Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight and I, @zombiepie, am once again honored to be your host this week. There's a lot to marvel over from the Giant Bomb community. The video editors among us had a blast with Abby's new "Thirteen Deadly Sims" series. In terms of games, the community is still buzzing about Monster Hunter: World and Dragon Ball FighterZ. Speaking of Dragon Ball Z, have you given the "All Systems Goku" podcast a try? With all this in mind, let's review the few bits of Giant Bomb housekeeping I have for you this week.
