For those of you who are unaware: John "Totalbiscuit" Bain (video game reviewer and the voice of Vinnie [and Spike]) just died today.

It's... really rather sudden, for such a recognizable figure in the gaming community to pass away. He was diagnosed with cancer awhile back and did recently stop reviewing, but it's still shocking for him to just disappear like that.

Regardless of what you may think of John Bain it would be an understatement to say that he hasn't had an impact on the gaming industry. He has been a famous member of various online communities and has formed several communities of his own.

May you rest in peace, John. The Awesomenauts community will always remember you Vinnie.
Nyaa...

I never thought I'd get my news from GuyBrush.

Rest In Peace

What a horrible way to go. I hope he lived his last days to their fullest. At least... as full as someone with cancer can live them.

Twitter's descended into a re-enactment of the War of the Roses.

Except with more memes.

Knew it was coming, still wasn't ready for it. He lasted a really long time for someone with his condition, I hope he was able to make those days feel like they were worth living despite all the pain...

Rest in peace, John Bain. You'll be missed...

He was struggling with cancer for quite some time now and, even though death was a real possibility, it's still gonna take some time to assimilate this for a lot of people... f***, i got no proper words left for this.

RIP John Bain, a source of inspiration and laughter for many viewers and aspiring youtubers. My most sincere condolences.

For those that don't know, Total Biscuit was the voice of Vinnie.
His friends and colleagues, Jesse Cox and Dodger, voiced Genji and Penny respectively.

I guess most people here will know him through the character Vinnie, but to me he was more a voice of reason in a sick society. He talked about more than just videogames, and you could tell by the way he spoke that he had principals. I didn't watch most of his content but I did try and catch his opinion on any politically or culturally relevant issues with his long-form monologue videos. He had the right mix of values, humor, presentation and leadership which is rare among the population. I know people die everyday on this planet, but you can't care about everyone equally, it would make it impossible to live a normal life. TB was one of those people for whom I reserved my freedom to care. See you on the other side you absolute legend of a man. :tear:

That's... really saddening. I knew it was coming, but I didn't expect it to happen so soon. Rest in peace, man. :tear:
