Yosuke vs Teddie

Aigis vs Yukiko

Yosuke vs Labrys

Yosuke vs Aigis

My only major complaint so far is that they talk to much. It gets a bit annoying. I may end up using the Japanese voices, not because I dislike the English voices, but because its less irritating when I can't understand them. Any one less feel this way? I do want to say that I love the announcer's voice. Its great.

Waaaay too much talking. I'd say if they cut the amount of actual announcing attacks in half then it would be bear-able. *snrk*

Dear lord, you're right. They can't even get off a line because they're interrupting themselves.

#4 Posted by InfiniteGeass (2051 posts) -

I think the talking is fine.

#5 Edited by Irvandus (2823 posts) -

I want to see some Akihiko footage.

Edit: Not as good as the Giant Bomb fighting game.

@Irvandus:

Here's some off screen footage. Unfortunately its hard to hear with E3 going on in the background.

Can't believe that this voice stuff is such a problem with you guys. Shows how determined you are or how weird you can be with little things like this. They're fine, I just care about more important things than the voices during fights. Usually game fight dialogue is bad anyway,

#8 Posted by Chontamenti (153 posts) -

I'll maybe turn the volume down *_*

#9 Posted by AndrewB (7491 posts) -

Man, Mitsuru is a real badass.

#10 Posted by JeanLuc (3572 posts) -

@Phatmac: I have no problem with what they're saying I'm just worried its going to be too distracting.

The constant talking is pretty much the same as Blazblue. It's annoying at first, but honestly you usually don't even notice in the heat of battle.

Now training mode on the other hand, turn that shit off or you'll go insane.

#12 Posted by falconpunch (177 posts) -

hmmm... maybe a little less Rise

#13 Posted by Apathylad (3066 posts) -

It's a little weird to have Rise cheer for both sides, but the amount of talking doesn't bother me.

Rise I know you can turn off.

They are talking all the time. Sounds like an Arc game.

#16 Posted by AngelN7 (2970 posts) -

That's common for Ark system games , after a while you won't notice it at least I don't mind it because I care and know about characters in this game, cannot say the same about Blazblue where they were just talking nonsense.

#17 Posted by SpunkyHePanda (1590 posts) -

Is "Captain Ressentiment" a reference to that one class question? That's ridiculous.

#18 Posted by Video_Game_King (35995 posts) -

Well, at least Teddie kinda sounds like Dave Wittenberg.

They're not talking nonsense if you know the story. P4A would be just as nonsensical without context.
#20 Posted by WarlockEngineerMoreDakka (432 posts) -

Seems pretty similar to BlazBlue- though if anything it has slightly more chatter due to Rise's commentary. (Especially when she works for both sides. :P )

Not a huge deal really- especially since the voices themselves don't seem to be terrible. So it could've been a lot worse than this. :P

#21 Posted by JeanLuc (3572 posts) -

Added more footage to OP. Yosuke vs Labrys and Yosuke vs Aigis.

Still playing the story I didn't get much sense for most of the stuff they were talking about , in this case I had a whole game to understand Personas and Robot girls not that it should matter how you get that context the Gulty Gear characters where just like that but I didn't mind then.

yeah sounds better than I had originally thought. Not as good, but who is really

#24 Edited by Yadilie (380 posts) -

It's like you guys have never played or seen BlazBlue. Every single character in BlazBlue has lines for specific characters. Every move has voice string attached to it for both characters. This is nothing new from Arc System Works.

Man Aigis's english voice fucking sucks

That's because I haven't ever played an Arc System Works game before.

Pretty sure that is a conscious decision. Its been 2 years since P3 and Aigis has been getting more and more human. She had the robotic voice thing going on in P3 and P3P.

Did you play Persona 3? She tried too hard to sound robotic! Also she sound less robotic due to her becoming more human like. Also the Japanese voice never sounded robotic.

Wow, just watched. Crosstalk is annoying no matter the context.

@JeanLuc: The Japanese voice sounded robotic it the way she talked.

@mutha3: I forgot about that

I thought her voice was fine. I just... didn't want a robot in that game to begin with.

#36 Posted by Aleryn (703 posts) -

I can see it both ways, I think they should just provide a toggle or slider for the in-fight quotes linked to attacks.

Yep, I think you might be right. Combine with the fact that they couldn't get all of the original cast, I kinda want to play this game in Japanese.

She does? Because I've heard she just talks in an archaic/formal way, but pretty much sounds like a normal Japanese girl otherwise.

Voice clips of her don't sound robotic to my western ears, at least.

This really. Ark always does it.

#40 Edited by Bocam (3670 posts) -

@mutha3: It's hard to explain but basically the way Aigis ends her sentences in Japanese is a common way robots talk in anime/eroge/manga.

sorry you don't have the right OS for this

#47 Posted by metalsnakezero (2288 posts) -

You guys are scarying me -_-

I don't hear anything bad with the voices. For Aegis, she has more emotion to her now so it could be that we're not use her new speaking pattern.

Don't bother, guys. Aigis' motherboard only supports my special processing unit, anyway. 12 pins, fat cooler - no need to ever overclock that piece of hard ware.

Yeah well your DVD-RW only goes up to 4x speed, so how could you satisfy anyone?
