Tycho's voice

So... Jerry Holkins, right? Do you think he's perfect, or will he be chosen just so that all the fans don't complain?

How do you imagine Tycho's voice sound? I always imagine him sounding like Randal from Clerks.

  • Let's just say that they do make jokes based on OOC moments more oftenly than "just that one time".

    Or this one, for that matter.
    This one as well.
  • Long time reader of Penny Arcade, and no, I don't think it's OCC. Also, hilarious XD
  • So you guys are saying the real OOC moments are the times when he uses curse words and replies to Gabe in a sarcastic manner?

    Well... okay.
  • No, but a character doesn't have to be one-note ALL the time. Or at least not the good ones.
  • Exactly. The fact that such a cynical and sarcastic character as Tycho has these bottled moments of childish glee locked up inside makes him a more interesting character.

    The humor comes from the fact that it seems OOC, but that doesn't make it OOC.
  • I always thought he was being sarcastic in his glee, as evidenced by the fact that he goes stoic right after he says it.

    Also, just because a character usually swears and rants, it doesn't mean that he is required to be one-dimensional and always swear and rant.

    Moments of glee happen in the comic. Moments of glee happen int he game. It's not out of character.

    ...but I still say he really does seem sarcastic about it with the timing and that he's really not happy with his hand.
  • Out of sheer curiosity, does anyone imagine him sounding like this when they read the strips? Or did we all just keep our previous ideas for his voice?

    Personally, though I love Andrew Chaikin's portrayal dearly, I still imagine the Samuel L. Jackson/American Hugh Laurie/Tim Curry combination I mentioned earlier.

    I do now that I've heard him in Poker Night, but since I've never heard Gabe that voice remains left to my imagination and until I hear him, that's how it will stay.
