However you spell it (I failed 3 years of French), not even the Language of Love can sissify Heavy Weapons Guy.

Not as cool as the Russian version, but his maniacal laugh is better.

I like the contrast. English? Okay. Russian? Excellent. French? Um.. Heavy Weapons Guy is to busy killing Germans to learn a Romance language.

It's french but he has a definite accent. Can't pinpoint it exactly. Like part greek, part middle-eastern and part russian.

Syd Midnight - 2008-06-18

Mouser, it's been many years since I took French, but when he says "Moi est Heavy Weapons Guy".. that's a bit of a barbarism, him saying "Moi est" and not "Je suis"? Because he's.. Heavy Weapons Guy?

Syd Midnight - 2008-06-18

My bad, "Moi c'est"..

mouser - 2008-06-18

Yeah I know what you did. And that was good. I meant the in-clip accent of the heavy guy.

Would have been a million stars if they had gotten Jean Reno.

The only tough French guy in existence

mouser - 2008-06-18

There's Clouseau as well.

Also, do the Medic in Turkish or Nigerian. Or...... yeah, I guess you could do it in German too. Voice actors from other nations never get the rightful props and big-ups and love they deserve.

These are done using game assets and Source, right? If so, these also serve as a very subtle advertisement for Source's facial animation engine. (Not to mention the free animation localization in the game itself.)

After watching this for half of its playing time, I finally noticed too, HOLY FUCKING SHIT, HE'S ACTUALLY LIP-SYNCHING!

Amazing job, you francophonic funlovers. You get a gold star.

Syd Midnight - 2008-06-18

Hell, you're right.. you can see it right before the "Some people think they can outsmart me" line.. he pauses a moment more here than in other versions, good delivery. Hell of a job, Valve! Good eye, Lizard.

I think the facial models for the characters are high-res, but everything else is in-game.

Liz-uh, Idiot... er... Sir? Please calm down. I...I'll buy you a beer!

SolRo - 2008-06-18

So how do you spell out the CRY SOME MORE line in fench?

j lzrd / swift idiot - 2008-06-18

Yeah, can we get all the funky French letters and translation in here? I like that little curlyque they have under their capitalized "C".

Cleaner82 - 2008-06-18

I fully expected this to be ruined by a French reading, but it's still thoroughly badass.

Teldin - 2008-09-15

Nice, but at the end he says "mangez-vous ca" which means "EAT THIS" rather than "cry some more". Kind of weird.

Premium translations. :D
