JonTron in Project Ukelele

Postby EekumBokum202 » Sun Mar 15, 2015 1:51 am

So apparently, someone (or maybe more) wants to hear Jon Jafari, or JonTron, voice a character in Project Ukelele. Chris Sutherland may have to fight him for a voice though...

If you don't know who JonTron is... Time to familiarize yourself with him!

...Now that you've watched all of his videos, who or what would you like to see Jon provide the voice of?

I'm sure many will disagree with me, but I don't think Jontron should have a presence in this game. What's so special about him compared to the thousands of other fans out there who have been waiting for another game like this? I have nothing against the guy at all, I just don't see why he should be given special treatment like this. I'm kind of tired of the youtube culture/e-celeb figures.

I heard his voice cameo in A Hat in Time and it felt too amateurish for me to like. I don't dislike Jon. He's a character that's great for youtube entertainment, but I haven't seen anything to convince me that he's a good voice actor.

But didn't they confirm classic amazing gibberish speak? If there are truly no voices (and I'd be very happy with that), then I'm sure they can make a funny hippo character or something out of Jon. That said, I kinda agree with Dreamin'. Having youtube e-celeb presence in the game wouldn't be at the top of my list.

Whatever it is it should be a bird.... Hey, it's a tropical setting, why not a parrot? That's kinda his shtick.

Although he will forever be a penguin to me.

I prefer him to have a voice in the game. His hilarity and humor would fit directly within the game. Of course he is probably only great for the mumbling which would fit him very well as I don't see him doing a full voice considering he is extremely mature-like when he is. Which would ruin an ESRB Rating or such.

LoL he did not even beat Banjo Kazooie without cheats!! Noooot worthy!!
No seriously I don't care. I enjoy his videos quite a lot, but also I don't
see why a Banjo successor would need his voice. But on the other hand I know
nothing about the bonds between him and the Playtonic guys. Hopefully its not just
because they think they could lure some of his fans by doing so. I think hat would
not be necessary...

I'll give the Playtonic guys the benefit of the doubt and say they never actually watched JonTron's video of Nuts & Bolts. Because when someone rags on your game as earnestly as he did WITHOUT EVEN ATTEMPTING TO PLAY AROUND WITH THE CORE MECHANIC (or...not knowing how to?), I just don't see the honor in rewarding them.

I guess maybe he'll try harder to learn how to play a game if he's personally "invested"? Haha, well no thanks. I'd pick doomkong to voice a Ukulele character before I would JonTron.

I wonder what Doomkong would sound like. Maybe Lemongrab from Adventure Time?

JonTron loved the Conker announcement.

Ugh, no thank you. Cameos like that are always forced.

A lot more people are against this idea than I thought there'd be... I don't see what's wrong with having JonTron in the game. He's been basically the poster fan child representing all our interests in a new Banjo game all these years, why not give him a small part in the game? Besides, he's talented and hilarious as cupcake.

I mean, I wouldn't be actively opposed to it. I just thing that Playtonic should hire real Voice Actors. Unless he has a super bit-part or something.
