I thought at first this was some kind of sick joke. As with many celebrities and figures, I always thought Ryan to be kind of...there. I'm not a regular visitor of Giantbomb, but every so often I'll survey over the Quick Looks and the news stuff. It's strange to think that something so core to gaming to me - the whole of the crew of Giantbomb, not just Ryan - is gone. Dave put it in far better words than I ever can. That's how Ryan should be remembered, let's be honest. He may have been full of pearls of wisdom, but you would probably only find them after too many drinks.


Rest in peace, duder.

The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age. A critique I particularly remember is that there was completely no point behind the multiplayer - you might as well be handing controllers around. But it was enough for me and my brother to play through that game and love it

I've just got the game, but by god does Shazam seem ridiculous. His power trait gives him ludicrous damage, he has a low and high throw (King, anyone?) that he can combo after after burning one meter, his jumping light and medium attacks are insane - both cross up ridiculously well (even his ass his a ridiculous hitbox on his medium attack), with his medium attack being great to combo after and his light attack, with only 2 frames of hit advantage, can make some mental mind-games with his grabs. His damage seems decent (though I haven't seen other characters damage), and his teleport will make zoning much easier. Main right here!

I mean, you never know. Maybe the guys who left would have gone in, fed the enemy team, and then taken your Couriers to your team fights thinking they were controlling themselves. Teammates can be a hindrance!

Seriously though, it's pretty unfair for you, dude. At least it's better than in League, where they just don't recognise whether somebody has completely disconnected or not.

I'm a guy who mains support with a bit of jungle on the side. I've always loved Leona (Third character I ever played, behind Yorick and Ashe in the tutorial) because of the active aggression, and Taric for a more passive aggressive lane. Jungling is more fun unless you've got a good (or premade) carry botlane, and as I love characters who are really good but under-repped, Nautilus is probably my most surprisingly favourite champ to play. Or, you know, under-rated, under-played champs like Lee Sin.

My brother had written a thesis on violence and exposure to violent media - from what I know, the general conclusion is that sometimes, some violent media will affect some people. That's as vague as it gets, and this applies to all violent media, and the amount of violence needn't be Mortal Kombat, it can easily be PowerPuff Girls violence and some people will still sometimes get affected. You know what else might rouse violence in people, other than video games? Burning.

@Demoskinos: Fiber? I don't know, we never should have accepted a dinner party invitation to @crusader8463's house in the first place.

This made me laugh so hard.

As a first off, the game feels so awesome. Secondly, Radec.

I swear to God I was just watching Twin Peaks before reading this.

It's too odd to be a coincidence.

Must have seen it in the coffee.

Because we all know that resolution makes the game.

If you guys wanna miss out on a great game because it isn't pretty enough for you, more power to ya.

I agree with the point, but the game is still pretty!
