    Default Patch 3.4: Into the Wilds Video Ad On MMO-Champion...

    I just watched Patch 3.4: Into the Wilds on MMO-Champion and read a couple of the player comments about the voice sound in the video.. I'll C&P a couple here to give an idea of the problem people are having with it.

    After hearing it, I'm going to add (with all due love and respect to the Devs) that the voice sounds like it should be asking for a 5 million dollar ransom instead of an ad for our beloved RIFT video game. (sorry)

    Kudos for trying to get more people to the game by getting the videos out there.. but it won't work if the people you are trying to reach don't know what you're saying.

    I did understand what was being said, and thought it was a good video.. but I'm well versed in RIFT voice overs by now.. I speak fluent RIFTeze..

    We're used to it, though, after hours of listening to Abyssal rantings that sound like they're gargling clam chowder.

    (I still think it's a good video.)

    OMG................It took me three times listening to finally understand what that "gargling" voice said....even though I am somewhat familiar with Rift voice overs, this is really bad.

    It sounds like someone is locked in a dungeon being filtered through a wet burlap bag placed over a broken mic.

    I think they did a great job with the video part of the video. The main bad guy voice is just a little hard to understand.. and it makes me want to try and send ransom money... just saying...

    Trion stopped trying years ago.

    Nothing new here.

    I smiled immediately upon hearing it, but I've been playing Rift since launch, so it's just a fun quirk to me.

    I think Rift voice acting should branch into mainstream commercials, tbh.
