Special Thanks Go to @saik0u for the Artwork This Week!

Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight, and I am honored to be your host as always. Let's enjoy our very own Mario party this week!

State of the Site and Housekeeping

Unfortunately there appear to be a handful of issues on the site worth mentioning. Firstly, if your premium subscription has mysterious disappeared the staff are asking that you contact support@giantbomb.com. If you have received a "The CSRF token is invalid," message on the site please let out a yelp over here. Finally the engineers are working on getting the notification system back to where it needs to be. With all of that noted let's get on with the latest episode of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight!

Clip of the Week

Special thanks go to @turboman for yet another awesome episode of his "Best of Giant Bomb" video series. Also...Oxyrain on YouTube added all of the Giant Bomb staff to his Tomodachi Life game plus Dave Lang and recorded a cafe conversation they had...for twenty minutes straight.

Awesome Artwork

A big THANK YOU goes out to @lcom for making an awesome batch of Dave Lang themed Valentine's Day Cards which allow you and your partner to enter the "Lang Zone" during the aforementioned February holiday. Paul Ryckert discovered how to use Photoshop. The Giant Blurb Tumblr account is still hitting it out of the park. spacedongle made a work of art featuring Drew wearing the Crocodile Hat from Metal Gear Solid 3. @humanity created an awesome banner for Dan's new "Danswers" feature, and @kirlia is the one to thank for the animated shouting/angry Drew this week.

Community Activities

  • Giant Bomb Magic the Gathering Group - thatpinguino is Trying to Start a Community Online Group Over Here!

Wonderful Wikis

Our wiki for #IDARB is here to tell you what all of the hashbombs in the game are. It's still winter so you know what that means! Yup it's another HD Remaster Hyper Edition that exploits your nostalgia for financial gain! This week it's Majora's Mask and Grim Fandango!

Best of Blogs

Saik0u is the user to thank for the banner this week, whereas LCom made the awesome Dave Lang Valentine's Cards! BlazeHedgehog has a video and blog post sharing his review of Sonic Boom and the last year in games. Gruebacca questions the purpose and point of Far Cry 4's story considering how little care was put into it. Mento wrapped up his blog series pertaining to Lightning Returns and shares his final impressions on the game. DevourerOfTime blogs about the games getting released during 2015 that he is most looking forward to. JBG4 not only provides a weekly update on his gaming, but he also shares his thoughts on the status of WWE's RAW brand. Mario Galaxy and Geometry Wars 3 absorbed MooseyMcMan's last week, and he is joined by TonicBH who spent his week with Counter Strike, Borderlands 2, and many other games. thatpinguino is still tinkering around with his Magic the Gathering deck, but he also has a new "Deep Look" about why his play style for Dark Souls 2 is so wrong, but so "right." Ford_Dent explains why he thinks the themes of lose and decline are what really set apart Kentucky Route Zero from any other games he has experienced. Finally a new month means that MajorMitch is here to give a monthly gaming update, and BlackLagoon has a list of all the games coming out for the PS Vita.

Fantastic Forums

Feel free to join the Giant Bomb Community's intense discussion about the latest Persona 5 trailer...it's almost as if there are a lot of Persona fans on Giant Bomb. If spoilers are something you are interested in exposing yourself to you might want to check out Game of Thrones or Apotheon discussion threads. Finally share your impressions of the end of the Club Nintendo Rewards club, as well as your last video game themed dream or nightmare.

Lovable Lists

LisaTiffany has a problem, LisaTiffany has a bunch of untouched PS3 games that have never been played, and you can read all about it. chilibean_3 on the other hand has taken the time to list his favorite games of all time.

@zombiepie: It's a Vinny line from the Best of Giant Bomb video you embedded, from the Dying Light Co-op video. Vinny just on the ball lately.
