Added some miscellaneous Combine test voices based off the few lines that Ennui posted in another VA's thread. Thought i'd try and maintain a clear enough voice to be heard while emulating a masked radio effect. I stuck to my native British accent for this one and put my own little spin on the style, because I sure as hell wasn't going to risk insulting anyone by trying to do any American accents :lol:

This voice was mainly geared to have a fairly direct, in the field sound. Not quite so mumble like as the regular Combine forces.

EDIT: Added additional voice clips

If there indeed are any specific voices or voice styles you would like me to try by all means hit me with em and i'll record some samples =)

I'm afraid the British accent (as awesome as it is :P) wouldn't work right for the Combine, since all of Valve's voice acting is typically with an American accent and we try to avoid anything that might detract from making the game feel like an authentic Half-Life 2 experience.

That being said I listened to some of your 40k stuff on Soundcloud and it was great. We might consider adding new units like Odessa Cubbage which you would be perfect for.

Hey that's no problem bud, thanks for the response =). But by all means the offer still stands should you require my services for whatever character / scenario / project you have in mind.

Thanks again =)

Wow, you stuff is fantastic George! I wouldn't have worried about the American accent, the stuff you did for Archon Tank in an American accent was great. And your stuff for Chaos War Machine is really really well done! Fantastic!

I do really like your Combine voices, it just needs some nice filter and maybe be a bit slower. :D

I appreciate your comments folks, I do try to really get stuck into roles and voices =). If anything does crop up that you would like me to voice I will happily modify my delivery and voice to better suit, those lines I did were a really quick thing I did just to sort of test it out for myself as well =).

I loved all your voice acting! It's so well edited and sounds professional.
It looks like you can speak a lot more accents apart from British and German :P (if I am not mistaken, cf Rise of the Reds mod - Misc Support power voices). Also you got the Russian accent pretty well :P, except it sounds more English than Russian :D

To the dev team: Perhaps give some voice acting to some specific units too?
Mr. Darkness: fucking game
Sandern: yeah, game sucks
Mr. Darkness: ya, the devs must be some total twats
Mr. Darkness: Who even names a game like that
Mr. Darkness: "Lambda Wars"
Mr. Darkness: fucking pathetic
Mr. Darkness: right?
Sandern: yes

Well i'm certainly not gonna try and convince myself I sound even remotely Russian, or any other nationality for that matter :roll:. I've learned a lot more about my range since I recorded some of those and I tend to get a character in mind rather than try and outright mimic an accent, usually comes off better overall.

And those support powers were intended to be a somewhat generic (and undoubtedly dodgy) Eastern / Chinese sort of accent. Believe it or not that's sort of the style the official Chinese faction has, I'm told they actually fit in with the other units from C&C Generals weirdly enough, but i'll let the other dev team members be the judge of that :lol:
