Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

November 27, 2008 -

The CBC reports that a Canadian voice actor with video game experience was among those wounded in yesterday's terror rampage in Mumbai, India.

Michael Rudder was one of two wounded Canadians who were part of a delegation on a trip to India...

 

Rudder, who has worked in film, theatre and television, is a voice performer who has played roles in cartoons, commercials and video games, including top sellers Assassin's Creed and Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3. He has also performed in the animated PBS series Postcards From Buster.

Rudder's other game work includes:

  • Far Cry: Instincts
  • Prince of Persia: Warrior Within

GP: Thanks to GamePolitics reader Sean Bustin for the tip!

Mike counts as one of the lucky ones. Casualty reports for the Mumbai attacks are nearing 200 dead on my last check.

Mr. Thompson,

How dare you try to hijack this incident just to further your own agenda. Anybody, regardless if they're gamer or not, certainly does not deserve have to go through this incident, and they certainly don't need people like you hoping that they get the worst of it. Nearly 200 people are dead from this sir - show some respect.

its true actully there is no point in trying to ip ban him he finds ways to get around it and if you attempt to ignore him all it does his give him even more stupidity because then he believes his crap that we are all 10 year old children who are just mad....btw we have been 10 year old children here for about three years now...its kinda easy actully if you read his posts (i do because well he's a moron and its entertaining to see what crap he says next) and well if you dont want to then dont read his post or dont respond to him...

 

either way he isnt going to leave this site...we've tried for a long long time

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

seriously.. i dont get why when JT is banned, and then when a new username pops up.. why isnt he insta banned again as soon as its determined its him?

I mean ther is no point in banning him if he's allowed to just make a new account, n let him step outta line again before banning him again.

 

as soon as he says anything... ban him. repeatedly. if he wants to sit there all day making accounts... so be it.. just keep banning them till he gets bored.

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

yeh but when he makes a new account, as soon as mods are aware its him he shuold ALWAYS  be banned instantly again, without further additional offences  being required.

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

Let me explain what should have been obvious to a long-time observer of Jack Thompson:

Feed the troll yes or feed the troll no, hobble on your knees across the Plaza of Our Lady of Guadalope while reciting Our Fathers and Hail Marys, sit there quitely and don't make eye contact, give him without resistance your money and your wife, take out a million restraining orders, move out of the country and to the remotest part of Africa, it don't matter. Once he decides to set his meat-hooks into you, there's absolutely nothing you can do to be rid of him.

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

and here you have it, folks. yet more irrefutable proof that SmackTard Jack is now officially undeserving of life. no  human being would ever celebrate school shootings. no human being would ever dance on the graves of good people in the name of a disgusting and illegal agenda. no human being would ever respond to a working citizen getting shot in a terrorist attack with overwhelming joy. no human being would ever do the things that Jack "Less Noble Than Registered Sex Offenders" Thompson does on a daily basis. let's be honest - his kind isn't dying off fast enough.

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

To Jack: http://www.canada.com/montrealgazette/news/arts/story.html?id=2236415d-b...

"The last few times I'd run into Michael (one of the friendliest, gentlest people on the planet), he'd talked to me about yoga instead of theatre."
"I cannot get my mind around this," Dumont said. "I can't get my head around it. It's bizarre, a man like Michael who constantly seeks after spiritual peace to have violence thrust upon him, it just boggles my mind."

Congratulations, you just enjoyed the suffering of a peaceful man. What's next, laughing at Jesus being nailed to the cross?

 

The role of The Dark Prince was very interesting. It represented the dark side, and just like in movies, someone playing the bad guy does not have to be the bad guy. In this game, the Prince's violent actions were frowned upon by Farah yet encouraged by The Dark Prince, who got mad every time the Prince wanted to act good or help Farah. In the end the prince rejected The Dark Prince, his dark side. In fact, it was impossible for you to win by attacking him in the end, you had to stay your blade. This is a story wrapped around the concept of that violence doesn't help and only brings out the worst in us. It's a symbol of how violence doesn't solve anything, how one should try to protect what's still there rather than to blindly avenge that what you've lost.

In other words, the violent role actually tries to lead people away from violence, by showing the dark side of it. When reading how peaceful he was and how he was voice-acting in a sweet show for children, where he was the voice of a donkey, I realize how his role in Prince of Persia actually fits straight into that concept.

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

Although he only voiced the Dark Prince in the small cameo in "Warrior Within". But that was an interesting concept.

He was great in his voice role. And he seemed like a nice person. Jack you slime (imitates the prince) you're just a parasite. You deserve NOTHING!

P.S. For trivia, Richard Dumont in this interview was both the voice director and the voice of the Old Man in both Warrior Within and Two Thrones.

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

Good.  Then maybe he won't think that violence as fun won't be so much fun anymore.  Maybe he'll learn something from this.  Nothing like a splash of reality in the face of a video game industry tool to wake him up.  Jack Thompson

Guys, I think we're looking at this the wrong way. It's good that Jack Thompson has come out in support of this terror attack. Why?

Because remember: If Jack Thompson is on your side, you always lose.

Grombar SMASH!

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

You make me sick. You hide behind your bullshit Christian morals, and then you taunt the victim of a terrorist attack? You do not have any worth as a human being, you are not doing the world any good, and you are a horrid, sadistic little shitstain on the tapestry of the human race. You think you have the moral high ground? You don't. Eat shit, and I hope you burn in hell.

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

You fucking deserve to be put away for treason you subhuman piece of shit.

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

Treason?  I understand where you're coming from with your remarks but let's dial back the hostility a bit.

 

Andrew Eisen

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

The reasoning: Jack is supporting the terrorists that committed this vile act with his vile comment about the actor.

Article III, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution: Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

I've argued that Jack has already admitted as much in a letter he sent to Take-Two on the 5th Anniversary of 9/11.

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Hornets, Jack Thompson can geaux chase a chupacabra.

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Pelicans. Solidarity for the Saints = No retreat, no surrender. 2013 = Saints' revenge on the NFL. Even through the darkest days, this fire burns always.

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

That's pretty flimsy.

 

Andrew Eisen

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

Not necessarily.

The Islamic terrorists that the U.S. has been fighting since 9/11 hate American pop culture. Attacking American pop culture(which includes video games) brings aid and comfort to America's current enemies. Therefore, you can argue that Thompson(as well as groups like the Parent Trash Cult) is committing treason.

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Hornets, Jack Thompson can geaux chase a chupacabra.

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Pelicans. Solidarity for the Saints = No retreat, no surrender. 2013 = Saints' revenge on the NFL. Even through the darkest days, this fire burns always.

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

Sure you could argue that but it's still incredibly flimsy.  Maybe if Thompson sent the terrorists a fruit basket for a job well done...

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

Jack Thompson, you're an asshole and you can go to hell. In fact, you'll be teaming with the 9/11 hijackers in a hockey game against the '76 Philadelphia Flyers whenever the lake of fire becomes frozen solid.

Your post about this is down right offensive to anyone who has ever been wounded or lost a loved one to a terror attack like in 9/11.

Jack, your actions in the last few years speak volumes about the kind of person you truly are to get your jollies out of this tragedy. But then again, mentally molesting grieving families to promote your personal vendetta is your sick idea of entertainment anyway, isn't it, Jack?

Since you brought your son into your personal vendetta, I'm only going to say one thing about him: How is he going to explain to his children down the line that their grandfather wasn't really this evil person that he unintentionally made himself out to be?

Seriously, Jack, seek professional help. It's painfully obvious that you desperately need it. And while you're at it, practice what you preach: Grow up and get a life.

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

Most excellent Simpsons reference.

Saying that Jack Thompson is impotent is an insult to impotent men everywhere. They've got a whole assortment of drugs that can cure their condition; Jack, however...

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

Yes, maybe this will teach this man a lesson for being involved in something violent! So by your standards Jack, all of the actors who have ever been in a violent movie should suffer the same? You think it would be usefull for Governor Schwarzeneggar to take a few bullets? Followed by Stephen King for those violent books he writes! Maybe we can find a poet that wrote about a war and pop a few caps in him.

The barrel you are in must have a very thick bottom Mr. Thompson, because you have bee scraping it for a long time. Shame on you.

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

in fact... anyone who distributes any religious book containing violence also deserves to be shot (according to jacks logic). He hasnt thought this through. as usual.

 

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

!? How dare you? How can you consciously sit there and take joy in somebody being injured? How can you possibly call yourself a moral crusader if you dance in glee if someone even remotely related to the opposition of your agenda is injured or killed in some fashion?

You, sir, are lower than low... No, even lower than that. I can't even put into words to describe just how horrible you are.

I cannot wait for the day you end up in prison. It cannot come too soon for someone so vile.

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

Yeah, there's gotta be a law against misrepresenting yourself as a lawyer. Or is he of the school of thought that since Dr. Phil constantly misrepresents himself as a doctor, he can do it too?

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

 What a lovely christian you are.

 

Maybe you should re-examine your life.  You're taking pleasure in the pain and suffering of another man.  You were disbarred for ethical misconduct.  You haven't won a case in years.  You sent gay porn to judges.  You advocated the death of those who disagree with you.  You're a financial leech to your family's body.  You insult people at every turn.  Your book was an utter failure, and is openly mocked in most venues.  Perhaps your rules for "culture war" worked in the 1970's and 1980's, but this is the year 2008, Jack, and the generation that is coming (and has come) into power is tired of your lies and hatred.

 

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

I'm normally a peaceful and level-headed poster, but WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT?  Can someone please explain to me why Jack is allowed to call Dennis a Nazi, threaten to sue GP members and make light of someone getting shot?  If one of us did anything remotely similar, to Jack or otherwise, we'd be banned without a second's hesitation!!

AE: Oh come now, that's not true.  While I have edited a few posts, Thompson (and a few spambots) is the only account that has been banned this week.  Four times in fact.

I used to roll my eyes at people who suggested that GamePolitics gives Jack an inordinate amount of rope because he generates hits and traffic for the site.  But with every day that goes by, I see Jack getting away with more and more, and it's the same type of crap that got him banned in the LJ days.  Now, as much as I don't want to, I'm starting to wonder if maybe they were on to something.

Yeah, I was talking about either posting big for no apparent reason or posting above 36-point font. In this case, I had a reason, that being that I was providing emphasis (whoever took out my empty lines between the words is in BIG trouble, that was also part of the emphasis), and I kept it below 36-point by putting it at 24-point. Eville-1 your post was pointless.

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

what... are you serious?

so you claim in another thread, you have no problem with games and gamers, that you only want to get adult games out of the hands of kids. Then you say that you are GLAD SOMEBODY GOT SHOT 3 TIMES! just because they are a VOICE ACTOR! ffs.  Ill reapeat that cos i can hardly believe it. you are GLAD somebody got SHOT. wow... i dont know what to say.

When you claimed it was dennis making you look bad, ill repeat what i said in reply. No jack. Its comments THAT YOU MAKE that make you look bad. comments like this. Also.. is this not violating the comments policy (as usual). its sick.

you are a disgusting human being Jack.

 

look.. im kinda fedup with this site constantly being trolled by disbarredGuy. Hes sick. Can he not be IP banned? or is there now way you can get some kinda injunction against him, prohibiting him from making an account on this site? Its disgusting. He also babbled something about the holocaust in his insults yesterday, just to take a cheap shot. Its not funny. Its just downright disgusting.

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

Perhaps others will now understand why, when Jack plays his pity cards about being rushed to the hospital because he's having heart problems and having to care for a loved one with ovarian cancer, I sit here with a blank expression on my face and say, "And? So what?" 

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

Oh now I do all too well...ever since that one Bar official died in a tragedy, the Metal Gear forums, and things like this...his disgusting gloating over that caused any sympathy for Jack and his life to now equal to zero.

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

Unfortunately, Jack-o knows how to use proxies, so getting rid of him is kindahard...

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

He needs to be reported to his ISP...

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

Ah, Jackass, as always, delighting in the misery of others.  God knows you've tried to turn a profit off of tragedy before.

You really are a horrible little worm, aren't you? 

But think about this; at your funeral, what will people have to say about you?

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

wow... just wow... this is a new low for you jack. in my book you dont even deserve to be considered a human anymore.

I swear, every place I want to vacation in becomes a target for explosions.  Last month I was planning on going to Thailand and now there's chaos.  Then I thought that i've always wanted to see India, and since Thailand isn't safe now...

Now i'm thinking of going to Bali to do some scuba diving.  Lets see if i'm a prophet of destruction.

Re: Video Game Voice Actor Wounded in Mumbai Terror Attack

it's okay, you are way more likely to die of a taxi car accident in India then a terrorist attack, so dont' let this turn you away from visiting India.

Matthew WilsonOfcourse it does I never said it did not.though over time the death of NN will make backbone providers like Google, level3 and others stronger becouse most isps including the big ones can not provid internet without them. they can peer with smaller isps04/24/2014 - 1:54pm
E. Zachary KnightMatthew, and that still plays in Google's favor over their smaller rivals who don't have the muscle to stand up to ISPs.04/24/2014 - 1:45pm
