I told my lady friend. I think she could understand intellectually if not emotionally. My brother and I talked about it a bit too since we used to share a bedroom and he had heard years of podcasting and became a fan of the site as well after I moved out.
I cried a little bit. It's a little easier to deal with after having dealt with some family And friends dying recently. But I Know from those experiences the big breakdown will come someday out of the blue when I hear some stranger talking about stabbing a dude, uh, uh, uh.
I listened to the crew when they were on gamespot instead of doing homework in high school. Followed them to giantbomb and they helped me get through a crushing breakup in college. Last year hearing Ryan Davis sometimes talk about games on tuuuuesday was the first time I laughed after my father passed away. I'll miss you Ryan, we all will. Rip you wonderful man.
