I just came across this.  
 
http://soundcloud.com/tony-12-2/claptrap-eulogy-for-michael/s-tmwpd  
  
Michael John Mamaril died of cancer only 22years old. His buddy (Carlo) contacted Gearbox and asked if they could maybe make a short eulogy. And ofcourse they did.

 This shows again how amazing and respectful Gearbox is. Showing they have time for fans. 
 
Edit: And he will be a NPC in Borderlands 2. Well done Gearbox. 
 
Condolences to his family and friends.

Eh, I don't really understand this. I don't really understand funerals though so I guess I'm the bad guy.

They got a guy engaged and now this. Gearbox are some cool dudes that other developers can learn from when it comes to their fans.

If he's an NPC that can die, then that's not very nice.

@Bwast You probably just never lost anyone close to you to say this. One day, when you'll experience these kinds of things, you'll understand.

I'd be totally on board with this if I didn't think that Claptrap is one of the worst things in gaming ever.

Sad to hear about the dude though.

I agree. Really classy and (again) show their respect to fans and the community. You said it best: 1000%

For some reason I find your post incredibly hilarious.

But yes, Gearbox is awesome. More developers should show some love for their fans.
