Ah, it's so odd when something like this happens.

Yeah, is it so strange when living things just die after a while, y'know?

It isn't so strange though considering that a month or more before a release a lot of the upper employees and programmers in these game companies have been known to work 20 hr days for 2 months straight. It's all high stress to. Sure it's surprising how young she was "my age" but the game industry will take it's toll on you.

I'd rather wait for a new game then to have someone stress themselves to the point of death while making it, designing it or whatever. The same goes for any product.

R.I.P I know how it feels to lose someone, especially someone real close.

Both were pretty strange to me, really. O_o It's not like either one was expected.

Billy Mays death is the saddest I've been about a death since Mitch Hedberg.

I wore khakis and a blue shirt the next day to work.
