Master Chief Invades Calgary Entertainment Expo

See that grinning moustached guy over there? That's Steve Downes, the actor who does the voice-over work for Master Chief in the Halo series.

Now before you get all huffy puffy on me, yes I'm aware that sometimes it can be a little weird seeing people behind the iconic voices in gaming. But look on the bright side - the next you hear Master Chief telling you he's going to finish the fight you know whose gum flappers those words came out of.

If you want a chance to meet the man behind the Master, he'll be at the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo on April 25-26.

On top of the Chief (not literally), the Expo will also be featuring a number of video game artists, writers, and celebrities. The current line-up also includes:

Josh Ortega, Writer for Gears of War 2 as well scripting the Gears of War comic books

Pure Pwnage members Jeremy, FPS Doug, Kyle & teh_Masterer

Wade Schin, Artist at Valve (Team Fortress 2, Half-Life 2: Episode 2, The Orange Box)

THWOMP!, Music band devoted to playing classic 16-bit songs

Overall, it's a decent line-up. And hey, if those people are not enough to entice you, there is always the whimsical (or scary) expo cosplayers.
