Quote:
Daisuke Gouri passed away this past Sunday at around 3:00 pm in Tokyo after being discovered wandering the streets in Nakano ward, blood dripping from his arm, before collapsing face-down. He was 57 years old.

Besides an impressive list of anime credits, Gouri also voiced Bass Armstrong in the Dead or Alive series, Mister Hercule Satan in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai and Heihachi Mishima in the Tekken games ó among other titles that include Metal Gear Solid 2, Soulcalibur and Final Fantasy XII.

According to the report, a knife or some kind of sharp object was discovered near the scene as well as Gouri's last will and testament. Authorities are investigating this as a possible suicide.


As much as I hated Volf, awesome voice over for him.

Here is a list of other things he has done, quite famous in video games http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daisuke_G%C5%8Dri#Television_animation

OMG I saw this on kotaku a few minutes ago but had no idea he voiced Volf.

He is my favourite boss in NG2. R.I.P Volf's voice. Sad

EDIT: Just checking btw, did he also voice Bass in DOA? I think the voice is the same when I hear it.

I notice he did. I thought the voices were the same. Thanks for the extra link Sath.

Damn ... he had an amazing voice. I actually like Volf BECAUSE he was basically a Bass were wolf, lol.
Gouri, you will be missed. That makes me sad and wonder how they are going to do if DOA5 comes out.
Then again, I think Leon voice actor passed away before DOA4.

Got that right.
Alexei is also voiced by Hayate's voice actor.

@Prime

Well, remixing some sound effects/voices should explain it xD

I knew it was him the first time I heard him ... probably cause I played the sh*t out of DOA games and he's a recurring character since DOA2. He also does the voice of a character from Code Geass which is an anime I enjoyed and watched a lot.
Then again, it's my understanding a lot of people played NGS2 with English dubbing, so they couldn't possibly notice this ...

I think it was a cool idea to have DOA voice actors make cameos in NG like this. A pity Gouri won't ever be heard again Sad

The reason I never noticed it is because of the way his voice goes high as Alexei. But it is common for companies to use the same actors for games because then fans don't feel as edgy. It is a pity he died. If they have the voice though they could tweak it for lines in DOA 5 couldn't they?
