XCOM 2 Gets Bob Ross Voice Pack in New Mod

"We don't make mistakes, we have happy accidents."

23 Comments

Bob Ross was known for his happy, carefree attitude. His inviting demeanour made it feel like he wanted the whole world to enjoy painting, and now, thanks to one modder, he's been immortalized as an alien killer in XCOM 2.

Steam user and modder Tdc733 created a Bob Ross voice pack that lets you customize one of your soldiers to say some of the delightful artist's most popular quotes (via PC Gamer). The mod currently has over 75 different phrases from Ross, including "Here comes the fun," "Let's build a happy little cloud," and "We don't make mistakes, we have happy accidents."

Bob Ross made headlines when his show "The Joy of Painting" was streamed as a marathon on Twitch.

You can check out the Bob Ross voice pack mod for yourself right here. Tdc733 also created a voice pack mod for Arnold Schwarzenegger, which features lines from Predator, Jingle All The Way, and Batman & Robin.

If you're interested in more XCOM 2 mods, you can check out the Star Wars Helmets mod, which lets you suit up your soldiers as Stormtroopers, Scout troopers, and Boba Fett. Another mod gives you a puppy that shoots like a real gun.

Wake me when somebody makes a pro-wrestling super-mod. "Bang bang!" "Dig it!" "That's not a bad thing! That's a GOOD thing!" "And what'cha gonna do..." "Stone Cold 3:16 says I just kicked your ass!" "Ooooh yeah!" "It's VADER TIME!!" "4 Life" "Rest in peace" "You're next!" "If you smeeeeeeeelll what the Rock is cookin'" "Slobber knocker!" "There's pandemonium in the ring!" "Everybody's got a price" "WWWWOOOOOOOO!" "Pipe down and let the ladies see what a REAL man looks like" "Time to play the game!" "Puppies! Puppies!!"

On second thought, leave that last one out. Jeez Lawler - I know you're supposed to be a heel but come on.

One of the greatest soldiers of our nation through pacifism and art, Bob Ross in Xcomm 2, is just brilliant!

Next I would like to see Sewing with Nancy, "I'll smack the palsy off the side of your face and onto the other side." or

"Anytime is stitchin' time."

"Today the paint salesman's in town."

I don't know why, but when I heard that line I damn near shit my pants from laughing so hard. Fun fact, Bob Ross retired from the US military after twenty years of service.

"I was the guy who makes you scrub the latrine, the guy who makes you make your bed, the guy who screams at you for being late to work. The job requires you to be a mean, tough person. And I was fed up with it. I promised myself that if I ever got away from it, it wasn't going to be that way anymore."

(sings) I'm so glad you could join me today,

so I could teach you how to feel some join when you paint,

you're a moody little genius, always so serious, I know, you must be on your blue period.

I'm sure this is because of how many viewers including myself have been watching ol bob on twitch in the creative channel. Brings back memories when he used to air on the tube television in the early 90"s

Well, there's a definite age divide between those who watched the running shows and those who haven't.

Actually been showing them on twitch here recently in the creative channel. Got me all excited when I noticed them for the first time like a week ago.

My brother made an Alan Partridge voice pack. Jacka-nacka-nory

There's also an Arnold Schwarzenegger one that's highly amusing.

Still waiting for someone to do Jeeves and Wooster.
