Steve Blum, is he really that good? Dynasty Warriors related

Unread postby LittleDragonZ » Fri Jun 08, 2007 12:39 am

Just after completing Tomb Raider: Anniversary and watching the credits I noticed his name was under the voice of Tihocan who plays a minor role. I couldn't believe it! So is he really one of the most known, possibly the best voice actor in DW?

Also I've only just found out he does the voice of Gloin from Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle Earth 2 and I've been a fan of that for a few years now lol.

If you can do voices that don't stand out making you think ''I've heard that before'' and make you recognize him, then he must be good? I mean look at the difference in Sun Jian's voice compared to Xiahou Yuan's!

Whilst I think he's very good and well-known, and easy to tell when he does a voice, I think Kim Strauss is a little more well-known.

I've just noticed he did Vincent Valentines voice in FF: AC. I would of never guessed that otherwise.

Short answer: Yes.

Long answer: When someone can do two different roles in the same game, easily, without getting caught till the credits, then you know he's good.

Didn't he die? And wasn't he Zhang Fei's voice actor? Anyways, I think he was pretty damn good, if he was who I think he was.

No, he wasn't Zhang Fei's voice actor. And he's going to be a guest at Otakon in July, so he couldn't be dead. He does a lot of anime voices as well.

Then I have no freakin' idea who he is. Which voices does he play in Dynasty Warriors?

Sun Jian and Xiahou Yuan. But not in Empires or Xtreme Legends (he wasn't Sun Jian with a cold).

Yep, he is good, IMO. For the reason stated by Lafeel.

I think his voice is very fitting, but not necessarily fantastic, if that makes sense (now that I know who he plays from Sun Gongli).
