    I might just be remembering it wrong but it seems like whoever is in charge of distorting SHODAN's voice is really going fucking overboard. It's like, she doesn't have to stutter eighteen times every third word and shift her pitch wildly every fourth word. Maybe that's how it was in the original though. It's been a while.

    SHODAN is pretty close to what I remember, but this version is a bit more stuttery.

    I haven't played through much of SS1, but someone was claiming that SHODAN's vocal distortion was different between 1 and 2. I'm more familiar with 2's myself and it's definitely a bit different than that.

  • azith28azith28 Registered User regular
    Eh, the stutter does not bother me, and i think its more because you are hearing her speak more in a small amount of time compared to the rare moments you got to hear her in the game. I do think some of the high tones are a bit off from the original, but its early.

    I mean, that's got a lot less stuttering, pitch shifting, etc. to my ears. But maybe I am odd. Like, compare this to the latest thing: it still has pitch shifting and stuff but it doesn't sound like she's gulped helium for half of the VO session.

    I think it is the time frame thing

    That clip is only 21 seconds long and there's a lot more in the demo video.

    Which reminds me I convinced some friends who have never played System Shock to watch that youtube complilation video of SHODANs face that strings together all of the messages from SS2 in the dark on a 70" tv

    They started off kinda laughing about haha this is so dumb

    But that stopped gradually and before the video was over one of them literally said "fuck this shit", turned it off and left the room.

    SHODAN confirmed as still super screepy

    Starbreeze Publishing signs OtherSide Entertainment’s System Shock 3

    Starbreeze, an independent creator, publisher and distributor of high quality entertainment products, has signed a publishing agreement with Otherside Entertainment regarding the game System Shock 3. Starbreeze will invest $12 million to bring the game to PC and other platforms.

    “System Shock is one of those iconic franchises in the history of games that still gets my blood going and Mr. Spector is one of the founding fathers of the modern action RPG” said Bo Andersson-Klint, Starbreeze CEO. “We’re greatly looking forward to bringing System Shock 3 to players world wide in our collaboration with Otherside Entertainment and Warren Spector’s team. I’ll be first in line to play”.

    “We are thrilled to be partnering with Starbreeze for System Shock 3,” said OtherSide’s CEO Paul Neurath. They truly get games and gamers, and have been able to translate that understanding into a robust publishing business, and build thriving gaming communities around their franchises.”

    Starbreeze will be able to recoup 120% of its full investment including marketing costs. Starbreeze share of revenues will become 50% after the investment is recouped. Otherside Entertainement will retain 100% of the intellectual property relating to System Shock 3.

    Terri Brosius, the original voice actress, also did all yhe processing for SHODAN's voice in that video.

    I think the new trailer IS going overboard with it. I'm very familiar with SHODAN's voice, and the trailer has a LOT more post-processing. I think part of it is higher audio quality in general makes the stuttering more jarring, but it's been pumped up.

    HOWEVER

    I think the pumping-up may just be for the trailer's sake to make her even more menacing.

    I really like the new artwork they've used for her in the trailer, incidentally.

    Could you change the title to refer to SS3? this story needs more traffic.

    And she didn't do a particularly restrained job, if you ask me!

    The hacker's work is finished, but hers is only just beginning.

    It was that somehow, from within the derelict-horror, they had learned a way to see inside an ugly, broken thing... And take away its pain.

    Hmm. A little too much gory body-horror for me, if this is all supposed to be Shodan's doing.

    Shodan wouldn't hook you up to a robot exoskeleton and leave your entrails dangling. She would excise all that wasteful, useless flesh and leave you a pristine, seamless, cyborg monstrosity. Perfect and clean.

    Leave all that blood and organs and dilating sphincter stuff to the pathetic worms. They don't know any better because they can't. How could they? Their minds are just meat, after all.

    Gosh I love Shodan. The only thing that really sold me in that trailer was hearing that character, and that was pretty much all I needed.

    I am extremely ready for my Goddess and Queen to just step on me for the entire game

    (I'm not exaggerating when I say SS1 & 2 were part of my bisexual awakening to "holy fuck, girls are HOT")

    "You are a remarkable example of a pathetic species." was always my fav. I remember saving/reloading and playing so hard to save those people from that cortex reaver on that one level in SS1 before accepting it wasn't possible.

    But that was literally a cortex reaver.
