Voice acting and video games go together like peanut butter and jelly these days. That's not necessarily a reflection on the quality of the combination - some people love the sandwich, others hate it - but no matter your feelings on the subject, most of the games currently hitting stores feature voice acting. It's just a fact, like it or not.
If there's going to be voice acting in games, at least developers can hire the right talent for the job. Thankfully, Sega
is doing just that by hiring Don Cheadle and Samuel L. Jackson to lend their voices to the roles of James "Rhodey" Rhodes and S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury in the forthcoming "Iron Man 2: The Video Game."
I was already pretty excited about this game thanks to Matt Fraction's involvement in the story and the inclusion of villains like Crimson Dynamo, so bringing Cheadle and Jackson into the fold only increases my enthusiasm for the project. It would be nice to have other cast members like Robert Downey Jr. and Mickey Rourke involved, but at least Rhodey and Fury will sound like they're supposed to.[Link via Kotaku]
