Indiana Jones and the Great Circle

In the Xbox Direct Event, Sony announced their decision to cast Troy Baker as their Indiana Jones. In the Indiana Jones timeline, the story of the game is set after Raiders of the Lost Ark and before The Last Crusade.

Xbox fans have been overjoyed at this announcement with similarities between Harrison Ford’s stellar film career and the dazzling video game career of Troy Barker surfacing. As it does not seem plausible for an 82-year-old Harrison Ford to lend his voice to a 40-year-old character, Bethesda Softworks cast Baker for the role.

The trailer of the game shows a whip-cracking, gun-toting Indiana Jones facing up to his adversary Emmerich Voss along with Gina Lombardi. For the voices, Troy Baker is joined by Marios Gavrilis, Harry Osbourne of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and Italian actress Alessandra Mastronardi who makes her voice-acting debut in the game.

I travel. I game. I write. In no strict order.

The single biggest lie told all around is, "It isn't that simple." It is simple, everything is. And that is what I emulate in my writing. No unnecessary jargons and no flamboyant flourish. Just what's needed to get your imagination going. After all mind has no limit, unlike the written word.
