    This is great to see, even with all of the terrible business practices going on in the gaming industry right now. What a fresh story. Great job Gearbox, and thanks for letting us know about it Craig!

      You should get this on N4G. Not only is it nicely written, but people should know about what Gearbox did for this fan.

    I’d heard about Michael before and thought it was really cool that Gearbox did this for him.

    The article is written very well, great read.

    This nearly left a tear in my eye. I’ve never seen any games company make a tribute to a fan like Gearbox. Even though Michael may have passed away, he’s immortal in our memories and will never die in Borderlands.
    R.I.P. Michael.
