Confirmed: NOT Peter Sallis

posted by Guybrush Threepwood on - last edited - Viewed by 813 users

Thanks to Mixnmojo for the tip. It is now confirmed in the latest issue of PCZone that Peter Sallis will not be voice acting Wallace in the games, and instead his official back-up actor will be taking the role.

Deep down I suspected as much (since Telltale weren't saying anything, and he's getting old now), but I'm still a tad disappointed. I'm not sure how close the other guy sounds, but I hope the difference is barely - if not at all - noticable.

    It may be a play on words, though.

  • I'm still going with my idea.

    He's still acting in Last of the Summer Wine too.

  • Looks like the original Wallace is no-more, I'm gonna miss that voice :(.

  • @Emily said: We do have something on that DVD. It's not a featurette though. Speculate away. :D

    The Matter of Loaf and Death dvd is already out in Australia. It doesn't have the telltale feature! Any reason why? :(

    The Loaf & Death timing was earlier in Australia then in other regions (they aired the short earlier and finalized their DVD master earlier).

    I think I found it (on http://www.dvdtimes.co.uk/content.php?contentid=70045):


    Priced at £12.99 RRP on DVD and £14.99 RRP on Blu-ray Disc, extras include:

    * When Wallace Met Harvey, A Day In The Life of Nick Park (Sunday Times Piece)
    * Tell Tale Games – half hour game
    * Making Of A Matter Of Loaf And Death

    So, assuming this information is correct, I guess it's a demo of the first episode (didn't the Sam & Max cartoon dvd-set have a Ice Station Santa-demo?). Which is all kinds of awesome (even though I'm at a point where I don't even need demo's for my Telltale games anymore, but it will reach a far wider audience this way), because it means that there's going to be a demo available on the 23rd of March, which is the release date of the DVD (possibly earlier, what with all the time that goes into producing and shipping said DVD to the stores and such). And that would mean we would get the first episode in about 4, 5 weeks.

    Man, first I discovered W&G's secret console, and now this. I'm the Dirk Gently of the Telltalefans.

    Very good detective work indeed. Telltale never release a demo before the game is actually out, so this means we'll be seeing the first episode very soon if what we are lead to believe is correct. Unless "half hour game" means a specially created episode just for the DVD? I don't see that being the case, though.

  • Probably a preview, preview or the demo.

  • I'm guessing it may be a game made especially for the DVD, with the characters basically showing how these games are going to roll.

    And I feel like an idiot for not actually looking on DVDTimes like what the article said the special features. XP
