I'm pretty it was revealed that the person there was a crew member... and in front of him is a giant set piece from Battlestar Galactica.

So what exactly is the delay this time? I've just been assuming The Escapist was late with the check again.

I think he agrees they should never make Bowser talk like he did in Sunshine again.

I actually didn't mind the talking. Better then them speaking in tongues while the player has to read more text (like in Galaxy).

But does Nintendo really need to do that for their "next" gen console?

In the case of Bowser, I'd rather never hear him talk but do everything in grunts/nother language type dealy. I can't picture him with a voice. TWBB I can accept tho lol

Voiceacting is not so much a matter of computing power and more of a budget thing. It's cheaper to do text over sounds than it is to cast voice actors. Also for some games it just works. With Banjo Kazooie it's adorable, and you can have characters with silly and sometimes not even human voices without recording an entire script of dialogue. In Mario it adds even more to the ambiance of the silent protagonist, as it seems stranger when you are somehow unable to form words in a world where everyone else can (including turtles and mushrooms.)
This also works in games like the Legend of Zelda, where the main characters name is chosen by the player. Obviously in games with prerecorded dialogue the other charactes wouldn't be able to address the main character by name (something that bugged the crap out of me in Final Fantasy X.) Games that use text dialgue need only copy and paste the name for instant realism.

For some games, yeah, it works. In the case of Legend of Zelda, if they did voice acting, they could always refer the character as Link (scary, I know). I'm just saying, i think it might be time for Nintendo to have more voice overs in their games that are silent, Like Zelda. Though quite honestly, I could never imagine Link speaking, but it's not like he ever has to speak.

Also, since I guess you're bringing in Banjo and Kazooie, I'm going to bring in Samus. From the trailer of the next Metroid, Samus will be talking, and I'm excited for that. Nintendo already fleshed out with the concept of voice overs in Corruption and Samus never talked in that. I mention that because Nintendo could do likewise in future Zelda and Mario games where everybody but the main character talks. Also, they get around not addressing the main character just fine in Fallout 3.

After watching the the trailer for Metroid: Other M, and the final boss fight of sunshine (which was a joke btw), I have to agree with smashbro. It's all about matching the voice and writing to the character, the problem with bowser in sunshine was a case of mistaken identity. i would have had no problem with bowser talking as long as writing didn't suck and the actor played bowser like he should be played in those games, like a badass.

There's a fair amount of voice acting in the PAL version of Metroid Prime.

I mean the only thing worse would be if they all ended up picknik drinking apple cider and bowser says "Hey mario, pass the sun chips" (though it would make a really funny picture to draw). No, Bowser is a badass with a deep seated hatred for mario, which will only be subsided for a match of tennis (and even then he is still a badass).

I think Nintendo only got Bowser's badassery right in Super Mario Strikers.

Late to the party but here is the thing. Metroid is not miyamoto. Miyamoto has the final say on voice acting I believe.
