In Absence of News, We'll Take Implication

According to Catrina Dennis, DC Universe Online's Creative Director, Jens Andersen, has hinted that there may be new Booster Gold-themed DLC coming to the MMO video game in future months.

While discussing what television-related projects gamers might see, Andersen said:

"Well, 'Legends of Tomorrow' has Rip Hunter in it... so you never know when Booster Gold might show up."

So... maybe Booster Gold, maybe not.

Where No Skeets Has Gone Before

The DC Universe Online MMO is still online and free to play. If you're obsessed with Booster Gold, it's a great place to hang out. And when Sony Online Entertainment releases its next Downloadable Content (DLC) for the game, there will be even more goods for Booster boosters.

Introducing the Booster Gold-inspired iconic gear:

Finally, a Booster Gold power-suit that looks worse than his New 52 costume! It looks like a Mobile Suit Gundam fever dream. Iconic gear is supposed to be an incentive for power-players, but I can't imagine who would want to wear Skeets for their codpiece. That's just so, so wrong.

You can find a large version of this pic and more information about the planned "Origin Crisis" DLC at ComicsAlliance.com.

The New Voice of Booster Gold

As mentioned here last month, Booster Gold has a new voice in the DC Universe Online video game. And now you can hear it.

Booster Gold 2011:

Booster Gold 2012:

Booster was originally given voice by Tracy W. Bush. I don't know who gives voice to Booster now, but he sounds like Martin Sheen. (For the record, I'm 99% sure that the actor giving the new voice isn't Martin Sheen; he just sounds like him.) I like Martin Sheen, but he's no Booster Gold.

Bush's voice was replaced in early June because game producers felt Bush was over-used in the game. This change caused quite a stir in the online community of players, triggering an in-depth response from DCUO Creative Director Jens Andersen:

Regardless of the reasons, sometimes recasting needs to happen, and we make those calls on a case by case basis. Given that the Booster Gold recasting has received a lot of attention, I wanted to address it specifically. First off, change is always hard to get used to. At this point everyone was very familiar with the old Booster Gold VO, so any change is going to get a reaction. Second, there was a casting conflict on the villain side. Often, Calculator and Booster would talk over each other. Since they were voiced by the same actor it became a bit uncanny when this happened. Third, DC wanted the character to be more heroic and less of a shill (albeit a very funny shill in the hands of Tracy).

It might take some getting used to, but the new version isn't that far away from the old one, and it works much better for a character that is becoming more involved in the content as a participant rather than a narrator.

I think I can safely say that more interaction with Booster Gold is always a good thing, even if it causes Booster Gold to loose his voice.

You can read Andersen's full post at forums.stations.sony.com, along with some of the fan response. And of course if you want the full effect of interacting with Booster Gold, DC Universe Online is free to download and play at DCUniverseOnline.com.
