Audio Atrocities™ : The Space Adventure Hudson SEGA CD 1994
Well, Hudson went and did it. They took one of my favorite anime characters and translated the 1989 PC-Engine game to the SEGA CD in 1994. Unfortunately, they didn't update the gameplay at all, so a weak game based on a little-known anime ("Cobra") became even crappier 5 years hence. Oh, and they mixed in pretty crappy voice acting, too. Bonus!

The voice cast ranges from bad to awful, although I really like the swagger of the guy who did Cobra's voice. Unfortunately, despite pretty decent acting (well, compared to all the others in this pile of crap), his voice just didn't fit the "look" of the character. But hey, this game's loss is your gain. There's almost too many clips to choose from, so enjoy!

Exhibit A: What is this? It's my ship, the turtle.
Of course, the fact that it's the fastest ship in the galaxy makes this line okay. Rumor has it the ship got its name by poking out of dark stars.

Exhibit B: If I die, will you play Chopin in remembrance of me?
What does this have to do with anything? Talk about stupid dialogue, delivered straight as can be. Chopin? And then talk of memorial dedications? Oooh! Could this be come kind of uber-subtle foreshadowing? Wow...those nutty writers! Always one step ahead.

Exhibit C: What's that sound? It's crazy joe! Those are his footsteps!
Yes, he walks SO distinctively that they can "hear" his footsteps yards away and know he's coming...or...something. Aw, who am I kidding. It's just more crappy dialogue.

The Rest:
Haven't had enough? Here's some additional clips for your amusement:
Clip 4, Clip 5, Clip 6, Clip 7, Clip 8, Clip 9

“My name's Cobra. That's right, I'm the man with nine lives.”
