Driver voices?
#1 Submitted: Thu, 19/02/2015 - 07:39

Just a little something that I think might add a little extra personality with the side effect of giving the players cues on what other cars are doing.

Basically, giving the drivers of the cars a voice, and having their lines correspond more or less to what they are doing.
So if say I get a certain car pissed at me and wanting a fight, instead of just silently going after me, their driver might shout something alluding to that. If I cripple an enemy car, both my driver and theirs might yell lines back and forth. If i start mowing down peds, or do something really crazy stunt, my driver or another one comments on it or laughs.

Bonus points for Screwie Louie and Max having special lines for each other pertaining to the issue of his legs, and any other characters that have feuds or whatever between them. Also cops chatting over CBs or megaphones while trying to ram you.

I think it'd be a good opportunity for humor and exploring the personalities of the psychos behind the wheel.

Also, i think being able to play as characters other than Max and Dieanna would be fun, for the above reasons.

Ideally something like this should probably be toggleable, as some people might not care for chatty drivers.

Great idea! Any chance that this will be implemented?

That would smell like TDR2000 a lot... remember

"I'll get you!"

"Get outta here..."

And so on... I personally don't need the voices=) but all this is just my view... =D

I dislike the idea of the drivers having voices.

i'd like the drivers to have voices
i'd like to play as other drivers
i'd like the cops to yell things over a speaker at you

i'm not keen on conversations. just drivers swearing when they're hit or taunting you is enough
the pigs i'd like to be a bit more verbose.

It'd be good if like wrothbog said just drivers swearing when they hit you or w.e, like they did in the old carma games

I figured stuff like

Cutter:
Giggling and getting exciting inappropriately

Screwie Lewie:
Sounding like a more violent Pops from regular show

Pitbull:
Being barking mad roid ragey

Don Dumpster
Audibly eating stuff while talking

Van Hella
Being an angry german stereotype, periodically talking to her dog.

Brothers Grimm
Live Brother having a slow depressing voice
Puppet brother sounding something like conky from trailer park boys.

I support this.

I don't think we need voices. I want back the 'status' from Carma2.

Dazed and confused

Status thing would be pretty cool

Maybe represent it as "Driving while texting?"
