Wow, just wow. The power of a community can be such beautiful thing sometimes. If you are unaware of Critical Role, It’s an online show produced by Geek and Sundry hosted by Matt Mercer, with an amazing cast of talented geeks, who gather on Twitch to stream their Dungeons & Dragons adventures.
The show airs on twitch.com/geekandsundry, every Thursday 7PM-9PM Pacific Standard Time (That’s 1PM-3PM AEST/2PM-4PM AEDT For Aussie’s), with it’s familiar faces to the gaming world. The cast includes Laura Bailey (Fetch – Infamous Second Son, Kid Trunks – Dragonball Z), her husband Travis Willingham (Reggie – Infamous Second Son, Col. Roy Mustang – Full Metal Alchemist), who are both leading the board in The Chameleon category for the DashGamer Awards. Ashley Johnson, Taliesin Jaffe, Marisha Ray, Orion Acaba, Sam Riegel, and Liam O’Brien are also Party members of the Critical Role crew.
Last night, we launched the 2015 DashGamer Awards, and it’s been an awesome experience so far. Last year we saw Laura Bailey take out The Chameleon Award, and That Character Award. This year, it’s been a war of hilarity, thanks to the #Critters on twitter, showing their support for their favourite Critical Role member. Both Laura and Travis, are well respected in their field of voice acting, voicing many Anime series and characters in Video games for over 15 – 20 years. I personally think that Mr. Willingham is one of the most underrated VA’s out there. But I have had my eye on Critical Role for a while. It’s been more or less a timing thing that I’ve never been able to work around, but after the last 24 hours, I’m going to make it a commitment to make it to the next viewing.
The community of “Critters”, has been nothing but an awesome experience so far, and can’t wait to see it all first hand. Thank you to the Critters on Twitter for making the DashGamer Awards this year awesome, and keep voting! Polls close in just over 24 hours! It’s Travis Vs. Laura! So close! Will Laura take it for a second year? Or will Travis take it out this year? It’s up to you! Don’t forget to vote for our other categories too!
