I referring to it being a great movie. All those old Harryhausen flicks are great. I think I'm favorite is 7th Voyage of Sinbad. I couldn't even hazard a guess at how many times I've seen this.

Ryan Davis of Giant Bomb is dead.

I feel no emotion about this right now but I wish he wasn't dead.

This thanksryan.com thing seems pretty accurate to his persona, atleast his public persona. I guess he was always like that.

It's times like this when being immune to human emotion really pays off. It's no secret I'm a pretty big GB fan but all I keep thinking about is how much the Bombcast is going to suck now and how it sucks that he died like fucking months before new consoles came out and that he'll never get to play shit like Watch Dogs and Titanfall. Fucking Saint's Row 4 is like WEEKS away... Dude, that's such a bummer.

That's pretty much exactly how I feel.

I do feel like we lost someone special though. There's no shortage of abrasive videogame assholes but Ryan Davis was on a league of his own where he pulled it off like a rockstar. He never seemed like he was a bad guy or like he was trying to hard, he was just hilarious.

I don't know him or Giant Bomb, but does anyone know how he died? He's super young. Same age and name as me freaks me out.

Well he was overweight and slept with a CPAP. He had just got done going thru the rigamarole of both his wedding and what I'm sure was a lot of sleepless partying. It could have been a number of specific causes that we will probably never know and don't really need to, but it's not hard to put the puzzle pieces together.

Maybe he was electrocuted by one of his arcade cabinets. Those things are dangerous

Did you listen to his last podcast? They were joking about how he almost died from having one of them fall over on them and Jeff said something about taking one of them when he died. Creepeh.

Hiroshi Yamauchi - the guy in charge of Nintendo during its halcyon days - is dead.

And I can't help but be extremely annoyed by the conversation surrounding this event. No internet, he won't be missed. Not truly. He's had nothing to do with Nintendo for a decade. His presence was hardly missed this entire time. Now that he's dead, nothing's changed for gamers. It's false and empty platitudes that aren't an honest show of affection towards a real human being, but a selfish, self-absorbed gesture towards an imagined symbol of their lost youth. I highly doubt the vast majority of terrible fucking nerds out there commenting about how sad it is that he died, have even heard the man's voice before, nevermind actually know the first thing about the dude.

I'm sure the F&F movies will still be fucking rad without him, but they will definitely be slightly less rad.

RIP in peace. :(

Davis found this amazing article lauding the performance of one Sir Paul of Walker's performance in a forthcoming, indie dadporn.

And HOLY SHIT is this some Paul Walker-ass acting!!! :lol:



I'm all for fond remembrance of the deceased, but let's not pretend the man was something that he's not. Bro made Keanu look like Pacino and I LOVED that about him.

But no, all too often it's about the people who really count.
