@Detrian: I agree but there seems to be a concept blind spot between Voice Acting and Text Bubbles. There a concept similar called Speech Synthesis,but that deals with human like voices reproduced through digital means such as Sinistars "Run Coward!" The concept could be submitted as is but I thought that the giant bomb community, who is so fond of portmanteaus could help create a catchy title.
Ryan Davis and the Giant Bomb crew mentioned this phenomenon on last weeks bombcast I believe. We've all played games that have sound effects instead of voice acting that accompany the jotting of words and punctuation in games. This is usually seen in older games such as Star Fox and Animal Crossing but it is still prevalent in new games such as Yakuza 3 and 3D Dot Game Heroes, It also often reflects the characters personality e.g. small girl has cute chirpy sound where as a large dullard might have a low monotone for him. So I put the question to the moderators and the community, is this a worthy concept at Giant Bomb and more importantly what to call it?
@WinterSnowblind:@Cube: You both make good points I agree with. On one point by buying a censored product we are consenting to Sega for future alterations but in another point by not buying the game we are jeopardizing the possibility of seeing any more of the franchise outside of Japan. That being said I still plan on buying it the day it comes out.
