One of these days I'm going to have to get back on the blogging circuit. I think Deus Ex Invisible War would work nicely, don't you?

Also, I beat Claude this time, for what that's worth.

I'll be back with a vengeance. I'm busy learning lines for a play. I can't wait to get under that spotlight.

@Claude: Oh Calude...you were sorely missed and now all is right with the world.

Hi ZombiePie...Want something random? I spent a bunch of time creating a thorough wiki for The Castles of Dr. Creep, an old Commodore 64 game. Wouldn't mind it if you featured it. Thanks!

Always happy to showcase the hard work users put into random fun games most people have never heard of.

Right on! I went to PAX and made a video.

Since I clearly won't get my Duke blog out in time for the next Spotlight (it's been done for a bit, but image problems prevent its release), I'll just advertise my Parasite Eve blog instead.

These posts should be more prominent. I wouldn't mind seeing it in the news feed. Being relegated to the community feed limits the potential. I end up missing it a lot of the time.

Personally I have refused News Status. I prefer if they are blogs and appeared as user works and not staff works.

I'd ask if you've refused Bomb Shelter status, but it's a moot point when several of these have made it into the Bomb Shelter. That just brings up a new set of questions:
 
  • Did you win the "community content" battle?
  • Are you better than the interns because of this (you don't feature the Bomb Shelter here, do you?)?
Posted by ZombiePie

@Video_Game_King: You may or may not have noticed for the last few Spotlights I have posted "and check out the latest Intern created content on the Bomb Shelter." Also the interns and staff use the Community Twitter account GiantBombSquad that I manage to decide what they should post on the Bomb Shelter.
