Hello and welcome to the latest edition of  the  Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! Let's get on with site announcements. The website Known Griefers have done an interview with our very own Patrick Klepek worth reading if you haven't already. Also related to Patrick is this week's edition of his Worth Reading series. Matt Kessler's Skyrim Daedric Quest video guide has become the second most viewed Giant Bomb YouTube video. GB user  and former intern   EpicSteve is back in Afghanistan, but he wants to be able to keep up with the latest reviews and news about video games. So he's asked for members of the community to email big reviews and important articles to him at beynon@live.com. Finally Giant Bomb has uploaded its 1,000th Quick Look! Mission Accomplished! Anyways as always remember to check out the Bomb Shelter   and to email interns@whiskeymedia.com to get content on the "Rad Stuff" tab on the front page of Giant Bomb. With that rejoice ask yourself how much better would Asura's Wrath be if Brad was the main character: 
 Pretty Awesome.

Wonderful Wikis 

 SSX is the new release getting the most attention this week. If you are interested in the game but don't know what it is all about check out Giant bomb's wiki article for the game. The giant bomb continues it's appreciation of the Megaten games with its good work on the Devil Survivor 2 page. Finally to commemorate Dave getting his pizza mailbag check out the Community's passion for pizza on our wiki object page for the delicious object. 

Best of Blogs 

The Giant Bomb Community is getting creative this week! The major highlight this week would be user MikeFightNight's Blu-Ray boxed set of the Persona 4 Endurance Run. To top that users CL60, Robster, and Jan are all dabbling in the dark arts of 3D modeling. The Community also continues to write about the PlaySation Vita with user RainVillain writting his first impressions and Enigma777 talking about the little things about the Vita. User Chubbaluphigous has gone a different route when it comes to assessing the Vita. He's written a blog reviewing the Vita's K-Pop playing and streaming abilities. PAX East is around the corner and if you plan on going check out Marino's updated PAX guide. Engineer Mike is the master of Battlefield vehicles, and there are still plenty more blogs worth looking at.  

Lovable Lists 

 If you wanted to know how the "Random PC Game" video series has progressed over the times look no further than Mento's latest list. In Doppelgamer's list he's come to surprising conclusion that he's played a lot of games with ninjas in them. Finally check out and add suggestions to Moncole's list of hooded characters.  

Useful User Reviews

GB user Salmon has taken the time and money to import Gravity Rush and has written a review about its importability and playability.  Also Intern Perry is writing user reviews instead of getting the staff sandwiches! Some contact Jeff!

The P4 ER bluray set is outstanding. As user-content goes, that's some ''Hamst3r'' level of quality right there.

Thanks for the link to my interview with Patrick! It was a treat to speak with him!

Posted by Mento

Yay, the category lead-ins are back.

Now they just need to double-barrel this with Klepek's "Worth Reading" thing every Friday for oodles of weekend reading material. While ogling that P4 ER BR set. Man, I want it.

Well I would like to promote the stalker series I'm working on, it's a work in progress so I'll post the intro and add my first entry when I can. I hope that's alright!

Can you bump a topic that's pinned to the top? Well, I can try: TWO blogs this week. There. Did that cause any bumpage?

I don't think that's how that works, but I appreciate the thought.

A topical thing and a stupid thing from me this week. That sounds typical enough.

Well most of your new lists are kind of stupid...let's just be honest with ourselves for a minute here.
