  Transforming robots, next-gen consoles

I played a few rounds of the new Robotech:Battlecry game last night with Jos. The game is fairly good-- much better in single-player (story) than 2-player (vs.)-- but has a lot of minor design flaws that point to a rush job. The original voice actors from the animated series make a repeat performace for the game, which isn't necessarily a good thing...
Next on the transforming robot lineup, and from the same decade, the Transformers appear to be coming to a modern console near you.

long live the piss poor voice talent of the anime industry! Cam Clarke (Max Sterling) is my hero. Just in the last few months I've discovered his talent in Neverwinter Nights, X-Wing Alliance and the craptastic new He-Man cartoon (as both adam and heman) the guy gets around. he's in *everything*

yeah, that Cam Clarke is a busy guy- I think he was in Metal Gear as Otacon as well.

I think he did several voices in metal gear. he was liquid snake and the guy he was pretending to be as well. but of course we'll all remember him as the voice of leonardo in the TMNT cartoon (or the teenage mutant "hero" turtles cartoon in the UK)
