Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Community Spotlight! The updates continue at a steady pace just look at the new News Page. That's not the only good news as the second Big Live Live Show is all set for September 9th. The interns have been belting out the enjoyable video content with a new Kessler Kam and an anime edition of Dog Deep by Lemon. Sadly but true interns aren't to last forever. So with that please check out Intern Undeadpool's send off as his internship has ended. With all of that in mind please check out the latest edition of the Community Spotlight as presented by mracoon:
Community Starlet- Featuring Mento!
When bringing back the Community Starlet one of the things I wanted to do was highlight not just users who are well known for their community content but those that might fall under the radar. That's why this week's ComStar is awarded to Mento.
Those searching for insightful, humorous and atrociously-named discussion about videogames would be wise going through Mento's blogs. He covers a plethora of topics from a comparative look at Baldur's Gate II vs. Dragon Age II to what makes a good achievement and even a hideously-named retrospective on From Software. People ask where all the thoughtful and well written content is and it's right here.
Mento also has a thing for lists as he's created 19 of them. Some select choices are 'Fun With Anagrams', 'List of Wizards & The Things They Find F'd Up', 'Character's Better Suited for Tycho's Chair in "Poker Night at the Inventory"' and 'Acrostatic' reviews.
I haven't even got to the best part yet, wiki subs! Yes, Mento has earned over 6500 wiki points and they were mostly gained from two pages: War Wind and Birthright: The Gorgon's Alliance. Never heard of them? Me either but thanks to Mento we have more information that we'll ever need about these two classic PC titles. One other page to look out for is the, for once, brilliantly-named Jelly Boy whose titular character, from reading the page, doesn't sound like he's actually made out of jelly.
