While I stand by my desire to see the growly, SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY narrator in WildStar sacked or at least muted, I’m not singing the same song for another narrator — the unseen voice of the grim reaper. In-game it’s probably one of the Caretakers or some Eldan program that’s in charge of reforming your mangled corpse, but whatever it is, there’s this snarky, dry-witted voice that harranges you every time you die… and I love it.
I mean, you’re already kicking yourself for kicking the bucket, and now the game is too. Even though it’s an MMO and we have infinite lives mode unlocked, it’s a sign of failure when we bite it. I like that the devs decided to prod that sore spot by having this voice deliver a droll rebuke when we die. There are a lot of these quips and I’m still hearing new ones even a couple of weeks into the game.
And is it just me, or does that voice totally sound like the Ghost Host from Disney’s Haunted Mansion? Maybe that’s why I like him so much.
