The Community Spotlight - 09/08/2011

 Special Thanks to GB User FoxxFireArt for the Banner!

Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! As you already know this is the week of the second Big Live Live Show Live! Despite the task of having to organize such a mammoth undertaking there are still a few notable Staff related announcements to go over. Firstly Dave has a Set Top Box App Status table for interested users to check out. Secondly if you have recently subscribed a Whiskey Media membership Dave would like you to know about when you should expect your coupon for merchandise in the WM Store. Finally there's now some sort of Whiskey Media Trading Card Meta game going around the site? I don't know but check out this thread if you want to have a marginal understanding of the situation. Beyond that Ana of Tested video fame has recently celebrated her birthday so see if you can wish her a belated Happy Birthday and remember to check out the Giant Bomb Bomb Shelter for the best of the Community's User Created Content.

I came here to save a troll.

Also, content!

I really dug the Castles of Dr. Creep wiki. I love it when older and/or obscure games get fleshed out wiki pages.

I sold the exclusive rights to Nintendo for use on the Wii U. After six months, it will go multiplatform.

My Fallout 3: Point Lookout review. Take a look if you have the time!

EDIT: The reason it is fairly short is due to the fact it's for DLC and it's the first time I have written for quite some time!

I made a thing. It's floofy.

We got that Blog Initiative, which seems like it'll help keep these Spotlights well supplied, but I think we should have something to get more people to make lists too. It would be neat for our Top Men to revamp the list feature, but they're got their hands full with the significantly more important subscriber set top box stuff. I suppose I'd prefer well-written blogs than listicles, I guess. I mean, who wouldn't? Besides Cracked.com readers?

Out of interest, does the Community Spotlight feature guides if ones written? I'm thinking of doing some in the future so was wondering that when I do them, could I put them on here?
