Better late than never. Due to me being at PAX Prime 2012 in Seattle last week, I didn't really have time to put together a data blog for Giant Bomb's August numbers. But here's your monthly dose of blue bars and lines. The wiki saw a decent boost in submissions partially due to a few users dedicated to filling in release info. It's a thankless job, but someone's gotta do it eventually.
Here are the most active bloggers followed by a look at the number of blogs posted per day on the site. What the hell happened on the 20th?
Once again, themost popular topics on the Giant Bomb forums this month are rasslin' and cartoons. The images below this one are for Replies per Day, Top 10 Forums by Most Topics (Dark Souls?!), Top 10 Topic Creators, and finally the number of topics created per day.
We haven't had new quests on the site in almost a year, but there's still people out there doing them. Here's the proof.
Only one real surprise in the top ten most reviewed games in August. How the hell did Limbo get up there?
With just over 50,000 views, Vinny's romp through Sleepy Dawgs was the most watched video in the month of August. Coming in second was the debut of Kinect Party. No one can deny the power of hyperstyle. The following graphs show the usage of the various quality levels as well as the top video commentors.
As I mentioned above, we had more submissions in the queue this month mainly due to a bunch of release data being added/updated. Sadly, much of this data should probably be ignored though, due to some "questionable" edits which were later removed. Also, ZombiePie's reign at the top has come to an end. Although, he's got a head start on September, so I'm sure he'll be back up there soon.
See ya next month!
