    Best taunt:

    "HA HA HA!" - Male Voice 2

    UT99 taunts were awesome and had style! They were varied, interesting to listen to and not monotone. I hope Epic also includes the old ones.
    If you compare the taunts in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCfqoUIug64, you clearly hear the that the UT99 robot voice has a slight background humming and sounds better than the others without it. I really disliked the taunts in UT3 that I turned them off, because they were always shouting and had that tough-guy-attitude. Like swearing to look tough, while you don't need swearing or "your-mama stuff" to make taunts awesome. For me it makes it more annoying and unbelievable. Because come on, "I am the Alpha and the Omega", "Witness my perfection", "That had to hurt!" sounds way better than "You *******" or "Eat **** and die".

    He's proving my point here:

    Also, censorship is fine so long as it is optional (child mode, whatever), but absolutely imperative a completely uncensored mode or option is included. None of that "F yeah" ********.

    As for the announcer, bring back the original (UT99), or if he's no longer available, at least the original voice filter. Not that Prozac-junkie sports announcer from 2k3. UT3s is alright, but the original is (and always will be) best - think about it, the original UT99's announcer is the one which lead to an entire generation of rip-offs in other games, such as Halo.

    M-M-M-M-MONSTER KILL, Kill, kill...
    Somebody give this man a cigar or a beer or whiskey or whatever, because he BINGOed it with what is quoted in bold. This was what I hated about UT2004, that all the auto-taunts were snuffed out in server mode ( except when you got fragged ), making custom voice packs totally redundant & there was too much dead air playing on any type of server in UT2004. Please DON'T make the same mistake with this next UT because what good will it be to make custom voice packs & add them to servers if nobody can hear them? Do it like it was done in original UT (1999), PLEASE.

    Somebody made an awesome add-on voice pack for Xan in 2k4 with F-bombs, and all kinds of nasty stuff that I had nicely bound with the speech binder. Yes we need a speech binder!

    As for the announcer, I'd almost say don't bother recording new ones at this point - just allow choosing from the ones already made over all of the games. Would be nice to have new ones but conserving developer bandwidth for the more important stuff is key right now.

    As for taunts, the voice taunts of UT1 are still sticking in my head (You like that?, yes I do). More so I would like to see animated gestures return. Nothing like the good old thrust during the end-game scoreboard view.
    For me its the way The UT1 announcer can say it, he says badassl, cruel and evil, yet he says it so calmly, and it still sounds so amazing. It just flows so naturally. No need for screaming it.

    Forgot all about these - yes absolutely! Was always fun giving it the old thrust at the end of a game while all the 'gg's' were said

    I don't think that was Don LaFontaine.

    I don't think he ever was a UT announcer. The UT3 "reward announcer" was Fred Tatasciore and I'm pretty sure he also did the announcements for the previous UT iterations.
