Re: LOS trilogy had limited budget

Plus all those celebrity voice actors may have cost them a whole bunch of their budget too.

Re: LOS trilogy had limited budget

How on Earth did they afford all those celebrities with such a small budget and why did they choose to use it on that of all things in the first place? Certainly explains why some aspects of the game were a bit... lacking.

$1M per game? How the heck did they afford Mark Hamill in DOTD?

Probably couldn't afford more than a couple lines from him but still wanted to get his name on the box.
