I like the duel voices idea.

Still, I wonder if the person who did NiGHTS' voice in the old game is still alive.
You know, like when he says 'aptiva!'. :lol:

Yes, of course. I hope they can get the old voice actor. He's probably looking for a job because his VA career wasn't leading anywhere. >.>
Man, this game needs more sequels.

Umm... no.

Her voice sounds way too feminine for NiGHTS. It also has a slight rasp, which NiGHTS should be completely without.

Next!

I bet a good dual vioce could be made with two of the singers from EBA. Totally.
They make "La La" and "you're the Inspiration" sound..... enjoyable. OMG

Is there something like a music/ voiced file that has her voice on it?
The computer I'm using (Mine died) is having problems with sound. Particularly the ones that are online and such.

Too feminine for NiGHTS? I don't know if you've realized this- NiGHTS is very feminine (?!). Have a look.

This is what NiGHTS looks like in JoD. Sleek body, sparkle coming out of the hands, pink vest, crystallized goo goo eyes coupled with eyelashes that could pierce through the outer threshold of a baseball and lift it. There could be no rasp in Regina's voice if she sang "Fidelity" gargling mouthwash with a strep throat.
(for the curious, Regina sings "Fidelity" inside this little link )

This isn't shoot down time, the critic's desk is no place for you <3.

Lets stop this before it goes any further. For the record, adding hearts to a snappy retort does not make it okay or less snappy. It just cheeses people off, so lets just try to keep in mind that yes, there will be different opinions floating around and there are no right or wrong ones.

"There must be some way out of here..."

Sorry, just had to type that. For some reason, the line popped into my head when I read that. (Well, if NiGHTS is a jester and Reala's a thief... *slaps himself* Get back to reality and out of parentheses, Curiosity.)

Okay. So Regina Spektor's too feminine and too raspy. Schwarzenegger is too masculine and too foreign. We're getting pretty far from the bullseye here, people.

Out of all the anime fans in this bunch, there has to be someone who can think of a voice actor worthy of NiGHTS. New suggestion: Shinji Ikari himself, Spike Spencer.

... I'm going to have a dream about that tonight...

On another note, now that I got to hear Regina Spektor's voice, I'm going to have to agree with Curiosity Inc., that her voice is a little too feminine for NiGHTS. I always pictured him with a voice that you couldn't tell if it was female or a high male. That and to get with the "is NiGHTS male or female?" thought. However she can be descent for another voice of some sort. Like if she can do her voice like cartoon voice actors do she can probably be a descent Helen.

Dual voices are interesting...i thought that dual voices would be good at first but then i thought that, when i'm playing the game, i'd yell at the game to shut up cause it would kinda annoy me.

Things that annoy me in a video game:

1. British accents (i'm British but i find it annoying hearing posh voices; it's a miracle i can survive FF12)
2. Really cutesy voices (they make me want to punch them)
3. When u hear the voices and they're giving to instructions to do things ("Okay, press A to jump!" "Damn! He's too strong! Wait...this skill should help us out!" My reaction: "I've read the controls!!" and "WHAT THE HELL DO U MEAN?? BE MORE SPECIFIC!!!")

I was thinking about that, actually. But they'd have to probably talk a bit differently. Probably tone it down a tad, you know? I think it would be annoying to hear NiGHTS talking like Mickey Mouse throughout the game. XD

*mental image of NiGHTS with mouse ears*... *FACEPALM*

I agree, if he started talking in a voice like that, I would cry... due to my disapointment and my ears bleeding heavily.

NiGHTS VOICE SHOULD BE DANE COOK'S. *shot* Im kidding. xD

I would squee with glee if it was Dane Cook, even if it would be a terrible, terrible mistake! Because I think its hilarious to imagine NiGHST talking like that. XD

But anyway, I do hope who they choose is good, in both english and japanese. I have my fingers crossed.

Hopefully, they wont get a high-pitched and squeaky Japanese girl to do NiGHTS. I would sit down and cry. :\ But, I guess we'll just have to wait for the game for final judgement.

I don't get it when people say "Why not the original actor". NiGHTS only made like two sounds the who game. That's nothing to judge an actor by. For all we know, Sonic Team may have just grabbed somebody on the development team and had them scream into the mic a few times. I wouldn't be surprised at all if all the character voices were just one guy whose voice was digitally modified to suit the characters.

I've been suggesting experienced, qualified English-language VAs through the whole Gorramn thread! None of them are good enough for you?! *sigh* Okay, let me see who else I can find.

*grumbles, goes to the depths of his memory and IMDB*

....

*surfaces* Ah, here's a good one.

Melissa Fahn. Notable roles, in no particular order: Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivrusky IV (aka "Ed") of Cowboy Bebop. Rika of Digimon Season 3. Apparently she voiced Kitty of Hello Kitty. Gaz of Invader Zim...

Ah, heck with it. If you've seen Cowboy Bebop, you know the voice of Ed would sound great coming out of NiGHTS' mouth with some more articulation.

ETA: I completely agree with Zero-Shift. I'd Quote him For Truth if I could right now.

What I mean is, Curiosity, is that I can't think of anybody to stick my two-cents in about. ^^; I still haven't gotten to listen to all the ones that everyone suggested. Some of the ones suggested by others are pretty good.

The last time I posted, I did so just to show I was alive. However, this time, I'm actually going to voice an opinion.

Okay, not all english voice actors are bad. A fair few of them can be, but you have to remember that voice actors are playing voices they are instructed too. If you think Amy's voice from the Sonic Adventure games was too whiney, it was because SoA told people or hired people to do it this way.

So the real question here is NOT who should act out his voice, but instead should be "how should NiGHTS sound?"

I can see NiGHTS working as the same kind of personality as Ed from Cowboy Bebop as previously suggested, however I feel that a voice of a similar tone would be terrible, personally speaking. (Funny definitely, but not suited.)

I personally hope, if its just a single voice, for something a bit mysterious, choice of male or female. I'd have to go with male, but, not one of the deep voices. I can't think of a good example of what I mean, but I'd say something close to Nathan Fillion (Mal Reynolds from Firefly) but with a more loose accent, to sound less serious, like Ryan Reynolds (One of the guys in Blade Trinity and Van Wilder from Van Wilder.)

Strange coincidence there, especially since they worked together in the show Two Guys and a Girl.

Its another wonderful exapmple of how we pick English voice actors. Another reason why I worry about NiGHTS voice.

I wish there was some way we could give Sega our input on voice actors. I mean...do they know that we hate most of the voice actors they pick for their games? I wonder....

:) I bet thats what they think. But it makes me wonder why they put the Japanesee voice options in their Sonic games. Do they know that a lot of us prefer the Japanesee voices due to the fact that the English ones suck? If so, why not make the English voices good so that way we don't need the Japanesee voices? I mean...don't they listen to the voices? They have to know that certain voices really suck. Why don't they do anything about it? I am so confused...

Confirmed news that NiGHTS's voice is feminine.. or like a kid..

"NiGHTS' VOICE: It's a girl! It's very much a girl/woman's voice. I was pretty shocked to hear that, but there you go: NiGHTS has a female voice and is portrayed much more as a female in the game."

Now I'm confident that there's not a lot of chance the voice can be fucked up.

And, NiGHTS will not be called gay anymore 8D!
