Destiny Drops Dinklage

     This week, Game Informer reported that Destiny developers Bungie was dropping Peter Dinklage's dialog as Ghost, your know-it-all companion. Dinklage did was the first casted as Ghost, and we all thought he'd be the only one, even though the community wasn't too impressed with the way he sounds. The majority of people thought his performance was drab and sounded phoned in (I didn't think it was bad, but it wasn't the best).

     Bungie's replacement for Dinklage is Nolan North, best known for voicing Nathan Drake in the Uncharted series though he also voiced The Penguin in Batman: Arkham Knight. Bungie and North are re-recording every piece of dialog in Destiny and will be patched in on September 15 along with The Taken King expansion.

     This is a very weird happening, I can't find any examples of a main character's dialog being completely re-recorded post-release. Is this a sign of a broken relationship between Dinklage and Bungie? Possibly, but probably not. It's likely that Dinklage, with his Game of Thrones and his other movies, is just too busy to record anything of quality for Bungie. Still though, as much as I like Nolan North, Dinklebot will be no more.
