Arc Rise Fantasia Trailer/Gameplay

Its the funniest thing. The game looks pretty damn great but the VA job is so bad its enough to make me not want to buy it, and Ive been hyping it for a year or so.

Thoughs?

Meh, bad voice acting doesn't bother me anymore. I've grown immune to it honestly.

Men of War, ArmA 2, Just Cause, STALKER Clear Sky and Call of Pripyat.

Not even scratching the surface.

I do think Men of War takes the cake as far as so bad its goodgoes

So quoteable.

STALKER Clear Sky and Call of Pripyat.skrat_01
With CoP especially, it's bad voice acting and even worse dialogue, that sometimes tarnishes the immersion. I'm telling you, they should just speak the native tongue with subtitles.

Word. They finally get a more polished stalker out there, and then they screw it up another way :P It's like they go out of their way to say "hey guys what can we do with our game that will either irritate gamers or at the least make them cringe? Come on now, dig deep"

I said come in, don't stand there!

Honestly I don't think anything is as bad as the guy behind the bar at the Freedom base in Clear Sky.

edit*

Actually why are they playing recruitment propaganda... in their own base?

Ehhhh.

Found a better video to capture the barman's redeeming personality.

most voice acting in video games is bad. Even more so for Japanese games that are imported and just don't have the budget to hire decent voice actors. Star ocean till the end of time still makes me cringe >.

I don't have time to watch the video, but it's going to have some tough competition from Just Cause 2 and the children from Heavy Rain. :P

He fell from the sky, took out his sword, rolled a bit, and slightly hurt his knee. Sweet jesus, the main character of this game has beaten gravity. He must be an all-powerful god.

Voice acting that bad usually makes me want to play the game even more.

What seems really poor in that game are the graphics.

People continue to complain about the american VO in SO4 (and even games like Baten Kaitos) and while Limle was beyond annoying, i never once felt the need to mute the audio... Did I laugh? Sure, but never have I wanted to ignore a game merely because the VO was terrible... The idea that you lose interest in a game because of its Voice acting is simply retarded. SO4s combat system is among the best in the genre and ignoring that simply because you dislike the voice acting is just plain stupid... Same goes for Baten Kaitos and likely this game.gamer620

What I don't get is why people seem to think the Japanese voice acting is any better.

My guess is because most people don't understand what they are saying so to them it doesn't matter.

I think the people that complain about Vanille's voice are people who don't watch/like anime. Just my theory. That being said, her voice didn't bother me, so much as her not being able to decide if she was going to have an accent or not through the first half of the game.
