As Jeff Winger once famously said, “This is the blow-off class of the semester.” All you have to do is listen as Warren, Terrell, and Eric ring in the new year with a new style. They have done away with the news section replaced it with 3 questions to discuss. What is the state of Final Fantasy going forward?, What is a casual gamer?, and When has a sequel gone too far?. All you have to do is listen and you get full credit for the course.

Lisa Ortiz is an American theatre and voice actress, as well as voice director, best known for her roles inEnglish anime adaptations. She is perhaps best known for the roles of the high-elf Deedlit in Record of Lodoss War, Lina Inverse inSlayers, Oshawatt in Pokémon and Tony Tony Chopper in the 4Kids dub of One Piece. Her extensive résumé also includes the role of Amy Rose in Sonic X, and Serenity Wheeler in Yu-Gi-Oh!. She has voiced Amy Rose in the Sonic the Hedgehog series of video games from Shadow the Hedgehog to 2010, as the successor to voice actress Jennifer Douillard, who voiced the character fromSonic Adventure to Sonic Advance 3. Living in New York City and frequently meeting people who speak other languages, Ortiz helps in creating the dialect voices for which she is well recognized. Ortiz holds a BFA in theatre from Hofstra University. She has appeared in titles for NYAV Post, 4Kids Entertainment, Central Park Media, Funimation Entertainment, Headline Studios, TAJ Productions, and DuArt Film and Video. At the 2002 Katsucon in National Harbor, Maryland, Lisa admitted that her start in voice overs came from her brother stealing her car, which led to series of adventures that led her to meeting a friend to retrieve the car, who then invited her to a casting call for Record of Lodoss War.
