 Special Thanks to VizMedia for Translating This Banner!

Hello and welcome to the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! A couple of housekeeping things to show you before you should delve into the best of the Giant Bomb Community. Firstly you can see what the future holds for Giant Bomb by reading Dave Snider's March Engineering Update on the Whiskey Media site. Dave also revealed that "Wikis will be getting a complete rewrite this year. It will come with a consistent scoring system and full histories," so wait on that piece of deliciousness in the future. Engineer Mike compared the adoption rate of IE9 vs Chrome 10 amongst Giant bomb users. Also the Real Message board is alive and well:
 
Uhhh...yeah. Finally buzz_clik, Giant Bomb's very own artist has made a minimalists abridged version of Star Wars Episode IV.

I thought I was clicking on an interesting list by a user I'd never seen before. I was wrong.

I'd like to take this opportunity to announce my new splinter podcast where I record whatever I mumble/scream while I sleep. It promises to be an uncomfortable look into my subconscious.

That's also the title of the splinter podcast to my splinter podcast. "Triple AAA" the podcast for batteries powered by batteries.

Not my topic, but this seems like it deserves a plug for people that play Rock Band 3.

Posted by Little_Socrates

I'm happy to take another podcast plug myself, but how's about I write a blog tonight or tomorrow for you and link that here?

I'm having a fan art contest for an Xbox 360 Hard Drive, classic PC games, and more!  Submit your photoshops, drawings, video, audio, haiku, and interpretive dance by Saturday for your chance to win!  We don't have many submissions yet, so you've got a good shot!

Post here for suggestions for next week's Spotlight right?  Just created a new blog entry that might be worthy.

Edited by Stew

Does the OP consider anything that's submitted in this thread? Would it be taboo for me to recommend my own stuff?
 
e: I'm quasi-new here.

Posted by ArbitraryWater
@Stew: Nah, it's ok to pimp your own stuff on the spotlight.  I mean, this list I wrote hasn't been featured yet.
 
See? Easy as hyperlinked pie!
