I'd easily say that our actors are 10x as talented as any one of theirs handily.
I also love how they can't pronounce English for shit, but we can pronounce Japanese terms just fine now.

Don't get high on your own supply LOL. I know a few english people and I'm happy inform you that their english is just fine. Do you have any idea how hard it is to pronounce japanese properly??? (ESL teacher here btw).

LOL, better than a whole page of moaning about how nobody's online.

On the whole Osaka thing, I dunno any better, to me it's how KoF is. I watch tons of anime, some random shows and of course, the KoF streams. The voice acting is clean, clear; it gels with the rest of the series and, while kensou  and robert do have a couple of lines which leave me scratching my head, Kyo and King sound quite neutral to me. If you can tell me what I should be listening for, pray tell.

Of course, there's also the matter of whether or not to translate something and how to translate it. How does one translate Ash's soft Ko line "sonna..."? Lit: something like that. Implied: negative, disapproving, disbelief. If you translate it, you're gonna end up with that old gag of 2 syllables being translated into 2 sentences. If you don't fans will be "disappoint" because they feel ripped off.

I reckon something like this might be better taken care of by community otakus than SNK because the pros they can afford aren't capable of delivering to the necessary level. They always sound half asleep to me.
But I can appreciate your passion ;)

I'll give it a closer listen next time I play. I can kinda remember Robert and Kensou being accent heavy, but that's about it. And I think Robert's is acted (he's supposed to be Italian). As for zo/ze... Well, they're exclamation marks, but indicative of social status/interpersonal standing; you'd never use them talking to your superiors, for instance. And except for Yuri, I'm pretty sure they're exclusive to the male characters. Using anything else would sound super weird to the japanese, as one is seldom polite towards the target of a merciless pounding.

BTW: WTF? you don't understand japanese but you pick up on accents and the location of the actors???

Lol, did you really enjoy the wasei eigo on the first clip that much?
TBH, I don't think there's any dialect in kof xiii. If there were, I wouldn't be able to understand any if it. Several characters have anachronisms (Shen's foreign accent, Betty's formal speech, Terry/Clark and their engrish etc etc).
When you mention kansai, do you mean stuff like shortening words/verbs and the constant use of "ze!" or "zo!" at the end of sentences?
IF ANYTHING, it'd be a cool challenge to see how many quotes we can get translated and uploaded to the wikis. I wouldn't mind doing a couple myself.

You know, learning japanese tanoshii dazo! But really, those who played kof98 for hours on end have gotten used to (and maybe have come to love) the ear grating sounds. Kof xiii has left us spoiled.

I would say it's got more to do with how they eq voices, with most of the lower range left out (it sounds better through arcade speakers which are smaller and tend to mud-up with bass heavy sounds). When it comes to home systems, you can mix it however you like, but on arcades, you have to limit yourself to what sounds clear on a 2 6" speaker system. I prefer japanese voice acting because it's always stronger/more emotional than lower budget dubs. Remeber Kyo's "eat this"? Yeah...

Funny, i hear accents, but no dialect. Could you tell me more about this?

I'm glad XIII is all Japanese voices.


Double quote for the truth. Never played a game with good english voices PERIOD. The same applies to dubs vs subs. Subs every time.

LOL, i'm a Luddite when it comes to modern tech. I actually have more hours on a kof98 cab than on my Xbox. took me a while to find it but my tv has a "PC" mode which bypasses all the bullcrap, and weird enough, it makes the game look better (except for zoom ins on characters. what were they thinking???). On the other hand, i need every excuse I can get to justify dropping easy combos ;] Gonna get a stick as well. i find myself using the stick on the xbox controller with the thumb and the buttons with my fingers. weird as hell.

But you're right, you can't imagine how pissed off i was when i first got the new gear and couldn't even go from j.C to c.B; "whoa, i really let myself go. what a scrub!"

Well, I'm no pro but even the lag on wireless xbox controllers pisses me off. And don't get me started on the TV's post-processing.

It seems to be the ONLY way to actually combo into it...

lol @ hugo's guard points. I think they should only give out the t-shirts after ppl play the first elimination, that way they have to stick around a bit longer. TBH, 10 bucks is close to nothing when it comes to inscription money. I think that's a stronger reason to sign up than the T-shirt. It's awesome to see KOF take off like this, esp after what happened with xii. this is prolly the best thing that could have happened. finally, all eyes will be on KoF. Don't really care who wins, as long as we get some heart stopping matches. And BALA in josou = no. Because no.

Here's a little food for thought: her qcb+HP drive cancels into her EX qcb+PP. Pretty obvious but seldom used.

The obese terminator?

We need Shion, can't have card games without Trap Cards.

That's just the problem innit? If you put a trap in there, their victims get all butt hurt (haha ;)). You give them 5 o'clock shade and the traps will get their pitch forks out and lynch you! =D

And my last jab at that blog, something that popped up when I was walking home today:
Obviously in contemporary society male and female representation and objectification are hugely unequal, but it would have been easier for me to swallow if, say, Ash Crimson or Benimaru were given similar levels of fanservice.
Did you see what I did there? XD
Why those 2? Why not any other 2 guys from the cast (apart from the fact that a couple of them are barely dressed to begin with)?
