Many Thanks to User FoxxFireArt for the Banner!

Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! For those interested to read up on some information about the various interns that Giant Bomb is bringing into their premises check out Ethan's blog about the new blood. If any of you are even more interested about what it is like being an intern for Whiskey Media then check out intern Undeadpool's blog about his first month. By hook and by crook the Giant bomb Community barely was able to accomplish the Limited Edtion Brink Quest Set for bonus EXP for 3,000 fastidious users. There are now TWO user created Giant Bomb Windows Phone 7 apps that serve different needs for all of the Giant Bomb users with Windows Phone 7. Here's a thread for one of the apps. Audio/Video man Drew recently celebrated his birthday! Tell him happy birthday if you can!

I would love to play a game called "First Fuckers". Best game ever. It would give FF a run for its money or not.

Did you purposely misspell "Deus Ex" and "Stats"?

@LordAndrew: The links still work.

Nice, my first spotlight! Hopefully the first of many. Now it's time to read up.

I love the fact that I see more games having wiki pages that has a soundtrack section.

Posted by A_Cute_Squirtle

I recently wrote a blog about my writings on video game soundtracks that I'm conducting on the music blog I work with. I know it's a link to an external site, but it does outline the (hopefully) weekly project i'm conducting on bringing people who normally wouldn't encounter the music (aka, the people who don't play games but enjoy good music).

Unless there are any objections I think this will make a most excellent banner for the next Spotlight:

@ZombiePie:

I have an objection: it's too vertical. Banners are supposed to be horizontal.

@ZombiePie: I think i'm going to go and edit you into this as full-size. I didn't have your full-sized avatar before, but now I do.

EDIT: done. Also I made you one that's slightly more banner-ish, Z

I still have no idea what the shit at the top is. As for your problem, hint: Zombie Pie is watching you from afar.

That would be Joseppi to the left, NuclearWinter in the middle, and LordofUltima to the right. NuclearWinter is named after a Freedom Force character. LordofUltima is a fan of the Expos...And Joseppi....well...yes.

Honestly I thought MB was the hardest to find.

Who's the person on the left?
Posted by ZombiePie

@Video_Game_King: Oops that's Joseppie. I meant to say left with Joseppie's avatar.

Posted by Guided_By_Tigers
@ZombiePie: I can't find you or MB....can you circle them or something?.....and are Turbo_Toaster and Wafflestomp in there too?

For those who might find themselves a little frustrated with the amount of praise being heaped onto LA Noire, I recommend you check out my review of the game to get a different, but hopefully still reasonable, perspective than that offered by the press. Hope you don't mind some negative criticism. (Just got 20 recommendations on a single review, so I'm feeling pretty good about that, even if it did come with 12 down votes as well.)
 
Also, the Giant Bomb Mortal Kombat Fight Night could use some pimping. We even have a fancy new banner!

To clarify, "Quest Set" should be spelled "Quest Stats" and "Dues Ex" should be spelled "Deus Ex". Everything's functional, it just makes you look like you don't know how to spell simple words like "stats". :P There's still time to fix this before the next CS.

Is this where we recommend stuff for the next spotlight? I just wrote a review of Dungeons and Dragons: Daggerdale after finishing it earlier. It's not a very good game!

Posted by ZombiePie

@AjayRaz: You wrote a review for a Dead or Alive game? Why?
