Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Community Spotlight! There's not really that much housecleaning this week. Other than the usual tomfoolery that this site embarks on things have been very mellow. Due to recent events I would like to remind users to be more careful about attaching concepts and objects to wiki pages.
Other than that I'll just add to the brevity of this Spotlight by directing you to TurboMan's latest Best of the Giant Bomb Quicklook videos:

Wonderful WikisAs to be expected Killzone is the theme of this week with the second and third games both having wonderfully detailed wikis. Albert Wesker is making a lot of noise in the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 community but check out his character page on Giant Bomb. Giant Bomb CLEARLY has a thing for bowling. Finally Xenogears is being re-released on PSN so it seems appropriate to showcase the wiki page for a game many gamers are very nostalgic about.

Lovable ListsAlright guys I have a little request this time. Marino is a beast when it comes to the wiki. However when a user took offense to his rulings on some wiki related issues he decided to get revenge by voting down all of his lists detailing his dedication to the site. Said user then created an alt and down voted his lists again. So please check out Marino's lists and give them the credit they deserve!

Best of Blogs/Fantastic ForumsThe Giant Bomb community really has a soft spot for JRPGs. Between the constant flow of desktop art for Persona 4 and various JRPG themed endurance blogs I guess Giant Bomb has always been turning Japanese. Gamer_152 completes his wonderful series of blogs about how to become a game designer. ZanzibarBreeze is the master of podcast based nostalgia trips. Sweep and PsEG prove that even when you are a mod you can still blog. Mento continues his successful old vs. new blog series. This time he examines the Final Fantasy series.
