Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight and I, @zombiepie, am honored to be your host this week. E3 2017 is honestly breathing down our necks. By the time we've dabbed away its drool the first batch of conferences will have started. Be that as it may, be aware the Giant Bomb staff are in the process of moving their equipment. This means content on the site will be minimal until E3 proper begins. Upon which... it'll be time for a lockdown.
