The Community Spotlight - 11/03/2011

 

Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight. As always there are a few things to go over before diving head first into the Spotlight. The first major one being that there is a thread where users are asked to report all broken or unplayable YouTube videos. On the matter of video quality non-subscribers should note that in the future all trailers and developer related content will be posted in HD for everyone. Jeff has also made some changes to the Trackmania 2 server worth checking out and is disappointed in the lack of users on the Giant Bomb server. Also with the reveal of GTA 5 please remember even though the GTA V trailer is out don't submit fan speculation on the Wiki Entry for the game.On top of that with the 2011 Spike Video Game Award Show coming up check out and fill out the wiki page for the event. With that out of the way remember to subscribe to the GiantBomb YouTube Channel as well as check out the Bomb Shelter for all of the latest great community good works I'll leave you with this hilarious Bombcast Illustrated video:

What about that time I commented on a Spotlight you ended up deleting? Or am I thinking of Vito_Raliffe's contest thing?

And also a post from me.

Is VGK the first person to get mentioned three times in the same spotlight? Or is that the usual limit?

Was my Bill Murru pumpkin not good enough for your pumpkin carving standards?

I support this Bill Murray pumpkin deserves a mention.

For the first time in a long time I've not managed to produce a blog this week (go me). Hopefully I'll have something next time around but in the mean time it's great to see everyone else's work here.

Thanks for the mention ZPie :)

First review I had felt like writing in forever, really dug the game a lot. Forgot how much fun I had writing them.

Man, Skyrim is far more modern than I thought. Why'd you bail out of the stream after three hours, though?

None of you caught the massive typo this entire week in the Best of Blog section...oh well I'll leave it as is.
