Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! So you may noticed that this week I bumped the "Clips of the Week" section in favor of the "Community Activities" section. The reason is that Matthes Rorie, Danny O'Dwyer, and Dave Lang all need YOUR HELP in raising money to get games for members of the American Armed Forces! Not only that but all three of them will be hosting 24 hour streams to help raise money for a good cause. So check out the links and hopefully donate money to a good cause. Finally @Trace(Formerly known as PsEG) wants your help to create his iRacing team some cool Giant Bomb themed car art! With that let's move on to the next edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight!
- Giant Bomb Charity Live Stream for Operation Supply Drop! Help Mr. Rorie Raise Money for Member of the American Armed Forces!
- Danny O'Dwyer's Operation Supply Drop Account and Fundraiser!
- Dave Lang's Operation Supply Drop Account and Fundraiser!
- Hearthstone Community Tournament Interest Gauging Thread - Indicate Support or Interest in a Community Hearthstone Tournament Over Here!
Clip of the Week
Will there be a Kinect-less Xbox One? As this video correctly establishes, NO! Also, JayKayProd on YouTube has created a great radio styled intro for the Giant Bombcast.
