Goldeneye: Source Modder Has Committed Suicide

It has recently come to light that “nickster” one of the founding members of the Goldeneye: Source project has committed suicide. In a recent post on the community he help created and build to a monumental success over the past few years his father informed the forumites of the triadic event in which he took his life by sharing the last paragraph of his goodbye note with his online friends. The note read:

“[i]And finally there is a part of me that is really looking forward to finding out the answer to one of life’s great mysteries. Is there life after death? What is out there? So many people go about their daily lives unconcerned with the fact that they are nothing more than an ant upon a huge rock flying through a universe so large it can’t even be imagined. The universe is so vast, what is my part to play in this thing called life? Nobody knows for sure what happens to our souls when we depart this plain of existence. I am going to find out. I think it’s going to be something both unimaginable and great. I will see you on the other side.

Over the past few years I visited that said community many times and right now I recall seeing his name many times over that period. I never knew him personally or talked to him online like many others did but I would like to add my voice to the masses and say RIP Nickster.
