The second game release this month. After “Brink”, we now get “The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings”,  a role-playing video game developed by Polish studio CD Projekt RED for Microsoft Windows and Xbox 360. Damian voices various characters.

Please click the picture below to get to the official website, but only if you’re over 17 years of age.

Damian O’Hare: “Brink” (VG)

Posted in various work, video games with tags , , , on 9 May, 2011 by ambarussa

11 May 2011 sees the release of “Brink”

an immersive first-person shooter that blends single-player, co-op, and multiplayer gameplay into one seamless experience, allowing you to develop your character whether playing alone, with your friends, or against others online. You decide the combat role you want to assume in the world of Brink as you fight to save yourself and mankind’s last refuge. Brink offers a compelling mix of dynamic battlefields, extensive customization options, and an innovative control system that will keep you coming back for more.

Damian O’Hare’s is one of the eight “voices” you can choose from to play (with a “fairly strong Northern Irish accent”).

“Brink” is available on Amazon and suitable for folks over 16 years of age.  Frank, authority for all things gaming, has already placed an order, so buyers shouldn’t be disappointed.
Don’t ask me – my favourite VG is Plants vs. Zombies

Pirates of the Caribbean Lego Video Game – new trailer and screencaps

I’m a declared VG luddite, but I admit I’m very tempted to pre-order the “Pirates of the Caribbean” Lego game, if it should be released for PC as well. The brand new trailer released today by Disney France looks hilarious.

Here’s a screencap. Marines that should have gone to Specsavers and a befuddled Norrington. You can choose one of 70 characters to play; whether Gillette will be one of them, I don’t know yet.

My favourite scene so far:

New page for voice acting, minor changes

Posted in various work, video games, website with tags , on 31 January, 2010 by ambarussa

I’ve added a skeleton page for Damian’s voice acting; it lists ads, but mostly the VGs he was involved with. There are titles, dates and links; please note that most of those games are suitable for +16 only and that your date of birth will be asked for. I’m not responsible for the content of external links and you click at your own risk.

I also updated the biography and corrected a gazillion of typos and incorrect translations in the German version of the website. Thanks a lot to Andreas S. for the information on the video games as well as for German-betaing.
