RYDDOK Gives Double Middle Fingers to All Inferior Lifeforms!

Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! I guess first things first I would like to apologize for the lack of content on this edition. For this entire week I was without a reliable source of internet. Now with that aside, please take the time to review over the Reformed Giant Bomb Forum Rules. EpicSteve is coming back to the site and home after his tour in Afghanistan and gives his thanks for your support here. The fan art for this week isn't just limited to Ryan, nope, someone on Twitter has some Drew fan art for you to check out. Also if you didn't hear Norman Chan celebrated his birthday yesterday. Next there's YouTube video created by user TepidShark of what Giant Bomb would be like if it were a television show. Finally check out the latest episode of the Bombcast animated series brought to you by user BRYN:

Wait, I thought I linked to my Tear Ring Saga review last spotlight.

Alright, thanks again for the mention!

That is awesome that The Giant Bomb Show is in the top paragraph. That project took me a really long time to do, so the notable mention is much appreciated.

Congrats everyone! Way to go 100% on the wiki pages. I'll add the latest Fire Emblem blog by Video Game King to the FE community blog.

Thank you, Video Game King. You're an awesome player.

I had no idea Lag Calibration was a thing. GIVE THIS MAN A MEDAL!

Also, I recommend this thread simply because it's the most surreal conversation on the site.

I thought this might be cool for next week snapshot. It's just a thread asking where people live but I made a map with it that bombers are able to add markers. It's looking pretty cool.Link.

I'd appreciate a call-out to the new Phallic and Yonic Imagery pages and perhaps a call for more associations, and also a reminder to people to post actual character nudity in the nudity page, as per activity in the Delete/Combine forum this past week.

I wrote a lengthy two-part brainfart on creating an ideal sandbox game and a deeply introspective list filled with terrible Dracula puns. No need to thank me.

Well it looks like the latest Spotlight will be late today. What should have been a fifty minute commute became a two and a half hour commute due to my underestimation of Labor Day Weekend traffic.

Anyways this is just a notification that I've just now started working on the new Spotlight, and sorry about that.
