Shacknews will watch this story as it develops. We would also like to send our deepest condolences to the Neubauer family, including his wife Heather Ito.

Ozzie has been playing video games since he got his first NES controller at the age of five. He has been into games ever since, only being away for a brief period during his college years. But it was pulled again after spending years in the quality assurance circles for both THQ and Activision, spending most of the time helping propel the Guitar Hero series into its heyday. Ozzie has become a huge fan of platform games, puzzle games, shooting games, and RPGs, just to name a few, but he’s also extremely absorbent in anything that has a good and compelling story behind it. Because what are video games if you can’t enjoy a good story with a new Cherry Coke?
