This was worth its own thread, I felt.
 

Linkified 1

Impressions:
Vincent: Troy Baker is the fucking man. He sounds great as Vincent. Did a way better job than I expected, and I expected a lot, 'cause I like that dude.
Catherine: She's okay for the character I guess....I think I prefer her JP  voice, but her enligsh one is okay as well.
Katherine: Is great as well. Her JP VA was tough competition, but I think Ruff is up to par.


...I'm also impressed that Vinny said "fuck". Dropping f-bombs are we?  Good job Atlus.

Not surprised by the quality voice work. Atlus USA seriously has one of the best localisation teams around.

" The lip syncing is bugging me....god is it bugging me.If that's how it's going to stay I don't think I'll be playing it in english if I get it. Too much emphasis on the cutscenes and drama to get bugged over lip syncing. "

The game is still two months away, and they said they're going to lip-synch it into english, so I'm sure it will be fine eventually.

Its very noticable for now, yeah. Oh, and..

Orlando: O'liam still sounds constipated.

Troy Baker is the man. Let's not forget he did this as well, the best part about Soul Eater. So funny.

Haha, yeah that's why I deleted my post.

The voices do sound really good though. They did a good job. As Atlus always does.
#7 Posted by AyKay_47 (293 posts) -

Very impressive.


I'm excited.

Man this year just keeps getting better.

#9 Posted by SlightConfuse (3963 posts) -

Maybe because i have been watching some episodes buy vincent sounds like Greed from fullmetal alchmist brother hood, i think it fits nicely.


Catherine sounds a liitle to much like Rise

seems like a good cast so far

Already pre ordered special edition wish it came with vincents jacket :(

#12 Posted by asian_pride (1654 posts) -

Yeah, Atlus has definitely got one of the best localization teams out there. The VA's sound just right, and the script is well-done too. Can't wait :)

#13 Posted by Jolt92 (1542 posts) -

Wasn't that Chie in the second clip? The one talking about the dream.

Anyway, looks great. Hopefully we'll get this in Europe and hopefully the gameplay will be fun, but I can't say I'm that convinced it will be.

And here is a guided preview of the game:

Neato! It always frightens me how Aram looks like a separated twin brother to me.

EDIT: Only two minutes in, and christ is that Yuri Lowenthall?!:(

WOMAN'S WRESTLING

American version gets a "very easy" difficulty

"owned" aram i am dissapoint

Not digging Catherine's voice.

#19 Edited by Vexxan (4615 posts) -

Wow, this is some really good stuff. I was afraid the english voices wouldn't turn out good but this is just great.

#20 Posted by Chop (1994 posts) -

Troy Baker fit right away, just perfect. 


I don't know about Baily for Catherine though. She sounds too shy; I wanted a more forceful and seductive souding Catherine. 
#21 Posted by zyn (2591 posts) -

Yeah... I'm going to play the game with Japanese audio.

There probably(coughdefinitelycough) won't be an option if you intend to do that with the english version of the game. Its been(or going to be)  lipsynched.

Damn, that is really great.

Nice, I like it thus far.

#26 Posted by Yummylee (21242 posts) -

Was waiting for so long for him to tell Catherine to GET BENT OVER.

#27 Posted by BulletproofMonk (2718 posts) -

I'm so tired of hearing Liam O'Brien's voice after playing New Vegas.

#28 Posted by Devoid (429 posts) -

Liam O'Brian's in this? Awesome. I dig the hell out of his voice.
These ENG scenes have got me more than excited now.

I can never shake the image in my head that he's recording this from a toilet booth after eating a month old burrito or something.....

Eh. I dig the english VA, and being able to actually understand what they are saying means a lot.
#30 Posted by Contro (2040 posts) -

Looks well done/

#31 Posted by eroticfishcake (7782 posts) -

For a game like this I generally would prefer the original Japanese VA but since it's Atlus we're talking about I'll let them get away with it 'cause damn Troy Baker is really nailing it. Also, Liam O'Brien or as I like to call, Akihiko. Not so sure about Bailey for Katherine but it's still passable.

#32 Posted by Cloudenvy (5891 posts) -

Awesome voiceacting as expected.

I like to call him Ieyasu, 'cause after that was when I started to notice his voice all over the place.

#35 Posted by Catarrhal (820 posts) -

I know it was already mentioned above, but in case anyone had any lingering doubts, I'd like to reiterate there will unfortunately not be a Japanese language option for this game. According to the moderators (i.e. Atlus USA staff) on the their forum, it's largely due to a question of royalties. Apparently, Atlus USA had no input into this decision. It's too bad, really, because Yamadera-san is practically a legend.

#36 Posted by AlisterCat (5480 posts) -

I can hear the Kanji.

Even if it's lipsynched, it looks kinda off. I don't know if it's the art style or what but it just doesn't look like it's for English.

Like I said, this game isn't out for another 3 months and this footage is probably older than that.

And it doesn't look "off". It looks terribad. But again, lip-synch probably hasn't been implemented yet. Art style has nothing to with that.

A little bit, yeah.
#40 Edited by FluxWaveZ (19307 posts) -

I like everyone's VO except for Katherine's. Maybe I'll get used to it eventually, but her voice seems too young to me, like others have said, or something.

#41 Posted by Catolf (2653 posts) -

So I was right about Toby being Yuri? Awesome, I couldn't hear Jonathan cause Aram was talking but it sounded like a familiar voice.

#42 Posted by crusader8463 (14413 posts) -
That's creepy to me, because I hear Kanji and Risa talking, but I'm seeing different characters! My mind can't comprehend it!

Instead of saying it directly, I'll just post something they've done.



Still, though, although it takes a bit to shake off memories of the Japanese cutscenes, once you do, this is high quality work.

What does posting a game more than a decade old prove?

@FluxWaveZ:

That I'm not as obvious as you'd think. Also, I'm not gonna dig through tons of YouTube videos just for that one message.
#46 Posted by Daveyo520 (6651 posts) -

Now that I know what is going on in the cut scenes I think I have figured out plot elements they don't hide well. 

#47 Posted by I_smell (3925 posts) -

Wow this game is VERY anime.

#49 Posted by Underachiever007 (2468 posts) -
@Video_Game_King: That's a fairly old game. Most of their recent output has been pretty high quality.

Don't make me say it. We all know where this is going.
