Title: ~Chikyujin-yo! Desu desu?
Post by: Lukipela on May 12, 2008, 10:16:28 am
As you all know, the Star Control communities are widespread and mighty. Unfortunately, some of them are also quite insular, in the way that news from them travels more slowly. Whether this is because of their secretive nature, or because visiting them tends to break something inside you is up for debate. First and foremost among these is probably frungy_lovers (http://community.livejournal.com/frungylovers/), a lovely livejournal community mostly populated by what could mildly be termed "deviant schoolgirls on speed". It's not a place for weak people. It's a place where both images and fan fiction can scar you badly, unless you have a very special... fondness for Admiral ZEX (and the less well known Subcommander DAX). Thankfully, some of us still visit occasionally, for brief enough intervals to avoid being *seen*. Because I have a feeling that if they *see* you, they will want to *play*.

Er anyhow, the following comes courtesy of frungy_lovers  (http://community.livejournal.com/frungylovers/)member Zarla (I think), who apparently has access to a Japanese version of SC2. Please take a time to listen to this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zyhWnRAXCBQ) and this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K078UU7kiWM), to get and idea of how the SC2 voices were done in Japanese!

I especially like the Utwig.

EDIT: Meep-Eep kindly provided a link to an older thread (http://forum.uqm.stack.nl/index.php?topic=2032.msg29863#msg29863) about this over at UQM. Some interesting legal discussion and screenshots there.

The voice acting seems better than in the English version (well, except the ZFP, they alternate in a silly way and don't quite sound as if they were arguing. And except the Umgah, they were a tad too serious. And the Orz were just... what the heck!? Lucid Orz!?) (Hayes was much better than the English version, for example), but the effects are rather bland (the Arilou didn't sound AT ALL like little green men, for example.). The Utwig sound rather good indeed, although they're still not elderly enough for my taste (in fact they still have a teeny voice).

Hearing the Kzer-Za speak in Japanese was amusing, by the way. And hearing the Chmmr say "Marenumaharemu" instead of "Mmrnmhrm".

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE DRUUGE!!!
The Kohr-Ah are interesting as well, although I think that voice would've fitted the Thraddash better.
Slylandro Probe sounds good too, though the voice synthesizer in the English version has its own special charm.

The Spathi sound too confident.

Syreen: IS THAT THE JAPANESE'S IDEA OF A SEDUCTIVE VOICE!? That's the ugliest hag voice I've ever heard.

Singing Thraddash is beyond words. I miss the growl though.

Also, somebody who knows Japanese: What is that "ware ware wa" thing I keep hearing from various species? Never mind, it apparently is "we".

(Also: FIRST VOTE YAY LOLZ ZOMG)

I'm guessing the Japanese had professional (or at least semi-professional) voice actors, as opposed to just the development team. "Ware ware wa" means "we"? they couldn't make it any longer?

Luki, in Japanese, there's a particle for question marks, ka.

Marenumaharemu" instead of "Mmrnmhrm".

I'm studying Japanese and I know exactly why it's pronounced differently. Japanese sounds are all in pairs of one consonant and one vowel. The only letters that can stand alone are n and the vowels. So they can't say mernemherm, it has to be Meranemaheramu (or maybe you were correct, in that case it would be pronounced [MA-ray-NEW-ma-HA-ray-MOO], which I doubt).

The English team also had a few professionals - the Syreen/VUX/ZFP voice actor (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0928365/) and (maybe, I'm not very sure) the Yehat voice actor. Possibly a few others. Still, mostly amateurs. Although Paul did a pretty good job.

I'm absolutely sure I hear "Marenumaharemu". Note that I'm using IPA though.

It's better acting, but I seem to be hearing the same voice actor over and over for most of them. Best part is the singing Thraddash. That is just awesome.

I just said that in case it did make a difference. It was too late in the evening for me to remember how your transliteration is pronounced. Well, maybe it also was too late in the evening to actually understand what the Chmmr was saying. Or maybe not. It's irrelevant, anyway. Let's not derail the thread.

It's surprising that someone went through the ZEX dialogue years ago and got incredibly turned on by it. I don't think that's what the writers were intending. Even the Talana sex scene came off more as humorous than pornographic.

A seed crystal is a small crystal that you put in a supersaturated solution to create a much larger crystal.  The solute crystalizes around the seed.  (There are other ways to do it, but they're not relevant to my metaphor so I'll ignore them.)

Octal's rather hit the nail on the head.

ZEX's original dialog isn't innately sexy-- but it is extremely interesting. It sparks a seed of "Oh, really? I want to know more about this character!" because he is, like all the aliens in SC, from a Planet of Hats-- but his hat has so very flamboyantly fallen off, and in such an intriguing way, that learning more about him and the VUX is genuinely fun.

The sparked interest leads to a spark of affection-- sure, he tried to kidnap the player character for sex, but he's so charming and humble, and he probably thought it was the only way to fulfill a dream he's had longer than the player character has been alive! You can't really blame a guy with his background, can you?

And the sparked affection turns to a vested interest, and a desire to make the character happy in some way, to see how he'd react if this or that happened, what this Sub-commander DAX fellow is like if he's loyal enough to serve so closely with the xenophilic Admiral, what kind of undesirables fled the mainstream of VUX society to serve under ZEX's protection and acceptance...

And then, sometimes, you get someone who goes, "You know what? I love this character so much, I don't care that he's a xenophilic green-and-scaly possibly amphibious tentacle alien. He's awesome to the point where I what he looks like just kinda adds to my liking! I mean, the VUX aren't that bad looking. And if I met face-to-face with ZEX-- well, I'd probably die, since Redux Worlds have ammonia-methane atmospheres-- but aside from that, he could seduce me and I totally wouldn't fight back."

[/teal deer]

Basically what I'm saying is, his dialog sparks interest which eventually leads to interest in and affection for the character.

...

Of course, in my case, I saw the end result first and worked backwards to playing the game. XD But still.

Under other circumstances I would not be averse to swapping hot biodata with you if you catch my drift. However, my current non-renegotiable contract does not allow for illicit transactions with third parties. And to be honest, It's such a good contract that I have no desire for such things. But i guess we'll always have Cerenkov (Play it again Sam).

Is there something in the text that says he wants to kidnpa him for sex, rather than just freeze him down and put him in the museum next to the frozen shofixti maidens?

Yeah, but having sexual attractions doesn’t necessarily mean he wants full on physical stuff. I mean, he has a whole menagerie of ugly things, because ugly things turn him on. Humans are the ugliest, but I’m sure there are all manner of disgusting creatures holed up down there. And yet he keeps the Shofixti Maidens frozen. If he really was into the touchy feely stuff, he’d have thawed them out long ago to get some rodent action. And what was he going to do with the Beast? I don’t think it’s an ideal candidate for a romantic candlelit dinner. I always figured him for a watcher. He’d just walk around his menagerie, stop in front of whatever caught his fancy and er.. spank the hypnotoad.

And I realize that I’m thinking far too hard and deep about something I’d really rather not be thinking about. So unless you want to argue about whether ZEX likes to watch or do, let’s just return to the original topic shall we?

So.. the Japanese voices. I thought the Druuge were quite good, although unexpected. And I suppose Red is right, the Utwig voice could have been a bit older, even though I think it’s spot on otherwise. It’s a pity Yukki isn’t around anymore, she must have played this version. It’d be fun to hear her take on the English voices.

From the 1998 IRC chat with Toys for Bob (Fwiffo is both Fred Ford and Paul Reiche III here):

<Mephisto_> Fwiffo: Was ZEX gay, or just a little 'confused'?
<Fwiffo> ZEX liked humans. He was into beastiality at the very least.

As to the Shofixti Maidens specifically, I suppose they're simply not ugly enough for ZEX's taste.

  See, he's not only a man, er VUX, of varied and far-ranging sexual tastes, but he's also a collector.  ZEX's Beauty and the Shofixti maidens fill holes in his collection, but they aren't suitable candidates for romance.  A human, however, could conceivably fit into both roles.

And it's quite possible that he just didn't know enough about the technology that held the Maidens in stasis to risk trying to defrost them-- better to be able to look-but-not-touch than to be able to do neither.

As you said, not only would he be able to both collect and romance the Captain, but the Captain's a pretty relaxed, curious guy (or at least, that's the sense I get from the branches I tend towards while playing)-- they could potentially converse in a way nothing else ZEX has collected could, as equally sentient beings. (The Shofixti are self-aware, but they aren't exactly bright or civilized yet.)

And back to voices:

Spathi = cute. ZFP = ADORABLE, I WANT TO KIDNAP THE BLUE ONE AND LET HIM BABBLE AT ME ABOUT FRUNGY, AWW. I enjoy the Yehat voices, especially at the "wareware wa Spathi de wa nai!" part. ZEX has just the right amount of pervy old man going on to make me laugh-in-the-good-way; the VUX in general sound pretty niftily angry and stick-in-the-mud.

Most of the rest don't really pop out at me.

Maybe he did, and they tried to kill him so he thought better of it. :P Or maybe he captured a Shofixti ship, and froze them himself after they tried to kill him and/or themselves. (That would explain why he had them in the first place, at least.)

Hahaha. No need to feel guilty. XD We're insanely prolific, I've never been in a fandom that had such high productivity for so few members.

I always assumed the one in the back was the Fot.  ;D

Human!ZEX is because some of us are insane about AUs 1. one of our beloved members had a dream that all the SC2 aliens got turned human, and we ran with it, or 2. a few of us play in a pan-fandom RP where non-humans get turned into humans, and everyone is told everything they've ever known is a delusion cooked up by their ill minds, but don't worry dear, we're here to help you get better, and don't mind the Silent Hill-esque nighttimes! The latter is characterized by the Captain wielding a skillet of +5 Flail and lots of smiley-face shirts. :B

Shiver: I suppose you're right. When I started doing posts I was going to do some fairly off-topic ones as well and since I have to do polls anyway I figured it'd be a good way to grade them. No one of those have worked out yet though, although one is getting close to fruition. Still, I suspect that if someone doesn't like it they'll say so, rendering the poll pretty pointless anyhow.

ETth: I'm glad you got around to clicking the link this topic is all about old man. And you should be scared by what you see, if you haven't already become tainted.

Alana: I think it's a good thing you have your own place. I think you'd give a few of our members heart attacks if all that was posted here (And FreakyM would start stalking you).

Yeah, I do a lot of surfing at work, and I figured that a slashfic site would be NSFW.  I suppose I'm a LITTLE scared, but mostly delighted that there are active and interested fans that have, ahem, a VERY different take on SC than a lot of us do here.  I suppose I'm pretty tainted, too.   :P

Hmmh, some of these voices were really nice, in my opinion. Particularly the Druuge, ZFP, and the Kohr-Ah.
