The Inner Gamer,

240: Shadowkeep, Apex Legends and Claptrap Voice Actor Jim Foronda

October 07, 2019

This week we dive deep into Destiny 2 Shadowkeep. We share all the good and the bad of this new expansion that takes us back to the moon. It brought Austin back, will it bring you back? We also dive into the new map from Apex Legends World’s Edge. It’s quite a change from the previous one but it’s a breath of fresh air to have a brand new design underway!

For our news this week, Blizzard really wants Overwatch characters in Super Smash Bros. Ubisoft removes some of their microtransactions, Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to PC and Ms. Marvel was revealed in the new Avengers video game trailer.

If that wasn’t enough, we have a really exciting special guest for you all this week! Jim Foronda plays the voice of Claptrap in Borderlands 3 and he joins us to talk all about it! We discuss his early days getting into voice acting after leaving the advertising industry. Then we explore his long history with Gearbox Software voicing characters in Borderlands 2, Battleborn and now Borderlands 3. We explore some of the hidden secrets in the game, talk about his favorite weapons and his favorite moments. It’s a fun conversation you won’t want to miss!

You can find Jim on Twitter @JimForonda.
