I never played SR2, but I remember how effective his work was in PanzerSkank and Kauboc's LP, making possibly one of the greatest LPs in existence. Sympathies to his family.

His work made my absolute favorite let's play ever possible. And I notice now and again that Kaubocs does editing on it when youtube fucks with it for whatever reason as the years go by.

Wow, I recently had the urge to play through the series again. That's a shame, RIP.

You never learn anything
by doing it right.

I didn't know idolninja personally, but I talked with him a few times and he came off as the absolute sweetest guy - very kind, very helpful. I remember thinking "good for him" when he got hired. I'm very sad to hear that he's passed. gently caress cancer.

There are five fucks at the edge of a cliff...

Rest in peace IdolNinja. He took the time to address some modding issue for me years ago but havent been in contact with him in a while, this comes as a shock to me. Iím a big fan of the game cause of his mods.

The glow is a guide, my friend. Though it falls to you to avert catastrophe, you will never fight alone.

loving hell... May he be at peace now.

The man was an inspiration, for sure. I'm glad he got to do what he was passionate for, at least.

I would love to see this revived for IdolNinja, no clue if it matters but I made this back in the day and definitely endorse using it for the "fundraising to gently caress cancer" idea

Sic Parvis Magna and all that

I'm the video editor at Volition. I've been good friends with Mike ever since I started working at the studio back in 2015. We'd hang out a lot to watch lovely movies and talk about anime. I don't think I'll meet anyone quite like him ever again. Dude was just so friendly and supportive. The front lobby at Volition has a bunch of memorabilia from the various games we've released in it, and there's an old promotional SR2 40 oz malt liquor there that I want to pour out for him sometime.

IdolNinja gave me so many hours of joy with Gentlemen of the Row and Gentlemen of Steelport. Without him I probably would have given up on the whole franchise after an hour or so of struggling with that awful SR2 port.

RIP to the real boss.

Why would an ambulance be leaving the hospital?

Really sad. I rarely interacted with Idolninja but he was a sweet guy and always so helpful. This sucks.

Mike was such a nice dude. We'd chat every now and then on steam and he was very cool about my dumb questions and suggestions.

Pour one out for the realest one.

you're one of them fancy lads, ain't ya?

Oh ok so idolninja dies from cancer... meanwhile the guy in my neighborhood that prints up posts from criagslist & staples 'em to telephone poles? Yeah he's walking around unscathed. That's what's doublebad about cancer, it has bad taste.

Late to post, but wanted to pay my respects anyway. Idolninja was one of the people who convinced me to go back to SR2 and give it a second shot. I ended up falling in love with it because of his work and the rest of the SR series. It helped me through some pretty dark times, and I should thank him for that.

Went from talented modder to community manager and was a good guy in a time where that is rare.

Pour one out for this loving Saint.

My brother and I were just talking the other day about how much fun it was to hop in SR2 on our PCs and just goof around, and a big part of that was of course the Gentlemen of the Row mod. RIP to a real one.

SR2 ended up being one of my fav games of all time, and it wouldnt even launch on my PC without his fixes

RIP to the canon boss
