  2. It's so funny hearing a conversation in a game between a voice actor who is good at what they do, and a voice actor who just sounds flat.

    Persona 3 sounds perfectly fine, until Fuuka opens her mouth.

  3. I'm so happy that I can talk about Sonic GAMES again. I can only spend so long confused at the movie.

  4. yup, knuckles definitely has a new voice, and it SUUUUUUCKS

    1. Blue Blood

      Sometimes he sounds absolutely fine. Others he sounds incredibly try-hard and it's awful.

      I wonder why there were so many (will at least 2) re-casts for TSR. Both Silver and Knuckles had great performances in Forces

      Whenever a voice is changed, an adjustment period for the fanbase and the actor who is new to the character is over the horizon. It's typically not a good thing to keep doing this so often but whatever. Why even bother expecting any semblance of consistency...?

      It has to be a pay rate thing. I mean, that was presumably the reason Higgins stopped voicing Tails after LW (though at least with Tails, Villard came in and didn't miss a single beat).

      Anyways... if there's any good to take from this, at least the changes were done for a spin-off game instead of a main title or something. Hopefully the VAs will adjust by then.

      @Strickerx5 Remember when Kirk Thornton debuted as Shadow in Free Riders (which somehow has higher production values in its cutscenes than TSR) and proceeded to chew scenery in every game since? And yet he delivers such a good performance as Orbot.

      Knuckles really does sound fine in a lot of the TSR dialogue, but it's too inconsistent. And it's a shame because Willingham DID improve massively from his Dan Green impersonations back in Free Riders. Forces Knuckles sounded great. On part with Scott Drier, even if the two takes were rather different. If his new VA can get the consistency, I'll be happy with it.

      Silver I'm also unsure about. Flynn sounded like his original voice, but somehow less irritating. The new voice is completely different, but I don't think I dislike it. It's just strange getting used to something so different after approximately 13 years.

      Other Knuckles voices have sounded natural, but this new actor sounds like he's trying too hard putting on a "tough guy" voice to play Knuckles. It's too unnatural, that it causes a severe disconnect between the voice and the character.

      I have gotten a general idea of what Knuckles sounds like thanks to his previous voices, and this new one is really trying too hard that he doesn't feel like Knuckles.

    6. Blue Blood

      That's the thing though, I don't get that impression in all of his lines. Most the the in-race clips have the try-hard tough guy vibe that's unnatural and off. But a lot of (not all) of his story dialogue actually sounds decent. 

    7. Dr. Detective Mike

      The one story dialogue clip I listened to started off with him sounding fine and then ended with him giving me doofy Storm the Albatross vibes. 

      He's new to Knuckles so he'll need some time. Then he'll get replaced and another guy will have to try and get used to playing Knux...

      I really don't want to give him crap for it, every new actor will have some difficulty adjusting, and Knuckles's new actor has his good lines. It's just a bit off, as Knuckles has had probably the most consistent voice direction, where this sounds so obviously different. I hope the new actor finds a way to improve.

      Silver isn't too bad. It's no Flynn, but the "anime protagonist" voice fits strangely well with his character.

      Bryce Papenbrook being called the "Anime protagonist" voice is hilarious 

    10. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      @Kuzu the Boloedge Prepare to laugh even more because @Polkadi~♪ is spot on with that comparison. Silver literally is Anime Protagonist the Hedgehog now.

    11. Kuzu the Boloedge

      Kuzu the Boloedge

      That's exactly why I laughed, it's an hilariously fitting title for him lol

      Oh snap. I didn't know people besides me called Silver "anime protagonist" voice in reaction to Bryce.

  5. I mean, aside from Mega Man... But he actually made it in, so I guess that doesn't count.
  6. The honourifics is probably to be polite, but the tilde is to prolong a sound. Where we might do “Ah...” as “Ahhh...,” would happen as “あ…” being ”あ〜…“ It’s different with things like shouting that we might do as “AAAAA”, because that becomes “あああああ” instead. In a nutshell, it’s just standard writing.
  7. Brand new location introduced in this issue. Looks like a large metropolis by the coast.
  8. As I browse for Mega Man figures, I tend to come across toys for the Fully Charged series.

    Gee, they really did Air Man dirty...

  9. imagine being the person who bought sonic labyrinth on release day

      Yeah I wish that had been me, alas

  10. Ooh, as part of a project in one of my classes, we're to do a project of our own, based off what we want to do.

    Things have lined up that I could possibly be making my own animated short film. I mean, it won't be much, as I'm working individually, but it'll be a first for me.

  11. I haven't posted in a while. A fair while ago, my avatar has been changed to a character named Gō Mifune, better known as Speed Racer, from his old 60s manga and animated series. Why did I choose to change my avatar to him? Well, I like Speed Racer. There's a charm to it that I simply really enjoy, having even grown an interest in him as a child when the movie came out (underrated classic, imo). I would like to collect his manga some day, of which I found was actually quite popular in my country. Have you ever noticed Speed Racer's effeminate eyes? I won't change it until my next SSMBversary this time, as I wish to keep a consistent image. My signature now has a picture of Mega Man from the stage select of Mega Man 11. Go Mega Man, fight for everlasting peace! I also changed my member title to lyrics from a song from Daytona USA. Takenobu Mitsuyoshi really made a fun and enjoyable soundtrack to an arcade classic, for sure!
  12. Japanese games have spoiled me on opening movies. Goddamnit, I want an intro on the next Call of Duty.

  13. Go on, Shadow... Don't you support gay rights?

  14. The Minecraft soundtrack is the greatest of all time.

  15. Every time I rewatch Into the Spider-Verse, I notice more and more things, and it shocks me how a movie of this quality could even EXIST.

    Things like the warm colours of Aunt May's house washing out once a fight scene starts, as well as the calmness of the camera composition before the fight starting to wobble with more urgent movements once Miles enters the scene to highlight the incoming intensity. And in that mentioned fight scene, Peni Parker is literally sitting in the corner just watching the fight before she enters her robot, what with the fact that she can't fight on her own.

    And I have a newfound appreciation for the credits, because that is a visual treat. No, a visual dessert!

    Watching this film in the highest quality possible is a must.

      Its actually gotten the attention of Japanese animators too to the point that some of them have the mindset of "we need to top this."

      the future of animation is gonna be wild af

      I just hope for the day that western animation takes note of this too. France knows what's up, but other than that... Animated movies that push the boundaries, or at least are visually fun to watch, is something that mainly Pixar (and sometimes Disney) push for, while other studios don't really look into it. Occasionally, you have the fluke, but that's it.

      I just hope that, thanks to Spider-Man, people can see just what animation can do. It's an incredible medium bogged down by a condescending mentality about it "being for kids", all thanks to the abundance of children's animated TV shows way back when. Truth is, there is so much more to it all. Animation can bring alive a story where reality finds it difficult to.
