Late To The Party: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Nolan North for the longest time annoyed the hell out of me, this suddenly feels like a confessional, if Nathan Fillon is the ‘Geek God of TV’ then Nolan North is the gamers nerdgasm producer. A quick look at his IMDB page  shows how many games this silver voiced actor has been in; a lot of them crap to be perfectly honest but some absolute gems in there. My issue with Nolan was originally around his take of some quite iconic characters, the likes of Deadpool, Penguin and Superman/Superboy (you can find my DC Universe: Young Justice love here). All of which were perfectly acceptable takes in theory, actually no, that’s rubbish, Nolan North’s version of Penguin was on the verge of sounding like Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins. It was an American actor’s idea of a British accent, which has been formed based on Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and the voice Harry Shearer uses in The Simpsons to portray a Brit, and it’s just the worst.
