Thanks for the Nipples This Week UncleJohn0525

Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight, and I, @zombiepie, am honored to be your host this week. Well it appears that we have all survived the glorious return of the Big Live Live Show Live! If you have any thoughts about the event that you still want to share head on over to our official discussion thread for the event here. A special thanks goes out to all of the users that watched the stream and maintained civil and appropriate conduct throughout the event. Also check out the heartwarming video that one Giant Bomb user made for their girlfriend while attending the BLLSL after-party. In terms of the state of the site the engineers are working on fixing issues with attaching threads to wiki specific pages. Finally Mr. @rorie wants any users that have been getting bum expiration dates for premium subscriptions on PayPal to drop a comment over here.

Clips of the Week

We have a record breaking FOUR videos this week! The first is a teaser trailer from @wallofbricks for Metal Gear Scanlon 4. Next we have a Metal Gear Scanlon 2 "super-cut," from @viper. After that we have the latest episode of @turboman's "Best of Giant Bomb" video series, and this episode is all about the best moments from Metal Gear Scanlon 3. Finally we have a video from FallingDesk that animates Jeff's hilarious "I play every game to the max" Bombcast moment.

Man, that Hush video is one of the best-edited highlight things I've seen on here.

Not enough dong in this fan art. Need to make it accurate!

But seriously, another great Community Spotlight!

Thank you for featuring my Combo Breaker preview! My compliments to the 4 people who's videos are in clip of the week, loved them all!

The point wasn't really to compile statistics on MK characters game appearances, but a visual representation of how lazy Midway/Netherrealm got post MK3 in their character design. That and my disjointed theories on why some characters succeed while others fail.

Regardless, glad it made it up there.

Question: Why doesn't this show up in the forum? Articles written by the crew do but this doesn't seem to exist there.

@nightriff: That's my fault. I didn't realize there was a separate button I had to press to link articles to the forums. It should show up now.

@marino: all good, I was just confused why the community spotlight of the forum never showed up in the forum since it was moved to get more views and attention.

Thanks as ever for putting these together, it's really helpful to find any great content that I might have otherwise missed (which is easy to do when there's so much of it being added every week by users).

It looks Dan is missing a nipple, I can't unsee that T_T

Love your fatality, @fobwashed!

That "Hey Jennifer" video is fantastic =)

This was an interesting article to read:

Why I Feel as a Source Engine Modder Allowing Monetization of Mods is a Good Idea (By:@wazanator)

And this one:

R4: Ridge Racer Type 4 Gives Me What I Need (By: @grantheaslip) Love the idea of getting what you need instead of what you want out of a game. Cool article with Persona 4 reference?

Thanks! The “gives me what I need” part was ripped out of the opening lyrics – don’t read into it too much! I’m bad at coming up with titles :).

Part of me wants to see that Mount Your Friends image on a shirt...
but another part of me feels like I'd never wear it, since I know I'd get some weird stares from people if I did.

I'm not sure why but I haven't watched any MGS yet. Those videos really tell me I should be watching them. Great job putting all this together every week Zombiepie.

Great stuff this week. I get a real Asterix & Oberlix vibe from the mount your friend artwork.

Games of Video in the Year 1992 CE

Least necessary use of CE goes to...

Anyway loved the clips. It amazes me how talented people are at editing something a day or two after it comes out.
