Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight and I, @zombiepie, am honored to be your host this week. With E3 2018 right around the corner, everyone seems to be buzzing about surprise announcements and new game reveals. Additionally, this will be the eleventh E3 covered by Giant Bomb. We are all so very old. As a result of the staff needing to prepare for E3, there will not be a Friday show. So, without further ado, let's jump into the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight!

  • The 10th Annual E3 Banner Contest!!! - Banners are due THIS FRIDAY! The creative prowess of the Giant Bomb community is in full effect! Here's a quick "taste" of some of the AMAZING banners the Giant Bomb Community has managed to create.
