Dinklage's Busy Schedule

Last week, Bungie announced that Destiny would be joining the huge list of games under actor Nolan North's belt, with North recording new Ghost dialogue for upcoming £40 piss-take expansion The Taken King, as well as replacing all of Peter Dinklage's famously bland dialogue, who didn't put the heart in his performance than he did in his famous villain, Miles Finch of Elf fame. People wondered whether this was a mutual disagreement, whether fans had lobbied Bungie to get rid of Dinklage or if, like Finch, Dinklage became power- and money-crazy, but, in an interview with Game Informer, executive producer Mark Noseworthy (Who, subject to reviews, may or may not be worthy of his nose) claimed that Dinklage was ditched because they "needed to work with someone who is more available" as Dinklage is probably very busy filming the next season of Game of Thrones, as well as upcoming films The Angry Birds Movie (Seriously) and ambiguously-titled comedy film Michelle Darnell.

North, on the other hand, "is a pro" according to Noseworthy, and "is his thing". Also featuring in The Taken King is Firefly actor and Ben Chang's same-sex celebrity crush Nathan Fillion, who voices Cayde-6. I would go on more about The Taken King, but I really just don't want to.

The Trailer of the Day today is Mafia 3 Inside Look Trailer, in which we see some screenshots and footage of 1968 New Orleans, in which the game is set. I'm a fan of the Mafia franchise, but it's a shame that you don't have to play as the Mafia in this one. Still, at least we'll get some more closure after the ambiguous ending of Mafia 2, so that's alright.
