Wonderful WikisThis week we have an usual mix of new and old. Bowling and Spelunker are oddly detailed wiki entries that the average user has yet to appreciate. The section on the Bowling wiki that describes how to deal with and avoid splits is especially crazy. With the Cyrsis 2 multiplayer beta getting some attention check out the wiki entry for the first game. With the recent Quest related to Bionic Commando I thought I would help in a way that is appropriate in directing you to a couple of the better wiki entries for games in the Bionic Commando franchise. Finally friend of the site Jared Rae REALLY likes Spelunker...he's the guy to the right in the Spelunker cosplay picture.

Author's Note: Did I forget something? I probably did due to me rejoicing in the fact that I'm the #1 wiki mod on Giant Bomb! Anyways if I forgot to showcase something you did just drop a comment on this thread with a link to the content and I'll promise that it will be up for next week. Also please in the event that you find something great that deserves more recognition contact or drop a link to the content on this blog. I appreciate any help I can find.
