Alright, everyone. We're ready to start the fourth installment to the Game Ranger series. The story for this one has changed FIVE TIMES, and has been finalized. We're introducing some original characters and bringing in some retro ones for you nostalgia junkies. In addition, we're showing what's been going on with Princess Willow and providing a huge bit of back story for one of the other main characters.
So, what do I need from you? Well, some pretty bad ass voice acting with a clear mic and set in MP3 format. What characters do we need voices for? Well, lucky for you, I've decided to go ahead and release the character list so you know exactly what you're auditioning for (unlike when I did SFvsDBZ).
What YOU will not be expected to do is swear up a storm. The only character that we will have with the obscenities is Ron, as that's his persona in this series.
Okay, so here's the list and how they should sound:
Magus/Janus - (Unfortunately Echnaret is unable to do the voice this time around)
-He should sound a little eccentric and maybe even fruity, but his strengths and frustrations should come through. To get an idea, check out the last scene in the Game Ranger 3 for his voice.
Magus Line Sample:
"Look, Game Ranger, when I told you that you could use the End of Time as your base of operations, I assumed you would actually be doing something besides making a mess of the place." - Janus
Crono - (From Chrono Trigger)
-Does not have a ton of lines, but is important especially for the bonus scene. Should obviously sound somewhat young, but strong. Not a deep voice. Around the age of 18 like in the game.
Crono Line Sample:
"...and tell me why I don't just Luminare this entire place instead?" (frustrated and tired, not angry)
Inky - (From Pacman)
-One of the ghosts, blue, from Pacman! This individual is always angry and strong willed. His voice has a New Jersey accent...like almost over the top New Jersey. Offensive to New Jersey and somewhat cartoonish. Think Super Guido.
Inky Line Sample:
"I swear to fucking god if one more time that douche bag...Eh? Who's this mook?"
Blinky - (From Pacman)
-Another ghost from Pacman? YEP! Blinky is the red ghost in the game. This individual likes to keep his cool and has a strong British accent. Not over the top, but think of the cockney accent of Dick van Dyke's character, Bert, in Mary Poppins.
Blinky Line Samples:
"If you'd just give me a moment, I'd learn that, for Heaven's sake!"
Claude - (From Pacman)
-Claude is the orange ghost from Pacman. This character has a hillbilly accent. NOT Texas, not Oklahoma, not Wyoming, but HILLYBILLY. In other words, think redneck plus dirt farmer. He should be a little slow.
Claude Line Sample:
"Uh, hold on a sister raping minute...did he say something about Princess Willow?"
Pinky - (From Pacman)
-The last ghost in the Pacman game, this one is Female . Pinky will have a cartoon style Valley Girl accent. If you remember, it should be like the commercial in which the girl states, "Like, I don't eat meat, because I'm, like, a vet-inarian!"
Pinky Line Sample:
"I may be, like, a lady, but I swear I will, like, so skull fu...who's this?"
Pacman - (From Pacman)
-The hero, or is he, of the Pacman game. Ever see the old Pacman cartoons? If not, YouTube them. Here's Episode 1. Pacman should sound close to what he does in the cartoon: A mix of Mel Brooks and Woody Allen.
Pacman Line Sample:
"You giant, fat, round whore! What's the meaning of this, you skank!?"
Ms Pacman - (From Ms Pacman)
-Unlike the cartoon version of Ms Pacman on the Pacman Show, this Ms Pacman should sound older, near her 40's, and still have a sexy and sensual sounding voice. The tone of the voice should be soft and seductive as well.
Ms Pacman Line Sample:
"Hey...you don't look like a power pellet. You don't look like one of those ghosts, either. What in the world are you?"
Kinto - (Original character - Dragon Ball Z/Shonen Jump! style game world)
-One of five original characters for this episode. Kinto is the youngest of the five characters, but he isn't a child. Think more around the age of Gohan, 11, when he defeated Cell. He should sound strong, but still have a hint of fear in his voice.
Kinto Line Sample:
"Good! Get out there and kick some ass then!"
Komori - (Original character - Dragon Ball Z/Shonen Jump! style game world)
-FEMALE. The second of the five original characters. She is strong willed with a light voice, but not too soft. She is a warrior after all. She should be a little like Rukia from Bleach (though not the voice, just the persona that comes through) and Asuka from Neon Genesis Evangelion (again, not the voice, just the persona).
Komori Line Sample:
"Maybe the problem is that we're just being too predictable. We try to go one right after the other and all at once...what if we attacked in random pairs?"
Subarashii - (Original character - Dragon Ball Z/Shonen Jump! style game world)
-The joker of the group. He should always sound amused at what's going on, and yet serious at the same time. The tone of his voice should always be nonchalant, but not uncaring.
Subarashii Line Sample:
"That's one of Naruki's strongest attacks. There's no way anyone could have survived that!"
Aku - (Original character - Dragon Ball Z/Shonen Jump! style game world)
-A major bad ass and visual power house, though a little goofy looking, Aku is one of the protagonists. He's over confident and cocky like Nappa from Dragon Ball Z, but he does NOT have the same voice. His voice should be a little deep, but not "4 Kids TV on Saturday" style. Think the original Shredder from Ninja Turtles, but without the "he sounds like a dork" tone.
Aku Line Sample:
"That actually stung! Hey, Washi, what do you think? Should I just destroy them all by myself?"
Wahi - (Original character - Dragon Ball Z/Shonen Jump! style game world)
-Washi is the Aku's leader and one of Broly's generals. A little psychotic, but in complete control. He should sound around 22 years of age and be confident, yet amused. Once he gets going into his fighting frenzy, he should almost sound like he has lost his mind, but very still well spoken enough to be in control of his power.
Aku Line Sample:
"Don't go getting greedy on me, Aku! I want to have some fun with at least one of them, too!"
Naruki - (Original character - Dragon Ball Z/Shonen Jump! style game world)
-This character is taken.
Fat Fairy - (The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past)
-What can I say other than it's the fat fairy from LoZ: ALttP? She is always eating, and should sound like she's a little out of breath just by talking. Male or Female.
Fat Fairy Line Sample:
"I'm a stress eater! *fairy starts chomping* It's hard for me to *fairy starts chomping* stay healthy when I have to worry about you *fairy starts chomping* fucking things up all the time!"
Richter Belmont - (From Castlevania: Rondo of Blood and Castlevania: Nocturne of the Moonlight)
-A major part in the Game Ranger series and an integral part of this episode. He should have a rich, deep voice. As an example, watch Game Ranger 3.
Richter Line Sample:
"As you know, it is the burden of my family to rise against evil time, and time again... From our birth we are trained in combatitive strategies and martial arts. Since my ancestor, Leon, took possession of the whip, known as the Vampire Killer, born of alchemy using the blood of a loved one, the family's fate has been sealed."
Princess Willow - (Original Game Ranger character)
-Princess Willow is the whole reason this entire thing got started. She should sound young, but not like she's a high school freshman or in middle school. Her voice in this episode should be soft, sad, and almost like she's given up hope, but a small bit of hope remains.
Princess Willow Line Sample:
"I see... So even with the summoning ritual interrupted, we were successful. And yet...it seems as though he has lost all the powers that should be granted to him..."
