Welcome!

Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! You may or may not have noticed that things have been a little on the quiet side on the site. Between setting up a studio to record Quick Looks and preparing for PAX this weekend the staff have been strapped for time. Unfortunately the PAX East 2012 panel will not be livestreamed. Also if you are going to PAX East 2012 this week please stay safe and have as much fun as possible! You might find yourself laughing if you were to try and go to rivalvideogamewebsite.com now. Also Rorie is leaving Screened and is moving on to find work outside of both BermanBraun and CBSi, so please wish him the best of luck if you can. Finally here's the latest work of AMAZING art by Turbo_Toaster:

Wonderful Wikis

The wiki article for Xenoblade Chronicles is the true highlight for this week with an enormity of detail and a much anticipated US release. Diabolical Pitch is here for having a surprisingly good amount of detail considering what the game is. With the announcement of a Double Dragon reboot check out the evolution and progression of the franchise on Giant bomb's franchise page. Finally as I know many of you enjoyed latest Breaking Brad check out the Doom II wiki page as a result.

@Video_Game_King Never underestimate the allure of points and easy access to ROMs!

Congrats everyone!

Wow, that SNES Wiki project list is so awesome! The only time I get access to SNES games is through Virtual Console. I'm useless for that project. That Luchadeer banner is so cool.

I hope the SNES wiki completion project goes well. If Giant Bomb becomes the best place on the web for SNES information, that'd be a pretty awesome first step towards global video game wiki domination (though we're pretty much there already). It nothing else, the format can carry onto filling out the libraries of other systems as well. Mad respect to for all their hard work with that guide.

That guide by StarfoxA is a neat idea. Some fantastic blogs this week, too. As usual, can't thank you enough for the mention for my blog. Mento's extensive coverage of the Tales series was fitting, as I had just purchased Tales of the Abyss 3DS. That's a fantastic read. And if you're a blog reader and you don't keep up with dankempster, then you have issues.

Also, that "default image" list is solid gold.

A new blog series where I tell you what games need to be played, first up is Darksiders! http://www.giantbomb.com/profile/hizang/you-should-play-this-darksiders/30-92435/

Also great work as always duders, that SNES thing is awesome.

I'm offended by the underscore you added to my name. Only crazy people use underscores.

But thanks for the mention, anyways.

I wasn't really that bothered. I was just using it as an excuse to call and crazy people.

@ZombiePie I have a theory that you've been replaced by a high-functioning AI, ever since you responded to one of my posts with "your request has been processed." This only serves to further confirm my suspicions.

@ZombiePie:

You're doing that again? Might as well respond with something equally petty and annoying. *continues to @reply you in future Spotlights*

My parents wrote that name on my birth certificate and I'll be damned if I'm not going to use it.

@Gamer_152:

I initially read "birth certificate" as "bitch certificate". (We've all been there.) How do you feel about potentially being a certified bitch?

The certificate part. Nothing gets me as hot and bothered as documentation, that's why I became a moderator.
