Stolen Pixels #245: Tycho Brahe

 Pages PREV 1 2 3
 

What I can't get over is that they used a voice actor for Tycho, rather than the dude's real voice. I guess they wanted him to sound sultry, or something?

Maybe I'm just bitter that by the time I get a copy of the Orange Box, beautiful TF2 items like the Iron Curtain will be beyond my grasp forever.

Shamus Young:
Wallace (Wallace & Gromit show. Yeah, Gromit would be the better poker player, but his lack of voice would impair his ability to engage in humorous banter.)

Are you kidding? Gromit could get way more banter across with his eyes alone than that bumbling twit. I mean, humourous banter isn't just about the dialog. I think Gromit's silent discussions would be rather good!

I'd prefer if they would instead add characters from the same universe as the current ones: Sam, Homestar, Demoman and Gabe.

haha! Brilliant... honestly, if everything else fell off the escapist, I'd still come just for Stolen Pixels :D

Agatha Heterodyne?! Very awesome. Heh, Phil & Kaja Foglio are quirky enough that they just might go for something like that. They'd probably shriek with glee at a reason for a 1 off animation of Agatha. Crazy Sparks.

Shamus, you guys should totally drop them a line.

Yes! Roger Wilco should definitely join them!

"The Heavy tastes just as good as he looks"

StriderShinryu:
What they really need to do is make an Escapist game like this that features characters and columnists from Escapist exclusive content.

Is that including Calumon?

Sargent Schlock from Schlock Mercenary!

Oooh! The Wizard from Trine!

Death from Discworld?

The possibilities are endless! All it would take is for Telltale to sell a modding tool for their pokernight game!

Are you hearing me Telltale? Are you HEARING ME NOW?!

Shamus knows Order of the Stick?! Kudos to your sir! Though I'd prefer Belkar to Elan

God no, anything but that.

I actually didn't like the inclusion of Tycho and Strong Bad in Poker Night. I didn't even know what a "Strong Bad" was prior to playing it. They should stick with videogame characters.

But yes, Larry sounds like a good idea. So long as Al Lowe writes the dialog.

Strong Bad is a videogame character.

Itīs all about dream teams: Eddie Riggs, to face Heavy, Nelson Tethers to find great solutions for common situations, Critical Miss Miss, GLadOS for happiness and danger, The Commander from Manly Guys, Gabe, Lady of the Lake from Doraleous,Sir Schmoopy from Unforgotten Realms.
A table with Critical Miss, Lady ot Lake, ZP Yathzee and Glados? well, I hope they creat mod tools for this game, so we can see some nice new stuff.

needs more text with their webcomic lol

Gordon Freeman...

Yes he wouldn't say a word, and be totally expressionless. But imagine the amount of rage other players would have with this mute player!

Also, would love to see another TF2 character, I'd say the Engineer being texan and all, but I think he'd clash with the heavy a little bit too much!

A Monkey Island Character would be pretty funky, maybe Stan?

Be great to turn it into a whole multitable tournament.

Tycho does have quite the lexicon...

The_root_of_all_evil:
I like this idea...I like all the suggested personalities, but....

Elan?

Are you sure... you do know his pun-ishing ability exceeds even mine.

I'd much prefer Roy and Hayley at the table. Especially self-loathing Hayley.

Actually, Varsuvius could beat Tycho in a big word contest. Especially given that runes can be put on poker cards quite easily.

OH! Varsuvius would be hilarious at the poker table! Sure they've all been done in OOTS before but Max would have a field day trying to figure out her(?) his(?) gender. Then i can definitely see some intellectual fencing between Varsuvius and Tycho.

You've not heard the Heavy's Engineer story? No...I don't believe he will be joining them.

I have heard that story, hense why I think they'd clash a bit too much!

Might just have to be another Red character, however much I'd love a Blu TF2 charater. (Or heavens forbid, they stick in the announcer or Saxton Hale!)

Sometimes I think he goes out of his way to "sound smart". I know all the words he's using. I just find them unnecessary for everyday use. That said, hah Brent Sienna and Wallace would be excellent choices. You know, I'd Also love to see Flintlock show up at the table.

He does have an impressive vocabulary but it generally seems forced. It's like seeing a lion in a suburb rather than it's grassland habitat.

Mordwyl:

This is a good idea, but I think the Scout would be better than the Demoman.

Or moreover a character from Homestar Runner (.com). Which hasn't updated properly in ages. I miss that place.

Gromit would be better than Wallace. I know he wouldn't be able to banter, but his expressions and reactions to what the others would say would be priceless.

Like all things in life, Stolen Pixels would be better with less Penny Arcade

Now, when you say Roger Wilco, do you include the Narrator? Because, that would make it 2000 percent more amazing!

So you wish that Child's play didnt exist? Or pax for that matter.

I wish the comic was remotely funny (Penny Arcade).

Ah, that's ok then :), that is your opinion and i respect it.

Any suggestions on who to voice Agatha? Someone who's good at doing Agatha and Lucrezia's voice (You know, because of the whole "being possessed by her mother's spirit" thing?)

I'm hoping Zeetha shows up too. And Higgs.
