The Community Spotlight - 12/15/2011

 

 Many Thanks to User FoxxFireArt for the Banner!     
Hello and welcome to the Latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight!  If you haven't noticed Whiskey media is getting into the Christmas spirit by launching a new 12 Days of Whiskey 2011 Quest Set! Remember that for this quest set you can't just complete the whole thing in one sitting. GB user kortex is running Community 2011 Awards, so if you see one of his Topics pinned remember to vote in them. Now with Star Wars: Galaxies officially closed down for good check out the archive for the End of Star Wars: Galaxies in case you missed it. Dave Snider wants you to add Santa Hats to as many images as you can now that there's a "Fun" ability when you upload images to the site that will automatically add a Santa Hat to any image. Jeff has announced that the Game of the Year podcasts will most likely be OVER 6 HOURS LONG! So when those get release get ready to invest a lot of listening time. Finally...and I don't really know what to make of it. Someone on YouTube has synced the Giant Bomb Endurance Run with the Persona 4 anime. The end results are...hilarious:

Spotlight's super busy with GOTY stuff this week, which is no surprise. I don't envy you having to compile even more of it in the last two spotlights of the year.
