Ok... i had a similar thread to this a while back on tomb raider general discussion... but now i want to know! Is keeley going to voice lara?! she'd better.:scratch: what are your thoughts on this?

Danielsun_
6th Mar 2010, 13:44
i want keeley to voice lara and alison to continue the motion capture

but im not sure if it will be keeley voicing this new game the side game that comes out in summer it woudn't of had as much of a budget, i hope alison and keeley are in the next TR game but as for this lara croft game i dont know xD

tombraidergal
6th Mar 2010, 13:46
ahhh!!! it would be annoying if they jump back and forth between actresses and models. but meh... i don't really know. :S i think keeley would be great still, i just hope they keep her!

Danielsun_
6th Mar 2010, 13:54

I actually forgot all about the voice actors when thinking about this game. Seeing as I read that they're focusing more on gameplay and that it has a arcade feel to it, I've just expected classic text based narration! ^.^;

Danielsun_

thank youuuu!! :D

And ooo Keir i didnt know you spoke french (just saw the facebook page :p)

As long as she is British, she can act and she has a nice, clear voice. :)

6th Mar 2010, 20:57
keeley can do all of that :D

I wouldn't be surprised if she wasn't voiced at all and instead had rolling text.

Well Keeley cause I've always thought she was pretty cool before TR and I just hate it if they have a new actress voice her and then have Keeley back for say the next TR. Make sense?:scratch:

I always have this kind of rant when someone brings it up but to me having a different voice actor takes me out of the game and in a way ruins the experience.

Lara should have a northern accent!:lol:

I'm not Scottish, some people may think it when I talk English, because my English accent resembles an Scottish one. I'm an Lithuanian at blood.

Aww I really want to listen to their voice work now, especially if one of the guys sounds like Kermit the frog! The person who's been voicing Lara should really try to do a Miss Piggy impression; then it'll be perfect. :p

Don't even GO THERE! :lol:

I live in the north and was born in cambridgeshire though, i got a northener accent! and where i live they got it worse.

imagine lara saying 'A fink the artifact is o'ver theer above that big fingy. nah a dunno why people say we talk lark shakespear. i dunt even lek art any moor.'

Speaking:
o'ver (o pronnounced like a lower case O)
Theer (thee-er)
Lark (lark)
moor (moo-er)

ha ha. come up north you won't know what anybody is on about!
(i don't actually speak like that, but i know people who do):nut:

But Birmingham isn't in the North, like you said it's in the Midlands!

I live in the North West and it isn't that bad; sure we have our fair share of Chavs but it's impossible to escape them, no matter what region you live in. :hmm:

Anyway, it would be funny if she had a Northern accent and maybe used some Wigan dialect, because that'll definitely confuse some people!

Here's web page explaining some of our dialect! XD (http://www.wiganworld.co.uk/stuff/dialect1.php?opt=dialect1)

Unlockables:

Be yourself! - Awarded for completing the whole game with Lara only. Unlocks Lara in Scottish Accent

Oy mate, I'm too lazy to climb that 'ege - Awarded after completing the game with Totec only. Unlocks all the characters talking in a very high, Brittish accent. Voiced by Eidos.

But I feel like celebratin' - Awarded for killing 10 mobs in 5 minutes. Q Continuim does the voice for the whole game.

I DON'T! Kill only 2 mobs in the whole game. Unlocks Keir and Jay doing the voices.

Dun dun dun dun dun dun! Kill only bats in the game, and find the hidden Bat-Symbol. Unlocks Batman Totec costume, and Kevin Conroy does Lara's voice.

Losing the faith in life. Unlocked after starting a new game, and after achieving all of the above Achievements. It unlocks voiceacting by the whole TR crew, Eric Lindstrom Outfit for Lara, and a brand new level. With unicorns, rainbows and Leprichauns, making it so shiny and pretty that even the gayest man in the world would step back and watch in awe and you'll never want to eat magic mushrooms or take acid again.

The darkness in the end of the tunell. Unlocks Level Editor. To achieve this, you must do the following:

Complete the game,
Start a new game,
Acheive all of the achievements,
Sit down, take a deep sigh, load the revovler and shoot yourself in the foot.
Realize you have no life,
Yell at the game.

This unlocks a new special level which a highly drunk Keir designed because he could. No spoilers here. Complete it, and you've unlocked the level editor.


And by the looks of it, I already played the game.

I'm sorry I'll stop now:lol:

I love the modern dictionary!

A vote for a chav is a vote for Lara! - that has nothing really to do with anything but it had the word chav in it so I wanted to use it. I really have nothing against chavs cause they don't bother me so I don't mean to offend! Anyway, yes I want Keeley to stay, failing that we have ashes in April again.

'hmmm un educated violent people...'

I can't tell you how long it actually took me to read that modern slang; it sounded like I was trying to learn how to read again! O.O

Yeah, I don't personally have anything against chavs (mostly because that phase of everybody fearing about them and always being on the news as been and gone); but the way we look at them is more of a stereotype thing now, so I don't think you've offended anyone. :)

Keir, you must go and suggest that the original Crystal voice-acting be an unlockable feature within the game. Even if it be in a hidden location within the game, like an easter egg. If you are at work while reading this, please get off your chair and do it now.

Thank you. :D

:rasp:

@Danielsun - Yeah lets carry on that other conversation. Where was I?

Now I remember. I do like Lara as a strong female cause my family has always given out more strong females than males (with my mum being a single parent and all that)so I think I feel somewhat 'proud' of strong female characters. Now I also hate her cause compared to some of my other favourite females she's just too perfect and too underdeveloped...

So Keeley fits in cause she is underlying thread that runs underneath all of that above!:D

Danielsun_
8th Mar 2010, 11:23
indeed consistency is a big part with character development keeley should stay so we have a consistent voice actor but the devs. certainly need to add more depth to lara, if they do this when she goes through a hard time, a good time or a tense moment which has you on the edge of your seat going..come on you can do it! (MGS) :D Then it will definatly be worth it :D

I think every society has their own 'chav'. But just under different names and with different trademark qualities. :p

If their getting voice acting it probably means we'll get some nice cutscenes in the game. :)

So we went -as you said Danielsun- from talking about who'll be voicing Lara this time, to talking about chavs or Lara being a chav!:lol::nut:

I really do like conversations, they make me smile.

As far as voice actors go, Keeley for the win!:D

Ok... i had a similar thread to this a while back on tomb raider general discussion... but now i want to know! Is keeley going to voice lara?! she'd better.:scratch: what are your thoughts on this?

I've played some of the classic games but now I'm accustomed to Keeley Hawes. I hope they lock her for the role again. If not, I won't get upset. As long as Lara's not mute. :D

Heavy Rain characters, yay!:D

Voice acting ain't the greatest in HR but I think it is the storyline that pulls off the HR characters. That makes me wonder, maybe Keeley should do the mo-cap for some of it? Like the HR cast do, the voice actors also do the mo-cap.:scratch:

But... I still don't know what a Chav is.... :o I live in Texas, where none of these English names really trickle through. (I do hope that y'all are referring to something in England... That would be slightly embarassing if y'all were talking about something I should know......) I mean, is it like a redneck? These are the people that make us look like stupid farmers and that we all ride horses to school and they chew tabacco and like none of us can hold a conversation without spitting in a metal pot.....

Danielsun_
12th Mar 2010, 12:00
lol rednecks and chavs could be alike but no we dont have rednecks in england going round saying 'They took our jerbs!!!' :D

a chav can be anyone is like a social standing, you know what an emo, goth, rude boi or trendy is?

Chav is an ill educated, foul mouthed, violent aggressive and usually wears tracksuits here is a picture

I think Claudia Black is good at voice acting too... maybe not a fit for Lara but she's great as Chloe in Among Thieves!

P.S. I'm not being horrible to the North cause I'm born and bred there... well north west but still I think you'd class it as north!?

Yeah, she is (then again all voice actors on that game are pretty good!) but I really can't imagine her voicing Lara!

I agree Claudia probably wouldn't fit as Lara but she is pretty darn sweet... then again they all are as you said!:D Anyway, yes I say keep Keeley... yay, ashes starts again on the 23rd I think... More Keeley goodness!!

Cool, so the new series of Ashes To Ashes definitely starts on the 23rd? I'll watch it although I really do prefer Life On Mars (sorry Keeley fans!).

And yes the North is awesome... mostly because I live there! :p Hehe, I kid. ^.~

Oh dear, we really have gone off-topic! But I guess that's there's not much to talk about if we all think that Keeley Hawes is still the current voice actress for Lara. :o

I wouldn't quote me 100% but that's what the BBC first said so I suppose it will probably be true?

I loved life on mars but they said that ashes series 3 will answer the questions left over from life... And what happened to Mr. John Simm(Sam Tyler):eek:

We'll just have to check our tele mags next week to see if it's true. :)

But to be honest I really liked the ambiguous ending to Life On Mars. I'd rather assume what happened to Sam Tyler after the events of Life On Mars myself, rather than to be told by someone else... I don't know, maybe it's just me who thinks that way. ^.^;

@lilhanhan - well we are still technically on topic cause we're still talking about Keeley who we hope(the point of the thread) will continue her role as Lara. All we are doing is making conversation which still involves Keeley?!:D

Hello everybody !

I'm french, then I don't know the english voice of Lara, I just know that she's been changed until the very first game. But, us, in France, we're lucky, because Françoise Cadol, which is one of the greatest voice actress (she has a very particular voice), was the voice of Lara in all the TR games, from TR1 to TRU, and she's just so great... Could you bring me a video of TR with actual Lara's english voice ?

Danielsun_
14th Mar 2010, 12:37
there we go

here is a cutscene from TRunderworld with our beloved Keeley :D

NicoCroft
14th Mar 2010, 12:46
Well, the english voice is pretty good too, but I prefer the french version (maybe because I always heard Lara with Françoise Cadol's voice), here is the same video in french : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxCmTtwQd1M&feature=related. And is Keeley Hawes' voice different of the first one (I think it's Judith Gibbins) ?

Danielsun_
14th Mar 2010, 13:28
ooo cheers for the link, i do prefer keeley imo she has that softer charm i like

Keeley has voice TRL, TRA and TRU the games before that had a different voice actor each time, im hoping they keep Alison Carrol as the motion capture/model because they usually change the model each game aswell :(

@lilhanhan : I don't know what bad-ass mean, can you give me another adjective :D

Danielsun_
14th Mar 2010, 14:05
yeah it sucked because we could never really connect with the character as she never had the same voice only the past 3 games she has had the same voice so we can connect im hopinh keeley stays on for a long time :)

@lilhanhan : I don't know what bad-ass mean, can you give me another adjective :D

Well not for each time, but we have had our fair share of voice actresses (we've had four so far)...

TR1- Shelley Blond
TR2/TR3- Judith Gibbins
TR4/TR5/TR6- Jonell Elliott
TRL/TRA/TRU-Keeley Hawes

So you're very lucky with keeping the same voice actress!

Oh, and "bad-ass" means when your acting cool and tough. :)

NicoCroft
14th Mar 2010, 14:20
Ok, then it means that you like the french voice, I didn't understand that point ^^.

But, 4 different voices !! I do understand that you could'nt identify yourself to the character of Lara... On the opposite, in France, the voice of Lara is an integrant part of the series, she's been the same for all the games, even for the movies, so it's really important that she stays game after game.

Danielsun_
14th Mar 2010, 14:27
well you're lucky then we can only hope that we get keeley hawes, it is never cemented whether we get to keep the same voice actor lol

if they make keeley the future actress i will be very happy :)

Haha that sounds awesome in French! :D I think we're missing out guys. She must have a large reputation in France for voicing Lara then. She was in the height of TR as well, and has always been Lara. That would make the voice very identified. :cool:

I think Keely is great on Ashes to ashes. I am still a tiny bit unconvinced to her as a permant vioce for Lara though. For me there was more sharpness to the earlier voices for Lara. I think maybe that Judith or Jonell got across Lara's emotion, wit and rage better than Keely. Lara's angry side didn't seem convincing with Keely doing the voice.

I wouldn't be unhappy though if Keely was doing the voice for the next game though. I think she will be.

I admit I loved Keeley before she strated voicing Lara but am I the only one that feels somewhat let down by her voicing Lara now? Not let down by Keeley!

This comes after last nights ashes to ashes.

I love Keeley and its not her fault (she's awesome) but the writers fault... Lara never gets to be involved in banter between characters.:(

I still want her to stay and am gald that she is!:cool:

I think she is great but she somehow needs to put more 'attitude' in her voice, which she does really great in some cutscenes (Andaman Sea, Croft Manor). And yeah, the script could have been better but it wasn't bad at all, the dialogue in TRU was really good. I loved the parts between Lara and Natla, like:

Lara: "Jaqueline Natla, you just don't know when to die!"
Natla: "It's a trait we have in common."

I suppose my meaning is that the banter between Gene Hunt and Alex Drake is awesome cause both he and she pull it off brilliantly.

I think they need someone there pretty much most of the time that this could happen... like zip for example... he isn't funny but exchange that for witty banter and throw it back and forth between the two.:D

The script lately has given Lara sarcastic attitude but it's normally quite light and funny. She use to also use it in a more kick butt kinda way. So that's been lacking lately.
