Sad news. It almost seems unreal to me, having recieved the email notification for the co-optional this very same day.
His status update not even a month ago, although foreshadowing, had me hoping that it would go on for a few more months at least... and of course there was always the naive hope of a miracle but I should know better.
He has been an inspiration and a great advocate for consumers of video games. May he rest in peace.

I honestly grew to dislike him years ago when he began showing contempt for his audience and treating them like numbers rather than people, but he very much deserved none of this.I still have some respect for him till now and it's a shame to see him pass. hope he and his family finds his peace.

Is there any way to send condolences to his family?

I highly doubt they will, but I hope blizzard makes his starcraft 2 voice pack free.

Alternatively, divert all proceeds from it to his family (or the cancer research organization of his family's choice).

I was watching Limealicious when the news broke. As you can imagine, I'm rather upset about it. :( I mean, I hardly knew the guy, but I knew of him. I guess he had that effect on people.

Just found this out via SidAlpha on YT. It was on the cards following his announcement on Reddit the other week, but it's still no less of a shock.

Rest in peace, mate. Hopefully Heaven has all of the curry splits you can eat.

Had expected this for a few months now, after he announced he had end-stage cancer. Sad to hear. :(

I knew he didn't have long to live when he first announced his condition, but still, he managed to hold out for a few more years when others would have expected months.
Were it not for his reviews, I probably would not have gotten the Wolfenstein and DOOM reboots. RIP.
