Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight and I, @zombiepie, am honored to be returning as your host this week. After a brief technical hiatus thanks in large part to Final Fantasy X-2, I am back! To no one's surprise Splatoon 2 was the big video game hit everyone was talking about this week. Other major talking points include Supergiant Games's latest offering, Pyre and the 2017 edition of the EVO Championship Series. So, without further ado, let's review a couple of housekeeping items before enjoying a smattering of community created goodness.
