Hello and welcome to the belated latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight. I am your host as always, ZombiePie to provide you with a weekly "spotlight" on the latest great works from the Giant Bomb community. The week is over, luckily that's true! With the doldrums of the video game season in full effect, and recent events considered may I recommend that you take the time to tell someone you care for that you love them? Anyways, if you haven't seen the images that the community has produced as a result of Ryan's request for a new podcast image...man, you are missing out. I means here are some examples:
- Giant Bomb Injustice: Gods Among Us Community Online Play Thread - Post Your Gamertag or ID Over Here!
- Brand New Giant Bomb Community Minecraft Server - Join the Server Over Here!
Injustice is the big release this week and you should check out the wonderful wiki for teh game if you can. I'd make a lame joke about how I sure hell don't know anything about Shin Megami Tensei games...but I've done that joke ten times already. Crusader: No Remorse and Games on Which Comic Books are based both have had some awesome recent work done on them worth looking over.
- Injustice: Gods Among Us
- Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers
- Crusader: No Remorse
- Games on Which Comic Books are Based
