P.S. Another audiobook chapter with fully licensed music! :) I'll look into the possibility of getting you the music without the text as well, but I'm unsure how that works with our license - need to ask around.

P.S.2. If you'd like to chip in and help us out with music costs, thus becoming a team member ("supporter" status ;)) - be sure to let us know with a DA note or e-mail.

P.S.3. We're also looking for Adobe After Effects specialists - if you have what it takes to join us in making this series even more epic than it already is, be sure to contact us ASAP!

Surprisingly, I feel the Garrus actor is actually sounding too sarcastic. He's missing some of Garrus' other emotions, but he more or less has the voice impression down. I feel the team all talk a little too softly and calmly, especially considering their situation. Don't be afraid to yell!

Ok, critic moment over! You've assembled a talented team! I'm still impressed by your turian voice filter! I always look forward to these! :)

Acting for Liara could be better. Im just not hearing Liara from her but I guess it really is a difficult task.

Tali's actor is quite could...slips up a few places but is good overall and sounds the most like the character being portrayed.

The one for Garrus is quite good.

Codex actor is as always great.

God, Liara and Tali are absolutely amazing with their voice acting - especially Tali. Nokyo-Chan was definitely a great find. Garrus/StephanosRex is doing great and has improved a lot - he just needs to work on the sort-of teasing and sarcastic lilt that Garrus can have in his voice at times. I am extremely impressed with this and, I don't know how you found your voice actors, but they deserve tons of credit for how wonderful they are. Your comics were already fantastic but this brings it to the next level.

Agree with this. Although this canīt top the drunken-Tali-talk :D

Wow, this was great as always - great work by the audio team and the VA's as usual. MAJOR props to StephanosRex though, suddenly I can really hear Garrus's drawl. :D

I agree that the Voice Actors did an AMAZING job! As everyone else has said, StephanosRex's role as Garrus has improved incredibly. Nokyo-Chan is maintaining a consistent level of awesome, and Minty's rendition of Liara is, quite frankly, unreal. I was going to make an additional comment about their dialogue missing a little something, like a few of the others said, but then I listened to it a second time and decided, "Nope, it's great just the way it is." Keep up the good work.
