EDIT: Maybe not with Jeff seeming to be so stoic and "meh" as usual... Jesus, we are trying to help.

Yeah, because most people are peachy a week after losing their best friend.

Flowers and alcohol, the perfect combination? And see you guys when you are ready to come back. I'm looking forward to more Dota now that it's out.

This was super touching. Good to see you guys back in the office doing a mailbag, but that space at Ryan's desk certainly brings it home to me once more.

On a more videogames note: great to see Cube World on that screen. Really enjoying the alpha so far. Having a good time despite not many features being in yet.

And Drew's "Beer for Dessert" book? Fan-tastic.

@randomhero666: I read his reaction as not appreciating the flowers. It seems that others read it differently, so I'm glad that I am probably wrong.

It's good to see you guys! Looking forward to seeing something on cube world!

It'll help the flowers poo! Thanks, guys. Y'all are made of sterner stuff than most people.

Is an English cookie basically what we call a chocolate chip here in the states?

Crunchies are the best candy bars! Chocolate covered honeycomb (not the cereal) :P

Alex said something on Twitter Wednesday morning about the love and support after the Bombcast from the community being "unbelievable."

Everyone on staff shares pieces of themselves with us on a regular basis, through the podcast or live streams or quick looks. We have no idea how much of that is truly them, but it's never felt like they're trying to put something over on us or just lying about who they are or selling us a line of bullshit. This community exists because of that kind of honesty and respect, and OF COURSE we're going to give it back when the people who are responsible for it are hurting.

Flush the flowers down the toilet.

Sit on them first though!

Only after covering them in water while calling them a floral-piece-of-shit.

...eh, @rorie? ;)

If what I saw after google image searching that is accurate, then yes. That's what we call a cookie.

The look in Jeff's eyes when he says "Let's get drunk" really made me smile, and I could really use that today.

Wow, totally missed that the first time, that's pretty perfect. Any catch a screen grab of that?

Posted by MrFrank88

Oh man with that many flowers near me I would die of happiness. Good to see you guys doing what you always do, one love.

Posted by YOUNGLINK

You guys are awesome. Continue to stay strong through this awful experience.

Posted by Alwaysrun

Am I the only one feeling just a little uneasy about you guys opening a tower of goodies while a vacant desk sits in the background with sympathetic notes and flowers for a far to young man taken in his prime from what I deduce was a love of such indulgences... I love you guys and want you all to be around for a long time for me to enjoy.

This community; I approve of it.

Posted by shoshiaj

This community is amazing! Peace, love, and much thanks from Minnesota.

Posted by KillerKahuna

Good to see the Giant bomb doing its thing carrying the spirit it always had, Ryan would be proud.
Lots of love, all the way from Belgium.

Posted by Kowalczyk

Booze and DnD, that is a pretty good combo.

Great to see all the outpouring of support.

I didn't pick up on Vinny's "i love flowers" joke till Brad mentioned That Game Company.

The past couple of days showed how great this community can collectively be so for the next course of actions, I propose building a 50 story tall golden Ryan statue (with built-in humming bird feeders) and placing it either beside the GameSpot offices or in the middle of Petaluma. Let's make this happen, people!

Kickstart it, like the Robocop one in Detroit. I'd donate possibly at least 100.

I'm happy to see you guys. :)

While I really liked Jeff's voyage through British snacks, this really brought home to me how big a loss Ryan is. I really wish I could give something more back to the people who have been the fulcrum of my entertainment for years. I really hope the T-shirts get reissued or some thing like that so I can do something.

It's good to see you guys back in the office. I know it must be super hard for you guys but I know I'm not the only one who is proud and appreciative of you guys for soldiering through this. It'll get easier. You guys are the best!!

Ryan would approve of that.

Edited by leebmx

Man I wish I could just send them all a big hug - can't imagine how Jeff feels at the moment.

I think of all the deaths in my life and how they affected me and I can't imagine how difficult it must be to go on camera straight afterwards and try and be normal.

You guys are amazing and I love you - keep on keepin' on.

Edited by Shepuisat

Happy to see you Guys. ~Hugs~

And put Philadelphia cheese on the digestives, it's awesome!

Posted by KillerPidgeon

From all this Ryan content that I've been watching over the last few days I keep having to remind myself that we will never get anymore from that magnificent man.

This video just solidified that thought.

Props to all the crew for coming into the office and keeping their chins up, much respect and love for this entire site. Hands down, The. Best. Video Game Coverage Site.

Posted by Supergooder

Beautiful men in a beautiful office. Much love. Keep on keepin on.

Edited by HairyMike87

You guys are awesome! It was nice to see much love from the community these past couple days. It's nice to see the GB crew back in the office even though they must still be hurting. It will get a little better each day and I know these guys will be able to get back to making awesome content.

Edited by AMyggen

Love you guys :)

You guys are the best. Also, Jaffa Cakes are the best.

It makes feel better to see these awesome guys smiling.

Posted by Tupacalypse

Sending in a letter, but I wish I could send a hug. Dammit technology, why have you not fixed that problem by now!

Love you all!

Posted by onyxghost

God bless you guys. And my thoughts and prayers to the departed. Ryan you were one of a kind and a fine, fine entertainer. Hang in there Bomb crew.

Edited by Burb

Glad you guys are back. Best wishes. We will all miss Ryan very much.
