What do you have against "raspy, edgy and stoic deep" voices?

Nothing. I hate how Japan thinks all black people sound like that. As much as I hate Kotaku and their left wing pandering, they were on point this time and concluded as much as well.

I think it's more a case of Barrett being a bulkier character hence he has a rougher voice. And is Japan really in charge of hiring the English voice actors?

That's an excellent question. I'd imagine that they outsource it to a casting agency, and Square Enix looks at the final product when it's completed. I don't "think" SE does motion capture with their voice acting like Naughty Dog and other studios, they just wipe the Japanese dialogue that was already recorded and the localization department who's in charge of English dialogue does the rest.

That'd be a good thing to Google.

If it is done by a separate studio that's located in the states, then Barrets stereotypical voice is even more shameful. That's just me though, I realize everyone isn't unhappy with his voice.

Regardless, SE's HQ in Japan undoubtedly looks and officially approves of the final results of the English localization.

If Square Enix aren't the ones responsible for the final product of the English voice over, then I'll be at a loss for words...

I'm just glad Japanese don't give a shit about complaining like this. Barret sounds fine. Would it be better if he had a softer voice, but spoke in ebonics?

Well of course he doesn't sound "bad". But when I hear him talk, it just sounds off. Barret is a big dude, but he's not a cave troll or anything. Michael J White is about as tall as Barret and his voice isn't anywhere NEAR that deep and raspy.

But you're right, Japan doesn't need to bend over backwards to get Barrets voice to please everyone.



Oh ffs, Barret is modelled after Mr. T. Lol it's fine, nothing is wrong with it.

This is the complaint for the trailer? Barrett's voice? Sad times. There will be DLC/pre-order stuff and microtransaction, 3 games where there should be one and the wrong gameplay but sure "Barrett doesn't speak right."

Something to lighten the mood, I didn't realise Jessie was a girl until like my 3rd playthrough.



Hmm, pie.

It might be worse... apparently on ResetEra (surprise!) some people are complaining he isn´t 'black enough'.

As in skin color? Or do they actually want him to talk Ebonics?

Skin color. Someone even claimed he looks like a germanic tanned dude (WTF?).



 

 

 

 

 

His voice is fine.

Not black enough? Lol... All inclusive reset era at their finest.
