Gearbox to honor late fan as an NPC in Borderlands 2

Destructoid's Tony Ponce writes, "This morning, we received an email from a Destructoid fan named Carlo who shared a story about his late friend Michael John Mamaril. Last month, Michael passed away due to cancer at the young age of 22. Both were huge Borderlands fans, so Carlo thought a great way to honor his buddy's memory would be to shoot Gearbox Software an email asking for a short eulogy to be read by the game's smart-mouthed robot mascot Claptrap."

That's cool of them to do that for him.

Cancer is a b*tch.

Well, at least they will have an excuse for the stiff animations for once.

On a serious note though, that is a really cool thing for Gearbox to do, much respect for them.

Someone dying is nothing to joke about.

its the internet. your moral values are invalid

@DarkBlood. That's ok because you don't mind, so I'll be sure when you die to make a comment about how your dad pipped you as a kid but for someone you don't know it's not so funny.

DarkBlood2756d ago

fair enough i guess, since it should be obvious to me the only ones caring if its funny or not are the ones that are alive for which i did not laugh at whatever joke the guy was trying to make anyways

Loosen up. If you cant make light hearted jokes about a tragedy, then there is nothing but the pain, misery and sadness that comes with it. It only makes it worse becuase all you are thinking about is the bad behind it.

When i Die, ill Leave so much Debt that my Tombstone will be Repo'd

@laxman. those are some wise words. I been watching every season of 6 feet under, and my word you nailed it.
i am telling my friend today when i die, he must send an email to capcom and inform them that i am the biggest Dante (DMC) fan to exist. Hopefully capcom still loves their fans as much as their fans love their games (not all games)
