    I really like Tails' new voice. As for Sonic's... it will take some time, but I am pretty sure I will get used to it. It's a great improvement, just a very big change in style!

    I knew Kate Higgins would do an excellent job as Tails, and she hasn't disappointed me.

    Roger Craig Smith's Sonic is... different, but I actually prefer it. He always sounded too young to me before, and I think the deeper voice suits him better.

    First time I hear Sonic's new voice, I was like "!" and immediately stopped the video.
    Then I started it over, and I totally love Sonic's new voice and I hope it sticks around for a long time.

    Tails' voice is definitely cool too, but my favorite part of the scene was the moonwalk. That moonwalk is too good.

    While I was expecting a voice closer to Zagi from Tales of Vesperia, I'm actually pretty okay with Roger's performance. Kate also did a great job. Humor is cartoon level, which is fine.

    Looking good.

    Uh, anyone find it odd that Tails says he has to read the translator and then says "I just hear save them over and over"? Oh dear. :(

    Bravo Sega, you've successfully written a good cutscene.

    Voices aren't bad either.
     
  9. I just love Kate Higgin's voice work as Tails. The voice fits Tails much better than any of the previous actors did. Roger Craig Smith as Sonic is also better than Griffith, but it'll take a bit to get used to.

    Sonic got through puberty!
    The voice acting is definitely better, but like others already said, Sonic's voice will take some getting used to.

    Internet.
    Sonic having voice acting is suddenly about 5x more acceptable than it's been since 1999 IMO. I love how well the lines were delivered, and I don't mind the totally new tone of voice, either.

    ...and? It's not uncommon for people to say they heard someone say something when they really read it. It's just an odd vernacular hitch these days in society.
     
  14. Sonic sounds like a white guy. I'm thinking about this because of how Jaleel White said in the interview for the SatAM boxset that he didn't want Sonic to sound as though he was black, white, or anything (something which I think he succeeded at)

    You're only noticing that with this voice rather than at Ryan or Jason? -shot-

    I love the new voice, but I understand people will need time to adjust. It took 2 hours but now I've adjusted I like it.

    On my butt in front of the computer. Where else?
    I'm working on working up the willpower to work on learning how to make my own Sonic fangames. Not quite there yet.
    I'm still at that point where I haven't gotten used to Roger's performance and prefer Unleashed-Griffith as Sonic, but objectively speaking, Roger is making a much stronger entrance than did Griffith when he first started voicing Sonic.

    Kate Higgins as Tails is an obvious improvement on all fronts.

    The moonwalk was unexpectedly funny.

    The fourth-wall breakage moment is a bit lame.

    ^ I can vouch for this, as I do it all the time.

    I wasn't being jerk, I just chalked it up to a translation error. I didn't know people did that.

    Also, yay high scores galore. I'm still awaiting a review that gives it a 7. Someone, somewhere. Doesn't mean I'm hoping for it, but there's probably going to be one.
     
  19. Sega was right about the Saturday Morning cartoon vibe. One thing that strikes me about Sonic's new voice is that there was one episode of SatAM where Jaleel White had a deeper voice.

    skip to 2:25 and listen to Sonic's and Rotor's conversation.

    I know Sonic is a teenager, but it is somewhat refreshing to hear a mature voice for once. Ill give it time. Tails is perfect by the way.

    The Doctor with two awesome robot sidekicks, Sonic breaking the fourth wall, and Tails sounds like a kid.

    This is like a AOSTH episode that doesn't look bad.
