The Community Spotlight - 03/04/2017

If you can put Zelda down for a few minutes, we have a new edition of the Community Spotlight to show you.

It was a week featuring the highest of highs, and lowest of lows. Hopefully everyone here thoroughly enjoyed Giant Bomb's Nintendo Switch launch coverage and other general tomfoolery.
