Friday Bomb Drop

A wrap-up of the week's top stories, reviews and community content.

It's Friday! That means it's time the for our regularly scheduled Bomb Drop. And by "scheduled," I of course mean "the inaugural excuse to relate a Peter Sellers image to something on Giant Bomb." So without further ado, here's a bunch of links to the best content from this week. If you have anything to show off feel free to leave it in the comments or send me a PM for next week's edition.

Peter Sellers isn't the guy riding the bomb! Don't desecrate the dead, Giant Bomb!

Posted by BawaTheGamer

It be neat to have a weekly video with the weeks games and news!!!!

Posted by fraser

You can't fight in here gentlemen, this is the war room!

Posted by John

This is such a good idea!

Posted by MattBodega

This is exactly what Giant Bomb needs; Community stuff pimped on the site itself. Totally awesome. Super sweet. And not just because I got a mention.
Now, if you excuse me, I'm working on the preservation of our bodily fluids.

HOLY CRAP!! People read my blogs??

Are you asking if I'm a robot? Yes, yes I am.

Posted by LordAndrew

That's what I thought. :)

It's called abstinence, Bodega...

Posted by Dudacles

This is awesome.

Posted by I_am_Lono

I really wish you wouldn't use the term "threw up a Fable II guide" makes it sound like a member of the community vomited a game guide.

Posted by jakob187

I'll have my Fallout 3 review up sometime this week...finally...for anyone who reads them.

Posted by BoG

my new goal is to be featured in Peter Sellers's weekly Bomb Drop.

Posted by snide

A good way to get in here is to make sure you've friended me so that I've got you in my blog feed.

"Are you asking if I'm a robot? Yes, yes I am."

No!! This website is in the hands of a robot! RUN!

I'm so proud I get the reference and I'm 17. Hooray for Turner Classic Movies Free on Demand programming! Also, I really like the community updates, which I don't check much. This is very solid.
