Landon will live on in the memory of our earliest games from our work with Half-Life and Halo to the creation of our first, original game Brothers in Arms. Aloha, Landon. https://t.co/vuBi3MYJp5

Sorry for unloading some fond memories… such a shock. I still need to process it upon He left the Gearbox in 2007, I think, and I only saw him a couple of times over the last decade or so… I cannot imagine how those closest to him more recently are managing the news.
