Bethesda have created a tribute for their recently deceased co-worker, and have placed it on homepage for The Elder Scrolls.
Fantastic tribute by Bethesda, I was expecting something smaller but that is really extensive. I think I'll spend a wee while checking it out. Just read it, he sounds like he was a funny guy and a driving force behind the looks Fallout 3 and Skyrim (judging from concept art). My favourite tributes are: "As an aside, my favorite story Adam told me was that he got fired as an erotic cake decorator for making the cakes TOO erotic. He wasn’t kidding." and "I'll never forget seeing Adam outside walking the grounds. He used to say he was "scouting for ninjas.""
Oh god why all the good, talented people die lately?
Well who knows? :\
@person who disagreed... Do you know it? Would you mind sharing it with your colleagues?
He didn't die..... "a tribute for their recently diseased co-worker" /s lol, oh geez. If you're going to post a serious article, do some better proofreading on the ONE sentence you put for the summary. Or else just stick to copy-pasting one from the article.
Kudos to Bethesda for that, that's really neat. And not a plug in sight.
Deceased?? Tribute to??
Oh... Okay then, I guess calling the guy diseased IS in fact a fitting tribute for him. My bad.
How did he die?
Ah no... My condolences to Bethesda. I really hope this won't have a negative effect on the art style of these franchises ...
Oh know, god forbid their game art is hurt. Wow someone dies and all you can think about is future game artwork. Your condolences to Bethesda? WTF about this guys family, F*ck Bethesda what about the guy that died but all you can think about is a damn game. Gotta love the lack of Humanity in people. At least Bethesda is not as inhuman as you. Pretty sure the first thing they thought about was not how this will affect future game art or how fast can they replace him.
wow...taking it too far much? jesus. Im pretty sure this guy also feels for Adam and his family it just didn't come out that way.
first steve jobs, now this artist... Cancer seems to strike everywhere these days...
yh it is really disheartening o see someone so young die from it. Cancer is a scary thing and ive got a feeling wifi and all these faster 3g etc play a far bigger role in cancer than most think
didnt they recently find a cure for cancer? it had like a 95% success rate? wtf is taking them so long to standardize it? or maybe its still too experimental? its cured 5 out of the 5 people they tried it on. they need to hurry up, we lose so many good people because of it
Tanir Cancer is very widespread in its forms so I don't think that it would be possible to find a single cure for cancer as a whole and I haven't been able to spot yet what sort of cancer killed him.
cancer has many different forms attacks different parts of the body and changes case by case some can be docile and easy to treat while others can be aggressive and weaken people. To standardize a cure would be difficult maybe it is difficult or maybe heartless mofos enjoy exploiting those who are afflicted with it with expensive treatment and are stonewalling it. It would be nice if more preventative stuff was worked out so information could be spread as wide as possible and quickly
@Tanir only a few forms of cancer are vulnerable to things like sugar/fructose deprivation. Most of the rest are not "curable", just treatable. If you ever do get cancer, stay away from carbs, though -- especially sugar. Some types of cancer cells need that quick energy to replicate.
@Tanir You're probably thinking of intravenous Vitamin C. It's been yielding positive results as of late, but it isn't a definite cure.
Don't forget about Andy Whitfield(spartacus)either. Dude was only in his mid 30s.
Yeah my grandma, my grandpa's sister and a friend died from cancer last year. I guess cancer is the new plague that's going to wipe a good amount of humans off the planet. Just look at how much radiation we are exposed to with cellphones and all this junk. Hope I'm wrong though.
Nice to see, I know my boss wouldn't do anything like this for me.
Wow, he was truely talented. I feel for his family. I had a sudden lost in my family 2 weeks ago, and we're still trying to deal with it.
Sorry to hear that man.
Thanks for the condolence.
"Recently diseased"? N4G has no journalistic standards...
3 ppl are trolling here and giving disagress to every comment? Rest in peace
Why do i get the feeling that it's buthurt PS3 fanboys? Seriously a very talented man just died young, they need to get over themselves.
You should be ashamed of yourself for trying to turn this discussion into a console warz offensive.
every topic has people just disagreeing with everything, dont worry too much about it. hate to hear news like this, my condolences to his friends and family.
Diseased? Whilst I'm sure that was unintentionally please correct that, it is quite disrespectful. Bethesda did a fantastic job of the tribute, it was from the heart, thoughtful, kind and more importantly discussed the positives of his character and the funny times. Being someone of who is currently studying Art at college and being a huge gaming fan, I consider his work to be truly sublime. Being involved in the artistic aspect of a video game is becoming a more crucial role, and, with games developed by Bethesda, the art goes a long way to crafting the beautiful landscapes of their worlds, and therefor, for every Elder Scrolls fan, every Fallout fan and more, I say thank you. At the disagreers, go back to uselessly arguing over Video Game Consoles, this article is about a man who actually contributed to the industry, rather than destroying it.
Really sorry about the error, how do I fix it. I went through the tutorials and I cannot find any of the 'fix now' links that it talks about. http://n4g.com/site/newstut...
Poor man I wish him peace. Thank you Bethesda
Rest In Peace. You gave us some amazing games, its just a shame you had to go so early in your life :(
Rest in peace,may God grant you peace and eternal rest. It saddens me when a talented person like this guy leave this world because today is pretty hard to see true talent,much strength to his family and everyone that is either fighting any decease,love someone who is or the families of those who unfortunately lost the battle.
