** Same as the voice acting problem for most games in the 90's: no acting instructions. They were also possibly recording each character's lines separately, as was the practice then.

Also, picking up random people off the street and casting them for voice acting is ''not'' a viable alternative, remember [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil1 "jill sandwhich" and "OH MY COD"?]]

** My guess is that it was a mistanslation, perhaps hate would've gone first before destroy. Like "I'll hate mankind for what they did to the [[strike:life]]oyfe cycle, and then I'll destroy them as punishment for their foolishness" or something like that.

** For that record, why does the Magician hate the AMS agents so much?


Added DiffLines:

** It is possible that G might just be that badass, or he was that good in hiding. Besides, the zombies in the library were lying down before James and Gary entered, so G must've snuck in to avoid having his face torn off.

** Early supplementary material, namely the manual for the Saturn port, seem to imply G is a robot or android or at least cybernetically enhanced. Though this idea has clearly been dropped since then, super science machine people are probably harder to kill or somewhat self-repairing.

* How did G survive long enough for James and Gary to find him in HOTD 2? There were zombies crawling all around outside and INSIDE the library. Odds are he should've been killed off pretty fast, especially since we don't see a gun anywhere on him and he's grasping his side in pain. Plus, the first boss insists that G is a lost cause and is implied to have already killed him, but it seems he and the horde simply didn't finish him off, so what's he bragging about?

*** General computer failure.
*** The Magicians newer form having some kind of shield that confounds electronic analysis.
*** The Magicians newer form having genetics so radically different from the original that the PDA can't make heads or tails of it.

** In HOTD2, the information regarding the Magicians weak spots are just scribbled down on a convenient piece of paper. In 4, a PDA analyses and points out the weak spots. Reasons for it not picking up on the Magicians weakness could be;

** Equally plausible is the idea that the Magician was revived and rebuilt purely as a stop-gap measure, possibly as either a temporary guardian or commander of the undead forces while the Emperor was still in development. This explains why the only reconstruction work done on him appears to be metal spines holding his crippled limbs together. Considering he crashes through a window at the top of the DBR building to confront James and Gary, it may be that he was still in the process of being fully "healed" as well and was never meant for an engagement, but impulsively crashed out of his "chamber" and into the courtyard just to fight the agents of the AMS he seems to hate so much.
