Your what, Mr Boron?!

Post by Axeface » Sun, 28. Oct 18, 02:43

So, with X4 around the corner I decided to play a bit of X3AP.
And this happened... In all my years of playing these games I dont think i've ever heard it before, and it really caught me offguard. My significant other can attest to me almost wetting myself with laughter :D

The real question is, did you encounter:

A) Improper transliteration of alien expression
OR
B) Intentional prank of the under-paid voice artist

Its an old and apparently common problem for the Boron.

Bablefish glitch, definately.
Though seriously its probably just a mistake in translation, i've noticed others in the past. It's brilliant though and makes me love the boron even more :D :boron:

I also wonder if the actor they got to do Boron almost did the german voicing for them? Boron have a german accent, which actually really helps give them character.
