The other well-known character in Tales From The Borderlands is non-other than, Scooter.
Gearbox Software’s Chief Creative Champion, Mikey Neumann, does the voice of Scooter and he confest that he had a hard time adjusting his voice to the dialogue. Because Scooter has an enthusiastic voice that screams most of the time. Therefore, it was challenging to bring the voice back down for some serious dialogue.
