The lights are on
As the voice of the male Commander Shepard in the Mass Effect trilogy, Mark Meer has already saved the universe. If that's not enough, the voiceover artist has now picked up the prestigious Edmontonian of the Year Award.
You can see a brief interview with Meer over here, where he briefly talks about the award and some of the competition he was up against. Meer credits his win on the enthusiasm that gamers have for voting in online polls.
In addition to providing voices for the Mass Effect series, Meer has worked on games including Dragon Age: Origins and Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition. He's also a cast member on Super Channel's Tiny Plastic Men in Canada, which is where the image above is from.
