    I think this was an incredibly kind gesture on Gearbox's part. Its nice to know some Devs still care for their fans

    One more reason to like Gearbox. It's great publicity and a cool easter egg.

    Yeah, they do stuff like that. A while ago they helped a guy propose to his girlfriend (she said yes :yay: ). It's nice of them, and it's also great publicity for the game.

    That was a really nice gesture from Gearbox; it's nice to see developers give back to their fan base.

    It's a good gesture from the developers. Also, I love easter eggs and cameos, +1 to Gearbox.

    This is just amazing on Gearbox's part. It's great to see they care about their fans and are not just in it for Money.

    Hmm. The name of the guy that passed away sounds suspiciously like a Pinoy (or Filipino) name. Awfully nice of Gearbox though.

    Watch them make him a really well-hidden, hard to reach NPC, just like what Nintendo did with Zelda.
