Rourke goes Rogue

05.01.2009

As people like Vin Diesel will cheerfully demonstrate, the line between Hollywood and videogames continues to blur.

Mickey Rourke is the latest to get digitized, though not quite in the same 8-bit way as in THE WRESTLER. Rourke is loaning his raspy voice to the lead character of the upcoming military action game ROGUE WARRIOR from Bethesda, the company behind last years critical smash FALLOUT 3.

Rourke will throw vocals as Richard "Demo Dick" Marchinko, a real-life former Navy SEAL and founder of Team Six. The next-gen game finds Marchinko on "a clandestine operation to disrupt a suspected North Korean ballistic missile program," only to uncover a conspiracy that takes him into Russia for additional killing and destruction. The game is due later this year.

Extra Tidbit: Marchinko has penned several novels (and an autobiography called, naturally, "Rogue Warrior") and served as an adviser on THE ROCK and TV's "24".

Nice concept but I would like to see it in action before making a judgment.

"Next-gen" is just a vague buzz term that implies being modern. This "next-gen" era will likely continue until at least 2012.

Why is it that the generation of consoles that were released four years ago are still referred to as next gen? How are they not current gen?

awesome!

im really looking forward to this, as this is a fantastic developer. rourke has a great voice too. this should be as good as any great celebrity voice overs in games in the past. most recent good ones i heard were in call of duty world at war, gary oldman and keifer sutherland did great jobs.
