The Community Spotlight - 06/02/2011

Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Community Spotlight! With E3 breathing down our necks there's a lot to talk about. Please read up on the forum and wiki rules while E3 is in full swing. Matt Bodgea has been creating a slew of blogs about his return as an intern. Undeadpool has been doing the same and GlenTennis wants you to know what it is like behind the scenes during a Happy Hour show. Staff member Ethan would like you know that you all enjoy cosplay and anime (or maybe boobs). There's a very interesting and helpful Mortal Kombat emote Guide by Burn1n9m4n. There was some Brad related cannibal slash fiction that I had to delete...and that's all I want to say about that. Finally much to my joy engineer Mike hopes to limit the need for tables in wiki entries. Other than that sit back and try to enjoy E3 as much as you can.

I'm getting 404 errors for pretty much every link.

Posted by Mento

Everything besides the wiki articles have "forums/general-discussion" in their addresses.
 
Lot of blogs this week. Gawrsh. Wish I'd remembered to write something.

Not a lot of lists this week. *transforms into Goofy* Gawrsh. I wish I actually made that list.

Great roundup, as always. Links being broken aside, of course. They all have extra forum paths in them for some reason.

Thanks for the mention of my live stream thread! Great work as always.

Posted by Pepsiman

Much obliged for yet another plug! Thoroughly bummed that I'm not my own section of General Discussion, though. That's a real bummer for my ego.

@Pepsiman
 
I'm not exactly sure what you're saying, but why not just make yourself a section of General Discussion? You know, like I have?
Posted by Guided_By_Tigers

Fix those links up, you slacking brah.

@KaosAngel: @SMTDante89: @Unknown_Pleasures: The links should be fixed now.

Awesome, ZombiePie!  Thanks for the link!

Posted by Trace

Don't want to risk editing it myself because of the hyperlink issue, but Forza Scrub League actually starts at 8:00 PM, not 10:30 PM. 10:30 PM is normal Forza Race Night. Thanks!

Why so many 404 errors???

Posted by dankempster

Thanks for mentioning my latest blog, ZombiePie. I have to admit I was kind of disappointed with the lack of response given all the hard work I put into it, so it's nice to get a little recognition in the Spotlight :)

Posted by Gamer_152

Wow, that's quite the haul this week.

You can tell which links are broken because they have an external link icon next to them.

Posted by Video_Game_King
@LordAndrew
 
When the hell did that start? It looks clunky as hell and serves little purpose.
Posted by LordAndrew
@Video_Game_King: I first saw it today, in this thread. And it does indeed look pretty bad.
Posted by ZombiePie

@Video_Game_King: @LordAndrew: Those shouldn't be there. I don't know what I did but I broke something.

Regardless I believe all of the links are fixed.

Oh shit! Thanks for featuring my blog, Zombie! :P

I finished my first part (Konami) of my lengthy traditional journalism entries of Pre-E3 events. Expect to see the other conferences covered in detail!

Posted by Matthew

@ZombiePie: Thanks for the shoutout to my poll there kid. They're actually pretty fun to make.

Congrats Everyone!

Let's keep up the good work.

I finally finished Part 3 of the Community TNT Promo Gallery. And while you're there, you can take a gander at my E3 profile theme using this 'shop I made specifically for that purpose.

Posted by CrimsonAvenger

I get in on this every week on screened so I think I'll get in on this here on GB even though I only have one thing to submit.  

I wrote up the Nathan Drake page.

Yeah so if you created a list to complete the E3 Quest post a link here and I will showcase it no questions asked. E3 blogs are also welcomed!

What about reviews that have nothing to do with E3 :P?

Posted by ZombiePie

@Video_Game_King: Doing that also. However bogs that give grades to press conferences will be dealt with extreme prejudice.

Why? They're already swamps, so won't more punishment and hatred just be cruel?
Posted by Mento

I made a series of blogs that have almost nothing to do with E3, and that one list that everyone else has also made. But yeah, feel free to not include most or any of those if you get flooded with awesome E3 stuff (also sorry for like the 3~ identical PMs too, there was a weird glitch.)

I've still yet to finish up my E3 blogs but I've just finished writing my list of most-anticipated E3 games and I think it's pretty well filled out. Thanks ZombiePie.

Working on my E3 blog. Electronic Three has gotten me in the writing mood.

I've done video blog posts for Microsoft and EA's press conferences. I'll post links for my videos for Ubisoft, Sony and Nintendo once I get those up.
