When the voice of Sonic the Hedgehog speaks, millions listen. Except those who are waiting for Martin Burke to make his triumphant return.
This amazing footage was taken by Retro’s own Skyler “Moonshadow Ben Kalough Catz” King, on assignment at SacAnime, in beautiful Sacramento, California! Among the many guest who showed up was Sega’s own Roger Craig Smith, the current voice of the blue blur. Apparently nice enough to deal with Sonic the Hedgehog fans (or at least hasn’t fully come to terms with what he’s gotten into) he offered his well wishes to not only Moonshadow, but the only Sonic site second to Sega. What site could that be? Protip: It starts with the letter “S.” Playing favorites? I certainly hope so.
I really need to get around to checking out those consoles.
GODDAMMIT DAVID YOU SPELLED MY NAME WRONG.
It’s Skyler with an “e.” 😛
I have no idea what you’re talking about. ^__________^
Whoops, silly me! :B
Well, unlike Jason Griffith, who was pretty much blasted on his first performance and never really let up, Smith had a mostly positive reception, even if it took a little adjusting to a Sonic with slightly more bass.
Still, good luck when dealing with this fanbase. They flip their shit over any little thing and wind up looking like a bunch of morons.
Bullshit that’s not what behindthevoiceactors.com’s Sonic poll says Jason leads by over 800 votes smith trails in 4th
So one poll on a website is indicative of the whole fanbase? Okay. If it makes you sleep better at night.
VOICE ACTORS ARE IMPORTANT IN SONIC GAMES.
No it’s not. Gameplay is.
Sarcasm escapes you.
Oh, thats suppose to be sarcasm? Sorry. ^^; Sadly I’ve seen Sonic fans who will put voice actors above gameplay.
The fanbase is more familiar with Jason while Colors and Free Riders is Roger Craig Smith first games as Sonic.
And honestly even though they were his first games, I think RCS does a way better job as Sonic his first time then what Jason Griffith has done when he first voiced Sonic in Shadow, Sonic Riders and Sonic ’06.
Oh and I checked out the poll. LOL, I dunno how Jason Griffith has such an huge lead above everyone else when there are talented actors like Jaleel White who is way better.
Martin Burke or Jun’ichi Kanemaru please.
Heh, I gotta admit. I wasn’t quite sure about adjusting to a new VA after all this time, but he sounds great and brings the character to life as best as he can. Nice to see he’s having fun and giving a shoutout!
OK, this really made me laugh. The voice was just perfectly timed for the vid!
Check out the consoles…..What? Why!? XD
Hes making fun of the alton tower clips, which were his Sonic voice slowed down.
