What’s in a Voice?


I finally got my hands on Nightshade today, and while it seems to lack the luster that Shinobi had, one thing sticks out as a glaring fault in my mind: Hibana’s voice.

You see, Hibana is a badass ninja chick. She slices and dices her way through hordes of ninjas, robots, and Hellspawn without breaking a sweat (or a nail, for that matter). But every time she speaks, I can’t help but think of her as your everyday, typical, stay-at-home mom type. Her voice lacks emotion in almost every situation, and it seems void of the
intensity one expects a ninja to have. It’s almost as if she’s bored with the lines given to her, or lead such a stoic lifestyle that she doesn’t know what anger, sadness, and intensity are.

I’ve been patronizing EB Games for many, many moons, and one thing about them always gets my goat: overpriced pre-owned games. The fact that they’ll give you $3 trade-in credit on a game that they will turn around and resell for $44.95 is hardly a surprise to anybody who has dealt with them before, but dammit, every time I’m exposed to their questionable reselling practices I blow a gasket.
