The Community Spotlight - 03/17/2011


 Special Thanks to ME!!!! For the Banner This Week!
Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! Well it's St. Patrick's Day and you know what that means. It's either a religious monet where you and your community congregate at your nearest chapel or you get stone cold drunk. If you want to discuss Irish themed games then well you have a thread to meet those needs. Check out this awesome user created MK9 themed Giant Bomb logo. There's fresh batch of wiki tasks that are still open to everyone to get some easy points for. Other than that the staff is still recuperating from their PAX ordeal/fiasco. A lot of crazy stuff happened at PAX...here's proof if you needed any:

The Enix Corporation wiki tells an interesting tale of corporate history. Final Fantasy XII was recently Wikipedia's Featured Article of the Day so Giant Bomb should showcase their own entry to toot! Also the weakling Sean continues the theme of Street Fighter characters having awesome wiki entries.

People are still musing about Dragon Age II and are still split about the game's new direction. The Persona Re-Endurance Run continues. Mento contemplates about genre bending dungeon crawlers and GlenTennis tells you why Goemon is the best N64 game ever made. I

I'd hit that banner. Probably because I've had a few drinks. 
 
Looking forward to diving in this week, I was pretty busy and apparently I've missed some juicy stuff. Great work as always :)

Pink Floyd reference? Apologies if I'm way out, but the only place I've ever heard the words "worm your honor" in that order and context is on the penultimate track of The Wall
 
Anyway, thanks for featuring my latest blog post in this week's Spotlight, ZombiePie. Thanks also to whoever suggested it for inclusion - it truly humbles this ol' blogger to the core to think that this community not only reads my stuff, but also thinks it's worth sharing. Once again, thanks.

I think Ryan Davis would approve of me saying that "That banner is bad as shit." And I think you can accurately take that either way. 
 
Thanks for the mention, too! 
 

Updates!

Not sure if this was featured last week or whatever, but a user made a GG button app for android phones. Pretty awesome. 
New Bombcast Breakdown!! <---- Double the exclamation points

Hey ZombiePie, I know you've included an older episode of my podcast, but we've modified the format (partially to make it less similar to the Giant Bombcast) and I'd love to see it added to next week's Community Spotlight. 
 
The link to the RSS feed is here. Again, I'd like to thank you for the support you've given me so far on the site, along with performing such a great Community Spotlight every week. 
 
(Also, the reviews of Homefront were both excellent. Congrats, guys!)

Why can't I make a new thread in general for say Black Ops? plus why are all the threads dated WTF is going on?

Very nice banner ZombiePie. I guess I'll throw more of my narrative-themed nonsense up here for you to consider for the next spotlight.
