It's his Rastafarian accent. I can understand him for the most part, but sometimes he just babbles.

I can understand bit of it and when Niko replies it often makes much more sense. I am waiting for someone to transcribe the on screen subtitles of all the comments he makes. It's worthy of doing if someone can do it right!! That's another challenge I think.

It seems like he was easy to understand in the first few missions then it just slowly degraded into deep rasta talk

*and he says "I and I" way to much I want to choke him.

He always says 'Breda' too whatever that mean's and 'Seen', I have subtitles turned on and have to press start and go to the dialogue to make out what he is saying by reading it over and over...irritating and he talks too fast aswell.

Someone here has to be rather keen on his language use, so I await them to tackle it... If not I'll take down the subtitle scenes I recorded off the screen and someone could help translate them! I could make a guess on some or half of it. I am talking about his comments when "dating" Niko on a night out as well, he and Niko discuss Real Badman and then you have to deal with R. Badman on a mission, so there's even MORE work! tounge.gif notify.gif

Bambaclat, a rastafarian swear word that you could actually get arrested for saying in Jamaica. I just saw that on TV the other day, haha, that's about all I know. I just go by how he sounds throughout what he says. One time I heard him loud and clear, "the fertilizer, chemicals be messing with my brain" when he was explaining how the weed was messing with his dome. Word. I related to that.

I worked with a Jamaican as well and he was a VERY, very cool dude. He didn't stay long but I understood virtually everything he said so Little Jacob is not a stereotypical Jamaican I would say! biggrin.gif
