As someone who's listened to and followed the bomb crew since their days at Gamespot, this is truly a great loss. He was a voice in the dark landscape that was the video game industry. But more than that, Ryan was a voice that was there for me in a town where I felt like I was an alien. In the words of William Shakespeare, 'And yet, to times of hope, my verse shall stand, praising thy worth, despite his cruel hand.'
Rest in Peace, my friend.
