Re: The Official BBS VA Discussion Thread

Okay so if Hamil isn't voicing Eraqus who would be a good VA for Eraqus? And same question if Hamil isn't voicing Terra, who would be a good VA for Terra.

Personaly I think for Terra it needs to be a young voice, about 20ish, and it needs to have a deep tone to it, but not as deep as XH or Xemnas.

Actually, since there is a actor form star wars in this cast already, Liam Neeson for Eraqus is possible.

Re: The Official BBS VA Discussion Thread

I'm just glad that they picked up some good voices for the roles and not some damn disney kids with no talent

Mark's got enough years under his belt to be good as Terra or Eraqus and Willa Holland has a voice that can fit the stronger yet still feminine sound of Aqua

After first hearing the line that Nimoy said in te trailer i was thinking that it was off and strange for such a deep sounding voice, but after imagining him speaking more roles and trusting his years of acting he starts to seem more and more of a fit.

I even imagined him voicing right off the bat today as i was reading english screens, it was awesome and exciting that it seemed so....right.

Good is most definitly a relative term.....to be honest I'm quite disappointed with these names. Especially Mark Hamill, I hate his voice and it won't fit Terra, or even Eraqus in my honest opinion. But to be fair, it'd be best to say my final judgement for when we start to get some trailers/preview scenes.

Re: The Official BBS VA Discussion Thread

Is the ability to do an awesome angry scream really the most important thing for a character like Terra, though?

I'd think that Terra's vulnerability would be far more important, since the pain that Terra's darkness causes him is a huge portion of his character.

And Luke Skywalker's not the best example of that (for which we should be glad, considering George Lucas' apparent definition of "vulnerability" is Slave Leia).

Did I ever say that an epic angry scream was the most important element of Terra? No, I did not.

I disagree; it's not Terra's vulnerability, rather it's his temptation. They're similar, admittedly, but really temptation is a little bit more in a negative manner. Because, honestly, there's more than one way to define either term and temptation is the more negative term, and is more along the lines of what goes on with Terra.

And either way, Luke was often quite spoken in RoTJ, particularly in the scenes involving Luke trying to cope with the fact that Vader is indeed his father. So really, if Terra's defining quality is his vulnerability, Mark can definitely handle that. And the scene I mentioned with the scream in RoTJ also showed Luke being incredibly tempted to destroy his own father.


Mark can definitely handle Terra. ^_^

You don't know Leonard Nimoy's voice then.

Dude, you realize you just dissed Leonard Nimoy, right?

Besides, MX's voice is actually good... it's just different from the Japanese actor. In fact most people hate English voice actors the moment they hear them because they're so used to the Japanese voices but in all reality the english voices are good.

And MX sounds NOTHING like Yoda -_-

I'd suggest listening to it about 4 or 5 times. Most people change their mind once they get used to the voice.

I actually think Nimoy is better at certain things.
1: He sounds more like an old man which is a MAJOR reason for one of Xehanort's goals.
2: It sounds like he can actually convince Terra he's a good guy. In the Japanese version, it made Terra look like an idiot because Xehanort always sounded evil. In the English version, it's more believable to see Xehanort as a helpless old man until you meet him towards the end as he reveals his true evil intentions.

I still don't see how you hear Yoda in his voice :/

Besides, this is ONE line. And remember that for most of the game, he goes through an act (mainly to Terra) trying to pretend he's a good guy. So for all we know once he says "LET YOUR HEART BE STAINED IN DARKNESS!!" he may sound really evil.

Still, opinions are opinions, I guess. :/

Re: The Official BBS VA Discussion Thread

There is something i noticed about Nimoy's line though, it seems as though it was just hastily cut because its part of a longer speech the one line seems out of place. Also i do think that he can sound more powerful its just that he's not very agrivated in that scene either.

Not to mention that he needed to say that line about 4 times so there's a chance this cut may not even make it to the final game. This happens a lot in animated movies and games.
