    I was planning on playing around with the API and wanted to know if there are any client libraries I can use or should I be writing my own?

There's a rubygem called giant_bomb if you use that language. 
Other than that I don’t think there are any other GB-specific libraries floating around…

@eswat: thanks, I'll have a look at that... I'm not really tied to any language at the minute, I just want to play around

I've got plans to build a library for my own PHP scripts, which I will of course allow other people to use. And if you bug jlrm01 about it, maybe he can make something useful in Python. So you've got a few options; although if you need something right now it seems your only option is Ruby.

I'm in the process of building a C# library for .NET applications for free. It's going to be hosted on CodePlex. Would there be interest in this?

@papuccino1: I'd like to see it.

Is there anyone currently working on a Java library?

@pddemeter: If there's enough interest I could probably be convinced to release the C# classes that are used by my WP7 app. They're really just a bunch of model objects using C# XML serialization to read data from the GB API, but it's a useful starting point and gets you out of the business of parsing stuff.
