    So... I was bored, so I made a spectator announcer pack for Skullgirls. I envisioned this as a guy standing behind you at a Skullgirls arcade cabinet, eagerly watching you encounter and demolish each and every one of your opponents.

    Enjoy. Or more accurately, don't regret watching this. I can do only so much in one take.
    First draft (open)

    I'll be trying, trying, and trying again as I keep getting feedback.


    Feedback would be greatly appreciated, unless it's the kind that comes from a microphone.

    Quick thoughts:

    1) You need a better mic :P
    2) Most of the lines don't actually sound like a guy standing behind you at an arcade, both in delivery and writing. It kind of wanders back and forth over the line of trying to sound like a real announcer and a guy at the arcade. Random arcade guys don't have dramatic deliveries and they don't say stuff like "Look at our champion!"

    The mic I have is actually really good. It's just... been dropped a few times. Will keep in mind though.
    Maybe I do, you don't know my life :|

    As for the rest of your advice, I'll work on it; thanks for letting me know! Thinking about it, it is a bit odd...
    Will fix later.

    I don't want to be the guy that is a party pooper but uh yeah Lab Zero isn't touching anything from the fan community especially since the "death of JuJu". Not to mention that this would be extra work for a game that is now released... so me thinks that Mike would say no to that given he wants a break from SG.

    Now the lines are... okay. a little cheesy... and unnatural for someone to say at an arcade cabinet. BUT if you renamed the voice pack to say... "The Glorified Fighter" Then it would fit just fine. Sorta like how Ryu says "The heart lies with in the battle" it's that kind of good cheese, you know?

    I'm aware. I never said I explicitly wanted it in, I just said "Hey, if you want it, take it." I'm doing this for gicks and chiggles more than anything else. (Although, I guess you COULD SkullMod it in if you so wanted... Not that it's worth doing so.)

    In between my last post and this one, I removed all that cheesy stuff. It's not "POWER WITH IDEA IS NOT JUSTICE" bullshit anymore, it's "You realize there's a line now, right?" I mean, if I can think of any delicious ham, I might think about it, but like Cellsai said, it's supposed to be someone behind you at an arcade.
