Man, busy week for Giant Bomb. VGK will be pleased that you haven't equated him to some horrible tyrant this week.

Congrats to all those featured, especially the few that made it to the Rad Community Stuff area.

He seems to have given that up, for some reason.

There's only so many tyrants he can use for the comparison.

I'm actually recovering from coming down with bronchitis and this week just belted this Spotlight out as quick as I could.

The doctor gave me nothing. No cough syrup, no pills, nothing. He just told me that I would recover in time and that I would be fine in a couple of days. So that means no codeine induced blogs from me this week.

Prepare to feel like shit in those few days. Consider that a warning.

I wrote a review for Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception I hope you like it enough for it to be mentioned in the next community spotlight. It is actually my first proper review ever written, so anybody feel free to help me improve my review skills (or English, because it's not my native language).

This Year #18 -- The best of Idle Thumbs! Six hour best-of. If you could use your sway to get this up on the community page, that would be pretty cool as well.
 
Incidentally, our next gaming recap will be for the Giant Bombcast!

As requested. I could probably stick all sorts of things on that list, but it would require that Screened's database be compatible with our own.
