I'm not sure why Cara Ellison is garnering so much love for this position. She seems cool but I'm not sure it would be a good fit.

Sounds like people just want GB to hire a woman and she's a female. Just hire the best person for the job, regardless of gender.

Spot on Jeff. You really hit the nail on the head.

It saddens me that we as a industry have to deal with issues like this. If you don't agree with their work or views, engage in a civil debate or just move on. Why people want to waste their time ruining somebody's life over these views is beyond me.

That was beautiful Patrick.

Stay strong buddy.

Give me Syndicate 2 and that'll be a good E3 for me.

Also another Metro game would be awesome.

I've made the mistake of having both Football Manager and Civ 5 installed at the same time.

Major time consumer.

I remember hearing that Essex had the highest teenage pregnancy rate in England and my hometown (Harlow) had the highest teenage pregnancy rate in Essex.

So, I imagine a Streets of Rage type side scroller where you are fending off young, pregnant youths and chavish yobs.

Bioshock. The final boss battle was just laugh out loud terrible. It was completely out of tune with the rest of the game.

I first three quarters of Dishonored were outstanding, until you are captured by Daud and the game descends into a bit of a mess.

I'll be pouring one out for Ryan tonight. This has genuinely brought me to tears.

For all these years I feel like he was a friend to all of us. Someone who allowed us to relax and enjoy the industry we love more than anyone else. I can't think of a personality death that will rock the gaming world more than Ryan Davis's and I can't think of someone who will have such a wonderful impact that Ryan had on the industry.

I really will miss hearing his voice and seeing his face every week. My heart goes out to all the Giant Bomb staff, his family and friends.

This has actually shocked me to my core. RIP Ryan :(
