Two reasons why Shenmue's English VA rocked
His accent definitely
sounds like the weirdest mixture of Indian, Japanese and Jamaican. Or as I like to say, he sounds like an Indian man doing an impression of a Japanese man who wishes he was Jamaican (the Jamaican tones sounding the least authentic of the three). Still, I always thought it fitted his crazy personality and appearance quite well. Tom even looks quite like he's an Indian guy with dreads.....so maybe it was all deliberate and he's really a very skillful VA after all
We need to get that guy on the forum.
One tells him to go "Jerk off", and the other one calls him a "twit" (!) and threatens to "slap him silly". I think Shenmue is the only game ever to have the word twit in it! But boy, these Japanese school girls aint nothing like in the anime, they're way more thuggish
