    Just saw this posted on Giantbomb.

    He only got married the weekend before last, no details there of what happened but pretty sad.

    I'd definitely want to get married if I knew I was going to die, so the state would get no inheritance tax.

    It's a sad thing. So young, too. :-(

    Wow yeah he just got married as well. I liked Ryan, I got the impression he held things together on the live streams and especially the E3 stuff. :(

    Life is weird.

    Giantbomb comments not working for me.

    Jesus christ, that's awful. I can't believe it. He sounded so excited about his wedding on their Friday show a couple of weeks ago. :(

    One of the staff members of Giant Bomb but he's been around years.

    I really like the Giant Bombcast and while I know some don't I thought he was an excellent host and he seemed like a guy you'd hang out with.

    Holy shit, as a regular listener I am truly gutted!

    I wonder what happened, he was a big guy but still... :(

    Such a shame, I listen to the bombcast each week and to be honest he was the biggest personality there.

    I didn't know him at all but such a shame to die at 31.
    What did he die of?

    I just fired up Giantbom and saw the article, from the headline I though he had decided to leave. But after reading it was much much worse.

    Only married a week too...

    Terrible, terrible news :(

    I had so much respect for Davis, especially after he told Gamespot to fuck off over how they handled Gertsmann's dismissal. A great video game journalist with integrity is hard to come by these days.

    Did he have health issues? I know he was overweight, but 34 is still way too young.

    RIP

    @AaronTurner

    I listen to the podcast each week too it brightens up what is usually crappy Wednesday in work. The podcast and the giantbomb site won't be the same again. A very sad day for gaming indeed.

    This is just such shitty, shitty news.

    One of the first podcasts i downloaded was the old Gamespot crew of Ryan, Jeff, Brad and Vinnie and been listening ever since.

    RIP big guy.

    Wow, so young. Just married as well.

    He was a rather big guy and seen him out of breath doing nothing in videos so perhaps it was sooner rather than later.

    A damn shame, he seemed like a great guy and I'm a big fan of what they've been doing at Giantbomb. It won't be the same without him.

    I suspect it will probably have had something to do with his size. Even in the past few years he'd gotten noticably larger, and he was a pretty big guy even before that. Sad to think that maybe the partying and festivities of his wedding and honeymoon tipped the balance.



    :(

    Crap, that's horrible. he will be sadly missed.

    Yep gotta agree, could have looked after himself better, but what with the recent wedding and everything thats rough on all concerned.

    RIP dude.

    I'm really sad about this. Been watching / listening to the guy for years and it actually shocked me when I read about it just now. RIP duder :(

    Yea, so sad.

    I'm actually a little bit shocked at how sad I feel about it. I mean I didn't know the guy but I feel like the format of the Bombcast means you get quite a lot of insight into the lives and real personalities of all the guys on there.

    Awful news. All my best to his family and friends.

    RIP

    Really shocking news. I've been listening to GB podcasts for about 4 years now I think and they'll never quite be the same with him gone.

    Aw man, I quite like all those guys over at Giant Bomb and he always seemed like a bit of a dude. RIP.

    Genuinely upset over this. Celebs go all the time and it's sad but having 'sat in' on the Giant Bomb podcasts for many years this almost feels like losing an actual friend.

    RIP Ryan, Giant Bomb will never be the same without you. :(

    RIP

    I wonder why they waited 5 days to tell their listeners/readership?

    Common decency I imagine. Close family/friends would need to have been informed and had personal time to deal with the news before the whole internet were informed.

    Such a young age to die... RIP.
