Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! You may or may not have noticed that things have been a little on the quiet side on the site. Between setting up a studio to record Quick Looks and preparing for PAX this weekend the staff have been strapped for time. Unfortunately the PAX East 2012 panel will not be livestreamed. Also if you are going to PAX East 2012 this week please stay safe and have as much fun as possible! You might find yourself laughing if you were to try and go to rivalvideogamewebsite.com now. Also Rorie is leaving Screened and is moving on to find work outside of both BermanBraun and CBSi, so please wish him the best of luck if you can. Finally here's the latest work of AMAZING art by Turbo_Toaster:

The wiki article for Xenoblade Chronicles is the true highlight for this week with an enormity of detail and a much anticipated US release. Diabolical Pitch is here for having a surprisingly good amount of detail considering what the game is. With the announcement of a Double Dragon reboot check out the evolution and progression of the franchise on Giant bomb's franchise page. Finally as I know many of you enjoyed latest Breaking Brad check out the Doom II wiki page as a result.
