No, Ryan was just as much a part of the GameSpot family as any other staff member.

Most Giant Bomb editors were GS editors/writers so I guess a few people here would know him.

Not sure but it was definitely something sudden. Apparently he passed away on July 3rd and if you go look at his twitter account (@taswell) he was tweeting throughout that day making jokes and whatnot. It seemed like nothing was wrong.

Makes me think heart attack or car wreck, but I don't want to assume anything.

I always enjoyed reading his content on Giantbomb and listening to him on the Bombcast. So sad with the recent marriage. He will be missed. RIP.

This is terrible. Just from listening to the Bombcast, these guys were a tight-knit group of friends. It's like a band member leaving the group... I half expect GB to pack it up and start fresh because the dynamic just won't be the same. Especially with the way they did things, things don't just "go on." Not with a loss that big. 

Thanks, Ryan.

Jesus, that's shocking. I love Giant Bomb. He was always great. My thoughts go out to his family and the rest of the Giant Bomb crew. RIP.

I remember his Twitter feed on the days leading up to his death. On vacation after getting married, joyous and perhaps having too much fun.

Him and Jeff where my favorite writers here at GameSpot and were the sole reasons I loved GiantBomb so much. This is so, so f*cking sad. For someone I've never even met before, this is devastating.
