How can we improve the voice acting in today's fighting games


#1

In your opinion.

I’m watching my friend play VF5 on the PS3 right now and it’s horrible x_x


#2

Umm…why not just turn the volume on mute and play your own music…:wonder:


#3

You know VF would not be the same without bad voice acting you know that?

It’s like done on purpose, VF without the hilarious voice acting would totally blow.


#4

Rage:
That doesn’t change the fact that alot of voice actors are pure shit.


#5

All fighting games must have campy voice acting. It is law.


#6

actually, a lot of fighting games get many respected/famous voice actors as part of their cast. the prime example of this is guilty gear series.

it’s just that certain games sound bad simply for the fact that they have horrible engrish… like vf series.

Are you O.K.?

BUSTA WOLF!!!


#8

True which is why you should just have the sound effects off period, maybe keep the BGM on but turn off the damn sound effects if it bugs you that badly.


#9

they should let 4kids pick the voice actors


#10

southtown character engrish (terry, geese, etc.) is legendary :frowning:

English KOFMI2 = oh god no


#11

the speech is geared mainly toward japanese ppl.

To have new voice files recorded and put in is a localization cost that is basically unjustifiable. It won’t sell more games. So yeah, we’re stuck with VF5 voices.


#12

u know what fighting games needs to start doin?

‘fuckdoken!’ iono… add a lil more spice to their games


#13

PLAYTIME’S OVER!

CRY, SCREAM AND DIE! HAHA!

Lesson here: Never dub a KOF game. Ever.


#14

You should be asking “how can we improve the voice acting in Virtua Fighter”.

14 years of Virtua Fighter and every itteration has had horrible voice acting. It’s a running joke really. Other fighters tend to have decent voice work (Tekken, Capcom stuff).

3S has great voicework… one of the best… contrarily, 2I has quite possibly the worst voicework ever…


#16

I love the voice acting in VF5. I wouldn’t ever change it.

HOT DOG!

START RUNNING… NOOOOOOOOOOOW!

BEHOLD MY PHYSIQUE!

WELCOME… TO THE BRAD SHOW!

… GG’s voice acting is fine. The answer is “don’t have english voice acting”

3s has awesome voice acting. Land a Shoryureppa on Ryu and hear what I mean. I also liked Soul Calibur 3’s Japanese voices a lot,especially Siegfried. KOF of course is also great. Even the Engrish of Terry and co. works perfectly! I shouldn’t go too far with KOF 'cause the examples are endless!


#19

about 3S ummmm
GET READY …TO DIE!

dood bad engrish rules !

YOU CANNOT EX CAPE WRONG DEATH

Who said anything about dubs? Just give white characters good US voice actors and let the Jap characters speak their own shit. Unless they exchange dialogue like in Tekken 4.
