I knew the day would come when people would be leaving Giant Bomb, but now that it's hear idk what to think. The place is not going to be the same. I feel like none of the folks being mixed and matched in this set up have a chemistry I enjoy together but time will tell I guess. I have no idea what the bombcast is going to be like now. Brad and Drew never talk so I guess it's just going to be Jeff talking to himself.

Anywho. Best of luck Vinny. Gotta do what's right for you and your family and I wish ya all the best. But on a selfish note, I wish you were staying.

I hope so as Twitch is hot garbage right now. The fact that most archives are only watchable at 720p+ is insane to me. There are more people out there that can only watch 480p then those that can watch 720p. It's ass backwards that they don't start people at a lower resolution and then allow higher later. There's several people I want to watch, but because of the above mentioned I can't. So if Google buying them makes that happen then I'm all for it.

I don't really know what to post, since I only first heard about anyone at GB quite recently and all......I read about this incident on Giant Bombs Wikipedia page, but I never realized how much people thought of this guy...just that thought alone makes me feel sad about this :(

I know it's probably disrespectful to ask this, and I apologize if it is, but I am just wondering.... why, or uhm..how did he...you know...what caused his unfortunate passing?

It was never really made public knowledge to respect family wishes.

His father said it was sleep apnea.

I believe a part of his brain went pop while sleeping due to complications from his sleep apnea. He had been really stressed with his wedding and I remember them talking about how crazy hot it was leading up to it and on his wedding day. All that just lead to it happening a few days after he got married.

I was diagnosed with sleep apnea a few months before Ryan's passing so it hit extra hard for me. Especially because I'm close to his age and in worse shape then he was. So when I go to bed at night, especially after a very hard few days, I wonder if I will wake up the next morning.

I don't care what bits dangle between a persons legs. I just want them to be well informed, able to talk intelligently, clearly, and be humorous/entertaining since that's why we are all here. If they can be pretty and nice to look at then that's a nice bonus, but it's the least important thing on the list.

Tempted to as the game looks good enough, and I really want the TF2 items, but full price for a game like that just seems crazy to me. I don't have that kind of money to waste.

@alistercat: I tried searching around, and a few things I found in random old forum threads, but nothing seemed to work despite having 16 GB of ram. Wish ya luck finding help. I tried for an hour but nothing would load.

I was dead when they dropped me in the water as I can't swim. :(
