It'll probably be better in the full game, IMO. I remember hearing positive things about the voice work from people that played the demo at E3.
It's all in direction. who ever did the voice direction in KH3 and Dissidia NT is awful. just compare Ray Chase's Noctis to DissidiaFor me, FFXII nd FFXV has the best English voice direction. Funny that the games Nomura and Kitase had bigger roles in (mainly Kitase, as I don't want to blame Nomura more) are the ones that sound the most wannabe-anime to me(FFX, FFXIII, FFVIIR). And I mean English dub studio anime. I wonder of Kitase has say in VO direction, and if that's the reason why those three games (and the sequels/spinoffs) have such anime-y VOs.
FFXII was fine and didn't come off too anime-y. Sounded more theatric (as others noted), and FFXV felt more serious and mellow in tempo compared to most anime VOs. And many of the VOs from those two games ARE anime VOs, but with the right direction, you can take away the generic anime-feel and get something, dare I say, BETTER. I think FF should strive for that "better" quality. Again, I'm not blaming the voice actors, but the overall direction.
People seemed pretty positive about the VA from the E3 demo. I'm assuming this is just a poorly put together trailer.
It just one small scene, specifically for Japanese version of the trailer. They didn't complain in all the other scenes.
The CG in Final Fantasy VIII still impresses me to this day.
Yeah, everyone keeps looking better with every new trailer.
I've thought about that a lot. I mean, I'm living through quite a lot of daydreams right now. We've all been waiting for this for so long. The PS3 tech demo was 14 years ago and some of us were thinking about this before even then.
Mine as well, especially next gen, and if there's a PC version. I've waited this long, I'm in no rush at all. It would just be nice to have, even if I don't like the gameplay. Please let there be mods on top of that for PC.
Leaked footage? Is there anywhere to watch it?Barret's VA said something about him recording for TGS (then he deleted it), so I wouldn't be shocked if some (if not all) of this trailer had its dialogue not taken from the actual game. Although the game's seven months away, so I don't know.
Anyways, in the leaked demo footage you only control Cloud outside of battles (it automatically changes control to him). I don't know if that was for demo purposes or for the beginning of the game, but I doubt we'll get to play as any other than Cloud beyond some measured instances. The Tifa part seems to be part of an individual task in a mission or something (the place looks too slick and modern to be the second reactor, so maybe it's the Shinra HQ or a new place).
Tifa being in the gym is probably from when you get back to Wall Market with Barret and her to climb the plate.
I'm not saying I'm talking for everybody regarding the taste of anime-y VA. Those of us that don't like that kinda of VA could very well be in the minority and a lot of people don't mind that kind of voice work. There are a lot of anime dubs I can't watch because of stereotypical anime-y VA direction, but that doesn't meant those anime (especially the dubs) aren't well liked by lots of anime fans. It's just taste.
