Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight. With Bastion finally out remember to check out the wonderfully produced video content that Giant Bomb has created to give you the behind the scenes information about the game you can't get anywhere else. Also it seems that our very own Brad has used his behind the scenes knowledge to dominate the Bastion Leaderboards across the globe. However dominating the world isn't the only gift that Brad has to tote this week as he received a very awesome StarCraft theme cake to celebrate his birthday. Yet Brad doesn't have a monopolistic grasp over celebrating birthdays this week as Giant Bomb, the site we know and love, is celebrating its founding. If you forgot a present see if you can run over to the gas station or the pharmacy to get something to give as a gift. Giant Bomb's wiki grows stronger as our first Task Initiative has been launched, the interns talked about comics, and finally because talking about it isn't as successful as just posting it here's the latest edition of the Best of GiantBomb Quicklooks by TurboMan:
