Hm... I will always prefer the Japanese voice, but I'm content with games only having English dubs. Can't they add an option to just turn of voices though? Leave it up to the text? It's like not handhelds ever use voices anyway.

It is nice to see someone explain that though. Hopefully the localization market will not disappear completely!

Yay4sean I think the market's doing better than ever, thankfully! Still, a lot of dissent and rage in the community over these sorts of things.

I've already bought several games XSEED has localized and all of them were alot of fun, people are a bit spoiled with games nowadays due to the big AAA titles and such. Voices aren't everything in games, at least to me.

Thats exactly the way I see it too. I knew that people wanting Japanese voice overs was a thing but I had no idea it was this bad. I never go into a game expecting amazing voice acting in the first place so I'm never disappointed, I'm just happy they get localized at all.

I never understood how people will deny themselves a long awaited game simply because theres no Japanese voices.

Most the time I prefer the japan voice work but I just can't imagine someone would avoid a good *video game* for lack of or just dislike of english VA work.
Mind you everyone has their peeves, so I'm not bashing it but where are these people?
Somewhere out there in the twilight zone?
Doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo.
