    I think I remember that guy on another site...He made topics like, "HippyFreak's Wii Iso Only Thread" or something like that. May he move to the lightside now.

    may he rest in peace, one of the greatest Wii ISO uploaders.

    Some of you people need to learn a thing called "respect", at least for those who aren't alive anymore... just coz you didn't know him doesn't mean you gotta be rude.

    RIP, I didn't know you well, but I wish I did. We'll miss you forever. [​IMG]

    He was a moderator on a pirate site. We can't link to him.

    HippyFreak is known (by me, at least) as the compiler of one of the most extensive collections of Wii ISO files on the internet. He was presumably a pretty cool guy, and I'm positive his loss will break the hearts of his friends, family, and the beneficiaries of his hard work and commitment.

    Regardless of your stance on piracy, a loss of a committed member of the scene is one that should be mourned. Goodbye and good luck, HippyFreak. [​IMG]

    RIP some guy i had no idea existed, had zero effect upon me, and his passing won't make any difference to me at all.

    It's always a shame when someone dies before their time, but this isn't really news beyond the site where he posted uploads. Are there really that few Wii uploaders or did he do something special?

    He will be greatly missed.
    He was a legend in the Wii Iso community.
    Keep on trucking my brother...

    Funny, that was my first guess too.

    Not heard of him myself, though it will clearly take its toll on those who did.
