Today, we launch Episode 1 of Pause Resume Presents with a voice actor that, for some strange reason, always struck a chord with me.

Back in the winter of 2000, I was glued to my Dreamcast for hours at a time listening to a man say such iconic catchphrases as: “Do you know where I can find some sailors?” “Did you see a black car?” And my personal favourite: “Let’s get sweaty”. 

At the time, having a fully-voiced cast of characters in a video game was a rarity, as we were so used to reading lengthy text with often terrible translation from its Japanese origins.  With Shenmue, we got something a bit different.  And it’s because of those long winter days and nights that I spent playing as Ryo Hazuki when I was 15 years old that I fell in love with video games, with that in mind, I’m delighted to say that Pause Resume Presents’ first guest, is the man who brought a cult legend to life.
