hear it.

    Is an "echo" the right word to describe it, though? When I think of echo, I think of the voice repeating somewhat, bouncing off the walls of a large confined space. I don't sense that aspect in his voice, though I don't think "warble" or "bubbling" is the right word. It's kind of like being underwater, only it's clearer whilst still retaining the effect.

    One of my Taekwondo instructors is African and his first language is french.

    On the horizon today it looks like a 90% chance of Shitstorm with a 1% chance of Dinglehail and moderate to severe Shit Lightning. Bring your umbrellas with you today folks it's going to be a shit-tastic day.

    Flanging is what I think you're thinking of (the same method is used for turian vocals):

    Lets talk about the multiplayer. I think it's a huge mistake that they didn't allow us to unlock all classes. My point is that they are still able to collect viable information from the gameplay statistics to balance the final product. I heard an update for your game on the X360 costs the company 40000 bucks. So they better get it done in less than 3 updates. What needs to be nerfed and buffed in my opinion: Stasis is a litte bit OP, especially agains phantoms. I took 8 of them out alone yesterday. Slightly nerf required. Other similar powers (Concussive shot, Energy Drain etc.) need a slight buff to stun Phantoms. This one change will make other classes viable for Gold and not drop Asari Adept into oblivion. Charge and Nova is slightly OP as well, vanguard will be hard to balance. My point is that every class should be able to reach the highest score at the round end, play what you enjoy and not what gives you the highest score.
    It's 10000 per region minimum, so 70 grand for all regions.
