The Community Spotlight - 11/17/2011

 

 Many Thanks to FoxxFireArt for the Banner This Week!

Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! After much discussion the mod team has decided to add "Community Highlights" to the Community Spotlight which will replace the previous "Noble Notables" Tab. This ensures that threads which encourage long term creativity continue to be encouraged and highlight but prevents the General Discussion Board from be cluttered with Anchored topics making it difficult to navigate the forums. Beyond this there are other major announcements worth talking about. Staff member Daniel would like you to know that a new item in the Whiskey Media Merchandise store is going to be announced soon. The Skyrim Marathon from last week is being archived on Giant Bomb for all users. Here's Part 1 if you haven't noticed.  Wall posts have also been changed slightly, read about the changes if you can. Finally as always remember to check out the Giant Bomb YouTube Page as well as the Bomb Shelter for all of the best of the best of Giant Bomb. So with that here's Lemon's latest Bombcast Bombination video:

Man, there aren't a lot of lists this week. I should probably get started on my "Things My Temple of Elemental Evil Level 10 Party Could Beat Up" list.

@Video_Game_King: Why do I get the feeling that "Mento's Temple of Elemental Evil Party" would be at the top of that list? Good thing it's not on the wiki.

@Mento:

Real talk.

I was going to say that you should feature the Master of Orion page but you've already done it. Praxis did some awesome work and if you want to know about the first 4X game then it's worth reading.

Do something. The standards aren't high.

@Video_Game_King: I guess I should nominate myself. I'm so dumb. I really liked my last Claude's Candy Corner: Skyrim blog. Poetry and art and all that farts.

I wrote this thing about Nintendo...

Thanks for featuring the MOO page this week. I have to say, the complexity of a 4x game is somewhat maddening from a write-up perspective. My outline for the gameplay section had something like eight bullet points in it, and I was still wondering as I wrote it if there was something important I had left out. All the same, I enjoyed doing a wiki edit with very different demands from the ones I usually do, so I'm glad you guys enjoyed it enough to spotlight it. I'll probably have another edit of a classic PC game ready in time for the next spotlight, knock on wood.

Edit: Apropos of nothing (Thanksgiving, maybe?), I have completed a significant revision to the Populous page, which you're welcome to use this week.
