Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! I have a bit of good news for all of you that did not get a chance to buy a poster from the store. Due to a glitch that said we were sold out of the signed posters the posters have been temporarily pulled from the store. However, they will be back this Monday so keep on the watch for that! If you haven't done so already wish @alexisg a happy birthday! Artist @aurahack just wants to die.
Clip of the Week
@turboman deserves a round of applause for reaching his fiftieth episode for his Best of Giant Bomb video series! This one features a lot of Patrick screaming and "Bat-Tech!"

If the banner isn't a dead giveaway it was all about the art this week! Spacedongle did a great Persona 5 banner, saik0u envisioned Brad as a wizard in Demon's Souls, and 1Gorebash remade the music video for "Money For Nothing" with the Bomb Squad! After checking all of those out feel free to join any of the many discussion threads we have on the site that range from playing EVE Online to predicting how bad the Sly Cooper movie will be.
