Bane’s Audio from The Dark Knight Rises: Before and After

 

knew they changed Bane’s voice. Look, anytime there’s a movie I’m really anticipating, I try to go into a complete blackout about the film.  No extended trailers, no sneak peeks, no early reviews, nothing.  I want as much of the movie untainted and as new as possible when I see it in the theaters.  That being said, The Dark Knight Rises  was particularly difficult to avoid; the first trailer for it that I saw was during a commercial break for the 2012 Super Bowl.  I managed to avoid everything up until previews started rolling in the theater for The Avengers. Not too bad for ignoring one of the two biggest film events for comic book people this year.

During the Super Bowl commercial, Bane’s voice was unintelligible.  I’d heard rumblings that it was bad, but I never thought it would be that  bad.  You couldn’t understand him! What the hell? Look, I get if you’re wearing a mask your voice will be muffled but you would think that, as a main character of the closing third of a massive & beloved trilogy, you would kind of need to understand his dialogue. Apparently enough people freaked out that they did re-dub the dialogue.  So now you can understand him…and his weird ass lilt.  Odd choices, Mrs. Hardy & Nolan, odd choices.

Possible Spec Leaks on Next-Gen Xbox

Next gen dev kit?By no means the greatest pictures, but these are purported shots of the next-gen Xbox devkit, which apparently popped up for sale for a cool ten large.  Eurogamer has the entire story, which they seem to be skeptical of as well.  Still, interesting, especially if the specs are to be believed. Some are speculating that it’ll be up to six times more powerful than the current Xbox.
