... Damnit... Sounds like one hell of a good man...
As for his work, a damn good artist as COH is fantastic...

RIP Brian...

A true hero, no questions about it. The driver of the blazer deserves to be locked away without the possibility of getting out. To sit there and think about the 3 lives she took because of a stupid decision.

That's very sad. And to think I sometimes take my sweater off while driving. I'll make sure to take the time to pull the car over next time.

My heart goes out to her and her unborn child. Heroes happen and she happened to have been married to one. There can be no greater love.

No offense meant, but "Wood slammed on the brakes and turned a sharp right so that the oncoming car would slam into the driver's side of the vehicle."

Are we sure that he did that "so that the car would slam into the driver's side" of the vehicle, or did he do that to try to avoid the accident? I think the guy is a hero, but there is no need to alter the events to make him a bigger hero. If a car was comming straight towards me, I'd hit the brakes and turn right also (aiming for the shoulder of the road), regardless of who was where in my car. I'd have zero time to think about how to mitigate the damage, hurt or protect specific people in the car etc. I certainly don't know if getting T'd is "safer" than head on collisions for anyone in the car.

I saw this news on CTV. Tore my heart apart.

They mentioned he designed video games, but I never thought he worked for CoH. One of my favorite RTS.

We need more people in this world like Woods. Rest in peace.

"The Chevy Blazer, carrying four occupants, crossed over the center line when the driver tried to remove her sweater"


Seriously, I hate to say it but there needs to be better driving standards in this country, people can't freaking drive.

Now why isn't this story on any major news sites in the U.S.? Oh, because gamers are all bad and will cause the downfall of the universe.
This type of story can easily counter all of the negative press that gamers get.

Brian Wood, RIP. Erin ~ best thoughts and hopes out to you and your future child.

Heartbreaking.

What a heavy weight for Erin to bear but reading the few words she provided, it appears that she will be more than up to the difficulty.

Very sad.
