Then we move on to talk about Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Nintendo’s online service, and your favorite re-creations of real-world cities.

  1. QotW: My favorite celeb cameo in a game is Gary Coleman in Postal 2 (I know, I know, terrible game)….it was random as hell and unexpected

  2. QotW: my favorite celebrity appearance in a video game is Keith David in Saints Row 4. But his role in the game led to another great cameo of Rowdy Roddy Piper for the They Live! recreation.

  3. I didn’t have a problem with the early game in Tomb Raider. I really liked the setting and found the villages and quests an interesting addition to the game.

  4. Favourite performances

    Mike Patton from Faith no More as ‘The Darkness’

    Runner up – Will Arnett basically playing ‘zombie apocalypse GOB’ in Left 4 Dead 2

  5. QotW: Off the top of my head I can’t think of any celebrity cameos that haven’t already been mentioned (also I’m really glad Postal 2 got some recognition it’s crude and childish but damn I love that game) but in terms of performance I’d have to say Mark Hamill as Majima in the Yakuza 1 localization, if anyone had to do an English voice for Majima I’d want it to be him. Also really have to agree with Lambert is Dead with Mike Patton for his role as The Darkness. It’s pretty damn impressive that he can just do that voice with little to no editing or post production help.
