With Benedict Cumberbatch voice as the ship captain? Day 1 buy fosho.

I was also liking the idea of British voice actors for X, but with the ship being from the US, that would be ridiculous and unrealistic. I just hope they don't dip into the typical-anime-voices pool. Don't get me wrong, I like most of those voice actors...but they are in EVERYTHING. One of the reasons I loved the British voice actors in the first one is because I'd never heard them before and it made me feel they were that character--not Vash the Stampede or Ledouche of the Rebellion, or that guy who got killed off early in that low-budget sci-fi channel zombie flick.

Meh, I'll just pretend the UK got destroyed at some point. Lots of immigration.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!

The main problem with American voice acting is that it's a job that most American consumers don't really care about. There's hardly a such thing as a voice acting "celebrity" in America. Nolan North is as close there is and 99% of you wouldn't recognize him if you saw him on the street. As a result, it's not really an industry that attracts a lot of passion or talent. Most developers, especially those who specialize in localizing JRPGs, scrape up the bare minimum required and hire some people to read some scripts.

I mean, Xenoblade Chronicles had half-assed voice acting and it still turned out better than any non-blockbuster game American dubbing.

So Anakin kneels before Monster Mash and pledges his loyalty to the graveyard smash.

I'm pretty sure Kid Icarus Uprising is the only Nintendo game where the NA voice actors were given any direction even.

I really hate when people don't put enough effort into voice acting. Like those Tales of games that actively take voice acting out of optional scenes because they couldn't pay the voice actors enough (because lord knows voice actors make a killing (roll eyes)). I mean I'll give some credit to Xenoblade where at least only the heart-to-heart stuff and some quest things didn't have the main characters actually speak. God forbid you see Ni No Kuni where half of the game is 10 seconds of voice acting in the middle of 5 minutes of dialogue.

That might be one of the reasons people have gotten more into Western games. Like the effort put into stuff like Mass Effect is super appreciated in this regard where every character has an actual voice instead of inconsistent bs (this is a big pet peeve of mine).

It's why I don't want voice acting in Zelda unless its top-notch and given to everyone.

I also would've liked british voice acting in the game. But hey, as long as they get good voice actors for the game, I don't care.
I have definitely heard good american voice actors before. Or maybe my standards just aren't that high.

I can see how some are saying this game looks like it took a step back graphically. I've only seen the Digital Presentation trailer and I thought it also looked more bland now. What they showed looked good but more generic then before. Still though this has me excited for a bunch more reasons then visuals anyways. Don't get me wrong it looks great but it has so much more going on for it.

I loved the first game but never finished it. The length and fact that I never seem to finish games lately got in the way. I thought the world in the looked absolutely amazing and on the Wii at that. The enemies also looked stunning. The story from where I got to was also very good. What took a back seat for me though was the combat system. Once you got to the topple mechanics it just seemed like you just continually did the same thing over and over and over. I hardly ever felt the need to use that new move I just learned because of this system. My only complaint from the first game but it does make up a big part of the whole game. I really hope the combat system is more balanced this go around as more and more rpgs now a day really make you think with certain enemies.

Anyways looking forward to this either way as I know the quality it will have!

Watch the Treehouse demo. Game looks amazing when you're actually out in the field.

Watching 40 minutes of probably an 80-100 hr. game(going by Xenoblade Chronicles), you will be ok and there will be plenty of new stuff for you to expereince.

Nope, in the case of the first game it was and is available to Nintendo fans. Bayonette however was not so that was a good move.

I don't think we'll be getting any bundle deal. At best you could probably hope for a reprint for those who missed out, but I doubt they'll do that either.

Well at least in America you can pretty much find it at any Gamestop now for under 50$ so here there is no need for it.

Wow, that's a great price for an amazing game which further adds to why I don't think they'll reprint it. I just meant that would have been the best I thought anyone could hope for if copies were unavailable everywhere. (I believe they've already reprinted it once already actually)

I hope you don't mean based on actual in-game emotional scenes. I mean, if Mother 3 didn't get me to cry, this probably isn't either. I'd actually love it to do so, but I doubt it.

though if you mean tears of joy at the absurd levels of awesome and content, I could buy that
