Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! Now I hate to start the Spotlight with sad news but this week it looks like I will have to. Video magician Ana of Tested fame is leaving Whiskey Media, and if you haven't done so already give her you thanks and goodbyes. As for good news engineer Mike has said that in "[The Engineers] are in the process of 'optimizing' our site now." What does this mean? The site will probably get faster. Also you may have noted some format changes on the forums. Don't freak out this is normal. If you are interested in winning free games GB user CharlesAlanRatliff is hosting a Community Game Giveaway everyday for a while so keep an eye on his blog feed to try and win some free games! Finally as always remember to check out the Giant Bomb YouTube Page as well as the Bomb Shelter for all of the best of the best of Giant Bomb. So with that here's Lemon's latest Bombcast Bombination video:
