Creative Christmas – New Year Swag

Tis the Christmas season (or Advent to be theologically accurate), and in the spirit of the season, the lovely blogger over at Later Levels has decided to celebrate the 12 Days of Christmas a few days earlier with 12 gaming related questions for all of us good, little gaming elves out there.  These are my responses.


👗   30 December 2017:   You’ve been invited to a swanky New Year’s Eve party but have nothing suitable to wear! Which video game character do you call to ask if you can borrow an outfit?

Luckily for me, I’ve already talked about this in my Fashionistas and Fancy Fellows post!  Of course they’re all from Final Fantasy, though I’ve noticed my favorite series either dresses its characters in the best get-ups…

30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 26

Best voice acting.


The Mass Effect Series.  When I first watched my husband play it, he did so with the male Shepherd, and I thought his voice was okay.  Then I watched it with Fem Shep and oh my lord, Jennifer Hale.  There’s just no comparison.  How anyone could play that game without picking Fem Shep is just beyond me.  Not that the guy is terrible, but her voice acting is just far more superior.

The entirety of the series is just peppered with amazing voice acting.  I mean they got Michael Dorn to voice a krogan and Marina Sirtis as Matriarch Benezia (an asari).  There’s also Claudia Black as one of the quarian admirals.  I’m not as familiar with her unfortunately, but her voice is gorgeous. There are parts of the games I go back to just for the sole purpose of hearing certain lines, because they’re that good.  The people they tapped for voice work were just perfect matches for whom they were portraying in the situations they found themselves.  Absolutely brilliant.

What game do you think has the best voice acting?  Who is your favorite voice actor in a game?
