Ryan Drummond Almost Returned

Recommended Posts

I'm not a troll, I'm speaking from my heart. I care about Sonic just as much as the next fan.

When you come into a topic like this as a new member and start toting your opinion around as fact, I immediately think troll. It's happened way too many times for me to give the benefit of the doubt anymore. Just cool your jets and show a little more tact. xP

I can't help but find it odd that Ryan Drummond, whose name is rarely known by anyone who isn't a Sonic fan, thinks he's too good for a deal that all of these voice actors were perfectly happy with.

Let's take a closer look at the quote you took from the article:

Then when the actual offer came to my agent, it was a complete joke. They asked me to leave my union (which is how I make a living), do all kinds of work for no compensation, etc. It was a real slap in the face. I really don’t see it ever happening.

Then when the actual offer came to my agent, it was a complete joke. They asked me to leave my union (which is how I make a living),

They asked me to leave my union (which is how I make a living)

(which is how I make a living)

Fucking bastard wanting to make ends meet. Who the fuck does he think he is?

Edit: Did not realize Soniman had used the "zoom in on a quote" effect above me. I feel ninja'd.

Ryan almost returned? Good thing he didn't! Even Jason sucked less! I'd go as far to say he and the other Dreamcast voice actors helped ruin Sonic the Hedgehog.

>Make an account on Sonic fansite

>First post is saying many fans' fav Sonic voice actor sucked balls and ruined the series

>"I'm totally not trolling guys"

Mmmhmm

Come on man, really?

That's correct. Sonic's movement may be shit, but so is his movement in every other game as of late. No Sonic games capture the controls anymore, but at least Sonic 4 doesn't have any of the stupid things Adventure introduced. Like voice actors who fail being one thing.

Yeah I'm not trolling. My honest opinion is that Ryan sucked, and therefore I made a valid post. Also in my opinion Sonic games are better off with no dialogue at all.

Grow up peeps, learn to handle the fact that some people have different opinions. You can assume 'troll' if you like and if you have evidence of trolling take it to the staff. If you knacker discussions by accusing people of trolling then you're contributing to the deterioration of the goddamn thread yourself. Try and cool off instead of waiting like snakes to strike at the first sign of contrary fucking points of view.

Apologies for my part in that.

Anyway, I think another thing about the union debacle we're forgetting is that, unlike Roger or Jason, it's very likely that Ryan's primary job at this point in his life is not voice work but rather stage and clown/mime work, hence why it might be harder for him to sever union ties than it would be for voice actors who are making a living not being unionized anyway but are nonetheless getting a lot more bigger and substantive roles to make up for whatever terms they accepted from Sega. Remember: Jason and Roger are both regulars on tv shows now: Pokemon and Regular Show respectively. Ryan is.... uhh.

I did like Ryan's Sonic when I was younger, and I would have most certainly given him another chance at the blue dude. But, maybe this was for the best. Like it's been said multiple times in this thread, choosing to come back would have probably got him broke and that's no fun. =/ I wish the best to him and I hope some fans don't give Roger junk just because of this.

It's weird how nobody comented about the Sega's wish of bring Ryan back was a hint that they were considering make Sawnicz Adbenturee Tree.

Also, Hogfather what are you doing with Internet Explorer? XD

^ This guy knows what hes talking about.

One thing I gotta say though is that I think despite the fact

Drummonds probably not comming back I dont think its

irrational to think in a weird way he almost has more of a chance of

coming back than people originally thought.

Sounds like allot of people at Sega really like him.

So thats cool at least.

OK, I may have jumped the gun with the Sega hate and don't really know how the ins-and-outs of unions work, but that still doesn't change the fact that Sega told he had the job, got everything prepared for a meeting, and decided to bring up unforseen terms and agreements. I'm not saying Sega are wrong for doing what they did, but they really should have handled that situation better.

>"Meh, it seemed more like restating the obvious that Sega are a bunch of hacks in my opinion"

>Implying there's no irony on a vocaloid fan saying SEGA are hacks and douches

>implying

See I can play 4chan too. What's next, shall I sage this thread?

Sega suck at doing business.....then again this isn't exactly news.

I've yet to see evidence they did any bad business decision in this whole thing. Don't confuse "SEGA didn't do what I wanted!" with "SEGA has terrible business sense!"

That's for Capcom discussions.

Well, I don't really give enough of a damn to read the actual article, but I scanned through this thread, and this is what I've gathered.

-Sega sux0rz !!!111

-He didn't like the offered pay, and we have no idea what said pay was.

-He couldn't leave his union because it's how he makes a living, and apparently SEGA are assholes for that, even though we don't know their reason behind making that one of the conditions, nor do we know if they were actually AWARE the union is how he made is living.

-He was told they were hiring him and then took back their word blah blah blah and when they were about to finalize the deal, HE turned it down.

I'm not going to call everyone nostalgiafags or anything, but I too would like more info before making assumptions.
