Ryan Drummond Almost Returned

Recommended Posts

Basically this. The other two may care, but certainly not as much.

I also remember watching an interview with Mike Pollock where he said he doesn't care for the series and has no interest in the games at all. He's a fantastic voice actor, but if you're just doing it for the money and don't care for the craft, then I'm not interested. No matter how good you are.

Whoa dude, I've never heard Mike say that about the franchise. In fact Eggman has become one of his favorite roles. The man has done more fan interviews than any other actor ever involved with the franchise.

Mike even attended Summer of Sonic a few years ago, and he wasn't even invited as a guest. That's sounds like someone who cares about the character to me.

I'll give my thoughts on the actual subject later.

So another "Fuck you Sega!" thread. Nice. After creating the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise that we all love, this is how you repay them.

Two hectic asian guys created Sonic, and they aren't even part of the team anymore. Your point is rendered null in any instance xD

Please don't turn this into a Roger vs Ryan over who has better/cheesier lines, please. sleep.png

No I'm turning this into there's more people who take things way too seriously. I was making a joke........

(Heck, being a VA in general doesn't even pay the bills by itself unless you're in Japan or something.)

Just a side note, but I hear the VA industry in Japan is even more brutal. All of those drama CDs, music CDs, live-action and stage gigs from them exist for a more blatant reason than just expanding their artistic horizons. Dig even deeper and you'll find VAs sometimes having completely different careers just to get to a livable income (I hear Junichi's actually done a stint as an English teacher), and who knows of those who have dropped out altogether because they couldn't even get their foot in the door, even after actual schooling for it. Unless you're Takehito Koyasu or someone like that who's ridiculously popular and can get a role just by showing up, I would think the market is more favorable elsewhere. xP

Then look up the SAGExpo 2012 interview. It doesn't matter what he does, he directly said he doesn't care/has no interest.

My god there's more of them xD

>Makes statement everyone's tired of that was begging to be corrected.

>"Why so serious you guys?"

How did he say it? Calmly, casually, and respectfully, or "screw this franchise- RAWR!"?

You can't not care about a franchise in any capacity and simultaneously fly to a different country to attend a fan convention of said franchise with no compensation involved. Cognitive dissonance of the highest order.

^This too.

Junichi should voice Sonic in Japanese and English! Who cares if he has an accent while speaking English? This could be a new thing for Sonic! That awesome foreign dude that you can't really understand very well, but is just so lively and so gosh darn fun that you just love 'em!

I wasn't implying that Ryan sucked because he was given shitty lines. I was making a freaking joke. I even said 'but seriously' after the joke to make it even more obvious. Why do some of you people take everything literally?

To be fair, what they did to Ryan really was nothing short of dickish on their part.

It was a dick move, but we got Roger in the end. We are lucky we didn't get a worse voice actor.

Where insulting them due to their generally dickish behavior regarding Ryan Drummond, them creating Sonic isn't even relevant to our gripes with them in this instance.

So you're telling Sega to fuck off? Have you heard Sega's part of the story on why they want Ryan out of his union? We are just assuming Sega did all of this to ruin Ryan? After they want him back so much?!

Okay, I'll change it. This is how you repay Sega after keeping Sonic the Hedgehog alive.

Well, I apologize, but you did lay it on a bit thick with the meme-ish pic. I honestly thought you were trying to get a rise out of people in the thread.

Because we've heard it all before a million times. We know Heroes has bad writing and we don't need to be reminded every time Ryan Drummond is brought up.

Can't people just shrug off the joke? I've never seen people joke about Heroes' writing except for 1 or 2 times on a Sonic forum. Anyway, I never hated Ryan but I prefer Roger. It may have just been poor direction but I like Roger's more mature take. (Which is probably just good direction along with his talent).

Nah I'm sorry too, I admit the troll face pic could get that reaction haha.

They keep the series alive because it benefits them. There's really no reason to be thankful for that (Especially after considering what they've done with the series in the past :-P)

Hogfather raised some good counter points. It seems it got lost in the crowd though.

Agreed, though there was also the part in the interview about Ryan getting most of his income from said Union. I mean, the man's got two kids now, 'gotta keep the cash-flow coming in.
