The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...


Sutherland on Voicing Snake in Metal Gear: "I’m Talking, and I Start Sounding Like Tom Waits"

Posted on Friday, February 7 @ 07:46:12 PST by Alex_Osborn

Hollywood star Kiefer Sutherland recently shared his thoughts on being the voice of Snake in the upcoming Metal Gear Solid titles Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain.

Speaking to IGN, he discussed the technology of it all, noting that the motion capture process was particularly amazing.
You know, I've got, like, 50 metal dots on my face, 50 cameras recording my every facial movement. The process and the technology and what I have to go through just to do a line, and what the engineers and technicians have to do, it's unbelievable. But then when I saw it… There was a guy who was applying the dots and was just in charge of that part, and he was making his own game; he's some technical wizard, and this game is supposed to be really cool.

But they were showing us some stuff that they had just finished in Japan, and they were showing it back to us. It was this one little clip that’s final, final, final, and it's me on a horse. I'm riding the horse, and then I go from a run to a lope to a walk, and then standing still. I don't know a lot about games, so I'm watching it, and the guy who's watching it with me goes, ‘Oh my God. Your ears moved.’ Then he was looking at the throat, and he said, ‘You can see the pulse.’ I mean, it was so real, and all I kept thinking was, ‘This is how they're going to make movies soon.’ They're halfway there now, you know, but they're going to make films like this. This is not far off.

Sutherland then went on to speak to the experience of actually voicing Snake, saying, "The character is one of the few things that they say is, 'Lower!'... I’m talking, and I start sounding like Tom Waits. But I've really enjoyed it, and they're really good people."

Do you think Sutherland will end up making a good Snake?
