the one thing i despise about this game

#1 Posted by RedEyesBlueBunny (1011 posts) -

is that DAMN announcer. i just wanna PUNCH HIM IN THE FACE! or hadoken him in the face or somethin...i'd much rather stick to playing SFII HD remix than play this new game everyone loves so damn much because i just cannot stand the effing announcer guy in SFIV. i even tried turning him off, but the only way to do that is to turn off voices completely, and that takes away the one thing i love about this game in the process, as it turns off character voices as well, so i no longer get to hear Ryu's HADOOOOKEN and his HETCHITCHABATOOCHAKSJDFOSJFO and all those other sayings the characters make on command that make street fighter a classic franchise. so i'm sorry street fighter IV, you are just not the game for me

'FISTS WILL FLY AT THIS LOCATION!' is the only thing I liked about the entire game.

If you don't like the announcer in SF 4, you'll really hate the announcer in Capcom Vs. SNK 2. That guy is fucking bananas. He doesn't shut up ever, from the time you turn the game on, to when you've picked a level, and even during the loading of said level. The guy just keeps going, saying all kinds of nonsense all the while.

He's better then the one that's going to be in SSFIV to be honest.

#7 Posted by Napalm (9020 posts) -
@Scooper: I actually prefer the SSFIV announcer. He sounds so insane. I love it.
#8 Posted by Zero_ (1976 posts) -

I like the SFA3 announcer more":

GO FOR BROKE!!!

Hey, how else would I know that im proving the old axium? That this could be it? Without him I may as well be playing blind. 
 
On a serious note, man up.

How can you stop playing a game for a reason so trivial as the announcers voice? Thats like if you stopped playing Bioshock just because no one in that game is black.
 
Stupid reason / thread is stupid.

I am not playing a Street fighter game till they change the announcer to the one from The Price is Right

I love the announcer.  He is the shit.  I want to play as him in SSFIV.

#18 Posted by thegoldencat7 (1497 posts) -

Announcers cheesy but fine.  
 
But: 
"MY FIGHT MONEEEY!!!" 
Thats annoying.

Seconded. 
 
The new announcer just sounds silly.

I love the SF4 announcer, the super one sounds like a stupid robot. Hopefully he grows on me.

#21 Posted by Kumo (125 posts) -

The SSF4 announcer reminds me too much of the Killer Instinct one. I keep waiting to hear him say "ULTRAAA COMBOOOOO" or something.
#22 Posted by lordofultima (6255 posts) -

SSF4 announcer is even more sick than the SF4 one in my opinion. I think they just need to rip the announcer from Killer Instinct directly, just have the same sound clips and everything.

i think the best solution is to get john madden to do the voice-over for ssfiv

Al Michaels: "Sagat drops back, throws a high tiger shot deep down the middle... aand it's good! Touchdown! Sagat wins! Perfect!"

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!  Priceless.  That is what John Madden would say if he was the announcer.

What if SF4 had an intelligent (word's a stretch) announcer system like today's sports games?

Announcer doesn't bug me, BUT the main theme tune is really getting on my nerves.

I wouldn't call that intelligent at all, and play-by-play commentary in a fighting game is silly.

Madden (continued): I thought Sagat was done for, but then came the Tiger Punch--BOOM! Tough-actin'-Tinactin!

Because you just hear his voice, I imagine that what most of you don't realize is

 This is the announcer

I wish the government bond/grant dude would be the announcer, he was full of charisma.

I'm pretty certain this thread is going to be "ONE HELL OF A SHOW!"

#39 Edited by Ninjalaw (26 posts) -

I don't mind the announcer, especially when he yells "FIGHT!!" It could be worse though... They could have brought back the announcer from SSFII: The new challengers. Now THAT announcer was annoying to listen to.

One of my favorites, he also voiced guile, which explained Guile's sudden girly "SONIC BEUM!"

Oh yeah lol, I forgot about that. I remember thinking back then "What did they do to Guile?"
