Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! As this week concludes E3 comes to and end and everyone can go back to living a life filled with mundane surprises instead of groundbreaking industry changing ones. However, let's give a hand to everyone involved in production and direction of all of the videos that entertain us this year! Especially after the theft of all of the staff's video equipment it was a significant undertaking to bring you the video entertainment we all enjoyed for this year. On that note special thanks to Danny O'Dwyer and GameSpot for providing Giant Bomb with their spare video kits, and Drew and Vinny for recording and processing hours of entertainment at the cost of their sanity. If case you have time to kill someone has posted Jeff's 6 hour plus recording of his drive to Los Angeles for E3 on YouTube. For those asking you will most likely have to go to Twitch.tv to view the video versions of the E3 Livestreams as an on site archive is unlikely, although the audio versions will be hosted on the site as podcasts. Patrick's Interview Dumptrunk has broken the top ten on iTune's podcast list, although a website named "GamingBlend seems to think that Patrick looks like Shia LaBeouf. Finlly here are the winning banners for our E3 Banner Contest:

Best of Blogs
Hey there are a lot of blogs about people's different interpretations of the console and game announcements during E3 2013. You should read them all because they are all rational and reasonable takes on the future of gaming. See Giant Bomb chat, it is possible. Other non-E3 related blogs come from Video_Game_King who is playing obscure Japanese games as usual. HS21 wants you to help him in turning the always smiling Brad Muir into a meme, and Jan wants you to marvel at his ability to make Halo Spartans dance. Mento has started playing Vampire: The Masquerade and ComradeCrash has been playing State of Decay. Finally TwoLines discusses why Chrono Cross is a baffling masterpiece and Alaska_Gamer talks about Double Dragon Neon and Demon's Souls.
