Wesker's Extra Report - Narrated by D.C. Douglas

Following hot on the heels of our comprehensive Developer Interviews Database, it's time for another early Christmas present considering you have all been good little boys and girls this year...

It is our pleasure to present an exclusive reading of Wesker's Extra Report narrated by none other than D.C. Douglas himself as Albert Wesker! He has very graciously reprised his role especially for Project Umbrella to record this little-known but significant piece of Biohazard lore.

Special thanks go to our very own STARS_TyranT for arranging this special treat and of course to D.C. himself for taking the time out of his busy schedule to give this gift to the community.

Wesker's Extra Report

Please enjoy and on behalf of us all here at Project Umbrella have a very happy Christmas!

I recently checked CODE:Veronica's cutscenes and man, not that I don't like the work of Richard Waugh, but DC Douglas has grown in me as the best Wesker voice actor yet.

Also, so many gifts! Yey!

That was awesome! Major props to DC for doing this. He is a legend making lots of easter eggs for the fans. Nothing against Waugh or his fans but Douglas gets my vote.

It was an honour to share a Skype call with DC. quality.

any I echo Batman's big thanks to STARS Tyrant for organising this. I feel content like this really adds to the report and enhances it greatly.

a wonderful audio file.

Absolutely, Nick. I'm in total agreement with you there, I think a lot of thanks have to go to STARS Tyrant. Without him we wouldn't have any of this, and of course to DC. I think he would have quite happily talked to us all day if he could.

I completed this project years ago in the same style as WR I, with a good impersonator.

Now, the original translation has been butched. Truely insulting and unoriginal.

The original translation was wrong in several areas. DC actually recorded an early revision, rather than the current one we have. But there's not much difference aside from minor grammar changes and synonyms.

And let's be real; impersonators =/= the actors.

And that video only contains half the actual report.

The version sent to DC was the one lifted straight from the pages of this very site though? From this page? http://projectumbrella.net/articles/Weskers-Extra-Report

Indeed, but there was a new revision done shortly after (before I knew about this). Just inconvenient timing, but not a problem. Only slight differences.

Now I wish you could get him to read Wesker's Report 2.

TheBatman (not verified)

He's already been doing that for another site. He records one part of the report per year for them. residentevildatabase.com. So far he has done the first two with a third to come later this year.

Important to note that for WRII, REDatabase are relying on a badly translated version.

TheBatman (not verified)

Well yeah there is that, but I wasn't going to point that out out of graciousness really. We didn't ask him to do WR2 because of the volume of the material and because it's already an ongoing project for another site.

Well, the man has embraced the role of Wesker far more than some of his other voice actors. What I've watched of that Wesker's Report 2 reading is great.

Unbelievable. All the hate and/or mockery for D.C. emanating from this site, now this? It's BIOHAZARD 5 all over again. I won't hold my breath for the same to occur for BIOHAZARD 6, but one can never be too sure.

If you're referring to making fun of his "ZOMBAYZ" line in Umbrella Chronicles, that is neither hate nor mockery, it is mere jesting over a funny line. I don't know what your sudden problem is or even what you're referring to when you bring up BIO5 and BIO6.

TheBatman (not verified)

Yeah, I'm not seeing your point really. We had a giggle on the UC podcast but we also acknowledged there and then that it was as a result of Capcom requesting him to imitate Peter Jessop and his general unfamiliarity with the character, not to mention atrocious script. He also elaborated this further in our interview when he was all primed to do Jessop at the last minute then they played Richard Waugh to add to his confusion. And as far as I'm aware, pretty much everyone on this site has always acknowledged DC's, performance in Bio 5 is the definitive voice of the character.
