Sincere condolences to the Giant Bomb team and the family and friends of Ryan. This is just... unbelievable.

For what good it'll do, I'll echo the problem with the chat not being visible since the site update. The video plays fine on the live page and on Twitch, it's just that the chat on the live page will not work.
Windows 8 Pro 64-bit
Firefox 20.0 (though again, this has been the case since the site update)
If you have a controller (or certain peripherals) plugged into your machine, unplug it and then launch. I had the same issue when I had my Xbox 360 controller plugged in.
Nine page thread about it on the official PS2 forums: http://forums.station.sony.com/ps2/index.php?threads/windows-8-crashing-issues.38674/
I was around SA when that thread started and watched as Slenderman was "born". The truly frightening thing to me after all this time is that I hadn't even realized it's been THREE years since it started. I have absolutely zero idea where all that time has gone.
I was looking for this as well and came across this: http://www.guildwars2.com/en/legal/content-terms-of-use.html
Note the first part there, specifically the first bullet point of the first question.

@Sekoku: Sorry but you're going to have to get used to this. A lot of companies do this already so I'm not sure why you'd give him any guff for doing it as well.
I know 402 got a lot of crap, some deserved but most of it is unwarranted. Serving as the voice of an entire company or franchise that is as popular as Call of Duty/Modern Warfare is a thankless job. He put a smile on as best he could despite threats, insults, and God knows what else slung at him for being the voice of Infinity Ward and Activision (to a lesser extent). Best of luck to him.
Yup, I'm still playing it and loving it. There's a reason it's making a lot of publications best games ever and most certainly of 2011.
a lot of publications? best game ever? you are clearly not thinking straight.
Seriously. I think a "lot of publications" haven't even considered SWTOR as part of ANY award, let alone for 2011 GOTY since it came out so late in the year. Most are holding it off until the 2012 awards roll around.
I'm still playing, but then again I've only had the game for about 2-3 weeks now. I play with people I've enjoyed playing other games with (not just MMO's either) and I find the stories to be entertaining. In fact, I wish more MMO's did full voice acting throughout and not just leave you hanging with silent NPC's after the first island (looking at you Age of Conan).
I may go for another month of the game, at least. And really, other games and services send out emails similar to the one mentioned in the article. Maybe I'm just remembering incorrectly but Blizzard sends these out sometimes, sometimes with free game time, or offers of a free new pet as part of their various celebrations throughout the year. I can get a new pet if I resubscribe for this very particular period of time? Well alright!
