Isaac Won't Be Up For Any Dialogue Awards Any Time Soon

Visceral's Shereif Fattouh, who is Dead Space 2's producer, recently stated that the game's protagonist, Isaac Clarke, won't be a "chatty Cathy" in the sequel. Fattouh goes on to say that video game hero's that speak too much in games are a bit "ridiculous".

Link must be this guy's hero then.

In an interview with VG247, Fattouh goes on to say;
Weve gone though a lot of edits throughout the games development, where we write a line of dialogue or maybe a monologue that sounds great on paper, it makes sense, and it fits in with the story but then we put it in the game and its like Wow, this is really taking too long, he said.

You know, Im already running into the next combat sequence or Im going on to the next story beat and hes still talking. Its kind of out of rhythm.

Hes not a chatty Cathy.

I myself was usually the one [saying], That cant happen, its way too long, we gotta go into the next thing.

I dont want to hear him talking, this is ridiculous. I wouldnt be talking while Im shooting, you know while Im being chased by these necromorphs, and hes having a monologue about his lament for his ex-girlfriend."
Dead Space 2 is out next week, January 25 in the US and January 28 in the UK for the PS3, 360, and PC.
