Oh wow, oh wow, I'm peeing in joy right now. Holy shit, duder.

That was perfect.

I was just thinking about Ryan yesterday with everyone's reactions to Vinny leaving. Perfect timing and a pretty great song. Not entirely up on all the giant bomb references so no clue what the Ghost Fish is though.

@corruptedevil: Would you believe that your comment will forever be the way that I found out about Vinny moving to New York? I thought he was leaving the company for a good minute or so. Much relief now though :D

Thanks peeps.

You did a sweet job there.

I don't understand the ghost fish reference though.

#7 Posted by MaddenedMan (90 posts) -

I can't actually remember what specific video/podcast Ghost Fish was in reference to. It was either a podcast episode or video in which he mentioned hating the ghost fish from Ninja Gaiden.

Amazing work duder! This is why I love the giantbomb community.

Oh man, this is great! You really captured the spirit of an old-west style 'round-the-campfire tale. Really well done!!

#10 Posted by MaddenedMan (90 posts) -

Revelation! Ghost Fish is a reference to this video. In retrospect it might be a MGS4 thing.

Beautiful. Simply amazing. That wonderful Ryan Davis laugh! RIP Ryan. 2013 took too many wonderful souls.

Wish Vin was still in SF office, but that's okay. Family first! :)

The bombcast theme being whistled was the icing on the cake. Nicely done sir.

Fantastic work man! really beautiful stuff. Ryan would have enjoyed this or shit on it for being too mushy. Either way, that was really well done. Kudos

Hauntingly beautiful. Nice work duder.

#32 Posted by charlie_victor_bravo (1238 posts) -

Yo! This to front page. Now!

#33 Posted by Lenny (92 posts) -

This is inspired! What a damm wonderful thing. Reminds me of Ghost Riders in the Sky a bit, which is no bad thing. Similar vibe.

#34 Posted by FinalDasa (2540 posts) -

Great stuff! Thanks for this :)

#35 Posted by CornBREDX (6769 posts) -

This is amazing. It should be on the front page indeed.

Well done.

#36 Posted by c_rakestraw (922 posts) -

Awesome. Incredible work!

#37 Posted by Demoskinos (16510 posts) -

Fucking awesome dude. You nailed it. Usually when people throw in-jokes into stuff it just makes me cringe but you really managed to make a good song first and fit the references in around it.

#38 Edited by hermes (1801 posts) -

Great work, man...

that ending...

#39 Posted by LiquidPrince (16531 posts) -

Damn it Ghost Fish. Awesome song dude, and you chose the perfect picture. Miss ya Ryan.

#40 Posted by Roboculus92 (547 posts) -

That was great!

#41 Posted by Yummylee (23650 posts) -

Mother of God...

Also, first time listening to it gave me a nice bit of the ASMR tingles, so... thanks for that. :P

Bumb because this deserves it.

#43 Edited by Sgtpierceface (720 posts) -

@maddenedman: Today marks the second time I cried from Aryan's passing, the first time being Johnny V at the first PAX after.

Fuckin' bravo man. Funny, fantastic, and just deeply wonderful.

#44 Posted by Spoonman671 (5165 posts) -

I really like the whistled bombcast theme. They should use it for the podcast sometimes.

#45 Posted by Duecenage (258 posts) -

Bonus points for rhyming 'Z' with 'A'! Friggin great work, duder!

Ryan would have been so stoked about this. Would have been nice to wait a month and post it on his anniversary though.

Hope the squad get to see this.

#48 Posted by barberforce (129 posts) -

This is a brillant Tribute to Ryan Davis, cant believe its been almost a year since his passing. LLAP!

#49 Posted by StarvingGamer (9291 posts) -

Awesome job, even if I can't understand a single goddam thing you're saying

#50 Posted by HatKing (6564 posts) -

Dude, you should really cut a cover of the podcast theme and send it in. That has such a badass sound to it, I wouldn't be surprised if they used it, at least for an episode.
