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. With the Summer months right around the corner and E3 2017 beckoning, the Giant Bomb community continues to turn out some amazing things worth talking about! The Giant Bomb Community Endurance Run has one week to go, and there are some great videos to watch this week. With that, let's go over the site related housekeeping for posterity sake.
- Are you having issues using Edge on Giant Bomb when watching videos or posting comments? Let out a yelp over here, and the engineers will try to get to the bottom of it.
- Giant Bomb user David dubbed Jeff's voice over the Hot Dance '98 version of Block Rockin' Beats. Be warned, it's still bad.
