Nominations for the 18th Annual D.I.C.E awards have been revealed, and critically acclaimed actor and musician, Troy Baker, looks to be set for a successful night. In the “Outstanding Character” category alone, 3 of the 5 nominations are for his performances including Pagan Min (Far Cry 4), Delsin Rowe (inFamous; Second Son), and Talion (Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor).

In 2014, Troy solidified his reputation as one of the gaming industry’s most prolific actors, starring in many of D.I.C.E’s top nominated games. These games include Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor with a total of 9 nominations, including a nomination in the coveted “Game of the Year” category. Far Cry 4 received 7 nominations, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare received 5 and inFamous Second Son received 4.

Baker seems to take it all in stride, responding to the announcement with a shrug and a smile by saying “Just as it takes a village to raise a child, it takes an incredibly strong and talented team to create a character. I’m overjoyed that these teams are being recognized within the industry for their outstanding work, and I’m humbled to have been a part of helping craft these characters.”

In addition to his huge successes as a video game actor, in 2014 Troy released his debut album, Sitting In The Fire featuring the hit single My Religion.

Guests were able to take away fun printed t-shirts with sayings such as “2 Legit 2 Quit” and “As if” as well as old school Mario and Link graphics printed on them. The perfect party favor for a throwback to the 90s bash!

In addition to the interactive activities, attendees enjoyed classic 90s themed munchies such as bagel bites, grilled cheese, mashed potatoes, and chicken skewers.
