Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! I'm still on the raod to recovery, but was feeling alright when making this.For those wondering I plan on start re-submitting community recommendations to Patrick this week for his Worth Reading article. However, the big announcement this week that the Giant Bomb Community Endurance Run is LIVE THIS WEEKEND! Watch their streams and help them raise money for a good cause over here. @m16mojo on the other hand is looking to set up a Portland, Oregon PDX LAN meet-up. Finally our very own @rorie is holding a lottery to give away his Collector's Edition stuff for Warlord of Draenor. With that let's get on with the latest edition of the Community Spotlight!
