Playing Destiny 2’s Crucible got me thinking about multiplayer in-game announcers.
I’ve always been fond of the Halo multiplayer announcer. I think I have all his lines ingrained in the deepest parts of my brain, forever chanting “Oddball” “Slayer” “Double Kill” etc.
I was a bit disappointed with Bungie’s next announcer, Shaxx, in Destiny 1. Shaxx’s character, like most characters in vanilla Destiny 1, had this suppressed tone. He would say lines that suggested he was excited by what was happening in a match, but the delivery made him seem restrained. He was also a little too eager to tell me that I was losing in Crucible.
But now Bungie seems to have given Shaxx a bit of an attitude adjustment in Destiny 2 and I am loving it. He not just more excited by what is going on, he is INTO IT. A couple of my favorite deliveries:
“Was that all of them? THAT WAS ALL OF THEM!”
“Together! As one. I love it”
I see that I kept my favorites confined to Bungie shooters. What are some of your favorite in-game announcers?
