In my last journal I discussed how I was replaying DA2 and also just started Xenoblade. I did not think these two games would have anything in common, which I feel was a reasonable assumption since they're completely different games with completely different characters.
Well, I decided to go for it and jump into Xenoblade full swing, and as it turns out, the main character Shulk is voiced by Adam Howden, the voice of Anders (crazy hobo not awesome bro). He sounds EXACTLY the same, and I am ashamed I didn't realize it when I played it for about an hour a while back, but knowing is half the battle. I keep expecting to hear him yell "SUCK ON A FIREBALL!!111" even though he fights with swords. Of course, Shulk is very "young effeminate lad" and not very "unwashed abomination" so they still don't really have anything in common.
Oh, except some shit happened early on, and Shulk was talking to his friend Reyn and literally said "I feel like there are two versions of myself inside me and one of them can only think about revenge."
Ummm sir, I think you've been typecast... oh well, back to my epic journey for vengeance! IT'S REYN TIME!!
P.S. Xenoblade is an amazing game if I didn't say that already. *A*
