Yea super impressed by RBDOOM-3. It's been a long time coming. Cutscenes are a little rough though
I don't think anyone should be forced to vomit onto a microphone, but I can't resist - 'They also claim that residual payments for videogame performers would be unfair to the programmers, designers and artists who also make a game. Voice actor Phil Lamarr dismisses this as "a self-defeating argument" because it assumes that videogame performers would oppose residual payments being extended to those staff as well. "Why wouldn't you share it with the people who are working 16-hour days during crunch time?"'
"Why wouldn't EA pay everyone else more after giving us money?" Avoiding the fact that if VAs got the residuals they're asking for there wouldn't be anything left to give to said programmers, designers and artists... different industry, different profit margins. Seeing as SAG has been striking for a month and isn't willing to entertain any negotiations speaks volumes. That they want to talk about health and safety concerns (all of which have been addressed in the *current* offer from months ago) and they won't accept any residuals below what they are accustom to in Film/TV shows what they're really after.
They want money, they don't care that the gaming industry is far younger and more fragile than Film. SAG wants big residuals so they can take a big cut off the top for shipping+handling to their members. If it was about health and safety they would have never gone on strike.
So now non-unionized voice actors are going to be doing the job, and they actually may be hurt by the health/safety issues that SAG doesn't even care about.
