Thanks Greg Miller....

Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! Well everyone it appears that we have survived E3 2014! That said there's something we all need to talk about in regards to E3 and this community. Rorie and the entire Giant Bomb moderation team were truly disturbed by the behavior of many users on the live chat during the Giant Bomb Live! streams. Not only did many of you take the time to insult members of the staff, but many more made it their prerogative to insult our the guest panelists on the chat. If you were not already aware let it be known that the Forum Rules apply to your behavior on the live chat at all times. Flagrant violations on the chat will result in your accounts being warned, or even disabled on the main site. If you disagree with comments expressed by any of our guests during a live stream all of your criticism must be expressed in a civil manner. Rorie would like to remind all of you that Giant Bomb is an English language website. If you comment on the chat in a language that we do not understand we will assume that your comment is in violation of the Forum Rules, and you will suspended from using the chat for the remainder of the day. This may sound harsh in light of the hilarious and great moments that the staff provided all of us during E3. However, every single one of you should know that your behavior is a reflection of this community and this website. Do not do us a disservice on the chat, or anywhere for that matter. Please, abide by our Golden Rule and don't be a jerk. Let's try to lock up all of this inappropriate behavior and throw away the key.

Clips of the Week

So Oxyrain on YouTube has created all of the Giant Bomb staff in Tomodachi Life and is planning on making a musical using them The following clip is the first act of his musical. Speaking of Tomodachi Life here's a batch of QR codes from @stiftnuersel that allow you to upload a Giant Bomb staff "Rap Group" to your game. Is Rap not your thing? Well don't worry because @sharkosaur has created the Giant Bomb staff (including Ryan) as Boy Band members.

Best of Blogs

Giant Bomb mod Mento decided to provide the entire community with a blog series alternative to the E3 onslaught...which all of you proceeded to not read. So check that out as it is all about games from Legend Entertainment. Video_Game_King tackled Soul Reaver (again) and (not) a Japanese porn game. CottoneUD is still plugging away in Persona 4 Golden, and Sweep shares his opinions on the demographics in video games.

Fantastic Forums

We have nothing but hard hitting questions this week. Like is Dave Lang a meme machine or an actual person? Then there''s this thing called the World Cup that is happening right now. If you want your discussion threads on a video game website to be about actual video games...well we still have you covered. The Steam Summer Sale is drawing nigh, and all sorts of games worth talking about from the Destiny alpha to Tomodachi Life.

Lovable Lists

In effort to challenge the notion that all of the "big" games are coming out in 2015 benspyda has created a "purchasing guide" of the notable games worth purchasing that are coming out this year. FakeKisser on the other hand has a list of games that he plans to strike off from his "gaming backlog" during the Summer.

I feel I should enter the chat more often so that every now and then, I can post a YouTube link to a Japanese only video.

(Just be glad I didn't go with the low-hanging fruit of, "あんた馬鹿!")

When you're on Tumblr, aurahack's weird K-pop fetish is the least of your worries.

Alright so the end of the notifications go out to:

@flstyle @mb @akyho @video_game_king @dochaus @mento @benspyda @sarumarine @turboman @cottoneud @smcn @marino @wallofbricks @thatpinguino @bobafettjm @arbitrarywater @darthorange @lordbastich

Great work everyone, you will have something on the next edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight!

Oh and I would like to take this time to call out @aurahack. Originally I was going to put this under a spoiler, but this needs to be said...you have a problem and need to see professional help. Korea is just a country, and not a lifestyle.

@zombiepie: Y'know, letting people enjoy the things they enjoy isn't particularly difficult. I'd rather suggest seeking out help for being a bitter, hateful monster. :]

tl;dr

I drew some doodles again. No-one seems to want to stop this cycle of MS Paint despair.
