Actor John DiMaggio who voices Marcus Felix has spilt some beans on upcoming Gears of War 2 with teasing news. More weapons, news beasts including fights with the huge Brumak and more characters, as well as reprising his role as leader of the Stranded, Franklin.
DiMaggio also went on to hint that the story will be going a lot deeper so those looking for more answers had better keep a close eye on this November when this Xbox360 exclusive hits the stores.
"It's badass. In fact, I saw some of the stuff yesterday! Which level was it? It was, well listen, there's bigger beasts in this game. Bigger beasts. Remember the scene with the Brumak, when the Brumak comes out and we're like 'Brumak! Roll! Get outta there!' and it's coming after them – and they don't have a fight with him? Well, they fight him now."
"It looks cool as s***. The storylines are really cool and the relationships of the guys in the game – the sequences that explain things that are going on – they're a lot deeper. Most of the voice-actors who do the games are friends, so it's kinda cool – we're all fans of the game."
For those living under a rock, DiMaggio's talent is also behind the voice of that precocious scamp 'Bender Bending Rodriguez' from the soon to be revived cartoon show, Futurama.
