Until there is a Video Game Voice Acting Hall Of Fame, we will have to make do with The Great Performances, an ongoing celebration of those thespian moments that could not be found in any other art form. Mostly because those other art forms have bigger talent budgets.
We paid a visit to Arthur M. Gameological’s Tribeca loft recently. Well, he insists on calling it a “Tribeca loft,” at least. In reality, it’s more of a converted utility closet in the garment district. It would be close quarters under any circumstances, but the place was made even more cramped by the boxes that Arthur had piled all over—every one of which was filled with copies of the PlayStation classic Castlevania: Symphony Of The Night. Unaware that game discs are reusable, Arthur said that he’d “stocked up” so that he could view the game’s opening scene whenever he wants to, which is often.
We took the discs to the local game shop for store credit. It was enough to buy Arthur a new Xbox 360 and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. As you can tell by this edition of The Great Performances, he was delighted with Oblivion. He’s already asking us for another copy.
