The Community Spotlight - 02/24/2011

 

 Special Thanks to User FoxxFireArt for the Banner!


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:
  

Notable Stuff and Events

  • Batman Batman Batman: The Official Killzone 3 GB Clan Thread -- Sign up HERE!

  • Vito's Game Giveaway #6 -- Due Feb 26th -- Check out the details HERE!

 

Wonderful Wikis

As 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. 
 

User Reviews

 

Lovable Lists

Alright 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 Forums

The 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.

Author's Note: Blah blah blah yeah I know I forgot something! Look I'm only human and try the best I can. However if I have forgotten something or you have created or found something totally awesome then drop a comment on this webzone and I'll think about sending you a pizza roll.

Not to be anal, but it's Mike Haggar, not "Haggard" (perish the thought). Be respectful, the dude's a major after all.

Say I made a totally awesome pizza roll. Like, I finally figured out how to make a pizza roll that didn't taste like ass. Would I get another pizza roll from you for making something "totally awesome" or would I only be allowed to bask in the glory of having the one I made?

Dammit, I wanted to be first again. Fucking beer run.

Thanks for pointing this out. Any help from the community would be appreciated. Since any positive vote sends me a PM, I'd definitely check out the lists of anyone I get a notification from.

Yeah, crazy week for Jerperger love. Stands to reason, since I hesitate to imagine how many people found Giant Bomb because of its Endurance Run of Persona 4.
 
Also, thanks again for the blog mention.

Since I got one last time, and two this time, I'll call it a hat trick. 

@HS21: @DOOM2exe: @DOOM2exe: 
Let it be known I got it write on my list. Send all angry mobs to ZombiePie and not to me.

Mr. Hagger sees your pure intentions. All is well I'm sure. But yo, have you seen his daughter?

Let it be known that I was HS' guiding light in PS Home. He found Jesus on that day. And Satan too. Cool dudes.

Yeah, I noticed that you got it right. The only thing that displeases Mike Haggar about your list is the fact that it does not include all games.

Why, has she gone missing or something? Man, I hope she hasn't been kidnapped or anything.

Haha. 
 
I have fixed the typo to something more appropriate.

No, no, no. I'm sure she just went to the mall and left her cell at home or whatevs. 
 
@ZombiePie: That fucking "We Dare" commercial that's been going around has everyone rattled and making typos.

You... you forgot to add that one thing that that one dude pointed out.

Obviously nothing.

Today was a great day in fighting games. 

 Marvel Super Heroes Vs. Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of  X-Men: Children of the Atom; now with three times more Cyclops than any game ever released.
I didn't know where else to post this, but I thought it was pretty cool.

I like Dead Space 2: Stronghold. I'm sure a Dead Space property will eventually use the word "stronghold" at the rate they're going.
