Am I crazy or are some of these TESO characters voiced by sound-alikes? I could swear that Shegorath is a different actor. Is this true or am I way off?

Maybe but it sucks. Did the original actors die or something? Why replace one actor just to have another who sounds just like him or her? I've gotten attached to those actors in those roles, and to just replace them with sound-alikes seems smarmy.

Maybe the budget for this project din't cut out for them and they had to replace them... you haven't thought of that?

Or... maybe original voice actor decided "screw this shit, I'm going to Antarctica to study penguins!"


Which is more difficult: To do as you wish? Or to have power and choose not to?

In my experience, I've found penguins to be too stuck-up their own backsides to give one the time of day. Similar to the Altmer I'm so fond of for whatever reason...

I'd heard that this MMORPG was being built on a shoestring budget but I didn't realize how tiny it really was. The beta looks very low budget, so maybe the original actors just didn't want to be associated with it. All the money went to the Hollywood actors, none to the gameplay or anywhere else!

Source on how much the budget was. Source on how much the voice actors were paid. Please, use reliable sources as well, not "what this random guy said." Present this, then you might have an argument.

And the game looks low budget? How?

the game does NOT look low budget. the only thing i see that was corner cutting was the lack of motion capture. the charatcer animations are clunky and not fluid. games like WoW, Wildstar, SWTOR, GW2, and FFXIV all have smooth motion captured animations. its a shame that it was a missed opportunity.

but low budget? oh no. there was a rumor that was quickly debunked by Paul Sage that they had a 200mil USD budget. i'd say it was over 100mil though.
