The thing about enemies of the state, right, is that they like to disguise their identities by altering the pitch of their voices. That’s sort of their prerogative. But I can’t help but feel that their consistent leanings towards the bassier end of the scale – the choice of Sauron and unambiguous evil – only contributes to their unerring ability to attract men like Sam Fisher. Perhaps if they went higher, aimed for shrill or irritating, they’d live a little longer?
Speaking of abilities, Splinter Cell: Blacklist’s new ‘Abilities’ trailer features a pitch-bent voiceover from a likely villain. I wonder which way they’ll go?
Sam’s abilities, incidentally, are listed as ‘Stalk’, ‘Strike’, and ‘Silence’, though I’m sure that last one is more of a symptom. Anyway. This game look any good to you?
