This is so sad ... I can bearly get over it ..

Did you guys KNOW that Sephiroth's voice was done by *please god have mercy on my sinful soul for uttering this crap* Lance Bass of N'Sync?

Doesn't that just BREAK YOUR HEART?

WHY OH WHY!

Geez, eternalshiva- I don't get why you get all worked up about these minor voice-overs that have like 3 (or less) lines in the whole game! lol. First you whine about Jasmine- now Sephiroth! I think they both sound fine! Get a grip! lol. No need to lose your lunch over this stuff. Now what you should really be pissed off about is Sebastian! OMG- it soooo did not sound like him! Oh well... that's another thread anyways...

And geez- you didn't know Lance Bass did his voice? lol! Everybody knows that! Do you not know about David Boreanaz as Leon, Mandy Moore as Aerith, and Christy Carlson Romano as Yuffie either? lol. Anyways, I like these people- even Lance Bass- so don't trash them! Call me gay if you want- I don't care! :goofy:

Well aside from Mandy Moore, I dont really care for any of the people who voices the FF characters. However, they did a good job, so I'll excuse them there. :D

eternalshiva
10-22-2003, 12:26 PM
*glares at Jalbrean* I do NOT whine *whines* you guys are mean.

Pfft I hate Jasmine in General and Lance Bass is just not the person I would of picked. Some guy with a British accent would of been awesome. Evil British Acceents are cool.

He did do a good job, but its still N'Sync. I'm obviously far outnumbered here so that's as much of an admittance you will get out of me begrudgingly.

So what if I didn't know. Sorry I'm not obsessed enough to know ALL the names in the VIDEO GAME. I do have somewhat of a life [add sarcastic comment by Jalbrean]

*hugs*

I'm getting worked up? MB your going on a rant about Sebastian two seconds ago >.< HA HA HA HA.

TheAbominatrix
10-22-2003, 12:45 PM
Yeah I really dont see why they went out of their way to get Lance Bass. Can you imagine how much they had to pay him to grunt a few times and say like two lines? Lord knows why they did it... maybe it was just something like the scrapped plans (or rumors) to put the boys from N'Sync in Star Wars I (or II?). It's kind of odd.

eternalshiva
10-22-2003, 01:00 PM

They probably payed him a bundle and now he's disapeared off the face of the planet.

Saddling Sephiroth with a British accent would have been the worst possible thing they could have done. Villainous Brits are a tired cliché.

DJZen
10-24-2003, 06:18 AM
EEEKS! I just can't imagine Connery doing Sephiroth! He just doesn't sound at all British in my head. He seems a lot more bishounen style than anything, so getting a member of a boy band to play him seems appropriate. Besides, did he nail "DESCEND HEARTLESS ANGEL!" or what? :D

eternalshiva
10-24-2003, 10:44 AM
You are under the evil boyband spell ... JUST LIKE JALBREAN! Ok maybe not Connery but that Collins guy, the actor whatshisface... He's super good at evil stuff ... He was in Dare Devil ... I can almost remember Collin Ferrel? what is it?

Kawaii Ryűkishi

I don't think Sephiroth should sound Irish, either.

m4tt
10-24-2003, 03:49 PM
Sephiroth sounded fine as he was. Why is Lance Bass such a big deal? So what, he's in a boyband. Mandy Moore sings pop songs, same as Lance Bass does in his boyband. Are you going to bash on Mandy Moore too?

The reason most of you don't think he sounded bad was because A) he barely talked B) you could barely hear him when he actually did talk, or C) they modified his voice so it didn't sound exactly like him. If you heard what he sounded like without that little echo, you'd agree that it was a horrible decision.

(Sniff) I know he did do a good job but Sephy is not to be vioced by a boy band pretty boy and Tidus and Wakka in KH shoulda have had their original voice actors from FFX; James Arnold Taylor (Tidus) and John DiMaggio (Wakka and also did Kimahri) not Shaun Fleming (Tidus) and Dee Bradley Baker (Wakka) really give us the original voice actors it doesn't really matter since Tidus and Wakka are only in the biginning and don't really get any real dialogue they better have Matt McKenzie as Auron in KHII or I'll be angry!

DJZen

A) he barely talked

He talked plenty during the fight. In fact, I think he averaged a voice clip once every 2 seconds.


B) you could barely hear him when he actually did talk

Only if he was attacking at the time, and there were plenty of chances to hear him clearly. Most noteable is when he says "Show me your true power!"


C) they modified his voice so it didn't sound exactly like him. If you heard what he sounded like without that little echo, you'd agree that it was a horrible decision.

As someone who does sound editting all the time for fun, echo will NOT change someone's voice for the better. Echo (or, more appropriately, reverb) is well known for ruining vocals, not for improving them. It can add atmosphere to the particular sample, but it can't make a bad voice good. Also, if you've got the voice samples without echo, feel free to post 'em so we can judge for ourselves. I'm fine with Lance Bass playing Sephiroth and I HATE N'Twync. I HATE them. Why am I okay with it then? BECAUSE IT DOESN'T MATTER. He did fine, now stop moping around because he "ruined" your mental image of how cool Sephiroth is. In fact, go play the ORIGINAL original Resident Evil, THEN tell me Lance Bass did a bad job.

"What IS this?"

"What is it?"

"It's blood"

"Chris's blood?"

"I don't know... Why don't you LOOK AROUND while I examine this..."

Giga Guess

I think he did a good job! He lent a kind of....ageless quality to Sephiroth...I think. Maybe the whole boyband thing was a mistake...he should get into voice acting!

Ansem: Down boy.

Kounetsu: You like him too!

Ansem: No... I don't like LB, I like JT.

Kounetsu: Oh yeah.........

Ansem: Anywho, Lance made a perfect Sephiroth! And, it only makes sense that Tidus' and Wakka's voice actors changed because the KH T and W are younger than FFX T and W. They're kids, they shouldn't have adult voices! That's not right! And all the other voice actors rocked too! (although, I still say they should've let Cid talk)

Oh, and...

But I do have to admit, Wakka's voice DID disappoint me. The accent was ALL wrong. The other two were not bad.

Ouch!
08-27-2004, 10:36 PM
From what I've heard fighting Sephiroth, he says:
"I am the chosen one!" randomly while he's walking around.
"Show me your true power!" before his omnislash-estique thing, I think.
"Sin of Heartless Angel," that's up for debate on what he actually says.
"Dodge this," when he's down to his last bar and does the spinning attack.

He probably says other things that I've missed.

I don't think Lance did a bad job. Pretty much every voice actor did a great job. Wakka wasn't bad, they just made the wrong choice.

Voices (http://db.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/file/kingdom_hearts_voice.txt)

Most voices used in Kingdom Hearts came from people who are voices, have been voices, or have been in some sort of Disney movie or show.

Disney connections for Lance Bass: (well, the only ones I saw)
"Kim Possible" (2002) (voice) (as Lance Bass) in episode: "Oh Boyz" (episode # 2.23) 2 April 2004
Walt Disney World Christmas Day Parade (2003) (TV) .... Himself (this one doesn't really count though, since it was after KH)

I think Sephiroth would've sounded better with Mewtwo's voice (from Super Smash Bros. Melee), but with a slightly higher pitch.

P.S. The voice of Rikku is done by the same person who does the voice of Powerpuff Girl Bubbles. Click here (http://us.imdb.com/name/nm0152839) to see.

DJZen
09-02-2004, 07:58 PM
Why do you people care so much? It's not like he's singing in it. Even if he was, I don't know if I'd really care. Face it, you're just pissed because of Lance's image. You don't approve, and thus, to you they can never do anything right. Way to be mature, guys.

Rikku was voiced by Bubbles? That's awesome! I never knew that! I love PPG!!!!!! <3333333333333 :love:

But not as much as I love Heidegger.....

I don't like NSYNC because I choose not to like them. I don't like "boybands" of any sort. Why? I don't know, and I don't care to know. I just decided not to like them. However, I don't go around preaches how gay or stupid they are either, so I'm pretty much a nuetral in this. I mearly stated that I would've liked it better if the voice of Mewtwo was done for Sephiroth, but with a slightly higher pitch.

By the way, DJzen...uh...there's something wrong with you... :lol: j/k.

I'm not a snot I just don't want a badass like Sephiroth acted by some pretty boy from N'Stink it is better than voiced by a wussy like Justin Timberlake (he woulda sucked anyway as Sephiroth) from Backstreet Wussies.

DJZen
09-03-2004, 03:14 AM
It annoys me because you wouldn't care if you didn't know. That's the ultimate example of how stupid this whole ordeal is. I've never heard anyone complain about Sephiroth's voice until they find out who voiced him. In fact, most people heard about the fact before they ever heard his voice and made up their mind right then and there. It's prejudiced, it's juvenile, and it gets on my nerves almost as much as someone driving down my street at night blasting Limp Bizkit. If you have such a huge problem with things not being badass and/or hardcore, you might want to take up a hobby that wasn't pioneered by pasty geeks who live with their mothers at age 30.

I'm sorry if anyone was offended by that, but this whole notion of "hardcore games" just really bothers me a lot. It's the changing of the guard. From video games that are fun to play, to video games with bad gameplay and tons of blood. I think it might be best, however, if I let the boys from Penny Arcade speak for me: http://penny-arcade.com/view.php3?date=2004-05-05

Personally, I think Mandy Moore did a fanTAStic job as Aerith. Really, no one stands out in my mind as a "bad" voice-over, except Wakka. My main problem is his accent. They got it all wrong on KH. In FFX, it was kinda Hawaiian, whereas in KH it was more Jamaican. Or so I percieved.

Well I wanted to say that this whole discontent was completely and utterly stupid but alot of you already have so I'll just agree. Lance Bass did a great job, it's a very believable voice for Sephiroth. And beside, what does it even matter? If you really wanted some "bad-ass" to do his voice, they would have probably gotten someone like Vin Diesel, Sylvestre Stallone, or Mr. T. Maybe Lance Bass wasn't such a bad choice, eh?

P.S. I'll bet Robin Williams could do a good Kefka voice =O
