Every time the voice comes up with the name it would have to be computer I'd rather read the dialog.

Well, I'm sure CraigStern has something magical involving unicorns for the voice acting and chooseable name system, depending on how it works changeable name may be possible.

Instead of calling you by your First name: people can adress you as Duvalier and that's it

if you did the name change then just make it so that your first or last name is set in stone and then you can change the other name to whatever you want.  or just make it so after the name change everyone calls you Mr. X or just X.  It could work very easily from my perspective.  Now granted almost everything is easier to say then do or else I would already be a billionaire of off the stock market :)

Why I think that "Mr. X" idea wouldn't work: a) Parents wouldn't name their child "X" or "Mr. X" b) If they did, the child would make up a name of his/her own for friends to call him/her c) If it were just to keep their name a mystery, the child would probably still reveal his/her name to his/her closest friend.

Either Craig can make a name up so you can't do a name. Hey that gave me another idea to insert a cheat at the beginning you need to press some key combination like 657 or SD for the password for the cheats.

Some people get called by their last name. Getting called Duvalier in the voice acting would work fine. Some of my friends call me by my last name, and I know its not uncommon.

Craig already addressed the issue of players having different first names for Duvalier- he mentioned that this part will be glossed over in the dialogue and people will call him Duvalier (then again, he can always make up stand-in words, depending on who is talking to Duvalier- like "sonny", "boy", etc).

In any case, it will be a neat addition to the game, even if the primary aspect is to get a "proper" name when using a cheat.

Arman should call him 'kid' as much as possible.

If people want to change names from a cheat to a proper name, that's fine with me.  Since there's no TRPG PvP, it really doesn't affect anyone else (except it makes walkthroughs easier, etc)

You know i'm not saying voice acting is bad I love the idea and usually helps the dialog to move faster (depending on how fast you read). But some dialog you just have to read so you can use your imagination. But games where dialog is going on while your fighting especially ones where you have to be alert and pressing buttons constantly you need voice acting.
