Ben Feldman and Lauren Ash shares the secrets to surviving life inside their giant set.

In an exclusive sneak peek clip, Dina (Lauren Ash) takes charge in the staff meeting, informing the team that "Barbarian's Gate 3" has arrived and a line of armor-clad customers has formed outside of the store. Amy (Ferrera) then asks to put a copy aside, revealing that she too is a gamer.

When questioned about her hobby, she doubles down on her fandom, rationalizing that video games are a great way to relieve stress. But as with any exchange between the Cloud 9 employees, things quickly go from somewhat normal to totally strange. Check out the clip below:
