Lol well considering I just learned that today, at least you now know how to say it.

I think you just prooved my point.

I think you just proved my point.
Not exactly... shouldn't people working on the game make sure that all their actors and staff know how to say her name? When they don't it just gives off the impression they really couldn't care less about being accurate.

Unless we're going to say that Trinity are the true trolls.

I mean if they had others say her name correctly then I don't think it'd be too far fetched for them to intentionally have others say it wrong. Like I said before it doesn't really annoy me. I think it's kinds funny.

This. I don't think the VA saying her name wrong was a conscious decision due to the background of the character, if they were that thorough in their thought process in these games, we'd probably get a decent story that made sense.

As if if You didn’t do it on purpose. Cut the crap

So, I’m now replaying the game on New Game Plus, Deadly Obsession.

Since the new patch dropped, I’m noticing a huge difference in performance on the PC, for the better. Anyone feeling the same?

Haha, me too. It's a double standard, the people in the game might have a disability that must be taken seriously. *chuckles*

There’s a clear difference between purposely typing the wrong name and pronouncing it differently because of your accent.
