    Noticed this too. They redid the voice overs for DD and they suck worse now.

    * nods *

    First time I ran though I stopped and wanted a replay just to confirm.

    I wonder why the change... And the new voice sounds really 'forced'. Kinda like some of Seth Rogen's voice overs...

    I'm guessing it's because they wanted to add the characters to the new dungeon, but couldn't get the old voice actors. So for consistency, they re-did the old lines too. Sucks D:

    itīs common practice when doing a re-recording or additional recording to redo all the audio from the previous parts aswell.

    a human voice is far from static, and many outside influences can greatly change how a voice sounds.

    getting things to match our of various audiotakes is really a no go and becomes increasingly more difficult when times passes. (imagine a 65 year old man portraying the voice of a 15 year old. same guy did both voice overs however he is in no way able to replicate the voice he did 50 years earlier)

    so basicly when they added MMCR wich includes the same NPC that needed new bits of voice acting they did a complete retake of the previous audio too.

    They changed Neek's voice for DD/MDD/CR/MCR because they wanted to include Neek in ID.
    However, I can only assume that the voice actor changed. This is usually, amongst other reasons, due to:
    1. The original voice actor was no longer interested in doing the part; busy with another project that had a contract where he couldn't do voice acting for other companies for a certain periods of time; he wanted more pay but Trion said no; or

    2. The original voice actor has met an unfortunate accident/old age and it has become impossible for him to do further voice acting.

    This makes sense...I'm glad I read this thread. I had been questioning the validity of revisiting voice content on an old instance when there's so many other nits that need picking.
