Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight and I, @zombiepie, am honored to be your host as always. Next week is PAX Prime 2015, and that means that you can fully expect the Giant Bomb Team to have plenty of ridiculous nonsense for you to enjoy. As with all major events that the Giant Bomb crew attend please be aware that it takes time to archive and post any video content on the site, and that events do impact regularly scheduled events like UPF. With that here are a few reminders about Giant Bomb at PAX Prime 2015:

The Mario Party thing was fun at first, but the last one you did was just crap, it was so boring... you need to drop that series.

So what you're saying is, this is all Patrick's fault.

@jackelbeaver: Not at launch, and probably not in the form we're used to, i.e. it won't be his first playthrough. Plus, with the open world structure of the game, the run-time might be so much longer than any other MGS game that it's just unfeasible unless they go back to the Persona 4 Endurance Run days. With that in mind, I'd love to see it.

I really like @somestickguy_'s Giant Bomb TV intros. Can't wait to see what he does next (fingers crossed there's another coming!).

Somewhere on Youtube, there's a Bombcast clip that makes this joke go full circle. For the life of me I can't find it.

@gaff: Blame Mr. @zombiepie.

As I have mentioned before I am a full-time teacher, and out of habit call people using their honorifics.

Oh hey, I'm in there? Neat! Thanks @zombiepie!

Always glad to help and feel free to keep me posted on any new topics or blogs that you post on the site!

No word yet, but then again I'm not entirely sure if Dan's commitment to the game actually became what he said it would.

So what you're saying is, this is all Patrick's fault.

@csl316 said:

LEAVE PATRICK ALONE! My theory is that Patrick is going to be a guest commentator or panel host for the event, but that's just me.

So like...is Metal Gear Scanlon 5 gonna be a thing? I feel like I'm really unclear on this...

Drew has mentioned that he plans on playing The Phantom Pain on his own prerogative. Playing a new release this big to completion within its launch window doesn't exactly help your relations with publishers.

Just in case it gets lost in the shuffle here's my new Life is Strange thing. It's good to be writing on here again.
