David Cross even annoyed himself with his San Andreas voice acting
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is still remembered as a highlight in the series, and while it helped turn Grand Theft Auto into a global mainstream phenomenon it also sparked a fair share of controversies, including the infamous Hot Coffee mod.
Actor and comedian David Cross appeared as the proprietor of the Zero RC electronics store – and even he was annoyed with his own performance. In a mission called Supply Lines, you are tasked with controlling a remote controlled plane to exact revenge on Zero’s rival while Zero blabbers in the background.
“It’s the most annoying voice you could imagine, accompanying that,” said Cross. “So annoying. I hated it. And I couldn’t fucking do it. The RC thing? … It’s impossible.”
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Season Pass
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla DLC mission The Legend of Beowulf leaked
Like most major titles, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will have DLC and a bunch of different editions. If you pre-order one that includes the Season Pass, you will be rewarded with a bonus mission.
The Gold and Ultimate Editions will include a bonus mission, but Ubisoft have yet to officially specify what that might be. Fortunately, the German Uplay store listing is more candid and reveals that the mission is named The Legend of Beowulf and will reveal “the cruel truth behind the legend.” The Season Pass will also include new lands and equipment as well as “epic new content”.
History repeats itself: Ubisoft launched a lot of DLC for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey that explored Greek mythology, and it looks like Valhalla will dig deep into Norse mythology. Last week’s Inside Xbox stream was supposed to offer some gameplay footage, but all the footage turned out to be heavily arranged. Ubisoft has apologized, but there’s still no actual gameplay footage.
Next-gen vikings: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is scheduled for release in the fourth quarter of 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as well as the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. It keep building on the RPG foundations set up by Origins and Odyssey, and now you will have a settlement to look after.
