    Wolf Kanno totally did a different voice in the intro to this, I'm tellin' ya. Confused the hell out of me when he spoke to Fynn in a totally different voice.

    SOURCE: I edited the voice files.

    The intros will always sound weird tho. Like, listen to me take off at the speed of sound in the beginning

    Okay, I can't watch the whole thing here at work but everyone's comments about WK's voice I had to hear a little bit of it. WK, your voice is so deep and smooth

    My voice just naturally slips into that tone I use in the beginning. Mainly when I'm reading off stuff. I've been told I have the making for a very smooth villain voice.

    Perfect accompaniment for my train journey to work this morning!

    I still have my original copy of FFXII. Unfortunately, my purchase of it coincided with the death of my PS2 from a water infection. That being the case I've never experienced the game. I remember the reaction to it upon release though and I agree with everything you guys said. Including how some attitudes to the game seem to have changed over the years.

    Having recently aquired a new PS2 the question I need to ask myself is... do I wait for the HD version or do I experience it sooner than that in all its retro glory?

    Both the original and HD version will be different enough that I feel you can easily play both, it just comes down to whether you like the story or not. The original pretty much allowed you to build the party however you wanted to, whereas the HD version will have a job class system.

    A 'smooth criminal' if you would.

    Psy aedited some of our stuff out for time, but we also mentioned some other interesting things:

    • there's a mode in the game that's even faster than turbo mode but they couldn't show it at E3 because in the Lhusu Mines they'd just keep bumping into walls
    • a map overlay function has been added, so now you can look at the whole map of the area as you run around
    • the sound quality of the voices has been vastly improved
    • okay, we didn't really talk about this, but I just remembered that this was mentioned during the E3 presentation, but the load times between the areas are much shorter now, taking virtually no time at all, so FFXII is now a tiny bit closer to being a full-on open world game

    It looks just as much like ass on old TVs. The assiness was just smaller and blurrier.

    Bluriness was as close as we came to anti-aliasing back on the PS2 xD

    But that will give you a headache. FFXII on an old TV won't, no matter how bad you say it looks
