I absolutely prefer playing in a language I can understand, yes. But specifically Japanese acting (in video games and most anime) is some of the corniest, hammiest fucking bullshit out there. It's grating on the ears and an affront to actual acting. It's like it's specifically designed to be as annoying as humanly possible, and as over-the-top (in an awful way) as they could get it. I assume it goes back to the tradition of their stage plays where they yelled out their emotions and shit for the benefit of the audience, but god I hate it so much. It's SO fucking bad. I've never gotten that same feeling from any other language. The Chinese narrator (speaking Mandarin) in ICEY was fucking great.


It doesn't help that the writing is almost universally terrible, but always thinks it's super deep. Like the Fire Emblem trailer today where they just shouted nonsense fifth grade philosophy at each other, and that was in English. No amount of "making the character your own" is going to fix the awful, infantile dialogue being written by what I assume are just developers, because they sure as shit aren't writers. When someone actually talented at writing handles a video game story, like the Zero Time Dilemma folks, it comes across a lot better in BOTH languages. Still not the highest grade media out there, but leaps and bounds above shouting about the power of friendship and then giving some stilted platitude that means literally nothing.

100%. I cant watch anything Japanese because of the over-the-top melodramatic shouting that is considered acting. Even their porn when grown-ass adult women are crying like little school girls is absurd. Totally kills my boner. 

 

Also - things like music. I love metal. Death/Black/Grind - Shit I cant even understand anyway most of the time. A lot of good shit comes out of Europe. If its not sung in english - Im out. I  wont even pay attention to it.

This should be the least surprising thing you’ve ever heard. 

 

Censorship and such. 

This is true. The neckbeards need their video game sex symbols.

I'm just gonna wait until the full game is out. 

Me too. The game looks fantastic and I love that trailer and demo gameplay but I've waited this long for this game, I can wait for the full release.

what I am gathering is that classic mode just has your character autoattack until the ATB gauge fills up and then you pick something for them to do like cast a spell or do a special attack
