Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! I am your host as always, ZombiePie. Some Xbox stuff happened this week. Unless you have been living under a rock you probably know that the Xbox One has been revealed and announced. Well that and the community and staff have been in a perpetual buzz about the console. Prior to the Xbox One reveal Patrick announced that before he moves to Chicago he plans on doing one more Jar Time video, send him any questions you may have to his Comic Vine or Tumblr account. Other madness this week includes Jonny Moseley responding (postively might I add) to Ryan's joshing around about Jonny Moseley's Mad Trix. If you enjoyed the old Behind the Screened Door podcast Alex and Matt Rorie have started a new movie podcast for subscribers! If you were wondering why this is subscriber content or have any other questions about this new project head on over here. With that check out these two Bombcast based videos! One about alcohol based enemas and the other being another great Bombcast animated clip:
Oh, and check out giantbomb.net.

One more thing about the Xbox One. XONE is the official abbreviation of the Xbox One, and not XBONE while that is considered an alias for the platform. Please keep this in mind when editing the wiki. Oh hey the Shin Megami Tensei IV has an amazingly detailed wiki page! It's almost as if there's a significant Shin Megami Tensei sub-community on Giant Bomb...I wonder how and when that happened. What the heck is Word Realms?! Well read all about the game on its surprisingly detailed wiki page.

Here's a PSA/PIF (freaking British people) about the list feature, the engineers estimate that in the next 2-3 weeks they plan on fixing the bug issues with large lists (i.e. not being able to edit some of your lists at all). With that aside jbrite shares his 10 favorite PS1 era RPGs and Emerald85 has started a list chronicling every single female ninja in video games.
