Your curiosity is just an illusion.
Curiosity is rarely an illusion, since it's a direct feeling. If you're feeling curious, it's not an illusion, you're actually. If you're not, there is not even an illusion.
an IDEAL could be an illusion, but that would require any quality statement about the voice acting to be made that could be construed as an ideal
Look, this discussion is going in circles and getting some people riled up, so let me say this straight up. Japanese professional voice actors demand huge paychecks. This is because they are generally really freaking good at their jobs
We can't afford the professional voice work, and we don't think enough people could afford to pay for the professional voice work package or would feel the price increase would be worth it. It is a decision based on economic realities, so if you want to talk about how nice it would be if we could do it, or how it's personally worth it to you, great; it's still not happening, I'm afraid. You're welcome to talk about it and dream about a world where we have infinite money to throw at projects to include every little thing; I wish we did, too.
Conversely, we'd really love to do it if it WAS at all reasonable, since as I said Japanese pro actors are paid for (mostly) good reasons. IF it was something we could do, it would be a legitimately good thing to have. So you also don't need to talk about how you're not missing anything, etc., etc., because in general it would be nice to have. I don't view it as critical, since the original version (and thus the game) was not built around it, but that doesn't mean it's pointless.
We'd also love to produce a full dub track using properly-contracted Voice Actor's Guild of America voice actors, who as a general rule of thumb are ALSO really good at their jobs and, by and large, paid very well for good reasons; just because we aren't doing it, doesn't mean it wouldn't be a good thing to do. It just means we can't do it, because we believe the best value proposition* for our customers is that we don't have to sell all our worldly belongings and our freedom to pay voice actor fees, regardless of which language the voice actor is talking in.
That way, we can translate more games.
Now, play nice and don't make me lock this thread or I swear we are turning this car around RIGHT HERE and driving back to Alabama
and then you would be in Alabama, what then, huh
