Ryan Davis has died.

It happened on July 3rd, merely days after his wedding.

No cause of death has been given.

This is so sad.

So all those jokes made about Ryan looking like he was about to collapse in the Kinect Quick Looks actually came true? Oh jeez, talk about a "Funny Aneurysm" Moment.

RIP Ryan Davis, even if I didn't always see eye to eye with him in a lot of things.

I think Ryan was married a few months ago. It's still really tragic but at least he managed to hit that milestone.

No, he was married the Saturday before he died.

He literally died on his honey moon and that makes this all the more tragic.

WHAT. THE. FUCK.

...I...I am honestly stunned. I can't freaking believe this.

RIP.

I'm really amazed by the outpouring of support from so many people in the industry, within the GB site, and in many other places since his death. The news item that was posted on GB has over 6000 comments, and quite a few people in the industry have made their tribute videos for the guy, such as Harmonix and The Cynical Brit, to name a few.

Ryan was easily one of the biggest names in Games Journalism. It's hard to get better coverage than Giant Bomb and he was integral to the growth of the site, not too mention he was the face of the site and in general the reason it was run so well.

I just want to ask: what do you guys think of Patrick Klepek the news guy? He's the one who posts quite a few interviews, weekly Worth Readings / Watchings, and the occasional controversial feminism-leaning article. That last one has been a large point of contention within the visitor base for a long time, along with the perception that Patrick keeps on sneaking in his liberal political views in many of the opinion pieces he makes.

I gotta say: I really like how all their recent videos on their site run at 60 fps for games that normally run at it. Gives me a much better idea of how the game runs normally than watching it on Youtube.

Vinny's movin' to New York

On one hand, seeing them finally getting this expansion plan underway is cool. On the other hand, man, am I gonna miss him regularly interacting with the SF crew. He brought a whole lot of optimism and goofiness to them.

Can't believe I missed this.

The day before New Year's Eve last year, Patrick Klepek has announced that he has officially left Giant Bomb after 4 years of working for them.

I wish him well in his future endeavors. Despite some of my disagreements with him, I've come to like him as the news guy and even as someone who puts out good editorials from time to time. He has most certainly left his mark on this site, and he'll surely be missed.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
