  • Troy Baker faces powerful backlash over AI voice NFT promotion

    Prolific voice actor Troy Baker, best known for BioShock Infinite's Booker DeWitt and The Last of Us's Joel, found himself in hot water with his fans after tweeting about a partnership with a “Voice NFT” company. The backlash was spurred not only by Baker's decision to get into the notoriously sketchy NFT game, but in the tone of his message, in which he told followers, “You can hate. Or you can create.”

    “I’m partnering with VoiceverseNFT to explore ways where together we might bring new tools to new creators to make new things, and allow everyone a chance to own & invest in the IP’s they create,” Baker tweeted. “We all have a story to tell. You can hate. Or you can create. What’ll it be?”

    The ratio is brutal:

    “This is a shitty grift,” Obsidian's Josh Sawyer replied. “It has nothing to do with ownership stakes in new IPs and everything to do with a (very bad) speculative asset class. It sucks.”
