    Ryan Drummond was fired. Whoever played Tails was gone in Heroes. Knuckles's voice actor is gone. Deem Bristow is dead. Etc etc etc. All of them were replaced by their respective Sonic X counterparts for Shadow/Riders/etc. That's right, Jason Griffith will be playing Sonic. Oh dear God.

    I don't know about you, but I think this is just retarded.

    The Sonic X actors all have horrible Bugs Bunny accents.

    As I explained in the chatroom, my theory is that SEGA fired the old cast because the newer fans(the targeted age group) does not recognize them. My guess is that they are all acustomed to the voice actors used for Sonic X. So rather than confuse the kids they fired the old cast and brought in, what is to them, familiar voices. I also see this as a cost productive measure, its alot cheaper to have 1 cast rather than 2. But as I said, atleast they aren't using Sonic X's writers, otherwise I would give up all faith on the series, those writers have come up with some of the worst cartoon phrases ever concieved, some lines make barney look mature. Also they haven't hired the SU cast, which could lead to disasterous results as well :P

    Sonic 1 Rehash - I'm not saying its canned, I'm planning on some work on it this summer.
    I might get flamed for this but I actualy like most of the SonicX character voices, the only ones I don't really like were Gamma and Rouge. I don't think its right they fired him without telling him though. Well everyone that wanted the offical game voices to be SonicX voices they got that in a way except now the SonicX voices are now the offical game voices. In my opinon Tails will sound better, Cream won't seem too diffrent, and Amy will be bearable aswell.

    The Japanese Sonic X voices are better, period. PERIOD. As for the game actors... fuck that. They did much better than any of the Sonic X actors.

    EDIT: Clarity.
    DEDIT: More input.

    I sentence you to a 24hr marathon of Sonic X with the English voice actors.

    Holy fucking shit. Ryan Drummond fit PERFECTLY. This is wonderful, Sega screws up A-FUCKING-GAIN. Once again, I stress the fact I have no respect for them, their games, or anything.

    Is SEGA gonna use the Jap voice actors on ALL versions of the games? The US voice actors suck.

    Now, I can't blame you for having a hatred for Sega/4Kids and all, but still, that post isn't top-quality. Just keep it in mind.

    This may actually be a good idea.

    Think about it. There has been a lot of work on Sonic X. The VAs for Sonic X now have more experience being those characters than the game VAs.

    Also, aren't you the guys who complained to no end about how much you hated the voice acting in the games?

    Edit:......"Rockman dasher"'' you are annoying.

    The only voice actor I hated was Tails. Everyone else was great. It was Heroes's dialouge that sucked ass.

    The intro videos for each team was about 1 min long, after that each video that followed was 15 secs, tack on in game dialouge and you've got yourself hell in a game.
