Darn you're horribly effective all-star geektopian voice casting!
Now I'm hopelessly compelled to follow this game after all... *sigh*

Was thinking the same thing. My interest level just increased tenfold.

Me three! I've been very "meh" on this title, but the voice cast is solid gold!

Count me in!

That pick is hilarious to! I'm having a hard time imagining that dude's voice on Superman.

@Aganazer if you've seen Superman:Doomsday, that was Baldwin voicing supes.

Hopefully the game will be as good as the voice work

Definitely love the voice-cast. And the action-y gameplay sounds like a nice change of pace. And of course the PS3 participation makes this no slouch.

They obviously learned something from the wise moves of Batman Arkham asylum.

DCUO was already on my must have list. Now this just makes everything dreamy with this voice cast.

I think I might have to get the Collector's edition now.

Love the voice casting must say likewise as above hope the game is as worthy.

Yeah, that did it. This just went from a "we'll see" to a "must find cash for pre-order".

If they have a cash shop.... I hope they put Vera up as an item.

Ah hell yes. Awesome news!

It's hard to play games like CO and not wonder whether they just got the dev team to do voices.

Developers are becoming more intelligent on the benefits of professional/star voice casting.

This is really a massive boost for DCUO in the eyes of literally millions of fans.

Awesome Jayne reference. And Baldwin is super-cool in person too. I had a pic taken with him at DragonCon a few years back and he insisted on crouching to put himself in line with my shorter height because he thought my picture would come out better that way. Most of those folks don't tend to care but he was chuckling and cracking jokes the whole time.

They could get Adam West as Batman for all I care any more - ever since they offered preorder bonuses to everyone except the UK, me and my friends wont have anything to do with this.

Well, they've clearly learned from the immersion-breaking voiceover in EQ2 (where the acting was fine, since they got tons of veteran cartoon actors like Corey Burton and Steve Blum, but had them voice twelve chars each), but I'm still not crazy about VO in MMOs as a whole. It's faster to read, it keeps it in the same mode of output as your own speech, and to me it just feels more natural.

But then, as an RPer I am the furthest thing from this game's target demo anyway.
