What games are you playing?
What games are you playing at the moment? I'm in a weird circle between Twilight Princess HD, Stardew Valley and Rise of the Tomb Raider. Each is excellent, and it's super distracting to see so many games out at once. That said I'm not exactly charging through these.

What was your first voice acting job?
