So, just for kicks I looked up the voice actors for FFXII on IMDB.  I was mainly just trying to see if the guy who played Vaan is the same actor who did Tidus in FFX (they're not, but sound pretty close to me).  Found it interesting that some of the voice actors actually look pretty similar to their game counterparts. 

Fran:


Penelo:


Balthier:


Ashe (also played Karin Koenig in Shadow Hearts:  Covenant.   Probably my favorite female VG character):


Vaan:



Admit it, you wanted to know if the girl doing the Fran VO (one of the coolest accents I've ever heard) was - in fact - a hottie.   icon_wink

I want Karin Koenig.  Like, in a non-video game sort of way.

Though not nearly as appealing as Nicole Fantl (Fran), I found this one interesting too:

John Di Maggio    ....    Migelo, Gilgamesh

Migelo didn't even sound a bit like Bender.  That would've been cool.

Eww. Please don't use the word "Shot" when we're talking about Dep's VA obsessions. That could get messy.  disgust

Snap!  Oh Karin, you sweet, polygonal seed of my desire... one day we will be together.  Indeed, and we will multiply!  Carelessly!  And grow old together.  We'll be sitting on the porch, I'll be bringing you lemonade and you, sitting there... with your, uhh, sword... and 'ole Blanca will be sleeping at our feet.

What in the world am I saying?!

On the plus side, you got to experience your first digital fake orgasm (unless you count cyber too).

The voice over list for Gears of War had me laughing.  You play with Bender and Terry Tate: Office Linebacker.

I like the list of actors from Shadow Hearts : Covenant - Joey Capps, Amos Nandy (What, did Laurel Nhardy sound too made up? slywink), John Smallberries, and Ardwight Chamberlain.  Also, at IMBD, half the cast is listed under two completely different names - Bob Papenbrook is listed as John Smallberries, Kari Wahlgren is credited as Jennifer Jean, Michelle Ruff is credited as Georgette Rose, and several others.   saywhat

Terry Tate rules you! I actually really really liked the voice acting in Gears. Thought it was appropriate and overall very solid.

Yeah, I don't think the voice acting was the problem as much as the silly and fairly over the top writing. Also, can someone explain why Phoenix checked in to base every time you entered a new area, and you get is a one or two line response. I think one exchange went, Phoenix to base -- We're entering a house -- Roger that Phoenix -- Are Baird and the Blackguy okay -- They're getting attacked -- Okay we're moving as fast as we can -- Over. That was it, the entire exchange. It was a like a 12 year old wrote it based off the phone conversations they have with friends.
