As I'm sure we all heard, Vinny is out for complications regarding the eye.  On an earlier bombcast, he also mentioned that he was seeing spots, and Ryan alluded to his having contracted macular degeneration.  Just thought this would be a good place to post our well wishes.  Vinny can power through color blindness, but plain-old regular blindness might be a little tougher.


FEEL BETTER!!

From one all-day-every-day professional monitor starer to another, GET WELL SOON.

When he was talking about seeing spots I thought "he should really get that checked out"

This is the dumbest piece of advice. Cyborg/mechanical eyes are pimp, just ask Garrett from Thief or Shepard.

#15 Posted by Portis (1285 posts) -

Yeah, I had been thinking about this after a listened to the Bombcast.


I hope all is well (or will be well soon) with him.
#16 Posted by GideonAmos (192 posts) -

Hope you get better soon Vinny! The world still haven't had enough of your video-editing skillz.

He's already dead.

I hear Kano knows a thing or two about ocular replacement. You should get in contact with him.

#20 Posted by fox01313 (5064 posts) -

After having issues with contacts (trapped under eyelid or problems with being allergic to solutions) I know that having any kind of eye problems bite.

Get better soon Vinny!!!!!!

#21 Posted by Master_Funk (728 posts) -

Yeah ,  if it is macular degeneration like they were saying on the bombcast , then there could be increasing complications over time.  Hoping they found it early so they can slow it down.

But you lose your humanity and then Vinny forces everyone in the office to endurance run...Forever. The ultimate endurance.

Unless your only other option is the eyes from an executed psychopath. If that's the case then definitely, DEFINITELY chose the cyborg eyes.

This Vinny you speak of. I enjoy his work.

#26 Posted by Metal_Mills (2980 posts) -

When on the bombast do they talk about it?

Get well, Vinny!

#27 Posted by Daveyo520 (6662 posts) -

May his eyes see into the future.

#28 Posted by GunslingerPanda (4646 posts) -

Get well soon, Vinny!

#29 Posted by GoldenGlove (54 posts) -

Well, I hope he ISN'T reading this. I hope he's staring at a softly lit far-away mountain or something. Getting some ocular relaxation.

#30 Posted by chilibean_3 (1626 posts) -

Get well, get well soon, we want you to get well.

Get well soon Vinny!

#33 Posted by DougQuaid (1273 posts) -

Vinny,


 
Do it.


The internet needs it's Italian Stallion.
#34 Posted by Slaker117 (4835 posts) -

Vinny/Kano photoshop. Get on it. NOW.

#35 Posted by Make_Me_Mad (3023 posts) -

Yeah, after that last Bombcast I did some reading on Macular Degeneration.  Shit sounds serious.  I'm hoping that he can get some kind of treatment for it.

Although if he did have to get cyborg eyes and/or train in India for a few months to edit and produce videos with his other, now heightened senses, that would be okay too.

#36 Posted by Eladren (78 posts) -

if Vinny can climb up a fridge then  he can overcome anything.

#37 Posted by yakov456 (1899 posts) -

It figures the most gentle of the crew has misfortunes. Feel better Vinny!

#38 Posted by AlisterCat (5489 posts) -

I hope it's not too serious. It sucks that the things you love (video production and games) are harming you.

Hopefully this isn't a fortelling of my future, but then again I'm more likely to lose my sight to diabetes so I might as well press my eyeballs against the screen.

Hope you're feeling better soon, matey.

#40 Posted by Mesklinite (804 posts) -

Get well soon Vinny!
#41 Posted by DeeGee (2116 posts) -

I'm honestly surprised at the lack of photoshopped pictures of Vinny with cyborg eyes.

YOU LET ME DOWN, GIANT BOMB </3

#42 Posted by RE_Player1 (7551 posts) -

Yeah get well soon Vinny.

Or the Illusive Man.

*Envisions Vinny with TIM's eyes.

What do you expect, we play ridiculous amounts of videogames without regular breaks, this will happen to you too.

#45 Edited by Blair (2501 posts) -

Get well.  Get well soon.  We hope you to get well.  Someone needs to get this man a cake!

Get better, Vinny.

If he needs eyes, MY EYES ARE READY AND WAITING!

Even though they suck.

#47 Posted by imsh_pl (3295 posts) -

Best wishes Vinny! <3

#49 Posted by ReyGitano (2467 posts) -

We love you Vinny! Hopefully everything will turn out fine, whether that means cyborg eyes or not.

#50 Posted by Jolt92 (1544 posts) -

This makes me sad and worried. I hope you're doing alright Vinny.
