A new trailer came out today for Avalanche Studios’ Mad Max, and the general conversation consists of people wondering just how much it can live up to the masterpiece that was George Miller’s Fury Road. There’s little doubt the movie was a masterpiece of visual storytelling and themes that broke ground in its genre, and people are really hoping the game can survive the hype.
For me, however, I can’t get over one detail that many may find insignificant. At the risk of being accused of nitpicking, I am finding it difficult to deal with the voice acting revealed so far. Mad Max is set in Australia, the series itself is a hallmark of Australian cinema, and I’m left wondering… where the hell did all the Australians go?
