I only switch to Japanese if the dubbing is shit. It's not in this game so I keep it in English.

Yeah, KOF XII had English. So when they left it in KOF XIII I wondered why they did that.

I will say one thing, Cromartie High is an anime I love watching dubbed.

i tend to have everything in english as id rather be able to understand what they are saying. plus certain characters sound a LOT better in english. you can actually tell that morrigan is scottish and that cammy is english for example which is totally lost in the japanese voices

I know that in Tekken 6 Leo was not speaking german, hence my statement, but I just checked TTT2 Leo she said "Überlass das mir Partner" in my face, so you're right. That's pretty awesome! I always loved that about Tekken and now they perfected it! good job namco!
Tho, Lei and Zafina speak english and I dunno why. For Law it makes sense since he lives in america, but isn't Lei a chinese policemen? Lars also speaks japanese instead of swedish. Well anyway - it's still awesome.

I picked Japanese, since I played the undub of both games first. That, and I absolutely love Elizabeth's Japanese voice.

The thing is, licensing expansive JP voice tracks is expensive (and yes, they do have to license them) is expensive and has prevented other games (including P4G and Growlanser IV) from having JP voice tracks. Atlus doesn't make piles of money, most games having dual audio is still unlikely. Persona 4 Arena gets away with it because it's not a huge, expansive RPG in terms of voiced dialogue.

Persona games don't have dual audio because Index are crazy reverse import paranoid bastards. They only managed to talk them into doing dual audio P4A (which was sort of in by default given the developer and standard for a genre that didn't even get English voices until recently) with that stupid region locking.
They're localized by the US subsidiary anyways.

sadly it seems no company considers to release 2 versions: dubbed an non-dubbed with subs. the only official newer game that I know of that does it is the FF 13-2 Asia Edition which features jap text with english texts. that way they don't have to fear reverse import (which is not a factor for the main series anyways because the main series gets such a SERIOUS headstart in japan that it wouldn't be beneficial to import anyway; also the text would be all in english, so it's useless for about 95% of all japanese people), and every customer will be happen.
I don't see dual audio that much of a problem. even fan made undub projects get it nailed down rather quickly. if you develop with that in mind it becomes as mundane as switching a flip.

I would change mine to Japanese, but Kanji's voice actor has convinced me to stick with English.

I'm an ex-anime fan. Two things really turned me off from the stuff after a while:
1) The realization that most of it is trash.
2) People like you who don't have the first clue what they're talking about.

I tend to like the characters to speak the language they actually speak. Sadly, this isn't usually an option - for SSFIV, for example, it usually results in 'Western' characters speaking English and 'Eastern' ones speaking Japanese.
Ideally, though, El Fuerte would speak Spanish, Ken English, Juri Korean, Honda Japanese, etc...
Sometimes, though (Soul Calibur V) the English acting, or script, is so awful I switch it to Japanese. Ignorance can be bliss..

Holy fuck. A Hitler comparison? For responding to a post?
Hey jackass, just as you're allowed to express your own wildly uneducated opinions about dubs and subs, I'm allowed to say you don't have a clue, on account of you not having a clue. It doesn't make me Hitler, you stupid fuck.
Some people's children, seriously.

Mostly using Japanese whenever it's possible, I hate dubbing just like many other people seem to do as well. Dubs never sound right.
Still, games are pretty much the only place where you can change the language and actually enjoy it to some degree, unlike anime or other shows where dubbing is pure self-torture.

Said it before, saying it again: language should be an option on character select. I think it's totally fair that if you, say, like Japanese Yukiko and I like English Yukiko, we should both get to hear that in the same match.

That reminds me of when I was watching some major earlier this year, and some guy actually backed out of UMvC3 character select and to options so that he could change Vergil's voice to Japanese. Because he wanted to have it that way, no real other reason. Fucking really?
