Former Gamespot editor and Giant Bomb co-founder Ryan “Taswel” Davis has died at the age of 34. The news was reported via Giant Bomb today that Davis passed away on July 3rd. The cause of death wasn’t given. Davis co-founded Giant Bomb with Jeff Gerstmann following the GameSpot exodus of 2008 and, to make the news even more heartbreaking, he was just married days before his passing.

Gaming community members have begun numerous discussions on sites like Giant Bomb, Reddit and several other spots around the web and on social media to reflect on Davis' contributions to the industry.

Ten Ton Hammer would like to extend our condolences to the Davis family, friends, co-workers, and the Giant Bomb community.
