Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight and I, @zombiepie, am honored to be your host as always. Apologies for this Spotlight airing behind schedule, but the good news is that the NFL season has officially started! Yeah to sports! Anyways, as the doldrums of the "summer game drought" come to an end as big releases start to sneak up on us, there are a few site announcements worth sharing this week:

Clip of the Week

  • @gruebacca is making a Giant Bomb themed level in LittleBigPlanet, and has a trailer of how his progress is coming along! Learn more about the level set in the "Best of Blogs," section.
  • @theburlaplemur has created another episode of his Bitesize Bomb video series. For those that don't know the Bitesize Bomb video series seeks to locate the funniest moments of EVERY Quick Look on Giant Bomb, and this episode recounts the insanity of the Game Room Quick Looks.

  • Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Game Guide - The user created guide for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is truly a sight to see! Check it out if you find yourself in a pinch.

I put out another video this week too: This one's a Contradiction opening! There's even some freezeframe Giant Bomb-related easter eggs in there:

Thanks @zombiepie! Always a good roundup of the community content, even with how often I'm on the site I feel as though I always miss something cool that shows up here.

@graboids: Incredible work. "Visionary who tolerates Dan" really had me cracking up.

Your poster is amazing @graboids! It's incredible how much work was put into the art only to destroy a third of it for Dan. Bravo.

If Dan doesn't dress up as Cheese Face for Halloween, he's missing out on an opportunity. If I were him, I'd run with it because it's so awesome (and stupid).

I recently stumbled upon a weirdly in-depth wiki page here for some obscure fighting game that I think is worth spotlighting!

I still can't get over how Oestreicher looks and feels like a Metal Gear Character. That poster is perfect.

The community spotlight is written by Zombiepie, Marino just posts it to the front page since ZP is still technically a moderator and couldn't post it there himself.

Hey hi! I'm putting together a game-making resource list in this thread! Let's get better at making games so we're ready for the next Giant ROM game jam, which is coming later this year! :D (Also holy crap Game Maker Pro is like SIX DOLLARS on the weekly bundle! Go get that!)
