Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! This week the staff were at GDC talking to and interviewing a motley number of industry members. If you tried to use the mobile site last week and had issues rest assured that site engineer Andy has fixed them and the site should be fine for mobile viewing. If you have plans on going to PAX East this year rejoice at the news that Dave will be going to the event as well and promises to buy drinks will "on the house" if you meet up with him. In other big new Ryan Davis has become engaged! If you wanted to follow the lucky lady on Twitter @EnemyNanner. Giant Bomb user Mustard who has been diligently maintaining his Brad Quick Look Start to Death is retiring the list in light of Brad's 100th Quick Look Death. Anyways as always remember to check out the Bomb Shelter and to email firstname.lastname@example.org to get content on the "Rad Stuff" tab on the front page of Giant Bomb.

Wonderful WikisThe release of Mass Effect 3 and Street Fighter X Tekken has wrapped a good number of the GB community into creating amazing wikis for those games. The SLy Cooper character page caught the attention of a couple of Giant Bomb users after they discovered it was blank and the same can be said about the slew of Fire Emblem Character pages being showcased this week. If you're curious as to who won what award during the latest GDC head on over to the Game developers Choice Awards 2012 page.

Great GuidesAnd now for the return of User Created Guides. This should have happened earlier as many of these guides were created and published last week but I'm just now showcasing them now because I forgot to check the Guides tab last week. Rest assured if you take the time to work on a game guide I promise you I'll showcase it.
