Wonderful Wikis 

 Hey everyone, Diablo III came out this week. As you might suspect check out Giant Bomb's unsurprisingly detailed wiki article for the game to see what changes have happened to the game. Max Payne 3 isn't a slouch either when it comes to good wikis. However once again, the Giant Bomb Fire Emblem community continues to impress in the efforts to make Giant Bomb your go to source on information about Fire Emblem. 

Lovable Lists 

 GB user Mento looks at recurring bosses that get a good drubbing. B0nd07 lists his favorite Quick Look moments from 2011. meb looks back at games he'd like to go back and play the co-op in his list, and Bundle85 list games from his childhood he wants to reacquire. 

Best of Blog 

 The true highlight this week is Marino's blog which compiles over seven years of Community achievement stats for your enjoyment. The breadth of information is down right astounding. Mento continues his commitment to get through his indie game back log, while AlexW00d works to get through the 1C Complete Pack. MooseyMcMan talks about wrapping up Xenoblade Chronicles and getting into The Witcher 2. User turbomonkey138 talks about a LAN party he recently attended. Bassman2112 provides some advice on how to make your own music while MajorMitch shares his favorite music themes. Hailinel gives you a history lesson on the Satellaview. Jan continues making fan works with his fan trailer for F-Zero 3DS. Atary77 talks about his issues with multiplayer games while CharlesAlanRatliffe discusses his memories with Mario Bros, and Psycosis about the most recent visual novel he has played. 

Fantastic Forums

GB user nivi has created his third tribute song to Jeff related to the CBSi merger. User TopSteer asks you to share the most expensive game that you have ever bought. The rest of the fantastic forums this week ask you to share what you have been doing and experiencing in Diablo III, good or bad.

I don't care if it's wrong if it feels so right.

There is nothing wrong with it; if anything, there is everything right with it.

Too bad all the Shining Force pages completely suck (especially the page for the first game, that page needs a wiki task bad)

What the hell is going on with Patrick in that image? great post as always. My blog this week really doesn't deserve mention. A friend bought Diablo for me as a surprise.

Congrats everyone and kudos to the wiki editors for their awesome wiki pages! I hope to work on more Skies of Arcadia character pages than Fire Emblem character pages this week.

Much obliged, Mr. Pie :3

I think I might possibly be nearing the half way point; I am up to the Ms now, but the latter half of the alphabet seems to hold more games, I'm not sure. The Men of War games are almost here which has me excited.

Good god that image up top is amazing haha. Thanks for having my blog up on this one, Zombiepie =)

Loved the 'seven years of achievements' also, super awesome

Great job, Community.

#13 Posted by DryvBy (249 posts) -

Wow, thanks for the recommendation for my review! Now if I can sleep and quit dreaming of legendary loot, I'll be all set.

@guadalupeavaldez:

Here are some recommendations:

  • Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 - A beautifully, detailed page. Great for getting new fans to try out the game.
  • Fiona - I did this one last week. Sorry, I couldn't do more wiki due to my job at Anime Vice and other wikia communities.
#19 Edited by takashichea (351 posts) -

Oh, I did complete Fina's page. Here is one Skies of Arcadia character. It's not detailed as Ramirez's page. I'll find and add some images to make it beautiful.

Edit:

My bad, I didn't complete her biography section for Fina. I'm finished with her wiki page.

It's Thursday so here's your super-seasonal list. Blog series is still going strong elsewhere, probably only doing four or five more of those.

Now back to Witcher II.
