On this episode: @Chrinkster @Estrella_8 @Oluwaponz

Okay, guys, welcome to for is academia. This is podcast episode thirty and I enjoying the punlet by Punley. I guys, and there's still everyone. So you guys been up to this week? We been watching, reading, not doing should be doing. I started watching because I've been seeing peace. Many people talk about Viking, so I'll start watching that. Okay, I get a little bit of what's so far, so good, by money, like on season one. Still like episode six and I'm still continuing my play for Fiz and Z are dawn. That's really only game playing mainly. Maybe I'll play for you for in there, but Yah, I'm still playing horizons are a dawn. I've write thought so many hours on that game, but I love fun, the deals. I've done the extra deal C content. Now I'm going back to the main game. Okay, probably, I'll probably not complaining the next time, sometime next week or thumping for yeah, fantastic game, and then I don't know what game I'll go on to next, maybe, but to demons force. Yeah, that's a use. No fuckings. That the kind of obviously the Vikings one, because I was recommended to watch vikings after game of friends ended, so I was told. You know, he's just still she's Gore. Still got that bit of that taste for game of friends. So Watch Viking. So that's been on my list for such a long time. So exact to start as well. And in terms of this week, I actually made time to sit down and watch some TV, like on Netflix, because I haven't been using it as much. So I actually finished the entire first series of looping and like two days. Really really good sub obviously because we do dubbed around here. So so, which is really interesting as quite refreshing to watch such an interesting French drama, for at the French every now and again they bring out a really good one. So even also quite interesting to watch and as much as not similar to the anime, it was a really interesting adaptation to follow. So I need, if I said, six now. HMM. It's funny how everyone thought looping was going to be linked to the anime, but they didn't know that loop in the third existed far beyond, way wait before the looping anime ever existed. But yeah, I mean myself, I've been watching. I mean I call up with Jiujitsu Kaisen. I need to catch up from that. I say that I release even started. I'm on your own lap, Chap. I want to start reading the Manga. Keep saying this. So, yeah, go see. I've been meaning to read the Manga as well. I just need to know where I need to start in comparison with the anime. I don't want to completely start over again because I just have have the time. I've been reading book, you know, here again, because after all my Manga APPs and Kapoots, I kind of lost track of where to read anime and we were to read Manga. But I happened to me as well. I'm now got another Manga up. I'm going to look through the up my previous at the final the mangaht. Yeah, yeah, and you said that new Manga up, because, yeah, I just I'll searched mangoes. It's a secret. Have to beat that. Yeah, we'll beat that. I borrow, I'll bring it to you. I'll let you know in the groups. Yeah, by releases, guys. Yeah, in terms of in terms of gaming, I've been playing rainbow six siege, which is really interesting. Today I'm planning on playing some OTS of OAR traveler, trying to get back into that again, playing a peg's can be hard work and sometimes I think it's that initial we first start. Yeah, when you first start as long, but then when you get into it, then you get hurt. Yeah, exactly, as always been me. So, yeah, in terms of news, so what's the first bit of news that we've got? I mean one that came about last week was Harry Potter Being Delayed Till Two Thousand and twenty two. So was that all right? Harry butter, the...

Harry Potter game? Yeah, which for which console? Oh, I think it's my is multi platform? Yeah, okay, yeah, because multi platform. So I don't know what that means. I don't know if it means that the game in its current state isn't good or if they want to put so much into it that I release this year isn't a viable and then you've also got the case of everyone's looking at cyberpunk and looking hot, looking at how badly that furned out. So this shot, nobody wants to make that the same mistaken promise a date that they can't deliver. Yeah, so, which they can't deliver? Some funkers really made it high profile and or they really brought to the spotlight. HMM. Yeah, ages has it hasn't died down a little bit. Maybe I'm not in blute. You know what, there is outrage, but I would say that that the was a Wednesday, Tuesday ones if I've got someone us inside, profunk actually. Yeah, so on Tuesday. I think one of them, one of the founders, yet under fathers can direct. Yeah, it did a kind of it's almost like a keynote essentially, essentially speaking to the public, explaining what we're what we're wrong with the cyberpunk release and what things were done, how they didn't really believe the game was finished and they made bad calls. They also US thought they plan to do moving forward for out two thousand and twenty one and beyond, and I think because of that it did get quite a good response. Even when you look at the like the lights of this like ratio on the we on the Youtube Video, it's pretty good. It seems that people do have a bit of confidence. It probably will get right. Yeah, yeah, I think I'll get right as or but yeah, yeah, saw that as I did watch eat eat. The management did. So don't blame the developers. Blame it on the management themselves. It was their call. EXCEECH or they said they thought the game was fine from but I don't know about that. There's a few things of the thing. I have an issue because they said they thought the game was finally did their test, did q way testing and stuff. But really you should have known seen from a get going, especially with the base models pierce used for next book day. It was no, we need goods because you can see from the get good of bug and glitches. But yeah, they did say that. The stuff. Yeah, they said I think the next year UPATES are coming out the second half of this year, and also that I was actually seen a new another article today. Funny Enough, was it to day yesterday, and which can of is someone news? Actually, the thereves didn't think the game should shipping. They fought the game. You Shift in two thousand and twenty two. Hmm Oh, that's a big dest of yeah, massive games for again. I came out in two thousand and twenty. The really of Shit in two thousand and twenty two. This says quite a bit, man, that some others quite a lot. It's a fact that you said that. How the management was saying that they thought that the game was fine to reason in two thousand and twenty just shows I think. To me I just kind of get the impression that their standard is work too high to accept something that would be fine. You know, would you know one something to be excellent, topnotch though issues. I thought they were just willing to say, well, it's fine, it's okay, how it is. That's just put out there get some money. So, yeah, I think it's very much shows that they they're stilas they all aware that it was just fine and not the best I could have been exactly for CD pull it. Yeah, it was as bad over as we said for CD project because they guys have been held to such a high standard for, you know, be on the right side of the game. Has Been So contumer friendly and yeah, it's like, as I a lot to build back up anyway for that. But yeah, we'll see. It's gonna Happen. The Games will come out good when they finally do all the patches and stuff and actually get off my money finally doing from our start playing the game again. I'm not asking. I'M gonna can't returning now anyway. But yeah, I'm still way her seat. Yeah, this is what is way pass returned they anyway. So I'm still waiting out for when it comes. I think you'll complete anyway. But yeah, we'll see. I'm sure you can because, hey, we've got our General Council here. Chris, legal side. Sure you got some sectary rights? I can find a what back con see the rights. Definitely so for but yeah, there's also been yeah, I mean there's also been news. So exaspt for one thing I did see on the Internet recently. I think there's a couple sources by essentially GTA six, which we have known has been in development for quite some time. Apparently there's some new information that's apparently late, and allegedly we're finally...

...going to get a female protagonist, okay, as the main character, and still no idea where it's going to be. But I think it's quite an interesting change to have a female lead character because to my knowledge, you've never been able to use a female character in a duty a game. M Yeah, no, not in the knee. Yeah, I don't think you have actually the teacher game. That wouldn't come duty online because that's just making your own character anyway. But yes, they are wise here detay, and I haven't I can't think of any. Yeah, it would be interesting time to be fair as well. Well, that's about time as well. Where would you like the location for the Jucsix to being at the time? Maybe they should re visit size revisits. I see, I don't know. Nah, any other are yeah, London, long of the show. Actually, I like to see them do London actually, you know, in stall London. I like to see that as well. And this game Africa, for that could be fun. HMM, Legos, you know what it is. United is with with Africa. I can see them, because you'd have to really, really understand Africulture a lot of these search but I think it could be good day. Yeah, it could, it could be. It definitely could be. I don't think they will, and that's mostly due to, you know, misconceptions about Africa and even though rock style may be aware of like clock, there's plenty of amazing places in Africa. There's a large infrastructure roads, trains, landmark. The majority of the people that are going to go into buy the game or know that. Yeah, true, I could see in Cape Town, you know. Yeah, see, I could see, I could see, I could decade somewhere in South Africa. I could definitely see happening. Will it happen? Very Unlikely. I think it's going to be somewhere, somewhere a bit more Western. So be I think it'd either be the use. It's most likely going to be the US, but if it wasn't going to be the US, I think it would probably be the United States. I'm sorry, I'll be you know, United Kingdom, boring. Who Done it? Okay, town, okay, time will be good to see Cape Town. I can actually see it. HMM. Definitely. And there's also needs on an Indiana Jones game, which apparently is not other. Is it want to be coming out this year? I think it might be coming out later on this year, possibly. I'd even read before, so I know. Yeah, that store. Yeah, jrk is going to be sorry. Go for it. No, go on, I wasn't say you're can be sex books exclusive? I don't. I don't think so. Yeah, I don't. I think so. But we don't know what the future of the furst the Games hold now that Microsoft on them. I could definitely see it coming exclusively to game pass, a free game pass. Yeah, so I could see that being something that would interest a lot of people into buying the nextbox and getting game pass. How the game will play I'm not sure I can think of like parallels between, you know, fall out and then playing, you know, like the Indiana Jones film like Temple of Doom, where that there's a lot of kind of dark, gloomy areas, and I'm sure with next gend technology you could have a decent storyline, really really massive landscapes to travel across. So, you know, yeah, but, yeah, yeah, and as they did say as well, about you be soft making a star war an open world star wars game. Oh, yeah, which pleased. Yeah, which basically signals the end. We thank God for EA's exclusivity for Star Wars Games. Nothing about time, because E A, I don't want to get into you. But yeah, I'm glad this stop that. Now for other companies. I have a go at the game some we'll see what you be saw us to do. Even though you be soft a bit and mess as well, at least now gives more watchers for other companiess do do any something the star wars license? Yeah, I mean a A. Anybe have had their fashion problems, you know, with paid to win and boxes and all sorts, but I think maybe in the hands of someone else. So be interesting to see what star wars would be...

...like yeah, but who knows? Nice we'll see when these guys come out, because right now you can never predict what you like. I don't say so. That's cool, that's true. But yeah, onto onto the main topic and quick question. Some of the versus dubbed. Okay, some of us is dubbed. Yeah, I'm music to fair. I used to be always just sub sub, but allowed more these days. I feel like maybe sometimes I may need dumb because in case I'm looking at the screen, i. e. tell that she here. You know, maybe here is I can understand because, like some cause a lot more concentration. You have to see this reader, subtitles of that, and I'm just like sometimes I just made won't do to you know, just easy. Don'tys have as much concentration, right, and as that is. That hold the same for anime and all other mediums of media. So is that so all of the mediums of medium? For me I'm lazy. I can't make I like sometimes I haven't not as much concentricks. And another another question I'll ask you. Are you someone who has subtitles even when the characters are speaking English? Sometimes he'd say yes, I'm post times sometimes. Sometimes, sometimes I'm really conflicted. I'm really conflicted when I'm watching something and people speaking in English and I'm still reading some titles, because it's like fair enough. Sometimes, if you're in allowed place or wherever, it can help kind of guide the conversation. Sometimes, if some people's accents, and they might, they might mutter certain words, it means that you can't hear what they're saying clearly and sometimes can help clarify that. But for the most part it's like you speak the same language. So why am I reading this? I know what they're saying, but who knows? How about your stuff? I think that also comes in handy for people who are you can't hear. So yeah, they might. Yeah, exactly. So I think it's a different story altogether if you're hard. But if you aren't and your eye sighthis, fine, it's like why? Yeah, it's it's a bit like why, but I do it sometimes. It's weird. Yeah, I prefer subs I know it can be a lot of work and it is annoying to sometimes the when you get ready night outbviously you night outs haven't nonexistence for a year, but you know night out, you want to catch up on a bit of narcos, but you can't because you got to read. If your subtitles just think it's bad. It's just annoying. But it while it can be a little of extra work to have to follow and read in English, I feel like it's really as a lot more immersive and really I feel like you get more out of it because you can kind of just kind of just see the hand of the passion and it's did at the delivery of the script and its original language. It's meant to be, and I found that once. Sometimes I do give dumb versions a quick listen and within like five minutes on the Slat I can't do this and I just go back to suds because I'd rather listen to it and it's it's in it's original audio language. Yeah, as much works work as it can be. Example like I gave, I remember watching money highest. I remember watching money I've in English first. I was like yeah, like teen minutes I was like this is not not slapping right now, I went back and changed it and this is a Spanish as at all I get into. So I just watch the same scene. So for me makes a big difference watching it stumped watching any foreign language show. So, HMM, anytime I read or sometimes any time I put subtitles, it's, example, if I'm watching something in French, which I understand anyway, but sometimes I just want to just clarify them. Understandings just like ten out of ten. So I'll be like, oh, yes, he said but even so, sometimes even the subtitles are even correct. Yeah, yeah, anyway, do you got I read it. I'm like, he didn't say that, but okay, you do get that. You Yeah, I think for me I'll know what if I'm playing a video game, for example, when they have subtitles, I tend to keep him on, and that's usually because I can. I can read a lot faster than they can speak. So it means a lot of the time I can skip through that happen to hear the entire audio clips, because sometimes it can be a bit longer time I send them. With Games sometimes, I know everyone's different, but with myself I want to progress and get into the main parts of the game experience as soon as possible and yeah, sometimes sometimes just help. I hope with did. Some you may have missed something they've said and you can't always go back so until you've pressed a or...

...x or whatever, what they said is still on to screen. Say, it does help. Yeah, I'vel I'm a really rubbish Gamer and that says I'm not doing a game it anyway. But happened to say a game. I thought the skill, all the talking, I skips get skid. It's not. Yeah, you know, I'm so bad of that as well, because sometimes I see and then it's like, hold on, what's happening? Why is he here? Where am I going again? And even with a lot of the games I have, the reason I haven't gone back to them just because I have no idea what I'm doing anymore, because I didn't read anything and it just gets its skipped. But yeah, don't my subtitles is is a purse a very subjective yeah, right, yeah, I remember. I used to play the POKEMON pokemon yellow pokem on yellow on game boy. They do so much talking. I was let me go and just find go back to the shop, do I have to do? And the same, similar to what you said, I just forget what my task was. I just that's why I feel like I used to take a lot longer to come to complete games back then, because I just wasn't following. I wasn't following the story. That's comb the last reads. And they too talk a lot. I feel like it's the pokemon days of bath and day. Yeah, I think with me, my attention spam was so sure. It's like there's so many times when they started talking and a completely los interest just on set off a game. I don't know if I don't Pally, we know. But with an animal crossing, for example. Oh, I hate if you show your games. Not My type of game, so I'm not hate on it too much. Sorry. No, no, it's not a lot of improving in a car. I just like I am. But just reading you guys get so excited when he's Day came out. I'm like, this is like nintendogs. We just have to look after your dog and you got a build a world like it's I don't know, I'm not that Gama. You know. What I'd say is that you have to with animal crossing specially, you have to play it to properly understand it, because I remember my first animal crossing game was wild wild on the UNINTENDO DS. Before then, the the concept of animal crossings felt a bit foreign to me. It's like you're basically just doing real life stuff in a game. How I see it is it is literally that money is basically a short to play the game. Yeah, I'm not touch touch like once, maybe a month now, if I can be bothered. Yeah, so that's that's what it's like at first in it. So yeah, it'd be off putting for a lot of people, but when you actually play it and there's loads of things you can do and you can create your own you create your own little island, putting from where you want to design your house, all these kind of things. It because and because of the fact, I think one of the main things is because of the fact you don't have to invest a lot in the game all in one goal. You don't need to play four, five, six hours a day. You can literally pay thirty hours, I'm sorry, thirteen minutes a day, maybe four, five days a week, and still get that same satisfaction that someone who's grinding out playing ten hours at ten hours a day, it's only spent ten hours a day, would get. So it's quite fun. It's one of those it's one of those games where you kind of have to experience it to understand it. I don't think the pocket camp, the iphone version really did any justice. I know some people think it's similar to that, but that was a lot of like pay to progress where you were and in essence, what you could do as pay to skip time. So, like in pocket camp, I know it takes like a certain amount of hours to build something and then you could make it cook o if you bought this whatever. But with animal person is very consistent, very fun. Share your world, how people come over, invite people, they can leave gifts and all sorts. So it's quite fun. It's not for everyone. HMM, I mean, I yeah, I mean I bought it. Yeah, I boy, and I've been I've barely played it. When I played like ten minutes of it for I check, you'll be horrific. But yeah, this Niggas, still the turn. But yeah, onto the main topic. So well, we on it, not really. We were kind of, kind of. It was kind of yeah, but essentially looks the way, guys. Yeah, a little segue. Do you guys believe that? Sorry, sorry, sorry, no, Ris. Do you guys believe that voice...

...actors and no more actors deserve the same recognition all? Would you say they deserve the same respect for their ability. So we say normal actors. Just to clarify. Don't worry. Yeah, none. So we talked about live actually, like live action TV shows and movies, all the originals. Is that you're talking about? No, no, just generally, if you can compare both, and you can compare generally. So, for example, you could compare. I get what you means. Of example, if I'm watching desperate housewives, yeah, and I'm go watching it in France, am I then trying to see due respects the voice actress of even and Gloria or even ongoria herself? I mean that is that is one question in itself. Okay, another question is so you could answer that. Another question itself is voice actors generally and normal actors generally. So it could be you could compare people in blockbuster movies to people in Blockbuster Games and people in Niche Games to people in small TV shows. So would you say that both are just as talented as each other? Do you think I probably would? I would probably because of friends. I think voice actually, as to you, it's still happen to do, even though you don't really show you. I think, Mark Ye, you see facial expressions, etc. With the body language and stuff with when name to the role voice acts needs, you have to do still do a lot of different voices etc. Problem really seldom role of Lake like animated character. You are as well. You can do you can do a voice acting for the me can sound really planned, but you know you have to really put that. You still have to put a lot of big performance into that in that performance of doing that character. Just trying to think some of here. Like, for example, Regina Queen, she's quite he's a really a voice actor. Regina King, she didn't do is okay, yeah, she did. Yeah, here you rally lely and she's done a few other thinks. She's done with fewer voice that voice actually roles for other stuff. But yeah, I'm thinking in the Bruno see she's done amazing job there, but I think they said they deserve as much as much respect anyway. Even um in black pant for what's his name? That was claul. What's his name again? Camember his name, but he's done. He's a brilliant voice actor as well. I'm just trying to may even Google one second. I'm trying to find think what roles I know he was a voice actor for trying to even look now, but so give you one second. I'm just trying to find this because I need to find what it was. I'm trying to think what voice acting roles he was in. But no, you have I think the like I said, you do this, that they do deserve recognition. But come back to me. I want to find it. What rolls this guy was in? Okay, yeah, I mean for me it's I think they both deserve as much recognition as each other in terms of the the what they need. Do need, is the same sort of appreciation because, yeah, my thing with voice actors is fair enough. They don't need to pull facial specials off for Harry out. So they do, though, in the studio. I mean, I mean they don't want is that they don't have to. So it's not. It's not something that's required when your voice acting. You don't know. Sorry, I was going to say is what I found out. You don't. What's his name? Is Name is and the circus was chlorine back Panapo, but he's also the way. He was a voice of I think it's a voice of Gon them, you know, in Lord the Rings. Yeah, what you want? What was Lord of the Rings? He was a voice so he's R, he'sa means these counting. The count model of Golm was based off of him to begin with. So so he was. That's that was more than a voice acting role. That was money. or Caesar as well. Yeah, yeah, he but your Caesar is what you'll season, the value the apes. So he did CEGI. So was it? Yeah, it wasn't just what I mean. It counts. Definitely what for his far of his situation, it was more than they did some face capturing, and that's why you can see Golum has a resemblance. It's I get what you mean. I'm just trying to think. He was. Yes, so he was up, as he said, he was season. It's also supremely the smoking the Star Wars sequels.

You know, just fus week Wakens and last year, though, it smoke. But yeah, he's an amazing things actor, even when you got even you've got mark Hammil as well. He's an amazing voice tactor now, but you see the thing with him as act because he's an actor, because these guys are say that these guys are active to these guys are actors. Yeah, that's the thing. I think a lot of them. I think that's the thing as well. I don't think that you have really yet. I'm not think a lot of people are just voice acting. I can't we think of much, but I think a lot of my actors and voice actors, but they probably he does get recognition for his walls. Yeah, I was just thinking that, as he fells name, are ones that also accomplished actors as well. So they just did multi talented amazing. They are very prolific and voice acting the scene, like I said, mark camel and the memberinds, SSAR, etc. And Regina King as well. But then, but then not, as you said. I do agree with Chris saying that they was that deserve mother recognition anyway, because they really do sell the role and making. You do get invested in some of these animated characters as well, a lot due to voice act and as well. So I fully agree with Chris. I agree, I think. I think, for example, I think the start difference between those ones that you named them some of the other ones one might be referring to is that, example, Regina King, Mark Camels, they've all made. They've all made their names through from acting, yeah, movies and previous not from being able to go and not from being as what you find is that people who are, you know, predominantly voice actors don't really get that recursion and recognition even in terms of their names. Yeah, yeah, very, very I think they are like, for example, when it comes to anime, there are voice actors where Sus. You hear like well, I had this voice the different things. Yeah, and then when you realize, and in for some when you kind of you kind of given like a nest or different works that they've been involved and you're like wow, they've voice dis character, this character, this character, then I thought that helps them maybe just become known within their own communities and this. Yeah, yeah, yeah, because you see them from all roles. Like Fusar was, who's Lucy's voice acting? What does he do? Or she is it? Yeah, yes, she isn't age. She yes'. She does have a comment, whatever characters he does. Does a lot. Yes, always, one does a lot as well. Even you can go and you can dis it goes into gaming as well. A lot of gaming voice actors as well. M fantastic roles, like quite creates his voice actor back in the in the two thousand and eighteen go the amazing voice actor really sold that new kind of more humble, say humble, more solemn creators in that game. As you said, as I'll say before as a Christal sayings, they does are the recognition as well, because they just, as I keep saying, you really become, you can really become emotions attached to some of these characters, because the way, yeah, I specially when they change, like when it comes an America, like, Oh, hold on second, you know's not doing the voice that they used to be. I'm like you, you notice it? Yeah, I do understand that. I do understand that voice acts as well, go say with fame, because obviously they're not visually out there. You're not always looking at, Oh, who paid this voice? Who did this? Who Done? He did that? When you think of Zoro, you don't think the Zara's voice. That's so. You think of Missari, the anime character with the green hair, sore swords. Yeah, the same boof. You think about his Straw Hoigh, you think about you sky, you think about is is going gun arms. You don't know about who's playing these characters and what it takes to play these characters. We know, I mean most of us have watched voice hactors and action and you know that when they're performing it's almost like they may as well be performing in live action. German they had the same facial expressions. No, because I feel like most of the good ones I've seen, they tend to they tend to when they're performing it's almost like they are the character, not just putting on a voice. Yeah, I agree, partially because I've seen, for example, I've seen clips floating around on the socials of behind the scenes action of the voice actors actually delivering their lines and yeah, cool. I always found it fascinates actually watching them, just actually see the person behind the...

...characters. Then I found, for example, particular in Manger, a lot of the voice actors are very old. So not very old, but there are people sign age. So the kind of say that, yeah, I could see these these voice active laylofy in the live action. I don't think that. What? No, is that what that's I got? That's what you meant? No, no, no, that's what I'm Feren to. I'm just talking would be the effort that they put into voice acting is can can be almost as much as a normal actors putting into their acting. They may not be able to play the same role. Obviously, with with if we have a old a middleaged woman playing, I'm doing the voice of a young man, it's not really going to work out. No, but a lot of the time, if you do see the way these for example, a good example is creator, creates in in the God of war. So his voice actor not only does he do the voice of Creatos, but he's actually the body model for Creatos in that game. So a lot of the Times he's, you know, moving about, some a lot most the sea. They did nothing. Yeah, I think I remember you. So. Yeah, so they're the voice actors and they are also the the models that the characters are based off, and they know that. They know that they can do this because when these characters are delivering these speeches and delivering these moments, it's very, very expressive in body language and as a result of that, you're able to do it. We've seen it in the last of US two. We've seen it in games like their stranding. Yeah, had the actor in them from what's his name, walking dead heart and his name he's in that game. Is that he show I'm just understlack in my lack of knowledge and know and I was sick walking dad. HMM, was now? I don't watching. Only seen very, very little walking dead myself. Yeah, he's got like anny Google it from vice myself. Yeah, well, we's that. What's that? Thing is hard. You have to put across everything in Yourman read us. Yeah, yeah, yeah, he's in there. Go, he's in the stranding. Yeah, and it's weird because his character model in this strending is himself. So it's not like a new designed character by Kojima's actually Norman readers playing a character in a game. It's weird by works. So it's kind of like having actors in the game. We've seen it and in black ops where we had what's this guy's name, the one from house of cards that got taken off o Kevin Space, Kevin Spacey. Kevin Spacey played a major role in black ops three, I believe. So he was playing a character, but as Kevin Space. It's weird. So it's Kevin Space is character model playing another character. So saying an actor playing himself who was an actor. He's playing somebody else. But yeah, that that happens. are like some of the years and that like with Keyanu Reeves as well in silent from yeah, yeah, same thing. Ye, same thing as well. Yeah, I think there must be some form of I don't know if it's true, or there must be some kind of voice actual awards somewhere where those people are recognized with their work. I think it's something that we would hear of. But, as you guys both said, that they really do make that difference in the portrayal of the characters that they're that they're playing in their roles. I remember watching the Disney movie soul over Christmas and I remember the main characters name. I was just like, Oh, wasn't it? WHO's The pot? It was Jamie Fox, Jimmy Fox, but he's talented anyway. But I was just like wow, like telling the scary do all these axes and things. Just gets back to what you guys raised earlier about how a lot of the movies watch, a lot of the movies do you watch, show a kind of paid by really good actors, but I feel like sometimes it doesn't always work, like sometimes when those actors or famous people try to do voice acting roles, it doesn't always translate well. Beyonct oh, yeah, the trader, and I was like Nope, the film by know how I've seen the film. Voice acting wasn't great. I can't lie. It was a smell, it was no idea. It wasn't great. For me. Even had one and I heard, are you with me? Lions as like not, this is that? Is this even another number one that was actually so someone who's actually a good actor who...

...had a really bad voice acting role. What's his name in the actor that plays try and anister? Oh, yeah, his name, piece are thank Ledge that? PC and Peter Drink. Yeah, it's yeah, so Peter dinklage in he played the I can remember what you call it, but the thing that accompanies you in destiny and his far poor. Sorry, don't like a grim reaper. I heard you. It's the Passon your companies you wear and destiny the game, the video, yeah, after life, oh no, no, the game destiny reaper. There's like a little flying robot thing. I can remember someone, some people know what it is, but it but he plays that in the first destiny game and there was so many complaints because of how disinterested is performance was that I think they even put they they changed the the voice or they gave you an option to change the voice. That's how bad it was and I so who we know is a very, very good actor, but when it came down to a voice, Hepti roll. Maybe it was just this instance, but it didn't turn out as good as you should have. Yeah, and even I remember, I think it was a couple of years ago, maybe early like twenty two thousand and ten, two two thousand and fifteen, I remember Rihanna playing this voice, acting the role in a kids film and I remember just hearing just to slip up the trailer Carr in the tight of the film, and I was like this is just so false like this. What acting is it for Rihanna? And I know that at the time, you know when you're famous, because I'm sure there are loads of different projects that famous people like to have a go, try and try, and then, because they whoever they are, the studios. I'm just saying, okay, we'll have you on board, but it just doesn't necessary work. So hopefully I don't want to hear any more voice acts and orso beyond, because that it took away from the it took away from liking a little bit me. Anyway, I don't come across as an actor to me. Yeah, from dream, dream girls. You did well. I haven't seen dream girls. Oh, I've seen a bits of it, but not enough. I'm sorry, it's not mark it's not my kind of movie, but I gotta wats dream girls. Yeah, I've Seen Rihanna a couple times in movies and she's shocking. Yeah, it's not good. Jesus, things fancy and music. I'm the bee hive and the Navy don't come for four eyes. Yeah, don't wonder. I love beyonce musically, yea, and NA when she's singing, not acting, she's singing. I'm not designing either. Yeah, I don't know. Involved in that. One of the store and has a look. Definitely. Definitely. Actually, I made it. If I cut myself out, are you doing video on? Did all yours? Go? Hear it, but yeah, I'll just cuts. Go ahead. No, you are not to say. When we kind of talk about voice actors, I think the type of voice actors are used to kind of full trace sad characters can also impact those those who have preferences over subs and dumped m I think it plays apart. You can just just the way something kind of sound to an individual person's ear can actually make them decide to say, I don't like the way, for example, a lot of people complain about go go Ki's voice dress they didn't like it, so I'll give it that. I td of the year is I can't watch dragon ball. So because the high pitched voice of Gakus acts doesn't make it doesn't make sense to them. Was it preferred to watch in English? Hmm, I think that plays apart. Yeah, a lot of it boys down to what you used to do, and in the case of Drang Bull Z especially, I I've I've always, always had a preference for the English the English dub all the time, every single time. And even when I tried to watch super in Japanese when it first came out, it literally put me off the entire TV show. It put me off the show. Till this day I've not seen it. So I've not seen any of super because I really yeah, I watched it. Super was funny, so I watched it fine. But yeah, I get what you mean, because I figure even then you really recognize with grouper's character. For us it was the just that fun animation dub that the voice actors are go through. If you do you except to it. They did such an amazing job. I have my grapes...

...with Dragon Ball Z as a whole, but the whole voice thing and the slow start to the story just kind of sewing me off completely to point where I thought, yeah, you know what, something that's right enough. Now get what you mean. I tried, I'm I don't like I've tried, but I think used because I did a go watching dragon war in English in the first place. So the first time I'll we heard it I was in my teens and I was like, what is this like? English? I like, I don't know who, I think it's comes. His name Krillian in it, I think, where he calls go gus, like go cool, and I was like yeah, it just makes me just shrivel up. And I was like yeah, in Japanese, like right, no, no, no, no, it's just here another way. Even I'm the only dumb character that I don't mind. And draggon Boll is with Jesus, that's an I can tolerate. I could tolerate it. The others it's just so awesome. Piccolo and the jets, I can I can deal with the others, but they even talk that offended the same actor. Oh yeah, that makes sense, so I can. Yeah, isn't so bad. For Fair enough, I did love puff googas. Woe at to us. Cool, I was fine find not even he was even with the courier's voice acting as smash propis. Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, cool guys. I thought it's just the Americans that sometimes I'm like carrying away in a d thing. You know, let me even say don't for people voice. That the something. Even these fun voice actor the frindubs, actually a made. Some of them are actually made a voice acts. Even look at, for example, Dragon Wall Bridge, team four staff. They did they actually, if they're quite actually great voice act to the war, actually, I think even for them. So you about team full start. I watched a lot of a bridge back in the day. But the thing is, especially with the American voices in Anime, is it feels like it's really hard to put across seriousness. They just don't Sunday get that when this comedy, it works, works for comedy. But yeah, so don't I agree about them. I dubbed Comedy can work very, very well if you adapt the jokes. Well, obviously, for the most part you want Japanese. You want a Japanese voice because it just kind of flows yeah, now, Christ, that's what on, because I know what yea. But yeah, he gets to come on. You Guy used to come on the collegion, right. Yeah, Oh, yeah, yea, and Nickelodeon, one of the yeah, and just like that, Chris is, she got that spot on, like it. Just can't take it seriously, like ever. Ready see dramatic seems. Are Ego or you can hear is Yugi. Oh it's like this. It's I'm not meant to be laughing right now. Is that really serious? And you go over to the Japanese on you're like, Oh's actually quite deep. You know, you get them says. It's just the tone away come across. It can come across is so different. Yeah, it's the way. It's the way anime is interpreted by a lot of American voice actors. I think it's getting better. That's time is progressing. As animals getting bigger in the West. is going to be better. If you watch, if you watch the older the older dubs, they're literally just getting any something, any to just come here. You want a voice acting Gig, I give you fifty quid. That's what it feels like, because it was so bad. I've seen some old old doves and they are horrendous to a point where you think, why have they got this person dead? Fifty number those, those are visibly was that video game, and I think it was puzzle quest, where the guy who was in charge of doing the was change, of changing all the voices and all the translations from Japanese to English, got his son and daughter to voice some of the characters in the game and it is some of the worst voice, I say, you'll ever hear. It is so bad. Like you, I think all three of US could legitimately do a better job, if that bad for ourselves. Yeah, and just last would ask you guys think that if British is if more British voices we use in voice acting, if it will be received as well as the American ones? I honestly think from what I've seen, British voices work a lot better at conveying certain emotions. So I find that comedy is a bit different. I think that American voices are generally a bit better doing comedy, whereas British voices are a bit more serious. And when it comes to satire and like cool jokes, I think the British voice works well, but in terms of general fun...

...and General Lass, and especially for that team demographic anime usually appeals to. The American voice is a little bit better for that. I so just imagine dragon ball with English voices and see if it will. Guy Very serious. Jungle Z isn't serious enough to warrant let me but geus voice is Kinda British and he's the friezes. One Freezer could work with a British accent. I think so when you look at that, because I think they change's voice. That against yeah, he did some of it. More you listen to the G as accent freezes accent. Those are two of the most serious characters in the TV show and I don't think there's a coincidence that they both have British same. Oh yeah, yes, tilt way I talked about adds. Is I actually British sounding? Are they sounding? Yeah, always been a British sounding and so we shot and free says they freezers. They did change. It wasn't his first back in the two fathers and they change the voice ups and then it is so is a bit more because you can see it from like the jungle, super movies etc. You know the rest of his savants. The rest are like very Americanized American voices. So, yeah, from what I remember anyway, I haven't seen much of the super again, but should we can wrap it up this super I don't know if you, I mean, give it a chance here. It is not anything it it is for. Is this all right? For? It is to be fair. You know, she jngles. Just finally, just watch it to laugh at him. Just beams, go bur that's right.
