The Voice Actor For Seteth In Fire Emblem: Three Houses Is Now Performing Popular Seteth Memes

Quickly after the release of Fire Emblem: Three Houses, fans of the game began creating memes focusing on the character of Seteth. And now Seteth’s voice actor is actually reading and voicing some of these memes on Twitter.

Seteth holds a lot of power in the game and doesn’t like the player character at first. So Seteth is fairly grumpy when giving some of his quests and errands. This has led to the creation of popular memes, featuring Seteth asking players to do silly, mundane or strange errands or tasks.

In response to the popularity of these memes Mark Whitten, the voice actor for Seteth, has actually begun recording himself reading the memes as Seteth.

Marked using the hashtag #setehsays, these tweets have been very popular within the Fire Emblem community. On the Fire Emblem subreddit, players are excited to have someone officially part of the game share in some of their meme-fueled fun.

“Omg. This is the greatest. I’ve never been in a fandom where the voice actors were actually part of the community and it is awesome,” wrote one fan on Reddit.

“My sister doesn’t even like fire emblem and she’s laughing her ass off,” wrote another fan on the same post.

As of now, Whitten has only recorded two #setethsays and posted them on Twitter. Fans are already asking for him to do more, sharing new and old Seteth memes in the hope he will read one of these next.

1993’s Doom Requires A Bethesda Account To Play On Switch, Quickly Becomes An Internet Joke [Updated]

Today, Bethesda announced the first three Doom games were all be coming to modern consoles including the Nintendo Switch. What Bethesda didn’t mention was that you’d first need to create a Bethesda.net account in order to play them.

ResetEra’s Nibel pointed out the requirement on Twitter earlier this afternoon. While Doom I and II only require you to login to a Bethesda account once to unlock the game, Doom III will require it every time you play in order for all of the features and content to be available.

It’s an especially bizarre requirement since none of the games have an online component. Each game only offers local multiplayer and doesn’t require an internet connection to play beyond the logins. I bought the original Doom earlier today because of the nostalgia of seeing the shooter I’d first encountered on the SNES decades ago playable in my hand on Nintendo’s newest console, but getting stuck at a login screen before I’d even fired my first bullet snapped my rose-colored glasses in half.

Is Bethesda really that desperate to get people signed up for Bethesda marketing emails?

In response to the requirement people have been poking fun at Bethesda with the help of software developer Foone’s “Death Generator” tool and imagining what it would be like if the login prompts appeared in other classic games:

Bethesda did not respond to a request for comment about why the login requirements were added to the new versions of the decades old games.

Update July 27, 12pm—Bethesda says the login was meant to be optional and that it will be adjusted.

Note: this article has been updated to clarify that many of the memes mocking Bethesda.net were made using this software tool.

Big Smoke’s Famous Fast Food Order From GTA San Andreas Said By Solid Snake

David Hayter is well known as the voice of Solid Snake, providing the voice of the character in multiple games, including cameo appearances in non-Metal Gear games like Smash Bros. And now thanks to a fan request, Hayter lets us hear how the super spy would order from a fast food joint.

In the world of video game fast food orders, Big Smoke’s massive haul from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is probably the most famous order ever made. To be fair, I can’t actually think of a different fast food order in another game, but still a famous order.

George Salonikh hired Hayter to say the order via the website Cameo. The site allows fans to pay actors a certain amount of money to get personalized audio messages featuring any messages they want. This service is mostly used for Birthdays, Graduations or Anniversaries. However, Salonikh decided to use Cameo for something a bit funnier. He then uploaded the clip to YouTube.

Hearing Solid Snake order all this food somehow doesn’t sound nearly as ridiculous as when Big Smoke places the order. Maybe Snake is actually creating a giant distraction inside the restaurant and will sneak in while they make his massive order?

If you want to make David Hayter say funny things, you can send a request using the Cameo website. Maybe have him say other Grand Theft Auto memes, like “Hey, Niko! Want to go bowling?” or “Ah shit, here we go again.”

A New Mod Adds CJ And Big Smoke From GTA: San Andreas Into Resident Evil 2

CJ from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas has become quite popular these days, thanks to a recent viral meme and now a new mod from BeastGamingHD and Marcos RC brings the internet’s favorite gangster into the world of Resident Evil 2. But he isn’t alone. Mr.X has been replaced with the one and only, Big Smoke, also from San Andreas.

The mod adds audio clips and character models ripped right out of the original San Andreas into RE2. So when Smoke hits CJ he asks “You okay, man?” in a sad and serious voice, which makes me laugh everytime I hear it.

I also love what happens when Big Smoke grabs CJ. 

“It’s me, Big Smoke!”

This Big Smoke and CJ mod is just one more to add to the giant pile that is Resident Evil 2 mods. From broken faces to a nearly naked Mr.X, the modding community has really been pumping out wonderful content for RE2.

BeastGamingHD has also created more mods for Resident Evil 2, including a mod that adds Thanos and Thor into the game.
