Hi, I'm The Voice Of Tyl Regor

Recommended Posts

Incidentally, this is precisely how not to write a negative review.

 

You don't like his voice. That's fine. You're passionate about voice acting, and you're very particular about voices. That's fine.

 

But saying no one else can honestly like it - that the only reason they react positively is because of some form of self-delusion and celebrity blindness - that, on the other hand, is ridiculous.

 

 

You don't know how the internet hivemind works.

 

When people tell you something is good (or bad), you will convince yourself it's good, to a form of mass hysteria.

 

Notable examples:

 

1) GTA5

 

2) Skyrim

 

3) All those videogames that are the greatest thing ever when released, and suddenly get forgotten when the mass hysteria ends (i.e. Bioshock Infinite)

 

4) The movie Avatar

 

5) Etc.

I'm pretty certain the reason people are so pleased about Tyl's voiceacting is merely because they heard he was the first external, professional voiceactor called for the game - so they convinced themselves his voice is good.

Tyl's voice leaves me unimpressed, and I fail to see why some people talk so much about it.

It leaves you unimpressed

Doesnt mean it doesnt leave others impressed does it?

Also youre ignoring the ppl who had no idea that Tyl was voiced by and external voice actor and realized only after reading this post?

Which seems to be quite a lot judging from this thread

Edit: so youre saying its just the bandwagon effect taking place

It work the other way around too

It could be also said that youre just under the snob effect?(no offense just saying it goes both ways)

For the record, I had basically no idea who the VA was until after I went through Tubemen and decided I liked the voice. I also liked Anyo's voice long before I ever found out it was the same guy.

 

Then again, elitism must trump all, I suppose.

So, you are saying that I can't like anything that the masses liked because I just follow the said masses? That I'm convinced to like something? I'm sorry (not really), but that's ridiculously stupid.

And that's not the first time I'VE heard it from players.

I think we never truly hear an original character ... we always tend to look toward who or what it sounds like (or could be inspired by).

I'm just happy to hear someone thinks Tyl sounds like a Disney character!

 

I've always been fascinated by voice acting. Early one when I found out all the Looney Tunes were done by Mel Blanc for a very long time, and then later when I noticed many of my favorite characters sounded similar to other characters I had previously seen. Jim Cummings is probably one of the most talented voice actors alive today. I mean, he's done characters everywhere from Darkwing Duck, to Winnie the Pooh.

 

I am 100% serious about Captain Gantu. Play some voice clips side by side. It's not an exact match, but there is definitely a large resemblance. Having been playing Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep recently I had already been hearing his voice quite a bit, and then immediately playing Warframe with the Tubemen event right after was actually pretty funny. 

 

Did they TELL YOU to make it sound like Regor was shipping Lotus and the thing in the tomb during Natah? Because that's what it sounded like to me:

 

 

 

ALL that was missing was the winky face.

Holy crap...

 

I'll take that as a shocked agreement.

 

Don't you mind him, the Hammer Time line was golden.

 

Definitely, although I feel they missed an opportunity here to make the fight even funnier. With all of that teleporting he should have also said at some point "can't touch this". XD

You silly goose. It's called camp ^_^

 

I love all the voice acting for all the characters. Tyl Regor, Salad V, Sargas Ruk, Bay Hek, Frohd Behk. Even Kela de Thaym's monstrous screeching ^_^

 

The more campy and over-acted the better it is for me 

 

Tyl Regor is extremely over-acted. I suppose people here confuse "liking the character" with "liking the voiceactor's talent".

 

Frankly, I'm not impressed by his voice, and I don't think his voice is any better than the other characters'.

 

I'm pretty certain the reason people are so pleased about Tyl's voiceacting is merely because they heard he was the first external, professional voiceactor called for the game - so they convinced themselves his voice is good.

 

Me? I'm a voiceacting addict. Checking out voiceactors and making comparisons is my hobby - a hobby that probably comes from my studies, as I am an Italian with a bachelor's degree in Japanese language and a master in English language (basically: languages, words and speeches are my passion).

Tyl's voice leaves me unimpressed, and I fail to see why some people talk so much about it.

Like you I've always been fascinated by voice acting. VoiceActingNinja is not the best voice actor out there, but he has done a good job with Tyl Regor. Definitely the best voiced character in the game IMO. Nef Anyo is annoying, but the voice seems to fit the part well enough. Vay Hek grates on my nerves. Lotus is average. Darvo is pretty good. Ordis is decent. Then there are many others that all fall in the average category with Lotus. Most of those being Syndicate leaders(Arbiters of Hexis leader is pretty good though).

 

Characters are actually supposed to be overacted depending on who they are, and what is expected of them(think the Praying Mantis from A Bug's Life, or Captain Kirk from the old Star Trek: The Animated Series(of course he  was just as overacted in the live version)). So, that's not a point against the voice acting, but against the character itself, something you complain other people are confusing voice talent with.

 

Now, it's been a while since I heard some of the lines. I seem to remember one or two  lines sounding a bit forced, but I'd have to go back and listen to make sure. 

 

To me, Tyl Regor's voice fits the character, it's not strained, and it's not devoid of emotion. For the most part it actually sounds like real acting should. It's not perfect, but I don't expect that from anyone. Even Jim Cummings, a favorite of mine, doesn't sound as good as he used to. I saw a video of him reading lines from Star Wars using his Winnie the Pooh, and Darkwing Duck voices, and his Darkwing Duck sounded way off compared to the old show.

 

Of course, maybe I'm biased. I always liked Captain Gantu's voice from Lilo and Stich, and Tyl Regor sounds remarkably like him.

Tyl Regor sounded to me like a less theatrical and more scientifically obsessed V for Vendetta with an overpowering urge to kill.

 

^_^

 

It's like, when Tyl Regor wakes up in the morning, the first thing he has to do is kill something before even drinking his coffee.

I have to say it's because of Tyl Regor's voice and dialog which makes him my current favorite enemy in all of Warframe as of right now. I can tell that he had a ball doing the voice. It's so fun listening to Tyl Regor sadistically talk about how he thinks he can beat us that I have probably fought him nearly 20 times and not bord yet.

I know that's a joke, but IMO it goes too far. 

 

Yes it was a joke, don't take it too seriously.

First off, thank you for your opinion. Seriously, it's truly a welcomed read.

 

If everyone who responded to this was in favor of Tyl's characterization, I think it would be an unfair representation of the public. There's no way everyone can be happy with a character's performance ... so it's very humbling to hear opinions from the other side of the fence.

 

That being said:

 - What would you like to hear different?

 - How do you feel the character could be improved?

 - What aspects of the character are lacking?

 - Where would you, as a creative director, make the necessary changes so he could appeal to a larger cross-section of the community?

 

These are the kinds of questions that any creative team would ask themselves to help further develop the voice, writing, lore or any other specific detail of a character. As I've read from your previous posts, I haven't seen much constructive criticism... and noting your post where you stated about your "addiciton"/love of voice acting, you should be aware that no voice actor should be shy of receiving criticism ... as long as that criticism is constructive, unbiased and meant to encourage creative growth. I'm no different; I'm always open to hearing what listeners have to say about a character, be it good or bad... again, as long as it's a step toward nurturing a more well-developed creation.

 

I look forward to reading your reply.

 

Regards,

 - Lucas Schuneman (voice of Tyl Regor and Nef Anyo in Warframe)

More polite response than I'd have given. Whenever someone tells you that you really only like something because of the "internet hive mind", I don't think there's any more discussion to be had.

For the record, the reason I like Tyl's voice is because it manages to carry a combination of intelligence, personal charisma, and serious mental imbalance all at the same time. It's a distinct, singular voice that goes beyond filling the required role.

 Well that's no reason to be rude to anyone.

My mindset to the Internet has always been focused on a "civil exchange" format.

No reason to stop now.

 

 

 

I'm speaking solely for myself, obviously. Tyl Regor is an a**hole online.

So, basically, you are Tyl Regor in real life?

I'm also 99% certain you're not the first professional voice actor to hit Warframe. The VA for Simaris sounds really familiar, I just can't place him (and judging by my Google results, neither can anyone else).
