MTV Multiplayer: The Voice Of Deckard Cain
Gough: Well, I did more than [what was shown at the Blizzard Worldwide Invitational in Paris]. I hope there’s more, but I did a pretty fair amount. It was just one or two four-hour sessions but there was a lot. It was definitely more than what you’ve seen in the preview. I’m not sure when it’s release date is targeted for, but yeah it seems like there’s going to be a fair amount of Deckard Cain, which is always a good thing. [laughs]
On screaming too much in some video games:
Gough: Something like Deckard Cain is great; it doesn’t ruin your voice. But games that involve violence or battle or mutating and stuff like that really does take a toll on your voice. And I’ve even had to start to go to a voice guru kind of guy to do exercises to try to save and get back some of what I lost. When you’re doing games like that there’s so much screaming and yelling, and you have to do it over and over and over again. They’ll say, “Okay now you’re being burned alive and you have to do it short, medium and long and then really long. Now you’re being choked to death. Now you’re drowning in lava.” So you do many different takes, dying all these different deaths. It’s fun but after a while, I was damaging my voice doing a lot of that. For “ Call of Duty ,” a lot of the dialogue is shouting over battle that’s going on: “Incoming! Flank left!” It’s just a lot of yelling.
