And, contrary to popular belief, it’s not a fan-made mod.
I’m not one to be unnecessarily mean, or to severely pass judgment without cause, but what the heck was NRS thinking with this one? Who woke up one morning and decided ‘oh hey, you know what we should do? Make a DJ with no prior acting skills a voice actor!’
This is beyond HORRIBLE! He’s literally screaming in the mic like he’s trying to hype up a crowd over loud music. Please, Dimitri, chill.
How did this get out before August 22nd? Well, you see, when a patch is sent through the PC version of the game, anything that is not released but is present in the files, is gon’ get leaked. That’s a fact.
Worst VA than Ronda?
Ronda Rousey, former UFC fighter and now WWE wrestler, sounds leagues better than him, and that’s saying something. She has gotten a lot of flak – a lot – for her sometimes stiff and frigid lines, but Dimitri is on a whole other level.
There’s even a thread on Reddit titled “We Owe Ronda an Apology”, and heck, I agree! Her delivery of Sonya’s lines was smoother than Dimitri’s voice, which sounds like cigarette smoke personified as if a thousand cigarettes still lingered in his throat. That is not what I envision when I read that someone has a husky voice.
I truly hope all this attention, however negative, can help him sell more tickets to shows and his music because that’s what he’s truly good at. The remixed version of the original Mortal Kombat song was amazing in the launch trailer.
And talking about that song, when are we going to be able to buy the full version? That’s what fans want, not voice acting from the DJ who wrote it, and certainly not his face on a beloved character, and certainly not dressed in a costume that has so much neon it looks like he’s actually the bike from Tron.
*NRS has left the conversation*
Oops, this video is unavailable?
Now, most of the videos that surfaced on YouTube yesterday had been struck by copyright claims, good old WB, but I got you fam. A lot of them are still on r/MortalKombat and Twitter, bless the front page of the internet!
All of this was leaked, as some had access to this tower where we’ll all be able to enjoy (skip) his lines of dialogue and probably earn the alternative color of this skin.
As I mentioned in my previous article, skins for season 3-5 of the Kombat League has been leaked, and amongst those were the two Dimitri Vegas skins we’re going to get at the end of this month, August 22nd!
I can’t help but feel hungover when I look at this skin and I’m not sure if it’s a good or bad thing. It would be even better if the remixed song he made would play, or if we could even unlock it for the title menu has the music in this game is quite forgettable.
I guess if you want to blind your opponent and get an easy win, it’s a skin you’ll definitely want in your arsenal. Hopefully, you can put a mask over it.
