Sarah is annoyingly voiced. Kittycat (yes, I renamed her) is annoyingly voiced.

Welch has to die in a fucking fire, like NOW.

Edge, Bacchus and Reimi are decently VA'ed, though, and Faize isn't that bad.

I thought for almost 10 hours that Bacchus was voiced by Brent Spiner pitching his voice a bit deeply, until I looked it up.

I haven't reached Sarah yet, I just ran into Merry/the kitty.

Welch... yeah, annoying voice, although the PAs that involve her are hilarious. XD

Agreed on Edge, Bacchus and Reimi and Faize, and myself, I thought Bacchus was the guy that did Ziggy in Xenosaga (which, looking it up, would be Richard Epcar). Huh.

Lym... well, Lym isn't *bad* voice acting since it fits how her personality is supposed to be, it just makes we want to stab my eardrums out after a while. (Although at least it's not as bad as one of the NPCs in Star Ocean: Til the End of Time, if you played that.)

Lym's voice isn't all that annoying, 'kay. It's just her word choice, 'kay, that gets on my nerves after about 15 seconds, 'kay. Plus the fact, 'kay, that she's *theoretically* 15, 'kay, yet looks and acts around 6, 'kay.

Okay, yes, Sarah has an ANNOYING VOICE. (I don't even have her in my party, just met her once, and gahhhhh *twitch*)

I don't really mind Merry's voice. Then again, I guess I'm kinda used to the catgirl thing in general.

Also: How goddamn long am I gonna have to put up with Emo!Edge? I mean, yeah, he has a good reason, but still. -_-

I'm a couple of hours ahead of you, and he is emo'ing out as we speak, but he may be purging it. We shall see.

OK, update: Purgatorium? A bitch to get through. Good chunk of story, though.

*whimper*

I just got a certain person back in my party after a Certain Incident, and am now going to look for ANOTHER certain person. If that tells you where I am.

And now I must get some sleep, and put down the controller for a bit. Noooes!

Oh Dear God. Um, I just had the 8th character join. You've met them already.

Help me. A .45 hispeed lead injection may just do the trick.

Blah, you're pulling way far ahead of me... I haven't even hit the Purgatorium except to poke around and say "oh hey, we can't get in!" because I keep getting sidetracked by item creation, trying to do quests, etc.

I've gotten a LOT of IC and quests out of the way, but I've been pushing the storylinew harder than I should. I'm somewhat underlevelled now, so I'm about to go grind for several hours. Just finished the 5th boss in my mid-40s, which is an easy fight if you blindside, impossible otherwise.

Whee, just finished the Purgatorium. Or at least, I killed the final boss and watched the cutscene after, then saved just outside the door (and am letting my system idle for a few while I get tea, etc)... hopefully that means I'm done with it, except climbing back out.

Actually I didn't think it was that bad, although that might've been because I was expecting worse, after your warning. The mothership though... gyah. Someone stab that designer through the heart with a spoon, please. XD

The layout wasn't bad once you figured out the statue thing, but the boss fight was tough -- and the dialogue worse.

(You are rapidly approaching a lengthy cutscene, BTW. Bring a sandwich. Or five.)

Long Cutscene is Long!

But worth it. Soooo worth it. I'll... yeah, I'll be in my bunk.

Annnnnd, there's another longass cutscene, but this one was ... less juvenile overall? I've just hit the standard Star Ocean "OK, final dungeon, here's a teleporter, go do all your sidequests and grinding" position. Definitely fun.
